Do you ever regret selling a handbag that you think at the time you’re completely over with? One bag that I regret parting with a couple years ago was the Givenchy Nightingale. The size was perfect for me and I loved the double strap options (perfect for a city girl). Also the color was so perfect for an everyday spring to summer bag. It was a light creamy beige, which is a few shades lighter than this ‘Linen’ color pictured above. So why did I decide to put it up on eBay? It was a magnet for color-transfer! Walking around town for just 30 minutes and the whole side would be tinted blue from my denims. Such a nightmare. Today if I still had that bag I would probably never wear it with jeans but rather pair it with a summer dress or lighter denims.
When it comes to nylon totes, I admit I’m not the biggest fan of the look. To me a nylon bag is only meant for two occasions – as a travel bag or market tote.
This tote is pretty basic in design as it should be for a travel tote. The body of the bag and handles are made of nylon (super light weight!) and easily fold up for storage in your day bag. Also comes with a wristlet pouch for the tote to be stored in when not in use. I like this tote. It’s simple and in classic jet black. Perfect for an extra travel bag. I always find that I need one when coming back from vacation and my suitcase is 1 or 2 pounds over the limit.
Gorgeous supermodel Miranda Kerr pictured here in the latest Spring 2013 online Mango catalog, looking summer ready rocking the Crusaita Blouse. Personally I’m obsessed with it. Have you guys been noticing all the black and white popping up on store shelves? It’s such a huge trend right now!
Last month while on a girls weekend retreat one of my friends introduced to me dry shampoo. Of course I’ve heard of it before but never picked up a bottle for myself to try. The product she uses and “swears by” is Batiste Dry Shampoo. I tried it, and I fell in love with it! So much so that as soon as I got home I went straight to Ulta and picked up a couple bottles. But just out of curiosity I also grabbed a couple other brands to try out – Tresemme and Nexxus. With the other brands my hair turned out feeling greasy and weighed down, unlike Batiste where my hair ended up feeling lightweight and refreshed.
Shoes tip dipped seems to be the hottest shoe trend of the season! Totally lovin this look.
Pictured here are a couple of my favorite picks from this trend:
Black and white fashion will always be a favorite of mine. The colors look incredibly classy but yet sharp together. Not many colors look good combined together but black and white always take the crown. These colors also look amazing on unique fashion pieces. Black and white are show stopping colors that when you put them on pieces that are kind of out there, they get even more attention. A perfect example of this is the Kelly Wearstler Shark Tooth Skirt. This is by far the coolest skirt I’ve seen in a while and I love the futuristic vibe to it. Architectural style clothing always tends to look artsy but yet futuristic and I love it!
I’m usually not a fan when fashion designers combine many trends into one creation, but these Haircalf Stud Kye Flats are kindof a big deal. I love the combo of leopard-print haircalf and studs. Edgy chic!
