Daily Covet: In My Clutches

Hello friends!

I have much catching up to do.

I’ve been shopping far more than I’ve been writing, so it’s high time I share.  Don’t you think?

Anyway, I was on the hunt for something.  I can’t even remember what, but came across an entire page of truly delicious clutches at The Outnet.  At first, I was going to post the one I liked best.  But there were so many, I couldn’t decide.

So here’s a gaggle of the gorgeousness I found yesterday.  And yes, I do realize half of them are pink… what can I say?  I’m a girly-girl.

Enjoy!

Daily Covet: Anthropologie Willoughby Sofa

I need a new sofa.

Well, I need another sofa.

I love the sofa I have, but I am dying to add some bold color to my otherwise subdued living room.  And on a rainy day this week, I spent the day moving my furniture around and around to no avail.

This is the Willoughby sofa I have my eye on… in fact, Anthropologie has a whole gaggle of furniture I wouldn’t mind adding to my maison.

Take a good look at this lucious velvet sofa.  Isn’t it delish?

Daily Covet: Rag and Bone Black Boots

After dresses and coats, boots are by far my favorite item(s) to shop for.

Years ago, I bought some gorgeous black ankle boots that are almost identical, but had the square toe up top.  I’ve never been able to part with them even though that toe is quite out of style…

However, this ultra cool pair of Rag and Bone Driscoll black boots are TO.DIE.FOR.  They are sleek, but have a hint of “biker girl” to them.  They are so similar to my old ones, but with an updated rounded toe and a cool ankle strap with stud closure.

If I were to drop almost $600 on a new pair of boots this fall, these would be the ones!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Tayla

Since we’re talking outerwear, let me just add this awesome Kate Spade “Tayla” topper to my list of needs wants.

The adorable pyramid-style buttons and patch pockets make this coat detail rich.  And it’s a versatile coat, which comes in two of the most rockin’ colors:  Loden and Gold.

So one in each color then?  Yes, please.

Daily Covet: iPhone 5 Purse

I may have been out of the fashion loop for some time, but is this as exciting to you as it is to me?

I happened upon an iPhone 5 purse that is so cute and cool — best of all you know your phone will fit in it.  Well, that is, if you have actually upgraded your phone to the iPhone 5.  (I have not, sadly.)

With that said, there are new iPhone 5 models out ( iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S), which is all the more reason to upgrade for great accessories, right?

Check out the inside of this little purse.  The perfect perch for your iPhone 5 and a little pocket for your ID, credit cards and money.  “There’s not enough room for your lipstick,” you say?  An excuse to go out and find that 12-hour red lipstick that means no re-application necessary!

Daily Covet: Milly Printed Sheer Dress

Still loving dresses… you should know this about me by now.

This Milly printed sheer dress is the perfect silhouette for this girl, who’s only 8 weeks out from the birth of her child.

Michelle Smith’s Milly dress provides nice “armpit fat” coverage and a relaxed fit that skims “birthing hips,” two things I could live without, frankly.  However, since these are a forgone conclusion, I’ll dress for the body I HAVE, not the body I WANT.

But there are two more details that make this dress anything but post-pregnancy frumpy:  Sheer insets at the sleeves and an exposed zipper, which I’m always a sucker for.

It’s like wearable art!

Daily Covet: Givenchy Nightengale Satchel

This post will be short and sweet because I’ve gotta get someone off to school and two others to the pool for one of the last waning days of summer.

But that doesn’t mean I was going to skip posting this UH-MAZING Givenchy Nightengale Satchel.  I have to say that I’ve got nothing but love for this bag.  And why wouldn’t I when it’s oh so close to my annual handbag budget… NOT.  But that’s what LBS.com is for, right?

So take a long, hard look at what I wish I was going to be carrying this fall.  I also wish I was going to be wearing something without spit-up on it this fall, but that’s probably not going to happen either.

A girl can dream.
