Botkier Spring 2011 Preview

IMG_5454

Earlier this week, I was invited to view Botkier’s Spring 2011 bag and shoe collections. Not surprisingly, I’m now lusting over a handful of new handbags, and a few pairs of sandals! I’ve always been one partial to mostly black accessories, but I’m starting to think this might just be the collection that breaks that habit.

I’m not usually into snake prints, but I really love the color combination on these two bags!

Another favorite of mine:

My camera really didn’t do this color justice! It’s a beautiful bright neon yellow-green.

Matching accessories:

Made from the same materials, and in the same colors, the shoes and accessories all perfectly compliment the bags.

Botkier’s Spring collection has a bag for everyone. Bags come in every possible size, tons of styles, and a wide variety of colors to choose from. From bohemian cut out leather, to neon, to snake skin. I love that whether you want something classic, flashy, or somewhere in between you can find it in this collection… and you can buy the shoes to match!

The first shipment hits stores in January! I can’t wait, even though I have a feeling this collection is going to be deadly for my bank account. : )

Thanks so much to Shine Media and Botkier for inviting me! And for the beautiful purple wallet I took home.

Holiday Sample Sales

Earlier today, I attended the Rodarte sample sale. Unfortunately, I came home empty handed. The knits were priced well over my budget, and the studded leather gloves I’d been lusting over were nowhere to be found (nor were the studded Louboutins). It was amazing to see and touch pieces in person, but until the day I can afford a hand knit cardigan, I’ll be saving all my Rodarte money for the Target collab. Speaking of, the lookbook just went live at The Cut.

Luckily there are plenty of other upcoming sales if you have money to burn, or are itching for a new holiday dress and can’t wait until the 20th for the Target release:

Going on Now:
The l.a.m.b handbag sale is now extended until Saturday, with some items 50% off the sample sale price. New stock is said to be arriving today.
