Currently Craving: Shopping For A New Wallet

Slide1

Money, money, money, must be funny, in the rich man’s world.

Shopping for a new wallet is probably as hard for me as shopping for jeans. I somehow have this OCD process as to which my wallet needs to meet certain credentials to make the cut. With that I’m dreading coming to terms with needing a new wallet. I currently have a super fun Kate Spade wallet in this highlighter neon yellow/green colour but the fabric in the coin holder has ripped and the zipper get’s stuck on it so I basically can’t use that part and paying to fix that fabric is a little silly, but I just love my little wallet. The thing is I have a very specific style I like when it comes to wallets. I really don’t like the zipper wallets, I only like trifolds or bifolds where I can see everything in front of me and easily pull out cards and money to pay. I also like when the card slots are vertical because again I just find it easier to see everything and pull things out quicker. I also really like when the coin pouch is on the outside preferably on the back of the wallet. I also don’t like “cheap” wallets; designer wallets just last longer. Think about how often you whip your wallet out and then toss it carelessly in your bag…A LOT! I’d like the things I purchase to last, so I spend more to last longer. Think about all the “cheaper” wallets you’ve bought over the years and how many times you’ve probably had to replace it, it’s just not worth it. Splurge a little and the payoff is there I swear.

I’m really not a very picky person but for some reason I’m very particular when it comes to wallets. As long as it meets most of those above credentials and it’s not a zip around wallet then we’re on our way to the mall, or the bank to pay off the designer Visa charge.

1) Coach slim trifold wallet: The inside of this perfect emerald green wallet is a gorgeous rose graffiti print that I am obsessed with. That is number one on my list for a reason!     (I think it may be the winner)

2) Gucci leather french flap wallet: As a fan of  good Feng Shui, red wallets bring luck and money; something you’ll need after you purchase this wallet. I’m also a huge fan of smaller wallets so I don’t have to condense into a card holder when I switch to smaller bags.

3) Frye harness leather continental wallet via Nordstrom: Super simple and sleek, I am digging this minimalism/functionality combo.

4) Chloe alphabet long wallet: Every girl wants to be a #chloegirls and I need a little dusty rose Chloe in my life.

5) Kate Spade New York ‘cameron street-stacy’ textured leather wallet via Nordstrom: Classic style and no fuss inside just like I like it!

6) Mackage ATLAS envelope wallet- Canadian brand in a Canadian colour. Yes and Yes.

7) Liebeskind ‘SLAMR’ wallet-ON SALE and so fierce. Great leather for a great price and super cute mustard yellow colour and snakeskin texture combo.

Currently Craving: Summer 2017 Accessories

slide1

Accessories are where I have most of my fun. As you can tell from the name I wear loads of black and that’s not wrong. I try to mix it up here and there but the accessories departments is  where I shine, sparkle, fringe-out, fluff (all of the above). I really like to keep it interesting as much as I can, and what is true to my style. My all black attire usually works as my blank canvas and from there the options are endless to add on all the pizazz. If you want to attempt adding more colour or more fashion-forward, interesting statement pieces start with your accessories; they’re basically a gateway drug!

Get Her Look: Carrie Bradshaw

Slide1

Every fashion girl has a style crush on Carrie Bradshaw, whether or not they like to admit it. I am not one to hide my adoration for Bradshaw and the endless nights of re-watching Sex and the City episodes for outfit inspo. In my opinion Bradshaw is one of the best characters with ever-changing, risk taking style on television that is still classic and inspiring today. We have Patricia Field and Sarah Jessica Parker’s friendship to thank for some the most memorable sartorial looks on the show. Designer name dropping in every episode (have you seen that video lately?),these brand names are in the vocab of fashionistas that can and can’t afford them from D&G, Halston Heritage, to Calvin Klein. Sex and the City made being a fashion risk taker desirable; as well as guilty pleasure filled nights of drinking cosmos, having and talking sex and smoking.

1) Classic Ray-Ban aviator
2) Iconic monogramed Carrie necklace
3) Designer handbag-Gucci
4) Figure-hugging American Apparel dress
5) Sexy, strappy Zara sandal

When I first moved to New York I bought Vogue instead of dinner. I just felt it fed me more.”
