New to My Love,Cortnie Etsy Shop & Closet

From On January 4, 2012

The newest bag in my Etsy shop is the ‘Rosey Garden’ Statement Clutch. My sister came up with the name after minutes of brainstorming. This one is also EXTREMELY limited, so if you love it do not wait. Check it out here!

I haven’t done this in forever, but the items below are new to my closet. I can’t get enough of colored denim. The peach colored ones are from Express and the taupe colored jeans are from the Gap. What I’m also obsessed over is this insane buy from J.Crew. At a sale price of $24, these shorts are exactly how I pictured them to be. You’ve heard of boyfriend jeans? Well here is the shorts version of the style. Love them.

Although these Dolce Vita laceup boots aren’t exactly what I was looking for, they’ll have to do for now. I got the silver and black glitter flats from J.Crew (similar here) some weeks ago and surprisingly can’t get enough of them. Especially for someone that hates all things glitter. Lastly, I finally got my little hands on the smoking slippers I had my eyes on since I spotted them in a magazine months ago. Steve Madden’s (on sale here) version in this soft leather and studded toe had me in love at first sight. They’re also available in velvet with studs and leather with gold studs. Plus solid colors too!

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

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.

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
