Bucket List!

10 Feb

I recently received my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag after almost two years of waiting. I’ve been wanting this bucket bag for a while and really love the black/flamma combination, which is lined in red leather. I love how simple the design is with a fun pop of color. The bags are highly coveted and made in Italy in small batches which is why they sell out SO FAST! I am totally obsessed with my new bag and wanted to share it with you along with an affordable alternative.

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.

Look For Less! Loeffler Randall Rider Bag!

19 Aug

Loeffler Randall makes beautiful bags!  Their Rider bag ( a bag that has straps on its backside to hook onto a bicycle) is coveted by bloggers and bag lovers around the world.  I featured the floral Rider bag on my Instagram last week and got so many questions regarding it, leading me to this post today.   The rider bag  retails for $495 and up, which leaves out a lot of fashionable ladies who can’t squeeze it into their budgets.  Buuuuuuuuut-Have no fear, if you’re a fashionista on a budget, you can have a very similarly stylish bag for only $27.80!!!!!

Lovely Lavender Bags!

10 Apr

Earlier this year I announced my “colors of the year”- Emerald and Lavender were the frontrunners and I still feel the same way.  I have been pretty obsessed with purple anything lately but am partial to the light & feminine lavender hue in particular…the pretty pastel screams Spring and is so adorable!  There is no better way to incorporate new colors into your wardrobe  than with a gorgeous new bag!   Lavender pairs especially well with camel, navy, white and other pastels and is quite versatile for a candy color. Love color? wear your lavender bag with a floral dress or pant for the ultimate Spring look.
