Recap: Handbags... and a Surprise!


It's the end of the week already, ladies!
Because it's Saturday, let's go ahead
and do a quick recap of the pointers
from this week's trend topic: handbags.

This week has been all about the bags of the season.

But when it comes to this season's bags, there aren't
a lot of rules... just bring your personal style,
and, of course, a healthy dose of adventure!

Hardware

Embrace hardware accents. Toggle clasps, rivets,
eyelets, and metal edging are a good place to start.
And let's not forget chain shoulder straps.
Chains are a popular hardware choice for the season!

Bright Colors & Patterns

Bring in the spring and summer with a bright
statement color. A bold bag is the perfect way
to add a little bit of zip and zing to any outfit.
Choose a bag in one of this season's colors,
or opt for an off-beat, unique pattern scheme.
Personally, we're loving cork and pattern mixing!

The Carry-All

There's one bag style that's really a must, however.
The carry-all tote... whether you're headed to work,
off on a weekend road trip, or just out running errands,
this roomy bag has space for all the necessities,
and then some! Keep it fun by choosing a tote
with in of this season's favorite colors!

A Punch of Color

Brighton - neutral stripe and graphic bloom.
This week has been a week devoted to the handbags
of the season. Yesterday, we touched on the ubiquitous
carry-all-tote, and to be honest, we just can't get enough
of the versatile bag! The shape and make of the bag
is much the same from year to year, but the 
colors and styles are what shake it up.

Be Unique
Neutral bags are fine and well,
but colors and patterns much more fun!
Opt for a bag with an unusual pattern,
a graphic print, or unexpected color details.
Check out the bag above... we're loving the combo
 of a bold graphic bloom with neutral stripes.

Live in Color
Life is too short for boring accessories.
Brighten up your spring and summer with
punch of color. If your closet tends
toward neutral colors, a bold handbag
is the perfect way to bring contrast.
We're in love with the irregular stripes
of the Brighton handbag pictured below... 

Brighton - bright stripe tote.

What is your favorite look for a summer bag?
What colors do you find yourself drawn to?
Do you search for patterns, or tend toward solids?

The Carry-All Tote

Neiman Marcus carry-all tote!
This week is devoted to the bags of the season!
If you're gearing up for the spring and summer,
here's one bag you don't want to miss out on...
t h e   c a r r y - a l l   t o t e

Whether you're headed to work, out running errands,
or off on a road trip, this bag is the bag to have.
For starters, it's definitely big enough to house
all the necessities... with room to spare.
But better yet, it does so in a stylish way!

Make It Your Own
This season, add an extra dose of fun
by choosing a brightly colored tote.
Leather, although luxurious, can prove
exceptionally heavy in a bag this size.
Opt instead for faux leather, sleek vinyl,
or textured burlap. Add extra interest with
cut-out designs, contrasting stripes of color,
and embroidered details. And keep up with
the season's hardware trend by choosing
a tote with chain straps!

Do you love carry-all tote bags?
What is your favorite look for the tote?
What embellishments do you love?

Meanwhile, it's Wednesday... which means
that it's jewelry day at the Boutique!
Swing by for a cup of fresh brewed
Starbucks coffee, and take a peek at
the 60+ new treasures on display!

Keep It Low-Key

Street Level cork clutch.
This week is devoted to the bags of the season!
This spring and summer, there aren't a lot of rules.
Just as long as the bag is unique, and you bring
your personal style and a sense of adventure!

For Starters
Keep things low key with a grab-and-go clutch handbag.
It's just big enough to hold your wallet, your phone,
your keys, and your chapstick (and maybe a small book).
A turn-lock envelope style is always classic, but keep it
fresh and updated with an unusual color or material.
We're loving the bright colors in this speckled cork!

Hardware Love
Add a touch of hardware with chain shoulder straps
or chain accents. This season, chain straps have been
spotted on bags of all types, from large tote bags
to small shoulder bags. This Street Level clutch bag
(pictured above) features a chain cross-body strap!

-
Meanwhile, it's Tuesday... and it's time for the
Last Chance Rack! Shop items that have been marked down
to their lowest prices, and are only out on display for
one more day. Plus, there's fresh brewed coffee waiting!

Recap: Peach, Green, and Rose


The weekend is here already, ladies!
Because today is Saturday, let's go ahead
and do a quick recap of this week's pointers.
This week has been all about color trends
with the spotlight on peach, green, and rose.
(To link to the post for each color, just click
the heading at the top of each recap section...)

Think of it as this season's take on coral.
It's warm, friendly, inviting, and yet bold.
Peach plays well with gray, blue, and navy.
For an unexpected twist, pair with pale pink.
And peach also works well as an accent color...
try adding a pop with a peach toned handbag
or a gold necklace with peach-toned stones.

It's the new update on spring green.
Think of the light, vivid green of new leaves.
This bright tint of green is cool and refreshing,
and it plays best with blues... whether you opt
for ice blue, powder blue, or deep royal blue.
And of course, navy is always a classic pairing.

Pastels are a must for the spring,
especially when it comes to pale pink.
It's everything light, feminine, and lovely.
Try pairing with powder blue or lilac gray.
Balance out the femininity of the tone
by choosing menswear inspired styles,
such as a rose blazer or trousers.

-
Which of these color trends is your favorite?
What colors do you love to wear together?
-
We've put out nearly 400 new items this week alone...
swing by for a cup of fresh brewed Starbucks coffee
and take a peek at the new treasures on display!
