Birthday Wishes

Fringed backpack
   My birthday is just around the corner and I've been stalking Nasty Gal again. Their items are fucking awesome. Well... most of them. I'm in love with this backpack. Like every other girl I know, I carry a lot of crap in my bag. I just took a glance into my purse and spotted a wad of napkins, a spare tampon, my phone charger and about 4 different lipsticks. A backpack would be much easier to carry all my shit around in. Hands free and much more comfy. :)

   The thing I love most about Nasty Gal is their shoes. Good Lord, the shoes!!! So many good ones but my favorites are from Campbell. They have an unsurpassed collection of sick Jeffrey Campbell shoes. 
   I think he's mostly known for his platform boots that come in a wide range of designs. They actually look pretty comfortable... just me? I've never tried them on but I want them! I'd have to find the perfect pair before shelling out $162. That's a bit much... I'm sure they last forever though. *sigh* Shoes are slowly becoming one of my greatest weaknesses. I'm more of a wedge kinda girl anyway. They feel sturdier than heels to me. And they're oh so cute!

Cassandra platform wedge
Burst platform wedge
   I'm beginning to really like big scary-ass shoes. They make me feel like a total bad ass and there's something very appealing about wearing shoes that look like they could eat a boy alive. Here's some more items on my wish list.

Free Love crochet top
Lemon twist blouse
   As I said in a previous post, I'm having a 70's themed birthday party. I am sooo excited! I love to boogie and I love big-ass hair so this is basically just an excuse to play disco music all night and dress like a Stella. I bought this insane wig and spent last Saturday morning shopping around vintage stores. I can't wait to show you guys my outfit. James isn't into the dress up theme so much but he's being a sweetie and playing along. We went to Buffalo Exchange yesterday and he actually tried on some polyester threads! I couldn't believe he actually tried them on, let alone buy a pair of old pants. While he was trying the clothes on I wandered over to the shoe section and low and behold they had THE PAIR of boots I've been looking at on the Urban Outfitters website for the past few months. "Please be size 9... please be size 9... YES!" They're a little snug, but for 1/3 of the original price I had to buy them. I am one happy girl!!! They're on my feet right now. :)

Since we're on the subject, I also found a cheaper version of a very wanted item I posted on my last Nasty Gal wish list. It was originally $88 and I got it for half the price on Hautelook. I just love little shopping victories don't you? :)
