BBW 2013 Love Mom candle

    I assume that clutch looks less…cheap IRL! Or is it the case of that famous Dolly Parton quote ‘it’s expensive to look this cheap’!

    • Robin says:

      They don’t look like 1300 smackeroos, do they? But I do think they’re cute.

  2. Thalia says:

    Perspex is basically clear plasticy stuff, isn’t it? Like Lucite? I’m sure those look just as cheap in person, if not more so!

  3. Coumarin says:

    I’m with you on the Stephen Jones. Problem is, I’d be through that expensive as heck bottle in a year. :(

  4. lupo says:

    slightly off topic: my mother is still wearing K de Krizia, her signature fragrance, which is becoming more and more difficult to find. i read Krizia re-issued the perfume with a new package, but still -very hard to find. does anybody knows any perfume that can replace that?

    • Robin says:

      Sorry, I can’t help…might be a good thing to bring up on the next open thread poll.

    • Should be easy to stock up on eBay, though!
