an incredibly delayed purple week finale

I don't know if any of you have noticed, but I totally never got around to posting the last purple outfit for Purple Week. WELL, HERE IT IS!

dress, anthropologie
cardigan, f21
sandals, target
belt, mom's
bangle, kate spade


The dress is all sorts of purple, so it definitely qualifies for Purple Week.

And now, your outfits!

Sherry from Girl's Day Out makes me want to emulate this outfit really badly. The punchy orange and rich purple are so perfect together, and her entire outfit is from Target! Don't you just love it when you can get on-trend and expensive-looking clothing for a great price? Insert wistful sigh here.

Rachel from promises like pie crust wore this sassy number! The shirt is so adorable, but the real star of this are those amazing heels! Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme!

And since I've been away for so long (let's just attribute it to health issues and move on -- I don't want to revisit those germy, germy memories), I've got a few more photos for you all to make up for it.

I bought the Draper Media Console from Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago and it arrived last week! It's supposed to be used as a nifty stand for your record player and records, but since I already have one of those and what I really need is a better place to store all of my cheap, cheap wine (keeping it classy here, folks), I turned it into a bar instead!



The top section on the left opens up as well, which makes it easier to access my various glasses. Obviously, I need some more, but that'll do for now.

And did you notice my awesome new bag? Of course you didn't. So here a closer look:




And here's where I need your help, Minkettes. I got this Rebecca Minkoff bag from Nordstrom last weekend, but I can't find this style online anywhere. I'd love to know what it's called, so if you have any idea, let me know!

See you all tomorrow with a regular update.

  1. That media center makes a perfect bar! I love the way tat the top opens and has a section for glasses and I love the way you set it up with the bottles arranged on top, so cute, as is your outfit!

  3. That bag is so awesome!

    I quickly looked around online for this bag and came up with the Flame Bag, incidentally, there's also a mini Flame Bag.

  6. Glad you are out of hiding!!!

    I absolutely love your new wine bar!! My bar consists of a tiny area on my counter top. Yours is a million times classier.

    I definitely noticed the bag and didn't even realized it was a RM until I saw the nameplate. That is a fabulous new addition. I'm kind of jealous. ;)

  8. That Forever 21 cardigan has been sitting in my hamper since December of 2009! Can you believe that? I love it and always tell myself I'm going to get it out when I see you wear it, but I never do b/c I despise hand washing clothes!

  16. Love that bag! It's a Flame Satchel and It seems to be sold out online. I personally do not like the flame bags but that's a flame I can get with. Great find!
