i'm not typically a studded-bag kind of girl... but did you see the bottom of this beauty? and the quilted detail? now, $900... where can i find you?
the one below is a fanny pack of sorts. and i am ok with that.
the last one is pretty, too, yes?

i know my love for peggy wolf is nothing new (i could obsess over her alllmost as much as sophie blackall).
BUT i got really excited when i saw these new-to-me prints.
AND THEN i got even more excited when i saw some of them were buy one (8x12), get one free.
yeah. i am serious.

i've had this shop sitting in my inbox for weeks and weeks, just waiting for me to share it with you. i've been so behind on e-mail (and a thousand other things), but i've finally gotten around to getting through it.
i had gotten in the habit (a rut, actually) of wearing studs all the time. turns out, that gets boring. so i've been upping my girly ante lately with some dangly things.
leslie yang, the designer of the pretty (and bright) pieces above, uses mostly lasercut merino felt (i die every time for gray felt). you like them, don't you?
big belated thanks to jena for letting me know about leslie's work.
i can't wait to snatch up a pair.
[ack! edited to add... take 25 percent off the entire store with code MOM25. thank you, leslie! ... and, girls, don't be greedy. treat your mother while you're at it.]

i'm excited to announce a kind of different giveaway... it's strictly for okcitians. now if you're not in the area, don't feel left out. i'll have something for you soon!
normally, i'd feel a little hesitant about doing a locals-only contest. but i have LIVED BY my okcity card for a couple of years now. seriously. it probably pays for itself a month into having it. i eat a lot.
but it's not just eating... there's shopping (excited to see collected thread this year), sports, galleries, museums and more.
and, like i said... i'm big on the food: 2-for-1 entrees at mamasita's translates into free margaritas, by my way of thinking; 15 percent off entrees at mcnellie's means more beer; 10 percent off at the wedge means why not get a peroni? all my favorites are included on the card, including big truck tacos, sushi neko, red prime, cheevers and iguana.
and the best part (altruistically speaking) is that proceeds from the sale of the cards go toward allied arts agencies.
SO, i'd like to share the fun with you, courtesy of allied arts. the rules are below.
1. you've got to be in the area.
2. you've got to tell me your favorite place to eat in oklahoma city. (and tell me what you recommend there.)
3. you've got to leave a comment by friday, april 30, with your e-mail address.
4. lastly, there's got to be at least 25 people in the contest, so tell your friends!
i'll pick a winner then.
