I’m a total fashion lover and if I had a bag of choice to use I would always pick a clutch. Clutches are so simple, easy and prevent me from carrying around a ton of junk. They definitely keep me more organized and make my life a whole lot easier. At the moment I only own three clutches but I wouldn’t mind owning more! It’s hard to find beautiful clutches but I have to admit that the Marc by Marc Jacobs Top Chicret Clutch is stunning! I absolutely love that it’s black and white and it gives off a sense of sophistication. This is the type of clutch you could use all year long because black and white clothes are now in fashion to be worn during any season!
Tis’ the season to carry white handbags and I’ve been carrying my Louis Vuitton Multicolor Speedy non-stop this Spring. White handbags are always pretty too own but I won’t lie you have to watch them non-stop and be extra careful with them. They can get dirty pretty easily but take a wet towel to clean them and your good to go. My favorite white bag at the moment is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Clear ‘Clearly’ PVC Bag.
The bag is extremely sophisticated and classy which is definitely my style. I’ve never really been into handbags that are see through. In this economy it’s probably not a good idea to have the things in your purse exposed. However, I love this bag and I think it’s super cute. I would just be extra careful about what is seen in the bag. Obviously you would never want your money or any credit cards floating around the bag. I think if you keep everything concealed in the bag you’re good to go!
At the moment, I’m into lots of pretty colors especially pastels. May I add that this is also incredibly odd because for at least for 3 years I was a black and white girl.
I kid you not 90% of my closet was black and white. I wasn’t morbid by any means but I just thought, and still do, black and white look so classy together. The colors really give an eye catching and sexy look when worn right and I love them.
However, recently I’ve been into color and I would say my closet looks like a rainbow right now. It’s full of bright and beautiful colors and I actually really like it that way. Let’s just see how long it lasts.
Sometimes though, I still like to keep it simple with a neutral look. Black and white are always a must and maybe a little bit of brown and tan. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Natural Distressed Canvas Tote is the perfect bag to pair up with an outfit that’s mostly neutral colors.
This bag is so classy and would look great when you are going for more of a sophisticated look. I love the way the bag closes and the mixture of the colors on bag is beautiful! Marc Jacobs always gives us stunning bags and this one is of no exception. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I wouldn’t mind owning this bag one bit!
I feel like I am going crazy. Well, just a little bit. I keep seeing transparent handbags popping up in random places. Forgive me if I am wrong here, but I thought transparent handbags were dead. I mean, they were never really that popular to begin with. They were a very brief trend, I guess you could say. So I don’t think anyone can really blame me for being surprised. The latest transparent handbag to cross my path is pictured here. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Clearly Bag!

I’m a sucker for fashionable tech accessories. Just today, a co-worker of mine couldn’t believe I had a Henri Bendel iPhone 5 case. I see tech accessories just like anything stylish that we would put on our bodies or carry around. We always tend to dress up our technology devices in things that are “so us” or a reflection of who we are. For instance, all my tech accessories are either designer or pink because that’s me. With that said, I fell in love with the Marc by Marc Jacobs Neoprene Tootsie Flower Laptop Case.
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.

Over at Shopbop (dot com), we’ve selected some of the loveliest accessories for your V-Day night out. They’re cute and affordable!
A lot of things come to mind when I think of Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags. They are fun, unique, and even a little bit quirky at times. That is what I love about Marc Jacobs though. The handbags in his diffusion line are never boring. But do you know what is sort of funny? That means that anything sophisticated-looking that comes from this line is a little more unusual. Well I stumbled across an “unusual” Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag today. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Thunderdome Satchel!
