About a month ago I became obsessed with this Erin Wasson LowLuv Knuckle Armor Ring, but of course, it was sold out everywhere. Big frowny face. But, as it was an obsession, I kept looking for it and today found it on sale again! Big smiley face!

It's on preorder, so it won't arrive until sometime in June, but at least I can let some of obsessions recede, as it definitely will come to live with me!

P.S. - It's also available in gold.

What I Want Now: Ethnic Printed Hobos

I really quite love all of these, though I feel as if the very first and very last ones are calling my name. These would be perfect to wear with floaty maxi dresses or even jeans and a simple tee during the summer.

The . Gold . Watch

When I was at JCrew a few weeks ago, one of the SAs looked impeccable. Her outfit was cute: cotton knee length skirt, simple tee, black cardigan, and sandals. But what really helped her to stand out was a beautiful gold watch. It was just one piece, but it made her look classic and polished. It would be nice if I could scoop up a pretty Dior or Rolex, but I opted for a less expensive (but still pretty!) watch from Kohls.

Kate . and . Her . Jewelry

Kate Lanphear always dresses impeccably. She can mix low-cost with high-couture, and pull off the mix in a way that has everyday appeal. I'm particularly in love with this look, as not only would it be a breeze to replicate, but it's wearable come summer, fall, winter, or spring.

Summer . Date . Night

B. and I don't go out and do very much (read: anything other than New Year's Eve) that requires fancy clothes. Most of our date nights include going to the movies or grabbing sushi. Still, it's nice to get at least a pinch dressed up for even a simple date.

Barbara . Walter . Jewelry

First of all, no, not that Barbara Walters.

As I was trying to track down a ring for someone today, I stumbled across the home page of Barbara Walter, a jewelry designer who lives in New York. I was immediately taken in by her pieces - each one is a whimsical little story, and I had to pry my eyes away from the screen. Getting to wear one of these little gems would be absolute accessory perfection! She doesn't mention where, if she does at all, that she sells her jewelry, but it may be worth a little stalking to try and obtain such lovely work!

New . Bags

It takes, like, nothing to get me to want a new bag, or two, or even ten...

(wind blows lightly...)
Me: Oh! I need a new purse!

So when new bags come out each season, it's very difficult to not be independently wealthy, and it takes will power of epic proportions to not whip out my CC every other day. These pretty bags above are just a handful of the SS 2010 offerings that I've been covering. Le sigh...

(1) DKNY Quilted-leather chain-trim bag, $345
(2) Valentino Tulle rosette bag, $2,790
(3) Miu Miu Mixed leather tote, $1,750
(4) Proenza Schouler PS1 Large suede satchel, $1,995
(5) 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie studded leather handbag, $700
(6) Valentino Ricamo Shining Flower tote, $4,495
(7) Miu Miu Cat-print satin clutch, $795
(8) Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Bow glazed-leather shoulder bag, $305

Pretty . Peacock . Purse

I've had my eye on this vintage velvet peacock purse for sometime now. The embroidery on this bag is absolutely stunning. I don't use smaller bags often, though I feel this would be just as marvelous sitting on a shelf amongst other pretty little things!

I'm rarely a fan of delicate jewelry - I prefer weightier pieces that are a bit more attention-garnering; things that definitely do not blend into an outfit. That said, I'm positively head-over-heels for the rings that Catbird has to offer. For jewelry that's made with precious metals and gems, their prices are quite reasonable, which would make it all the easier to buy a few of these to wear together!

Creatures . of . Comfort

Creatures of Comfort is an online shop where I'd like to buy up pretty much everything. All of their items have a distinctly modern edge, but still manage to stay feminine and very (as their name implies) comfortable looking. I'm particularly in love with those first two dresses! I love the draped fabric, yet each dress still has a slim waist, so you wouldn't end up swimming in too much fabric.
