you're so vain i bet you think this post is about you

today i decided to sport a rather subdued outfit in favor of showcasing my amazing vintage purse. they just don't make 'em like this anymore:
it's got a built in vanity mirror to check your lipstick in discreetly! (i'll even admit that i've used it at the dinner table more than once.) if you enlarge the last pic you can see how it hinges up and out of the middle of three compartments - cool! 
....oh, and i guess you can also see up my nose - uncool!
the only 2 problems (if you wanna call them that; i suppose "challenges" is a better term) are that i have grown quite accustomed to big olsen-sized bags and downsizing to this sweet little thing requires a real re-tooling of what one refers to as "necessities"... and one of the links on the chain has a prong that sticks out and pokes holes in the shoulder of my shirt - boo.
i don't mind the downsizing - it seems to be a theme with me lately though:
cutting of the hair, cleaning out closets, trying (desperately) to move into a smaller abode...
bigger may sometimes feel easier but i'm really beginning to think that it definitely isn't better.

on another note, i had a very nice weekend despite the suffocating heat. how was yours?

thanks to "lou" for taking the humid photo shoot - champagne sundays are the best and so are YOU!

I was going to ask which high profile photog took those pics...thanks for the shout out (and the awesome afternoon)!

So glad you're blogging now. It's not fair for us to keep your fashion prowess all to ourselves.

Maybe this will inspire me to kick the ol'wedding blog back into gear!
