Prada Black Cat Eye Sunglasses for Spring 2015 – whether it is freezing and still snowing where you are or if you live in Arizona and Los Angeles where it is warm and sunny, you always need protection for your eyes. I love a good pair of black cat eye sunglasses and ones that are made well like these ones from Prada will keep you stylish whether you are on the slopes or on the beach or just driving carpool for your kids. They are made of a durable black acetate frame with 100% UV protection. Think Audrey Hepburn when you wear these or ski bunny. Whatever it is these sunglasses will be something you can wear daily.
Prada Leather Saffiano Tote Bag with Crossbody StrapÂ – you have seen the larger version of this tote on shows like Suits and Scandal on the lead actresses, but have you seen this smaller version yet? I love this smaller version of this tote because this Fall 2013 season is all about a smaller crossbody version of the bags you know in love from Celine, Gucci, Fendi, Chanel to now Prada. This bag is great because it now comes in almost 10 colors and has the same indestructable grained leather that you have grown to love in the larger version. The great thing about the smaller version is its long crossbody strap and its smaller more portable size for those trips that you are taking before summer is over. When I was in Thailand last week I saw someone from France wearing a crossbody version of this particular bag on my flight to Koh Samui and even with her shorts and t shirt her outfit looked impeccable with the addition of this great Prada saffiano tote bag in the smaller size. Whether you are traveling this summer or just looking for a new fresh bag for fall, this Prada saffiano in the smaller size is one of my favorite picks.
My favorite color in this bag is the turquoise. It comes in about 10 other colors. What is your favorite?
The 2nd day at LuckyFABB was packed full of activities that included visiting the gifting suites for JustFab, Covet Fashion App, Dylan’s Candy Bar and Le Sport Sac, AG Jeans, Yoshi Samra, Thursday Friday, and others.
Betsey Johnson was hanging out meeting bloggers to talk about her StyleNetwork Show and while we all sipped Milkshakes from Dylan’s Candy Bar’s Â & Le Sport Sac’s Milkshake Bar and eating candy, we learned about the up and coming new styles from each brand.
My Outfit of the Day at LuckyFABB day 2 was a fun outfit that I got a few compliments on that included aÂ Quilted Faux Leather Chanel Looking Jacket.Â I thought I would share the outfit of the day information with you since I always want to know what people are wearing if I I like their outfits. As a 40 year old mom of an 8 year old, I always love it when I can wear fun functional fashion that is a mix of high low fashion as the saying goes…
Chanel like faux leather jacket was $44 at Forever 21, Striped shirt is 100% cashmere from Calypso St. Barth on sale from $285 for $139 online only, Prada black saddle bag is from 2010 but I found something similar hereÂ from Prada, Vince leather leggings are a current season favorite, shoes are Maison Martin Margiela peep toe ankle booties from this past winter, Samsung Galaxy smartphone, Essie Splash of Grenadine nail color, evil eye bracelet by Sylva and Cie and Cartier Love bracelet not seen under jacket sleeves.
Having the perfect bag for tea time is always crucial whether you are going to the Peninsula Hotel or the St. Regis. In 2002 Prada came out with a collection of bags that were the perfect lady like bags with the frame and the top handle. For Spring 2013 they are bringing back a modern version of that lady like bag ala Mad Men. This season is all about tennis outfits and sneakers and dressing the part of the country club set.
So whether you are packing for that February ski week vacation or planning your trip for Spring break, grab the bag so you are all prepared.
Here is the 2002 Prada top handle bag that I found on a resale site for $995.
I have seen every high top wedge sneaker style out there and this one caught my eye because it is just so awesome. They actually look like a pair of sneakers that I owned from Adidas at one point – you know that clean looking sneaker with just 3 stripes on the side you can play tennis with?
Anyhow, the fact that Prada took that very clean looking model and put in a 3 inch hidden wedge and added white patent leather and their Prada touches makes this sneaker very special indeed. The big plus is the wedge of course but the look of the sneaker is definitely a must have for Spring 2013. Say you are petite and want a little more height for when you go out or when you are just out and about, why not get these?
These look like sneakers not a pair of shoes that have heels. You can run around wearing these with a pair of LuLuLemon wonderunder crop pants and a black sweater and you will look so cool. OR you can wear them with a pair of skinny jeans and a fun button up top and you are all set to go. However you wear it, these are cool.

Here I am wearing them at my daughter’s tennis practice yesterday.
For Spring 2013 Prada made a collection of small functional affordable bags for the new young customer to Prada or the Prada customer who wants just a little something to hold keys, phone, and lipstick for a night out or for Ski week travel this Spring.
One of my favorite pieces is this little clutch crossbody number with a detachable strap that can be folded and tucked into the bag when you pack it away for short trips. The small bag features a gold Prada logo and gold hardware against the scratch resistant saffiano leather that is great for taking with you when you need to run out for a walk with the dog or to run some errands.
This little number is definitely a must have for any Prada collection. Get the Prada crossbody mini clutch for $595 now.
Color is big this season and into Spring 2013. All the designers are showing bags in lots of brights from greens, yellows, reds, blues, to purples. I am loving the lilac, purple, violet spring bags trend for Spring 2013. Everything is so fresh for spring and with the floral fashion trend, it is like you are wearing a bouquet of flowers this coming season.
There are some great picks for Spring 2013 from designers like Balenciaga, Chloe, Anya Hindmarch, Oscar De La Renta, Proenza Schouler, Prada, Rebecca Minkoff, and Modcloth.
Check out some of our favorites here:
Chloe violet cross body saddle bag is on saleÂ for 20% off. Love this bag because it is definitely one of those bags you will want to pull out of your closet all spring and summer. Think of it with a white blouse and jeans carried messenger style. This bag will hold everything and elevate your simple jean and shirt outfit to the next level so you can go right into the Per Se for lunch with no issue if you so choose.
Modcloth I like it like that bagÂ for $54.99 can be used as a clutch or as a shoulder bag. Its flat body style and printed reptile detail on its lilac background and gold hardware makes this bag a no brainer for Spring 2013.
Balenciaga City Arena bag in Glycine with rose gold hardware is an iconic bag that can be used for school, work, play, and travel. This versatile bag is easily going to become your go to bag because it is such a great looking bag that can take a little bit of distress and still keep looking great.
Anya Hindmarch Marano Dancer LED-lit glitter-finished clutch in purpleÂ is 70% off from $795 to $238.50 and so chic for the holidays. The color is subtle but eye catching. This clutch can easily go to drinks with friends or a holiday party.
Proenza Schouler PS11 is now a classic. The hard calf leather gives the bag a sheen that sets up the very cool looking hardware on the bag. The bag can be worn crossbody or shoulder bag style. The new violet color is just so enigmatic that you will want to wear one of your coat capes with a fedora when you wear this bag.
Oscar De La Renta Small Dex bag is a perfect lady’s satchel bag with a top handle and shoulder strap. If you want classic ODLR updated in this pretty violet color look no further than the Small Dex bag. It is very chic.
Prada Vernice Tote in Purple is a great bag that comes in a durable leather that is scratch resistant. If you are a mom with young children this is the bag for you. You will be able to take this Prada bag everywhere without worrying about scuffs. You can take this bag from boardroom to homeroom with no issues.
It is that holiday gift giving time of year again and you are probably getting invitations to parties and booking trips to go see your families. Gift giving is always a stressful time of the year and you will need to figure out what to get your husband’s brother’s wife or your mother in law’s boyfriend for holiday gifts, but while doing that why not take a little time and give yourself something special for this time of year. You work hard you deserve it. What is it that you have wanted all year? Is it a Hermes birkin bag? A pair of Prada shoes? a Rag & Bone jacket?
This year we thought we would make gift giving even more rewarding for you to shop designers for yourself for the holidays by thinking Green. Why not look at items that may have been pre loved? When you buy something preowned you can get quite a great deal. You can also find items that are very hard to find or no longer being made. So many great finds can be found when you are not looking to shop for your favorite designers in the same place where everyone else is shopping. You may end up with a highly coveted piece that the designer no longer makes. Also you may find something for a loved one to fill your gift giving quota.
Case in point – the following items were rare finds on Ebay.com that I thought you may be interested in. They are all designers and in great condition. Think GREEN this holiday and save.
