i'm not going to stop. i'm just not.

Really, I won't stop. Being awesome? Good guess (and true). But not what I'm referring to (plus I just can't stop being awesome. I tried. It was painful).

What I won't stop doing is wearing this vest.

What can I say? It's PERFECT. It's really a very versatile piece I am finding, excellent for the sort of weather we are having (the versatile sort).

Well, for once I am afraid I haven't really anything to say. But I would like to ask a favor from all of you. You see, I want a brown suede fringe bag. Vintage, new, old, dark brown, caramel, whatever. Just so long as it has a shoulder strap (can't be expected to carry a bag AND a baby). I figure that will be my one purchase for the month of June (see here).

So yes, if anyone stumbles across one whilst roaming the web--let me know!!! Oh, and one more thing, under a hundred bucks. Because the tall hot man who buys me stuff isn't made of money. He's made of tall hotness.

outfit details:

dress, thrifted: $3
tube dress, worn underneath, thrifted: $1
leather vest, danier: gift from husband
shoes: $10
glasses, vera wang via $68
sparkly bracelet, tiffany & co: gift from husband
sparkly jellyfish, made by God: from the ocean (and tossed back in, albeit it was already dead, nonetheless, we didn't keep or eat it)
