License to Eel

 Guys. Be honest. Do I look like an Easter themed business woman? I was super pumped about this outfit (see: happy little trees on skirt with bows and matching vintage eel skin clutch) then I walked proudly out of the room and Jonathan looks at me and enthusiastically says "Easter!" Yes, babe. These are Easter colors. All of them. Dammit! It momentarily made me doubt my ensemble, but then I did a skirt spin and all of my worries were forgotten! Skirt spins have that effect, have you noticed?

Okay, I know what you're thinking, "Hold UP sister....did you say EEL SKIN?" Yes, yes I did. I had no idea when I purchased it what it was. I could tell it was well made because of the quality of the stitching and lining. I figured the material was some sort of vinyl. It almost looks like a someone took a green magic marker to this thing. Upon further inspection I found the label said 'Hand Made In Korea Genuine Eel Skin'. Well, there you have it. I'm basically accessorizing with sushi.

  7. It WAS at the Wherehouse! Good eye! I know Casey just from shows and parties there and thought it'd be perfect for a small intimate wedding! Everyone thought I was crazy for having it there but with a little added decor I loved it. They have such a good vintage and unique vibe there.

  8. I think you look absolutely beautiful, and I would ignore the Easter comment of your man, I wouldn't have even thought of that. Pastels to me mean Spring! Love the clutch, it's so gorgeous and vibrant :)
