Marianne: All about the accessories.

It's fun to dress up and everything, but when it comes down to it, this is pretty much my ideal outfit. Comfortable with cute accessories and good boots. Bam. And oh yeah, the boots. These boots. Typically, I stalked them on eBay, sold a couple of things, and now they are mine. They are perfect--perfect cognac color, soft leather, the more beat up they get the better they look.
Perfectly complimenting the boots? This fantastic hand carved wooden bangle from Mango Tree Fitted Bangles. When I was approached about reviewing one of these candy colored bangles I initially thought I shouldn't bother. I have extremely skinny wrists and I have never found a wooden bangle that didn't fall right off. But the brilliant thing about these bangles is they come in different sizes. I ordered the size small and it FITS. It doesn't flop around, doesn't come close to falling off, and the color is gorgeous. They are really reasonably priced, too, and I want an armful. And I promise you, I'd love it even if it wasn't given to me to review, this is just a gorgeous, fun bracelet.

  1. Those boots are amazing. I still don't own a pair of boots because I haven't found THE pair yet. I'm so picky about what I put on my feet.

    I love those, though! Wish I'd seen them first on Ebay. ;)

  2. I LOVE THOSE BOOTS! That Cognac color *is* perfect.
