Tweed Please

Today’s post is a combination of old pieces that I put together to create a new look. These are all classic pieces that you should keep in your wardrobe. A chambray top is something you can wear any season and with any bottom. The camel vest is the perfect layering item to complete all fall and winter outfits, adding style but not bulk. And of course, every girl must own a tweed skirt.

I did receive this vintage Chanel brooch for Christmas that I’m excited to style. Adding it to this outfit, completed the classic and timeless look.

Try creating a new outfit with old pieces this week! This will bring new life to your wardrobe.

Laces and Bows

So many bows, so little time! Bows don’t always have to be girly. I love to mix patterns and textures to make an outfit more interesting: straw, silk, cotton, denim and leather all in one! Try mixing some of your favorite pieces to create a unique look.

Striped in Scottsdale

I told y’all a while back that Henry and I didn’t anticipate the chilly weather in Scottsdale. I intended on wearing this matching set without the denim jacket to show off the top’s detailing. It’s almost time to lose the jacket in Dallas and fully embrace the summer heat. Until then, this denim jacket is my go-to layering piece. This bag is also a great piece for spring as it carries your lipstick, credit cards and phone – all you need for a night out.

Friday Finds

Today I’ve found some of 2017’s hottest handbags below retail price. How you ask? Well, there is a site called The Real Real which sells amazing consignment pieces from vintage to new with tags.

The bags I chose have been lightly used, maybe carried only a handful of times. You can tell they were taken care of by the photos shown on the website.

Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Shoulder Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.15.40 PM

This bag retails around $1700, and you can get it for $1595. I love the stitching of this bag, and the color can be carried all seasons. Don’t be afraid to wear white after Labor Day!

Fendi Kan Whipstitch Shoulder Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.21.57 PM

This bag retails for $2200, but The Real Real is selling it for $1495. Fendi is all the rage right now, and I can’t stay away from the bold colors they are using.

Stella McCartney Falabella Box Bird Shoulder Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.24.33 PM

The bird bag is selling for $1465 in store but $995 on The Real Real. Don’t you love the embroidery?

Chloe Appliqué Drew Crossbody Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.27.27 PM

This Chloe bag has been around for the last couple of seasons, but I love the addition of the flowers. It will pair nicely with winter whites or a chunky burgundy sweater. It retails for $2625 but you can get it for $1276.

Gucci Medium Nymphaea Bamboo Top Handle Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.31.46 PM.png

This classic Gucci bamboo sells for $2390, but you can get it for $1895. This bag may be a favorite of this season, but it will never go out of style. A great investment piece.

Louis Vuitton Epi Twist MM

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.34.49 PM

You may think of the original LV monogram when you think of Louis Vuitton, but darling little crossbody is a great addition to your wardrobe. It is selling for $2600 verse $3550 retail.

Gucci GG Supreme Blooms Small Dionysus Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.36.32 PM

This bag has definitely been the golden ticket of 2017. You really can’t go wrong with Gucci though. Get this bag $355 off retail at $1995.

Chanel Small Carry Chic Flap Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.44.20 PM

Chanel might not be realistic for most of us, but I thought I would include this beauty anyway. It’s $200 off on The Real Real.

Valentino Tricolor Leather Shoulder Bag

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.48.09 PM

I love the color blocking on this bag! Get it for $717, almost $1000 off.

Fendi Embellished Double Micro Baguette

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.50.34 PM

This bag is all yours for $1125. The multicolor medallions keep the bag whimsical while the black backside keeps it transitional.

As you can tell, I love crossbodies. They make a statement while keeping your hands free. I hope you all enjoyed the 2017 handbag roundup!

 

Life in the City

No dress code, no problem… I found great fun deciding what to wear each day to work. With few limitations, I got to be creative and get inspiration from the people with which I worked.

There was no shortage of art and culture in the city. The Met, The MOMA, and The Whitney are all worth a visit.

These shoes were a lifesaver for Margaret and me. I don’t think we could’ve walked the miles we did in our sandals and loafers. We hated ourselves for following the Adidas trend for the first couple of days, but then we got over it.

Well, you know me and murals. Had to find at least one while I was in town.

I’d rather spend less on a pair of trendy denim than splurging, and instead, I invest in the classics.

Side note, I’m obsessed with the cobblestone streets.

I love a two piece set that you can wear together and separate for many different looks.

These trousers have been perfect for all seasons.

The denim mini is back!!! I found this at a Rag and Bone sample sale in the city. Check out racked.com for all the sample sales going on in New York.
