Love comes in many shades. But if you wander around shopping areas and pretty much any public vicinity right now, you’ll see how overpowering the shade of red is. Designers from all backgrounds have poured their favorite shades of scarlet onto their accessories, in hopes that you might favor their creation for your Valentines Day affair. Over at Shopbop (dot com), we’ve selected some of the loveliest accessories for your V-Day night out. They’re cute and affordable!
It’s my dream to one day own a Alexander McQueen “Skull” clutch. Judith Leiber has the most beautiful evening clutches but the “Skull” box clutch is right up there too. What I love the most about the “Skull” box clutch is that every season Alexander McQueen makes them look 100% different looking than the last. They maybe the same shape but the pattern is always different. One day, I will own one or two, I know it!
At the moment an Alexander McQueen “Skull” box clutch isn’t in my budget but when I saw the Serpui Marie “bergman” Skull Minaudiere, I screamed! It reminded me of the coveted clutch by McQueen but it was priced a lot less! This is the type of minaudiere that I would use non-stop. It’s gorgeous and would look amazing with my wardrobe. Most of my evening outfits are black and based on the stock photo above, this clutch looks stunning against black!
As I’ve stated over and over again, I’m obsessed with crystals! They make accessories more stylish looking without looking gaudy. Obviously, I would never use anything that adorned in crystals during the day but it makes any evening getup more fabulous. I currently have one Swarovski crystal evening bag, the “Kiosque”, but I wouldn’t mind adding more glamorous bags to my collection. The Serpui Marie “The Girl’s Best Friend” Minaudiere is absolutely stunning and I wish I owned one!
Serpui Marie’s handcrafted handbags are inspired by the tropical gardens that surrounded her during her childhood in Brazil. Although I have never heard of this designer, her inspiration clearly shows in her creations. I love the mix of bold colors and natural elements. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels this way. Celebrities such as Madonna and Jennifer Aniston have been spotted sporting Serpui Marie pieces. What I particularly love though is the Serpui Marie Marrakech Minaudiere! The second I saw it, all I could think was “wow”.
