I am so excited to finally share a project that I’ve been working on with a great group of bloggers. I collaborated with Minnie + George to style one of their gorgeous handbags for their Spring 2015 lookbook. Lori, the designer behind Minnie + George, creates beautiful leather accessories and bags in Portland, Oregon. Most of her leather is sourced locally and every single one of her creations are timeless and classic. I love her minimalist designs and they are all handmade! For 10 days, from April 27th until May 8th, 10 different bloggers are showcasing how they styled their Minnie + George bag and then the digital lookbook will go live on their website. Tomorrow, the gorgeous and stylish Oby Grace of I Spy Oby will be featuring hers so make sure to visit her blog. This tote is amazing. It’s massive and roomy; just the way I like totes to be! You can use it as an overnight bag or for a day out in the city and it fits EVERYTHING. It’s completely hand stitched and I love the contrasting brown straps against the navy. Sorry for the massive photo overload but New York has been gorgeous lately and Phil sent me so many photos to choose from! Central Park has been filled with incredible cherry blossoms and Phil and I managed to get photos on the iconic Bow Bridge right before it went under construction.
I love my new Free People skirt. I saw it on sale at Nordstrom (it’s sold out now) and I bought it because… stripes, pockets, the adorable tie detail? Yeah, I needed it! The next day I was in Nordstrom Rack and saw it even more on sale, for almost half the price I paid, and they offered to do a price adjustment when I mentioned it to someone who worked there! I just pulled up my e-mail with my order number and was able to get it for the price at Nordstrom Rack. For some reason, the same skirt on the Free People website is listed cheaper at Lord & Taylor here (Nordstrom price was also the same before the sale). 6PM has it for slightly cheaper in a different color here too. I am confused about the different prices but if you plan on getting it, you can try your local Nordstrom Rack or Lord & Taylor. I decided to style this striped skirt with more stripes because stripes on stripes on stripes is always a good decision… in my opinion anyway. 😉
