I adore Emily's pretty blue bag over at Some Girls Wander (over the last few weeks her blog has been consistently amazing), and I think it influenced a few recent purchases from Etsy, as well as a number of fruitless searches for kisslock purses.
This blouse from seller leoluca was waiting for me in my mailbox today and I am absolutely smitten. Not only is the colour perfect, but it has ruffles. It's quite flattering, too, I think. Oh ruffles, you work wonders. The seller drew a little bird with "Hello from Berlin!" on the package and it made me smile. I cut it out and put it on the fridge -- it's the little things, folks.
The Etienne Aigner flats from vintagerevolver arrived yesterday, and while it snowed today, I can't wait to wear them out in a few weeks' time. They are darling, and in perfect condition.
Today I discovered my face on a Ffffound post, and it made me blush a little bit. I am also thrilled that Alyson at Unruly Things liked my post on the Book Cover Archive. Books are beautiful things, although this is what I have done to my books. No longer can my shelf brag that I own really important books, which is for the best as I have hardly read most of them.
