Olivia Palermo was spotting at a gala looking like a million bucks. Her bright yellow dress is all cocktail party in the front and gown trail in the back. The long/short look isn’t always a hit but it looks pretty good on her, especially because the color’s so fun and and bright. The high-low hemline gown is by designer Katie Ermilio. Her multi-colored shoes are by Jimmy Choo and her clutch is too.
We like that she didn’t try to match the color of her accessories to her dress. The shoes add different hues to the outfit. The bag is a multi-colored animal print which actually looks like jewels from afar. The best part of the clutch is the metallic envelope-shaped lid on top. The metallic belt completes the look by cinching the dress at the waist, petite girls like her have to worry about.
The “Matryoshka” bag, named for the Matryoshka Russian doll to represent how elegant and sophisticated CH Carolina Herrera’s designer bag is. The relaxed form and structureless look of the bag gives you so many possibilities in the way you carry it and what you use it for. Originally made with soft basswood, its now made with delicate napa leather. Since there are usually five identical Russian dolls in the set, this bag also comes in five sizes. Pretty cute concept.
Not only is Glee start Dianna Agron a fan, Kate Moss is as well. I’d say that’s pretty good company if you’re looking for a stylish handbag. Stylists often advise that the way to tell whether an animal print bag is tacky or glamorous is to look at the size of the spots. If they’re realistic instead of oversized, it passes. This one’s definitely on the classy side.
