Clutch Me Closer

19 Jun

It’s happening people and thank goodness because I am getting sick of some of the carryalls that were totally unattractive to begin with! Clutches and mini pochettes are everywhere and I freaking love it. Time to dust off some old babies that have been hiding in my closet for a while or only make appearances on the odd night out. I guess this also means minimizing all the shit we carry around, well good riddance. Have you ever gone out without a giant handbag? It’s quite liberating actually. So feast your eyes on some of these gorgeous clutches and invest in a few key pieces for fall!

xoxo

One of my favorite new pieces is this AMAZEBALLS Charlotte Olympia plexiglass clutch with interchangeable pochettes to put inside. It’s like 10 little bags in one. Loves it. Photo found HERE.

I die a little bit inside everytime I see this amazing clutch from Alexander McQueen. I want you talon, fang, python clutch. Where can I find you? Photo found HERE.

The always genius Christian Louboutin designed this little pill clutch for his 20th anniversary collection and I am unhealthily obsessed with it. Only problem? It’s 7K. A little ridiculous. This purse is oh so fitting for my life though. I would much rather buy a pair of Louboutins than take some Prozac, wouldn’t you? Red soles are definitely my medicine! Photo found HERE.

Let’s not forget the always classic, will never go out of style, mini 2.55. I have this little squirt in red and I love the crap out of it. You would be surprised how much fits into it and how it goes with literally everything you own. I am planning to add one in black to my collection soon! Photo found HERE.

The Hermés Medor clutch is to die for. There are no other words. Photo found HERE.

The Proenza Schouler PS1 has always been a favorite of mine. I still don’t have one because I wanted to get the large PS1 first but soon my friends, soon… I’m thinking one in black on black too since it will go with everything. Either that or one in neon yellow…. thoughts? Photo found HERE.

The first time I saw the Givenchy Pandora bag my initial reaction was hell to no. But it has grown on my quite a bit now and I really kind of love it. Especially the mini. So perfect. Photo found HERE.

Alas we come to the Celine trio. I worked for Celine for a year or so while living in London when it was still in need of a good facelift… Well here you have it. While I am not a huge fan of their other bags I have always adored their ready to wear and am newly obsessed with a certain Audrey, and this little number. Super practical, and minimalist- I totally love it- especially in yellow. Photo found HERE. PS) How amazing is this girl’s outfit?!

3. Christian Louboutin Bold Shoulder Bag. Ok, it doesn’t necessarily have to be this one (although it is TO DIE FOR) but I am currently eying a few of Mr. Louboutin’s fabulous bold shoulder bags. What a good fuck!ng idea. Obsessed.  Decisions, decisions…

4. Sass and bid One by One sequin leggings. I am obsessed with anything that sparkles and I’m obsessed with Sass and Bide so that = me needing these leggings ASAP. So perfect for summer nights out!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I need to catch my breath for a second. I. Want. These. So. Freaking. Bad.

Take a minute to basque in the glory of another Christian Louboutin masterpiece- The Mexibead. I can’t even begin to put into words how much I want these shoes. They are seriously EVERYTHING. Why do they have to be $2,700 ?!?! I love you Mr. Louboutin but even I cannot justify spending that much on shoes… :/ But, you know, if anyone wanted to buy them for me… Wink, wink, nudge, nudge… Haha.

But seriously, if you want me to hate you be super ridiculously jealous of you and you happen to have 3K lying around to spend on a pair of shoes you can get them HERE

Holy Sweet Flower Child I am in LOVE

8 May

Thanks to Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller aka my favorite blog EVER (Go check it out. Now. Seriously) and all of her Coachella Pics I have rekindled my love of turbans and headbands (not that I ever stopped loving them just stopped sporting them as much– but that’s all about to change).

Cult Gaia and their amazing flower wreathes and “turbands” have made me one happy girl. I just ordered a few and I know I am going to be sporting them all summer long and I highly suggest you visit their website and invest in a few pieces!

Glitter-Patter Goes My Heart

4 May

Speaking of being a girly girl- I freaking love glitter! Be mindful not to overdo it though, a little accessory here or there or some fine details is all you need.

A lot of these things would also be such fun DIY projects! And since crafting is one of my favorite things to do- I put up some links for you all to try it yourselves so keep scrolling for inspiration and add some sparkle to your step!

xoxo

PS) All of the greatest glitter pieces I own are Miu Miu. They seriously have it down. I have expressed my love of Miu Miu before but seriously you guys, it is AMAZING. Most of the looks below are Miu Miu as well so I really suggest running, not walking, to your closest Miu Miu boutique or retailer and investing in some of their gorgeous pieces.

The glitter collar above would be such a fun and easy DIY! Check it out HERE. Also check out THIS AWESOME BLOG for more instructions on the DIY glitter peter pan collar. I want to make one!!

Photo found HERE. This could be another fun DIY project!

Who does love some glittery nails!?

Some glittery eyeshadow for a night out! Just an FYI- Urban Decay makes the BEST glitter eyeshadow. Midnight Cowboy Rides again is my personal favorite!

I need some of these glitter tights in my life!

And last but not least- glitter clutches are such a staple! Fun for both day and evening use.

Marni x H&M

9 Mar

Did anyone manage to get their hands on some of the Marni for H&M collection that hit stores today? I am guessing not as the entire collection sold out in minutes nation wide. Who the heck wants to get up at 6 AM to stand in line outside of a store anyway!? If I didn’t do it for the iPad2 I sure as hell am not doing it for some clothes when I can easily find something similar if I am dying to have it.

Although the Marni for H&M collection is super dreamy and I have always been a huge fan of Marni, I am a little upset at how perverted these affordable designer collections have become. There are so many greedy people out there! I mean there are literally people that will go into the store, buy everything off the rack just to turn around and sell it on eBay for three times the price. Gross. Infact, I had a personal experience with this exact situation when going to Target to purchase a Missoni cardigan that I had seen in the adds. Well, they had the cardigan, but some fat digesting lady in some cheap jeggings loaded her whole cart full of the ENTIRE COLLECTION. I walked up to her and asked her if I could have one of the blue cardigans explaining I had driven thirty minutes just to buy it and she had eight in her cart. She laughed at me and replied, “You can buy it from me on eBay.” It took all of the self restraint I had not to hit her over her home died peroxide blonde head with my YSL. Yuck. Gross. Greedy. Tacky. Disgusting. Trailer Trash.

Anyway… I think it’s amazing that designers put out these collections so that people who cannot normally afford them have a chance to own something special BUT I do think stores need to start creating buying limits. Do they not realize that these people are turning around and selling this stuff and making a profit off them?!

OK. I am done with my rant. For now. On a more positive note- take a look at some of my favorite looks from the collection… The jewelry is gorgeous!
