I’m a huge Sex and the City fan and I always have been. I loved all the girls but I probably liked Carrie the most. I’m a fashion lover and she was true New York fashionista. If you’re a fan of the show, remember when she was robbed and she didn’t want the robber to take her Jimmy Choo‘s? Or what about when she was flat broke and was shocked she’s spent so much on shoes? Or how about when someone stole her Manolo Blahnik shoes at a party and her friend didn’t want to pay for them? Yes, as you can see I’m a die hard fan and I’ve seen every single episode. I bring this up, because a majority of the time we saw Carrie carrying a Fendi Baguette in the show. I suppose it was her handbag of choice and it made me love the bag so much that I wanted one. Unfortunately, I was never able to get one but I still can’t wait for the day that I own one!
I’m a classic and timeless kind of girl when it comes to my fashion taste. My wardrobe style is very modern Audrey Hepburn. She’s my idol and you’ll always find me in dresses, skirts and shirts that I think she would wear. However, every now and then I like to dress kind of edgy just to be a little different. It doesn’t happen very often but when it does I like to go all out. The Michael Kors Jet Set Perforated Clutches have that rocker but yet fashionable look to it and I love it. I also love that it’s not too big and I can use it on those days when I’m feeling lazy. I can put my essentials in it and still have an accessory that looks stylish. A big plus too is that it has a wrist strap so I can this bag in my hand or wrap it around my wrist and call it a day.
At the moment, I’m really digging bright and neon colors. Just two weeks ago I bought a gorgeous button down collared shirt from Express that’s like a neon pink and it’s to die for. I’ve worn it 3 times since I’ve had it already and I always get compliments on it. It’s Spring and Summer will be here soon so we might as well wear and accessorize with beautiful colors. When I saw the Michael Kors “Selma” Saffiano Satchel I literally screamed. Those two colors look amazing together and the bag itself is so eye catching. I’ve liked this bag ever since I laid eyes on it a few months ago. However, I only saw it in solid colors when it was first released. Color blocking is in right now and it looks insane on this bag.
I’m color obsessed at the moment and I can’t get enough of bright beautiful colors! I was never like that so this is a huge stretch and change for me but I have to say I like it. I’ve been on the hunt for a new handbag lately and when I came across the Gucci “Bright Bit” Handbag Collection my mouth dropped. First and foremost, I love the whole style of the bag. It’s simple and extremely classy. What I love the most about this bag, is that unless you are a fashion lover you would have no idea this bag was Gucci. The gold hardware compliments the bag well and it’s by far one of the prettiest handbags I’ve seen this year.
Spring is here and Summer will be here sooner than we know it. In the fashion world we are currently surrounded by color and I love it. Which is odd to hear me say because for a few years I was into the black and white trend. I literally only bought and wore clothes that were black and white all year long. I wasn’t morbid I just liked all my dresses, skirts and shirts to be black and white. For some strange reason, when 2013 came I felt the need to branch out and get back to bringing some color in my life. Right now I’m all into bright and pastel colors and I can’t get enough of them. When I saw the Prada Degrade Sequin Paillettes Pouch I smiled.
I know we have seen the Alexander McQueen “Britannia” Crystal Skull Clutch before. We are all use to seeing it in the colors that represent the UK, red, white and blue. However, the clutch is so beautiful and fun that it’s great to see it released in other colors. I have to admit orange is one of my least favorite colors but I absolutely love it on this clutch. This clutch looks even cuter now and more perfect for the Spring and Summer. My Father’s family is English so I’m accustomed to seeing the British flag everywhere. However, I myself was born in the United States so for me it’s nice to see this beautiful clutch in a different color. It would be kind of odd for me to carry around a clutch of the Union Flag in the appropriate colors when I’m not from the UK but I don’t see a problem carrying around an orange one! It kind of states I’m proud to have English blood in me but I respect I’m not from there so I won’t carry around the actual colors.
As I’ve stated repeatedly in my blog posts I’m kind of obsessed with evening bags and Judith Leiber is one of my favorite designers for them. No, I don’t any Judith Leiber clutches but I promise you that one day I will have a collection of them! They are so unique and I firmly believe every woman can find at least one Judith Leiber clutch she loves. There is literally a bag for everything! I personally like anything girly or pink so I fell in love with the “Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sundae” Minaudiere. Not completely girly because anyone can love ice cream but it is pretty unique to look at it. I would expect to see someone eating ice cream while I’m out not carrying a sundae as a bag.
Spring is here, which can only mean pastel colors are in and I love it! Pink and mint are literally everywhere in the fashion world right now and I’m in heaven because of it. Pink and mint are two of my favorite colors so the more we see it the happier I am. I do wish I owned a mint handbag or another pink one. At the moment, I have the Christian Dior “Pochette” style bag from the Girly collection that debuted quite a while ago. It’s old, in great condition and I still love it but I would love a new pink bag! When I saw the Tory Burch Robinson “Spectator” Mini Cross Body Bag my mouth dropped. I absolutely adore Tory Burch and this bag is adorable! It’s little, pink and perfect for Spring.
When it comes to fashion I love classy, simple and sophisticated looking things. I’m the type of girl that always dresses up even if I’m just going to the grocery store. Some say I’m weird but is there anything wrong with wanting to be put together at all times? I love my hair and makeup to always be done and heels are a must. When I think of classy designer brands, Yves Saint Laurent immediately comes to mind. However, the fashion house changed their name so now it’s just Saint Laurent. I currently do now own anything by Saint Laurent but I sure do love the Y Ligne Mini Pochette Crossbody Bag.
