Bloomingdale’s put together a collage featuring an assortment of the hottest trends for the spring and summer season in one lookbook guide; The Ultimate Accessory Wardrobe.
What I love about the lookbook is there’s something for everyone for whatever your fashion mood is.
* Browse through the ‘Brights’ for a selection of accessories to liven up your look with color popping hues.
* Jump into the ‘Athletic’ section if you are looking for sporty with a feminine twist.
* ‘Metallics’ aren’t just for the winter season anymore. It’s your moment to shimmer and shine with glimmering tones.
* Keep it ‘Romantic’ with sweet candy colored pastels.
* Check out the picks for the effortlessly stylish ‘Bohemian’ trend.
* Or if you’re looking for stylishly simple and classic, standout in some graphic high-contrast ‘Black and White’ print.
Seriously such a great selection in one guide. There are hundreds of items to discover! Here are a few of my top picks from the Bloomingdale’s Ultimate Accessory Lookbook.
The classic LBB (little black bag) is a staple. It goes with everything. I think that everyone should have at least one in their closet. One that I recently fell for is the Gerard Darel Plum bag in perforated black leather. I’m not the only one who’s obsessed with this style. Jessica Alba, a major fan of Gerard Darel handbags, has been spotted all over, from LA to Paris with this bag.
Next month the sweet boyfriend and I will be on our way to the warm tropical beaches of Mexico for our yearly vacation. When it comes to traveling out of the country I usually keep it pretty basic, leaving the Louis Vuitton keepall‘s at home. To me the traveling experience of going internationally (south of the boarder) is much different than traveling domestically for many reasons – Not so much traveling to Mexico, but on the way home I feel like they check your bags every 10 minutes, plus (I know this may sound a little snobby of me) I don’t like it when people with dirty oily hands touch my new-ish, un-aged, still light Louis Vuitton leather. Plus there’s always the fear of a completely booked plane and the chance than my bag will be randomly selected to be placed with the checked luggage or stuffed in one of the overly crowded compartments and someones soda bottle exploding (never happened to me before but I’ve seen this happen). So for those reasons alone, I reserve my Louis Vuitton luggage for domestic travels, first class flights or road trips.
I have a major crush on Givenchy lately. A lot of their recent pieces for the Spring 2013 season have been such a hit for me, styles and colors that I would love to add to my handbag collection (Lucrezia or Micro Nightingale anyone?). One of their recent handheld styles that caught my attention is the Givenchy Croc Stamped Clutch. Not only because of it’s on-the-go style, awesome croc-embossed pattern and a size that’s spacious enough for your daily essentials, but the price tag is ridiculously low for a Givenchy Clutch! $354!!
This beautiful ‘Lutetia’ cerise pink bar is new to Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 collection. I really love the simplicity of this clutch. It has such clean lines and a classic silhouette that it will surely be one of those bags that you’ll find yourself using years from now.
For Missoni I have to admit I’m a little bummed. There is absolutely no hint of Missoni anywhere on this bag, not even the interior lining. The inside of the bag features a striped black and white print – don’t get me wrong, the black and white stripe trend is huge right now (I’m crazy about it!), but it’s just not Missoni.
Color-blocking is still a hot trend right now, so don’t pack up those bags just yet. I have a love-hate relationship with the color-block trend. I think it looks fabulous when like colors are used (neighbors on the colorwheel) but not when the colors are random (like pairing orange, blue and brown on one bag). It’s too chaotic for my style. I know some may look at all the different color combinations as trendy, but I prefer more of the classic look. To me this Miu Miu Madras Two-Tone Bag will look fabulous even beyond the “Color-Block Trend” deadline.
