Shoe Collection: Balenciaga Fall 2009

I've been on a Balenciaga kick lately with shoes... I got these from Barney's a couple months ago. I wasn't trying to get them in black, but that was all they had left in my size. I would've loved the ones I posted here... but a size 39 will ever fit.

Taking a Trip: Boston- Food and Spirit Edition

I went to a some great places in Boston that some friends recommended. We also found some places while just roaming around, which was a lot fun.

What's in the Closet: Vintage MIT Brass Rat Ring

It has taken me a while for me to post this... This is quite possibly my favorite piece of jewelry that I own. I wear it more than any other piece of jewelry that I own, because it's kind of underrated, just a simple band of gold with details. It took me a couple of years to find it. It's a 1970 MIT class ring. I'm not a class ring kind of person, but when I first saw this ring on a 70+ women, I was hooked.

I asked her simply, "What kind of ring are you wearing?"

"It's my late husbands MIT ring."

I spent a pretty penny on this thing. I mean I'm kind of embarrassed really, but it's so hard to find and usually really expensive when you find one. They are very coveted. It's the most recognized class ring, but it's only if you know what it is. (It's almost like having a Super Bowl ring but for colleges.) Since I did just take the trip to Boston, I felt like it was very appropriate to finally post it. I love how the gold looks aged more than anything and I found it in really good condition considering how old it is. I had an incident where I almost lost the ring... thank goodness I didn't. I seriously would've had a meltdown. I did lose something else, but it turned out to not be as important as I thought, because at least it's easier to find another one of those than this thing.

Taking a Trip: Boston

I always feel like I need to get out of New York City and miss it for a while. I have never gone to Boston before, so since it wasn't too far to get there... my friend Tracey and I decided to take a trip there and have some fun.

Boston is a pretty small city, which kind of reminds me of San Francisco a bit. I can't believe how many major universities are crammed right next to each other.
