Happy Easter Sunday to all of those who celebrate! It’s finally starting to feel and look like spring here in New York, however I’m still having dreams of California, and that means reliving one of my favorite outfit shoots with Kristi…visiting the beach in Santa Monica!
While I most certainly wouldn’t wear this look to the beach, I am totally embracing the pastel colors for Easter, spring and warmer moments to come. This white perforated skirt was a huge hit at Lucky Fabb and felt I had to give sufficient outfit details here on the blog 🙂
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!
