Lovely Essentials: Basic Black

{Nine West peep toes}
not only are these the most comfortable pair of shoes I own
but they were a steal at the Nine West outlet in Hawaii

{Liquid eyeliner}
raccoon-eye-free thank you very much!

{Canon Rebel xti with Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS lens}
makes me look almost professional--
now I just have to learn how to use it in more than one setting

{Marc Jacobs Patchwork Stam}
a 20 pound disguise for hand lotion, makeup, a water bottle, and anything else you might need once in a blue moon-- but the day you need it and have it will make the shoulder and neck pain alllllllll worth it!

{Lululemon Groove Pants}
comfort, fit, and flexibility of these pants make working out endurable

{my Ray-bans}
living in southern california requires a tolerance for extreme heat,
lots of sunscreen, and multiple pairs of sunglasses with polarized lenses


  1. love the black shoes.
    Visit my blog to win a fun contest I am having right now

  2. aren't you glad you listened to us? (or was it the tan/croc ones that you were wavering on...)

  3. i love me some basic black!

  4. i can't believe the stam is that heavy!!! it's really nice though. =)

    the nine west peep toes are so cute!

  5. i'm not sure if i knew i wanted the black ones... i think i just wanted them ALL! i haven't worn the tan ones nearly as much. Do you wear them often M?

    i know black can be boring and predictable, but it's so reliable!!!

    haha it's not actually 20lbs, but it's pretty heavy. all MJ bags are. MbyMJ bags are usually a little lighter.

  6. we have almost identical MJ stam bag! mine's not patchwork tho.. and it's patent leather.. but it's black w/ ghw.. it's freakin' insanely heavy! my arm wants to break off everytime i use it. and then when i wear it on my shoulder.. the knobs on the clasp knock into my rib cage.. i end up with a bruise there whenever i wear it :(
