Ananas Handbags

I am excited that we are nearing the end of winter and it is time to introduce some new colors and some new items into my wardrobe. Although it seems all together impractical to have a cream handbag in new york city I stumbled upon these Ananas Handbags and would love to get the cream own. I really like the shape of these bags and the cool earthy wood accents. Available at Sway & Cake

Shop Style: The Ultimate Shopping Tool

A representative from Shop Style just sent me an email telling me about the launch of their new site. It is a revolutionary idea for online shopping.These days there is so much out there on the web that it is hard searching a bunch of different sites to find what you want. Shop Style has joined with some of the biggest names in online shopping including: shopbop, anthropologie, forever21 etc. and created a shopping search engine. I really love the Stylebook feature where you can create your own favorites or check out what other people have put together. Here are some of my favorite things in my Stylebook on Shop Style.

Proenza Schouler for Target

I am sure you have been seeing the billboards around town for Target's latest designer line Proenza Schouler. Proenza Schouler is actually based in NYC - Yeah! It is nice to see an American design team for Target. Maybe the sizing won't be so absurd. I was actually having dinner last night and the girl next to me pulled this out of her bag to show her friend. It looks much better in real life than pictured on the web!
