Sitting here in the McCarran Airport getting ready to catch the red eye home to Philly. Had a great trip. Eating, shopping and sightseeing like a tourist, haha. Our room was really nice, the rental car saved a lot of cab $$ and I bought some goodies that I'll have to post when I return.
As a precaution to my air travel this week (FYI: I hate flying) I made sure to stock up on some goodies for the plane.
Cooking Mama was good and I can't wait to play this one, I haven't opened it yet and I won't till we leave. How AZN and NERDY of me.
We leave on Friday night and it's a red eye flight so I am going to attempt to sleep on the plane. I bought this to make it a little easier. It's so SOFT!
And of course my carry on will be filled with some good gossip mags and maybe a magazine or two of real substance. (I'd like to bring the new Vogue but it's HUGE and I don't really want to lug it there and back.)
One last note, this website GuidoFistPump.com, I think the Jersey Girl section is probably the BEST thing ever.
So I was watching SATC the other night while cleaning my room and I happened to watch this episode (see title).
Personally Fendi does nothing for me. I think the Spy bag is atrocious, I don't get that weird closure thing (is it a coin purse?) and I hate that the handles look like they are falling apart. And none of their other bags are even memorable enough for me to even bother posting pictures.
Anyway, I know this bag in the picture below is old news considering that season three was probably happening in the late 90's but I want it. Something about the purple sequins and I guess theoretically the baguette itself is not such a terrible style. Now where am I going to find this?
OOOHHH!!! Sex and the City movie out on DVD TUESDAY!
Leaving for Las Vegas on the 23rd, a week from Tuesday. Derek and I are staying at Excalibur, haha I'm like a princess in a castle. I'm totally riding the NYNY roller coaster and shopping my butt off at the Fashion Show Mall, The Forum at Caesars, and the Wynn.
I bought the most fabulous Theory cashmere zip up sweater. It's a red giant roll over collar 3/4-ish sleeve waffle knit 100% cashmere dream. I want it to be fall asap so I can wear it. I'll have to post a picture once I stop being lazy and get my camera out. I have some ebay auctions I want to post and they all need pics as well.
I also ordered a Jcrew boyfriend sweater. I kind of thought I wasn't going to buy into the whole boyfriend sweater trend but they're just so comfy and they flatter most silhouettes. Not quite cashmere, but definitely not your Grandmom's itchy wool nightmare.
Featherweight Merino Glass-Button Cardigan $88.00
Long and lean: the silhouette of the season with faceted Czech glass buttons. Extra-fine merino wool in a 14-gauge knit. V-neck. Rib trim at neck, cuffs and hem. Long sleeves. Patch pockets. Hits at low hip. Import. Dry Clean
It isn't shipping out until October 7th! But this color was by far the best, I love the contrast black buttons. I like it so much I was thinking of getting the bright rubarb.
And to wrap it all up.... I am thinking of buying this vintage Chanel tote in black leather. The dimensions are. Height 14'', Width 14", Depth 3 1/2", and Strap Drop is 12 1/2." I like it because it's discreet, has the woven chain strap and the quilting but it doesn't SCREAM Chanel with the giant C logo, and it's nice and roomy to use for school.
I've only recently gotten over my decision not to buy the Chanel Robertson Blvd. Rodeo Drive nail colour. I just can't bring myself to spend over $30 on one shade, $20 for Chanel is not a huge deal at all, but $30 for a tiny thing of nail colour! I was fine spending the $25 when I thought I could just get it from Neiman's or Saks or something but when I saw that it was only going to be available online from Chanel.com +$7.00 to get it to my house or in the store, which was not happening any day of the week, I died a little inside.
So I bought the next best thing OPI. Wide brush, long lasting, and reasonably priced at around $8.00.
OPI "Do you Lilac it?"
So, I never got into the Black Satin, Black Noir Chanel colors. Reminded me too much of 7th grade Wet and Wild nail polish and it just didn't sit right with me. Recently my boyfriend's Mom came to visit from Florida and she had on this darkish grey color for her pedicure. I was instantly sold. Not quite black, not light grey, more of a warm grey or taupe color. OPI's "You Don't Know Jacques" was what I found and quite possibly the color her manicurist/pedicurist Connie used considering Connie has colors before I even know they exist like the Chanel Azur I got a pedicure with last spring and the color I hunted EVERYWHERE for when I got home.
OPI "You Don't Know Jacques"
So I'm calling it now, and if no one picks up, I have an awesome new color all to myself!
Lots of shopping, but surprisingly I didn't come home with anything. Pretty much spent the day in SoHo, but we hit up a few other places on the way, Tokio7, Ina, and Pinkberry, MMMmmmmMMM love me some coffee with carab chips!
Anyway from what I saw at the SoHo Chanel I'm considering a Jumbo Caviar Leather Flap Bag. I think with my height that anything smaller is just going to look too small on me and I need to have the caviar leather because I will destroy lambskin.
I've been thinking about a few other things, I need a new belt.
32 mm reversible leather strap in Chocolate/Orange, Box/Togo calfskin (width : 1.25" ) & 5382 buckle, silver and palladium plated Ref. 052000CAAA095 & 052170CK05 $570.00
I want something plain and that's going to last. I think this Hermes style is minimal chic and while a little bit pricey for a belt I'll have this forever. I really like the orange color and it's reversible to brown although there's a blue/black option that makes more sense since I barely wear anything brown.
Some jewelry choices on my mind....
Kelly Double tour bracelet, (2.5" diameter) Ref. 054695CC89 $410.00 I think this bracelet is cute. I'm kind of worried that the clasp might get in the way but I still like it anyway. I'm wondering if it's available in any other color.
Mini Chaine d'Ancre Necklace in silver with horseshoe pendant (length 15.7") Ref. 104066b00 $410.00 Cute necklace in sterling with a horseshoe, something I've been looking for.
11mm New Albion Ring This ring, just not in this stone. The store in KOP said they can make it in my birthstone Pink Tourmaline.
Oh and I want to try this....
