As much as I love having my own apartment, making my own schedule, picking out my own clothes, and feeding myself, today I wish I was 2. My feet are dying to cram themselves into these adorable little shoes from Diddle Dumpling. Her felt shoes and quirky embroidery make the perfect gift for a baby showers, birthday, or just because you can’t buy them for yourself. Hmmm… I wonder if I could convince the dog to wear them.
HOW TO FALL IN LOVE with a bag
Like any self respecting city girl who lives in a shoe box, I have entirely too many bags. This is just a fact that I have come to live with, and I don’t see things changing anytime soon. With that being said i bring you my new 4 favorite bags (Only 4? — well I have to draw the line somewhere.)
I love tiny animal prints and the Polar bear parade bag ($68) handmade by retrofied satisfies my wishes without being too kid-like. I love the added bonus of the key clip inside the bag, as i hate having to dog around for my hefty janitor sized keys when I finally make it home at night.
Continuing on my animal print kick the Mockingbird Handbag ($75 CAN) from prickly pear is just wonderful. Its simple enough for a night out, or everyday use. Its also shallow so I know i would never been hunting for things way down at the bottom.
I have wanted the bird on a wire bag ($68) by puckish for at least 4 years. Its stitched and screen printed in yellow against a brown bag and is screaming your name. The bungee cord straps, and polka-doted lining make this bag really unique.
The handmade classic tote in caramel by madebyhank is definitely my personal favorite. It’s big enough to carry a few books, a couple magazines, keys, gum, wallet and maybe even my corgi. I’m such a sucker for bags big enough to lose myself in, and this one is a must have.
