Shopping Haul - 4.27.12

I got a knock off Alexander McQueen style clutch off of ebay after lusting heavily over the real thing recently. The quality actually isn't terrible, and it was only about fifteen dollars. I can't imagine I'll have too many occasions to use it, but it was cheap enough that I didn't mind skipping lunch at a restaurant to fund it.

I also went out to grab some things in the city a few days ago. I stopped by Neiman Marcus and finally got to pick up Deborah Lippman's Good Girl Gone Bad nail polish along with Glitter in the Air.

I also stopped by the Disney Store, where I honestly didn't expect to get anything. Then I found this adorable Bambi themed linen spray. It's clearly aimed for use with baby clothing, but it smells really nice and I like to be able to freshen up my closet occasionally. Initially it smells a bit like candied pineapple to me and I kind of fell it love with it.

The last thing I got for myself were some chocolates.

Back row, left to right: Pistachio Cup (pistachio buttercream) Cacao Forte (99% Dark Ganache) Blue Cheese Truffle (soft blue cheese & dark chocolate rolled in almonds) 

Front row, left to right: Key Lime (fresh key lime juice in white chocolate) Fleur de Sel Caramel (caramel infused with grey french sea salt) Bananas Foster (banana and caramel flambeed with rum)

While I was looking I asked them to tell me which was the most unique chocolate that they had and they brought out the Blue Cheese Truffle. The taste was definitely unique, smokey and subtle and delicious. It was definitely my favorite of the six that I got.

Le Petit Prince - Outfit

I got new shorts from h.naoto recently and I had to build an outfit around them as soon as possible. You can't see it in this picture, obviously, but they have amazing frills and a really cute bow on the back. I haven't dressed in anything close to kodona style since high school, but I still love the look.

Top - h.Naoto GRAMM
Shorts - h.Naoto FRILL
Tights - ASOS
Boots - groove [hot topic]
Vampire Fang Blood Vial Necklace - suppurate system

because there's nothing more manly than having a bow on your butt...

Happy Easter - Bunny Pin-Up

I don't traditionally celebrate most Christian holidays, so "Easter" to me is mainly another excuse to gorge myself on delicious food and spend time with family...

One of my closest friends, Tiff, took this shot for a pin-up calendar project she was doing a while back and I'm still amazed at how she can make even me look sexy. This day makes me miss her a lot.. I remember her inviting me over for an Easter meal she had cooked herself while we were both still in college. The food was delicious and she made me feel so at home, constantly telling me I was too skinny and how she needed to fatten me up. She treats me like family and has always been there for me.

So, Happy Easter, Tiffy. I love you.

And everyone enjoy what's left of their Easter Sunday.
Check out Tiff's lovely photography on her Facebook page.

All Saints Siouxsie Jumper

I've had some issue with AllSaints' customer service as of my last few online orders. I'd be through dealing with them if they didn't sell so many things I lust after. This morning, after some turmoil and one lost package, I acquired the Siouxsie Jumper which I'm pretty in love with. It's super comfy and like most items I've gotten from AllSaints the 0 fits me relatively well.

I also took a few low quality photo booth pictures since I'm currently lacking a tripod.
