Here are my favorite picks from this lovely label. Which one is your favorite?
I’m loving the Lily shopper, its splendid plum/orchid hue and its lovely floral lining. It also has a practical large, double inner leather pocket and is the perfect size for storing your workday essentials, like your tablet or a compact laptop.
The Taro clutch reminds me of the song ‘I’m walking on sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves, doesn’t it? I love its vibrant sunny yellow shade and I think it’s the perfect accessory to add a strong color statement to a neutral outfit.
I love these quirky linen pillows and my sofa danced the happy polka dot summer dance with these lovelies! One side dot, one side floral, you mix and you play with your mood du jour! My favorites are the pink ones…
… but the blue ones – with their jumbo dots [pictured above] – sing to my heart as well!
And this blue Calla shopper is my new favorite companion for running neighborhood errands. I love its timeless and elegant color; it can go with denim for a casual look, or a business outfit for a meeting in town. What a great versatile piece!
