Bright Whites

{Theysken’s Theory Jipsi Fologna Jacket}

I saw this blazer on Glee a few weeks ago and I was intrigued. (I love musicals. I’m just going to put that out there.) I wasn’t sure how I felt about the inverted bottom hem, but after a moment’s thought I was sold. This Theysken’s Theory blazer is way out of my budget at $675, so I’ve been on the hunt for a more affordable version. Though these blazers don’t replicate the inverted bottom hem, their crisp  lines and clean bright white color leave little else to be desired.

Satchel Essentials

{Classic black satchels}

Like most women, I tend to carry my entire life around with me in my purse. Despite my best attempts to stay organized, I still find myself frantically searching through my bag to find my keys or wallet. (I’ve even gone so far as to use one of these silly-looking bag organizers.) I’ve come to the decision that the answer to my problems is simple – a satchel. The ample storage room and structured, rectangular base of these classic black satchels allow for easy organization, while the double handles and shoulder strap make them versatile enough to go from the office to a day strolling through a flea market.
