Late Night Bloomer

January 10, 2009

Believe it or not, I have not always had this shopping addiction. In fact, when it came to fashion (and maybe a few other things…) I was a bit of a late bloomer. I was one of those wonderfully naieve and somewhat awkward adolescents whose idea of “fashion” was my gray Goodwill mailman pants with navy clogs and an Old Navy blue striped collared shirt with the cuff sleeves cut off. Oh, and I carried a wallet in my back pocket. No joke: that was my favoriet outfit when I was 17. That, or jeans with a navy tee with (my favorite shirt) a shiny brown button-down (70’s style) collared shirt over it. 

I’ll give you a minute to digest those images and let the nausea pass.

Then, somewhere between the ages og 18 and 24, my eyes were opened to the amazing world of makeup, matching, feminine sweaters, shoes, bags, bangles, appropriate use of layering, lace, camis, cardigans, and the general concept of color. An addiction was born.

Night Blooming Bag


Speaking of blooming: check out this bag! Anthropologie’s Night Blooming Shoulder Bag, $98. I love the color and the contrast!


Can a girl ever have enough bags? Clearly, the answer is no.
