this is clutch!

There is one thing that is certain and that is the fact that clutches are here to stay. You can dress them up for a black tie event or you can dress them down for a bite with girlfriends.

If you are in the market for a clutch by some of the season’s hottest designers then you had better act fast because these deals at Saks Fifth Avenue are sure to go quickly.

Maison Martin Margiela’s Python Clutch, was $2225, today you can have it for $890


Jimmy Choo’s Chandra Shimmer Suede Multi-Chain Clutch, was $1295, today you can have it for $648


Stella McCartney Beckette Wooden Clutch, was $1865, today you can have it for $746



thinking ahead~the great transition

i know it is hard to believe, but the snow really will melt (here, in the South, it did a day later) and the temperature will rise. what will you do when spring peeks through your days?

ankle boots are a personal favorite for the great transition. these cute little things can be worn with jeans, skirts and even shorts. if you are on the top of your game, you can grab some now with deep discounts on Neiman Marcus Last Call. not only have they put all of their boots on sale, they are currently being sold with an additional 40 percent discount! you cannot afford not to stop in for boots like these:

Sergio Rossi’s Perforated-Shaft Boot orig $915, today $270!


Miss Sixty’s Cox Studded Calf Hair Cowboy Ankle Boot orig $350, today $110


Schutz Astrid Multi-Buckle Ankle Boot orig $320, today $144



i have to admit, i am super excited about my most recent purchase. not only did i get it at a deep discount, i know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will soon be my go-to top. (drum roll please)

introducing my PJK Patterson J. Kincaid Maryann Pocket Crew Neck Top



i so love this top because of its versatility. not only can i wear it with my favorite skinnies, i can also wear it with black leggings for an even more casual look. if i want something a little dressier for a girl’s night out, I can dress it up with my black waxed ankle jeans and heels.

this top is the perfect piece because it combines a silk shell (think flowy) with raglan jersey sleeves (think cozy). for added interest, it features a front patch pocket and detail around the neck. simply put, it is not your average top.

snag it today at shopbop for just $117! that’s $50 less than it was at a local retailer that i visited over the weekend!

also available in egret


bag it!

if you are like me, then you are slightly obsessed with a good bag; if you are like me, then today is your lucky day because bloomingdales has just released a new coupon code for 25 percent off their current sale items (WARMUP). what does this mean for my fellow bag lovers? that means that you had better click over to bloomies and bag these deals while they are still available.

just a few of my favorites include:

Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody – MAC with Flat Studs ~ orig. $425, with the coupon code it is yours for $223!


DIANE von FURSTENBERG Clutch – Flirty Minaudière ~ orig. $345, with the coupon code it is yours for $181


i would be simply leaving you in the dark if i did not include this beauty; however, i must warn you that the code does not work on any marc jacobs bags ~ boo!

Marc Jacobs Shoulder Bag – Baroque Large Single ~ orig. $950, today it is $399!



i dunno know why, maybe it is the frigid weather outside or maybe it is just my mood, but this morning, when i woke up, i felt like stripes so i decided to go with it. what is more is that you can have this look today for much less.

my inspiration:


try pairing the Rag & Bone Pump Jacket ~ today, $192.50


with the Graham & Spencer Striped Autumn Turtleneck ~ today, $69.50


and a pair of skinnies, such as Joe’s Jeans Super Chic Skinny Ankle Jean ~ today, $110.60!


they cost how much?!?

you will soon find that i have a small addiction to shoes. there is just something about a new pair of shoes (no matter how painful they are) that makes my heart so happy.

today belle & clive is hosting a great designer shoe sale. expect names such as fendi, jimmy choo, marc jacobs and gucci just to name a few. whether you are craving a new pair of booties, heels or flats, you are sure to find just what you are looking for at a price that you can justify. i have to warn you, the sizes are limited, so you have to act fast!

my faves:

FENDI’s beige suede cutout platform booties ~ orig. $995, now $495



GUCCI’s honey burnished leather lace-up ankle booties ~ orig. $760, now $545


RUTHIE DAVIS camel and clemintine leather colorblock ‘Hamel’ pumps ~ orig. $978, now $295


choo, choo!

okay, so i have a small confession to make. i have literally put off even looking into the jimmy choo sale. reason why? because the last thing that this girl needs is a new pair of shoes. so, i waited and boy am i sad that i did. i accomplished my goal of not partaking in any choo fun but only because my size is SOLD OUT in every shoe that i can justify buying ~ i mean, they DO have a pair of heels that look a whole lot like the pair that i bought this past summer sooooo, i dunno, i might just go back and confirm that order. in the meantime, i think you should strongly consider clicking over the the jimmy choo sale and here are just a few teasers:

i so LOVE DYLAN, especially now that he is priced at $598~don’t make that face, he use to be $1,195!!


a great choo staple is the PAPINA. much like the PERFUME, you can throw these on with shorts, a dress or jeans. what’s more is you will not have buyer’s remorse due to their incredibly low $225 price tag!


finally, i saved the best for last. check out DAXEN. can you say FUN?!? if your new year’s resolution was to shake things up a bit or if you just want an excuse to buy a great pair of booties, then you can fulfill your desires for $548 (its jimmy choo people).


sweaters on sale? winter has just begun!

Thanks to several contemporary designers, the word “sweater” no longer means big and bulky. The sweaters of today are just as trendy as the latest released Jimmy Choo booties. Some of my favorite pieces have bold patterns and incorporate several different materials, like metal and leather.

Take, for instance, the DIANE von FURSTENBERG Estelle Zebra Print Sweater. This sweater has lots of personality and can be paired with a pleated skirt for a dinner date or with your favorite black skinnies for lunch with your besties. Even more appealing is the fact that you can have it today for $241-it was $345 two weeks ago!


Another fave is the JAMISON Color Block Silk Sweater. This sweater is a very versatile sweater that can be worn with your favorite dark denim or you can add of pop of color with some bold, colored skinnies. Today it will cost you $198 compared to its $284 original price tag!


Add a rough edge to your closet with this 525 America Faux Leather Front Cardigan for only $105! You can toughen it up with a pair of black biker boots or soften it down with a pair of black booties.


I simply LOVE this delicate concoction. This Ella Moss Oversized Sweater can be yours for just $186! Quite a deal considering its $248 original price tag! You might want to act now though, I’m fairly certain that at least one of these will be in my shopping bag this morning!
