The Power of a Purse

currently crushing, van laced avenue vegan bag, ted baker weindows dressIt’s amazing how easily a handbag can change the feel of an outfit.  I’ve worn this Ted Baker dress with a clutch for evening,  my yellow bucket bag for running around and when I needed to give it a little more polish for a business meeting this structured bag was just the ticket…

      Thanks, Abby! It’s such a great bag – it feels and looks like an ‘investment’ bag at such an unbelievable price! It comes with a strap, too xx

    Kristi!! You look so glam and I love the yellow statement necklace with that dress – it’s eye-catching. And yes, I definitely thought that was an investment bag because it looks really expensive. Your hair is gorgeous too, I wish I could blow dry my hair to look like your’s. :)

    I knew that dress was by Ted Baker! I saw it in their store a little while ago, it’s amazing! You wear it so well! I really like your blog though! I’m glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by both of my blogs sometime too (I’m from England) and I post my outfits and personal style on Raindrops of Sapphire and general fashion from celebs and brands on The Fashion Supernova! I hope you have a lovely day and I’m looking forward to your next post :) :)
