Dose of Sparkle

From On January 2, 2012

First and foremost, HaPpY NeW YeAr!

I thought it was extremely appropriate for the first post of 2012 to consist of a bit of sparkle. I love the ‘SparkleShine’ clutch (shop it here!). This outfit is pretty simple with the solid black, but the sequins makes it a bit more exciting. You can count on me to make a dress out of a top any time. Hence, the BCBG Max Azria top. It was one size fits all and I refused not to buy it because that. Afterall, I like my tops big anyway.

What I Wore:
BCBG Max Azria top, House of Holland tights from Urban Outfitters, Vince Camuto booties, ‘SparkleShine’ Love,Cortnie clutch

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

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!
