Vintage Style Handbags at Very!

A women’s handbag collection is never complete. Before, my spring wardrobe is officially finalized I need to assess to one more thing – my handbag collection. This season brings us many shapes and styles, and I could not be more excited to incorporate some fun and coveted handbags into my collection. I checked out Very and was really impressed with their vintage style bags. Definitely different than the pieces I already have in my collection, making them excellent purchase options. Here are a few of my favourites: 

Leather Croc Satchel - £165.00

Leather Kensington Satchel Bag - £159.00

Fiorelli Black
Quilted Satchel - £95.00

Francis Grab Tote Bag - £79.00

Fiorelli Black
Black feather Clutch Bag - £95.00

I adore the last Fiorelli Black Feather Clutch. It is screaming my name! After such a long winter I think it’s time to treat my accessories closet and purchase these fabulous finds. Not only are they chic, but they are also timeless, great quality and most importantly stylish! 

Joe Browns Spring Dresses!

This spring it seems everything is coming up roses. Get ready, because it’s almost time for you to prance around in your floral and flirty pieces. Since the snow is beginning to melt and the sun is peering through the grey sky, it is time to revamp your closet and get ready for the glorious months ahead – and there is nothing better for the warm months than a patterned dress or tunic. I am putting in an effort to add bursts of colour and lovely prints into my wardrobe for this upcoming season and I have been doing an excessive amount of online shopping. Yes, I said excessive. I admit online shopping is an addiction for me. During my latest online browse I came across Joe Browns. Joe Browns is a lifestyle company based out of the UK, committed to providing their expansive customer base with clothing that is both great quality and fashionable. I checked out their large selection of women dresses and tunics and here are a few of my favourites:

New Mix & Match Dress

Epitome Dress

Fresh & Floral Dress

Pretty Layer Bodice Dress

Cute, no? These dresses are perfect for the exciting spring/summer days ahead – I am so excited! Have fun shopping, ladies!

MAC Cosmetics Sheen Supreme Lipstick Collection

Gloss is good, but there’s nothing quite as wonderfully, worldly cinematic as a Lipstick – and they’re coming back! We’ve updated formulas to make it all plausible. Sheen Supreme is the combination of the strong, sensually saturated colour of, say, Tilda Swinton’s I Am Love Milanese Lipstick, leavened with the light feel and clear vibrancy, the see-through sheen of a modern New York City Girl Gloss. Imagine no muddy undertones, gliding in pearl or creme finish, moisturizing with no sticky/tacky feel. It’s a new medium, with M∙A∙C in the lead. This is retro/modern – and
devastatingly chic.

MAC Cosmetics Cremeblend Blushes

For every contour control freak, for every persistent perfectionist comes this wondrous way to play with blush that gives you the most magnificent flexibility you’ve ever had…Starts creamy, stays creamy and proves once and for all that powder is NOT your only prerogative. You can get back to a new build for that retro “rouge” look – Old Hollywood Glamour made modern – or stop at subtle and natural; it’s all in your hands. In three aspects, two shades of each: One matched to skin, one for a brighter glow and one darker for cream contouring, it’s perfect for all skin colours, minus the silicone, particularly adept at preventing ashiness on darker complexions. Make powdery a thing of the past.

Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses…France may take the credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de NĂ®mes = DeNim), but bright young American women took it higher!M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, along withNEW limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer.
