A Perfect Tote for All Seasons A Cynthia Rowley Tote

2

As I was organizing my handbags by season, I came across this gem – a large Cynthia Rowley tote! As I was looking at the tote, I realized some special – it could be carried during all seasons!  With it’s durable material, it’s practically waterproof.  Its vibrant red color makes it a great shade for any season!  I’m so glad that I found this and I plan to incorporate it into my upcoming spring and summer outfits.  It is a really large bag so it’s perfect for a day of shopping!  However, it is definitely not an evening bag.  Regardless, it is a beautiful tote that fits in any wardrobe!

My New Badgley Mischka Handbag A Time to Reminisce

I recently purchased this beautiful Badgley Mischka handbag  at Saks Fifth Avenue and my description of it can only be pure perfection.  Everything about this bag is well-crafted from the zippers to the handles.  It was well-worth its retail price.

I have been a long-time admirer of Badgley Mischka since the early 2000’s when I bought the gorgeous evening gown shown below from one of their collections.  I did not know as much about fashion back then as I do now, but I did know quality and luxury.  The Badgley Mischka gown that I chose had both. The gown that I purchased was a black and tan symmetrical striped gown that fit me perfectly.  I wore it to compete in the Miss Georgia USA® 2002 pageant.  I may not have walked away with the crown that cool November night, but I certainly had the best dress thanks to Badgley Mischka.  I have never forgotten the brand or how it made me feel.  Here’s a photo of the gown itself!

When I saw the fabulous handbag above by Badgley Mischka, I had to have it.  Carrying the brand makes me reminisce about years ago when I wore this beautiful gown onstage and felt so beautiful.
