Burn These Bones

Today I stopped by the highly anticipated Opening Ceremony sample sale with somewhat low expectations….and hit the footwear jackpot.

I left with 3 pairs of shoes that I’ve wanted for ages, but were out of my budget, even on clearance. They were marked down to only $50 from the original retail price of approximately $450 per pair.

These will be the perfect everyday shoes for when spring comes around.

I’m tempted to dye these oxford heels black, but the brownish/burgundy color is so warm and rich…what to do??

These wedges are so lightweight and comfortable, and I’ve wanted a pair of beige/nude shoes for a while now.

Having humongous feet came in handy for once!

If you’re in New York, stop by the sale, the highlight of which is definitely the shoe selection.

same old story

Indeed…it’s the same old story: once again I am going insane…completely inundated with finals, work, drowning under loads of paperwork and the hassles of moving (appx. 7,500 miles away from New York! more on that soon…)

In the mean time, here’s my new favorite piece of jewelry: the infamous Delfina Delettrez ruby skeleton hand bracelet. The movable joints are the best part, obviously!

Not mine to keep, sadly. But there are a bunch of new purchases I want to share when time allows!

EDIT: Almost forgot about this Zara skirt from a while back.

Even though I quite like them, I almost never wear skirts, out of sheer laziness- usually running late/ too tired in the morning to put on tights or look for the right top to go with.

But there’s something so easy and irresistibly appealing about the tulip silhouette and drape of this skirt! Paired with an AA sheer burnout circle scarf draped over a Rick Owens tunic.

a perfect circle
