Super-size this picture on my Flickr stream!

I’ve got so much goodness on today, its hard to know where to start! Some of it is new, some not-so-new… but all of it is terrific!

I was thrilled to have some time recently to wander around the Accessories Fair. The fair runs thru June 26th, 3pm slt… so you still have plenty of time to get out there. And, honestly — it was really pretty easy to get around, and a very charming build. I enjoyed myself a great deal. I snapped up these amazing Gos sunglasses as soon as I arrived. Because I’m a colorful kinda girl, I got the fully loaded pair — but you can also get a more basic sunglass — both of them 50% off during the fair — and you really can’t beat that! The various options for personalizing your look are just mindboggling — you’ve got your entire summer wardrobe in one pair of glasses. I also picked up this terrific necklace from new-to-me ruchica — I couldn’t resist the bird motif, and I loved the clasp at the front of the necklace — what a terrific little detail. I’m going to look forward to checking out more of this designer’s work. One of the really cool things about going to fairs is that you often get an opportunity to see things you liked when you first saw them, but just never picked up. That was the case with the wonderful Trouble charm bracelets from Aluinn. They aren’t new releases, but just the perfect fun bracelets to add to my collection.

My new shirt is from London & Bird — something I actually first saw on Flickr. I’m not sure they have an inworld shop yet, but you can get this on the marketplace. I’m wearing the jacket layer in this picture — its the only layer that has a hem at the bottom — and I think its just the perfect length. If you’re using a browser that lets you wear multiple items on the same layer, you shouldn’t run into any problems, but wanted you to be aware in case you are trying to layer this with a jacket. For 30L each — these shirts are a great wardrobe staple.

And these pants!!! If you haven’t checked out some of the terrific stuff at insanya, you are so missing out! These fantastic capris are superbly textured, and so wearable. You actually get two versions of the pants — with a shadow that corresponds with the cargo pocket (shown here), and one without. I LOVE that attention to detail. I’m wearing the capris here with my Gos Urban boots — and actually love the look with the checkered cuff. But they would actually look terrific with some great sneakers too. The pants come in a variety of patterns — all of them great.
