It’s finally feeling like fall around here, and I was lucky enough to receive two freebies for the season in the past few weeks. I’ve always been a fan of violet perfumes, and my mom recently ran across one of favorite scents, Violetta di Parma. She picked it up for me on one of her perfume hunts and the bottle came with an atomizer! I’ve never used one before, and it’s definitely an elegant way to apply my perfume each morning. Perfume lovers hold strong opinions when it comes to violet scents, but I’ve always loved this soft and powdery fragrance. I found a bottle years ago at Anthropologie in San Francisco, but haven’t seen it since, so I was thrilled when my mom surprised me.
And Grechen recently held a giveaway for a Gräf & Lantz clutch, and I was the winner! It’s a really lovely clutch and tech case, and I’m planning to use it this fall and winter as a catch-all within my tote bag.
I’m still hoping to get a few things for fall, though I’m waiting for even cooler weather. Are you stocking up on anything this month?
