City-chic Chanel

July 21, 2010

Rachel Bilson always mixes high and low in clever, understated ways. Her outfit consists of a simple white t-shirt, cutoff jean shorts, a black cardigan and black Ray Bans. It’s easy to put together the same ensemble on the cheap; but it’s of course the addition of the black lambskin Chanel bag that elevates her look to celebrity-worthy.

This just proves that a perfect accessory splurge can make an entire outfit look like it cost a million bucks. Some things are just worth saving up for, and a classic black Chanel bag will absolutely never go out of style. If you’re looking for something similar to Rachel’s, try this Chanel Ritz jumbo patent quilted flap bag.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow’s First Finds at noon…it’s a collection of new-to-the-site Chanel bags that will have you drooling!

Say it with Stripes

July 1, 2010

For some, the Fourth of July means red, white and blue. But I’m more distracted by the stars and stripes part of the equation–like Rihanna in this great black and white striped blouse. Stripes have been everywhere for summer, especially in simple t-shirts and on great printed dresses.

Want to integrate this look into your accessories? I am coveting this mini Chanel flap in fabulous black and white. It would be so cute for a night out–it only fits your ID, credit card phone and lipstick, but it leaves you totally free to dance the night away.
