#1) Kate Spade New York Cedar Street Maise handbag. I purchased this a year ago for my mom as a Mother's Day gift. She loved the shape of the purse, but felt the color was "too young" for her, so she told me to keep it for myself. (By the way, I love my mom dearly, but let's just say she is hard to shop for, so now when I get her a gift I make sure it's something I like too, just in case...). I've been using it since, and not a week goes by without me getting at least one compliment on this purse, especially during the spring and summer. The purse is practical - works as a hand-bag or across the shoulder. The best part is its color - Maraschino. Other fabulous colors are Geranium and Fresh Air.
#2) Kate Spade New York Marit Floral Print Pencil Skirt. This was my first purchase from Zappos Couture, and boy was I glad I purchased that skirt. This skirt looks stunning with all sorts of tops, from a white lacey crop top to a green silk tank top to a magenta button up shirt. It's versatile - meaning you can dress it up for a wedding, dress it down for a weekend girls' brunch outfit, or walk the perfect line between confidence and fashionable elegance as a corporate outfit. Another plus of this skirt is that it travels well, no need to iron after taking it out of the suitcase.
#3) Stuart Weitzman Openleaf sandals in Trebol Suede. Every once in awhile you see a pair of shoes and it's love at first sight. It hits you so hard you can't stop thinking about it and you just have to walk into that boutique, and slip it on - knowing there's no question if it's coming home with you because it feels, and looks that good. Ok, that sounded a little dirty - but I meant it to sound sexy. Because these heels are damn sexy. They look good with anything: cropped jeans, a summer dress, a floral pencil skirt. And in case you're wondering, this was absolutely a splurge for me. It was my mother's day gift combined with anniversary gift from my husband. My husband was relieved he didn't need to stress about reading my mind and getting me that "perfect" gift - because I did; it's a win-win. But for you, it doesn't need to be such a crazy splurge because it's on sale right now for 50% off!!!
By the way, what happens when you wear these 3 pieces together? Heads turn because darling, you look stunning!
