Newbies

I went to Pentagon City (a mall in Virginia, for those of you who don’t live in the DMV) and Nordstrom Rack last week and bought a few items…I also received these nail polishes in the mail two weeks ago…Deborah Lippmann’s Sweet Dreams (pink with flakies in it) was on sale on http://www.hsn.com and Butter London’s Tart with a Heart (gold/nude glitter) I purchased from http://www.Nordstrom.com with my Nordstrom Note!

I love Vigoss jeans from Nordies BP!

A Juicy Couture iPad case that I will be carrying as a clutch!

Finally found this Michael Kors Hollywood fragrance in Nordstrom Rack! Loves it!

This Week’s Flix

I am totally obsessed with Instagram. I have been posting pictures like crazy on there. I just wanted to show you all, who are not or cannot follow me, what I have been up to this week.

First, I am doing a challenge on Instagram where I have to post a picture of polishes that I haven’t tried/swatched yet. This is our collective effort to use the polishes we have (especially the ones we haven’t used yet) before buying more polish. Here are some of my swatches thus far:

Color Club's New Bohemian, Julep's Oscar, China Glaze's Sugar High, and Misa's Bikini With A Martini...

Here are all of my untried/haven't swatched nail polishes...I know...it's out of control! Lol...Don't judge me!

Here is another color I swatched before the challenge began:

Orly's Stone Cold...A gorgeous shimmery blue...

I also posted some pictures of a few accessories I purchased this week:

Scarves from TJ Maxx...Perfect for Spring...

A statement ring from Nordstrom Rack...

I'll discuss what I purchased from Nordies and Juicy later on this week...Lol

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!! XOXO

Totes

With my last year of grad school quickly approaching, I am in need of a new tote bag. I’ll be doing tons of reading and research as well as writing so I am looking for something that can handle my spiral notebooks, books, and the rest of the junk I carry around with me on a daily basis. Here are a few that I am considering…If you have any suggestions for totes I may like, please do not hesitate to let me know!!

Choosing the Right Handbag (Part Two)

As readers of my blog you should already know that I would recommend that you buy your handbags at Nordstrom. Their customer service is phenomenal and their return policy is amazing. However, I am not crazy enough to think that other department stores don’t have similar return policies. Just be sure to find out what the return policy is before purchasing because if you are going to spend a lot of money on your handbag, you will want to be able to bring it back if something goes wrong. Other department stores where you can find nice handbags are Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s and Lord and Taylor.

You should also check out stores like Off Saks 5th Ave., Filene’s Basement, Loehmann’s, Neiman Marcus Last Call, and Nordstrom Rack. You can find a lot of discounted handbags from previous seasons there. Outlets are also a great way to save money on name brand items so be sure to check them out as well.

Last but not least, if you live near any boutiques or thrift shops don’t sleep on them. They just might have exactly what you are looking for. Thrift shops are hit or miss, but most of the time boutiques will have very unique, one of a kind, handmade bags that aren’t heavily manufactured so you won’t have to worry about seeing another woman carrying your bag.

Sidenote: If you choose to purchase handbags through websites like Ebay, be very careful because not everyone is honest and it is easy to be deceived online. Check the sellers return policy as well as their ratings before bidding.

Brands:

I am a huge fan of coach (especially the Madison satchels, which is why I own three of them)!! Other brands I love are Guess Marciano, Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Steven by Steve Madden, L.A.M.B., and Juicy Couture. These are mainly the brands that I actually own, but there are many others that I like…however, I won’t bore you with all the extra commentary.

Final Tips:

My sister always makes the joke that all my handbags have bags (i.e. dust bags), which I think is hilarious, but totally necessary!! You don’t want your bags to get dusty when you are not wearing them so you should definitely make sure that you place them in a dust bag when storing them in your closet.

Now for the fun stuff…Here are a few bags that are on my wish list…for whatever reason I am obsessed with Marc Jacobs at the moment! This first one I am definitely going to purchase!

Burberry Leather Satchel

Coach Satchel

A Pop of Color: PINK!!

Pink is no longer exclusively for the prim and prissy! As we are quickly approaching summer, I thought I would do a post on all things pink! I actually don’t wear a lot of pink clothing, but I love pink accessories. Here are some miscellaneous pink things I want to add to my collection for summer…check it out and tell me what you think!

Marc Jacobs Iphone Cover, $28 / Juicy Couture Ipad Cover, $48

NARS Nail Polish, $16 / Make Up Forever Lab Shine, $18 / Michael Kors Chronograph, $160

Beach Sexy Victoria's Secret Swim Suit, $40

 

Marc Jacobs Crossbody Handbag, $525
 

Now if you are not a fan of the color pink, you can add a different pop of color. Let me also say that wearing all this pink together will definitely be overdoing it! However, feel free to pick and choose various items to add to your summer accessories. I just think a pop of color not only helps brighten your look, but it also helps brighten your mood. Happy Shopping!!
