In and Out, end of August


IN

- late summer/fall TV shows!
Currently obsessed with Big Brother - the US version since the "celebrity" UK one gives me a migraine. I mean, Paddy the gypsy is on it for crying out loud and I'm pretty sure he's more relevant than Tara Reid. Entourage is also great, Dexter and Gossip Girl start soon-ish and fall always makes me want to re-watch old episodes of Sex and The City *sigh* life is good :)

- cardigans. Since I lost my old Zara favourite, this fall a new grey cardigan is on the horizon.

- my birthday is on wednesday... will be spent at work but a lovely dinner with friends is planned for the next day

- studded jewelry, bracelets in particular. I stumbled upon this photo in Tumblr the other day and I had heart palpitations:


Naturally I haven't got a clue where any of these are from but I WANT! That skeleton tail one is pretty amazing as well. Also, if you've seen Jay-Z and Kanye West's Otis music video, one of the girls in the back of their Maybach has the most gorgeous gold studded bracelet as well (yes this is what I observe in rap music videos...)

Even this week's Net-A-Porter lady is rocking some studded bangles:


- Since my next weekend off from work won't be until Canadian Thankgiving (early October), I am planning to go see my friend in Arizona and soak in some sunshine in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area for a few days. Trip planning makes me happy.

OUT

- my Chapters order hasn't shipped out yet. I feel like this should be a "first world problems" type of tweet but there's nothing worse than placing an order for some items - in my case books - you're excited about and it takes longer than usual to receive them

- my incredibly shitty (for a lack of better terms) jewelry storage. I don't even know if you can call it storage, it's basically a mass of boxes tossed around in a drawer. I need a re-vamp! How do you organize your jewelry?

  1. I got a huge jewelry wooden box from bombay. They have great sales, and lots of different styles to pick from. It keeps me very organized.

  2. oh now you've set my heart palpitating with those photos too! I'm such a bracelet junkie lol
    and I totally understand the whole Chapters shipping thing. I hate it when books take too long and then I lose my initial excitement for them :( I loveee books so I would love to hear about these books once you get them :)
    ps. Happy Birthday! have an amazing day :)

  4. I totally agree----waiting for parcels is pure torture!!!! I'm always afraid my parcel might be delivered to the wrong house!!!! What books did you order? I have a ton of books in my TBR pile----still I'd order more and more :))))

  5. Love the photo with all the bracelets, but I get annoyed by wearing more than a couple at once. I did a post about my jewelery storage a while ago here - http://styleandthecityuk.blogspot.com/2010/02/jewellery-storage.html - I also have a little dish in my hallway where I store some of the things I wear most often including my watch so they're easy to find when I'm in a rush!

  12. Hi Sandra! I'm obsessed with bracelets and that bracelet pic is from a recent Refinery29 article on the stacking bracelet trend. You can probably find it on their website, it had so many great pics and listed most every bracelet.

  13. Blech! I can't imagine voluntarily coming to Arizona. It's still soooo hot here, and we have like, three more months before it cools off. You will get lots of sunshine, though. :)

    I hang my jewelry on those skinny curtain rods you're meant to put lightweight curtains on. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=789091811622&set=a.773560212072.2462742.10103346&type=1&theater

  19. What's your Tumblr? or would you prefer us not to follow you there , if not that's okay not offended. I think it's hilarious that you noticed the bracelet out of the entire music video, I was concentrating on their outfits.
