American Apparel Riding Pants & some bling

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Sometimes a little bling, with a super simple outfit is all it takes. Vintage, of course.
So I pulled out this exquisitely detailed beaded gold clutch that I found via thrift months ago. I paid a little more than I normally would for this beauty (which is still mere pennies to most mortals) but I kept trying to walk away from it and I simply could not.  It's just so stunning!
Seriously, I'm not even sure if these pictures do it justice. 
(And these American Apparel Riding Pants have become a serious staple lately...)
Anyway, the bag - it's in mint condition and truly lovely, and since celebrating my one year blogging anniversary, I'm just feeling so gooey inside for all my devoted readers, who keep lifting me up and making me smile on a daily basis, that I just can't help but want to keep giving things away!
Check back in Friday to find out how to win this clutch!
I adore you all from head-to-toe! Don't let anyone ever steal your joy, because you help bring me mine in so many ways.
Happy Wednesday! xx

  16. I have similar pants from 'pull and bear' that are about 8 years old (and currently are a bit tight). when I get back in shape, I'm gonna try wearing them with a looser top.

    Lovely purse. A real dose of glam.

  17. Oh! I'd love for you to pop over to my new blog and tell me what you think...contentwise.
