touch of red

touch of red

Trying my hand at ladylike apparel again. It's the shoes, I swear.

touch of red

I saved this pin from a Godiva box I received for Valentine's Day. Proved to be quite a handy little accessory, actually...

touch of red

It's kind of sad that it's taken me this long to get a good shot of my new watch. B got it for me for my birthday and I've been wearing it non-stop ever since. Something about it makes me feel instantly more grown-up.
