Bracelets I Cannot Afford

Mrs. Blandings, age 4

We were at the pool this week and there was a little girl who looked a lot like this. Her haircut was nearly identical. There was a large buffet line and her mother let her fix her plate herself. When she came back to the table her entire plate was filled. I elbowed Mr. Blandings. One half contained a single layer of black olives; the other half had three large wedges of watermelon. Sometimes, we just want what we want.

So, I'll share the latest installment in Bracelets I Cannot Afford. For a good little while I've wanted a skinny bangle with a heavy charm to wear on my left hand with my gold link bracelet and my watch. At first I wanted the charm to be a pea pod and then I had a hankering for having one made with the monogram I showed last week. But I've grown attached to my newest nickname. I've been going through a pile of Southern Accents and was reminded of this Slane & Slane charm. It may be discontinued, but a few retail locations still have it. I was hunting for all yellow gold, but the onyx popped up and it is pretty appealing, too.

That's the meaty, heavy side. The sugary watery goodness is this silk Piping Shirt from Olatz. I fear I would want to wear it every day.
