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: 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!

Christmas Cocktail Party

This is my favorite holiday get-up!  Fondly enough, it was my husbands too.

He said he thought if you were wearing this dress, you’d look like you were an “interesting” person.  I think he meant that in a good way…

This could definitely take you to your law firm’s Christmas party at the country club.  The rich red-ISH, mixed with gold Asian-inspired jewelry and a fun pop of green satin is sooo holiday ready.  Aaaand green is a Chinese symbol of health, prosperity and harmony… good for ringing in a New Year too!

And let’s be honest who could resist those amazing Gucci ankle straps with the gold piping?  Christmas Cocktail Party

Love it or Hate it?

Faux Croc Skull Knuckle Clutch By In's, ahalife.com $115

McQueen had been doing this kind of design for years.  It’s been walking the red carpets and showing up in the “clutches” of the overexposed, like Kim Kardashian.

My first thought was, what?  Yuck!  But then I took a closer look, and I think I’m actually liking it.  An evening bag, with an edge.  The juxtaposition of classic crocodile (albeit faux) and rocker chic skulls made into a convenient handle, is kind of making this usually preppy girl want to “rock it.”

While it’s probably not perfect for your law firm’s Christmas luncheon.  It is perfect for a night out with your friends, or for the grand opening bash of a swanky and dark venue with a hip vibe.  Just make sure you have vampy dark nails!

Let me know how you’d rock it!
