Wishing Wednesday… Something Blue!

Dean Harris Lapis Lentil EarringsDean Harris Lapis Lentil Earrings $950

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue! Yes, I’m still in wedding planning mode and although I already have my ‘something blue,’ these Dean Harris earrings would be fabulous to add to my outfit for my wedding attire! Now, who would like to buy these and be so kind to lend them to me as my ‘something borrowed’? 😀 Anyone..?

I will say that I did try looking for blue earrings and nothing within the price range I’m wiling to pay for (not more than $50) were remotely enticing or what I am looking for. I somehow stumbled across these and of course, it totally lives up to my champagne taste on a beer budget tagline! 😉

Currently Coveting… Jewelry!

I am working on paring down garments in my wardrobe and have put myself on a self-imposed ban. (Although, I did recently add a sweater to my wardrobe but I was replacing another sweater that is worn out.) As such, I have been shopping for jewelry to add to my collection instead. I have since added two bracelets, two rings, and a necklace to my collection!

In my opinion, jewelry is a great way to accessorize and complete an outfit. It is also a great way to add color or a delicate/edgy piece to reflect one’s style. As a person who considers herself to be fairly conservative style-wise, I find jewelry to be a great way to add some sparkle that isn’t screaming for attention. Here are some that I am currently coveting…

  1. Adia Kibur Multi-Stone Necklace $78
  2. Anthropologie Vespero Necklace $58
  3. Ann Taylor Pearlized & Jet Bead Statement Necklace $78 (use code THANKS for 40% off till Nov 26)
  4. Anthropologie Heirloom Cluster Posts $28
  5. Anthropologie Enamel Petal Posts $28
  6. Anthropologie Crystal Collision Posts $48

On a side note, I am selling the YSL ring I have here. I will also have more items up in the coming days as I purge my wardrobe. Do check it out! 🙂

Shopping Haul from Uganda

So I just returned back to “civilization” bout 2 weeks ago. I had been living and working in Uganda for 16 weeks for a fellowship. I was really good with curbing my shopping temptations 99% of the time until it came time to leave. Yes, time to buy souvenirs and guess what? I think I ended up spending more money on myself than on getting souvenirs. Hah! Anyway, enough rambling. Let the pics do the talking!
