Sarah Jessica Parker is Glam and Gorgeous in Metallic

May 31 2010

SJP is lookin’ extra, extra, hot lately. She appeared on Late Night with David Letterman a few days ago to promote her new movie and the Sex and the City star was garbed like a glam queen!

Her outfit consisted of a crisp white oversized blazer worn over a zebra patterned sequined mini, finished off with a colorful pair of cutout booties and an equally dazzling metallic purse.

A Closet Staple: Exotic Skin Clutches

May 30 2010

You can have as many clutches as you want. In different shapes, sizes, colors. Only you can tell if enough is really enough. But if there is one kind that you must have,  it has got to be the exotic skin one.

Nothing else is more powerful than an neutral exotic skin clutch. It is chic, versatile, and will never go out of style. Take for instance fashion maven Louise Roe of The City and CW’s upcoming makeover show Plain Jane.

The fashion expert was very stylish in a periwinkle dress worn with a sparkly sweater and polished by an crocodile skin envelope clutch when spotted at the CW party held last week.. Her whole ensemble was unexpected yet pulled together. A true blooded fashion stylist indeed.

Take cues from Loiuse and own at least one of this very versatile closet staple. Invest in a good quality one and it will surely go a long way.

Need help in finding the right exotic skin clutch for you? Here are some of my top choices you might also like.

Carlos Falchi Trapezoid Clutch, $879

I know, this is a little bit on the high side. I just couldn’t help putting it on top of my list. Its snake skin (anoconda) and its in classic gold. Just what every chic girl needs in a clutch.

Elaine Turner Bella Patent Croc Clutch, $140

A twist on the classic is this berry colored clutch in crocodile embossed patent leather. It is a lot more accessible than the former but take note that it is merely embossed on the skin. It will do the job, nonetheless.

Rafe New York Rafe Flap Clutch, $328

A unique mix of exotic skin and studs is this Rafe creation. While the snake embossed leather is a classic, the studs lend a heap of edginess to the piece. If your personal style calls for a tough chic look, then this one is made for you.


Khirma Eliazov Scalloped Clutch, $615

A clutch made out of stingray is rare. Hence, if you already have a lot of clutches but is still wanting more, then this Khirma Eliazov creation is one to invest in. The scalloped stingray panels is set nicely against the leather trimming. It also comes with a box chain strap which makes this piece even more versatile and covetable.

Kim Kardashian’s Patterned Clutch

May 28 2010

Kim Kardarshian really has made IT. Not just to IT girl status but she really has made it big. I see her when I open the TV. I see her when I open a magazine. I see her in celebrity online websites. I don’t follow her, I just see her everywhere!

I’m not a big fan of her fashion sense as it is always tight and hip-hugging. But I notice her knack of using interesting accessories. She is always one to carry a fabulous handbag. I haven’t ID’ed the one she is carrying in the above photo, but I managed to find some interesting alternatives:

Diane Von Furstenberg Hayworth Clutch, $395

The woven contrasting leather gives this clutch a tribal chic vibe. And the studs add edginess making this one covetable clutch.

Rebecca Minkoff Leopard Love Letter Clutch, $276.50 from $395

The leopard haircalf set against the black pebbled leather spells sophistication. The aqua blue detail is one of Minkoff’s signature unexpected detail.

L.A.M.B. Haughton Clutch, $149

A fun take on patterned clutches is this Gwen Stefani creation. The logo’ed floral canvas with leather trimmings is true to Gwen’s edgy urban chic style.
