BAGS BAGS BAGS

December 13, 2010

So sorry for the lack of posting lately.  I am knee deep in sketches and materials with my cousin Lauren aka LoLo.  She helps me with sketching and ideas.  I thought it would be appropriate to do a post on some of my all time favorite handbags.  If I didn’t design them myself, you might see me carrying one of these:

Alexander Wang “Rocco Mini Duffle Bag”

 

 

 

Foley + Corinna “Moto Hobo”

 

Rebecca Minkoff “MAC Clutch”

 

What are your favorite bags and what do you look for in a great purse??

Tonight’s Attire

December 7, 2010

Gingham perfect shirt

Pour La Victoire Dilon Suede Platform Booties

Tonight I get to celebrate an early Christmas with my best friend.  We are going to celebrate with a nice dinner.  We aren’t supposed to get each other gifts this year but I couldn’t resist getting something small for her (shhhh, don’t tell.)  I like to push her fashion boundaries and force her to try out new trends.  I will have to do a post on what I got her soon.

But for tonight’s outfit inspiration, I’m drawing from a cute look I saw in the J. Crew store today.  They had a red plaid shirt tucked into a sequin mini skirt.  It’s nothing I would have ever put together on my own but I loved the juxtaposition of the 2 pieces.   I have my sequin mini from F21 seen here.  I will pair it with black tights and my new F21 boots that look like the ones I really want (see photo above) or here.

I will try to take photos and post soon!!

Garage Sale Find!

December 2, 2010


Garage Sale Jacket, Gap Tank, Gap Always Skinny Jeans, Gap Socks, F21 Booties, F21 Ring

 

I am super excited about this awesome sequin jacket that I recently found at a garage sale!!  It still had the tags on it and I got it for $10.  I instantly loved it when I saw it hanging on a rack of random shirts and motorcycle jackets.  It’s the perfect thing to wear to a Christmas party… it’s fun, sparkly, a bit gawdy and ridiculously colorful.  When paired with jeans and my new chunky striped Gap socks, it feels like I’m put together without being overdone.

Yellow Tights

December 1, 2010

 

Today I wore my new yellow tights (F21) with a black dress and black chunky platform clogs (Me Too).  I have never gotten so many compliments on hosiery in my life.  Maybe it’s the holidays but lately I’m feeling festive and a little more adventurous with my wardrobe.  I feel the need to infuse bright colors into my otherwise neutral and all black winter wardrobe.  I’m wondering if it’s just me or is everyone feeling more fun this holiday season?
