Brand Banter: See By Chloe

13 Feb

Today I was pleasantly distracted by this beauty from See By Chloe:

April Snake Stamped Trapeze Bag, $650.

April Snake Stamped Trapeze Bag, $650.

I know that it is definitely inspired by a certain “it” bag, but please let me explain. The pastel pink fits the bill in terms of my girlie style and I love leather that’s snake stamped. It’s edgy without being vulgar. It’s also very easy to travel with. It would make an excellent carry-on. And… it’sĀ  about $1,500 less expensive than “you know who”. Must I go on…..?

This prompted me to glance over the latest See By Chloe collection for Spring. Must I mention that I was ecstatic over the separates that would work seamlessly with aforementioned trapeze bag? I love everything from the perfectly mauve/taupe chunky cardigan to the pretty pink dress pictured below that you can easily wear every season.

Chunky Knit Cardigan, $525

Chunky Knit Cardigan, $525

Floral Print Jersey Skirt, $195

The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 2

10 Dec

Last week we put the spotlight on The Label Whore. This week it’s all about The Colorful Chameleon. This person is far from glum and wears color like nobody else (electric blue with pastel pink? Why not!) This individual is also a fan of the arts and perhaps is an artist themselves. If they wear black, it must be paired with a colored jean or a bright accessory. They are a kid at heart and their energy is off the wall!
