Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

From On March 7, 2010


Bucket bags are in for spring! High end, low end and everything in between. I can’t decide on which one I want or if I will get one at all. Drawstrings, studs, or fringe; there is so many to choose from. The first is the Alexander Wang Diego bucket bag from Oaknyc.com. The texture of this bag is stunning and the studs give it even more character. It looks great. The second is the Suede Stud Pouch Bag from Topshop. I like the metal disc and tassle detailing. The third is the Goa Drawstring Bag from Banana Republic. Loving the navy, another hot color for spring! The last one is the Charlie My Love Breezy Mini Bag from Shopbop. The tie-dye tassles are so unique. If I had to choose between the four it would definitely be between this one and Alexander Wang’s.

I really wanted to add the new Marc Jacobs bucket bag to the collage, but I haven’t seen it any where other than in magazines. I’ll post a pic on the Facebook Fan Page once I find it on the net.

Black & Putty

BCBG Max Azria top, H&M skirt, Express tights, Prada platforms


I’ve been dying to wear my Prada platforms and the other day I FINALLY wore them! They have to be one of the best birthday gifts I’ve given to myself. It’s not everyday that I wear heels to work, so as a result I had to take advantage of the moment. Afterall, I am on my feet for 8+ hours a day, I’d never make it. I wasn’t sure about the top I was wearing until I belted it with a thin studded belt. It pulled the shirt up just enough so it wouldn’t look like I was swimming in it. As you have probably noticed, I love oversized tops, so I guess either way it would have worked out. The H&M skirt was such a good deal that I ended up buying two in different colors. Skirts are staples in my wardrobe all year around. Especially minis these days. I enjoy bearing my legs. I had really felt like wearing all black but wanted a stand-out shoe. I don’t really invest in bright colored shoes, so I ended up going with the putty-colored Prada’s. I had been talking about them long enough. There was no better time to unveil them.

And a special thanks to Macee for taking the pictures for me 😉

A Fashion Soiree

From On March 2, 2010

DSCN0250
This past Sunday I went to the Style List Fashion Soiree/Mannequin Fashion Show at LUX Lounge in Baltimore. It was my first time going, but I must say that it was nice. White couches, tables, great lighting and the dj was great. There was even food available which is always a good thing. Especially if you didn’t get a chance to eat before you left (like myself) or if you plan on being out until early morning (like myself, again). The fashion show, hosted by Teronce Styyles, didn’t start until after 10pm, but when it did it was intriguing.

Collections from Will C Style, 7 Deadly Sins, Quest Collection, Kas Collection Inc., Emore’J Couture, Renee France Designs and Madison Walker were shown. There was a lot of military & uniform-inspired looks. I saw everything from swimwear to couture. I didn’t take too many pictures, but I did manage to get some of the Emore’J Couture collection.

Bentley & Me

From On February 28, 2010

DSCN0226Ok everyone, meet Bentley! The newest addition to our family. He is a 10 week old Yorkie that is so much like a small child. He gets into EVERYTHING and is very adorable. He’s just learned or I guess I should say has grown enough to go up and down the steps. So now we are really in trouble. His short attention span is pretty entertaining. I sit and watch him often. He thinks he’s a big dog and tries to keep up with the others we have even though they are about three times his size. You’ll meet them later 🙂 For now, here’s more pics of Bentley.

I can’t believe it’s the last day in February 2010 and thus the last post of the month. Time is flying! I’ve got a lot coming up for March: many more spring trends, photos of me in various places and anything else that sparks my interest. More puppies, perhaps? I guess you will just have to check back and find out for yourselves!

She <3's Antik Batik

Bongo $210 Net-a-Porter

Anyone who knows Antik Batik knows they make some ridiculously beautiful sandals. Last year I purchased their Langoa sandals and they are one of my favorites that I own. I came across this year’s version, the Bongo sandal, and was ecstatic! I automatically knew I’d own them before the warmer seasons rolled around.

The detailing on these leather sandals makes you wonder how much time was spent sewing the gold-toned sequins and beads on by hand. Definitely a great way to update your basic gladiator sandal. The two ankle straps and closed heel make them that much more charming. I guess all this snow surrounding me is causing me to be very excited about spring. I’m loving them and plan on purchasing them for sure!
