Swooning for…Gold Bar Clutch


I’m a very sensitive person.  I cry at any and all ASPCA commercials.You know the ones with the Sarah McClaulin tear you up, too! However, there are times I tear up at a situation that the average person would equate me as being weird.  One of these instances is when I see something so fabulous, that my eyes begin to water at the thought that something so incredible exists and is affordable enough for me to get my pre-manicure paws on. Case in point, this Gold Bar Clutch by Matt Bernson.

Isn’t “she” fab?! Matt Bernson, the man behind my favorite black gladiators this summer, recently  introduced his Gold Bar Clutch and I am so thrilled. The clutch striking resembles the main staple of luxe and status; solid gold bar! The clutch is made of gold leather and lined with red satin. To help add to the bag uncanny resemblance, the top of the “bar” is stamped with Matt Bernson. Cherry on top? It’s only $156!

Since I plan to accessorize with gold accessories this holiday party season, I need this ASAP! However, it would work all year long. Plus, I love anything fashion related that can double as a conversation piece and this clutch definitely fits!

Swooning for…J. Aldridge Tall Wedge Lace Boot

I am really into boots this season! Tall, short, flat, or heeled. I need as many boots as my closet has room for.
Well, Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes just released her second collection with Urban Outfitters, which includes these tall wedge lace boots that are really spectacular to me.
I love the old romantic feel to them as well as the contrasting of the two colors. I’m yearning for these boots!
By the by, if you haven’t stopped by Jane’s uber fashion editorial-esque pictures filled site, Sea of Shoes, then you definitely are not in the loop! Plus, she was on last night’s episode of The City and featured in the upcoming issue of Elle.
