Chloe invades Spring 2010: goodlooks

buttermyjammy has been on vacation for a bit...not because I haven't been stuffing my face with great food (I'm about 7 pounds heavier then I was 2 weeks ago thus making me 7 pounds more lovable), but mostly because I've been out of town on a few mini vacations.  Also,  I seem to have misplaced my camera cord resulting in a visual-less buttermyjammy. boo.  So in the meantime, let me indulge you in other forms of eyecandy :)

By no means do I consider myself a fashionista.  I save that title for those who wake up at 4AM to get to the Black Friday sale at Saks or those who always look impeccable head to toe, donning anything from louboutin's to forever 21... BUT, I do know how to appreciate good leather.  On my way back from Coronado this weekend, we made a pit stop at South Coast Plaza.  I shouldn't have done it, but I did.....I took a gander at Chloe's spring collection.  I was in love and broken hearted in the same moment.

How necessary are these two pieces?? The large Elsie Buffalo Bowling bag is really made out of butter....$1550 worth of butter.  It is so soft and the color makes you want to melt into a pool of caramel.  It's the perfect casual purse to pair with a crisp white t-shirt and fitted jeans and some fierce booties.  The Elsie Lurex shoulder bag is on the other side of the spectrum.  Structured and sleek, this is the purse to sling over that black mini when you're going out for the evening.  Only allowing room for a tube of rouge and perhaps some moola, this is a great alternative to the traditional clutch.  I love the twisted rope strap, adds a little bit of edge to such a classic.  This one runs for a cool $1250. 

I left SouthCoast empty handed and a little depressed about my finances.  But then I thought...."How much could I buy at Sur La Table for $1500??? Le Creuset's cast iron set so Betty could have some friends to play with, or perhaps the Wustoff classic knife set? Maybe a year's worth of cooking classes at Sur La Table!"

I guess the need to fill my belly and the bellys of my loved ones, far outweighs my need to wear $1500 worth of leather butter....oh well!
