What To Wear: Chic Tomboys

I don’t know if its because I don’t go out much anymore or if I am reverting back to my old tomboyish ways, but all I want is to be cute and comfortable nowadays. I am so tired of wearing shoes that hurt my feet just to look the part. So I have traded my high heels for these Nike dunks…Love them! Due to the wedge, I feel like a have a little more height (even though I’m 5’7) but not enough to have my feet screaming at the end of the day. Winning…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview: Accessories

I took a trip to the Nordstrom in Annapolis, Maryland on Thursday evening with my Mom, and was not wowed by much of what I saw. She left out of the store with 4 items and I left out with none! Shocking, isn’t it?! Lol…There are a handful of things that I liked but wasn’t willing to buy. One item that I am still contemplating is a Marc by Marc Jacobs Wallet, which I’ve included below.

I was expecting to purchase a rose gold watch (the best looking one in the sale is listed below as well), but a lot of the sale options this year looked cheap. Not sure what that is about but whatevs…But as far as accessories go, here is a preview of some things I thought you all may like:

What To Wear: Leopard+

In case you all have not noticed, I decided to change the name of my blog from Clutchez to Clothez & Clutchez. The name change just seemed to makes sense, and I feel like it gives people a better sense of what the blog is actually all about.

What To Wear is going to be a new series here on Clothez and Clutchez. Therefore, I will now be posting outfits at least 2-3 times per month. I really hope you all like the series…I had so much fun shooting these pics:

Nowadays, I find that I am always wearing leopard of some sort. Today its a blazer, tomorrow it may be shoes, and the next day it may be a clutch.

Traditionally, a lot of women tend to pair leopard with the color red. I thought it would be fun to pair this blazer with a different pop of color instead. This turquoise blue really does the trick, and I think the gold accessories really compliment the contrasts between the colors.

Jewelry Rut…

Has anyone else been in a jewelry rut?? Perhaps its just me…I used to be able to find cute costume jewelry but recently it has been really difficult. A few weeks ago I purchased a silver and gold spike bracelet from Nordstrom (here) but it tarnished after I had it for one week. A week?! Where they do that at?? The same thing happened when I purchased this Michael Kors bracelet, and I was pissed because that thing was like sixty bucks! What a waste of my duckets!

IMG_4315

There have been only a handful of jewelry pieces that have been giving me life lately. My gold Michael Kors watches have been on repeat for a couple of weeks now. I have other watches, but these two are my favorites at the moment.

As for earrings, it has been either studs or hoops. I have a new found appreciation for stud earrings, and I have been wearing these two a lot. Both I purchased at Nordstrom. The spiked ones are from the Nordstrom brand, and the blinged out skulls are from Betsey Johnson. Although I am known for my big ridiculous earrings I haven’t really been feeling them as of late. However, if I am not wearing a stud I am definitely wearing a hoop. These gold hoops are my fav, but I love any variation of big gold hoops.

When it comes to bracelets, I am in love with this shamballa bracelet. There are so many variations of shamballa bracelets, I am tempted to get more than one. I bought this black one from My Bella Couture. It’s a little different than the traditional ones I’ve seen, which is part of the reason why I like it so much. My other bracelet is one that I purchased a while ago when I used to work at Taxco Sterling, a sterling silver jewelry store in Washington, D.C. I love it because it is inspired by the David Yurman cuff bracelets.

Did you notice that most of this jewelry is gold? Yes, I have to admit that I am becoming a bit of a gold fanatic. I LOVE gold right now. We’ll see how long this lasts phase lasts…What do you prefer? Silver or gold? And do you find that even expensive costume jewelry turns way too fast??

BTW, I have my eyes on a few of the Pandora bracelets (black triple /double wrap and oxidized). Do any of you own one? If so, how do you like? The charms you can buy to go on them are super cute.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Talk to you all soon. xx

Arm Candy: Madewell, MK & Malibeads

As you all should know by now, I love my timepieces, and most of the time I do not pair them with bracelets (at least not on the same arm). Recently though, I’ve been trying to spruce up my accessories by adding a bracelet here and there and playing around with mixing metals and neons. I have never been one to mix metals before, but I think if you do it the right way, you can definitely pull it off:

Here I paired these two neon/gold bracelets from Madewell with this gold boyfriend MK timepiece. I love that both the golds and the neons pop, but don’t out shine each other…($22 each).

20120510-160856.jpg

Here I paired this silver and clear MK timepiece with an old sterling silver Juicy Couture bracelet I purchased a while back. You can’t see the heart on the bracelet, but it super cute and girly. The bracelet adds a little something but isn’t too much.

20120510-163029.jpg

Here I paired two gunmetal bracelets with a small gold MK timepiece, and I love this combo!! The small beaded bracelet is from Michael Kors (available here for $65) and the bracelet in the middle is from Malibeads (available here for $32). Although you can’t tell from this picture, the Malibeads bracelet is half chain and half beaded…this seems to be a really popular trend right now.

I am a huge fan of Michael Kors watches, but I have to tell you guys that the bracelet is not holding up very well. I love the look of it, but I’ve only had it for a little more than two weeks and the metal is turning already. The bracelet is cute, but be sure to hold on to your receipt!!

As for the bracelets from Malibeads and Madewell, they are holding up great and I definitely recommend them.

Hope you enjoyed this post! XOXO!!

Eastern Market: Weekend Flix

So I went to Eastern Market on Saturday (early afternoon) after a much needed mani/pedi with a friend of mine. It was so incredibly hot that I really didn’t enjoy Eastern Market as much a I normally would have…I definitely should have worn a sun dress!! I had fun nonetheless and had a delicious lunch at Mr. Henry’s,  a Pub right on Pennsylvania Avenue. Loved it!!! Check out the pictures below:
