I just love a good themed outfit, don’t you?
About a month ago I went to a friend’s bridal shower, and I thought it would be appropriate to wear my kitchen utensil dress. When it came to accessorizing, I went with my favorite DIY(ish) KitchenAid mixer necklace, AND my new oven purse! The whole theme came together so easily 🙂
Then this past weekend we went to a barbecue at a friend’s place, and I felt it was a good excuse to re-wear this same outfit – since I love it so much!
I have found that this blog has not only helped me to be a little more creative when mixing/matching clothes I own, but it has also been a good resource for those times when I don’t know what to wear. I can just peruse my gallery until I find something I feel like putting on.
So, let’s talk about this purse for a moment. I had been obsessing over it for months, since I first laid eyes on it. It was really expensive (for me at least), so I was planning on just stalking various websites until it got cheap enough to buy.
Then, when I was shopping at Macy’s in NYC with my mom last month, she offered to buy it for me! I feel so lucky that she spoils me a bit when we see each other. It really stinks that we only get together a few times a year (my parents live in Florida for most of the year, and NY for a few months), but it also makes the time with them even more special!
