I do an immense amount of pretend shopping for my non-eBay job, which frequently results in me buying things I never would have otherwise (most recently: Kain tops) and discovering odd little lines, or, actually, big lines that I’m clueless about for whatever reason. I first noticed Iwona Ludyga’s jewelry by way of the twig-inspired bracelet, it’s organic design and rather delicate wood nymph-ish feel appealing to me so much that I would consider forgoing my usual armful of wrist-gear to focus attention on it. Further exploration turned up a gorgeous chain-linked double ring (please ignore the model’s pretty scary talons), a horizontal horn necklace, and a couple well done scapular-inspired pieces (is it weird to anyone else that these are becoming trendy?). I just might try out the bracelet, but what I’m really irrationally lusting after is the Electric Feathers chain vest that Susie posted earlier this week…
When I was trying to jam my goods into this beautiful but microscopic bag, my boyfriend sassily noted that he “thought I hated small bags”. Jeez…well hate is a little intense, I just have a hard time with all that contorting and smushing. But I will always make the sacrifice for this one, it’s one of the very few cool things my mom has handed down to me. There’s nothing worse than listening to her ramble about all the amazing things she used to wear that she cruelly didn’t keep.

Seriously…a blazer minus the sleeves. I couldn’t not buy it. I ended up taking the scarf off because it’s freaking amazingly hot.
