Vest Friend

This vest has been my best friend lately and on constant rotation in my closet.  Not only is it the ideal outfit completer, but vests are the perfect transitional piece for this time of year.  And how about these Michael Kors shoes?  I am OBSESSED!  Not only are they super cute, but they just might be the comfiest pair of shoes in my closet right now…

Leopard

Leopard makes everything better. Well not really, but it does make just about every outfit better. So if you are looking for a quick and easy way to take an otherwise simple outfit up a notch, then try adding a leopard belt, purse, scarf, or even a pair of leopard shoes. And I promise you, it will do just the trick…

Fave Product Friday: Hobo International Belinda

It’s no secret that I am a deal huntress.  I love a good bargain and have a hard time paying full price for things.  Perhaps it’s the thrill of the chase, or perhaps it’s due to my profession-working as a buyer I know what things really cost.  But there are certain things that I will occasionally splurge on, and usually those things seem to fall into the handbag category.  In fact, I just used some of my birthday money to purchase this little number from Rebecca Minkoff-and I am so excited for it to arrive!!!  It will be the perfect summer bag/clutch for warm evenings when we ride our vintage cruisers out for dinner and drinks, or when we hit the farmers market, or pack up our picnic basket to catch an outdoor concert.

Another piece that I will not only get good use out of this summer, but also year round (pretty much 365 to be exact), is my Hobo International Belinda wallet.  And this really might just be one of my favorite purchases EVER.  In fact, I have used mine so much over the years, my original Belinda has been on it’s last leg, but was fortunately replaced with this gorgeous new version for my birthday (thanks mom!!).  And while it might sound silly, I have to say that I would truly be lost with out this wallet.  It keeps me organized, has room for all of my “stuff” (and then some!), and transitions perfectly from a wallet to a clutch.  When I am in a hurry and don’t want to carry a purse, I can just grab this out of my bag, throw in a lip gloss and my iPhone and I am SET.  The patent finish also makes it dressy enough for weddings or a night out on the town.  It really is the perfect piece.  A splurge that is WELL worth it.

You can purchase one of these beauties here, here, or here.

I know it might seem like a lot to spend $110 on a wallet, but I have to say that before I found the Belinda, I was constantly buying wallets every couple of months for $20-$50 a pop.  And now that I have found the Belinda, I have only had 2 new wallets in the past 3 years.  So the way I see it, it all evens out.

One word of caution.  Be wary of the lighter colors in the Belinda patent.  Even though I adored my yellow wallet, there is a transfer issue and it picked up colors from items in my bag over the years that don’t come off.  So I would advise going with a darker color (which is why I went with black this time around).  You can also try the Lauren, which is really similar-just a touch smaller and leather vs. patent.

Happy weekend!!
