Vegas Baby!!!! by fashionablechicks featuring clutch bags

Ok sooooo, I guess my last post about what to pack was quite a hit! I’ve had dozens of people ask me to do one for them. My other sista cousin is heading to Las Vegas with a big group of friends this weekend. My question is- when do I get to go on a trip???

Although in Vegas you can go a little crazy with clothes, I wanted to put together outfits that I knew she would feel comfortable in and also wear back home.
1. Day wear- Something casual and easy to walk around in. I picked this cute blazer that will transition so well into spring. I’m always cold in casinos so I paired with a cute pair of jeans and these super cute Kade Spade wedges. I added a pretty spectacular bag- but this Marc Jacobs bag will NEVER go out of style. Its fab. Add a cute cuff and the coral necklace for color and you are good to go.
2. Night- Again Im always cold in Vegas so I paired skinny J. Brand jeans with a great beaded top. Add a super high pair of stilettos and honey you will win BIGGGGG! Grab the same cuff and add a clutch. You’ll look so hot!
3. Dress Night- I love a dress. One stop shop, easy to pack. Grab the same clutch, add a Loren Hope necklace, a bunch of bangles, great bold cocktail ring. More, more and more accessories!
4. Don’t forget a great pair of shades-it is BRIGHT in Vegas BABY!
Did I mention that all of these clothes came from Piperlime? Well, they did! Shop away!
XOXO,
Happy Shopping Girls and Bet on Black for me!

What to Pack…..

What to Pack.....
My cousin is heading to Costa Rica next week and I told her I would help her shop and pack.
I put together a few things that you can mix and match in order to get a bunch of different looks without packing a ton. I have to admit I am a terrible packer but if you plan ahead and lay it all out it will help!

1. Evening wear- Resort Casual, mix it up with shoes and jewelry. This JOIE jumper is so cute!
(Rebecca Taylor, Joie, Velvet)

2. Day wear- I love a denim shirt, they are great to throw in your purse or beach back, use it as a jacket or coverup as the sun goes down. Pair it with a cute pair of white shorts, hat and a wedge and you are good for a great excursion! Love the K. Jacques sandals- I promise you will wear them out! (J. Brand, J.Crew, K.Jacques)

3. I love Missoni and I especially love their bathing suits! This cover up is great because it is sheer and you still look sassy without feeling completely covered up. (Missoni, Michael Kors)

4. A definite is a pair of white jeans- you can wear these with a great top for dinner or with a tank for daytime! A must!! (Old Navy, Spendid, Kate Spade)

-These three pairs of shoes should do the trick for all of the outfits!
-Add a great clutch and you are good to go!

Happy Shopping!

Back to Work Wants….

As most of you know, I’m leaving the world of fashion for a bit and entering the business world!! That doesn’t mean I’ll stop writing about it though! No worries! You all have been so supportive and I promise I’ll keep blogging. (Maybe some of you will start to follow my software blog although I doubt it) Of course I can’t start a new job with out thinking about my working wardrobe. So for all of you who work or are going back to work here are some of my “WANTS” to get my business attire started! I’m determined to not get in the rut of business boring! With a couple of key purchases (i.e. black slacks and a black pencil skirt) I should be able to incorporate some of my fun Poppy’s pieces with my conservative pieces! Bring on the handbags, shoes and jewelry to spice it up a bit!
It’s all about the Accessories anyway!

1. Black Pencil Skirt (check)
2. Joie Ivory Blouse- great alone or layered with a blazer (check)
3. Handbag big enough for a laptop! 
4. Nude suede pump (check)
5. Black Calvin Pump (check)
6. Theory Slacks and Blazer
7. Classic dresses
I’ll keep you updated! I sure will miss my Poppy’s Girls but I’ll still keep one foot in the door!
Back to Business,
Fashionable WORKING Chick
