  17. Kuwaiti hijabs x2 (black, white) (donated, not pictured) - (duds. Good idea in theory, but these were poorly constructed and ill-fitting. At least I was able to test these out for far less than other websites were selling them for. Donated.)


  1. I think you did really well. Every Rick Owens item I've bought has been an "instant hit". I've been fortunate, as everything (Rick Owens and otherwise) I bought last year was an instant hit. Of course, I bought hardly anything (apart from cosmetics) so that's not saying much!

    1. what I like about RO is how the pieces coordinate well with each other...of course RO's limited (BLACK!) color palette helps.

  2. Restraint yet more fabulous for it! Inspirational. Accessories are my downfall and it's only mid January - aarghh!

    1. mine too... but happy that I resisted temptation to acquire useless heels.


Thank you for stopping by!
