I’m a really, really big Marchesa fan. That normally wouldn’t have anything to do with affordably priced handbags, but today, it does.
Marchesa’s finely ruffled confections cost many, many thousands of dollars, but the same aesthetic can be had at a lower price from different sources. This time, it can be had in a handbag with the Sondra Roberts Floral Organza Clutch. (more…)
Lately I’ve been preoccupied with vintage (mostly jewelry, but anything fashion-related will do), and if the shows in Paris, Milan and New York recently were any indication, I’m not the only one. Midcentury shapes and colors are all the rage, and now’s the time to get in on the trend before it trickles down to the masses.
Actual vintage shopping can be difficult – it takes an impeccable eye to weed through the racks and boxes of crap to find a gem, and even when you dedicate some time and thought to it, there’s no guarantee that you’ll actually find anything you want to wear or use. That’s where vintage revival pieces come in, and my current favorite is the Sondra Roberts Pleated Box Clutch. The color, shape and materials are perfect for the tailored looks that will be coming our way in about six months. (more…)

If you’re the sort that gets all excited about Valentine’s Day, then the Sondra Roberts Box Clutch may be the perfect thing to add to your date night outfit. If you’re the sort that gets all in a snit over it, then this clutch is precisely what you need to avoid for the next month. (more…)
