Adrien: Well, This Happened.

So, I'll just start by saying that April is not going to be a good month for the budget. In fact, I think I'm just going to pull a mulligan for spring and start up the budgeting again in June. In my defense, I have been going through all my stuff and took a bunch of clothes to the consignment store and I've been listing items (mine and Marianne's) in the blog shop daily, so keep checking back!

Now, on to the show. I am wearing an outfit. Also, this:

Too Hot To Handle Hobo

YEAH. A MBMJ Too Hot To Handle Hobo. I finally got a 30% off coupon for Piperlime and they'd put it on sale already and...yeah. It was nearly half off retail, so I am happy with the price and completely blotto insane over this bag. I LOVE IT. I think I love it more than the classic Hillier. Yes, I said that. The Too Hot is slightly bigger and wider and the lining is more subtle, which is a nice touch. Also, the magnet closure is leather-covered like the old Hilliers, a feature I'm really glad they brought back. Okay, now my outfit:

I'm wearing my new coated denim jacket from Banana Republic (apparently sold out but this one is rull cute) and an Old Navy dress Marianne gave me. It's from a few seasons back I think, but they have lots of fun print dresses right now! I need to go check them out.  This is what happens when I get busted by a pedestrian:


Embarassing. I'm wearing my super favorite red Chie Mihara mary janes, long since discontinued. Might I recommend this pair by Miz Mooz instead? This fancy pair is also very tempting. And again, I want to show you this:

The color is "cement" and it's the perfect neutral. Not quite grey, not quite taupe, not quite tan, but works in all those capacities. It's so good, you guys. It's not marked down anywhere right now but Saks has it and it's eligible for the F&F discount. (You're welcome!)


  1. I've been wanting a bag this shade but I'm worried about colour transfer - a neutral leather bag I had a while back, got stained when it rubbed against my dark jeans one day, stains never did come out! Give your new purchase a good old spray with weather proof, that's what I say. Oh and please stop posting amazing deals, your site is such click bait for me :-))

  2. I have that bag in black and it's the best. The BEST.
