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

Gucci Mystic Cat T-Shirt

While some are dealing with snow, I’ve been enjoying sunny South Florida. While there is definitely not as much to do as New York (and I definitely miss the city sometimes), I welcome the change of pace. Palm Beach is really beautiful and there’s nothing like a good t-shirt and jeans combo when to hang around town. I saw this Gucci Mystic Cat T-shirt on Farfetch and the sequined cat just got me. I absolutely love this shirt and they go great with my Zara ripped jeans (similar here) and blue Marc Jacobs handbag. The shirt is actually sold out but there’s several other cute ones.

    

I also wore this interlaced Gucci ring that I adore as well- a pineapple, a monkey and an emerald. Check out photos of the ring and more below and if you’re up north, consider a trip to sunny Florida for a break!

Sara Battaglia Spring 2018 Sequined Skirt

So sequins have been in for a while now (hello Ashish) and they’re definitely big for this spring. Sequins can be dressed up or down depending on what you pair them with. This Sara Battaglia skirt caught my eye. I’m just a sucker for sequins. Throw it on with a sweatshirt or t-shirt and some sneakers like the photo above and boom, you have a casual look with some major pizzaz. If you love it like I do, hurry up because there’s only a few left!

The Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2018 show featured models decked out with designs echoing all parts of the world. Head wraps, sequins and detailed beading made its way down the runway in what felt like a trip around the globe. It was truly an eclectic mix of cultural influences. Just beautiful. Check out more of the show below!

Sequins on the Runway for NYFW F/W 17

Nicole Miller

So I just love sequins. As a big Ashish fan, I’d find any excuse to wear sequins and would wear it for just about anything. It’s a great way to brighten up an otherwise dull winter wardrobe and that’s just what designers had in mind for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017Milly, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and more all featured a sequined item or two in their fall/winter collections. I just love these pieces.

Cuban Dream: Chanel Cruise 2016/17

160504155711-chanel-cuba-new-5-super-169Palm Trees. Sequins. Cigars. Old Cars. It was a Cuban dream at the Chanel Cruise 2016/17 Fashion Show yesterday. Chanel nailed their fashion show by incorporating all things that come to mind when thinking about Cuba but maintained their backbone. There was tweed and beautiful materials of course, but 1950s cars and cigar box handbags.

CHANEL_Cruise_Cuba_Show-54CHANEL_Cruise_Cuba_Show-68I loved it! In Florida, it’s basically resort wear all year long and this show definitely gave me some great inspiration. I definitely want to get over to Cuba one of these days. By the way, if you are in Cuba Karl Lagerfeld is showing more than 200 of his photographs at Factoria Habana until May 12th.
