I went out of town last weekend with my boyfriend to go see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but we had some time to kill before the movie started so we went to the mall to look around. I went in Ross's, I love to go there because they have great designer bags, shoes and clothes at reasonable prices. As usual for me I went straight for the handbags and was really not finding anything that really stood out to me until I got to the last aisle and spotted this amazing Steve Madden bag with roses on it! I was totally just drooling over it but couldn't afford it at the time so I made a mental note to go back on payday, and I did. I went back to Ross's yesterday and grabbed it as soon as I walked in the door. I was so worried that they may have been sold out but they had been moved to a front end cap just for me :) Haha, well, not really, but I'd like to think that.
I just love the design on this bag. It looks like a piece of art that is still a work in progress, it's just a perfect bag for this time of year. It's very well made and a hefty bag that holds a ton of stuff. The inner pockets are very well made as well. You know how most handbags have that little pocket on the inside that are meant to hold your cell phone, but your cell always ends up falling out of it and lands itself at the very bottom of your bag? Well, mine fits perfectly in the cell phone pocket and doesn't fall out at all! Very impressive!

I also stopped by TJ Maxx, as I also love their handbags and shoes. I wasn't even planning on getting anything, just wanted to browse but we all know how that goes... So, I saw these most perfect purple strappy N.Y.L.A. wedges and knew I had to make them mine. I really do love these but I wore them for about 10 minutes today and had to take them off. The straps are made of cloth which are super comfortable but the sole of the shoe just made my feet cry out in pain. I guess I'm going to have to break these suckers in. Anyone have any tips on how to break in wedges like these? I have other wedges but none have ever made my feet hurt as bad as these do. Oh well, enjoy the pics! I have a few new mani posts coming your way soon, btw!
