The Fantastic Four: Burgundy Bags

I can think of quite a few things I love that come in the color burgundy: wine, my ballet leotard from when I was 9/10 years old, and these bags…

I haven’t bought a new purse in an eternity, and when I say that I mean it. It’s not like me saying I haven’t bought a nice blouse in a long time, knowing full well I went on a mini shopping spree last weekend and bought five. I need a new bag, and I don’t want a plain black one (although I may want a white one) – the color I’ve been drawn to as of late is burgundy. The Rebecca Minkoff – Large Affair is my current fave.

With fall on the way, what colors are you looking to add to your wardrobe/handbag collection?

Coveted Deeply

Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.

Coveted Deeply

[1] Stila captured a little bit of Tokyo style in a makeup palette that features some serious pink and purple alongside some neutral shades. Just thinking of the ways I’d reinvent the smoky eye, or play with the color combinations makes the Stila ‘Trendsetting in Tokyo’ travel palette a fun, flirty, and unconventional set that’s great for a gal who travels as much as me.

[2] Bracelets never get boring if you’re styling them the right way, and I’m not sure if there’s a wrong way to stack the Rebecca Minkoff ‘Twiggy’ bracelets.  The braided metallic genuine leather set of five is ultra mod yet grounded, just like the style icon they were named after, and I love the little silver metal accent with the Rebecca Minkoff monogram.

[3] Jennifer Lopez always knows how to rock a floppy hat, and I’d like to take her lead this summer, considering that I plan to spend a little bit too much time working on my tan. I just love the simplicity of the two tone wide-brimmed hat from Zara, and the cute little bow doesn’t hurt.

[4] It doesn’t look like a floral print but it is, and the mix of yellow and blue and the transition from light to dark from the top to the bottom is ultra flattering. This Cacharel silk crepe floral v-neck dress is a basic but beautiful silhouette that cinches at the waist for maximum effect.

[5] I’m not usually a fan of reptile prints and textures, but these Rupert Sanderson Gallion peep toe pumps might just convert me. The grey and black suede pumps could pass for tweed from a distance, they’re sexy without trying too hard and I just happen to be a sucker for peep toes.

Coveted Deeply

Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.

Coveted Deeply[1] Turquoise looks good on just about everyone, and with Spring on the horizon this piece by Siman Tu is so exquisite you’ll find yourself making up excuses to wear it over and over again. This piece is beyond covet worthy, it’s divine outfit inspiration whether you decide to wear it more appropriately with a beautiful evening gown, or with a boyfriend tee and wide legged jeans.

[2] Estée Lauder Wild Storm is the kind of dark pearl gray that’s grungy yet elegant. I’m in love with this nail polish, it’s unexpected, but the formula has a color that is potent, dark and utterly delicious.

[3] Form fitting and color rich the fuchsia Roland Mouret jersey dress wraps curves like a dream. Simply belted, or worn under a navy blazer, this dress is a wardrobe statement piece that works from the office to cocktail hour with a few accessory alterations.

[4] The lustrous pearl elements in the aqua cream Make Up For Ever cream eyeshadow will prove a force to be reckoned with. It’s bold and prismatic, so whether it’s being used as an eyeliner or full on eyeshadow, your eyes won’t look anything short of drop dead gorgeous.

[5] Aptly named so – the Covet handbag from Rebecca Minkoff is a piece I truly covet deeply, it has a mix of dove grey and soft nude that brings the Fall’s grey loving palette straight into Spring’s love affair with nudes.
