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!

Besides the above here are a few more items I’ve saved online & waiting for a sale (shh!):
Flask Bangles by Cynthia Rowley
It’s a bracelet, it’s a flask — no, it’s SUPER BRACELET! I’ve always been a believer of killing two birds with one stone or being able to multitask so when Cynthia Rowley released her flask bangles, I definitely swooned over her design. Since, I’ve always wanted a flask and this one just seems way more up my alley — if I had it my way, I’d be opening up one of these bangles for Christmas.
Street Style, Sort Of
It’s not everyday you see this many Chanel bags on the side of the street being delivered. It brightened my day for a second — until I realized none of these were mine.
Chanel = ultimate holiday hookup.
I’m completely enamored with these silver Loeffler Randall oxfords but understandably they can be a bit pricey for most with a price tag of 350 dollars — however, there are great alternatives out there like these silver oxfords I found on Tobi which recently went on sale for 15 bucks! This is is more of a splurge versus steal situation rather than save.
Check out Quincy’s blog post where I show how you can style and wear one dress five different ways. A simple sheath dress is incredibly versitile as long as you know how to rock it!
Get this same sheath dress before its too late. We are selling out and aren’t going to make more in this color! Check it out here.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wishing summer away so quickly but with the recent rainy weather and chill in the air, I’ve been thinking of fall. Actually, I’ve been thinking of ankle boots.
One thing I do before any season change is save images, tear sheets, and links to things I want to buy. Yes, I’m organized but in a dangerous, shopaholic sort of way. Here are a few brands I swoon over in varying price ranges that make a mean boot:
