New Purchases Make Me Happy

I made a few purchases today that I'm supremely happy with.

First there's this Jovovich-Hawk for Target top I picked up today:

I like the draping and Grecian style, and the fact that it's soft and loose. I was a little disappointed because the two pieces in the collection I was most excited to see in person and possibly buy were the linen vest and that absolutely adorable linen bag, and they weren't in the store.

Oh well. I'll have to try again some other time. The sizing and quality of the line is too variable for me to risk buying online.

My other purchase is the necklace I'm wearing in the above picture. Here it is close up:

I bought it for $20.00 from a younger girl in my neighborhood this morning. She and her friends make this amazing jewelry (in lots of color combinations), and they held a crafts fair today. They are donating half of the proceeds to a school in Sudan, and the other half goes toward their supplies. I asked my neighbor if she would be interested in selling to you guys through my blog, since I think the jewelry is so pretty and the cause is so good. She hasn't decided yet, but we shall see... Anyone interested?

I love my necklace, though! I know I said I hated chokers, but apparently I don't. So Wendy, you can stop being shocked and disturbed by my aversion to chokers now.

Yay- I love buying new things!

OMG! I totally saw that at Target yesterday! Did you see that cute black, lace dress? I wore that to a wedding yesterday with my leggings (yes, I'm still into that trend!), blue shoes, and black cardigan. I'm in love with their couture-inspired line. The necklace and black top lookg fabulous on you! I see we have a similar taste ;)

Well, now you need to give me something else to be shocked and disturbed about. I can't just sit around being all happy and shizz.

good girl gone shopping- I did see that lace dress. I was tempted to try it on, but I didn't want to get roped into buying it when I have so many party dresses I haven't even worn yet:)

wendyb- How about the fact that I never wear rings? Does that work?

ambika- Most of the opalescence is actually from the yarn (well it's not really yarn...I don't know what to call it) that the girls used. Unusual, but I love it.

Artfulwears Jewelry
What makes an outfit complete? Some believe its shoes, others believe it’s that perfect hairstyle, and still others believe that it is the makeup that makes the outfit complete. One thing that always makes an outfit look finished is jewelry. It used to be that gold was the standard jewelry that everyone wore, but sterling silver jewelry has become much more popular and is now worn by famous women at all the big award shows.
