Fur and open-toed shoes?  Queen of Practicality, that's me.

I found this adorable purse at thrift store a while ago and it's been staring at me forlornly from it's lonely little spot on what has become "the purse shelves."  Have you found that after you wear something once, it kind of "breaks the seal" and all kinds of possibilities immediately open up?  That seems to happen to me all the time.  I'm not sure why it takes me so long to wear cute things like this neglected little purse.

Forever 21 tee
J Brand jeans

necklace from a boutique in Hoboken
Hermes bangles
antique rose gold amethyst ring


 PS Just a couple more hours to bid on the DVF top I'm selling on eBay if you're interested!

  3. Open-toed? The first thing I thought was
    aren't your feet cold? heheheh...it's not really a big deal to me because I went barefoot few days ago even it was chilly outside. I love your fur jacket, E! i hope i can find a fur jacket in a thrift shop soon.

  14. Amazing purse. It has a old lady feel to it that pairs perfectly with the fur, and then I just love how you've kicked it up with the open toes. And THAT looks like real fur, too. Gorgeous. The cream color is beyond classy, E!

  15. I'd totally wear your outfit! So cute. Open toe shoes and fur jacket...good combo girl :)

    Yes, once you give something that was stuck in the back of your closet a chance...you'll suddenly find ways to wear it! Love that.

  16. Being practical is overrated...I'd do the same damn thing.

    I always do that-buy something, never wear/use it and then discover it again and wear it everyday for like 2 mos. Thats kind of how I am with boys. ha

  17. Cozy and amazing outfit! I love that floral purse! I totally know what you mean about "breaking the deal" on wearing something! I recently did that with a pair of shoes...I would try them on with an outfit and then at the last minute change out of them before I left the apt. Then one day I wore them and I have worn them about 5 days a week since!!

  48. That purse is just fabulous! I could never do white fur, as I would have spilled on it or slipped in a mud puddle within five minutes of putting it on.

  54. I'm absolutely in love with your bag !

  55. this purse is sooo cute. I know what you mean with buying things and not wearing them for a long time. That happens to me a lot. I buy things which I find cute and stylish but when I get home I'm not so sure how to combine them and then one day I try and never want to take it off again! ( which lasts for one week or so!! )
    XOXO
    ps. must haven been freezing with your sandals! :)
