holding on (a sequel).

A few months ago I shared my struggle with letting go. When cute things come into your shop every day, the temptation to buy everything for yourself can be more than a little overwhelming. But every once in a while, something comes in that you just have to hold on to. Meet my new-to-me genuine leather Chicos boots. My friend Meghan’s mom brought them in the bottom of a bag filled with adorable dresses and pants, and when I spotted their intricate stitching I was intrigued… Then I pulled them out and saw they were boots — leather boots, in my size — and I knew I had to make them mine.

Don’t worry, I won’t keep all the good stuff! I updated the online shop this weekend with 30 new pieces — jackets, handbags, dresses, and sweaters — and there are more coming this throughout the next several days.

This week’s Manic[ure] Monday post will be up later this afternoon!

    You look adorable! I love your bracelets. Are you wearing lipstick or is that the natural color of your lips? You look fantastic.

    Love this shirt on you! The bag is gorgeous as well. I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to pass on black leather boots in my size either. They look awesome.
