Industrial chic Just got Better!

22 Apr

If you follow me on any social media platform, it is no secret that I have a small obsession with Giles & Brother railroad spike bracelets.  I have so many styles of jewelry that I wear from dainty to colorful to bold, but my all time love would be modern/minimal pieces.  The Giles & Brother railroad spikes are super minimal with a bit of edge. The railroad spikes come in three sizes Original(thick) Skinny(medium)and Mini(thin) my preference has always been the “skinny”size  but I recently ordered the mini and I love it, it’s super dainty and delicate. How could these bracelets possibly get any better you ask???? Well, they are now available in precious metals!!! YES!!!!  If you’re a jewelry connoisseur you can rock a SOLID GOLD G&B bracelet!!!  These bracelets are also unisex which is very cool!

G&B bracelets are available in different finishes including brass, hematite, yellow gold tone, rose gold tone and silver tone. Sterling silver is also an option and solid gold(rose & yellow).

My Favorite Quilted Bag!

22 Jan

Quilted handbags have been around for quite  awhile and are the perfect timeless style to include in your handbag collection. The beauty about quilted bags is that they can be worn with anything from an evening dress to a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Every designer has their own take on the quilted bag with Chanel being the most recognized. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock- you can’t get your hands on a Chanel bag for less than $1500 and that’s the LOW END. That brings me to the entire point of this post; Most people would love a Chanel bag yet most people could never afford one- and there aren’t too many great options for a well made quilted bag without going bankrupt in the process… UNTIL NOW- Rebecca Minkoff has outdone herself with the Quilted Love Bag!!! These bags are so well made and are priced at $295 for the standard size and $195 for the mini. Not exactly cheap but totally doable!!! They look and feel like a million bucks and are available in an array of colors and hardware options. I have one in the standard size. I love it and highly recommend it!

The Quilted Love bag can be worn with the chain long for cross body wear, with the chain doubled for shoulder wear or worn without the chain as a clutch! Who doesn’t love options??!!!! I also love how these bags have an outside pocket for phone or keys!

Must Have: Mini Crossbody Bags!

13 Jan

Mini cross body bags are a must have in every handbag collection. They are hands free and just the right size to hold your essentials. Mini bags are perfect for everything from running errands to a night out dancing, these versatile bags are truly day to-night! With so many designers making mini versions of their top-selling bags, it can be a daunting task trying to choose the right bag for you. Hopefully I can help you with that decision. Below are some of my favorite cross body cuties.

Look For Less!

3 Dec

Phillip Lim’s Pashli bag has been a HUGE success among fashion bloggers and bag loving ladies for some time now and the mini version is just as popular. The original Pashli bag retails for upwards of $895  while the mini starts at $695  depending on what material you choose. When Lim collaborated with Target last year and designed a similar version of the coveted bag at a fraction of the price, fashionistas lined up to get their hands on the affordable version and it quickly sold out. Since then, there have been quite a few similar versions but I must say, this Forever 21 version made me look TWICE and it retails for less than $25!!!!! Check it out!
