Top Evening Bags

top-evening-bags
 

Let’s talk about evening bags. In the past year, I’ve been to a couple of black tie events where I noticed ladies do not have the appropriate bag. Just because a bag is small, does not mean it is formal! I saw day-time crossbodies with gowns, and purses that are perfect for brunch…but maybe not your best friend’s wedding. Never fear…I’ve rounded up some of my favorite picks that ARE appropriate for your next fancy event!

 

1. Sole Society – Sometimes a simple black look needs a pop of color. Plus, rainbow bags are totally in!

 

2. Lele Sadoughi – Pretty in pearl, this Lele Sadoughi can be worn over the shoulder or as a clutch!

 

3. Gucci – A more casual-looking clutch, the gorgeous color of the leather, combined with Gucci’s signature G’s would be gorgeous with a dressy jumpsuit or retro-inspired look.

 

4. Edie Parker – We can’t have an evening bag roundup without including the queen Edie Parker. Her bags are usually pretty pricey, so this one is a steal! I also love bags with fun sayings, like this one! OR, if you want to splurge get one custom made on her website.

 

5. Saint Laurent – I love a great metallic evening bag because there is so much flexibility for outfits. This Saint Laurent can be worn time and time again no matter the color of your look!

 

6. Gucci – A satin Gucci shoulder bag that’s equally appropriate to swear with a cocktail dress, as it is to wear with a collared shirt and jeans. I also love the clutch version in velvet.

Valentine’s Day 2019 Lust List

Well, it’s that time again. The holiday of love is upon us! This year, I’m going with the theme of self-love! That could mean devoting more time to self-care, buying yourself with the item you’ve been lusting after (I just did and it’s coming to the blog soon), or simply doing something that makes yourself smile! Here are some of my top picks to treat yourself this V-day! Chocolates and flowers sold separately.

 

1. Burberry – A pretty accessory to make an outfit feel brand new! A part of Ricardo Tisci’s revamp of Burberry, this new monogram print was revealed in the Fall of 2018. I love the all-caramel color combination that will go beautifully with other neutral shades!

 

2. Natori – My friends recently asked where I get my everyday underwear and I was so excited to share this pair. I feel like we’re at the age where Victoria’s Secret isn’t desirable anymore…plus who can handle those lines and the crowds in the mall? No thanks! Hanky Panky is a good go-to, but I recently found the Natori Bliss Perfection thong and I’m never turning back.  They are soft, stretchy, seem adult but not dowdy. I can go on and on. I also love that the “nude” comes in a variety of inclusive shades.

 

3. Maison Louis Marie – I recently smelled this oil on my friend Kelley and it was absolutely intoxicating. The scent is like Le Labo’s sandalwood fragrance, but a little bit more delicate. AND a fraction of the price. I roll this on my wrists and neck before heading out.. and sometimes after my evening shower!

 

4. Bag All – For me, part of self-care means staying organized. I will absolutely not let my anxiety get the best of me, even when I travel! I love these bags because they can hold everything your little heart desires. I’m talking lingerie, headphones, dirty laundry, shoes…you name it. Plus, you can personalize them to fit your needs or give as an adorable gift!

 

5. BaubleBar – Because we all love a little sparkle every now and then! I’m obsessed with these chunky and colorful rings. I can’t decide between the rainbow and the peach, but I feel like I’ll have to snag one of these soon.

 

6. Gucci – For me, Wearing heels every day to work is getting old very fast! On days I want to show my feet some love, I slip them into some comfy, yet stylish loafers. Your feet will thank you, but you’ll still look put together enough to hit the board room. On off days, slip them on with a pair of ripped jeans and a cashmere sweater. I have the black, but I’m currently lusting after the pale pink. They will be perfect for Spring. And in case you saw my Instagram and love the gold/mink pair I shared, I’ve linked those too!

Winter 2019 Lust List

Well, we’re officially smack dab in the middle of Winter, and my closet has taken notice. The grey, dreary weather has me wanting to throw on cozy sweaters and comfortable flats for easy, no-fuss work looks. In reality, I just want to stay curled up at home with a good book. Getting primped or staying warm at home? Either way, this Winter lust list has you covered:

 

 1. Ads of the 90’s book: As a mad-woman by day, old ads have always caught my attention. But anyone can appreciate some of these iconic ads of the ’90s, many featuring our favorite Supermodels! This book will liven up any coffee table and would be a delight to flip through on days cozied up at home.

 

2. Celine Oversized Butterfly Sunglasses: When you don’t want to get all dolled up, but still want to look put together, oversized sunglasses are an easy way to look glam!

3. Mateo Mini Satchel: The cutest cross-body purse that fits just the right amount when you want to grab and go! Plus it’s on sale!

 

4. Byredo Perfume: A fresh scent for the new year, Byredo’s Gypsy Water is a favorite amongst fans of the brand. I’m in love with the Suede hand wash and lotion, but I think it’s time to grab a perfume as well!

 

5. Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer: Speaking of getting all dolled up, I’ve been lusting after this Dyson hair dryer for ages. With a quiet and light-weight design, this dryer is meant to get your hair extra smooth and reduce frizz. I borrowed my BFF Rachel’s once and was very impressed! As someone who styles my hair often, this investment seems worth it!

 

6. Dior Ballerina Flats: A pretty combination of durable canvas and embroidered ribbon, these flats are a dressy option for days when you can’t imagine throwing on heels!

 

7. Rag & Bone Cashmere Sweater: Super soft and super stylish, I love this sweater in the powdery white, or black with a sporty, thin stripe at the bottom.
