It Is But It Isn't

Oxford Shirt by Burberry, Denim Shirt by Uniqlo, Chocolate iPhone Case by Homade, Luster Ring by Ugo Cacciatori, Hammered Ring by Louis Vuitton, Y-Mail Ring by Yves Saint Laurent, Barbed Wire Ring by Burberry

At a young age I discovered safes disguised as books (those thick books with a huge hole in it to stash valuables) and ever since I was fascinated by objects that looked like one thing but was something completely different.

WIN. I saw this "Chocolate Bar" iPhone case randomly somewhere on the Internet and instantly fell in love. It looks delicious, but I cannot use it when going out. The phone pops out of the case quite easily, so really it acts as a protective sleeve from keys and other potential scratch inducing items. I normally use a handbag anyway, so it was a small/practical investment.

Also, my Barbed Wire Ring finally arrived from Burberry. It took a while to track down, but it was worth the wait. It is another physical metaphor that I adore. I accidentally "keyed" a car the other night while intoxicated innocently strolling along the street, but casualties are to be expected with such a dangerous ring. Chalk it up to Karma (whose, I don't know).
