Inedible Favorites – Part 1

by Erin

Sorry nothing new to post about food today! Been kinda hectic. However I’ve enjoyed reading other bloggers’ posts about some of their favorite items, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Here are a few things I’m in love with that have recently entered my life:

Utensil-houette Bowl from ModCloth

Isn’t this bowl neat? I really don’t know what it’s going to be used for just yet, other than sitting on my counter and looking pretty. But I needed it – obviously. There is also a matching napkin holder that I’ve contemplated purchasing.

H2OMG Bottle from ModCloth

I grew up on tap water. Tthe idea of having a water purifier is beyond me, but maybe I’ve just been lucky enough to live in areas of the country with great tap water. Either way, besides the obvious statement this bottle was exactly what I was looking for. Over the years I have been purchasing huge packs of bottled water, just so I had something to reuse (refilled with tap water) every day for the week in my lunch box. Sure I recycle them all, but I still felt wasteful and needed a permanent reusable bottle. And here it is!

“Chirp” Tan Wedges by Seychelles from

I have been on the hunt for a tan pair of wedges since last summer. I originally lusted over the Cara Wedge by Rosegold, but after months of online searching I couldn’t find the tan ones in my size. Why did I have to be cursed with the most common size, 7.5?? It’s one of the first sizes to run out, I swear. Alas, I had to direct my energy towards finding a different pair that I enjoy, which was surprisingly difficult. Apparently I am too picky. But then I magically found these one day. They are stinking cute! I ended up having a hard time deciding what color to get because they also come in black and a metallic. But I stuck to the tan, and then discovered I had a $10 credit on my account. Doesn’t get much better than that!

Sweeter than a Cupcake Manicure Set from ModCloth

When it comes to my purse, I am not a typical woman. I don’t have a nail-file, clippers, cosmetic bag, or even a pen most days. (But I sure have a mass amount of coupons stashed away from Living Social and Groupon.) But that changed when I saw this adorable cupcake manicure set. So far I’ve used it to cut a tag on something – off to a great start, haha! Now, if they made it shaped like a cookie I’d have to justify buying another…

Necklace in Wonderland from ModCloth

Yes yet another ModCloth item. I might have an addiction, but they have new stuff everyday and there are so many great things! And did you really expect me to be able to resist dessert jewelry after buying a cupcake manicure set? Just hand over the fake tiny cookies in the cutest little jar ever.

Military Jacket by Free People from Macys

I cannot get enough jackets (now if only the heat would go away). Which means when I saw this on sale, and in a color I did not have yet (charcoal), I didn’t have to think about it before forking over my credit card. And I had an additional $20 off coupon. Promise I’m not an extreme couponer. I wish I were that good. (No that is not me in the picture – one day I should post a picture of myself.)

The Gathering Tank from Anthropologie

Did I mention that I am a graduate student? Because that means I should be staying away from stores like Anthropologie. But once I discovered their sale rack, full of items that at their nearly half-off price are typical regular-price ranged to me, I couldn’t stay away. And every now and then I find something that will sadden me if I wait for it to go on sale and runs out of my size. (I check their sale section online every Tuesday morning – cause that’s when stuff goes down my friends.) This shirt is not on sale and yes I own it, because I couldn’t wait (I also bought it in grey). And I had a 15% off coupon to justify. And it totally goes with my chucks, right?…

Callis Tank Dress by Mossimo from Target

Somehow in my overly stocked closet, I did not have a casual black dress. Target to the rescue! During one of my nothing-in-mind trips to Target I found this dress (along with many other things). Inexpensive? Check. In my size? Check. Pockets? Heck yes I’m buying it. Seriously, once I discover that a dress I am interested in has pockets, I can’t get to the cash register fast enough.

Kites in Flight Dress from ModCloth

My newest favorite dress for the summer! It doesn’t have pockets, but it still rocks and I love wearing it with a skinny black belt with a gold clasp. And I like whirling around in it like a 4-year-old. Would you have ever guessed that as a toddler I dressed myself in layered dresses? Then I went through a tom-boy phase, a preppy phase, and a punky phase (even had fabulous purple hair). Now I’m a blend of everything.

What are your inedible favorites?

Anything goes with Chucks! That’s why they’re so awesome.

They really are! I wear them more than any other shoe I own.

I heart dessert jewelry:-)
