COLOR SPLASH: A STYLISH WAY TO ADD A POP OF RED TO YOUR LOOK

redpurse

Yes, it’s cold outside and dressing for winter days often seems to call for dark colors.  Perhaps that’s one reason I have a closet full of black sweaters!  But don’t let the cold get you down… add a pop of red to brighten your day.

The easiest way to add some color is with your accessories.  Tory Burch has added an amazing selection of red leather bags to her collection, like the Serif T Saddlebag, above.  It’s the perfect size for all your purse must-haves.

I also love the way Missy over at MissySue.com styled her winter look with a cheerful red pom hat.  She’s definitely ready for the cold.

Of course if you dare, go full on color with red in more than your accessories.  It’s sure to brighten any day!

For Stylish Fall Add A Pop Of Red To Any Outfit

A LOOK BACK AT 2015

What a great year 2015 has been!  Thank you so much for your follows and likes… it makes this blog what it is and so much fun for me to write.

2015 brought us the great Lilly Pulitzer – Target collaboration, which was one of the most popular topics I shared this year.  I wonder what the can’t miss collaboration will be in 2016?!

My personal fashion story this year, was the great purse saga, where I obsessed over the Gucci Soho, the Tory Burch Perry and more.  I also debated the merits of over-the-knee boots and open-toed booties, both of which I highly recommend.

Finally, I shared with you some of my favorite beauty finds, like Billion Dollar Brows and my favorites from Chanel.  I plan to share more in this category in 2016, as a personal focus of mine is taking the absolute best care of my skin.

Here’s wishing you a safe and joyous New Year’s, and I’ll see you in 2016!

GET GIGI HADID’S COOL BOHEMIAN LOOK

If there is a model du jour, it is no doubt Gigi Hadid.  She’s rocked everything from Sports Illustrated to the top runways at New York Fashion Week and around the world.  Gigi also has amazing personal style that’s effortless and right on trend.  Here she looks flawless in a Tory Burch jacket and simple accessories, which is perfect for traveling or a day of shopping.

The amazing Tory Burch jacket is last season, but you can still get this look:

SUMMER SALES TOO GOOD TO PASS UP

Tory Burch LogoTHIS WEEKEND ONLY EXTRA 30% OFF SALE ITEM

Sometimes a sale is just too good to pass up, and the extra 30% off sale items at Tory Burch this weekend is one of those times.  Shop now, as items are selling out quickly – as in, the cute Reva keychain that was in my cart was sold out when I went to purchase.  Sad.  No worries, though, as there are still lots of shoes, handbags, and clothing items to choose from.

A couple of my favorites are the Ravena caftan, originally $350, now just $122; and the Beach zip tote which was $150 and is now a total steal at $73.50.  Us the sale code EXTRA30 at checkout to get the discount, now through Monday.

 

Another brand I obsess over is Julie Vos and her amazing jewelry and scarves.  She launched her semi-annual sample sale this morning where you’ll find 24k gold and gemstone pieces that are luxurious and timeless.  No code necessary.  Enjoy!

WANT IT WEDNESDAY – TORY BURCH PERRY TOTE

I’ve been searching for a new handbag for a few months now.  I’ll see something I love, only to find out it’s out of my comfort zone for spending, or I’ll see something I like but don’t love.  Enter the Perry Tote from Tory Burch!  I’m obsessed with Tory Burch handbags as it is — they’re stylish and functional and amazingly well made — and the Perry Tote seems to be that bag that has it all.

It’s a buttery soft over-sized bag that will hold everything I need, including a laptop, making it the perfect everyday bag and a great travel accessory.  I love that it has a couple of inside pockets for a cell phone and keys.  The Tory bucket bag I’ve been carrying doesn’t have any pockets at all, so I find myself digging around for things all the time.

The Perry comes in four fantastic colors, including a blush tone that’s perfect for summer.  I’ll add the black or cognac color this fall.
