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: Metallic Mini Clutch by Eric Javits

The perfect gold clutch.

I’ve been looking for the perfect gold clutch for several years.  I have these fantastic gold strappy sandals that I want to wear with pretty much everything all summer long.

This gold mini clutch from Eric Javits is the right size, the right classic shape, and I adore the little tassel.  Also, the signature flower closure matches the leather cut-out blooms on my sandals.

I guess at $300+ for this evening bag, I really would have to wear those shoes with EVERYTHING, ALL SUMMER LONG!

Daily Covet: Stella & Dot lambskin 3 ways

I knew Stella & Dot made great jewelry, but was surprised to see the label when I saw this gorgeous lambskin bag.  It’s true, Stella & Dot have a small line of handbags and cute accessories, to boot.

This cool handbag/cross-body bag/clutch is ideal in black and even features the fun Stella & Dot signature print on the inside.

My immediate reaction was Wow! This is so versatile!  Next, I thought about the 10′s of black handbags I already own and wondered if I needed another one.

Are you new here?  Of course I do!

Daily Covet: Jimmy Choo wild “kitten” pumps

These kitten pumps are slightly wilder than your average pump in their leopard yumminess.  Wild in print, and demure with a little key hole front, and topped off with a black bow.  Let’s not forget the statement-making patent upper.

I picture these pumps with J. Crews cafe capris in jewel tones come fall.  Or a simple LBD to the wedding we are attending in September.  Or jeans and a bold top for a girls’ night out.  Oh, the possibilities are endless….

Amazingly, these Jimmy Choos are on super sale IN MY SIZE too!

Daily Covet: Clare Vivier Bags

I found Clare Vivier bags on a cool blog I get updates from almost daily.  Clare Vivier’s first creation was born out of the need for a more feminine laptop bag, which could accomodate her computer and personal affects while she traveled often for her job in French television.

Clare Vivier’s extensive collection of clutches, totes, iPad cases and more will WOW! you with vivid color and beautiful materials.  Below is the Tropézienne sac that put Clare and her gorgeous bags on the map, and a few of my other faves too!  (Photos credits from seevivier.com)

Daily Covet: Get your hands on Marc Jacobs handbags

Leave it to GILT.com to offer another amazing collection of designer pieces at great prices (although still top designer prices).  Today, they have a slew of Marc Jacobs handbags in many colors, styles and fabrics.

Here are my faves…

Now you can carry Brian Atwood too!

Brian Atwood, designer of the luxe sky-high heels (and the covet of all covets), now has a new line of handbags for sale.  And GILT.com has them!

My favorite is the pink and silver minaudière at the bottom… but I’d take any of them, really.

Daily Covet: This Clutch is the Cherry Bomb!

Cherries and Berries foldover clutch, kslademade.com $72

I stumbled upon this k.slademade clutch sooooo by accident this evening.  And I LOVE it!  Because what’s not to love?

It’s custom-made upon ordering, the leather looks like butter, it has a pink zipper and it’s lined.  I’m not sure what the inside fabric looks like, but I’m betting it’s pretty cute too!

And it’s so inexpensive.  I have a feeling I should order one before someone fabulous starts carrying it (if they aren’t already!)  and then they become way over my SAHM budget…

The problem.  I want one in every color!

 

Black Tie New Year’s Eve

Love, love, love this blue color. It’s classic, elegant and the best part?  The dress is a mere $169!  But I wouldn’t be true to myself if there weren’t $500+ Manolo Blahnik shoes to go with it.  And why not?  Those you can wear forever.

Pair this stunning ensemble with very little else, but statement-making jewelry, and a black beaded silk jacket.

Now all I need is a place to go!
