    Cobalt & A LBD

    New Year’s Eve is approaching and that means it’s time to find the perfect ‘midnight’ ensemble. So while I am still not 100% sure on what I’m wearing to ring in 2014, I’m a firm believer that what you wear and how you feel on New Year’s Eve night pre-determines how your 2014 year will go!

    Either way, I’m set on looking fabulous! This number is one of my many options. I scored this adorable dress at Macy’s on clearance for $10. I love the cobalt blue accent with the black…gives the classic ‘LBD’ or little black dress a little extra something don’t ya think?

    I paired this look with my classic BaubleBar monogram necklace, a timeless piece that will never go out of style because…hello it’s you initials! Add the perfect pair of strappy heels, these are from Coach…like always my pieces have a story and these babies were scored ‘FREE’ at my company’s breast cancer awareness charity event with QVC back in October called ‘Shoes On Sale’….my boss bought each of us 2 pairs of shoes with the money going towards the numerous charities we support!

    And to top the look off…of course a a Rebecca Minkoff bag…I love her ‘Mini Mac’ bag. Don’t let the look deceive you, this bag can fit a lot and it lays comfortably over any outfit…it’s the perfect going out bag!

    I love this look, just not sure if I’ll be too cold when the ball drops…but who knows, it’s a possibility!

    Happy Sunday Funday!

    ‘Lust VS. Must’ – Quilted Blue Bag

    Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 1.28.55 PM

    I spotted this cobalt blue beauty on a few fashion bloggers and I instantly fell in love. Naturally I have taste for the finer things in life, however I certainly don’t have the budget to buy them, so on this week’s edition of ‘Lust vs. Must’ I bring to you the cheaper yet still chic version of the cobalt blue Chanel bag I fell head over *heels* for!

    While I couldn’t find an exact price on this Chanel show stopper, I’m sure it’s in the thousands, so I found a few great options to try!

    My ‘Must’ piece I actually purchased myself. It’s by the brand ‘Paradox’ available at Lord & Taylor and with all the sales and coupons only cost me $99! See how I styled it: here.

    Some other great quilted blue bag options I found are also reasonably affordable. I happen to have a love for Rebecca Minkoff, especially her handbags, so I fell in love when I found her ‘Affair’ bag in blue! You can get the large version with studs at either Nordstrom or Zappos, or the ‘mini’ version without studs at Nordstrom!

    If your a Michael Kors fan your in luck! Michael has a great quilted blue bag on sale at Piperlime for $213! I love the metal closure on the front and it’s also a perfect going out bag since it’s small and compact!

    A Bit of Blue & D’Orsay

    TGIF! I don’t know about you but I am thrilled its Friday and that means time for a 3 day weekend (since Monday is Veterans Day)!

    Today’s outfit once again breaks fashion rules. In the spirit of wearing white after Labor Day, I chose to rock these white ‘Rockstar’ skinnies from Old Navy. I love the fit of these, not to mention the fact that they only cost me $6 on clearance!

    A little piece of advice, always stock up on spring and summer clothes in the fall and winter season and vice versa. The sweater I’m wearing today I got at Old Navy two summers ago for $10…yes a total steal.

    I pulled the look together with casual black D’Orsay flats from the Nine West outlet (see link below for identical ones from Chinese Laundry at Nordstrom).

    To top it all off I rocked my new cobalt blue quilted leather bag I got on sale at Lord & Taylor! (Stay tuned for a lust vs. must post featuring the bag that inspired this purchase!)

    Now I’m off to another day in the chilly big apple!

    Happy Friday Fashion Lovers!
