to clear the air, this was an outfit i wore last weekend, lest you think i wear these jeans every day (which i do, like last night for dinner as a matter of fact). i bought the jordaches on ebay. the seller stated that they would fit a modern size me, so i eagerly bid on them and won by a landslide. after ripping them out of the packaging as soon as they came in the mail, i was at first sorely disappointed. the seller lied to me, she LIED i tell you. they are indeed no where near the size she quoted in the description (no measurements given, mind). i put them on, and was very sad when i realized that they were very large. sulking a bit, i put them on a hanger in the closet and contemplated selling them. then a few days later, i needed something to wear to a housewarming party and all my other jeans were in the wash. and oh my, the heavens opened up and i discovered the jordaches hidden beauty. they are now one of my very favorite buys on ebay EVER!! it's amazing what a simple woven belt will do.
now about the bag. there's another story for you. settle in, kids, for some story time. i saw this bag on little ocean annie's blog in an etsy preview post. i immediately fell in love with it and waited with bated breath for when it was available. the day finally came. i saw that she tweeted it so i clicked the link to her shop. here's my mistake: I PUT IT IN MY FAVORITES! why didn't i just add it to my cart??????? within mere seconds, the bag of my dreams was gone! some hussy swooped in and nabbed it out from under me. it was almost devastating. i mentioned as much to annie on twitter. and she then alerted me to purple deer's etsy preview! the world seemed bright again! annie then sent me the link and i check it out. like a jerk, i said something about it being a bit more than what annie had it listed at. but, i couldn't let it go. i even looked for one on ebay (and just so you know, there were a couple and they were much higher). so i put it in my cart and paid my money. then, an angel from purple deer vintage gave me free shipping :) and the bag is MINE! moral of the story.....when it comes to etsy, if you love it BUY IT, and make sure you shop at purple deer. great stuff in that shop!!
