December 26, 2008


**I am bursting with Christmas cheer as you can tell from this photograph!**
This is what I wore to our Christmas gatherings yesterday.

I am really excited about the new Prada bag my mom got me for my birthday!


To be honest, at first I didn't know if I liked it.
But I thought about it some more and decided it was actually really, really cool. It's leather patches made it look like a dinosaur and the double zipper even sort of resemble the teeth of a T. Rex. It's actually a really wierd bag-definitely not the typical purse you'd expect from Prada.
The prehistoric Prada bag??
It's just the sort of bag for a non-bag girl like me. Thanks, Mom. 

I am also wearing a shearling and suede jacket by Richard Chai. It is a very inky black that is a little bit green. You can actually do a lot of different things with the collar and various zips and snaps but I like it best this way. Definitely one of the best birthday buys ever! 

(* Some very exciting things just arrived in the mail from eBay this weekend and I can't wait to blog them-hopefully I can do all that this weekend!*)

Hope you had wonderful Christmases yesterday :)

I'm not usually a Prada bag fan either but that one is so killer. It will definitely compliment all your outfits perfectly. Love the double zips. Also, reading about how much your Mom likes dinosaurs makes the comparison you made of the bag seem kind of perfect coming from her.

hi jane-
so i noticed the christian louboutin bloody mary python shoe on your wall (not sure if they're yours or your moms) and i was wondering if you have any tips on wearing them so they don't kill your feet! i love them and am trying to decide whether to get them or not because they are very uncomfortable. please let me know if you have any tips for wearing this particular shoe or for high heels in general to make them more comfortable. i tend to collect pretty heels but not wear them because i'm a wimp to the pain, esp. on the balls of my feet :( thanks!

LOVE that prada bag!! Definitely not a normal prada bag, and that jacket is so great!

Amazing jacket! It looks so soft and cozy. Like a..teddybear or something. Haha
And the bag is really cool. As you sad, very not Prada. Simple but yet different with all the small details like the pattern and zippers. I like like like a lot.

Photo of Golubka

Mmm...beautiful jacket! The bag is definitely not the first thing one would expect from Prada, which is great.

I LOVE the boots you are wearing. And that bag is def a goodie (but I agree with how it grows on you - but then again the best things usually do)!
Hope you had a lovely Christmas/Birthday.

That bag is so cool ! A special design. It doesn't look like a Prada bag anyway. Nice present :)
