Things I Bought Thursdays...

First up, a birthday present for my dear friend Julie. I finally got a chance to use my wrapping paper from Riffe Raff. Julie is definitely worth stellar wrapping paper!


And now for the mildly guilt inducing items... I was seriously plagued by an insane sale at Barneys this week. I used my eBay earnings and bought the purse I've been coveting for 75% off ... I also succumbed to some super cute shoes (also 75% off). I've officially abandoned my quest for the brown dress in case your wondering...

Doesn't it feel great to share good wrapping paper with those who truly appreciate it? There are only a small handful of people in my life who are worth the good paper!

Vivi said...

Love that clutch. And it's going to transcend into the fall so easily...

Rachel said...

Gorgeous wrapping job!

And the purse and shoes are so lovely, I can't fault you for buying them. Especially at 75% off.

I am so glad there isn't a Barney's here in Canada, because from what I've heard about their blowout sales, I'd be living wearing fantastic clothes and living in a cardboard box. Those shoes are really adorable, and the purse so simple and summery! Nice scores.

Lovely, lovely shoes. Simply stylish clutch. You may have saved 75% off the items, but now you are going to have to drag your sassy self out on the town to show them off. That is bound to set you back. Never mind, I am just envious.
Enjoy your new finery.

Those shoes are just awesome. I would never take them off my feet! Who makes those?!?

Kristin said...

I LOVE those shoes. They're fantastic!

(And I'm so happy that I'm not alone in reserving the spectacular wrapping papers for only those who would appreciate it! My mother-in-law who wraps gifts in tinfoil and plastic bags from the grocery store? So not getting any pretty papers from me!!)
