It turns out that one of the things I miss the most about living in a colder climate is that incredible feeling of being in bed under a heavy duvet while it’s cold outside. Small things that I took for granted when I lived in London seem so satisfying- condensation on the glass, opening the hotel window to the sounds of the city waking up down below. I guess travelling can make you appreciate the known quantities as well as offering new experiences.
I found this handbag in the BVI in the most unlikely store possible – an American/Caribbean yachties pub and restaurant with a souvenir shop attached. I was browsing through nautical keyrings and lanyards when I came across this vintage-looking beauty in a dusty glass cabinet that looked like it hadn’t been opened in 20 years. I tried to ask about the designer but it I couldn’t get any info. It looks like amber but I’m guessing it’s plastic. I’m so glad I brought it with me to NY as I love it with this skirt I got from Urban Outfitters. I bought the boots from the Aldo store on 5th. I love the sexy gap between thigh highs and a short skirt and these are unusually comfy even after a day of walking all over Manhattan.
