Timeless Monogrammed Handbags!

9 Jan

Who doesn’t love a monogrammed bag- or monogrammed anything for that matter?  I can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I just love slapping my initials on any accessory  that I can. This post focuses on two of my favorite timeless carryalls that will be around for seasons to come. Both of these classic shaped bags have top handles for handheld wear as well as a cross body strap for hands free wear(perfect for busy moms). They are both available in an assortment of rich colors and are made of supple leather. The bags are large enough to hold everything but not too oversized or bulky.  If you’ve been looking for an investment bag that won’t go out of style anytime soon- these are the bags for you. They make a statement without being too “showy” or over the top, making them the perfect bags whether you’re a ‘fancy’ or ‘casual’ fashionista.

Must Have Fall Heels!!!

14 Oct

Fall weather is here- well not so much in Los Angeles- but for fashion’s sake let’s play pretend.  Who doesn’t love Fall fashion?  Boots, coats, scarves and BADASS heels!!!! During the cooler months when we are all bundled up, it’s the perfect time to step up your heel game. Often times your heels and bag are the main focus of your look during these months.

Below are some of my favorite Fall heels.

 

Leopard high ankle strap heels.  Leopard heels pair with anything–try it!

Laced up heels. Sexy caged heels can spice up your dress and jeans.

PFW! Elie Saab!!!

4 Mar

Oooooooh Lordie where do I begin with this collection? Elie Saab designs some of the most remarkable pieces in fashion, every season year after year!!!!! Known for his amazing embroideries and appliqués, the designer’s  Fall collection did not disappoint! So many glorious looks cascaded down the runway and will without a doubt be seen a many red carpets in the future. The rich color palette included emerald, burgundy and dusty rose. With no shortage of sparkle and sexy, this is my favorite collection featured at paris fashion week! Bravo Elie Saab!
