I Want this Bag

Last night I was doing a bit of harmless screen-shopping and I came across this Philip Lim 3.1 bag at LaGarconne. The combination of contrasting cream and black leather and bronze-colored snakeskin trim immediately caught my eye and the slouchy, oversized shape stood out amongst all of the dainty clutches and handbags. It's big enough for the usual must-have purse items plus my camera, shoes, lunch, water bottle, notepad, and scores of other stuff I

Style: Chasing the Moon

I saw these silver earrings while browsing at The Little Mahatma during the OTR/Gateway Celebration a few weeks ago.

The man knows his stuff--I'd been there less than two minutes before he

Casual Style: Back in Black (Sandals)

Remember when I was desperately looking to buy black sandal-booties and then wound up getting the gray "ugly-but-cool" shoes instead? Well, I soon realized that I still needed black shoes. I love the gray booties, and while my favorite shade is holding down about 60% of my current wardrobe, there's nothing like a black shoe to really ground a look and toughen things up a bit. Soooo
