Happy National Handbag Day

Hola!  Happy Friday to you all!  Did you know that today is a holiday?  Well it is National Handbag Day!  Deemed by the ladies behind the Purse Blog, today is a day to celebrate something that almost all women love…handbags.  I must say that I have always loved a fab bag (and shoe) over clothes any day which is why this is one of my new favorite holidays.

I have selected a few of my favorite bags that I would totally splurge on it if my bank account allowed it.  Featured a crossbody, backpack, clutch, bucketbag, a tote and more…there is something for the handbag lover in all of us!  Let me know your thoughts and don’t forget to share what bag you plan to rock today.  Enjoy NHD!

Friday Sass—White on White is Just Right

Hola!  TGIF!  I am still on a minimalism kick and today’s sass—White on White is Just Right proves it.  Lately I’ve been digging monochromatic ensembles, to me it gives off a classic and clean look.  This Balenciaga tailored croptop shows just a hint of skin but when paired with a Proenza Schouler peplum skirt you are covered and chic!  I love mixing gold accessories with white as it uplifts the clean palette making it appear fresh/rich.  A nude face is definitely in this spring so keep your makeup simple.  Finish off with a fab pair of heels and tousled curlz…finito!  I wish it was warm enough for me to rock this now, however if the temps are right for you go for it!  Have a fab weekend 🙂

Friday Sass—Baby It’s Cold Outside

Hola!  Happy Freezing Friday!  I say that because if you are in the northeast region of the country then I am sure you got hit by Hercules.  Yes we are covered in snow but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style….right?  Which brings me to today’s sass—Baby It’s Cold Outside.  I love a hooded parka, cozy sweater, jeans and weather-proof boots.  This look is layered up but still cute!  Give this ‘fit a try as you head out, I am sure that you will love it.  Enjoy!

Bundle Up...Baby It's Cold Outside

Friday Sass—Love The Way You Look

Hola!  Happy Friday!  What are your weekend plans—going out with your beau, shopping with the girls or just relaxing?!  Whatever it is please take note of today’s sass—Love The Way You Look.  Ladies, we are often so harsh on ourselves when it comes to appearance.  We want our hair to be right, outfit on point and face to be beat…while that is all good (it is important to look presentable) we must remember to love ourselves.  There is no need to fret because nobody is perfect.  I think that it is best to accept yourself as is and go with the flow.  It will be so much easier that way.  So throw on your #NoFilter sweatshirt with pride and show the world what you’re really working it.  Have a fab and fun weekend!

Love The Way You Look

Friday Sass—Purple Passion

Hola!  Happy Friday!  Can you believe that it is August already?!?  If you are shopping around in the stores you would think that we were well into fall.  All of the summer merchandise is on sale and fall clothes are hitting the racks.  Today’s sass—Purple Passion is a look that can easily transition from warm weather into cooler temps.  We only have a limited amount of weeks left in summer; why not get dressed, go out and enjoy it!

Friday Sass—Black & White All Over

Hola peeps!  Happy Friday!  I don’t know about you but I am really diggin the Black and White trend for Spring.  Today’s sass—Black & White All Over shows just how easy it is to pull the look off.  Throw on a graphic tee, striped jeans, Proenza Schouler clutch topped off with a pair of retro J’s…POW!  This look is cool and comfy, perfect for a Friday night out with your amigas.  Enjoy your weekend!
