🤔 Thinking this one over…yeah…No.

For living in NYC, dievca loves color.  It must be a Midwestern leftover – but she sprinkles color accents around her NYC black daily.  And when she has a Gala – no LBD – COLORPOP!

Anyways, this watch came to her attention:

Private Label London Ceramic Rolex Watch $24000
Then she ran into sticker shock – $24,000 (the bottom watch is $26,700).
Apparently its a Rolex Watch with a Ceramic Coating which voids the Rolex Warranty – here’s the description from PRIVATE LABEL LONDON:

On the hunt for Bling (for a friend 😉😉)

Rhinestone Coffee Mug

Jazzing up your MONDAY MORNING COFFEE!

dievca has a very good friend who encases her phone in this:

Large Crystal Phone Case

she can’t find a coffee mug embellished with those large crystals, so she’s looking at the colorful one above…  Hmmm, maybe dievca could make the mug for her friend – a little DIY project.  Something to ponder.

In researching sparkly, glittery gifts for her IRL friend – dievca started to think about another blogger, a virtual friend, a “little” who loves color and bling.
“Cinnamon and Sparkles” has stepped away from the WordPress account with that handle (
vanillawithatouchofcinnamon.wordpress.com) and her Cinnamon email account is closed. dievca is wishing her the best and sending love her way if she stops by for a peek. XO

A cut above: Primecut Bags

dievca was seeking a shearling piece of clothing or bag – nothing on eBay was catching her attention. The prime designer’s had boring offerings…except for Bottega Veneta.  Their shearling bags were/are too dear ($2500). dievca stepped away from the search.

Then she ran into PRIMECUT BAGS by accident – on Black Friday!

This well-made backpack is now hers (from Urban Outfitters on sale):

The back is black leather and the interior is lined in linen.

Here are some other options:

ABOUT
Primecut bags are handcrafted in our Portland, Oregon workshop. Each bag is carefully constructed, taking into account the unique properties of the materials used.

Founded in 2013, deep in the confines of her basement, Lizzie began experimenting with leather bags. She was intrigued by the diversity and unique properties of hair-on-hide. Using her mother’s old Pfaff sewing machine along with an old Yamata industrial machine, she experimented with different leathers, sizes, proportions, and manufacturing techniques.

In 2017, Lizzie moved from her basement to Primecut’s current Studio. Since 2013, she has upgraded her manufacturing to include new machines, employees, and a light-filled production studio.

Our process begins with carefully sourcing cowhides and shearling from tanneries throughout the world. Each material is selected based on its quality, weight, and durability. Speaking to the nature of the material we love curating our designs with both a sense of aesthetic proportion and a bit of playfulness.

Our bags reflect our playful design aesthetic. Slight variations in pattern, color, and texture represent the uniqueness in each Primecut piece.
