 Hi lovelies! So I decided to make Wednesday my mid-week “WED favorites” day. Get it? There’s no rhyme or reason, just some of my most favorite pretties from the past few days.

Think of it as a Mid-week round-up of all things fun, fabulous and very right now. 

O.K. class. Let’s get started… 

 

New monogrammed items dropped into my e-mail box from The Palm Gifts today! Love the aprons and the new boat totes!

Also, I LOVE the total focus on ACCESSORIES (FROOF) happening at Anthropologie. It’s wonderful! I love all of it. Sigh.

While I was home shopping at the little- shop that isn’t anymore, I bought myself a pretty patterned Vera umbrella for spring in their new yellow bird pattern. I love it.

I also really love this. I was Etsy browsing again… really nothing new, and came across this perfect vintage inspired pearl and gold charm bracelet from Glint by Mich. I’m kind of a closet beach freak stuck in the concrete jungle of the city, so I think this- subtle gold beach charms and perfect little pearls- are charming… get it. Ha. These are totally sold out, which is sad, but maybe they’ll be more? It’s called the Hampton Lane Ivory Pearl Bracelet with Sea Charms- AND get this… inspired by Grace Kelly in Rear Window. Amazing.

I also got a sweet little fragrance package from Lulu Beauty last night! Can’t wait to test out their fun and flirty fragrances and give you the lowdown on what’s aisle worthy!

 

Happy Hump-Day!

I have a few vices… bags, shoes and dresses happen to be at the top of that list. I can’t help it. I know have bags I don’t know what to do with a dress full of dresses I haven’t worn, and shoes… well you can never really have too many. Anyway, tote bags are a really great gift to give your bridesmaids to say thank you- especially if you fill them with super fun things. They also make great welcome baskets for a girls  (bachelorette party/shower) weekend. There are so many bags out there, so I just wanted to share a few of my favorites with you here!

Unique Wedding Boutique by The Palm Gifts has a great assortment of  monogrammed, preppy and super pleasing bags in tons of colors with polka dot ribbons, stripes, etc. They’re adorable and you can customize for each one of your bridesmaids! Preppy Monogrammed Gifts also has a wide selection of similar products worth checking out.

I love Vera. Vera Bradley has tons of totes in a million sizes, but this one is right around “Affordable” and you can still fill it with fun goodies and not feel bad about it. These bags last FOREVER. I got one as a HIGH-SCHOOL graduation gift  and I still have it today. Trust me that was a long time ago.

I’ll give you some ideas about when to put in them in the next few days 🙂

Clearly, I love personalizing things. Obviously. These personalized bags from LaFlor are ADORABLE. They’re an Etsy seller. You know I love Etsy, and I seriously LOVE these bags. This is such an adorable option to match the fabric to your girls. Fill it with makeup, lip gloss and moisturizers and stuff into a cute welcome basket or offer up to your bridesmaids at your bachelorette party as a little thank you! They’re made from 100% cotton and range from $8- $12. Plus if you order more than 2 bags, LaFlor offers a 10% discount!

I myself have never been much a bag whore, a purse moocher or a handbag hooker. No, no, dresses and shoes are my vices.  But my cousin, now she’s a girl who likes a good bag, and to an extent she’s right. A bag can totally make or break an outfit. (This, is where I’m kind of lying because I had the same black Nine West bag for about 6 years and just recently splurged on a Longchamp bag, which some not-so-hot suburbian housewife in my childhood hometown TJ Maxx referred to as an oversize diaper bag. Seriously? Bite me bitch. That’s half my paycheck.) I digress.

However for the Sara’s in all of us…I give you my bag post. Some of the best of the best this season from the shower satchel to the bachelorette party clutch. And for those of you who are really looking for a steal I suggest you start at the website Bag, Borrow or Steal, which is an instant fashion fix for anyone who can’t afford to buy a designer bag but wouldn’t mind carrying one around for a week or two.  Here, you can essentially “rent” or borrow a bag to match your latest look and if you so choose, steal it (you do have to pay for it) and never give it back. Kind of awesome.

I also want to mention that vintage shops, second hand stores and good will are really great for fabulous vintage finds. They can be very rare, but definitely worth looking for. I have a white beaded bag that belonged to my grandmother that I literally have carried to every wedding I’ve ever been to and I have gotten rave reviews time and again. That said, raid your grandmothers and maybe even mother’s closets. You never know what you’ll find behind the shoe boxes on the top shelf.

But some more of my favorites this season.

Sabina Quilted Clutch from South Moon Under for $148

Whiting & Davis Small Mesh Bag from South Moon Under ( I love this because someone in my childhood hand one and it’s so vintage and fabulous to ever come across as gaudy. Also available in Silver.) $54

Leather Fold Over Clutch from Nine West now on sale for $119.99

Printed Fabric Clutch from Talbots $48. ( Ok, I know. I totally get made fun of on occasion for perusing the online and sometimes in store goods of Talbots- because it’s “where my friends mom’s shop” BUT…lately they have been “oh so lilly” and a little prep can go a long way in my world. So… deal.)

Latico Satchel from Piperlime for $175

Beirn Large Envelope Clutch from Piper Lime for $298
