OOTD Starring My Favorite New Clutch!

15 May

Hi y’all this is not my typical outfit of the day post, it’s pretty much all about my favorite new clutch. I’ve been getting a lot of questions and comments on this particular outfit and clutch so I thought I’d tackle then all right here right now. This gorgeous dress is from the Webster Miami/ Target collaboration a couple of years ago. The print is magical and the dress is very flattering on. The dress sold out pretty quickly although you may be able to find it on EBay. My favorite nude sandals were $7.99 at Forever 21 last year and my pretty pastel bracelets are from H&M- also last year! My coordinates collection bracelet IS currently available as well as my Gigi New York Coral clutch, my dainty Catbird diamond ring and my mint sunglasses ! Links listed below.

It’s no surprise that I live for the high- low mix and love wearing my high-end jewelry, bags and clothes with my low-end stuff! I feel like the best looks include pieces at all price points. So if you’re on a budget have no fear, you must remember that money can’t buy style, and if you’re a label snob, remember you’re missing out on so much cute stuff if you don’t give it a chance based on price. I can’t stress enough that when you properly execute your high low mix, most people think it’s ALL high-end anyway!!!!! Cheers to stepping outside of your fashion box and jumping aboard the high- low mix train!!! CHOOOO CHOOOO!

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag Review!

28 Nov

Hey guys, I hope you’re doing amazing today. As you all know I did a post on the Alexander Wang Rocco bag with rose gold hardware in early October……I must admit, I  quickly became obsessed!!!!  I ended up caving after about 2 weeks (the fastest I have caved for any handbag) and treated myself to the bag.  Needless to say I LOVE IT and have been wanting to do a review on it and have gotten quite a few requests to do so as well….soooooo today while shooting some pictures for my OOTD on Instagram I took a couple extra shots of the bag to share with you and wanted to talk about a couple of things that I’ve noticed are missing from a lot of other Rocco reviews.

*The bag is beautiful OBVIOUSLY!  * I love the top handles in addition to a shoulder strap although it’s NOT long enough for cross body wear.  * I love the pebbled leather  * I love love love the rose gold hardware, matches a lot of my jewelry, namely my wedding set:) * the rose gold is a very nice tone, not the overpowering ultra cheesy pink shade that some rose gold hardware can have. * heavy-duty and very well made bag* the trademark studded bottom is very cool without being too crazy * the bag has the feel of the LV Speedy with a little more edge

NOW onto the 2 most important points…

1.CON: This bag is HEAVY! I’m talking 4 pounds!!!! EMPTY!  I personally don’t mind it but I know some of you might.

2. PRO: This bag has 2 “secret” pockets outside of the bag……I use one for keys, one for phone & lipstick. I like accessing my phone, keys etc without having to dig around the bottom of the bag.

There you have it…..overall my only con is the weight of the bag, everything else wonderful!!!!!! If you’re on the fence about this bag…..I say go for it!  It will be in your collection for decades to come!
