First is a little item... I recently purchased a Kindle because I have long commutes to my internship (about 2 hours each way) and this is a way for me to get my reading in without having to stuff books in my purse! Of course, I needed a case to go with it.
After looking around and finding really cute cases that were unfortunately even pricier than the Kindle itself, I stumbled upon this cutie from... St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's Hope Gift Book. It was only $7.99 (plus shipping) and is made by Juicy Couture! I love the floral design, the soft fleece lining and the inner pocket, and the rose charm on the zipper pull. It's even coated in plastic for easy cleaning! Plus, I really couldn't beat the price and the fact that it contributes to a good cause. It's still available on the Hope Gift Book online shop if anyone wants to purchase it too!
And... after much debate and drama (shipping mishaps, etc.), I finally settled on my 20th birthday present! I knew that I wanted a nice quality, classic, black leather tote... but one that wasn't boring. I wanted to be able to use it for professional events, but also for going out with friends. At first, I fell in love with the Tory Burch Robinson Tote. But after I got it in the mail, I really hated how it looked on me. It was big, boxy, and all around awkward.
Then, I decided to finally try out the Michael Kors Hamilton Tote. I had been hesitant in the past because I saw the bag everywhere, but once I got this one in the mail, I knew it was the one. It's the perfect size without overwhelming my petite frame! Can't wait to use it.
Trouvé Quilted Leather Motorcycle Jacket from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale... I fell in love with this from the moment I saw it. When it came in the mail, I was devastated because I originally purchased size S, which was too big on me. I decided to return it in-store.... where they had the last size XS! It was meant to be. I can't wait until fall to wear this. The leather is so buttery soft.
