Sartorial Power Player: Striped Shirt!

24 Feb

str3A Striped button up shirt is a classic wardrobe staple that transcends genres and will never go out of style.  I prefer black & white stripes, but any  color combinations will work. From casual to chic, the possibilities are endless when it comes to this sartorial power player. A striped shirt can be worn with distressed denim, luxe leather, skirts, shorts and slacks. Your mom can pull it off as well as your 20 year old sister. Every wardrobe needs at least one.

Scroll down for some ideas on how to rock the striped button up.

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!

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!

27 Feb

I love love love Tory Burch if you haven’t already notice.  She has some of the best accessories on the market in my opinion.  Her designs are well made and timeless,  I love that you can buy a Tory Burch bag and carry it for a decade or more!  I recently came across a bag at Target that looked strikingly familiar to the  Tory Burch 797 satchel, a beautiful bag!  If you can afford the 797 satchel that’s great but if you can’t, this Target bag is a stylish alternative for those on a budget! Both bags are gorgeous and the links are below! Happy shopping!

Shades, frames, sunglasses  whatever you want to call them, we all own at least one pair. Chances are they are either wayfarers or aviators. These timeless styles are both classic and modern and look good on many different face shapes and features. Lets give credit where credit is due….. Ray Ban is a pioneer when it comes to sunglasses. In 1936 Aviators were originally developed by Ray Ban to protect pilots eyes while flying and in 1956 Ray Ban manufactured the wayfarer, this design was a break from the traditional metal framed eyewear that dominated at that time. Many styles of sunglasses come and go but these two always remain top sellers. If you don’t own a pair yet, try some on and you just may like them. Your eyes will thank you.

Must have Handbag!

17 Mar

The title reads right, I think if there should be at least 1 handbag every woman owns it would be a top handled structured bag with it’s classic silhouette. The practical shape is so timeless that you can go with a wild print or keep it simple and it will remain on trend for as long as you own it.  I’m a handbag addict and I still go back to my top handle structured bags time and time again. Wear with anything from jeans to dresses and it will never look out of  place. Shop my favorite splurges and steals.   YSL navy & beige bag($1,995) available at Nordstrom.  Louis Vuitton multicolored Speedy 30 with pocket detail shown in black and in white($2,670)available at Louis Vuitton.  Bold zig zag print bag in camel($50) available at Lulu’s.
