Save vs Splurge: Chanel No. 5 Bag and Kate Spade Wicker Camera Bag

Have you seen these two amazing bags?
Karl Lagerfeld is brilliant to have come up with the idea of converting the iconic Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle into a clutch. I have been daydreaming about the No.5 Perfume clutch since the time I saw it in the Chanel Cruise 2014 show.
Another statement bag I am obsessing over is the Kate Spade Wicker Camera Bag from her spring 2014 collection. I have always loved Kate Spade for her unique style and designs.
I don’t have the $9500 to buy the Chanel perfume bag (yet :P) so I found this Aldo perfume bottle bags as an alternative. They are pretty cute right?
If you don’t wanna break the bank for the Kate Spade bag check out the Accessories Camera bag I found. I definitely recommend having a few statement bags for your wardrobe.

Casual Friday

There are some days when I don’t wanna dress up. Just Jeans and a t-shirt seems perfect. Here is an outfit idea. Make sure your shoes and bag matches. Yes I am a little old-fashioned. 😀
P.S. Yes I am an adult and I still like Micky Mouse. 😀

Boho Fringe Dress

Some outfits are a statement in itself. I love this boho inspired dress by Jaypore. It’s so one of a kind with it woven halter neck and fringe details and the patterned layers of the hem. I have paired it with one wooden clutch and the gorgeous Tory Burch wedge sandal. I am already picturing myself wearing this on a sunny spring day. Boho Fringe Dress

Statement Camera Bag

I love statement pieces in any outfit. It makes you stand out, you can show a unique personality. In today’s outfit I love the statement camera shaped bag. It so quirky and chic. All the accessories has a black and gold tone in it which makes the outfit look very well put. I also love the cheetah print blouse in shades of pink. Today’s formula of fashion? Add a statement piece to your outfit!Statement Camara Bag

Trendy in Teal

Lighter shades of Teal has been my favorite for quite a while now so I had to make a teal color story. I love the Accessories Necklace and how it enhances the whole outfit. The formula for any outfit to look great is color coordination of various pieces put together. Here the navy blue dress and the blue and teal in the necklace creates a great balance between the two colors and creates a great look. Coordinated pieces is one of my formula of fashion.Trendy Teal

Floral Shirt

March 20th marked the beginning of Spring, even though the weather is still pretty sad. This however, doesn’t dampen my spirit! I am all set for spring. This season I am going to add a lot of floral pieces to my wardrobe. Here is the first one, a floral shirt. I love the floral print. It’s so refreshing and feminine. I have paired it with a basic blue denim and brown accessories. The J.Crew necklace adds a finishing touch to the outfit. What are some of your favorites for spring?Floral Shirt

Maxi skirts and dresses are my favorites for Spring and Summer. I have a couple of denim shirts and the exact same maxi skirt which lead to my outfit inspiration for the day.

The first time I saw wooden clutches are these ones from French Connection, and since then I have been lusting after one of these!
