Motorcycle Madness

This clutch.

I was fortunate enough to try it on at the Alexander McQueen store in Las Vegas.  The glove fits perfectly and it detaches from the bag by snaps.  It's my dream bag at the moment.  Anyone spare $875?

Getting Ready for Spring

Florals - I'm finally on the bandwaggon and thanks to urban outfitters and their fantastic sale/cheap accessories, I've added two new flowery fabulosities to my wardrobe to prove it.

I bought myself some hipster/ray-ban-esque sunglasses.  They were $10.

This photo is from Mod Cloth because the dress is likely sold out from Urban's sale (I found the last one in the store and it was marked down to $29.99 from $128!).  Looks like it's sold out from Mod Cloth as well, but fear not, if you like it you can add yourself to the mailing list for when they re-stock.  I'm vacationing in Costa Rica in March, so this little number looks like it will come in handy.

Word of caution: I have no intention of wearing these two items together.  Neither should you.  One floral at a time, people.  One floral at a time.
