Shop + Tell: Melissa de la Fuente

Who: Melissa de la Fuente, desiger of the lovely Acts of Kindness jewelry line, weekly contributor at Creature Comforts and a special friend whom I met through this crazy world of blogging.
How often do you indie-shop?
Once a week, husband says 2x week! :) He is probably right! So, 8-12 items a month Not all for me of course! Truly!
Scores... a DrikaB Giallo Weekender
How does it make you feel?
Happy, stylish, organized, fresh and unique
What made you buy it?
Well, the first thing that made me buy it was it's looks! It was love at first sight! Then, I liked it's size and price. I thought it was a good price and something I could swing as I needed a new purse.

Thanks Melissa!!
