shopping fever

23 August 2011
i don't know if it's the heat, but i've had shopping fever lately! i'm usually pretty judicious about purchases (and almost never pay retail), but i've had the "wants" lately. below is my menagerie of recent purchases, except for the ring. my mom splurged on this aquamarine beauty as my "something blue" for the wedding! it's actually quite delicate in person and the aquamarine is the palest shade of icy blue.

How sweet of your mom to get that for you! My mom actually gave me my great-grandmothers icy blue earrings that are the real thing for my wedding day. I felt so honored to wear them and can't believe that they're actually mine!

They are all very practical purchases. Those ARE the most comfortable flip flop ever!! That ring is stunning. When is the wedding?

That ring is so gorgeous! And I know what you mean about the "wants" - it must be back-to-school shopping withdrawal!
