& the BUG PIN from Fall 08
Ladies, I love me the Bug Pin. I don't wear it often, but I think it is so odd that I simply can't help myself. In a world where we all take ourselves so seriously, I look down at my little bug and think how fabilis it is to have some whimsy in my life. Even if it is in the form of a goofy, ill-sewn and falling apart bug pin.
& while we are talking about bugs, I have to digress onto animal prints. I was never an animal print type of gal. I like my solid colors. I like to play it safe. The only other real "print" I have is the J.Crew Collection Serengeti dress from Fall 08. But this dress is such a cool bunch of shades of purple, I just had to have it. & the material is something so different. It's very structured, which is interesting because the color and the look is so girly. See it reviewed by Dina at My Superfluities.

Last but not least, I received a wonderful birthday present from my girl Soraya, at The Outfit of the Day. I don't know about you all, but I love stationary. I am a paper ho, if you will. You give me some good paper products and I'll love you long time. In this digital day and age, loving paper is a dying art, I think. Well, I digress. My gift was comprised of note cards from The English Tea Paperie, set with a gorgeous heel and my name at the center. Check out her wonderful blog and see what she has to offer because I can tell you first-hand this made my day. They are gorgeous! On top of that, TOOTD hooked me up with a sweet little Coach wristlet and a book, A Guide to Elegance, in my favorite color, Tiffany Blue. The wristlet will work miracles for moi, who is always traipsing around with my iPod Touch, keys, money, and ID Cards - this is a perfect solution - and the book is something I can't wait to crack open on a lazy Saturday on my deck with a glass of white wine.
What a wonderful finish to my exam day.
