The Prima Ballerina Cardi by Manoush is a Masterful Work of Art, drafted in 100% Merino Wool with a Tea Stained, Pleated Silk Skirt.
Way back in November 2008, this lovely, Soft Cardi arrived looking like it had been through the wringer. I picked it up as a Pop Back after the price dropped from $268 to $70. Someone must have carelessly grabbed both sides and pulled the snaps open. That's the only explanation for every snap left dangling from threads. It took hours to sew the snaps back in place.

Owl's Nest Necklace - Anthro $48 - Feb 2010
Pot of Gold Heels by Seychelles. And a well known Anthro Statement piece, The Owl's Nest Necklace. My Necklace may have been the last one in existence. It arrived in several pieces, but repairable with glue and a few jump rings.
I was feeling punchy. A second statement was in order. The clear stone in the center of Anthro's Toasted Meringue Cuff by Lee Angel, is very similar to the Purple and Blue Flower brooch in the Owl's Nest.
I was smitten by me first glimpse of the Pot O' Gold Heels on Modcloth. They Sold Out before I had a chance to gasp with sheer delight!
Just for you, I performed some fancy foot work, in case you want a Pot O' Gold for yourself.

The truth is, I'm much happier that Moths Any-Other-Rose-Cardi, a fluke addition from at least 1.5 years ago, actually shipped.

I would rather keep the Cardi and loose the Necklace. Of course having them both would have been stellar. You win some! You loose some!
