Daily Covet: Chloé vs. Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.

I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.

This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.

This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!

Daily Covet: Chevron Wallet & No. 7 Lip Stain

This weekend, I made a public appearance at Junkstock, a cool event in Omaha that happens twice a year.  It’s where vendors bring all their cool “junk” that’s been repurposed or is waiting to be repurposed for whoever decides it’s a must have.

I had to stop in at Target to pick up an umbrella as I misplaced mine.  As I perused the accessories section, this little turquoise chevron wallet (in store) popped out at me. I actually own a black and white printed version of this wallet already and love it. It’s the perfect size for my smaller evening-time bags, I can take it out of my handbag and carry it on it’s own and it snaps shut tightly to keep all my cards, cash and identification in place. The best part is that it’s literally $12.99 – no one is more surprised than this bag snob!

Another favorite from Target is my No. 7 Sheer Temptation lip stain in “Entice.” I’m not much of a lipstick person on a day-to-day basis.  I much prefer a little stain that will keep my lips pink even after the glossiness wears off.  And it’s minimal gloss at that, so it’s really perfect to keep my pout moist even when I’m just working out or heading to the pool.

Tranparency is Essential

Handbags you can see through aren’t new to the handbag scene by any means.  But the vintage ones and the brand new models alike get better and better all the time.

While this amazing Louis Vuitton shopper is one of my faves (who can resist tortoise chain link handles?), these other amazing bags are absolutely drool-worthy too!

Daily Covet: Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote

Friends and fashionistas, my apologies for the spotty posting over the last year.

A third baby and a new post at a boutique public relations firm has kept me from doing what I really love to do most often, which is BUY STUFF, of course.

But I had to make time for this amazing Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote. I am truly in love with all things “totable” as my young family is constantly on the go.

From business trips to playdates, I am always on the hunt for fabulous totes that make me look like I put some effort (even if I didn’t) into what I am wearing… and toting.  This makes my skinny white jeans, t-shirts and Chuck Cons super chic in an instant!

Daily Covet: In My Clutches

Hello friends!

I have much catching up to do.

I’ve been shopping far more than I’ve been writing, so it’s high time I share.  Don’t you think?

Anyway, I was on the hunt for something.  I can’t even remember what, but came across an entire page of truly delicious clutches at The Outnet.  At first, I was going to post the one I liked best.  But there were so many, I couldn’t decide.

So here’s a gaggle of the gorgeousness I found yesterday.  And yes, I do realize half of them are pink… what can I say?  I’m a girly-girl.

Enjoy!

Daily Covet: iPhone 5 Purse

I may have been out of the fashion loop for some time, but is this as exciting to you as it is to me?

I happened upon an iPhone 5 purse that is so cute and cool — best of all you know your phone will fit in it.  Well, that is, if you have actually upgraded your phone to the iPhone 5.  (I have not, sadly.)

With that said, there are new iPhone 5 models out ( iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S), which is all the more reason to upgrade for great accessories, right?

Check out the inside of this little purse.  The perfect perch for your iPhone 5 and a little pocket for your ID, credit cards and money.  “There’s not enough room for your lipstick,” you say?  An excuse to go out and find that 12-hour red lipstick that means no re-application necessary!
