New day, new clutch ♥ While I love my big bags, I am kind of addicted to clutches gone daytime at the moment. With big bags, I am always tempted to hoard my entire life in there, and with a slightly smaller bag I am a little more picky of what I carry around. Yesterday, I met up with my sister to grab some groceries for our Sunday night pasta dinner and the bag of choice was my new Victoria Khoss foldover clutch in electric blue. These pretty bags are handmade in NYC with special attention to high quality fabrics (umm how cute is the polkadot lining??) and are currently also available at Steffl Department Store in Vienna. They come in all sorts of beautiful colors, and I was super torn between the bright pink (which would have also worked perfectly with this outfit) and the blue. In the end, I went with the blue because it is a color my closet is still missing at the moment. For everyone that doesn’t live in Vienna, Victoria has kindly offered free shipping for all of Europe with this code: “SHIPVKFREE”. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend & happy Monday!
This year, Christmas definitely came early when Gucci surprised me with one of the most gorgeous bags I have ever seen. It is absolute perfection in my eyes, and I can’t wait to wear it for Christmas, New Year’s Eve, the holiday party at work and just about every other occasion coming up. I am pretty picky when it comes to clutches (I prefer big bags because of all my stuff), but this one was love at first sight. You guys know that I am a sucker for anything that sparkles and this clutch one also happens to have the perfect size. Some may consider it kind of big, but that is actually what I adore about it. The shape is simply perfect, and I can even fit my big wallet + keys + phone + lip balm + gum + … And the best part? It also works during the day, as you guys can see with this casual daytime outfit. To make a long story short: it is an absolute love affair!
I am so excited to tell you guys that I have something very special in store for you this year. This is the 4th holiday season that I get to experience with Bikinis & Passports, and I thought it was about time to give back a little! As you know, brands are always looking to work with bloggers and I am lucky to receive many items free of charge – well, now it is your turn :)
I literally cannot get over the wonderful weather we’ve had this November so far. “Sweater weather” at it’s best, and jackets or coats are (almost) not even necessary! With temperatures around 15°C I’ve been running around town with loarfers, my favorite sweaters, and, my personal highlight: the insanely cute Sofia Coppola Bag BB. I had the opportunity to style the newest version of the SC bag in bb, and while there are tons of pretty colors to choose from, I went with the “blanc casse” because it works perfectly with my current favorite sweater by Hallhuber. Another color I am absolutely in love with is the “azur”, a super pretty light blue (as seen on Anna’s blog), but I feel like the off-white bag may be a bit more versatile. What do you guys think?
