mexican goods

As promised, here is a post dedicated to the stuff i bought in Mexico. There's not much to buy that's not tacky, so I just opted for some turquoise silver jewelry; I've been very obsessed with turquoise lately, btw.

Loving the colors!!! I got 2 pairs of studs (I love studs, I will show my small collection soon in a post), 2 rings, and a wrap bracelet which is very Chan Luu-ish.

Here is a modeling pic of my large turquoise studs!

And my ring! Sorry the pic is a little blurry!

The last few days I've been doing some research of the Mulberry Alexa bag I planned to buy when I go to NYC in Dec. I've found out that the leather is not very nice and there's color transference on denim!!! Some people are saying that the leather feels cheap..etc..etc. So I'm not sure if I will still go through with this purchase. I love that bag, yes I do, but there are also other bags which I love. Last year when I went to NYC I contemplated between the Balenciaga Part time vs. Chloe Paraty. Part-time won, but I never forgotten the Paraty... perhaps I should get the Paraty as opposed to the Alexa? 

Oh and as far as my shopping ban goes, it's not going well at all. I guess I should've called it... "shopping restrictions" because I know I could never go on a full shopping ban. I have new purchases I want to show you guys in the next few days. Please stay tuned!

new items not purchased while on ban

I have a few items I purchased back in July that I never posted or have worn. I consider these items more dressy and I'm usually a casual kind of girl.

I love this t. babaton top, light and with a touch of girly ruffles. I'm very impressed by the new t. babaton collection, I feel like I should've bought more tops before they were sold out! The pants are from wilfred and I know this style of pants is controversial because not a lot of people can pull them off, I don't even know if I can! Harem pants look best with heels, and I for one love the look of heels but can never wear them!

Anyway the above picture was taken with me wearing the top! We were at Chop for my friend's going away party. She's moving to Hong Kong for a bit to be with her bf... if that's not love, I don't know what is!

ps. 10 days til Mexico!!!!!
