January Beauty Box: Ipsy

For some reason, I started this blog post on the 24th, and haven’t, until now, gotten around to finishing it. So here I go. Here was January’s Ipsy bag.

Add a Wing to that Bag

I haven’t really done one of these posts in a while, and I don’t know why. Guess I haven’t had the time to read any magazines.. But to get back on the ball, here’s a current/upcoming trend for our handbags.

It may not be news to you, but winged bags are in for Spring. It’s not a huge change to bags, just a subtle difference. You’re going to start to see more fabric up by the zipper to create a “winged” look on the more structured handbags.

If you’re wanting to add this trend to your collection, I’ve scoured the web to find quite a few bags of the trend. There’s the high-end Prada and the lower Danielle Nicole.

So, here’s the list:

Prada –¬†Saffiano Large Bi-Color Tote Bag, Talco/Visone – $1890

Lust Item: Chloe’s Marcie Small Calfskin Satchel

I saw this last time I was in Nordstrom and have been in love with it since. Every time I see it I just want to put it on a credit card and have it in my possession! It’s so gorgeous, all leather, and a decent size. The dimensions are:¬†14″W x 10 1/2″H x 4 1/2″D. Big enough for everything you need plus a book/tablet!! I love this color too. It’s called Nut, kinda funny :) The downside… it’s $1795. Maybe I’ll start saving up for it… It seems like a classy bag that could last you for a long time.

Seeing Double: Longchamp and Nordstrom

I love coming across items that I do a double-take and wonder “haven’t I seen something like that before?!” The last time I did that was a pair of Alexander McQueen look-a-likes at Charlotte Russe.

I’ve found another look-a-like. This time it’s not as close as the McQueen-Russe connection, but it’s still pretty close! It’s a look-a-like of the infamous Longchamp Le Pliage tote made famous by its usefulness on a college campus. It’s lightweight and perfect for carrying a notebook, pens, and a book or two. Plus, it zips completely and because of its nylon exterior won’t be damaged by getting caught in the rain.

Anyway, compare the original Longchamp Le Pliage tote to the one I found in the sale section at Nordstrom…..

Longchamp – Le Pliage Large Shoulder Tote – $128

The Nordstrom option…

Nordstrom – Getaway Tote – $33.98

getawaytote

This one is almost the same exact dimensions, on sale for $33 (normally $58). The only real difference is this is canvas rather than nylon. Still if you want a cute similarity, for $100 less, head over to Nordstroms website and pick up one of these look-a-likes.

Miss Wu is at Nordstrom

Jason Wu has launched a contemporary line called Miss Wu, exclusively for Nordstrom. The line is inspired by the 60s with a color palette of black, white, yellow, and blue. I did a post on this line back in July (here), when they first announced it and now it is finally in stores and online!

Etsy Find: Wool Woven Coat

From time to time I find myself browsing Etsy, (even if I never do actually buy anything), but today I feel like I found an item that might break that streak:

etsycoat

This gorgeous handmade wool coat made by happyfamilyjudy comes in Khaki, Orange, Green or Pink, in Small – XXLarge for $86.99. While the price is almost $90, it comes all the way from China and there is a lot of material and detail to the dress. For comparison, I just purchased a plain red peacoat from the mall for $60… why not pay another $22 for a ridiculous cute one?

As always, click the picture for the etsy page.

I had to share this find… Isn’t it just gorgeous?!?!
