Well, since I have started school for the year I really have not had time to work on any projects. I've been trying to decide what I should do with this blog in the mean time, and I think I will use it to write about both fashion and home decorating things that I come across.
One "problem" I have right now is my school bag. I currently have a black computer bag (from JCPenny) that I like, but it is not holding up well. So, the search has begun for a new bag. These are my requirements:
-large enough for a large binder, possibly a couple textbooks, wallet, phone, water bottle, lunch...appropriate to put a laptop in from time to time (not every day)
-tote style. I have never had good luck with messenger bags, and I don't want a backpack.
-neutral color. I'm thinking black or brown, but I could probably go for other colors.
I'll be posting pictures of any bags I find that I like, and I would appreciate any suggestions people have for me.
Finally, to close, Things I'm Digging:
-Tarina Tarantino style jewelry: If I had an extra 750 big ones hanging around, this would be hanging around my neck (pic from tarinatarantino.com)
But since I don't, it isn't. I have found some similarly inspired pieces at other places, like Claires and Forever 21.
-mirrored furniture. Another thing for an extra $750-800 laying around. Sigh.
The good news about mirrored furniture is that it IS available at reasonable(ish) prices. Urban Outfitters recently had a mirrored bedside table, and Target has a few mirrored pieces right now. I have seen one in particular (http://www.target.com/Glass-Accent-Table-25-25/dp/B0023UWO1S/ref=br_1_24?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&searchView=grid5&searchNodeID=2057388011&node=2057388011&searchRank=salesrank&searchPage=1&searchSize=30&id=Glass%20Accent%20Table%2025%2025) at the local target several times and it just wants to come home with me!! They also have a mirrored jewelry box and vanity tray.
