Work Hard, Play Hard
Last year, work was extremely challenging and stressful. To sum it up, there were long hours, lost weekends and my gray hairs multiplied. Why did I stick it out? Well, the semi-annual bonus payouts helped keep me motivated.
Instead of being a responsible grownup and putting my bonus into a savings account, I splurged. I treated myself to a few things.
* A beautiful Proenza Schouler PS1 handbag in red & black geometric print. The interior lining is amazeballs! Originally, I wanted to find the “perfect” black bag but nothing came close. The search continues…just kidding.
* My first (and probably last) Chanel leather good. Why is this my last Chanel item? Don’t get me wrong, Chanel is classic, stunning, timeless. However, I rarely see anything that matches my personality or sense of style until I came across this neon yellow patent leather wallet. That’s all me.
* Solestruck’s one and only storefront is in Portland. They curate a small assortment of shoes for their store so, I wasn’t expecting to find anything but what do you know…I fell in love (happens a lot). Been seeing more and more shoes with cutouts and I was skeptical of the trend until I tried on a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s Fontane sandals. The black leather “butches” them up and they are super comfortable; no need to break them in. Perfect for transitioning out of winter boots and into summer sandals.
