All of us remember the classic overalls from our childhood years, even if you weren’t someone who owned a pair. I did! At the time I didn’t care at all about fashion, and wore them mostly for the convenience and comfort. I still remember my short pair. As we all know, trends seem to pop up from nostalgic times of the past—just look at all the styles that have re-emerged from the ’80s and early ’90s over the last few years! In 2014, the overall made a huge comeback, and although its popularity wavered since then, it appears it’s still going pretty strong. However, it’s evolved a lot since that re-emergence, now coming in more refined, skinny and fashionable options rather than the typical frumpy outdoorsy workwear look. I’ll admit I do not own a pair, as it’s one of those trends that I’m not sure about personally. That doesn’t matter to me much though, because it’s still awesome to me to watch what gets released every season, and I will say that there are some people who truly can rock them (I’m looking at you, Kate Bosworth and Miranda Kerr)!
Current Handbag Cravings
So this is one of those random posts that I’m inspired by a just-as-random internet window shopping fest…not really focused on anything in particular other than sharing some items that have currently caught my eye! Handbags and shoes are some of the most fun items to shop for, since they each have the ability of giving an entirely different look to an outfit. How that works is beyond me, but who cares…not many of us can resist a pretty, sparkly new (and functional) bag to make our everyday lives just that much more convenient, fun, and stylish. I am a big fan of both Rebecca Minkoff and Tory Burch, due to their classic, refined, yet eye-catching styles (Throw Mark Jacobs and the clean leather Coach styles in there too…but that’s for another post!). I recently saw a blog post from PurseBlog discussing National Handbag Day at Bloomingdales on 10/10/14, and the accompanying pop-up shop. This is where I discovered the beautifully vibrant cobalt blue Tory Burch Robinson Micro Double Zip Tote, which is a Bloomingdales exclusive! A Piperlime newsletter brought this gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff Amorous Satchel in Black Cherry to my eye. I LOVE a dark burgundy color, and it’s perfect for the Fall months upon us!
