2. "Naive" by The Kooks (not new, but I have loved them for a bit now... hoping to head to the show next month in Brooklyn)

The video makes me think of Donnie Darko. Love Bat for Lashes.

Flora said...

Oh my! Wow! I love that first ring. I need some of that!

They are all so lovely. The bent key ring I really like.

Sharon said...

How lovely! Amethyst is my birthstone, and purple is one of my favorite colors to wear: Prince approves, no? That cocktail ring is so lush.

Amethyst is always pretty! Have you done a blue topaz post?

Sarah B. said...

I LOVE that video. I'd forgotten it, thanks for the reminder!

Ambika: Ditto. And either knowingly or unknowingly, you corrected me, which I thank ye for. I always add an "s" to Bat.

Flora: Me too!

TCH: And it's pretty affordable, which charmed the hell out of me.

Sharon: Man! Now I wish I had called this post "Prince Approves!"

Wendy: Not yet. The amethyst just makes me think of spring, and after all this warm weather... I shall do blue topaz though! Those are relatively easy posts and I'm scared of getting blog-burnt-out.

Sarah B.: My pleasure! I love it too... she's so seductive.

That Met Museum necklace is great! I must restrain myself from watching the video, I've got to listen to all the music I downloaded today first!
