This springy weather has me in the mood to shop. First up, bags. I recently organized my handbags and realized I haven’t bought a new one in quiet a while. I think this is mainly because I tend to purchase classic styles that I never get sick of and colors that never look dated but I’m wanting to break out of my love-of-basics mold. So far the top brands I’ve been admiring are Lizzie Fortunato, 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Loeffler Randall, Steven Alan, Moyna, and Foley + Corinna. They have the perfect edgy mix of pony hair, beads, mixed patterns, or colorfulness that I’m looking for and that I know I won’t grow tired of too quickly. Yay, for warm weather!

Do certain people ever inspire you? I feel inspired every time I hang out with the Fortunato sisters. They are a super sharp duo who built an amazing jewelry line in an such an organic manner and I love how they play off each other’s strengths as they continue to build their brand. If they weren’t so darn sweet, I’d probably hate them. Just kidding — but seriously, I admire them.
