I guess there's no theme among my Mall Madness Monday pics this week, unless you count crazy as a theme. Seriously, with the influx of all the blogs I've been reading, I am starting to feel like my taste is all over the place. I guess on one hand it's good, stepping outside your comfort zone (I mean, who would have ever thought that I would be interested in spiky accessories?!) but it also further illustrates my point that trendy items should never be purchased for more than $20, because let's be real: half of this stuff I would probably shudder at six months later.
So here it is, my slightly eclectic mix of desirables this week. I know, I need help.

so i've never been a "tough" girl, but lately i'm just dying over spikes
left & right. i'm still on the fence about the smoking slippers trend,
but i guess if you're going to do it you might as well go all out, eh?
i just want skinny colored belts, like all the time. is that bad?
at the blogger meetup on thursday, i met morgan who was wearing an
amazing peach kate spade statement necklace. she said she got it for a
great deal, so immediately i liked her. this cheapo version is similar in
color & is also available in mint!

this bag is the perfect "i wish this was a real birkin" size. but even at
tj maxx, it's $180. so it's probably just as far away from me as an

i am obviously obsessed with this new designer collabo at banana. crazy
colors & patterns are always okay in my book. maybe two years from now
i'll score some at the factory store for 75% off.
again with the spikes. i think they're easiest to wear in jewel form. also
that's the most inconspicuous way to disguise your weapons.

per last week's post it's pretty apparent that i want a satchel. i have been
searching high & low for an inexpensive version & have come up short
(because $68 is not inexpensive for a struggling twenty-something, no
matter what anyone says). my sis-in-law gave me the heads up on this
steve madden version @ tj maxx. little sad- no pink, but for $30 the
options there can't be beat. also it's patent & shiny. win win.
