Barneys Boston Virgin & Miscellany

I stepped into the new Barneys in the Copley Square Mall for the first time this past weekend. Everything still smelled so new! I was shopping with and for a friend. Even though it was tax-free weekend, there was this constant buzz in my ear that prevented me from splurging - and it kept on repeating LA. We found a lovely large studded Bulga bag in Chocolate for $299 from $485 & tax free! Even cheaper than Jessica's small yellow one I purchased last year. I convinced my friend to take the bag home with her. Perfect (for her) for the following reasons: 1) earthy color and easy to pair with outfits 2) large size makes a convenient tote for carrying things to/from work on the train 3) add's spunk & style to her corporate gear.

It might not be the latest thing anymore but it still seems to catch the attention of passerbys. FYI: Neimans is selling the small version for $296 online.

I can't lie - I was ooing and ahhing over a few things.
I had this belt in my hands for a few moments. By Eugenia Kim, this patent leather/elastic combo belt is the perfect style I've been searching for. It took strength to put it back. Ah, I will come across another.

And, anyone have feedback about Graham and Spencer, the maker of the Velvet line?

I first saw this Graham and Spencer dress in Intermix and again in Barneys, and yet again in People mag. I liked it the first, second, and third time I saw it but @ $231, maybe i'll wait for a good coupon code. I'll keep you all posted. =)


Btw, trend watch on these jumpers: [by IVY - available @ Intermix]



Lastly, Ashlee Simpson wearing a black pinafore jumper with Jessica, leaving the Ivy in LA. Jess isn't wearing a bra but she is wearing an adorable Rozae Nichols dress. I can't even see Ashlee, she's disappearing! I need to find out who makes her dress. Help, anyone?

UPDATE: Dress by Katy Rodriguez. Available at Resurrection Boutique. For more information, see Spotlight on Katy Rodriguez

I love the bulga...that chocolate color is a nice one too. Perfect for this season. Ashlee Simpson is disappearing...it's not too appealing either.

Great color! I bought one last year too but I never find the time to use it anymore. =(

I read that Ashlee's pinafore is vintage. Closest thing I found was a jumper at Anthropologie. The one on-line is hunter green, however they have black in the store.
