I’ve always liked the Alexander Wang Rocco bag, a buttery soft bag with studs on the bottom for a little bit of edge. I first spotted the bag on Kristin Cavallari a few years back and have since seen them everywhere. I really liked how there were different color options for the studs like gold, black nickel, silver etc. I just didn’t find that it “spoke” to my heart which is a must when you’re spending a pretty penny……UNTIL NOW……I just about DIED recently when I saw this bag in person with rose gold hardware! It was speaking to me then!!!!!!!! It is a beauty for sure with just enough super shiny rose studs gold against the soft black pebbled leather and two rolled top handles and a shoulder strap make the bag versatile and easy to wear.
$895 at Shopbop.
I am in love with this bag.
This month marks the 66th birthday of the bikini! In 1946 July 5th to be exact French designer Louis Réard introduced the daring two piece to the world. So daring that at first Parisian models refused to wear his design. However a dancer named Micheline Bernardini took on the challenge and became the first woman ever to wear a bikini, sparking a trend that would never end. The bikini has been ever-changing since it’s debut in the 1940’s, let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Turn of the century
2012!!!! itsy bitsy teenie weenie!
Contrary to the latest Sports Illustrated cover, not everyone is wearing tiny string bikinis. There are many different styles being worn today. I love how there is no definition of the “now” bikini. They come in a variety of colors, patterns, materials and cuts! Cheers to variety!

Eva Longoria and Diane Krugar practically shut the red carpet down today at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival in Southern France. I vote them BEST DRESSED, hands down! The biggest and most glamorous film festival is always the talk of the fashion industry but MY GOODNESS this is more than I expected on Day 1 of the 12 day festival. I’m curious what else Eva & Diane have packed in their suitcases!!!!! They’re just getting started.
