A Feature on *Refinery29*

From On December 29, 2011

It was only a little while ago that I was approached by Refinery29. They wanted to interview me about my Love,Cortnie clutches. Pretty cool, huh? Well that article hit the site yesterday and I just wanted to share with anyone that may not have seen it. Find out how I got started, what to look forward to in my Etsy shop for Spring and who, if given the chance, I would love to do a design collaboration with.

Check it out here!

And a big THANK YOU to Colleen and Holly over at Refinery29 for their interest in my bags and wanting to share them with others! I’m so overwhelmed with the support I’ve received (shout-out to my CapFABBers!). It means a lot and I truly appreciate it 🙂

Wooly Hearted

From On December 27, 2011

I remember when I first spotted this sweater on a blog. I fell in love immediately, but was so disappointed to read that it was sold out online. Then I saw pictures of Michelle Obama wearing and completely understood why it was sold out. I thought all hope was lost until I walked into my local J.Crew store to see it available (in limited sizes) and in all three colors. While the other two colors (navy w/green heart, red w/pink heart) were cute, it only made sense for me to go with the neutral and black colored sweater. SOLD!

Rocking my ‘Glittering Gold’ sequin clutch. Make sure to become a fan of the new Love,Cortnie Facebook page!

What I wore:
J.Crew sweater and pants, Gap flats (similar style here), Love,Cortnie ‘Glittering Gold’ clutch, Forever 21 specs


Gothical Plum

From On December 23, 2011

I actually thought this skirt was hideous when I first saw it. Boy, am I glad I changed my mind. It’s so dramatic and the deep purple goes so well with it. Pulled the two pieces together with a belt, added a fringe necklace and the look wouldn’t be complete without one of my Love,Cortnie bags. Speaking of bags, don’t forget to become a fan of the new Love,Cortnie Facebook page!

What I wore:
Top from Nordstrom, BCBG Max Azria maxi skirt and belt, Madewell necklace, Love,Cortnie ‘Elizabeth’ clutch, Vince Camuto booties

Make sure to check out the Love,Cortnie Mentions tab at the top of the page! There you can see how a number people have worn their Love,Cortnie clutches. If you own one of the clutches and the link is not already on the list just shoot me an email!



New To My Love,Cortnie Etsy Shop!

From On December 18, 2011

Introducing the new and super-oversized ‘Royal Vintage’ clutch! Almost twice the size of one of my normal bags, it’s a pretty big one. There are only a total of three available. It’s named Royal Vintage because of the royal blue color that’s prominent throughout the bag and is also the color of the lining on the inside. Although it’s not vintage, I love its dated look.

Now the bag on the bottom has been a work in progress! I’m so glad to finally show you guys what I’ve been working on. Deep hunter green leather with blue and sea green color-blocked strips. The lining is absolutely gorgeous. A floral print with the same matching colors. Not to mention there’s a double pocket on the inside! I’m in love with this bag and I hope that you guys will be too.

Shop them at LOVECORTNIE.ETSY.com! (the leather one will be available by noon on 12/18. Also available in limited quantities so act fast!)

Oh yea! I’ve got a new Facebook Fan page for my bags! Become a fan (HERE) to stay updated on promotions, features, giveaways and new additions to the shop!


A Blogger’s Night Out Event

From On December 15, 2011

Had a ball with some blogger friends at the Blogger’s Night Out event at Bloomingdale’s last night. Also met some new faces which is always a pleasure. Lots of photos being taken, cute little finger foods and lots of fashion-talking is to be expected. I wore these amazing pleated (and glittery) H&M shorts. I saw them in the store and chose to build my entire outfit around this one piece. Paired them with a silky top from Urban Outfitters, BCBG Max Azria tights, jewelry from J.Crew and Nine West colored-suede heels. Definitely a good time as usual.

*Sorry for the crappy photos in advance*
