{ what goes round }

last winter, i bought myself a cool pair of juicy couture sunnies, during an in-store event they threw for erin fetherston. they were the last pair in stock, and i was so happy to have snagged them. the next day, however, i wore them to a girlfriend’s house. she fell hard for them, and they looked so cute on her that i had to let her keep them. sure, i adored them as well, but you can’t hold on to things too tightly; sometimes they’re just meant for someone else.

anyway, fast forward to tuesday night, when i attended yet another lovely juicy event, this time at the comapny’s new york showroom. as i was leaving, my generous hosts urged me to pick out a pair of sunnies to take home with me, their treat. much to my delight, they had reissued the style i fell for so many months ago! i accepted them with gratitude and glee, happy to be unexpectedly reunited at last!!

    One person gives freely, yet gains even more. Proverbs 11:24

    This is a prime example how giving can be a blessing within itself.

    Oh yeah and love the sunnies

    I'm curious about your thoughts regarding this Iris Apfel/HSN vs. Hanna Bernhard scandal. I know you're an ardent admirer of hers and it's disappointing to hear about this copycatting.

    That was so nice of you to give your friend the sunnies, and then you got a pair for free! Karma's not a bitch sometimes.

    i think it's the sweetest thing you gave it to your friend! i'm a similar way, i always tell my friends that whatever is mine is theirs. strangely we only get to keep what we give away in life. and love that you were gifted those same sunnies! :) what goes around comes around indeed <3

    How sweet and selfless of you, Kelly! It's good to be reminded that at the end of the day, there are more important things in life than material objects (no matter how much we love them).

    This is such a great outfit, one of your best perhaps. That necklance is an hierloom.

    @Ebbie please don't equate getting free swag with the bible. This is fashion not confessional.
