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.
Ever curious what other bags people are buying? Here are a couple of hot tamales that flew off store shelves this week from department store Neiman Marcus!
Prada Saffiano Lux Tote is the ultimate work tote! Couple years ago when I was on the hunt for a work tote I was bouncing back and forth between purchasing the Chanel Cerf and the classic black Prada Saffiano Lux tote. In the end I went the Chanel Cerf (partly because the Chanel SA was so sweet and helpful and) because I liked the softer, more relaxed style, whereas the Saffiano is all structure. Worth noting, this leather is incredibly durable! It will withstand daily wear. This bag is available in so many different colors, this one pictured here is the Caramel and retails for $1895.
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.
I love crystals, stones and pretty much anything that’s sparkly. If I had it my way everything I own would be adorned in crystals but unfortunately at my age I’d be labeled a weirdo if I did that. It’s not everyday you see a 27 year old women that’s crystallized from head to toe, so I definitely don’t want to be the first. However, I do fall in love with handbags and shoes that have stones on them. Crystals, stones whatever you want to call them tend to make accessories look prettier and that’s why I fell in love with the Prada Saffiano Lux Gem Stone Trim Tote. This bag is drop dead gorgeous and would be a lovely bag to carry around during the upcoming Spring season.
I know I’ve written this before but to refresh everyone’s mind, I’m a huge girly girl. I don’t know why but anything that’s extremely feminine I usually end up loving it. Today I was at the Prabal Gurung for Target sale and one piece I got screams extreme girly girl. It’s a peplum top with colorful flowers all over it. It’s ugly at first sight but when you put it on with a black skirt it’s stunning. I love being a girl, I love pink, I love bows and I love fashion.
I’m currently searching for a new blag, a new black bag to be exact. It’s 2013, and I want to get rid of most of my handbags and start new! A lot of my bags are old and I’m dying to have one classy and gorgeous black bag. I’m not sure what style I want my bag to be but it’s definitely fun to look around and see what bags are out there.
At the moment, I’m severely obsessed with the Prada “Parabole” Spazzolato. I saw a Tory Burch bag a while ago that looked similar to this one but the “Parabole” takes the crown! I love that the bag is incredibly simple. There isn’t much to it and because of that I love it. Bags that are simple always tend to look more clean and just have a pretty look to them overall. I also love that this bag looks professional. It looks like a bag that a professional woman or a woman on a mission would carry.
You guys, Prada is throwing a huge Fall Preview sample sale event going on today and tomorrow on RueLaLa.
Just to give you an idea of the magnitude of this sale.. there are 113 bags at this sale! Seriously. And they’re going fast too so I would go over there as soon as possible if I were you.
Happy sample saling!
Above are my three favorites at the sale: the Prada Saffiano Leather Crossbody $1,199 (reg $1,495), Prada Saffiano Leather Top Handle Bag $1,549 (reg $1,950) and the Prada Saffiano Leather Tote $1,399 (reg $1,730)
For some odd reason, I’m loving anything in the fashion world that’s pink or cobalt! Cobalt is a fun color but Pink is just girly! I’ve always been a girly girl but for a while I was only into black. Pretty much almost everything I own is black or white but pink is my favorite color at the moment.
Now my favorite handbag in the world? That goes to the Hermes “Birkin”. The “Birkin” is the “It” bag to me. It’s classy, fashionable, gorgeous and sophisticated looking. They are very expensive but I know one day I’ll have one, I’m confident in that. The “Birkin” maybe out of my price range but if I had to choose another bag that’s more affordable it would be the Prada “Saffiano” Lux Tote. It has almost the same kind of look as the “Birkin” and is just as beautiful. It’s simple and that’s why I love it.
When it comes to fashion if there are two things that are for certain it’s that, I have always loved Prada and I have a severe obsession with evening clutches. Prada has always been such a classic and timeless brand to me. I only own one Prada bag but believe me, if I could I would have a bunch! As for evening clutches, they scream elegance and sophistication to me. I absolutely love dressing up and nothing finishes an outfit better than a beautiful clutch.
