a bit of time was set aside today to be spent with mandy & jimmy. after a quick lunch with jimmy at empire cafe, mandy met up with us, and we window shopped along westheimer & kirby. happily, we all came away with something – mandy nabbed a lovely pair of cream and white vintage nine west loafers, jimmy found two vintage ties, a silk christian dior, the other an yves saint laurent. me? i got my hands on an amazing silver reindeer suede and silk-lined skirt suit set by donna karan. which reminds me… i haven’t done a “recent purchase post” in some time. a few days ago, i finally managed to find a suitable leopard print to add to my closet – a vintage silk maggie london wrap dress. additional recent purchases: (L-R) sterling & garnet scatter cocktail ring, vintage sterling plaque bracelet printed with the word “risk”, 10k white gold and natural diamond aquarius pendant necklace, and 10k yellow gold and natural emerald and ruby strawberry pendant, an early christmas gift from my parents.
