if i wasn't limiting my purchases of new things due to the wardrobe refashion pledge, if money grew on flowering spring trees, i'd delightfully purchase any of the following lovely things... for starters, these hoopla earrings by ryan kundrat, available at stars and infinite darkness:
i adore the bit of rubber that ryan has inserted in these minimal sterling hoops. it apparently comes in a myriad of bright colors. subtile but yet rather bold, all at once.
this striped scarf may be a product of a mass marketer (jcrew), but is undeniably lovely to me, with it's woolen texture, bright yellow color (bright yellow is one of my favorite colors o' the moment!), and tie dye treatment, making it feel a little artsy and hand-hewn:
it could be worn as a scarf (natch!), but also as a headscarf or even a belt. would look killer with dark denim anything, or textiles that embody an emerald hue.
petite pouches like this are ever so versatile, allowing for use as cosmetic purses, a bag to store little knitting supplies, or even jewelry bags for traveling.
i love that the heel is actually wooden (at least i hope it is, as i abhor fake wood on shoes...UCK! it looks cheap!). the detailing on the top of the shoe is exceedingly lovely and actually quite a bit graphic...right up my alley. i see them as the perfect addition to tight dark jeans with a handmade orange dress over top.
