On Mortals and Purses

One good thing about working at Macy’s is shopping at Macy’s, oh wait I think I got that wrong 😉

Either way – my search for a perfect bag is over, I finally decided on a hobo by Ralph Lauren, and the discount was too good to pass on the deal. Plus this bag is black with silver accents, and that’s exactly what I was looking for!

Oh Macy’s, you just make me shop all the more!

The original price on this baby is $386, and let me tell you, I got it for less than 40% of the original price (that includes me using the Macy’s Card and my employee discount)

What do you think? I am pretty sure I am done with purses now, so if anyone is interested in buying any of my vintage/thrifted bags, let me know, I have a whole lot!

Cheers!

Easter the Hutsons’ way!

Yay for Easter and holidays and a day off 🙂 Anyways I am going to start today’s post with my outfit of the day! The skirt was an amazing $12 find from Old Navy! The sheer blouse is something I got at Ragstock last week and the under shirt is something I’ve had for years! The shoes are pretty old too, I’ve had them since Russia!

I also made a traditional Russian Easter cake called “Kulich” – just some raisins and icing, and it turned out really good! I honestly didn’t expect that at all 🙂 Hehe

Once we got to my in-laws house, Sandra surprised me with spicy Korean carrots (those are super popular in Russia!)

While waiting for dinner, we entertained ourselves by adding on to the diorama!

Can you guess what we’ve added? Heh!

And after dinner we were all enjoying the view and taking pictures. Sam and I don’t have a lot of pictures together, so we finally took one!

And I took one with my mother-in-law as well 🙂 How gorgeous are we?

And finally, I just wanted to share some of the beautiful scenery with you, add on bird sounds and a little breeze and you get our Easter Day!

Happy Easter everyone!

1 Day 2 Outfits and Boo

Yesterday was my day off! And days off are amazing, I am sure you all know that! Plus I was on a mission – to buy Boo the cute little dog for Ingrid – the girl I baby sit! If you don’t know who Boo is – here is a picture!

I was able to order both the plush toy and the book about Boo from our Uptown Urban Outfitters, and have them ship it to my house for free 🙂 Oh the beauty of ordering from the store instead of online (that would’ve cost me $10!)

Anyways, once Boo makes it to my house, I’ll make sure to take some pictures of him for you before I pass him on to the cutest little girl in the area!

Now, I don’t want to be vain, or God forbid pull a Samantha Brick on you, but I went through 2 outfits yesterday. Here is the first one:

I am rocking my thrifted COACH cross body and BCBG Max Azria Jacket, my dress came from a sale at Macy’s, and the boots were a gift from my hubby, before we were even married. And then you know, the watch is the usual – Marc Jacobs, yes, I am obsessed 😉

After I placed my order at UO, I went to check out the Ragstock, and ran into my friend Tom, whom I haven’t seen for about 5 years! Here is some interesting info for you – there are 2 Ragstocks in uptown, both are in the same building, but I was so excited about everything I bought there, I had to immediately go home and change!

Hence, Outfit of the day #2:

As you can tell I am recovering pretty well after my surgery 🙂 Thank you all for warm wishes and loving messages! I appreciate all of them so so much!

Hope you had a good day yesterday!

Purse Dilemma

Do you watch YouTube? Anyways I have become the biggest YouTube junkie for over a year now, and I love Tiffany from MakeupByTiffany – she recently posted a video and shared her latest purchases – one of which was a Louis Vuitton bag. And what a bag – I mean it was gorgeous. So gorgeous, that here are some pictures for you:

And I do agree with Tiffany that purchasing a bag like this is an investment and an investment of a life time. So I’ve discovered myself drooling over LV bags for the past 2 nights.

So I wanted to ask your opinion – do you think it’s worth investing into an expensive purse like an LV or a Chanel, or just spend money on a cheaper one. Anyways, please take time to leave a vote 🙂

Doodles my lovelies,

NYX Haute Jersey Leopard Couture Review

Being a huge fan of all the drama going on Jerseylicious for the 4th (I think season in a row) I couldn’t NOT notice that episode, where Olivia gets all dressed up like crazy, oh wait she is crazy and does some super hero make up tutorial for NYX website.

Here are the videos for those of you, who missed this amazing Lordess of the Wing/Olivinator show

So when the NYX Haute Jersey palette popped up on HauteLook for only $15 I knew I couldn’t miss out on that! Plus you all know that HL is my newest latest obsession 😉

I honestly love the way the palette is made – all the little details, the writings above the mirrors that you are the DIVA and all that, now I am not exactly happy with some of the eye shadows. There are too many grays/silvers, but some of the lighter colors and that pink and blue are pretty amazing, the blushes and the bronzers are great – my favorite is that mixed one, with the blush and the bronzer all together (which reminds me – I have a Physicians Formula one, I should probably take that out of the drawer! ). The lip glosses are so adorable, but so small – they are great though, and do last quiet a while – up to 3 hours, which for a lip gloss is a pretty decent time, I think. I usually carry one in my pocket at work (sorry, Clinique).

So that’s the story of me and the Haute Jersey palette from NYX,

Have you tried NYX products? Which ones would you recommend?

Phones and their Outfits

Dior Phone Touch

The other day my husband told me about “lady” phones that he read an article on! I have to admit – you gotta love ars technica for their ability to reach out to everyone – both men and women!

Versace Unique Pop Pink

The whole idea of having a “ladyphone” seems rather stupid to me, because nowadays you can make any phone look like a “lady” by simply purchasing an appropriate accessory.

Gucci V3i Gold

 LG KE850 Prada

Why get something that not only looks stupid, but has horrible horrible features (You are horrible, horrible girls! – get the reference?), when you can get a nice designer cover for your iPhone or Blackberry (sorry, ever since I moved to the US the other brands ceased to exist)

Like glitter and sparkle? Knock yourself out with Swarovski cases:

Available from TheRedBirdDesignon Etsy

Funny story – when I was buying my iPhone the girl who was selling it to me suggested this case –

I love Michael Kors, but this particular design is too much – I don’t want to fiddle around, trying to get to my phone, even if it is in a secure little snake skin pouch like this vs. being thrown into the almost bottomless pit, which is my Zabars bag. Needless to say the girl didn’t own the iPhone or the case for that matter 🙂 And didn’t know who Micheal Kors was either.

Now Ted Baker has something a little more handy in all senses of this word:

But to be honest with you, I don’t even have a case for my phone, and neither am I planning on getting one! Maybe someday, when it becomes more of an accessory, than a necessity!

Watch Watching

So I want to get a new watch, I can’t wait to get it, there are other priorities though, so it’s probably going to be a few more weeks till I actually go and splurge. But this is what I’ve been look at so far:

As you can probably tell I am debating between Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs. Which one do you like the best?

Also I am wearing my husband’s watch for the whole day today, it’s his way of training me into wearing a large chunky watch 🙂

Making fun of the 90’s, because 90’s were FUN

Presented below is a visual list of items that were popular in the 90’s, needless to say – I am glad they stayed in the 90’s! And if you grew up in Eastern Europe, you have to recognize some of these!

The hideous hair ties

I don’t even have the courage to call it a scrunchie, this is a hideous cut out of a clown’s wig, at least that’s what it seems like to me today, but back in the day these were extremely popular. Perfect for Gay Pride, don’t you think?

Titanic Leo was everywhere, and so was Kate

 on T-shirts and Buttons

 Leggings were also popular

 Plus there were fuzzy sweaters and plastic headbands

 There was a ton of other stuff, and no I am not nostalgic, I just like making fun of the 90s, because 90s were FUN!
