T for a Cause

They weren't the first and I'm sure they won't be the last to help out...but Gap has worked out a way for everyone to both help Japan and show their support in their time of need.

*men's sizing only
Profits from the sale of the T's will go to GlobalGiving's Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. "Lift Japan" T (right) and Crane T (middle) are both gap.com exclusives.  The Heart Japan T will be available both online and in 12 select Gap Flagship Stores.  Show your support and get a sweet t-shirt out of the deal!

Ugh, I've totally been in love with this brand since they launched years ago...

PINK by Victoria's Secret
Medium Wheelie

I have this bag in a different print...think MORE neon colors...duh.  Totally helpful when trying to spot your bag coming up the little ramp at baggage claim.  It was not what I was really looking for as it's slightly bigger than the allowed carry on...unless you get bitchy... like me...and CRAM it into the tester thingy to prove your bag meets the allotted size requirements...which doesn't make the airline people happy but it's not about them is it?  Ha!  Holey run on sentience!  Loves it!

Tickled Pink

Why I've become obsessed with a Brand I shouldn't make a habit of buying due only to it's HUGE retail markup is beyond me.  I'm sure it's only because they've hit on one key obsession of mine...HOT PINK...because before now I haven't stepped foot into a Kate Spade Store.  I find the designs to be boring and overpriced but now Miss Kate is speaking my language!


Esses Small Scout
I'll probably have to pass on the bag...unless I hit the lotto...or someone hits me with their vehicle and I get a huge settlement!  The shoes will be mine...I can get some serious use out of those...after all a girl needs shoes...right?

Ugh, I need a part time job just to pay for all of the things I want!

Seriously?  Prada, why do you not have this on your site?  I need to know how much they are and where I can get them...or at least try them on!  Super fab...at a total loss for words.

Saw these in the April issue of teen VOGUE...yes, you read that correctly I read teen VOGUE...not only read, I have a paid subscription.  My theory on that...well I can't really afford anything in VOGUE...so I thought "Well...teen VOGUE, I must be able to afford something in there."...when really I think it's made for the kids of the rich people "shopping" out of Vogue.  Sigh.  Newly obsessed.

I'm a Lover...

Ugh, I hate that it took Forever 21 to make a cool Pit Bull tee.  Looks like I need to get into the graphic tee biz.  I have all kinds of great ideas...

I'd totally share them but what if someone with skills reading my blog "borrows" my super cool ideas...no I think I'll have to broaden my craftiness to include t-shirt maker.  I've done one offs after all.  Now to find the perfect do it yourself screen print kit...

FINALLY!  I've been a T-mobile customer for 12 years...I was not super into being constantly connected until recently and thank goodness for that because I didn't have to wait long for Verizon to come out with the iPhone...as in I didn't care until October of 2010 that I wasn't an iPhone user.

I made the switch in early February and naturally I had to find the cutest case out there...shocker it has hot pink!  The inside reads "Have Courage"...as if you'd ever see it after putting it on but nice touch none the less.

So, I might just regret posting this...you see I haven't gotten around to buying this just yet and I fear it will be sold out once I get into a Banana Republic but I have to share the awesomeness.

Banana Republic 
Looks even better in person...but don't take my word for it...go see it for yourself...try not to buy it...I DARE YOU!

Check out that weave...

Innocently browsing my local Anthropology I walked right past this lovely...hit the brakes...and put it in reverse to closer inspect what I'd almost passed up!  Two words amaze ing!  The coloring is perfect, the leather is mushy but sturdy and the small tight weave detailing is right on point!

Maybe you need to see it in person...or I've sold you with words and images...whatever it takes...if you are in the market for an amazing new bag constructed with quality that won't break the bank or put you to sleep with its simple "But it goes with everything!" design...this is the bag for you...happy shopping!

So I really love Zoe Chicco jewelry...and her other line Smith...the more accessible aka less expensive line of fashion forward jewelry.  I picked up the rings below a while back in Sterling Silver and I LOVE them. 

$48.00 each
Smith by Zoe Chicco
(shown with oxidation)
 You can get them with our without oxidation...I opted for no oxidation...I have a bit of experience in making jewelry and I know that the metal will oxidize on it's own and I wanted the more natural look.  Wanna trade up?  Get the same rings in rose, white or yellow gold on www.zoechicco.com.

Life's a Beach

So...isn't it about time you looked fabulous with all of your accessories when you're there!  Do you need a beach blanket?  Maybe...probably...  

Catnap Beach Blanket
 I didn't buy this when I had the chance...I'm sure that decision will haunt me...but I don't have actual beach plans until November so you see why I had to be rational and walk away.  Besides I'm a fish...I don't lay around on the beach...but I do find myself considering it just to have an excuse to buy this!
