Technically, this may not be a Perfect Pair, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was in the accessories zone. Sometimes all it takes is one accessory to ignite the perfect look, and that’s exactly what sparked this ensemble. For me, it all started with the Joelle Hawkens by Treesje Hunt Satchel, and the rest was history.

With its zipper edging and front detailing, this Joelle Hawkens satchel has a laid back, downtown feel that’s compelling.

After seeing the full Gucci Spring 2014 Handbags collection, I instantly fell in love. However, like the our original review mentions, I also worried a bit about practicality. New York weather is not always in a fashion girl’s favor; one gust of wind and I’d be hitting an innocent bystander with the fringe of my Gucci Bamboo Fringe Shopper, not to mention that the fringe is probably a bit long for my rather petite stature.

People who know me, know that I’m a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal. I have an extensive collection of pieces that are easy to wear and not considered statement pieces, I leave my bags to do most of the attention-catching. But after seeing the droves of people at New York Fashion Week, I always reconsider some fun pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe.

I remember an era in my life where yellow gold was so out of style. No one wanted to wear yellow gold and it became associated with gaudiness, but right now yellow gold is taking center stage once again and I’m thrilled about it.

Today’s perfect pair is all about two things that are both a girl’s best friend, jewelry and designer handbags.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love nail art. I’m by no means a nail art guru (in fact, far from it), but over the past year I’ve been able to teach myself to steady my hand and try out some different manicures to accessorize my nails.

This week’s perfect pair comes as the last bit of summer ends.

There is so much that goes into getting ready for a night out, and each part of planning is as important as the next. When it comes to the finishing touch, I always opt for finding the perfect bag, but I also never leave home without a spritz of my favorite scent.

Viva la Juicy scent is an incredibly popular daytime option, and now there is the ideal evening counterpart, the sensual and bold Viva la Juicy Noir.

Since I first laid eyes on the Fendi 2Jours Bag, it was love at first sight. This is a bag that stands out when you see it online, but in person it’s even more stunning. Every bit of the bag is refined and elegant, without appearing old or stuffy. In fact, if you’re looking for a bag to splurge on and you want something classic and on-trend, this is the bag for you.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that fancy-schmancy nail art is a huge trend. The only problem with nail art, of course, is that it’s expensive and time-consuming to have done at a salon and you’re probably not coordinated enough to do it yourself. That’s where pre-decorated nail art stickers become super convenient, and specifically NCLA Nail Wraps.

As narrow as our focus can sometimes be at PurseBlog, we’re well aware that a good accessories look goes far beyond simply choosing a bag. (Although, let’s face it, that’s our favorite way to start.) The story of your personal style can often be found in the details, and when two details spend as much time adjacent to each other as a woman’s bag and her watch, they better be speaking the same language.

I just got back from a relaxing and very sunshine-filled vacation to Florida and the Bahamas, and while New York weather isn’t quite cooperating, I still have poolside lounging on my mind. I’m waiting for the weather up here to catch up to what I just left, and while it’s a bit chilly and rainy outside as I write this, I’m closing my eyes and taking myself back to the tropics.
