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.

My New Stuart Weitzman Shoes Love Them!

There is nothing like the fit of a well-crafted shoe.  And no one designs it better than Stuart Weitzman.  His shoes are crafted to fit every foot like a glove and they are very comfortable to wear.  I recently purchased the above-pictured shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue in Palm Beach.  The color is a neutral metallic so they complement many outfits in my wardrobe.  I haven’t worn them yet but I can’t wait to debut them!

I became a fan of Stuart Weitzman while watching America’s Next Top Model.  As a prize for winning a challenge on the show, Mr. Weitzman gave away several pairs of his shoes to the winner.  He was so gracious and kind to all the ladies, regardless of whether they won or loss.  Also, it was evident that he was very proud of his shoes and he work the he had put into designing them.  I gained a lot a respect for Mr. Weitzman and his company during that episode and I love buying his shoes because of it!
