    What I bought this week: New glasses

    Item(s): Airframe Bold Oversized eye glasses, in Crystal, from Jins.

    Things I Would Buy: For spring, if I wasn’t saving for a Burberry trench coat

    … Burberry trench coats have become so expensive (I bought mine when they were like $850 a piece), so I’m holding strong on saving and I’m almost there. If I had less self-control, this is what I would buy for spring — the grand total for it all is still less than a trench coat 🙄. […]

    Things I Would Buy: To wear with my red Mary Jane shoes

    … honestly, styling those red Christian Louboutin Vernica shoes is tough. Considering the shoes cost so much, I’m not going to go and specifically purchase expensive dresses to go with them. This is mainly an exercise in dream dressing. Item(s):1- 1999 Commes des Garçons, Red Sequin Dress 2- Saint Laurent, Mohair Turtleneck Sweater 3- Nili […]
