houndstoothy

I had a ball shopping in Korea.  There is such a plethora of neighborhoods, boutiques and independent designers that it makes it difficult to edit your purchases.  Not to mention that the prices are fair and quality quite good.  I picked up this equestrian cap and houndstoothy skirt at a local boutique and they’ve been my go-to pieces ever since I got back.

Moustache Man and I grabbed a New Year’s Eve lunch at Electric Karma.  It’s the type of place where you sit cross legged on silk pillows, the smell of spices and sounds of Bollywood over powering the senses.

polka dots + moonbeams

I popped into Buttons & Bows a couple weeks back and picked up this polka dotted number.  It’s easily become one of my favorite dresses and I’m sure it’ll be a staple in my summer wardrobe.  In other news, I’ve been earnestly trying to break in my hi-topperoos by kicking, scuffing and general dirt stomping.

FLOATING GLASS

A little nude nail polish and voilà, floating rhinestones.  Purists need not worry, it comes right off.

Like, whoa

Moustache Man and I were taking a stroll around the neighborhood when we came across a shop selling LD Tuttle samples.  Of course I had to do a little browsin’.  Imagine my delight when I found The Clear Pipe.  I was obsessed with the pipe heel a year back when MM showed me The Keeper, but it never made it to production so I couldn’t get my hands on it.  My heartbreak is all but forgotten.  I couldn’t be more pleased to stomp around, twirl and do a little dance in my iron heeled LD newbies.

I’m rounding up links . . . leave a little note if you’re feeling it.
