I was browsing the Urban Outfitters site for dresses. What do you guys think of the following?
...I could never decide on just one! I may very well clean out a third of her online store.
I'm going through a hat envy phase. I like them, but I'm scared of choosing one. Hats seem to thematize your whole outfit, whether it's a fedora, newsboy, beret, etc. But on paper, hats are great for me: I have a hatty head, I burn on cloudy days, and I fiddle with/break other accessories like rings and necklaces.So I've been casually looking at some hats that I think I would actually wear. Most of the hats I like are close to the head, cloche style, but I'm open to any style, so long as I don't look like I'm 65 years old (or 3 years old). (Or Indiana Jones, or a dominatrix, or Al Capone...) I'm also open to alternatives: feathery headbands? I don't know. Help me out here.Banana Republic straw cloche in cream: $30
Urban Outfitters straw bow cloche in brown: $34
Village Hat Shop belted cloche in white: $17
Village Hat Shop sur la tete Monaco sunhat in white: $23
Anthropologie The Brightest Hour hat: $24
Hats in the Belfry braided contour cloche: $44
I probably need a more grown-up bag. The one I've been carrying with the cracked handles is, how you say, ghetto. I've been on the lookout (i.e. gilt.com) for something in the $100 - $300 range that I can use daily, but nothing's really caught my eye, or if it did, then I didn't get to it in time or I was never sure if it was the one.
They are only $18. I think probably the first one. They are sooper dooper cute, no?
I've been eyeing these Frye boots since they first appeared on the Urban Outfitters site last fall. Now they are on major sale. (Hooray!) Question is, do I get the Ava Button boots or the Adrienne lace-ups (and if those, then in brown or in plum?). I threw a pair of "fancy" Uggs and Charlotte Ronson's black booties for comparison. I also like the Miss Sixty black flats and white Via Spiga sandals but probably won't get them.
I'm not really sure if it's infatuation or not, but I cannot stop thinking about a pair of stockings I saw in the window display at MaxMara today. I know it sounds absurd, but please hear me out.
I have never bought a handbag for more than... $35, I think, and that was a black Guess mini-bag (what my friend Jane calls an 'armpit bag' because it fits neatly right under your arm like that). I liked it a lot and it served its purpose well as an all-purpose bag.
