Designer vs. High street

It’s not because I can’t afford designer bags that I love high street, NO!!! I love high street and I like designer bags, ’cause high street is just so wearable for a middle class professional/career woman like me.

And when I compare the Givenchy Antigona with this Business bag by Zara, I see no reason to change my ways.

This doesn’t mean I don’t splurge, ’cause I do.  Especially when it’s a special day like my birthday, wedding anniversary or those days when I’m depressed and in need of retail therapy.  🙂

Still on Zara – Fresh in !

I hear a lot of peeps saying that they don’t really acquire bags like they acquire shoes or tees but it is my opinion that no outfit is complete without the right bag. Little wonder, we are loving these bags by Zara

To start us off, let’s look at this Zipper beauty.  Practical and trending now, this bag works well for formal and casual outfits.

To Buy: A Versatile Denim Shirt

now, this is what style is about…

Cute, Smart and Organized

The Versatile Denim Shirt
A couple of weekends ago, my Mom walked around Kohl’s with a denim shirt over her arm, indecisive.  “How can I buy a denim shirt?  I feel like I just made myself throw out all my denim shirts!”
I know, I know…although it was really probably the mid-nineties the last time they were going strong.  And we all looked pretty good, remember?
But here we were again, shopping for denim shirts.  And yes, we’re going to look pretty good.  😉
Dress it up, dress it down, they’re back and better than ever.  Three Looks for a $40 American Eagle Outfitters denim top:
