Steal vs. Splurge: The Gray Tote

I honestly think I could make a living (if someone would pay me) just picking out Steals vs. Splurges out of magazines. It’s become almost a challenge. I don’t know if you’re like me…but I DREAM of a Givenchy Antigona bag. However, that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon, so I have been on the lookout for a fab gray bag like this…

Givenchy Antigona Tote, $2435

And today I was on Sole Society & I found it! The most beautiful gray bag in the world (besides that Givenchy!)…

Sole Society Tonal Stud Tote, $69.95

AND those studs…it just adds to the perfection that is this bag. It is literally a STEAL at $70. Some of us don’t have 3k to spend on a bag…who does? But if you want a fab bag at a fraction of the cost, grab this one!

What steals vs. splurges have caught your eye lately?




Saturday Obsessions: chloe + isabel

I totally looked at my calendar today & realized Easter is NEXT weekend! I immediately went into emergency “pick out my Easter outfit” mode! I have narrowed it down to a couple of dresses, but of course we all need fabulous jewelry to go with it. Enter chloe + isabel

I have become a merchandiser for this amazing company, and I LOVE styling outfits based on this great jewelry! The green ring pictured above is the Cushion Cut Cocktail Ring & has become my absolute favorite piece. How amazing would this ring look for Easter?

And these earring combinations in aqua or coral? Keep one pair for yourself & give one to your mom or BFF. How adorable would these look with that cute Easter dress?

All White Everything

Yesterday I was at a travel agent working on an upcoming trip I’m going on, and as I was looking through Europe books I found the most amazingly beautiful place ever…Mykonos island, Greece.

I have wanted to go there for a very long time, so after graduation I’m there!

It really got me thinking about the gorgeous white buildings everywhere…hence this outfit inspiration: All White Everything.

My favorite stores/designers for the perfect white style are:

Michael Kors//Kate Spade//Henri Bendel

The next Mykonos post will focus on the fabulous blues of that water! I can’t wait to travel to Greece some day!

Do you love the white trend? What do you have that’s white?
