My brother was nice enough to let me borrow his 50mm lens, which I’ve been playing with briefly for the past few days. Actually, I’m using his entire (old) camera, which I now apparently call “mine” because its been in my posession >6 months. Anyway, I really like the lens and definitely think its worth the money (its “cheap” at $100). I still was too cold to take more than a few pics outside, so I’ll have to work on the whole “over-exposed” thing when the weather warms up a little more. Hopefully that will be soon.

I still dont know what to do about the whole “skinny jean” thing. I want to wear a long top so my bum is covered, but I also dont want to look all funky up top, aka: really really long torso. I think more layering may be in order.
Its been a bit crazy recently. I haven’t had time to do much of anything, and I am seriously behind on my posting!! But, a couple weeks ago I started the search for my new work bag, which I’m happy to say has ended. I was debating between the Celine Luggage Mini and Prada Saffiano Tote (this post). Long story short, I ended up with the Celine Mini Luggage in Smooth Camel. Its an amazing bag, I’m in love it. I loved it so much that I bought the Navy the next day, and justified it by the fact that the price was to increase by $400 the next day. Not good logic, I know. But I can’t explain how much I love these two bags with their well made, understated beauty. I hope there will be a third in the future, but the bank account is saying otherwise.

I’m contemplating selling my Chanel Jumbo, which I rarely use, to get another Celine. It sounds crazy to all of the Chanel lovers, but I always think that keeping something you don’t use is pointless (I just sold 3 of my Balenciagas that weren’t getting any love). Would you sell a Chanel to fund a Celine?
Some mornings I struggle to get up. Seeing 3:30 on the clock is a little depressing. Those are the days where I don’t care how I look, but I know I will by 10am. This is a nice little comfy outfit for those types of days. I feel just as comfortable as if I was wearing pjs.
