The Costume Council presents.....Wow that purse is so sparkly, it's blinding me!



If it weren't too obnoxious to people that actually have a reason to send birth announcements, I would send one in honor of my new Judith Leiber. I can picture myself in a photo studio wearing a gorgeous dress (perhaps the one I had on at the momentous occasion), holding the bag up on the air like a mother would hold her sweet, adoring baby. No? Ridiculous?
I have wanted a Judith Leiber bag as long as I can remember. Few things in this world (several hundred at least) make me feel tingly the way sparkle and rhinestones do, so you can imagine how I must felt when I realized, "I own this bag" (it took days for it to sink in). My excitement must have been the reason I handed her her book No Mere Bagatelles backwards (and upside down) to sign. "Crap", I shrieked!

I call it Cuban Prep.....



Banana Republic is typically known for "business chic", but I pulled together a look that even I would wear.
The jacket came with a fabric belt, so I removed it and added a metallic skinny belt. These t-shirts come in several shades and will be a staple underneath all jackets for me this season, I love the way the sides peek out of the bottom. I ALSO love that most stores carry light weight socks that coordinate with their lines, so I added a pair with these strappy sandals. If you do pair socks with open toes sandals, make sure they are thick straps and hide the toe seams underneath your feet.
