Travel-attire-winterWhen traveling for work do you ever wonder what is the right attire to wear? Oftentimes we think being comfy in sweats is the way to go. However, if you are traveling for work with other colleagues and you work in fashion or in finance, the rules may not be so relaxed since how you dress is also part of your job. If you have been traveling with the same college suitcase you have been using since college, now is the time to invest in carry on luggage. Carry on luggage like your handbag is something that is essential in a travel work wardrobe. A good pair of black ankle boots, a black blazer,  a day handbag, and a night shoulder bag are all essentials. Oh and don’t forget a great iPhone case. Something fun is ok for your phone case.

In the collage:

Louis Vuitton black Pouchette for $2,880 or the very similar Saint Laurent Monogram shoulder bag with chain are great investment bags to own. Alternatives that look similar for less are by Tory Burch, $595 and Rebecca Minkoff, $275.

Givenchy satchel bag with in its hard grained leather with shoulder straps is the perfect bag for $2,280 to carry all your office essentials from plane to hotel to office. An alternative for less is the Kate Spade‘s satchel bag with shoulder strap for $378.

Prada silver carry on suitcase made of their durable grained leather is on sale for $999 and is regulation airplane size to carry on your flights. An alternatives for less is the 3 piece metallic silver suitcases by Kensie on sale from $625 for $169.99.

Ellery wide leg ankle dressy jeans are very fashion forward for $790. A less dramatic alternative would be the DL Premium Denim flared jeans for $178.

Nicholas velvet blazer is perfect to double as your night time dinner jacket once you get off the plane on sale for $417 from $595. River Island makes a blazer that is very modern and chic for $120.

Ugg Pom Pom beanie hat is essential when traveling this time of year. It is either raining or snowing everywhere you go. Bring it along with you to stay cozy on the plane and off the plane. You can always get one for half the price at Topshop for $26.

Casetify has the More Issues Than Vogue iphone case and many others for $40. You need an iPhone case when traveling in case you drop your phone.

Stuart Weitzman black ankle boots for $525. An alternative would be Steve Madden suede ankle boots for $78.

prada-key-ringWhat is it about mini things that we all love so much? A tiny Prada mini backpack on a key ring in their iconic classic nylon backpack shape seems like a must have for the season. I feel like I just need to have it to hang next to my Tory Burch fur pom pom keychain on my bag. What am I gonna put in it? Probably nothing. It is just so cute.

Prada Leather Saffiano Tote Bag with Crossbody Strap

on August 14th, 2013

Prada Leather Saffiano Tote Bag with Crossbody Strap – 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?

Prada Saffiano tote bag with crossbody strap for $1650.

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  & 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 a Quilted Faux Leather Chanel Looking Jacket. 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 here 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.

The Prada Spazzalato Doctor Bag is $2950 and you can get a gift card of $375 at the gift card event starting today.

Here is the 2002 Prada top handle bag that I found on a resale site for $995.

Prada Leather Wedge Sneakers in White

on February 5th, 2013
0 Comment

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.

Get the Prada Wedge Sneakers in White Leather now for Spring 2013.

Here I am wearing them at my daughter’s tennis practice yesterday.
