Wish List: Five Spring Chanel Bags

                                                                            Chanel Flag Bag, $4000

So spring has sprung and I recently came across a few Chanel handbags that were just so cute! Chanel bags can be expensive but they are worth the investment. Yes, some of them are trends of the moment but you’d be surprised how vintage Chanel bags can transcend time. Sequins and plastic are definitely a thing for Spring 2018. But I’m sure these bags will still be fabulous in the future. Check them out below and contact me for more information!

                                                                            Chanel Backpack, $3400
                                                                           Chanel’s Gabrielle Hobo Bag, $5000
                                                                            Chanel Flap Bag, $2600
                                                                        Chanel Classic Handbag, $11400

DezignNation Struts Miami Drive-In Fashion Show

I recently attended the Struts Miami Fashion Show by DezignNation (founded by Aguy Smith) and was completely blown away by Project Runway finalist Laurence Basse’s designs as well as a few other local designers. I had never been to a ‘drive-in’ fashion show but it was actually kind of convenient because it was cool in Florida that night.

I wore my Catherine Malandrino leather pants (similar below), a Club Monaco sweater and my Steve Madden sneaker heels. The show was in a parking garage and featured designs from House of Roxy B., Over a Trillion Served and more. They also had wine and pies from Pink Pie available at the show as well.

NEW COLLECTIONS

Blue and White Striped Mark D. Sikes Dress

When I was in New York in October there were a few warm days and I wore this Mark D. Sikes blue and white striped dress with my new Proenza Schouler PS1 white handbag. Since I’ve moved to Florida, this handbag goes perfectly with many of my bright-colored outfits. And if you’re up north, who says you can’t wear white all year round? If not, check out some of these other colors that the Proenza Schouler PS1 handbags below!

Karen Millen Work Dress

So Thanksgiving may be upon us but today is a work day. Although I blog, I still work as a financial planner and have to dress for the ‘corporate’ office at times. This Karen Millen dress may scream Florida but you can throw a leather jacket on it and rock it for Fall too. I just love the bright orange and black and white palm tree leaves. I paired it with a Khirma Eliazov clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps. I love this look for the office and beyond. Check out more photos below!

Three Hot Pieces on Sale

I scouted a few items on sale that were just so fire they deserved their own post! Starting with this M2Malletier handbag perfect for the holidays and these Charlotte Olympia pink sandals. Lastly, I spotted a Burberry lace skirt that should probably go with just about everything. Happy shopping!

Akira Orange Jumpsuit

Happy Thursday everybody! I’m loving my Akira orange jumpsuit which is actually on sale right now. I wore it out to dinner to Felidia’s restaurant ( you know the famous chef Lidia Bastianich’s restaurant in the city) and had a fabulous Saturday night before I left town. I just love the side ruffles on this jumpsuit, it brings the drama.

I paired it with vintage Christian Louboutin heels and a faux snake skin Guess clutch. Check out the rest of the pictures below!

Tanya Taylor Crop Top and Rag & Bone Jeans

So I’ve made a big move. I’m now living in Florida but while still in New York I got together with Mariya for some shots. The weather was warm (hence the Tanya Taylor crop top that I found on sale). It’s hot in Florida so I can wear this outfit almost all year! 

These Rag & Bone Simone Denim Pants have been put to great use ever since I got them. They’re light and cute. I just love a dark wash. I paired them with my vintage blue suede Giuseppe Zanotti pumps (similar Manolo Blahnik BB pumps here) and my vintage Marc Jacobs blue handbag. Check out the rest of the photos below!

Color in the Winter: Blue Topshop Coat

Well it’s snowing today after a 50 degree temperature yesterday! What a mess this weather is. To beat the winter blues, I like to use a pop of color. Last year, I picked up this blue Topshop coat from Nordstrom (similar blue Harris Wharf London coat here) to give me that boost among the hum drum of black and grey in my closet. It’s not the warmest coat ever but it works. I also wore vintage silver metallic Lanvin sneakers, Zara jeans (similar here) and an Alexander Wang handbag (similar black one here). Check out a few other coats to brighten up your winter wardrobe.
