Carissima Sheath // Black Lace

Dress: Anthropologie {also in white} // Bag (℅): 88 Handbags // Lips: Kylie Cosmetics in 'Dancer' // Shoes: ModCloth (old, similar) // Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick

This dress is the Carissima Sheath designed by Beguile by Byron Lars, sold at Anthropologie.   I originally tried this on in white at the Anthro store. When I saw that it was available in black online, I had to have it.  I white version was gorgeous but you all know I'm a sucker for an LBD.  This one is so well tailored, between the delicate lace sleeves and neckline, and the snaps up the front.  It has a nude slip under the lace for a sheer illusion, and a bow belt to cinch the waist.  The small details all over the dress really represent the craftsmanship and thought put into the design.  

I'm also wearing a lipstick from the Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection, called Dancer.  I'll be posting a full review of that on the blog in a few days, so stay tuned!

Poppy Red

Skirt: ASOS // Tee: James Perse // Dailylook Celine 'Nano' dupe // Wedges: BP. {on sale} // Sunglasses (℅): SICKY Eyewear // Belt: H&M // Lips: Tarte in 'Bae'

Funny story: I can't wear this skirt without heels, otherwise it grazes the floor.  But oh, I love it.  Red is such a bold color that I don't wear or own enough of.  I loved pairing this accordion pleated maxi with a simple white tee, a trick I took from Lauren Conrad's book (total must read!)  This James Perse tee is such a great essential piece and it's seriously so soft: I love wearing it in outfits, lounging around the house, or even to bed.  

I recently bought this bag on Poshmark: it's a black Celine Nano-inspired bag from DailyLook.  It's vegan leather, of course, and it is surprisingly close to the original Celine design, minus the brand name on in the front!  I've always loved the structure of the Nano bag, so this was a super fun find.

My Current Handbag Collection {vegan}

Handbags are my favorite accessory, hands down.  Going vegan (and kicking leather to the curb) led me to reduce my bag collection by a lot, which was great for me.  Because let me tell you, it was borderline hoarding.  Granted, my current collection of bags is by no means minimalistic, but I now make sure that the bags I keep are ones I actually use.  

For this post, you can click on the pictures to bring you to the original outfit post that it's from!

Stella McCartney holds a special place in my heart- this was the biggest splurge I've ever made on fashion, but I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw it.  This bag showed me that ethical and sustainable fashion could still mean luxury and amazing quality!  This was worth the investment.

I used to love Kate Spade's fun, whimsical designs, and I still do!  She's famous for her leather bags, so this vegan patent bag was a rare and special find!  It's actually a girls bag, which is why it's tiny, but the size makes it a cute statement piece.  

I've worked with 88 Handbags a few times on LMHC and I can honestly say that they are one of my favorite vegan brands, hands down.  They make the most amazing quality bags for affordable prices.  The Sophie bag is my favorite of the line (and it comes in 6 colors).  

Phillip Lim is a major designer and he's famous for his trademark Pashli bag, which is leather and comes with a hefty price tag.  He did a collaboration with Target that included a ton of leather-free Pashli bags.  I love the structure of this bag!

The Mitsuko Mini from Matt & Nat was the first vegan bag I ever bought, and I purchased it before I even went vegan!  I love Matt & Nat's minimalistic designs and clean lines.  I have both the black and tan colors- they're super versatile and practical!

 Ted Baker is one of my favorite stores, and their fabric clutches are my favorite to add to a fancy outfit.  His floral prints are so gorgeous, and the quality and attention to details in Ted Baker pieces are insane.
