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).

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.

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!!

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!

Review: Michael Kors Grayson Satchel

My sister (Hey Kerri!) came by my house last night and I was obsessing over her Michael Kors Grayson (large) satchel she recently received for Christmas when I noticed that there was something on it…I thought she had gotten something on the bag and that it just needed to be wiped off. To my surprise the patent leather coating on the satchel was coming off on both sides of the handbag! She has literally been carrying this satchel for two weeks and is quite disappointed in the quality of the bag.

We both are huge Michael Kors fans, but this is ridiculous…See it for yourself:

(Click on the images to enlarge them)

I took a look at the reviews on this bag on www.Nordstrom.com and a number of customers have had a similar experience after only carrying the handbag a few times. So just be aware of the fact that the coating on this particular handbag is not durable or longlasting. I suggested to my sister that she take it back to Nordstrom and get a totally different bag because this is absurd!

I hope this post is helpful to you as you shop for handbags…Smooches!! XOXO

My Habit

A co-worker of mine (Hey Brad!) recently told me about Amazon’s new private fashion website, www.MyHabit.com. Basically, it is a site where you can access designer clothing, accessories, beauty products and home goods for a discounted price (about 60% off). I’ve seen designers such as Michael Kors, Just Cavalli, Rebecca Minkoff, Love Moschino, and many others featured on the site so far.

Each sales event begins at 9am PT/12pm ET and lasts for 3 days. As you can image, the items sell out pretty quickly so if you even think you may be interested in purchasing an item, you must add it to your cart immediately! Then you will have a couple of minutes to purchase the item or it will be released to be purchased by another (possibly waitlisted) customer. It really reminds me of buying concert tickets! Lol…So intense!

If you already have an Amazon account, you can log in with the same email and password, and any credit information you have stored on your Amazon account can be accessed on MyHabit as well. The shipping and return shipping is free for U.S. customers, and you should receive your item(s) within 4 business days.

MyHabit is quite similar to Gilt Group and Haute Look, but because I am huge fan of Amazon I had to dedicate a post to them!

Lastly, I scored these Michael Kors Ludlow Sunglasses for $60 (retailed at $135) the other day, which I should receive by tomorrow…Loves it!:

Happy Shopping! XOXO

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!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent Leather Satchel

Burberry Leather Satchel

Coach Satchel

Michael Kors Leather Hobo
