friday faves: 3.11.11

friday again?  already??  i know that for nearly everyone, fridays are fantastic [*ahem* TGIF *ahem*].  but for me, fridays are sort of like my sundays.  sundays where you still have to work all day, and actually usually longer than most other days.  my store opens on the weekends, turning weekends into hot beds of stress, and fridays into anxiety-central.  i think that's why i do these "friday faves" posts -- to remind myself of beautiful, quirky, and clever things while i slave away at work, freaking out about the upcoming weekend.  

but enough about that.  here are this week's friday faves! ::

~ zooey deschanel on the cover of lucky ~
in my mind, no one is cuter than zooey.  going out to buy this issue ASAP! [image via]

~ another of my fave celebs ~
miss audrey, of course -- the epitome of grace, class, & natural beauty.
looooove this b&w picture of her.  [by philippe halsman, 1955; via]

~ lace tote ~
i'm a sucker for totes.  not so much expensive purses that should be in a museum and not on your arm... but totes? oh i love totes!  [even my fave marc jacobs purse is a fun little tote]  in high school i would buy a bunch of cheap canvas totes from the craft stores and then decorate them to match my fave outfits.
which is probably why i love this soft french lace tote so much :)
pretty without being stuffy, and would match most of what i own!

~ this is possible the coolest tote ever! ~
this awesome bag, called the "teen genre tote," lists all the names of the most memorable 80's movie characters.  SWEET! 

  ~ simple & pretty amethyst ring ~
dainty but still sparkly.  and purple.  my kind of ring!
by etsy designer clementine - buy here
