Hey all,

I've posted a little widget (designed by Queen Michelle) to the side of the blog in support of Wendy Brandes' latest fundraising efforts to help out awesome blogger Sister Wolf. She's sarcastic and blunt and brilliant!  And she's also had a lot of troubles this year - enough to make you want to reach out and give her a big ol' hug over the Internet.  

So, do you have a 'Team Jacob' or dog-lover friend in your circle? This would be a PERFECT Hanukkah/Christmas gift!  As you can see, I already own the Little Woolf necklace, and I can attest to its amazing quality - as with any Wendy Brandes piece! It's very detailed, and although small, it still has a good, hefty feeling to it.  I always get tons of compliments when I'm wearing this necklace.  Women love, men love it, little kids love it!  

I'm tempted to ask WendyB to make me Little Woolf earrings using two of the little doggies.  You hear that, Miz Brandes?  You make me earrings out of them wolves, and I will pay for the price of two necklaces!   

If you don't like dogs/wolves (shame on you!), you can still get in on the action with the infamous Wendy Brandes Swear Rings.  Tell people to f*ck off in the most fashionable, sassy way possible!

Surrounded + Wendy

Top, H&M.  Both rings, Wendy Brandes

When the wonderfully talented Mimi Jung of the Brook&Lyn boutique/blog (check out her amazing personal style!) mentioned that her 'Surrounded' collection would be available in black, I was suuuuuuuper stoked.  I've been trying to stock up on more interesting accessories, and I really loved the way the braided rope looked in her original collection featuring white rope.  But me + anything white = inevitable stain action.  And I don't know how the Tide pen works on shiny, braided rope.  So I'm happy that Mimi has added a black collection.  I shall consider this one of several early Birthmas (birthday + Christmas) presents to me, myself, and I.

And we all know my undying love for the fabulous WendyB.  The Asterisk ring is my third purchase (after the Borgia poison ring and the Little Woolf necklace), and definitely not my last.  Ohhhh yes.
