Hope everyone had a great weekend! 

I think it’s obvious that I like bags, shoes, clothes…hence the fashion blog. But bags and shoes are probably the hardest thing to resist. I know many of us have that “problem”.  My sweet hubby surprised me with this bag after I might have expressed slight love for it.  And I also might have said that I’m done buying bags for this year…and it’s only March. Wish me luck! 

When it comes to pieces that come with a price tag, I only have one item on my wish-list. And that one thing has been on my wish-list for years. Like most things, it goes on sale once in a blue moon, and when it does…it’s gone veeery fast.

 Therefore, I might be stalking a couple of websites hoping for a miracle (yep, it’s the Valentino Rockstud flats with the t-bar straps). So you better believe I didn’t pay full price for my gray Valentino’s.  In case any of you are interested to know how to possibly get them for a bit less, leave me a comment and I can do semi-lenghty post about it…since we can’t chat about them over coffee.  

Wishing you a fantastic day loves!

      Hi, thanks for letting me know that you're having trouble with the links. Is it just slow to load (and it never loads) or nothing comes up? Try coping this link into your browser and see if that works: 🙂

      I just get a blank page… Copy/Pasting the above link didn't work either. 🙁

      Okay, it has to be something between rstyle and my Firefox bc I pasted into Safari and it worked. Thank you for that link!!!
