this woe-is-me story is pertinent because: i have relied on a bed buddy (who knew they still made those?), a hot water bottle and an ice pack for most of that time.
here's where it actually gets pertinent: i think i would have felt a thousands times better with cute little guy's warm comfort. lavender and wheat... puts me to sleep just thinking about it. check more of these 'hot dogs' (ha you KNOW i love that) out at the recently launched, glasgow-based shop showpony. and enter code helloshowpony at checkout for 15 percent off. thank you, showpony!
*hence the missed post wednesday and two very rambly posts today.
i'm no expert, but if you feel like you're stuck with your $300 pair of glasses and want a change, i'd recommend it. i've only bought this one other pair, but i had good luck. wished i had gotten the anti-reflective coating and they slip a little on my nose (i think any optometrist will fix that for you), but the quality is fine. i had them checked out at my last eye appointment, and the rx was spot on. joe recently got a pair, too. he wasn't jazzed about the quality but he looks really good in them, so i'm not complaining.
yes, all the sites are jank and the follow-up e-mails are hardly in english, but glasses are glasses. and it's nice to have a couple options from day to day.
still got questions? check these links out.
today, i really feel like i need these. do you think they're too... rugged? because i really love them.
also, these and these (gladiator + hurache? hurrah).
but my heart still aches for this sweet blue pair.
also, a monday morning question. you've noticed the blog's been a little schizo lately. blog post titles here today, gone tomorrow, and back again. fewer 'go buy this now' posts and more 'isn't this photo lovely' posts. did you enjoy it more when the blog was more consumer-driven? i get kind of depressed blogging about store-bought things and have tried to venture into more inspiring things. is that ok with you? or should i go back to my greedy ways? tell me, readers, what do you think?

i already mentioned the brilliance behind the bags of bees'netta (vintage designs and nomadic behavior!), but today i stumbled across the day labourer. and i positively adore it. and i might be saving up to make it my european carryall. what do you think? what color would i get?

kelly at design crush recently started a 3 to see series, which has introduced some new-to-me faves every friday.
she was kind enough to include greedy girl in the honors two weeks ago, and i was beyond excited. i like being honored!
i recommend you check it out! and, thanks again kelly.
on a similar note, katie did posted a tutorial for the unbelievable flower collars she did for her daughters. as usual, my mind is blown. (i tell her a lot i am obsessed with her lovely family and her super talents and their sweet brooklyn life, and it is completely true. i hope i am not creepy. hm.)
i would die if these belonged to me. i love that she's not afraid to wear them.
(this blog will make you hate your job, your shoes and the people who have the job you should have and the shoes you should own. thanks to k at blog goggles, who with one blog post has me re-evaluating my entire life.)

really, really like. was really getting tired of hand lettering. until now.
rifle design via party perfect.
[edited to add: ok, i thought i'd clarify... i don't hate hand lettering. i really love it, and i'm excited to see a resurgence. i'm just getting tired of all the ultra-cutesie hipster stuff. i just wanted to throw that in there so no one started to think i was a satanist or something.]
