Connecting Fashion Around The World
I feel like it has been forever since I published a new post. This past month has been a little crazy for me! I had a minor surgery at the beginning of January, followed by a trip to L.A. and New York City for fashion week. Hectic schedules can sometimes allow us to forget about other obligations, planning, and saving we may have to do. When Supursestyle reached out to me asking to collaborate, they could not have chosen a better time.
With handbag prices at an all-time high, and some forgoing a month’s rent to have the latest and greatest, Supursestyle is an exciting new service that offers an alternative way to participate in experiencing the latest fashion trends. They offer luxury within reach in four easy steps:
1. Choose the item you love
2. Receive it in the mail
3. Rock it
4. Return it
Once in a while you may see me splurge on a new handbag, but to be honest I am more of a shoe girl. When you have the opportunity to rock designer bags such as Céline, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga etc. at a fraction of the retail price, why would you NOT?!
For the most part, I know what I want. What I mean is…when I really LOVE a pair of shoes or bag I know. I don’t go back and forth or change my mind. However, if you are the kind of person who can change your mind on a whim or get tired of something after a short period of time, this is a great service to look into. It is a more economical way to expand your collection.
I do not own a Céline handbag but I have always loved the Nano! Fashion week was literally the best time to take it out, give it a whirl, and see what I thought. I received SO many compliments on my “new” handbag that came in perfect condition. A friend of mine asked me, “When did you buy that bag?” “I love it” ....and so do I!! The black and white mini luggage tote was an amazing choice for the city. The neutral colors and cross-body strap allowed me so many options.
Today’s look is one I wore out the night before fashion week officially began. Black pants, my new Miu Miu suede feather ankle booties, and a fishnet top by Dries Van Noten were complemented by my new it-girl handbag…and I didn’t save for over a year to have it. This was the best feeling!
Renting handbags is a relatively new concept and it offers instant gratification. Check out www.supursestyle.com . If you want to try out a new handbag, use code: NOM at checkout and receive 15% off. You will not be sorry!!!
Beanies and fedoras are a fashion girls favorites during cold weather seasons, but no hat collection is complete without a beret. Beyond the official duties of the topper in the military, the beret has almost become a cliche symbol of Parisian style. The statement piece has been around for years and topped the heads of style icons like Twiggy and Brigitte Bardot. Some may find the beret a little harder to pull off, but at the end of the day the hat is what one may call “Tres Chic”
The Gucci version I have on today is crafted from red leather and sits smoothly on the top of the head, adding a stylish touch and pop of color. I have said it before, but I am going to say it again! Red is SO striking. I decided to style the vibrant color with a checked faux fur from Alice and Olivia and Christian Dior pumps for an elegant look that can be worn day to night.
“Boyfriend Style” clothing has become a huge phenomenon. From denim, to tees, sweaters, tailored pieces and even shoes…the masculine style is taking over womenswear. The roomier and slouchier pieces offer an alternative to the infamous skinny jeans and tight crop tops (no complaining here)
The off-duty esque style is effortless and cool. Today’s boyfriend sweater from Current/Elliott is relaxed and detailed with shaggy fringe accents. Since the charm of the boyfriend sweater lies in the oversized shape, you will want to pair it with something more slim fitting on the bottom. I opted for black leggings (my winter go-to) and Rag & Bone antique white boots. The floppy brim fedora, which has turn into a closet staple is another piece inspired by the classic accessory favored by the dapper gentleman. This modern version is made of soft wool and has a contrasting leather band. Adding a fedora to a casual look always gives it a little extra something.
Last, but certainly not least today’s saddle bag by Cuyana is one of my favorites. I tend to wear bags that have a long strap because in general they are just so much easier. This hands-free crossbody not only will complement any look but is also roomy enough for all of your must-haves while on the go. Check it out because it comes in several colors and styles. You can shop today's look below. Thanks for stopping by!!
