While I’m thrilled to say that both my diet and my budget have been carefully managed and as successful as possible (I’ve dropped 7 pounds thus far! And haven’t had an ill-advised buying binge in months! Although, those may be related – I’ve cut my drinking way back, and my bad purchasing decisions have historically been fueled by vodka), two unfortunate facts remain:
- I’m still on a strict diet
- I’m still on a strict budget
As I’m no longer allowed to put decadently fantastic things in either my closet or mouth, I’ve taken to trolling the Internet for the sheer vicarious thrill of ogling that which I cannot have. It’s official – the following items, locations and treats are my version of porn:
Good God, is that not gorgeous? At once earthy and delicate, simple and yet made with a complex wrapping technique. Designer Dana Kellin’s jewelry runs hundreds of dollars, but I would happily pay that for such a great statement piece. You know, if I could afford it.
Shoshanna is that rare label that designs for a body that is almost exactly like mine – a short figure that carries its weight in it’s upper body (boobs). I have yet to find a dress in this line that looks bad on me, and I’m praying that they never change their fit model.
Also, I’m completely enamored with the belt on the second dress. I could get a lot of use out of that.
Don’t you just want to dive right in?
