"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Welcome to the Droolry Box

What's a Droolry Box? Well, I have to confess I stole this idea of the Droolry Box from my friend Susan over at She's Becoming DoughMessTic. The Droolry (it sounds like jewelry, get it?) Box is a place to feature items I've run across and developed a severe case of lust for while online window shopping.

I have been looking for a new wallet. Mine is ancient and starting to fall apart. I found one (well, two actually) today that I desperately want. These lovely, lust inducing wallets are made by Fossil...
the Sasha Multi Multifunction

Now, I just have to figure out how to justify $40 to $45 for a wallet...LOL.

The other recent entries into the Droolry Box are some gorgeous shoes (you know, the kind we referred to as Fuck Me pumps way back when). For those of you who don't know it, I have a serious shoe addiction. If money weren't an issue, I would have a closet just devoted to shoes. We won't discuss the cost of these Droolry Box entries because that is just too depressing.
These lovely red open toe pumps
are from Alexander McQueen

and, this lovely is called
the Yellow Madagascar Peep Toe "Gres's" Pumps
by Christian Louboutin.

What would you put in your Droolry Box?

edited to add...I am so excited. One of my friend's from high school told me there is a Fossil outlet store in Smithfield, NC. I see a trip in my future.

Hmmm. I will have to think about my Droolry Box. I am getting one thing that I wanted...and was luck enough to have the money for right when I wanted it....orange blossom honey is in the mail for me. :-)
ICLW and glad to visit as usual. :-)

I NEED those shoes. For real!

Oh-And my droolry box would contain a butter yellow kitchenaid mixer and a whole ding dang set of Le Creuset!

Sandy said...

Ok, I'm drooling! LOVE that cute wallet! Those shoes...I'm just not coordinate enough (I drool over ballet flats, ha ha).

My droolry box... pretty much any jewelery with rubies or sapphires, good cookware, a fancy fountain pen, antique books, and a pug. How's that for an odd mix?

I like the drooly box! I have a few stuff in mine already! lol

Beautiful Mess said...

Ooohhh SHOES! Those are beautiful and oh so sexy!

How long have you had the wallet you have now? I think it's OK to spend $40-$45 on a wallet. You'll use it all the time, plus they usually stay clean as they're always in your purse or pocket.

My droolry box is SO full of purses and wallets to match. maybe even dresses to go with the purses ;o)
*HUGS*

Wow, those are some nice items! I wish I could wear heels like those, my beat up feet can't hang!!!

Quiet Dreams said...

Gorgeous shoes. I think I would probably break my ankle in them (as well as kill my already-have-issues feet). Still, they're gorgeous.

Nina said...

THOSE ARE THE CUTEST SHOES, SQUEE!!!!! Ahem. Sorry. I want jewelry in my droolry box. I also want my own lead apron for x-ray cases at work. And a maid. I'd leave her some food in there and everything.

Ooh, I love these shoes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Happy ICLW!

Another Dreamer said...

Oooo, those red shoes. Oh. my. I am not a shoe addict, only buying them occasionally, but those shoes are HOT.

battynurse said...

Oh, I could come up with so many things for the droolry box. I have a catalog picked out that I love their stuff and one of the first nice things I'll buy myself when I reach my goal weight will be from there.
That wallet and clutch are both really cute.

ICLW - I felt compelled to say that those shoes are just looking for my feet - I just LOVE shoe so much that sometimes I have nightmares of the ones that got away....

Meari said...

LOVE those red peep toe pumps!

Baby On Mind said...

I love the idea of a droolry box. I' have to think about what I want in it. Watches I think... I used to be a huge fan of it. I may start collecting them again. Thanks for the great idea!
