Today is the first day of Spring and colorful fashion is taking over the fashion world with a vengeance and I don’t mind one bit! Which may I add is kind of odd because I’ve been in a black and white phase for a few years but I guess my eyes need to see some color now. So far in the past couple months I’ve bought pastel dresses, shirts with lots of floral prints and bright colored blazers. I’m addicted to color right now and I suppose that’s why I love the Vince Camuto “Cork” Horn Clutch. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a cork handbag before let alone one with colorful splashes all over it and the horn clasp really catches your eye! This would definitely be a fun bag to own because not only does it bring some brightness to your collection but it’s pretty unique too!
I’ve been on the hunt for a tote bag for school that’s not too expensive. I was dating someone last year that bought my school bag for me and now we aren’t dating anymore. I have to use the bag four days a week for school and every time I look at it, I see his face! So with all of that said, I’m in desperate need to find a school bag that I love. Of course, I fall in love with one that $5 short of $300. I spotted the Rebecca Minkoff “Dylan” Tote about a week ago and I instantly fell in love. I originally saw it available in two of my favorite colors, mint and pink. This bag looks very spacious and would fit all my school junk in it!
For years, I was the girl that loved big handbags. I kid you not, for the longest time I carried half my dresser in my bag. Instead of putting just my essentials in my bag I carried all my makeup, makeup brushes, magazines, an agenda, two wallets, a hair brush, hair accessories, etc. You name it and I probably had it in my bag. Now that I’m older I’m much more minimal. The most I carry is my phone, a compact, a lip stick and my keys. With that said, I like smaller bags much better now. When you don’t carry much with you on a daily basis a bigger bag is pointless. Smaller bags keep all my essentials organized and I don’t have to go searching for anything.
I’m obsessed with the color mint and I believe it to be one of the most beautiful colors in the world. Mint is also a beautiful and perfect color to wear during the Spring. Just yesterday, I was at a certain department store and found a pair of mint heels. I kid you not, it was love at first sight and I immediately asked the guy for my size as soon as I saw them. Of course they didn’t have my size and my heart was broken for about an hour. I’m dying for a pair of mint heels and I won’t stop until a pair is mine!
A trend that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon is the stud trend and I don’t mind that one bit. I feel like studs have been in for a while and I can totally see why. Studs can literally make anything that is ugly or bland looking instantly look fabulous. Something so simple can look glamorous with just a few studs on it. I’m a huge fan of gold studs because they literally make everything look flashy. Flashy fashion is fun, pretty and perfect for the evening. The Rachael Ruddick Prism Stud Clutch is a prime example of a white clutch that was made to look stunning by just adding studs to it.
I like unique fashion and it’s always fun to have things that are way different from the norm. Fashionable accessories that are eye catching and show stoppers are always a must for me. With that said, my mouth dropped when I saw the Anya Hindmarch “Earl Valentine” Tote. I must say however, it took me about a minute to really see the tote and focus in on what was on it. When I realized what it was I laughed out loud! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tote with something of this nature on it but at least it was tastefully done.
I like any fashion accessory that features lips on it. Anything that has lips on it always looks ultra feminine and I think all women can relate to it. I know, and I shamefully admit this, I’m definitely someone that kisses mirrors for fun or I kiss paper when I have too much lipstick on. Fingers can carry a lot of germs so instead of taking the access lipstick off with my finger I kiss paper and presto, fixed! If you haven’t done either of those I’m sure there is someone’s cheek you’ve kissed at some point in your life. With that said, I instantly fell in love with the Lizzie Fortunato Lipstick Kiss Clutch. If I was drunk and felt the need to kiss one of my clutches, I’m pretty certain it would look like this one. This clutch is adorable and I would carry it in a heartbeat.
As I’ve written before, I love gorgeous and unique evening clutches. With that said, I’ve fallen head over heels for the Reece Hudson Swarovski Crystals and Stone Bead Minaudiere. This clutch is drop dead gorgeous and if I owned it I would probably carry it non-stop. It’s so bright and pretty that you can even get away with using it during the day time. I personally always dress up and I can already envision a ton of outfits that I could pair up with this beauty. The color is breathtaking and perfect for the upcoming Spring season. Also, the crystals and beads featured on the clutch compliment the color of the bag well and overall the bag is stunning.
Mint is one of my favorite colors at the moment and I absolutely love that it’s pretty much everywhere right now. It’s all over the fashion world and that makes me have a cheek-to-cheek smile! When I saw the Rebecca Minkoff “Jayden” Satchel my heart skipped a beat. It’s drop dead gorgeous and would look beautiful in any handbag collection that is lacking color. Most of my handbags are black and I’m dying to add a pink or mint bag to it. This bag is perfect for the Upcoming Spring season and I want it!
