you are my sunshine

oh man i can watch the millionaire matchmaker all day!! patty's HILARIOUSSS.. i love how brutally honest she is lol. there was this girl being interviewed to potentially date a millionaire and she was blonde with tons of makeup and a really short boob-showing dress. patty goes.. "are you a whore?" hahah she always says what everyone is thinking with no shame. love itt. do you guys watch it?? i'm watching it as i am blogging =P

OOTW (outfit of the weekend!)
weather in NYC was gorgeouss! it was in the 50's. i think my ideal weather would be all sunshine and between the high 60's and 70's - not too hot and not too cold! so of course the beaming sunshine calls for a dress!
 both the jacket and sweater dress was from H&M. brown boots from nine west.
my camera is getting sucky. it's only good when i take pictures using natural sunlight. so sorry for the bad picture! will invest in a better camera soon.

so part of my haul showcase was this bag from helena de natalio. since i wore it this weekend, i thought i should post it at the same time and ask you for your opinion. so here it is!
lol the second pic looks like i'm about to do the herbal essences commercial. the third pic, i have a retarded face. BUT the bag looks good in the pics and that's all that matters! it's called "sofita" and it can be worn in 1 of 2 ways. 1 - like a crossbody bag, which is the way i wore it in the pics. 2 - the handle can be folded over and made shorter so that it's like a regular handbag. it's usually about $400 when i first saw it in a bag boutique called "blue bag" in soho. but then i saw it on beyond the rack for $199 and got excited.. so of course i bought it! when i first got it though, i noticed a huge scratch on it..
and i've been thinking for a week whether or not to return it. they don't have anymore of these bags so i can't exchange. i am leaning towards returning it because it is a huge noticeable war scar but the more i use it, the more i am falling in love with the bag. it is made of incredibly soft leather and i usually overstuff my bags so sometimes it looks weird being overstuffed, but this bag still looks good and is very comfortable to wear. i dunno! what should i dooooo?? what do you think? to keep or not to keep?
