Spring Handbag Wishlist

This Spring I really would like to switch things up a bit when it comes to my handbags. I am definitely a big bag kind of girl, but since I am planning to hang out more this Spring, I also need a chic mini bag as well. Zara and DVF have some great options so I am hoping to snag at least one this season.
Check out some of my picks below:

Kel’s Current Crush List

Kel's Current Crush List
I have been obsessing over this Kate Spade Beau satchel since the very beginning of fall. Now that I have returned my Wang (which was the worse bag EVER), I think I am going to replace it with this baby…I tried it on in Nordstrom yesterday and decided that it is def the right fit for me. Gawgeous!!
But, I am supposed to be focusing my attention on shoes…Shoes are the only thing that I really don’t have, so these two babies above are on my wish list. Nine times out of ten, I will go for the pumps even though pumps never fit me properly. I have the hardest time finding a pair of pumps that don’t look like I have a huge gap in between the back of my shoe and the back of my foot. The struggle is so real yall…So I’ll probably end up with the boots for rainy and snowy days.
The rest of my wish list is minor…I’ve been eyeing Tory Burch earrings (several pairs) for well over a year now. There are certain things that I have a hard time spending money on and costume jewelry is one of them. Lol…Regardless, not wanting to spend $58 on these has not stopped me from wanting them.
You guys know I love my sunnies as well. These futuristic babies are calling my name. I really don’t need them, but their future in my accessory closet is looking bright.
And everyone knows Mac’s Heroine lipstick is a must have. No need to elaborate on that one…

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.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Be blessed…xx KEL

What’s In My Wang

I know what you’re thinking…Kel, I thought you said you weren’t going to buy that Alexander Wang bag?! Well, my friends, I saw this puppy in Nordstroms (Tysons Corner, VA.) and I had to have it. Ya’ll know how I do. Lol…I originally wanted the one with the rose gold hardware, but I am so glad I opted for the matte black hardware instead. This bag is everything! I mean, look at that leather, honey!! I am so in love with it…

Alexander Wang Rocco

But since carrying this satchel, I have had to adjust the amount of junk I normally carry. The studs make this bag just a little heavy, so piling a bunch of stuff in here is a big no-no. I reduced the size of my wallet (I had been carrying the big leopard print Halogen one). I pulled out this old Juicy Couture one that I hardly ever use and fell back in love with it. Although its quite compact, I can fit all of my essentials in it.

Below are some other things I’ve been carrying in my satchel recently. As you can see I am usually only concerned about my eyes, lips, and hands. Lol…These TB sunnies have been a staple piece in my 2012 ensemble (I didn’t take them out of the case because you guys have probably seen them a million times since I bought them in July) and I carry them everywhere I go now.

As for the lippies, although I am usually a gloss girl, I have been loving Mac’s matte red lipstick in Ruby Woo. But let me tell you, that stuff is super DRYING! I’ve also been loving this cream lip stain from Sephora because it reminds me a lot of Ruby Woo, but it is also DRYING! I mean, maybe it’s me…Maybe I just have dry lips but sheesh! Therefore, I have to carry this Sugar lip treatment with me at all times. Whenever I go red I have to have some chapstick or something at the ready! I’ve never been a lipstick wearer but red lips are just sexy to me…Despite the hassle…(BTW if you know of a similar color that isn’t drying, please let a sistah in on the secret!)

As for my glosses, Smashbox’s Pulse is my number 1 most worn lip gloss in 2012. This is my second one and I have been wearing it to death! I’ve also been wearing this Bobbi Brown lip gloss in Firefly. If you like shimmer, you will love this one. I like layering it over sheer or nude gloss.

To keep my hands moisturized during this winter, I’ve been using Soap & Glory’s Hand Food. This stuff smells like heaven on your hands. Makes your hands super soft and moisturized without making them greasy. And when my cuticles are looking rough, I always reach for Burt’s Bee’s Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. If you like lemons, you will love this stuff as well.

Last but not least, I’ve been carrying this customized business card holder I received from an old boss some years ago. Since one of my goals this year is to network more at blogging events (and in general), I’ve been carrying my blog business cards with me in case I meet anyone who may be interested in Clutchez.

I do carry a little more than this in my handbag, but these are my most recent essentials. I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I hope you all have  a blessed weekend! xx
