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.


A Summer Uniform


There’s no doubt about it – white is the color of my Summer uniform. A couple of years ago, I invested in a white Zimmerman jumpsuit (which I adore), so I figured it was about time for a variation. 


This C/MEO jumpsuit has a gauzy light feel with an oversized buckle for a touch of drama. The extra wide legs make it super comfortable, while the plunging neckline brings the sexy factor.  For an evening out in Chattanooga, I rocked this look with a summery circle bag. The white faux leather details, not to mention the price really sold me! I finished my look with my new gold earrings by Kate Spade for some extra glamour. Lastly, my go-to nude sandals finished the look. Be prepared to see me rock more white (including this jumpsuit) all summer long! After all…white is my uniform!
