'It [Is] My Turquoise...I Would Not [Give It Up] For a Wilderness of Monkeys'


Yet another rainy day in New York threatening to ruin a planned blog shoot so I improvised.  While begrudgingly eating a Big Mac (simply because there is absolutely NO good food in the Times Square area), I decided there was as good a place as any to take some photos.  After all, the Times Square McYDees is an old converted theatre and a bit of fun because sometimes they play old school music videos and it's fun to watch and to sing along.

I don't like to play favorites with my things but this is by far one of my favorite Coach bags. Love the color, the craftsmanship and the fact that it has LOADS of room to store my junk :) 
What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Anthropologie
Belt: Moschino
Bag: Coach
Necklaces: JCrew, Forever 21
Rings: Made Her Think, Lucky Brand
