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.

Milder climates during the so-called winter months leaves one with this beautiful Diane von Fürstenberg jumpsuit as an option for so many occasions.  One could wear this jumpsuit to lunch with the ladies, shopping, or to various daytime meetings.  I also think it is a perfect island vacation outfit.  It can be worn on the airplane so that you arrive in style.  The jumpsuit is perfect for beachside romantic dinners  or daytime shopping excursions.  It is a very versatile piece that can be worn either in daytime or evening depending on the way its accessorized.

The accessories that I have chosen for the jumpsuit in the above collage are for an evening look.  For a daytime look, I would have chosen wedge shoes or flats and a more casual bag.

For the evening look, I selected the Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik pumps in neutral colors so as not to draw focus away from the jumpsuit. Instead, choose either of these pumps to complement the jumpsuit instead of taking away from its beauty.  I also chose two neutral evening bags or clutches.  I personally prefer the Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Knot Minauadiere because it has more visual interest.  Of course, either bag goes with either pair of shoes as all the accessories are neutrals.

This white jumpsuit is a perfect way to brighten your winter whether you live in a warmer climate, are visiting warmer temperatures, or are experiencing warmer temperature where you live.  It is a conversation piece that your friends, family, and maybe some strangers, will love!
