I’m really digging some of the natural accent decor pieces available now at Crate and Barrel.
Much of it is easy, light and neutral, which is basically how I want to feel.
This hurricane is oversized enough to be a stand-alone centerpiece:
It’s hard to appreciate the scale of this driftwood bowl.
Here’s a picture for perspective:
It would work on the floor or as a centerpiece.
And then there is this bowl:
I love the addition of these stones to it all:
Ok, this hoodie from Raw Threads is pretty awesome.
Lately, I haven’t felt like shopping all that much.
I’m still looking, but nothing’s really striking my fancy.
All of these earrings from J. Crew fit the bill of like-but-not-enough-to-buy.
The lucite and gold ones are my favorite.
These are random things I stumbled upon this weekend, as I alternated between cable news (Ugh) and escapist TV.
Temps were -7 without windchill on Saturday.
These Fabletics leggings feature Powerhold technology (whatever it is, I want it), trendy rose gold and back zippers on the lower leg, which is a feature I love.
They would look great with this jacket:
And this gym bag:
Sadly, these cozy slipper are sold out in my size:
But this cute tee from J. Crew Factory isn’t! It’s called “Party Animals.”
Lastly, this is a huge splurge. I was lucky enough to get this completely frivolous item for Christmas, and it was perfect – something I loved but even I wouldn’t spring for it.
The scent is nice, the texture is perfect and the container is oddly satisfying to hold in your hand. What a treat to use.
There’s something about this metallic tote from Loeffler Randall that keeps catching my eye:
I think it’s the pom poms.
Here it is in action:
The price is too steep – $395 – to justify an impulse purchase, but I may keep my eye on this in case it goes on (major) sale in the future.
I recently went way down a rabbit hole with the concept of accessorizing my bags.
I blame Henri Bendel’s “Dress Up Your Bag” campaign, but of course I am very weak and susceptible to all things Shopping.
I purchased this colorful guitar strap to add to an old Marc Jacobs tote, but the clips on the end were too small to attach to the tote’s hardware, so I had to improvise with some rings that I bought at a craft store.
I was going for a vibe like this:
I also picked up two of the perforated luggage tags, one pink and one gold. These are planned for different bags.
As I fell deeper down the rabbit hole, I discovered a whole world of customized pieces on Etsy, including an upcycled Louis Vuitton tassel. I haven’t had good luck with Etsy in the past, but I decided to give it one more try.
I honestly can’t tell if the Vuitton strips are real or fake, but I really don’t care. The tassel looks cool to me either way. I added this to my pink and green trimmed bag from the Spring 2017 collection. I was really pleased with this purchase, and the shipping was really fast. I think it took fewer than 4 days from order to arrival.
The tag was also personalized with my initial:
One more shot for scale:
This was a cool find.
