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 personally not a fan of winter wear – I think it is super hard to dress nice, because with temperatures around the freezing point, the only thing on my mind is keeping warm. However, every once in a while, I come across a piece of clothing that really makes me appreciate the cold weather! This was the case with this coat by French Connection, which I found on GIRISSIMA. It is absolut perfection in my eyes. Not only is it a gorgeous off-white (which is such a nice change to all the black winter jackets I have), but it also has amazing details that make it a special piece: the material mix, amazing cut & the off-centered zipper! With a jacket or coat like that, you don’t really need anything else. I went for all black, which makes the beautiful coat stand out even more, including the super adorable Carpena Elda cross body bag. I wore the bag twice already last weekend for going out – it is the perfect companion for a bit of dancing, trust me.
It looks like the time for real winter outfits has finally come. Fall was good to us this year and I was running around in my loafers for most of November, now, however, the days are gray-in-gray and the temperatures are dropping. But with my new boots, I am ready to brace the cold and on the upside: toffee nut lattes are back at Starbucks. So really, things could be worse! Right?
