I’m definitely a Louis Vuitton girl and I always will be. Just last week I was at the Neiman Marcus here in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the Galleria Mall. I was looking at the Prada “Parabole”, which I’m absolutely in love with, and the Sales Associate was telling me all about the bag. I remember, I kept saying to him “But I’m a Louis girl, it’s hard to cheat”. He then told me Chanel girls like Celine. Louis Vuitton girls like Prada. Michael Kors girls like Kate Spade. Not sue how much I believe in that because I like anything that’s cute. If it fits my style I’ll most likely love it regardless of the brand!
I didn’t end up ordering the Prada “Parabole” because I purchased a bag last month! The Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 30 “Bandouliere” and I’ve used it almost everyday since I’ve had it. I’ve always wanted a Damier Speedy 30 and when I realized about two months later that the bag had came out with the strap making it now the “Bandouliere” and I convinced myself that I has to have it!
I always hear the saying, “Less is more” in Acting School and I have to say that sometimes I believe it! I love looking and feeling glamorous but sometimes I think I look prettiest with less of everything. The Chloe Lucy Bag reminded me of the quote from above. It’s one of the simplest bags I’ve fallen in love with, and it’s definitely one of the most classiest. As I always have to mention, the color and the hardware are to die for. Gold and navy look so beautiful together and kind of gives off that Sailor look.
I’m not into Tiffany’s jewelry so much but boy do I love everything else especially the sunglasses. I currently have two pairs of sunglasses by Tiffany and I wish for many more. I even love their mugs and plates. Pretty much anything that adorns the Tiffany & Co.’s colors usually is beautiful. As soon as I saw the Kate Spade Battery Park ‘Evalyn’ Tote my heart smiles. However, before I saw that it was by Kate Spade I asked myself if Tiffany was selling bags at Neiman Marcus now. Thankfully my guess was wrong and the bag ended up being by one of my favorite designer brands, Kate Spade.
I’m currently in Acting school and I have to tell you I love every bit of it. I went to college for something I don’t want to do and now that I’m in school for something I love, it’s so exciting. I originally went to school for Broadcast Journalism, fell out of love with it and I finally found something I could see myself doing forever. What I love about acting is that I can instantly be someone I’m not. When I’m acting the character I’m playing has entered the room and I have left. It’s truly an exciting experience and I’m loving every bit of it.
I love crazy and unique fashion. I often shop for clothes at boutiques just so I can have pieces in my closet that others don’t have. There is a boutique I shop at here in Fort Lauderdale, FL that only had six of everything piece of clothing in the store. Once the store is out of something, they’re out and I love that! When I saw the ONE by ashlyn’d “Honor Roll” Chalkboard Clutch I laughed! What an awesome and fun accessory to own!
My favorite color in the whole entire world is pink! I’m an extreme girly girl and if I had it my way my house would probably resemble Barbie’s Malibu Mansion. All pink, girly and fashionable! I’m sure if you are reading this at some point in your life you played with Barbie’s and remember how her whole entire world was engulfed in pink. That would be me if I could actually do it. I kid you not, I love pink! When it comes to fashion, I don’t wear too much pink but I do love pink accessories. Almost everything I own is black, white or pink. In December, I bought the pink Marc Jacobs clutch from the Target + Neiman Marcus collection and I absolutely adore it! I use it as a makeup bag and it still looks beautiful! However, when I saw the Lauren Merkin “Winne” Studded Clutch it made me want to trade in my Marc Jacobs bag for it!
Side tote’s are so in right now thanks to Celine for pretty much starting the trend. I hate to admit this, but I’m not a fan of Celine handbags. It could be because I like to be different and it seems like the “It” bag to own right now so of course I want no part of it. Maybe when Celine handbags aren’t so popular anymore is when I will start to love them.
However, lots of designers are also getting in on the side tote trend and I’m actually loving the Michael Kors “Miranda” Grommet Studded Tote. I prefer it over any Celine bag! It’s fun, it’s edgy and looks really stylish.
I love how when you look inside this bag it looks so incredibly plain. If I saw a picture of just the inside of this bag I would never guess it was a designer bag. However, then you look at the outside of the bag and it’s this gorgeous, trendy looking bag! What’s good about the inside being so empty and plain is that you can fit whatever you want it in. No pockets or inserts to get in the way, just throw your stuff in and off you go! This is also the type of bag that can go with any outfit. Dress, jeans, skirts, casual, fancy it can literally go with any style of outfit! It’s a versatile bag and versatile bags always get an A+ from me especially if they’re gorgeous!
I’ve been in acting school for a little over a year now and I have absolutely fell in love with it. I love acting and each class I take makes me an even better Actor. My dream is to attend the William Esper Acting Studio in New York City and I’m determined to get in. My ultimate goal is to be in films and when I saw the Charlotte Olympia “Movieland” Magazine Clutch I instantly smiled. I’d like to believe this is the type of clutch any female Actor would love to own, even if it just sits on a shelf most of the time in your house. I would personally place this right next to my framed magazine ads and I would carry it to every acting class. Heck, I would even carry it to every audition as a reminder to continue to keep working hard and to keep in mind my goals. I love the quote on it, “How you can look like a movie star” it’s so fitting for any acting student. We strive to look out best everyday, we kind of have to, but we also aspire to be movie stars. Well at least I know I do!
About three weeks ago, I went to Neiman Marcus and treated myself to a beautiful Louis Vuitton bag. I bought myself the Damier Speedy 30 “Bandouliere” and words can’t even describe how much I love it. I’ve used it almost everyday since I’m purchased it and it truly is a classic and timeless piece that I will cherish forever. Now I’m desperately on the hunt for a black handbag. I’m a Louis Vuitton girl 100%, however the company doesn’t have a black bag that I’m absolutely in love with. I’m not into the Epi collection and nothing else has caught my eye. However, when I was on the Neiman Marcus website about a week ago I fell in love with the Prada Saffiano Parabole Tote. I got my first Prada bag when I was a Senior in high school and I haven’t really paid much attention to the brand since. As soon as I spotted this bag I knew I would love it in person and that I had to have it.
