headbands and shoes for summer

"my headbands are the source of my power."
- Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl

so, i may or may not have gone on a little headband spree last night on eBay.  oops.  i got these sweet little things in just about every color they made (these are examples of the different styles i went crazy on).  perfect to sweeten up a little dress, or to add some class to an updo...i think summer 2010 will be the summer of the headband! (at least for me).
 yes, there are more.  yes, i am crazy.  CRAZY FOR HEADBANDS! bahahah :)
speaking of eBay, i realized i may have a problem...these two dresses look very similar, don't they?

i think you can have too many little black dresses, after all.  oops.
and a little eBay find i didn't even know i needed? ADORABLE 'safety pin' earrings!  mine are cubic zirconia, but the biggest pic i could find to share had un-adorned safety pins...look! look!

so cute, right?  

and some other fun eBay things i'm looking forward to opening when i get home...
abercrombie sleeveless sweater dress:
a perfect midweight dress for those in between San Diego spring or fall days!

Lilly Pulitzer Shift:
what's that? i need something adorable to throw on on my way to Costco/grocery store/etc.?  oh how simple and easy and glorious with a fab spray tan! 

and currently bidding on these adorable Steve Maddens...i think they'd look perfect with this Abercrombie dress (that sits in its little baggie on my bed [and by bed i mean rack in my stateroom on the ship, inside the box that it shipped in...i seriously bury my feet under the box when i sleep.  storage is a commodity around here.] anxiously waiting to be worn)


so YAY for fewer then three weeks until i'm home
YAY for eBay
YAY for shopping

hrm.  oh! YAY for extra 25% off kate spade sale!

Like you, I too, have a headband problem and now I want every single one that you just posted. When do you come back to the States?

I love headbands...but I think I may have an exceptionally large head (for that big brain, right) so headbands tend to give me headaches or something...but they are super cute. Almost as cute as those earrings. To.Die.For

Stephanie Hartman said...

I love headbands too but most of the time I don't look like Blair when I wear one. I look like a buzzard with big ears.

I have a problem with ebay these days... I keep bidding on things that I only sort of want and WIN.

Yes, I was born and raised Mormon. I still consider myself Mormon and will go back to church someday....
I also went to BYU.
How did you figure that out? (I mean, I have posted it on my blog before, but why this post?)
