"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." -Coco Chanel

shop the shoes: herehereherehere and here
shop the sunnies: here, here, here, here, here, and here 
You would think I would have satiated my thirst for new shoes by now, but alas, that is never the case. My recent acquirements have been much more frugal than my past ones, however, costing me around $50 each. I found the Jeffrey Campbell Skulltini loafers on eBay, my new favorite haunt, and purchased the Kate Spade Keds on sale!

vintage find: vintage louis vuitton monogram monceau

 I'm an avid vintage shopper, especially when it comes to bags. Many of my bags are vintage, including my beloved Chanel flap. I find that vintage bags often have a better quality to them - as well as an undeniable charm. I've also recently begun a foray into eBay with mild success. One of the fruits of my endless eBay searching labor (read: scrolling on my laptop) was this gorgeous vintage Louis Vuitton Monceau

♡ new valentino & some saks off fifth goodies ♡

As you can see, I'm desperately trying to bring more color into my summer wardrobe.
Just kidding. Clearly. Though I love color, lately I've been wanting everything in black. 

The first thing I purchased was the Valentino rockstud gladiator sandals in black with gold studs. I got them from Farfetch  on sale for 30 percent off

♡ celine tricolor nano ♡

I'm so excited to share my Celine tricolor nano with you! It's probably the most exciting addition to my bag collection. I have loved Celine luggage totes ever since they first came out, and I'm happy to finally own one! 

louis vuitton curieuse wallet in aurore empreinte ☮

I've been itching for a new wallet for a while. The wallet I've been using is the Louis Vuitton Eugenie wallet in black epi leather that I thrifted for $55, and though I like it, I have learned that it's not my ideal wallet. Previously, I thought I needed lots of room for cards. But I don't actually even have a credit card. I have one debit card and a lot of frozen yogurt rewards cards. 
I figured I didn't need quite so much card space, but rather a convenient wallet for throwing in cash and just having a few easy-to-access cards. The wallet I was originally eying was the zippy, but I'm not keen on zippers (too much of a hassle) and I wanted something a little less simple. The Curieuse wallet was perfect for me. It has eight credit card slots and comes with a removable zippered pouch (which is so useful when carrying a smaller bag). The color I purchased it in is aurore, in the empreinte leather.

♡ new shoes of 2014: Charlotte Olympia, Valentino, Chloe, Frye, Lanvin, and Burberry ♡

Browsing Instagram has taught me one thing - people are willing to spend big bucks on high heels. The amount of red bottoms I can count (wistfully, I might add) dispersed throughout my feed is almost unseemly. For a long time, I wondered if people somehow managed to walk around in heels all day. But no - after further discussion, I have garnered that people find designer heels to be a worthier investment than designer flats, and would much rather purchase the former. Alas, through much painful trial and error, I have concluded that heels are not for me. Don't get me wrong - I love a manageable heel. My Rag & Bone Durham boots and Acne Pistols are perfectly comfortable. I just don't see the point of buying lots of pairs of heels when I know they won't get much wear (from me, that is). A good flat shoe, however, will serve me for many years! I purchased quite a few flats so far this year, so here they are.
