vintage beauty and some pink :)

hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend w/ family and friends! i ended up getting a lil' too much sun...yay for a tan, but boo for a sun burn! i also managed to squeeze in some shopping during this wonderful 3 day weekend :) i ended up stopping by a vintage shop and found some beautiful pieces! i found the perfect time to go...there was literally no traffic and not too many folks shopping in the store (i.e. no crowds and no lines)! it was a fabulous experience and i will definitely be back for more...next time to buy and sell :)

this gorgeous vintage oscar de la renta silk scarf was only $22!!! i couldn't believe my eyes!! can't wait to wear this tied as a bow in my hair :) this has such a lovely floral print...i'm a sucker for anything pink and floral!
AND this fabulous magenta pink pashmina was only $10! so happy :) i also bought a cute summer dress w/ a floral print for only $9!

and lovin' my mom's vintage austrian crystal necklace! found this rummaging thru her things as a child :)

i also took a few snapshots of my betsey purchases...these babies arrived last week :) seriously hurry and buy them now on betseyjohnson.com...both these shoes are on sale! if i had only waited another week i could have bought BOTH on sale!

 i bought these for full price cuz they were SO cute! but you should definitely buy them for $30 bucks off on the betsey website now! these are so cute but they definitely are major heels...and these puppies will definitely be hurting my feet :( i'm setting aside these shoes for very special outfits...these are definitely not everyday shoes b/c of the pain factor...sadness cuz they're very cute! also it seems like betsey shoe sizes run slightly smaller however i think these run true to size..i got them in a 7 (normally wear a 6.5) and there's some space left in the back of the heel (looks weird)...gotta figure out how to fix that.

look how cute...there's even a gold heart on the bottom of the shoes :)

now these shoes i couldn't wait for! i was SO excited for them after having received my glitter pollys. just look at how sparkley they are (there's even glitter on the heels!!) and what girl can't use a pair of black heels :) i was slightly disappointed w/ these...they are also not that comfortable...i was really hoping they'd be as comfy as the glitter pollys but no the platform isn't as tall as the ones on the glitter pollys so you definitely feel the height of the heels. i'll also be setting these aside for very special occasions or for times i know i'll be able to sit down A LOT..haha. i bought these when they were on sale for about $30 off BUT now they're on sale for 50% off on the betsey site! seriously such a good deal for these shoes..you should go buy them now while they're half off!

just thought i'd throw this in as it is pink :) this was my first chanel bag purchase, which i bought earlier this yr :) i have a lil' obsession w/ pink chanel bags...sigh...i've been eying a pink patent leather wallet on a chain bag for awhile now...it's gorgeous and am seriously considering another pink chanel bag :)

in keeping w/ the pink theme...my handmade chiffon flower headband arrived last week! LOVE it!!! it is so pretty :) cannot wait to wear this out w/ a long flowy maxi dress! i purchased this pretty handmade item from the etsy shop bannerboutiqueonetsy! check 'em out, they have some gorgeous handmade headbands!! (excuse the messy hair in these photos :D )

so, with all this clothes and home/ bedding shopping i felt like i had been neglecting my first true love...makeup! so, i ended up purchasing some lipstick and blush (of course)!

lovin' my chanel rouge coco shine in aventure...it's rumored that princess kate wore it on her wedding day :) the only thing i don't like about it is the fragrance...why must lancome and chanel and ysl put fragrances in their lipsticks! i'm not that sensitive to smells but when it's right on my lips...it definitely is a nuisance. also, absolutely LOVING my new nars dolce vita blush! it looks like there's sparkles in the pan but the sparkles don't translate onto the cheeks...it just gives the prettiest golden pink, red, coral look...just what i've been looking for lately! recently i've been purchasing more and more matte blushes..i just love them! in my younger days i loved shimmery blushes but now i'm falling in love w/ matte blushes. i like the option of adding my own highlight if i want. a girls gotta have options ;) i love nars blushes...they have such great staying power AND can you say pigmented! and i got the smashbox perfectly polished lids as part of my 500 sephora points purchase...love freebies :)

and no post would be complete without some fresh flowers :) LOVE my blooming roses! they smell so delicious and are so beautiful. God creates the most beautiful things on this earth :)
