Who are you calling a Naughty Monkey?!

15 Jun

It really does take all sorts, doesn’t it? I say this after a brief moment of reflection on several of the people I’ve been blessed to know and enjoy. Ranging from nuns to convicts, and most every sort in between (believe you me, the stories I can tell…). ūüôā

A little while ago, a friend of mine was getting married, and another of our friends needed to go shopping for the occasion. I was more than happy to volunteer as her shopping wing-woman! I had never been, er, shopping with my friend Kelly, and thus was a smidge surprised when she suggested that we go to Nordstrom. I mean, don’t get me wrong, she was classy and all that, its just not where most of my friends start their shopping. Lo and behold, my friend Kelly has a personal shopper at Nordstrom who has been a part of her wardrobing for almost 10 years! Can you believe it? Well, I couldn’t. I mean, I did, but… The personal shopper apparently felt the need to entertain me, too, and how could I object?! I didn’t… at all!

These lovely ladies were 1 of my souvenirs from that trip to “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” (I know, you don’t have to be rich to have a personal shopper, but it wouldn’t have occurred to me for a looonnngg time!)

These lovely ladies are by Naughty Monkey, and have paired nicely with khaki, black, and white. And, I’d like to think that they are on-trend with the plaid phase that is going around (its only a small stretch!).


I love that these shoes are both sophisticated and unexpected!




Summer Dreams

30 May

Admittedly, I am a bit late to the Polyvore scene, but I am having a great time playing around with it. On a flight of fancy, I found these quite lovely summer shoes – the things my dreams are made of. Simple, fun, feminine, and not altogether reasonable (for this girl’s budget, anyway)!
