Purple

Monday, April 4, 2011


This sweater I purchased in the mountains of Peru (legit, actually in the mountains). My mom had heard of this Alpaca factory that churned out sweaters in all sizes and colors. Of course we had to visit. We took some rickety bus up a mountain just to get to it. I bought this grandpa sweater (and by I bought I mean mama bought, this was years ago I swear) as well as the one I posted in one of my first posts, here. I absolutely love the color of this sweater and the fact that it's huge on me is a big plus... it makes it quite comfortable. 

The shoes I received for my 21st birthday. Every year, for my birthday and Christmas, I make a detailed list for my mom of what I want. I had listed a pair of ballet flats, expecting some from Steve Madden. Instead, my parents took me to Ferragamo as a surprise. It was a dream. My mom's rationalization for this expense was that I'd have them forever. True dat mom, I like your thinking. 

Peruvian sweater, Kain t-shirt, Tolani scarf, J. Brand jeggings, Ferragamo shoes 


Damn I look sexy. My BF is so lucky to have me. 
In the next couple of days I have some projects I will be debuting on the site. Keep looking for some new and exciting things! I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday and that Tuesday is even better.
