Splurge vs Steal: Celine Trapeze Bag



 splurge: Celine ($2,000+) vs steal: Spin Gallery ($62)

 That is one heck of a steal! Love the detail of the front flap, it adds a bit of spunk to a simple structured purse. It’s a perfect thing to add to my on-going streak of Black & White! The trapeze bag and the bold black + white look is all the rage these days. Here’s the proof:

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”
— Coco Chanel

BLACK&WHITE: The newest “must-have” trend I’m all about this seasons. Just caved in and bought these heels from ShoeMint and can’t wait till they come in! (They come in black too just in case you’re not ready to make the big leap on the graphic palette)

I’ve always been a huge fan of this mod-behavior. While many people become a deer in headlights and automatically think Cher Horowitz when they see white shoes, I see “the new neutral”. I’d mix it with an all white ensemble, LBD or a wild print. That pretty much sums up everything in my closet. WIN!

What are your thoughts on WHITE OUT coming in?
