Lady in Red + Born Pretty + Birthday!
Hello there Dandies! It is my birthday today! In honor of that I get to have a pelvic ultrasound and appointment with my doctor because they hate me and my day of birth, obviously. Wish me luck...Thankfully a sister date with my older sisters this weekend should remedy all of that :)
And apparently I'm still riding the red in February train and didn't realize it. I actually didn't mean to, but you see there was a bit of a mix up. These pants. I bought them at Vivien of Holloway and ordered what I thought was a nice light burgundy color. When I got them in the mail they turned out to be the brightest shade of clown candy apple red! I'm just not sure I'm much of a 'red pants' girl but eh, it was my own mistake. Not to mention I ordered them a size too big for some reason and so it doesn't really give the effect I wanted. Nevertheless I'm determined to make them work because I've wanted swing trousers forEVER and they are incredibly comfortable.
Sidenote, Sean said I looked like a mother Babushka. I could start cooking him cold beet soup and show him a Babushka. Sheesh, men ;)
Alright, onto the piece of the day! This fancy little watch is from Born Pretty. It is a website where you can buy everything from clothing, to accessories, to sports stuff, to stationary, the list goes on! The prices are so phenomenal it's difficult to believe that you could receive a good product out of it. However I was impressed with the watch that I received! It has a classic design, is a nice size, and I can see it being very versatile in my wardrobe. Not to mention the watch came in a pretty little box with a pillow and an extra battery! I was very impressed since a dead battery is usually the biggest reason people stop wearing their watches. It's such a hassle for some reason to go put a new battery in. This way I'll be able to use the watch for twice as long. And guess what? You can have a look at the Born Pretty Store for yourself and pick up some nifty baubles for 10% off using my code: KATIEAC10. Can it get better than that?
I finally found some vintage bangles at a flea market! I was super excited, since I don't really wear jewelry that much outside of earrings. I got a few in some various colors so I can't wait to start integrating them into my 1940's/1950's looks. Although I wasn't prepared for how annoying the bracelets sound whenever you move your arm around. They're like clanging cymbals! Pretty cymbals...but still :)
Haaave a fabulous day all!
