Fashion: Ralph Lauren Leather Slip Ons

common-projects-black-leather-skate-slip-ons-product-4-203182921-normal_large_flex
I love flats. I have a serious thing for them…and if they come in black and leather…even better. When I saw these Ralph Lauren black leather slip ons a few weeks back I knew they had to be mine. They are the perfect shoe that is comfortable the minute you take them out of the box. I greatly appreciate that, as I do quite a bit of walking through out the day. If you are looking for a comfortable and stylish slip on shoe…I suggest you give these a try on the next time you are in Macy’s.
Do you have a favorite slip on shoe?

Fashion: NYFW

Now before you think…omg Lauren went to NYFW…the answer is no…but it doesn’t mean we all don’t get to enjoy the awesome shows and excitement of all the new collections. I love reading fellow bloggers and watching online some of the wonderful fashion shows. Some of my favorites this year had to be Boy Meets Girl, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Alice and Olivia, and Proenza Schouler. You can check out some of the shows and blogs here.

Fashion: Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Review

Normally I stick to Chanel or Louis Vuitton when it comes to handbags…however the PS1 medium has been in the back of my mind for quite some time. Proenza Schouler was recently running their end of summer sale and I knew the deal was too good to be true. This bag is amazing. It has more compartments and zippers than any organizational lover could ever dream of. I love how easy it is to carry and how attractive the bag is. The leather is also butter soft…which for some people could be a downside since it will get a worn look over time. Overall if you are thinking of purchasing this bag…I highly recommend you do. Would I pay full price for this bag…probably not…but for the sale price…I would do it all over again.

Fashion: Adding a Pop of Color

5-pants-fashion-trends-for-spring-summer-2012-pastel-colored-pants

I am the first one in line to always wear the same neutral colors all the time…black…white…brown…gray…and sometimes pink. Its funny those colors seem to be the only colors I wear. This summer I decided to step out of my comfort zone a bit and try and add some more color to my wardrobe. Trust me it hasn’t been easy! I have discovered that adding a small pop of color to any outfit has been the answer for me. Whether it might be…a different colored pant, shirt, jacket, or accessories…it really seems to do the trick. I love how summery your outfit becomes…without going too crazy with color.

Fashion: Coco Joe

Besides purses and jewelry…mugs have to be another one of my all time favorite things. I love collecting mugs from places I travel, coffee shops and even vintage shops. I was searching the web for a pillow a few weeks back to add to my work space and came across this Coco Joe mug. I knew it had to be mine. How adorable is it to mix one of my favorite designers with another love of mine mugs. It fits perfectly on my desk as well. The mug is a bit on the smaller size but fits just right in your hand. If you are interested in picking up this mug, I highly suggest you check out Aien Q here. Please let them know I sent you!

Fashion: ASOS Online

The older I get the more I have enjoyed shopping online. I am a bit impatient when it comes to waiting for things in the mail but there is something to be said for taking your time scrolling through items in the comfort of your own home. I have found some amazing pieces online and hope to find many more in the future. Years ago I heard about ASOS and was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved their clothes. ASOS is a brand in the UK and is a bit like Zara and H&M mixed together. Great pieces both trendy and staples with great prices. The shipping to the US was free and fast which was a huge plus for me. Even though some of the items seemed a bit different in person the return process was simple and quick. If you are up for trying something new I highly suggest you give ASOS a look! Let me know if you go ahead and process an order!

Fashion: Fendi Bag Bugs

th-1th
Purses are one of my biggest passions. Over the years I have dabbled in just about every designer brand there is. A big trend amongst high-end designers are bag charms. I have never really been a huge fan of them as I much prefer the bag to shine on its own and prefer to put my money towards another bag instead. However…Fendi released the bag bugs a little over a year ago. My original thought when they were released was how hideous they were. As time went on…they started to grow on me. I prefer some over others but definitely think it’s a cute addition to any bag. I however can’t seem to pull the plug on these guys due to their price point.

Fashion: Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote

image

Work bags can be so hit and miss. I am the first one in line to splurge on handbags but cannot seem to do so when it comes to work bags. I know it really doesn’t make sense to me either. After looking through my handbag collection I realized every bag I own is in black…that doesn’t surprise me either. I love the style of this Tory Burch Robinson tote as Prada was the first designer to introduce this tote/briefcase style bag. I looked online and realized that it came in a stunning caramel brown color. I was sold. I called a Tory Burch store directly and lucked out as they had it in stock. They offered free two day shipping which made the impatient person in me cheer! Two days later it arrived beautifully packaged and truly more beautiful in person than online. I must say if you are looking for a classy and elegant work bag this is the one for you. This bag will not only hold everything you need but it will look new for quite some time as this bag is constructed with durable saffiano leather.
