As you guys have probably seen, I’ve become obsessed with Zimmermann and the brand’s feminine and flattering dresses!
When I saw this ethereal mint green number, I couldn’t help but get it! This collection was inspired by the zodiac, and while I originally tried my own sign (Leo), I felt this Capricorn style was more my speed. First, the colors are so dreamy, combined with the airy chiffon and blousy silhouette, it’s a no-brainer. I’m wearing this on warmer winter days and will probably save it for a special occasion such as Elle’s birthday. The pastels just speak to me at a time when we’re generally bombarded by jewel tones in the holiday season. To finish off my look, I opted for simple gold-heeled sandals and jewelry. The best part? This dress will totally still work in Spring and Summer. See you dolls at the next garden party!
You dolls know that I love my handbags! AND I absolutely love sharing my opinions on bags and my new purchases with you all. Well after having a baby, I really wanted a new bag that fit my new mom lifestyle. Of course, it still had to be stylish, classic, and luxurious! To fulfill my need, I looked no further than Chanel. The classic flap is the ultimate bag – proven by the exorbitant prices that increase up to a couple of times a year. I love the classic flap because you can throw it over your shoulder or crossbody, keeping you hands free. As a new mom, I’m juggling car seats, a diaper bag, and my little princess herself. The other big factor for me was size. While I have some crossbody bags already, none of them are large enough to hold all of my essentials. They’re more evening or occasion bags that require some curation of all my goodies. With the need for hand sanitizers, sunglasses, lipstick, wallet and phone, I needed something bigger to hold everything. I don’t want to feel like I’m restricted from bringing along my necessities in favor of being hands free. With this size Chanel, affectionately nicknamed the “Jumbo” – it combines the best of both worlds. Now let’s talk about the details of the bag. This is a double flap which has an interior flap and zipper under the visible interior. Rumors say that Coco Chanel hid her love letters in that zippered pocket, so I keep one from Jason in there as a romantic homage to Coco. For this size, I also opted for caviar – a pebbled and more durable leather. I don’t have the luxury of being so precious with my bags anymore, and needed something that can stand the test of time. Lastly, I’m obsessed with the color – a blackish charcoal with champagne hardware. The color sometimes looks black, sometimes looks grey, and is beautifully unique. I also think the hardware color (which is a light gold) goes with both silver or gold accessories. It’s stunning! So far this bag has become one of my favorites…but shhh! Don’t tell all of my other bags that!
Regardless of season, it seems like my uniform is a white dress. Mini, midi, or maxi – I don’t discriminate! And one dress that took my breath away when I saw it, was this Aje pleated and tiered maxi dress with puff sleeves. The off-the-shoulder neckline makes it fun and flirty, but the length gives me the coverage and a whimsical feeling. This particular dress is an older style from Aje, but it was too beautiful not to share. Besides the full Aje collection of dresses is breathtaking. I highly recommend a visit to their site. I might just have another Aje stunner I’m excited to share soon! Stay tuned!
