There’s You and There’s Me: Capiz Blossom Pendant

Posted in Decor Files, There's You & There's Me by Miss Circumstance on February 2, 2011

This is a picture of Jcrews Luxe store dressing room on the Upper East Side of New York, with the gorg’ flower light pendant that I see every now and again. I don’t know who makes this light (I’m sure some of you do. Feel free to share), but I know it is very expensive, and will never appear in any home of mine.

I was looking through one of the many catalogs that come my way and found this…..a possible Me version-

Not quite the same, I know. But could work?? It’s from Pottery Barn Teen of all places. I haven’t seen it in person, but am thinkin’ it could achieve the same kind of look for a fraction of the cost.

So This Is What A $250 T-Shirt Feels Like…

One of the blogs I read on a consistent basis is Olsens Anonymous.  I love Ashley’s laidback taste, I think she has a wonderful sense of style that is the perfect balance of casual and “put together”. 

For a while now I have been on the lookout for the perfect v-neck T-shirt. Then last week as I was doing my daily check of Olsens Anonymous, and there it was, the perfect v-neck!

I instantly began my search to find said T-shirt (and keep in mind that I had no idea what brand said T-shirt was).  I started by searching through the Olsen Twins mid range clothing -Elizabeth and James.  No luck.  I then decided to check the Olsens high end designer line – The Row.  And there it was!  The perfect T!  This was however, a very sad moment, seeing as the shirt was a whopping $250!!!  I felt discouraged for a moment, and then decided searching for the shirt on sale was worth a shot. And what did I find you may ask? I found THE EXACT SHIRT ON SALE FOR $62!  I realize this is not cheap for a T-shirt, but for me it was worth it. 

It came in the mail yesterday, and it is the softest fabric I have ever felt in my life!

You can pick yours up here.

Check out these awesome Jeffrey Campbell clogs, courtesy of my lovely friend Ashley of Love Letters. I have recently decided that I love tall shoes, even though all three of my new pairs escalate me to over 6 feet tall. This particular pair of shoes is a knock-off of the ever-fabulous Chanel Clog….

But really, how many of us can afford Chanel clogs… Or, Chanel anything for that matter. And that, my friends, is when we turn to our good friend Jeffrey Campbell, always there to keep us stylish, and out of debt at the same time!
