Everything that glitters...

I am a huge fan of glittery accessories. Obviously, golden sandals and metallic clutches are staples in everyone and their mothers' closets for partying and other PM activities. I, on the other hand, am not really a party girl anymore but love to rather incorporate the glitz in my day looks... in moderation, that is. I am talking a goldish purse or wide belt, some statement jewelry or whatever you might be in the mood for, paired with solid, neutral colors and silhouettes... not the Christmas tree look. Unless you're Ivana, maybe. Then everything goes!

Once in a while, though, I get cravings for cute, metallic evening bags. You can never own too many of them, right? On set of Gossip Girl the other day, I spotted a golden Chanel evening purse that wardrobe had given Leighton for one of her scenes, and I fell in love immediately. It kind of looked like a 2.55, yet not... I didn't get the chance to check it out that thoroughly and could obviously not take a picture (way to get yourself fired!), but if you follow the show, check it out in an upcoming episode where she is yelling at a college rep in a gay bar, and you'll see what I mean. Must. Have. Now.

Other glitzy evening purses I like right now are, from left to right below, Mary Norton's "Red Carpet Classic" Ginny Top Handle Satin Pouchette, Judith Leiber's "Heart N Soul" Evening Bag and Gucci's "Hysteria" Clutch. I am not 100 % sure of the Leiber, as it has that borderline costume-y look going on and might not be that wearable unless you want to look like a 5-year-old Paris Hilton. But if it makes you smile, rather than cringe... then why not? Maybe if I was on Blair Waldorf's budget.

Have a good weekend, everyone!


  1. Oh, beautiful! Yes, I dooo (but even more so, I love YOU, in fashion)!

    Oh, do we get to do "Dear Couture Cookie..."? When in desperate need of fashion advice?


  2. Love you too, xoxoxox! And I don't know if I can handle that responsibility... I might deck you all out in silk jumpsuits and layered necklaces! If it's good enough for me, it must be good enough for all of us! :)
