J.W. Hulme Legacy Bag

It’s summer somewhere..

J.W. Hulme Legacy Bag

J.W. Hulme Legacy Bag $410

it’s hard to think that that’s even possible, but it’s true!  IT’S SUMMER IN ARGENTINA. I’m heading down there next month to visit my sister and her family – super excited about.. I just realized how soon it’s going to be here and have been starting to think about what to pack. One given is my new J.W. Hulme bag I love the classic look – just need to get it embossed before I head south – it’s a complimentary service  they provide and such a great, simple touch!  I bought it in Buckston, but it also comes in Burnt Latigo.

Living in..

Leather Shearling Clog Boots

5" Leather Shearling Clog Boots $360

my No. 6 shearling boots.  Everyone said I would. I know I’m late to it, but can’t not mention how happy I am with this purchase. I’ve been wearing them pretty much none stop since I bought them last month. They are comfy, warm and good in the snowy, slushy NY weather. Worth it!

Hippopotamus Bookends

Kind of obsessed with..

Hippo Bookends

Hippopotamus Bookend $58.00

WHITE! I’m not sure where my obsession with white stems from but it became really apparent while decorating my apartment last winter.  I was constantly on websites, blogs and through the wonders of the web was introduced to a pretty great store A+R. I bought 2 of these white hippos and use as bookends..highly recommend!

roller skate door stop

Rollerstop Bookend/Doorstop $95.00

I’ve been back and forth about the roller skate door stop they also sell. I really don’t have a use for it, but I do love it..

Imoni Leather Mittens

If I could..

Leather Mittens from Imoni

Imoni Leather Mitten w/ Fur Lining $255

buy one more thing today it would be these leather mittens from Imoni, a brand out of Sweden. I’ve kind of been obsessed with them since trying them on at no. 6 before the holidays. They are fur lined and longer than most. For a pair of mittens, they are pretty hot!

Diamonds & Studs

Pretty cool..

Aggressive Ring by Lusasul

Lusasul Aggressive Ring w/ Three Spikes $129

jewels from lusasul.  I came across this ring on StyledOn a minute ago – and fell in love with the uniqueness of it.  I like the construction and the spike/diamond combo. The elegance of the diamonds and the toughness of the spikes are a cool mix.  Luz del Carmen Zambrano, the creator of lusasul uses silver to make pieces that are super cool, great everyday items> Not to mention, totally on trend and great little statements. I’m in love with her collection, especially the Aggressive Ring. Perfect with jeans and a tee!

Pyramid Stud Cuff by Shayan Afshar

Shayan Afshar Pyramid Stud Cuff $375

The spike remind me of the pyramid stud cuff by Shayan Afshar. I saw at Curve early last summer and obsessed over it for about a month, finally went back to buy it only to find that it was sold out.  I ended up searching online, and after a lot of work and much deliberation of which metal to buy, bought it in gold. Loved it. Note: I’m using past tense there, it feel off my wrist last week and has not resurfaced.

El Yucateco Green Chile Habanero Sauce

I can’t live without..

El Yucateco Green Chile Habanero Sauce

El Yucateco Green Chile Habanero Sauce $3.49

HOT SAUCE – it just makes everything better! For those who know me (or have just had a meal with me), know that I am a big fan of spicy food. Bario Chino’s habenero margarita got me into margaritas, I use hot peppers whenever possible and am addicted to this delicious green sauce that a great restaurant in NY has on every table, but couldn’t find it at any markets – anywhere! So you can only imagine how happy I was to come across the mexgrocer.. I think the site is pretty great – all authentic Mexican products, but I’m most excited about el yucateco green chile habanero sauce! Ever since introduced to the stuff, I’ve been pretty much obsessed!
