I’ve only been an iPhone owner since December and at first I was looking for the perfect cover. I wanted a cover that was me and if people saw it they would say it was so me. After searching high and low, I found the perfect iPhone 5 case at Henri Bendel. It’s simply a woman walking down 5th Ave in New York holding Henri Bendel shopping bags. I love Henri Bendel and it was definitely the best case for me. Now that I’ve found a case I love, I’ve been on the hunt for a wallet that will hold my iPhone, cash and cards. Just today, I was searching in Nordstrom for one and I didn’t fall in love with any of them. Coincidentally I came home and I fell in love with the Tory Burch “Robinson” Smart Phone Wallet. It’s simple and the color is so eye catching!
Anything by the house of Alexander McQueen is usually unique looking but also fabulous. I do not own anything by Alexander McQueen but I can’t wait till the day I have my very own skull clutch that’s adorned with Swarovski crystals. I consider McQueen pieces to be like that of art. They are very different looking and they do not look like anything else any other designer out there has designed. I guess you could say the Alexander McQueen brand likes to push the limits and I would say they always succeed.
In 2008, I bought myself a Louis Vuitton Multicolor Wallet to go with my Multicolor handbags. It’s still in great shape but I’ve been looking for a gorgeous black wallet to add to my collection. After having a white wallet, I’ve noticed how easy it is to get it dirty. It floats around in your bag all day long that it just gets dirtier and dirtier by the day. I will never buy a white wallet again and now I know black is the way to go. I paid over $700 for the Louis Vuitton wallet so I’m looking for something a little more reasonably priced.
I think we all can agree that I have a severe obsession with anything Rebecca Minkoff designs. She’s one of my favorite handbag designers and anytime I see a new item by her pop up on Shop Bop, I literally drool. Shockingly, I’m currently in love with the “Little Louis” Pouch. I say shockingly, because I think we all know from my previous blog posts that I usually like black handbags with gold hardware. For some odd reason, I’ve been into a lot of beautiful colors lately and I’m not complaining one bit. I’m a huge fan of the “Little Louis” Pouch and I really want it!
While browsing the web looking at handbags (what else, right?) today, I started to notice something odd. There are a lot of perforated handbags floating around right now. Is this a new trend or something? If so, I don’t think I received the memo. I guess when I think about perforated bags, I flash back to Louis Vuitton’s perforated collection from a few years ago. There weren’t too many perforated bags to speak of after that. Now they are suddenly popping up everywhere. What gives? Oh well, I suppose I can give this trend a chance. After all, some of the styles might actually be cute. Just be careful though. I think this is a very tricky trend to pull off. Bright colors or bright white keep this look fresh. I picked out a couple pieces that I like, just so you can see what I’m talking about. Enjoy!
Furla Perforated Brooklyn – $498
You don’t see Furla too much anymore, but this designer really seems to be making a comeback. This shoulder bag is nice. I like how it is slouchy at the top, but it still has a somewhat structured bottom. The tiny perforations are perfect for someone wishing to try this trend without getting their feet too wet. The crisp white is great too, pairing nicely with just about anything.
Because sometimes you really don’t want to carry a full sized continental or a chunky little wallet. I personally love slim card cases for when I’m not wanting to carry my wallet around with me, like when I’m using a beach tote or a petite clutch. Basically anytime that I’m not using a regular day bag. One that caught my eye recently is the Tory Burch Kipp Slim Case. There are alot of card cases out there, some that can look pretty boring, but this one as simple as it may look is very functional (lots of slots) and looks totally amazing – stamped with the Tory Burch signature logo which I absolutely love.
I’ve been doing a lot of promo modeling lately. Anything that will help my move to Los Angeles come quicker, I’m all for it. Well today on my lunch break we ate at a buffet. I’m a vegetarian so I tried to stay as healthy as possible. I had a salad, veggie sandwich, some fruit and then I saw the dessert trays which instantly broke my diet. I love anything mint flavored and I saw this mint green dessert that had oreo’s on top. It kind of looked like a mini grasshopper pie so I knew I had to try it. It was amazing and it was then that I realized how pretty the color “mint” is. How funny, when I get home to write a blog for you fashion lovers that I see the Rag & Bone “Allen” Wallet. In the description it’s labeled the color “Canton”, let’s be honest it looks like “mint”!
While doing my yearly holiday shopping I came across the Diane von Furstenberg “Zip Around Python Wallet” and instantly fell in love.
The exterior is made of python-embossed cowhide leather, that’s right, no adorable little snakes were hurt in the process. But what really first caught my eye is the gorgeous turquoise green color called “Reef” – it’s the same color as my Essie “Turquoise & Caicos” manicure. The color is so pretty!
Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories. I literally buy a new pair whenever I can. To me, a woman can never have enough high heels and sunglasses. Both are fabulous accessories that can make any out a little more glam. Plus, both high heels and sunglasses come in so many different colors and styles it’s hard not to keep buying them! Granted I don’t have nearly as many sunglasses as I do high heels but I sure do love them!
