It’s Saturday afternoon and I’ve spent the whole day cleaning. Here are some of the things that currently make me happy. Four are gifts, three were bought, but in any case, they all bring me joy.
Smythson of Bond Street 2011 Panama diary, Kiehl’s #1 lip balm, Byredo Pulp eau de parfum, limited-edition John’s phone (this cellphone is perfect for those of you who want to take a break from tweeting and text messages), Lanvin oversized floral bow tie, Yazbukey Karl Lagerfeld brooch, Accessory Lab black tourmaline bracelet.
Are you enjoying the holiday shopping season? There are tons of SALE promotions everywhere. I swear to god, my heart beats faster every time I see a 'sale' sign and I always have to remind myself "Stop. Must. Save. For. Future."
I saw this hysterical sign at the ION shopping mall in Singapore yesterday morning.
Suddenly don't feel bad about the treats I got myself: a new pair of Lanvin shoes and a Marc Jacobs bag.
I think I've worked VERY hard this year…a treat (here and there) is well-deserved, no?
I have to express my sincerest gratitude to the wonderful folks at H&M for giving me first dibs into the Lanvin x H&M collection two days before America got theirs and five days before the rest of the world. Although I bought a few pieces (we were limited to seven items!!!) at the private shopping event, I consider myself incredibly lucky. I contemplated queueing when the collection was launched in the US over the weekend but the concept of being in line for hours, many hours, along with rabid shoppers is not really my cup of tea. Some of them were out for blood…
I got myself a gorgeous little treat from Fallon jewelry sometime last week in the form of this spikes n' crystal stunner. It's a piece from their Resort 2011 collection.
NYC-based Dana Lorenz (of Fenton/Fallon) makes some of the chicest and edgiest jewelry out there. Her collaboration with J.Crew earlier this year brought her to my radar and I've been tracking her baubles since then.
I bought a new camera today. It's my first DSLR camera: Canon EOS Rebel T2i. I also got some 18-55mm lens. It's time to upgrade, especially after using point and shoot craperas, I mean cameras, for over six years. I know many of you style bloggers have multi-bajillion dollar Canons and Nikons but I'm not a photographer by nature so this entry-level baby is perfect for me.
Thought I'd take a shot of my humble closet at the Soho Grand Hotel as I organize my things…
