The bag that got away

*head desk* I cannot believe what an idiot I’ve been. Loeffler Randall’s Rider bag was on a ridiculous sale at Saks Off Fifth for about a week now and I found this perfect natural color that I wanted ever since I laid eyes on the style, I have no idea what the hell I was waiting for. I finally have the funds for it, all I have to do it add it to chart. The price of the bag is originally $525.00, Saks was selling it for $220!!! Now they are all sold. Last weekend I signed up on the LR’s website for a “surprise” in my inbox everyday. Today I got an e-mail saying some of their Riders are $200 off but it is not the color that I wanted. Powder Blue is not bad but it is not my first choice either. I’ve become this impulsive shopper to a undecisive one, I am not sure which is worse.

Help! Should I wait for another sale of the natural color or just settle with the blue? Will the natural be ever available at the price I wanted again? Or should I just give up and put the $$$ towards a more investment type priced bag?

That two piece dress

An item on my wish list is a two piece dress. The one where in you have a crop top and then a skirt to match it. I love it so much but the designs out there is something my physique wouldn’t match. Most dress I tried are either too big or too small. And then eShakti was introduced to me. They provide designs for their clothing and you can customize it based on your measurements. So they go beyond the typical small to large size we find at our favorite retailers, in short there is no such thing as out of stock or “not available in your size”. Another feature is  you can modify the styles and choose different sleeves, neck line cuts and length. It is having your own tailor without the ridiculous price and they can make it in 14 days. This is the website where I found the two piece dress that I am looking for. It is 50’s inspired navy color. This is the photo of their original design.lip And I modified it with a short sleeves, sweet heard neckline and knee length skirt. The look is of a vintage inspired 1950’s reconstructed piece. Here is the finish product IMG_2055

uuuu

I really love the dress it is so comfortable, the color is great, I really love the red and white stripes in the crop top. The company also used quality material for this two piece dress and the construction is crafted beautifully. It is especially a plus that the customer service is excellent.

The perfect summer purses

Purses are very crucial in accessorizing, I rarely see a female sans handbag draped in her arm. It is just not possible, the stuff in our bags or as the male species would call it “junk” have to be placed somewhere else right? Our environment is demanding we use less plastic in these generation, so most grocery shopper either have a recycled non-woven tote bag in their midst. Mothers like me, either carry a baby bag or an oversized tote to haul all the stuff for our babies, but now that he is 2 years old, I can actually pack light with the use of a medium size crossbody bag. Club goers op for the cutest clutches, working woman either gets a tote bag, brief case or any top handle that would look professional yet still incredibly stylish. Said handbag suggestions also comes in different colors, occasions, etc. Like the different styles, every season, the female population also match everything we wear with the season. You can’t wear long sleeves or jacket in the summer that would be insane, well it goes that same with bags, sure not to much but still… Anyway, this leads to my original subject, “The Perfect Summer purses” I think most of us can agree that bright colors and pastels are it or prints / patterns that screams summer! He are different summer perfect purses for every style, what’s best about it is it won’t break the bank. (click the images to but the bag)
