JAMIE’S Crystal Embellished Clutch – $400

ABOVE: Michael Kors Wicker & Patent Clutch, $100
BELOW: Celebrate Titanic being re-released in theaters this spring in 3D with this beautiful, hand crafted wooden masterpiece by designer Timmy Woods. The only thing better than that – is the fact that this piece is hand signed! $400

Every time I see Timmy Woods’ designs, I can’t help but think of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City. Fabulous. Each bag has attached straps – so carry it as a clutch, or sling it across your shoulder. They each also come with dust bags to keep them safe and sound. $100

Leaning a little to the left? This bag is for you! Originally coined as the symbol of the Democratic party by political cartoonist Thomas Nast in reference to Thomas Jefferson, this adorable little patriotic donkey is waiting for a good home! Who could say no to that cute face? $120

Making the Most of your Wardrobe

Most of us don’t have the space to store the abundance of clothes, shoes, and jewelery that we would like.  So we have to make the most of what we have.  Nobody likes dressing in the same outfit everyday like a cartoon; however, there are ways to keep your wardrobe small, but packed with flavor!

I chose six pieces and made 10 different outfits, but there is a lot more I could do with just these six.

 

This is a dress with a trendy maxi skirt over it!  Super easy and cute!

This is done with the same mini dress and the adorable free people vest.

Try putting a tee shirt over the top of the dress!  Remember, shoes and jewelery can change the whole look!

When buying new clothes, keep in mind what things you already have that would match.

By rolling up the sleeves of the shirt, untying it, and adding a vest you get a whole new look!

Here’s a new piece in the mix!  A pair of dark purple skinny jeans.

Yes, this one looks familiar, but still different.  Try tucking in your shirt and adding a cute vest to your look!

Having a cute blouse can pretty much go with anything!  If it is a neutral then it is even easier to pair.

Again, putting a blouse over the mini dress and adding a vest is super easy and shows your style.

This is the same look with different vests and necklaces.  Gotcha!

Special Thanks to:

“Urban Renewal” Stripe vest: $24.00; The Doors “Junkfood” tee: $28.00; “JM Collection” skirt: $20.00; “Free People” vest: $48.00; “H&M” blouse: $16.00; “Glam” dress: $ 28.00; “Adriano Goldschmeid” jeans: $80.00

“Express” necklace: $20.00; multi-color necklace: $ 24.00; Horn/Wood necklace: $12.00; green beads/chain necklace: $ 18.00

There are a few more outfits you cam make out of these, but remember the simplest changes can make all the difference!  Keep this in mind when you are traveling, going on tour, taking a vacation, or simply cleaning out your closet!

Ciao Bellas!
