Envelope Clutches!
A dear friend is headed to LA for the parties this weekend celebrating the Golden Globes. Since the only red carpet reporting I ever do is from resort openings (and then it’s strictly D list and below), I’m l i v i n g vicariously through her trip to awesometown. The first step, of course, is picking the right outfit. She did that with the help of her coworkers “fashion show at lunch” style and now she’s on to the accessories. I, like everyone in the free world these days, can’t get enough of the envelope clutches the kids are sporting. I love the (please forever forgive me for using this phrase) pop of color and the ladylike structure. I also live for the fact that you can fit way more than a tube of gloss and a lonely id in there. I mean a girl has got to live tweet!

Countdown to Ibiza: Summer scarves.
I’ve been sporting the summer scarf since Nicole was a sidekick and Kim was a shopper for Brandy. There’s something about wrapping a piece of pretty material around my neck that makes me happy. The scarf goes well with anything from a cardigan and woven shirt to a tank (my staple) and a vintage-inspired swimsuit. In prep for my sailing adventure around Ibiza and her out islands next week (can you tell I’m excited!?), I’ve done some scooping around the interweb for some to add to my enormous collection of wraps of all sizes. These are some of my favorites. A few I already own, some I’m just admiring and a couple I may have sneaked past Husband while he was glued to his computer…
