Of Mars Stones and a Rockstud

Skimming the Wall Street Journal this morning -- this is what mothers of wee ones do, we skim things, as we have little time to really delve -- Nero spotted a piece confirming that some rocks found in Morocco were indeed the fallout from a meteorite shower from Mars. 

In a similarly singular and monumental event, Nero, whilst absent-mindedly poking around a neighboring Nordstrom Rack outlet, came across an object no less otherwordly, rare, mysterious and vaguely threatening -- a Valentino Rockstud Dome bag stamped in a big cat print, with a -- wait for it fair Nerophytes, two-thousand dollar price cut. So the gold-spiked detachable shoulder strap had gone astray somewhere in the cosmos and was MIA...So What. This earthbound, thoroughly mortal carpool mom wasn't about to pass up on this interplanetary orbital offering.

And so the moral of the story is this, dear readers, next time you find yourselves wandering in a field, or shuffling around a sandy desert, or hiking through a secluded wood, look around, watch for clues and listen -- leave no stone unturned. For sometimes, just sometimes, strange and wondrous things fall from the sky.

Hi there Candita,

Thinking it would work well with that fantasy haircut of yours we were discussing ;p

Cheers, Alcira

Dearest Alcira,

such a great bargain and story here. So it waited for you since you wrote to me, I believe in these signs, when something I really like is still there next time I go, it means it is meant to be owned by me and convince myself to get it : ) And your leopard stud beauty is a real great bargain, even without a strap, it costs much less and it should be more I guess because of leopard. My stud was only 50% off in Istanbul but still lucky to get it because in Italy they didnt put that visone color on sale : ) I hope you will have many enjoyable strolls carrying this beauty, with a story to tell : )

Btw it goes so well with your arm beauties too : )

Have a lovely weekend

Dearest Aylin,

Thanks so much for stopping by to weigh in on il gattopardo ;)
And now for the crazier revelation -- two days later I found the accompanying rockstud kitten heel pumps for 60% off.
Yes, the fashion gods are clearly smiling.
Baci, Alcira

Happy New Year Leah,

So great to have you.
Yes, the discount indeed sweetens the deal.
I confess that the current prices on these types of items are so outlandish that I can't bring myself to give them a second look most days.
However, this critter was practically begging to escape impoundment and come home with me.
Cheers and best, Alcira

You bid me on that one too : ) I got the accompanying high heels on the same 50% off only. USA is the place for great bargains!
Baci : )
