Fab Find of the Week: Leather Envelope Clutch


Woven Leather Envelope Clutch - Urban Expressions via Marshalls (exact), Striped Button-up Shirt - J.Crew, sold out (similar), Woven Bracelet (top) - bought in Cabo San Lucas, Crystal Bracelets - J.Crew (on sale in stores)

 While wandering around Marshall's the other day (looking for household items, honestly) I happened upon the handbag aisle. I was admiring a dark brown envelope clutch at J.Crew, but even with my discount it was more than I wanted to spend. When I saw this bigger and more flexible one (with more interior pockets!) for only $19.99, I knew it was coming home with me. It comes with a removable gold chain strap which I haven't even removed from the plastic. I have been carrying it as a clutch and replaced my big, bulky purse for about a week and I love it! I plan on taking this one to Cabo with me instead of the one from this post because it's a neutral and more beach-y. 

What fab finds have you found recently? 

I leave for Cabo on Sunday so I will be MIA until I return!

What to Pack For a Beach Vacation

From Left to Right: White denim cut-off shorts - BlankNYC, Beaded bracelets - Conversation Pieces, sold out, (similar), Mirrored aviators - Nordstrom, Embroidered tunic - c/o Conversation Pieces, sold out, (similar), Panama Hat - Target (similar), Envelope clutch - J.Crew, sold out (similar), Lipsticks - assorted brands, Watercolor Bikini - J.Crew (on sale!), Lace-up Wedges - Jessica Simpson

I leave for Cabo San Lucas next Sunday, and I've been mentally packing for about a month. I can't wait to break in my new tunic from Conversation Pieces (I plan on wearing it every morning to breakfast over looking the ocean....ahhh) and my fun watercolor printed bikini from J.Crew. Most of the trip will be spent in a bikini and a panama hat, so I'm bringing at least 3 different mix and match combos.My white denim cut offs will get a lot of use during the day, since it will match with every top I pack. At night I plan on bringing light, airy dresses in bright prints like this stunner I got today in the mail. I can't wait to share pictures from the trip!

What are your must-haves for a tropical vacation?

Must-Have Statement Necklaces for Spring

1. J.Crew 2. Baublebar 3. Jeweliq
I have acquired quite the collection of statement necklaces in the 7 months I have worked at J.Crew. I wear one virtually on a daily basis, and it truly does amp up every outfit. The 3 necklaces above are examples of "must-have" statement necklaces for spring/summer. The first one is even a departure for myself. It's very intricate and different. Adding a piece like this to your necklace collection would be a daring, but fun choice. The second necklace is a silver bib necklace that I've seen around for a while, but I don't own. I love the way this one from Baublebar looks, and I can already plan some outfits around it (that's when you know you have a winner!). The third piece from Jeweliq is a fun neon number that is a must for this time of the year. Paired with everything from dresses,skirts, or a plain white tee, this one will stand out and scream "YEAH, IT'S SPRING!"

Shop 415Bond!

With an ever-expanding wardrobe, I am always rotating things in and out of my closet. I have been consigning most of my items, but for some higher end or ones I think will be a fast sell, I go to eBay. Make sure to check out my eBay store here. I list a variety of items, at a variety of price points. Look out for higher end, designer items, and new or gently used clothing. :) If you are making an offer on an item, let me know you are a reader for a special discount. :)
