Orange / Black / Gold

by - Thursday, June 19, 2014

I'm wearing and using two of my favorite recent purchases today. Quick reviews for each:

1) The AT top has a hint of leather detailing with wonderful draping throughout. I also like the longer length in front. I'm wearing the top in XXS, my usual AT size. It's on the looser side, so size down if in-between sizes. Unfortunately, not many sizes remain online, so definitely check store availability if you're interested.

2) I've been looking for an orange accessory (belt or clutch) for awhile now and love the Claremont perforated clutch from J.Crew. The leather is saffiano-like (so low maintenance), the interior is lined in greige-colored suede (so luxe!), the front clasp is magnetic but sturdy so I haven't had any problems with it opening by itself randomly. I can fit a coin purse, card holder, iPod, dumb phone, lipstick, keys, and my work badge inside. I've actually reached for this clutch every day this week, so expect plenty of outfit posts to follow featuring this summer-y colored clutch.

The perforated rounded plus-sign design bugged me for a long time because it looked so familiar but I couldn't place it. Then it hit me -- it looks a lot like LV's design! (Is there a name for that? I'm not hip to anything LV at all.)
