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!

Eco-friendly nails

Priti NYC is debuting a new collection in some super fashion-forward shades for your nails.

So fashion forward, the likes of Stella McCartney and Thakoon had models don this ultra-hip polish at Fashion Week’s Fall ’12 shows.

These are a few of my faves, but be sure to check out more, along with other eco-conscious cosmetics at Priti NYC.

Get Into the Stripes of Things

There is notshortage of stripes this spring.

You will find them on throw pillows, dresses, wedge sandals, iphone cases and pretty much anything else you can think of.  So because I love them, and because there are so many to be found, here is a little bundling of some stripes I tracked down.  (Complete shopping info via Polyvore.com too.)

Block Heeled Sandals

These block heeled sandals are so groovy 70′s with a modern twist.  And how easy are they to wear with all that heel support!

Here’s a gaggle of my favorite pairs, but if I had to just choose one – it would be the pink and orange Stella McCartney ones.  Be still my heart for $1000+ sandals… to go with all my $1000+ totes!!  Find shopping info on Polyvore.com.

Daily Covet: Anything with Alberta Ferretti’s name on it!

I love Alberta Ferretti and sister brand Philosophy by…  The lines are so feminine and the fabrics are rich.  It’s everything a girl could want in a dress.  (Yes, we’re back to dresses again!)

Here I’ve styled three amazing options: 2 for more formal occasions and 1 “play dress.”  Complete shopping info is on Polyvore.com.

Take a gander at the amazing Deco-style earrings with the lavendar floral number… yum.  My favorite is the green one, how about you?

Daily Covet: Bolder Shorts

It was just shy of 70 degrees here in Middle America yesterday.  That’s truly bizzarre for the second to the last day of January.  And true to form, there was no bigger news than that, which is why the news crews were out in full force yeserday, interviewing every mom and child duo on the playground.  And yes, we got our turn in the spotlight… yours truly, and my handsome half-pints too, got to be on the evening news.  But I digress.

I blame this phenom however, for putting me in the mood to shop shorts.  Most years, I sport my J.Crew, Gap and Banana Republic versions in very few brights, mostly neutrals.  This year, it’d be a shame to let some of the hot colors and modern styles go by the wayside, for my plain old khaki flat fronts.  Let’s take a look at some kickier options:

Nanette Lepore Embellished Silk Shorts, Neiman Marcus $328
