Right This Moment

What are you excited about and inspired by right now? At the moment, these are my favorite things.

"Style is nothing without fit" - Duo Boots
I'm in love with my new Duo Boots. I struggled for years to find boots that fit my legs and my feet. After buying so many pairs I hardly ever wore because they fit badly, I splurged on some Duo Boots. I've worn them almost every day since they arrived. Duo sells boots by shoe size and calf measurement. Whether your legs are skinny or thick, you're guaranteed to get boots that don't gap or pinch. And there will be room to tuck in your skinny jeans! No matter your calf size, Duo Boots hug the curve of your calf, making your legs look shapelier. Duo is based in the UK, so shipping was a ?!#$*, but their customer service is top-notch.

Is it just me, or is the Womanity bottle design straight out of Metropolis?
Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume is my favorite bottled scent. I've worn it since I was 19, and Keith is hooked on A*Men. The last time we stocked up, I came home with a sample of Mugler's new scent, Womanity, and it's divine. On the skin it ripens into a sophisticated, sexy smell that constantly changes. I couldn't place the notes, so I checked Fragrantica, and get this: It smells like sweet ripe figs and caviar. CAVIAR!!! The combination of sweet fruit and salty ocean smell makes my mouth water. When it's time for new perfume, I'm definitely going to buy a bottle of Womanity.

Clutch bag with gum and palm leaves - $70.00 by Sir Tom on etsy
I absolutely love the clutch purses by SirTom on etsy. His bags are handmade works of art: He arranges pretty montages, photographs them, has the image printed onto fabric, and sews the bag together with a silk lining. He also sells pillows and prints of his photos, but the bags are my favorites.

Tea + Rice = Genmaicha Source
Last month, Keith accidentally bought a package of Genmaicha (loose green tea with toasted rice). He didn't like it, but I'm crazy about it. The rice adds a delicious nutty flavor, and I've been drinking it almost every morning since we got it.  Just one word of caution: The rice floats on top of the tea and kind of looks like mouse poops. Don't think about that, okay?.

Mr. Darcy Proposal Scarf
Have you seen Brookish on etsy? It's a librarian's dream come true! This wonderful woman sells shirts, mugs, scarves, tea towels, and more printed with quotes from Jane Austen's novels. This scarf is emblazoned with Mr. Darcy's proposal speech: "In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Swoon. Buy this scarf, and Mr. Darcy's scarf will always keep you warm!

Have a happy weekend, y'all!

Hey, what are you doing this weekend? I'm going to hear Al Gore speak at Belmont University and get his newest book signed. This event is hosted by my favorite bookstore, Parnassus Books. If you're in Nashville, you should come too!
