my lovely, little bracelet =)

Wednesday, May 18, 2011


I  recently ordered this bracelet from Chelsea at a lovely, little shop - and can I say that everything about receiving this package made me happy? I have a huge appreciation for pretty packaging and she has the coolest things going on here from the cardboard box (that i'll never throw away) to her cool business card to the sparkly stickers...geeez girl knows how to im-press! I also got these but I tore them out of their thing and put them on right away so they missed out on the photoshoot :)

And yes, that is moi, sipping on prosecco, admiring my new bracelet oh-so casually you'd think it was staged or something. Too bad that car in the background ruined the moment. And also the riot police showing up. And also the fact that I just realized I don't like my sunglasses anymore.

{Selma} Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Packaging is always the best, and my favorite of all. If it's not cute, I don't necessarily like what's coming out of it. LOL love the bracelet girl. Very nice. Also the Prosecco sounds like a good thing right now, and yes I know it's early!

Not staged at all. It totally looks like you're just having a casual glass of prosseco with your bracelet. So Natural.

It's adorable. I'm a sucker for great packaging too. But am too lazy to do it myself.

Did you realize you no longer like your sunnies after seeing this photo? Because I totally just had that moment. Strange. Haha

Love that elegant bracelet! :)

christa said...

That is so pretty! I never wear bracelets, probably because I sit on the computer all day and they would just get in my way. I'm always admiring them, though!

That is so beautiful. I can think of a ton of possibilities for it!

Diana said...

So pretty and so you! And don't be ridiculous about those sunglasses! Love them on you.

à la Modest said...

I just saw that protest post. That is funny. The first photo's poster looked pretty but then I realized it was against capitalism! Oh, Europeans. I love listening to this band called International Noise Conspiracy from Sweden, but their topics are all against capitalism. It's actually making me laugh.

Pretty bracelet! And oh yeah, I wouldn't have said anything about those girls too. I just have to pray and hope that they don't do that. I have people like that in church wearing see through shirts, so you can see their bras. It's so sad...

Kimia Kline said...

that sparkly sticker just did me in. plus that yellow paper. are you kidding me? amazing.

Gloria said...

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

so pretty! i can see why you're sipping and admiring, love your new bracelet total. but what the heck was going on? riot police??? oh no girl, danger danger Will Robinson.

and yes i do adore packaging too, i have an area in the closet where i store a bunch of it, Sean thinks it's a dust collector but i love saving bits and bobs like that.

i like those sunnies on you, so funny though. i sometimes take a pic of myself before going out. it gives a different perspective of an outfit. usually take one or more things off afterwards ; )

xo ♥
