who won the buffalo tooth necklace..!?






 I love sea horses. I love rings. Sea horse ring. Heck yes.

You know what I realized today? I will never be able to just buy things that I "absolutely love". I do not over spend, my budget is pretty set out and followed...but I do need to someday figure out how to not buy things I like and only purchase things I love. Mostly talking about clothing, here. It's just too easy to walk in somewhere looking for one thing and leaving with a lot of other things and without that one thing. I don't feel alone, I think every female interested in fashion probably has this mindset. Maybe? Last night I stayed in Omaha after a block party and my friends dog chewed up my leather purse and leather necklace string. I have never been around one of "those" dogs. But, she was too adorable and loving otherwise, so I convinced myself that I didn't like that purse anyway and the necklace needed a new chain. This is how much I love dogs. They can rip apart my belongings and then shake my hand and lick my arm and I am instantly okay with what they just did. This does not work with humans, however, so don't get any ideas. 

Alas! The winner of the water buffalo necklace by Miss M....goes to...drumroll here...
After counting twice, it looks as though #11 is Kathleen! Way to go girl, all it took was a second of your time and a little typing, and now you get a sweet necklace that I want! My readers can still use my 15% discount code on both her vintage and jewelry shop, up until tomorrow (Monday). Code is STRAWBERRYFF15.

  2. Love those earrings and that ring! And I am exactly the same way about shopping. I totally understand the idea of saving up, shopping less frequently, and only spending money only really great quality stuff you LOVE. But honestly, I just enjoy shopping too much, and am such an impulse shopper that the only way for me to keep it in check is just not go into stores! haha. But it's ok, I'm not out of control, it's just hard not to buy once I'm already in the store. Especially if it's vintage and I can tell myself I'll never find something like it again! Haha.

  3. congrats to Kathleen! Bummer to me! haha But oh well. You look really nice in these photos, you always have amazing accessories. I would not have as much kindness towards dogs if they chewed up my stuff, but I have never had good experiences with dogs so I guess I am biased.. Have a good week!!

  44. I'm the same way too. I like shopping and I can't buy only one thing I love. It's impossible. Practically unimaginabled! When I enter a shop, I feel like I have to buy something.

  45. Aaghh I have that soft spot for dogs too. They're just too cute and loyal to become angry at.

    I love those earrings on you by the way, so rad.
