I'm in a bit of a financial jam so I put five of my coats up on ebay. The starting bid for each of them is $15, but if you're definitely interested in one of them, I can take down the listing and sell it to you for $20, so you don't have to bid -- provided the item doesn't have any bids yet. Shipping is $4.95 for each coat, or $8 total if you combine two or more coats. These are all size L, but they run on the small side.

floral footwear

I think these shoes are absolutely to die for! Has anyone ever bought shoes from F21 before? A lot of people make fun of or deride the store for having poor quality clothing (while I'll admit it's not Gucci, the stuff looks pretty nice for what you pay and usually lasts at least five years in my closet -- good enough for me on my measly income) and while I personally think their clothes hold up fine, I've always been tentative to buy their shoes. I guess I'm just worried that they'll either be painful to walk in, or the heels will snap out from under me.

I'm not in a position to be buying shoes right now, but just wondering if anyone has bought them there, and how they hold up? :)

connector rings

I have a strange obsession with connector, or two-finger rings. Except for claddagh rings (more about those on Saint Patricks Day :) I seldom ever wear single-finger rings. There's just something so striking about the connectors, and it is so unique that it alone can complete an outfit, without any help from necklaces or bracelets.

I still don't own the *perfect* two-finger ring, but these come very close to my ideal -- you can click on the images to visit the product pages.

I love this one, but I'm not sure if I want to be saying "I love you" to everyone who looks at my hand..


the gummy bear chandelier

Unfortunately, these aren't real gummy bears - though I guess if they were the chandelier would be eaten in an evening. But this is truly impressive nonetheless. Made from 5,000 acrylic gummy bears strung by hand, each light fixture takes 2 months to finish.
