ShopBop has a new face, alright, one that is actually making my shopping experience with them more pleasant. I am loving the clean lines and the absence of that distinct papaya-hued banner. For some reason, I favor ShopBop more than any other online boutiques. I just had to peek into their clutch bag & jewelry collection when I realized I had to update mine.
As fall sets in, I realize that my preferences have taken a different turn as well. I am now looking into a deeper palette in the brown, black, crimson and plum hues. Exactly what I envision old Victorian-era romance to be. But with a modern twist, of course. Here are my best sets!
I instantly felt this lace brocade clutch to be a winner because of its affinity to romance & seduction, plus the twig-shaped closure is a beautiful detail. Perhaps a rendezvous in the forest? The jet-faceted crystal earrings are so vintage, it makes me think of turtleneck collars and wispy ponytails.
Definitely of Victorian descent, this suede bag captures my look book for fall 2012 to a perfect T. I can see it worn as a crossbody paired with a short, casual dress and heeled booties. The necklace is an altogether different thing: Swarovski renders the sweetness while the spike additions play a hint of dangerous. I love the combination!
I can easily picture this clutch as my carry-all for the whole season because it’s oversized (very roomy!) and versatile enough to pair with just about anything. And especially with leather boots, I think it will look amazing. The antique leather finish (snake-embossed) gives it a vintage appeal plus I love the slim handle details at the top. This cross pendant necklace I chose is also vintage-y, carved brass and faceted beads are very rich and romantic.
