Enamel heart earrings that look a little psychedelic, from a Cape Cod jewelry store (is it obvious that I acquire a lot of jewelry when I go on vacation?); my top half (newly acquired black Calvin Klein top); my bottom half (favorite diesels and teal converse); topaz ring that I've had for a very long time. That ring is a good indication of my tastes, and how little they've changed.
When I was in junior high, my house was inundated with catalogs: Signals, Sundance, Red Envelope and the like. I would carefully research every product I liked, and then present my mother with a fully annotated Christmas list at the end of the year, each entry rated for desirability with stars. What can I say? I liked to make things easy for my mom. This was one of the higher ranked entries and I've managed to hang onto it ever since.
