if money was no object…

it’s been a long time. a REALLY long time. a GINORMOUSLY long time since i’ve made an ‘if money was no object…’ post…!

truth be told, i’ve been *trying* not to look at clothes and such too-too much for months…being pregnant and all, it’s sort of like, hrm, can’t wear that, so i don’t even want to look at it right now, if you know what i’m sayin’. 🙂

and also…i have so many other things to be thinking about, doing, and yes, spending money on (hello, impending BABY!)…

and i am trying to be careful and considerate about what i DO buy (as evidenced by so much of what i write about and have been writing about for some time, about making smart choices, about ethics, about being green and creative…and all that jazz)…

but… STILL, i have been sort of quietly obsessing over a few things…okay? i am human, after all. at least, i think so!

so, *sigh* here goes… 🙂

there’s no way i’d ever be able to afford these paloma picasso stackable gold and semi-precious rings, from tiffany’s, but…a girl can dream.

ms. picasso is calling them ‘sugar stacks’…how apt! they are so delicious…they totally remind me of candy. i almost want to eat them!

being a long-time jeans fiend, i’m all about this pair of higher-waisted dark skinnies from that most classic of jean purveyors, levi’s (a long time fave of mine, btw).

so simple and perfect: a normal-ish waistline (at least compared to the past’s low-lows), no stupid whiskering, straight, and narrow. just the way i like it.

if i wasn’t very, very pregnant (and about to be even more round than i currently am!), i’d snap those up so fast it’s silly. i’d be wearing them non-stop, oh yes.

well-designed orange shoes are SO hard to find! yes, i did find a superb pair of orange snakeskin wedges a while back at a local shoe store (paolo, which is located on hayes street, and also over on fillmore, both here in san francisco), and i love them like i love no other pair of shoes in my collection.

but –STOP THE PRESSES!!– i do believe i’ve tracked down another superb pair that i feel suit me down to the ground…and i am of course coveting them like mad: these schindler sandals by rachel comey, to be found over at creatures of comfort.

the ankle strap is sturdy and wide, the sole is comfortably flat, the peep-toe keeps things summery, and the criss-cross over the toes has just a teensy bit of texture in the way of the lines, keeping things subtle yet interesting.
