The Perfect Purse.

When I think of a perfect purse , there are a few key words that come to mind: stylish, classic & functional.

The perfect purse is the purse you’re able to dress up, dress down and simply grab and go.

When Oliver Bilou contacted me I was thrilled!  I had been dying to find a black  bag that was big enough but not to big that it looked like I was struggling to carry my own bag.

Their Mia bag was my OBVIOUS pick & fit for me.

It’s black, quilted and structured, need I say more ?

More often than not, I realize I don’t have very many staple pieces in my wardrobe. When it comes to my closet I too often opted out of neutrals and basics, of course over time this has changed.

I didn’t own a fancier jacket or a white “blouse”until recently. I had a grey trench , and other white shirts but I realized I didn’t have 2 very BASIC staple pieces in my wardrobe.

When Sash Boutique contacted me, I decided to make a game plan.

A proper one , to get some basic pieces back in my wardrobe.

Their online boutique offers a huge selection of fabulous pieces, from dainty bras to fancy coats it’s an amazing “one stop shop”.

I was able to find what I now call my “favorite coat“, a trendy pair of black suede leggings, and a beautiful white blouse.

The pieces were quality, classic and elegant. Clearly my game plan worked. I will definitely be shopping with them again !

Curating a look book: Shoptiques.

When Shoptiques asked me to curate a Christmas Lookbook for them I was thrilled, they not only have a massive selection but BEAUTIFUL pieces.

I had never created a lookbook before so I was pretty nervous about the whole thing, how it would work, and how it would look once it was completed.

Shoptiques made it a very simple and hassle free experience! *phew*

I was able to pick tons of goodies that had a bit of a bold twist, this season I’ve been taking a lot of inspiration from Gatsby. As always the glitter and glam makes the festivities so much more “festive”!

You can view & shop my entire lookbook here !
