This Week’s Online Shopping Haul

Once again, my wallet had a mind of it’s own.  Here’s what I bought this week and can not wait to receive!

Banana Republic The Mad Men Collection animal print cardigan: I obviously love leopard, when done right, but after reading all of the great blog coverage this new collection has been getting, I needed to won a piece for myself.

Old Navy Crochet Cross Front Wedges: I was reading one of my favorite blogs, SkinnyPurse.com, and came across a great “summer uniform” story that my friend Andrea wrote.  I’ve been looking for a new black wedge for awhile now and I’m thinking these are exactly what I’ve been looking for.

From Italy, With Love purse: You can seriously find the best things on Etsy.  I’m pretty obsessed with these little change purses – the artist uses real letters from Italy and prints them onto vintage sheets to make these. Obsessed.



Gift Idea: Clarins Gold Attraction Eye Quartet and Liner Palette

So when I saw Clarins limited edition Gold Attraction Eye Quartet and Liner Palette, I was instantly in love.  First off, the seasonal palette is inspired by Venice (only my favorite city in the whole world) and, as quoted by Clarins, “the light and sumptuous radiance of Venice: its beautiful golden palaces, their facades with subtle colours and patinas and the unique architecture that allows light to seep through the fine stonework.”  Um, couldn’t have said it better myself.

The gorgeous silvery pink can be used for eye base and the natural beige can be used for lids when a subtle look is desired.  OR, apply the pearly yellow gold with the deep golden brown shades and combine the dark chocolate eyeliner to intensify and illuminate your eyes.  Ah, I’m having flashbacks to Ponte Rialto as we speak.  And, since this particular palette is a limited edition, it makes a perfect gift for your old BFF from study abroad.
