Tell Me About It, Stud!

I've always had a thing for studded accessories, and it's tres unfortunate (or fortunate, depending how you look at it) that i'm not shopping right now because if i were, i'd definitely be buying these...

These incredibly sexy yet tough studded heels from Aldo (shocking, i know). Because of that little platform, i'd also venture to say they're relatively comfortable. I think $125 is a bit much for Aldo (as i've heard their quality is not the best), but gawd, i can think of 10 outfits in my closet these shoes would complement.



The infamous vintage studded belt that SJP sported SEVERAL times in Sex and the City: The Movie. Supposedly the cast/crew knicknamed the belt "Roger" because it showed up so often. I've been trying to find something similar for months now, with very little success. I know Patricia Fields has a knock-off on her website, but i'd rather find one that has the same vibe but isn't so obviously identical. (And one that's more like $50, not $120.)


Last but not least, this INCREDIBLE Rebecca Minkoff "stud" morning after bag. I've lusted after the MAB for awhile now but just couldn't justify the price. The addition of the studs, however, has me over the moon and wondering if the bag could be a future reward for sticking to the Spending Challenge (although that sort of defeats the purpose, no?). It's perfect. Roomy enough, can be held as a handbag or thrown over your shoulder, neutral color, and just the right touch of rocker chic. I. Die. (But no.. i'm not pre-ordering. Le sigh.)

Btw, how scary is it that the first thought that popped into my head when i saw this bag was, "$685?? That's so CHEAP!" After seeing WAY too many $1200+ designer handbags, i've realized that i need some serious handbag detox. Once upon a time i thought anything over $30 was too much for bag! Now anything under 4 digits seems like a steal. It's a sad, sad world.
