Fortunately, I "got real" when I saw Le Métier's de Beauté's Custom, Limited-Edition Fragrance Cufflinks ($3,500) at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie. I thought about all the makeup I could have, and I also reminded myself that I've spent too much lately. I had a critical case of the I-wants that...

Pretty peplums, cute duffle coats, cuff bangles and high waisted denim. There's one knitted jumper/dress I'm hoping I can still find in store as it's sold out online - gold and white with sequins speckled all over it. So pretty!
