If you browse my blog, then you would assume that I already purchased these items (all of them). I can't help myself - by the time I curate an 'I'm Coveting..' list, everything is in my online shopping bag, waiting for me to hit 'complete order'!
I LOVE these Chloé Carlina round sunglasses in silver and powder pink (available at Mytheresa). The braided, fine gold-tone metalwork is delicate and feminine. The frames are round and a bit oversized. The pink gradient lenses are pale and won't protect your eyes from the sun - BUT they look good. I'm a HUGE fan of Chloé sunglasses. The bohemian Chloé attitude is carefree and the variety of 'free spirit' sunglass styles evoke flower child charm.
I had no intentions of buying new shoes when I went to Chloé on Madison in New York a few months ago, but you can't argue love at first site. These shoes were meant for me AND they're so comfy. The Chloé River wedge boot (available at Chloé) has a military look, but the corset-inspired lace-up vamp gives a feminine vibe. The laces are leather, so beware - these can stretch and break fairly easily. Pair these wedge boots with a t-shirt dress and the Chloé Roy double clutch handbag.
Yeah, I would go to the ends of the earth to procure a handbag - I had to engage Dutch friends in the Netherlands to get this one. This pink leather micro-bag by Fendi (available at Fendi) is super tiny and embellished with galvanized pearls. I love this Fendi handbag style and am super excited to get my first micro Peekaboo. While it's still on route, I've already made big plans for this tiny Peekaboo handbag.
Each season Fendi brings us new bag accessories - fur pom poms, mini bags (to attach to your bag) and this season, the Fendi Space Monkey (available at Fendi). This little bag accessory dons the signature Fendi print and has a leather headpiece embellished with galvanized pearls. SO CUTE! I put this on my Mother's Day wish list.. I trust my Toy Poodle is gonna come through!
James Smith slides (available at Shop Planet Blue) are simple and chic. The slip-on style comes with a leather or suede vamp and a thin sole. These fit nicely and go great with everything. I have a long road trip this summer and think these will be the perfect slide for those en-route days and site-seeing.
YUP, I have this one too. The Louis Vuitton Hot Springs backpack (available at Louis Vuitton) combines my two favorite LV Vernis leather colors - Amarante and Rose Ballerine. The backpack is small, but spacious inside AND has a pink lining. Backpacks are having a moment this season (especially mini backpacks). I was super lucky to land this bag. I'd seen it on the LV site, but it wasn't available. I casually walked into the Louis Vuitton store in New York some weeks later and there it was! That was great day, BUT the very reason why I shouldn't visit New York often. I've been selling stuff on eBay ever since, trying to make up for the financial damage I caused!

The gorgeous and unique selection of handbags by my favorite designers this season is gonna bankrupt me. I'm addicted to handbags (seriously). I'd give up a whole lot of luxuries to purchase a few new handbags each season. Twice a year, I go through my closet and choose handbags and shoes that I don't LOVE anymore and list them on eBay - this is a great way to make some extra money, so I can afford my hangdbag addiction. I have so many amazing handbags, but the sensation of buying something new, limited edition and on-trend gives me too much pleasure.
The Chloé Roy double clutch handbag (available at Chloé) was my first handbag obsession this season. The detachable clutches are linked with pale gold-tone rings. You can wear these clutches separately, BUT I'm not sure why you would - that's not exciting. The double clutch design has a top handle and shoulder strap. The shoulder strap is detachable and Chloé will release new colors throughout the season. I love the contrast of the blue strap against the olive green and beige leather clutches, but it's not available yet. YES, I purchased this bag in New York a few weeks ago. This unique design is a must-have Chloé handbag(s).
I'm also addicted to sunglasses. Especially, Chloé sunglasses. These Chloé gold-tone sunglasses (available at Intermix) have a horn brow bridge and earpiece. This design is smaller than the typical Chloé sunglass style and I do love oversized sunglasses, BUT the horn detail is a delicate touch to the otherwise masculine aviator style.
I'm in to socks these days. Socks that run a little higher than my sock-style boots and socks that would look great inside pumps or sandals. Of course, if you don a sock with high-heeled sandals, it's got to be light and feminine. These Emilio Cavallini metallic striped diamond net socks (available at Intermix) are perfect. I have a wedding in May and plan to wear these socks with my Azure Aniline (baby blue), suede Nudistrong Stuart Weitzman sandals.
If you follow my blog and personal style, you know I LOVE sock-style boots. These Emilio Cavallini varsity stripe ankle socks (available at Intermix) slightly show the white and black stripe beneath my boots and adds a little sporty-chic vibe. Pair this look with joggers and an oversized sweatshirt.
The Kendall + Kylie Alana bootie (available at Revolve) is special. These shear, suede and mesh boots would look great with dresses and even joggers (yeah, I have a sweatpants obsession too). I'm not sure how I feel about showcasing my toes in a shear shoe (that can get ugly real fast), but they're gorgeous nevertheless.
Fendi to me is the Porsche of handbags. Most seasons (not all of them), I watch the show, screen shot looks and wait patiently for the handbags to hit the Fendi boutiques. AND the strap you collection is amazing! The embellished straps attach to most Fendi bags - I love this! The contrast of this light brown and green palm tree-like Fendi strap (available at Fendi) against this feminine floral embellished, multi-color Fendi runway shopper (available at Fendi) is perfection.
Yeah, I paired the two - they don't belong together, but look amazing holding hands. The muted flower print mesh of the shopper and jungle-esque vibe of the strap says Spring is here, nature is beautiful and I look good carrying this unique fusion of Fendi accessories. May the fashion gods shine down (or my husband) and bless me with this Fendi runway shopper and exotic strap.
