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!
Nudes are everywhere right now! On your feet (shoes), on your nails (polish), and even on the beach (shame on you, I was talking about nude swimsuits)! But I suppose it should come as no surprise. After all, nudes are definitely a warm season trend. So why not nude handbags as well? They have been popping up left and right lately! I really love this look. Nudes are so simple and chic, plus they go with just about anything! You have to be careful though. There are definitely dos and don’ts with this trend. For example: Do go for rich textures, but don’t pair nudes with perforations (too Band-Aid-ish). Stick with geometric or animal-inspired textures instead.
Alright! Are you ready to give this trend a try now? To get you started, I have a few suggestions below. Check them out! There is something for everyone and for every budget!
Lauren Merkin Molly Suede Croco Clutch. $325
You can’t go wrong with a classic envelope clutch! This style looks absolutely fabulous in nude! I also love the suede and the croco-embossed texture. It is really simple, yet it looks so very rich at the same time.
If you haven’t heard yet, Emerald Green was crowned the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013! And I couldn’t be more happier. Emerald green has always been one of my favorite colors, and now that it was just titled the latest ‘It Color’, I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing it a lot in the coming months.
I’ve been seeing polka dots a lot lately in the fashion world, and I like it! I’ve always seen polka dots as a fun design to wear. Just two weeks ago I bought a white blazer that had black polka dots all over it. It looks as if it would be to gaudy and loud to wear. However, if you pair it up with a simple all black outfit it looks great! At the moment, I own two pairs of shoes and three pieces of clothing that have polka dots all over them. If you know how to style yourself right, polka dots can be really cute to wear.
Lauren Merkin has been hiding in the shadows lately. I see clutches from this designer often, but nothing has really stood out from the typical designs I have come to expect from her. I spotted some animal prints, but that was about as exciting as things were going to get. That is, until now! I stumbled across the Lauren Merkin Molly Clutch and… WOW!
A couple days ago ShopBop launched the Wedding Boutique, a fabulous one stop destination for all brides-to-be. They have a section for it all: wedding dresses (first and of course second), bridesmaid frocks, lingerie, accessories, shoes and even Bags!
Here are my top picks from the Wedding Boutique:
Michelle Fantaci for Lauren Merkin Hudson Crackle Clutch – $295
Lauren Merkin has teamed up with the Young Survival Coalition to support Breast Cancer Awareness month.
They have created an ultra lux exclusive edition of the iconic Diana clutch, dressed in (the breast cancer awareness color) soft pink lambskin and accessorized with Swarovski crystals. The clutch retails for $275 with 50% of the proceeds of this Diana will be donated to YSC for the month of October.
Most of you Lauren Merkin fans know the classic Louise style, but did you know it recently got a limited edition makeover? What makes this Limited Edition so spectacular is the 3-in-1 design and unique collaboration with online fashion website, FashionStake.
The LE Louise clutch by Lauren Merkin has never been produced, in fact the results of how well this bag does in the pre-order phase determines if this bag ever sees the light of day. It’s really a unique concept..
