10 To-Die-For Green Handbags

As you may have guessed by my haircolor for the past year, I am a total sucker for the color green. Green is a versatile color that can feel happy, clean, fresh and bright, but it can also be luxurious, murky, dark and mysterious. Give me green in pretty much all of it’s incarnations: emerald, grassy, chartreuse, dirty olive, nearly black. The right shade of green can be a statement piece, or a neutral staple in your wardrobe. Green of any hue is one of my favorite colors to see in a handbag, and green bags are having a moment so I wanted to share a few with you!

 

We’ll start with something fairly tame and classic, this turnlock style from Ted Baker. The color is downright neutral but more interesting than a brown or gray bag. I love the clean lines and the rose gold hardware! It has a 21 1/2” inch strap drop which is about the minimum I need for a bag to fit my size 22 body as a cross-body. I just love how neutral and chic this is, and the inner compartments could make organizing my phone, eye drops, sunglasses, receipts, and zillions of lipsticks a little bit easier.

Fat babes rejoice: This Whiting & Davis crossbody bag has a 25″ strap drop that can also convert into a shoulder strap! Love the Versatility! Plus have you ever had a metal mesh bag like this? I had one in the early 00’s and it feels so cool! The oil slick coloring is gorgeous, and it comes in 4 other colors to tickle your fancy.

I love a good nylon bag- it’s so practical and light-weight, perfect for day trips or traveling. This Nordstrom Brand crossbody  is easy to clean; you can toss these in your washing machine, and let it air dry to get all the crumbs and coffee spills out. Is that just me? The olive color is so beautiful, it has a 23″ strap drop which is my personal sweetspot, and quite a few handy features like card slots. Kinda thinking og scooping this one up!

Three words: Green Leopard Print. Either that makes you very excited or makes you cringe. It’s an acquired taste, or maybe it’s just tacky, but if you love it who cares! This Claire V. clutch is essentially a zippered pouch that is big enough to hold a small tablet. Made in Italy and the USA, it’s a lovely piece that speaks volumes about your personality.

Green Velvet is probably one of my favorite things ever. Add matelassé stitching (the folding) into the mix and this bag becomes a textural delight! This Miu Miu bag is made in Italy, and is a pretty decent size for an over the shoulder bag. The price puts this baby well outside my budget, but I’m still delighted to have seen it!


I let out an audible sigh when I spotted this Gorgeous BRAHMIN satchel. The Color. The Velvet. The Embossing. The Shape. The boxy enterior that would make it easy to see an everything on the inside. Seeing this bag was like falling in love, I’m imagining us going to holidays together, and seeing the kids off the college and then in the twilight years, kicking back and watching the sunset together. It’s a bit pricey but not quite as INSANE as some gorgeous bags, so I’ll be watching to see if it goes one sale, or maybe I’ll just bite the bullet!

The moment I saw this Hobo Clutch I was struck by how practical it is! I love a good wrist clutch, and this one ticked all the boxes: Great style, fabulous color, big enough for my phone and card wallet but not so big I’ll over stuff it. The Jasper color will look lovely in any season, and I can see myself getting a lot of mileage out of this one. So I bought it. It comes it two other beautiful colors as well.

This Simon Miller bag was made in the USA! While this looks like a fairly large tote, reading the info I realized it’s more like a small clutch in size: 8”W x 7 3/4”H x 3”D Not so great for anyone who carried more than their phone credit card  and lipgloss, but perfect for a non-fussy date or dinner with your friends when you don’t want to look too dressed up but your everyday bag is too heavy for a night out. The color on this is right up my alley, I just want to pet it!

Compared to many of the others on this list, this Street Level clutch is a bargain at $35. I love faux fur, and the geo-shape of this cute bag really speaks to me. This bag s a 23″ strap drop- my plus-size sweet spot! This would be a great way to dip your toe in if you’re not sure green bags are for you!

And of course- most fun for last. I love any bag that looks like something else, so this Moschino Small Biker Jacket Shoulder Bag is insanely adorable to me. Under the cute design this is a basic flap bag, made in Italy, with a 21-24″ crossbody strap so hey-yo, perfect for every body.

 

Neon Navy Makeup Tutorial

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I have something to confess- I freaking love chartreuse. Call it neon lime, yellow-green, lemon-lime, call it limeade, just don’t call it late for dinner. I even love the name –Chartreuse– it sounds so exotic and enticing, amiright? That magical color somewhere between yellow and green makes me happy in the way yellow does, but the cooler tone compliments my hair and makes my eye color pop. But it’s not all about me- this color is just so versatile…worn alone it’s a statement unto itself, but it also pairs well with Hot Pink, Blue, Purple, even Orange if you’re so bold. If you’ve never tried it before, you need to get on it!

I’ve done a lot of tutorials with chartreuse over the years, and I’m always drawn to makeup of this color. When I was at Sephora the other day I was browsing the Make Up For Ever counter and I noticed they had new twist up waterproof shadow sticks. While my immediate thought was “Huh, just like the old MAC shade sticks!” the iridescent Chartreuse called to me “Take me home, I’ll be good to you”. And so I took her home with a plan to pair her with the Navy from the Lorac Pro 2 palette, some Sugarpill lashes I’d simply been dying to use, and the rest was makeup magic.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink ~OOTD~

MEAN GIRLS OOTD 1

” saw Cady Heron Vintageortacky wearing army pants and flip flops, so I bought army pants and flip flops

Hey Guys & Dolls!

When I was in high school I did most of my clothes shopping at thrift stores, and one of my favorite finds were a pair of loose and comfy fatigues. I wore them constantly, with my vintage t-shirts (an Einstein one was my fave), and you guessed it, flip flops. When I was about 19 I realized how unattractive wearing baggy pants was and I chucked them out. When I saw Mean Girls and heard the quote about “Army Pants and Flip Flops” I was like “THIS IS MY LIFE” and was instantly sad I got rid of my hella cool pants.

When cyber-window shopping a few weeks ago, I came across this pair of very attractively cut camo pants from City Chic. In. My. Size. INSTABUY!! The slim cut and detailing make them a pant I want to wear all the time. Not to toot my own horn, but my butt looks awesome in these. Oh heck, it’s good to celebrate yourself: Toot toot.

I completed the outfit with pink, pink and more pink. I think that the girly hue balances the green, looks amazing, plus you know:
