'This Thing of [Cuteness]'



Since I bought my vintage Razza Elephant necklace (first worn here), I've been sort of obsessed with his pieces.  This giraffe necklace has been a bit harder to get my hands on and it is a bit  more expensive, but I finally scored it on eBay and I REALLY love it!  Not sure which I love more, the elephant or the giraffe.  Which one do you guys like the best?

It's just been waaaaaaaaaay too cold in NY/NJ to take pictures outside (sorrow). So for now, I'll be snapping pics wherever I can indoors. BTW, don't you just love it when people stare at you while you're posing for pics?

Oh and as an aside, I'm sort of cheating on my new year's resolution.  I'm spending.  But I'm sure you all weren't holding me to that promise (sheepishly smiling).  So I'm sort of revising it and putting myself on a sort of spending diet instead of starving cold turkey.  There's just too many cute things coming out for spring that are selling out fast....so what's a girl to do?  (Besides, it's an investment in my blog, right?)

What I'm Wearing:
Leather shorts:  Victoria's Secret
Waffle Knit Cashmere Sweater:  JCrew
Boots:  Faryl Robin
Bird Skull Ring:  Urban Outfitters
Talon Ring: eBay
'Seven Day' Diamond Ring and Diamond Earrings:  NYC Jeweler
Square Ring:  Bryant Park Shops
Vintage Razza Giraffe Necklace:  eBay
Pin It

  3. I love this giraffe necklace! and although I like the elephant one too, I prefer the new one. Congratulations on the great buy!
    And you hit the nail right on the head, I 'LOVE' it when people stare at me when I pose for pictures... they always do that. Why is this? I am not even remotely interested if someone is posing for pictures... unless they're pretty... So maybe that's the case! ha! compliments to you and me ;)
    And spending... 'everyone does it, it's just that no one talks about it' ;)

  29. I love your sweater/leather shorts combo ;) So cute, and that necklace is amazing! Lipstick is gorgeous as well. I tried the whole not spending thing and I lost my mind and wound up going to totally wreckless shopping spree...*sigh* one day I will learn to control these shopping habits of mine!

  37. I like the elephant one slightly more which is weird because if someone asked which animal I'd like to wear around my neck (in jewellery form of course) it would be a giraffe. Gorgeous outfit - simple, chic and I love the colours. Talking of colours that lipstick is beautiful, wish I could pull off that kinda shade :)

    P.S. I'm the complete opposite! I shuffle around and half hide my face when people are watching me have my picture taken... always feel a little silly for some reason so cant help but admire your confidence! ♥
