What I'm Coveting Today

Even though I'm going in to shopping "lock down mode" (more on this to come. I.E.- Can I succeed?), I'm posting this anyway. Hopefully my lock down will go well, and I'll be sporting one (if not both) of these by the Summer (and certainly on my honeymoon this Fall!).

First up, White Jack Roger sandals:
I really want white, even though this isn't very practical. What other neutral could I do that I could still wear with white pants?

I'd also love a pair of monogrammed Bonanno's:

What color combo? Again, I'd love a neutral, or possibly something with navy? I love the gold ones too, but that's not very practical. I'm not sure which monogram to use either? Mine now or married? And with what as my middle name? My real middle name or my current last name....oh well, at least I have time to decide, lock down is definitely going to last a few months.

Why am I locking down, you might be asking yourself? Well, its simple really, the wedding. Yes, I have an extremely healthy budget, but I feel the need to have a little nest egg saved just in case. In case of what? Oh, the unforeseen expenses. The "nickle & diming" that I'm certain is coming. Plus, we going on a two week honeymoon and I know myself, I'll be shopping up a storm. Especially in Naples...ahh 5th Ave., 3rd Street, Waterside Shops, and outlets galore! Not to mention, Disney World! I'll be doing some damage there too!

I was on ebay today and saw the white Jack Rogers size 8 for around $90. I don't have a pair and have no idea what they run, but this might be a good price since it is ebay! I was planning on researching them this weekend because I want a pair so bad. Blogging makes me want to shop more!

Hey, I stumbled across your blog by visiting "The Activist Next Door."

I can't believe your post. I just blogged about my first pair of Bonannos which I ordered today.

I talked to Vivian and she told me about a new color they are carrying called "gunmetal." She said it's her favorite metallic and sooo beautiful. She also told me you can wear them with just about anything. Jeans, white, navy, etc.

Gunmetal is similar to brushed nickel color. It's not shiny like the silver metallic.

I ordered the "Palm Beach Classic" in gunmetal with silver whipstitch per Vivian's recommendation.

I am so excited! I have to wait a month before they arrive.

I'll be posting pictures once they arrive! :)

P.S. Great blog! I'll be back!

Oh, my. I just noticed you are "princess freckles." We've been blogging together on the Prepublican.

So glad I visited your blog! :)

Thanks for your Wow post. I posted it on my blog as I have friends who read it that aren't part of the prep group.

I need some new sandals as well, but no new shoes until I get a j-o-b!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Cute! I want new sandals - more importantly, I want the weather that goes along with said sandals!

Julie said...

Love all of those sandals... I don't have a pair, but I after seeing them on all of the preppy blogs, they might be a spring "investment" (though I am also trying to save $). Random question - how do I get an invite to "The Prepublican?" Thanks :)

Hang in there Miss Princess, somehow you'll make it through the shopping moratorium!

Always Organizing said...

I with you on shopping lockdown for the wedding :) It will all be worth it in the end...

I love those shoes, and you are SO right. The nickle and diming comes and then if you don't have more saved you could be in a tough spot.

Lis said...

Loving the shoes!

And yes, the closer it gets to your wedding the more "nickle & dimed" you will get! I don't know how but things just pop up - and sure $30 here and $60 there is ok, but do it lots of times and it really adds up!

I'm very excited for you!!

oh my gosh! GOLD i'm not kidding is totally practical! They practically match everything and you can dress them up or down. Now, I don't know what you have in your closet, but my number one choice is "platinum" jack rogers, they are fabulous. talk about versatility!

The platinum Jack Rogers go with EVERYTHING. I have white and platinum and the platinum are far more my favorite....and they look better after a year of wear. The white has started to crack.

SCARY, great minds think alike! ha! ha! I have a pair of mongrammed Bonanno's and I went with navy blue with with trim. My initals in white of course! I am so BUMMED Hickey's is gone and so is Sherman Shoes [is the one in B'ham still there?] - where is one to buy Stephen Bonnano/Jack Rogers in GP? and B'ham for the matter? Guess Nordstrom will get a lot of business, otherwise the internet will! ha! ha!
