fringealicious, Kimalicious, and just plain delicious

So I've made no secret of my fringe bag desire. Only what I wanted was a brown suede fringe bag, not an orange one! But I think I am completely happy with this bag. See the pics? See how happy I am? YES, clothing and accessories do have that happifying affect on me.

Now, I've always loved the colour orange. So I was very pleased to see it all over the runways this Spring! And crazily enough (hey, crazily is a word! I know this because my spell check didn't angry red line it. Happyifying, btw, is not.). Right, where was I? Ah yes- crazily enough, apparently fringe bags are "in" as well. Now, if you look at my posts you will see that my fringe bag desire predated fashion week. So how was I to know? Well, probably there was a fringe bag somewhere in some magazine, on some blog, some ad, that worked its pretty little fringey way into my subconscious and whispered: "need me". Either that or I'm psychic.

Fashion psychic.

Um, yeah. So here I am. Here's me with my purse. We're very happy together.

Also, this scarf shirt thingy--fun hey? I have had this scarf since the summer and haven't really worn it. But I LOVE the pattern. So I thought I would wear it more like a shirt. I have it pinned at the sides so it stays put. And on my feet, did you notice? sandals!!! Oh, the weather was PERFECT for sandals, in between bursts of driving rain, that is. Though I swear there was purely sun when I ventured out (apparently I am not weather psychic).

Oh, and there was this totally AWESOME rainbow today. It did this: red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo, violet, blue, indigo, violet--yes! There were extra colours! Rather, colour repeats. Whatever, it was pre-tt-y!

Okay. I'm done. My husband brought me home groceries for dinner making and flowers for nose sniffing (and eye looking). Then he left. Yes. I'm a renovation widow. It has been like this all week. I miss him in the evenings. But also I get to watch chic flicks. The Devil Wears Prada, here I come!

  8. I love the scarf as a shirt idea. I've seen it before, but I don't think I'm brave enough to ever try it. I'll just look at your pretty pictures instead.

  9. Can I tell you how much I LOVE this? The bag is awesome, it complements the colors in your outfit perfectly. This may be my favorite so far!

  10. The bag is an outfit maker. Great find. I absolutely love your writing style. It is so honest and full of sense of humor. Your blog is a pleasure to read.
