Various items I found myself liking last week


Last week was a tough one, guys. Sammy the dog got very sick and had to be hospitalized (he’s home now, and doing very well) and I was a complete wreck.  But I still found time to locate plenty to want, starting with this excellent corduroy jacket with a removable faux fur collar. I’ve got a bit of a thing for corduroy at the moment.

This weekender is the perfect size for a couple of days worth of stuff, and I really like the not-too-loud camo print.

Here’s a smaller tote by the same company that I think is pretty cool too.

And while we’re on the topic of totes: Everlane just introduced the Form Bag, which is big enough to fit a 13-inch laptop. It comes in black and light brown too, but I’m really into this green.

Click through and zoom in on the awesome print on this shirt: stars and flowers!

Just a good silk V-neck blouse at a decent price (for silk).

I’m still looking for a good backpack for when I’m riding on my bike, and while I’ll probably end up going for something simple, cheap, and nylon, I am mightily drawn to this.

I love the idea of trouser jeans, and really dig the dark wash on these.


Taking requests: hair accessories

I can’t find the email in which a reader asked for this particular post, but it was brief, and basically said please show us some nice hair accessories, so here that is for you, anonymous reader and whoever else is interested. I’m starting with this splurgy-but-gorgeous snake hair pin, because it is just so much excellence.

These beaded ponytail holders bring a little color to the party.

These barrettes are by jewelry designer Gabriela Artigas, and they’re not especially cheap, but they are so graceful and pretty. Here’s something similar and not quite as pricey.

This is a cheaper knockoff of this ponytail holder, and I wish I’d known about it when I sprang for the latter.

This bendable leather cuff is slightly rock chick in a way that I can really get behind.

Scrunchies are having such a moment that I could have done a post on them alone, only I don’t entirely know how I feel about their return, so I’ll just show you this cute floral number and consider that particular base covered.

This bun cover reminds me of something the summer camp counselor who ran the crafts shed would wear.

These bobby pins with little pearl-like beads would look so nice holding hair up in a twist.
