I can't believe Anthro still HAS NOT sent this fabulous little Cardi on it's way to the Sale Section. But then, it is suitable as a year round cotton Cardi. As you can see, I got tired of cheering this one to sale.

You can buy it here.
Note: Cotton is the fabric of my life. I personally detest most wool. But then I do live in California where wool isn't necessary, even for skiing.
I love Chie Mihara! So when I discovered that she was part of a consortium of European Shoe Designers, naturally I wanted a pair from each of them.
Check out the European Consortium here.
My first pick was Coclico. And when Anthro put these on sale, I jumped for them. The reviews were full 5 star. The footbed is Berkie like soft suede. Very comfortable. But Chie still wins hands down for me. Maybe because I know everything about her and how she makes her marvelous shoes.

|Magic Carousel Necklace - Etsy Shop Japonicas - $28 - May 2009|
You can see other similar at Japonicas here.
Japonicas, in a very small way, is a copy cat of a US Jewelry Co dejarnette. The jewelry is incredibly imaginative, and the pricing is fair. Unlike anything from France and Italy.
