    this is the perfect bag to wear to my upcoming birthday to look and feel special! to celebrate I’m having friends to my rooftop for drinks at sunset. I’d love to pair this with a breezy end of summer outfit – my mint jeans and a flowy white blouse would go perfectly with this gorgeous bag for a subtle ombr√© look that shows off the bag’s shape, color, and texture. a pink lip and delicate gold jewelry to cap it off, plus champagne :)

    I am getting married this August 16 and my color is blue! I would wear it with my white sheer maxi dress to my rehearsal dinner! It would look perfect!

  • Reply Shannon July 8, 2014 at 11:02 am

    I would wear this to a business dinner when our company entertains potential clients. As it looks big enough to hold my IPAD. I would pair with a bold (deep) green sheath and gold accessories and use it as a clutch. IT is a great piece to go from day to night.

  • Reply Amanda July 8, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Love this bag! I go to a lot of events for work and would definitely wear it with a black dress and gold heels. Maybe a cobalt blue statement necklace or chunky pearls.

  • Reply Marina July 8, 2014 at 11:33 am

    Hot!! I would wear this with white ankle skinnies, grey off the shoulder top, nude strappy heels for a delicious pop of color and that outfit could go from work to drinks any day of the week.

  • Reply Angela July 8, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    I would wear it with just about everything, but I’m job-hunting currently, so hopefully I could wear it to my new job! I wear mostly black/white/gray so this will go with my whole closet and be a fun ‘neutral’ for me.

  • Reply rekha July 8, 2014 at 1:29 pm

    Cute bag! I would probably lemming you with the yellow skirt. I have a chiffon midi skirt in a slightly darker tone that would look great with this bag!

  • Reply Emmy July 8, 2014 at 1:32 pm

    I would wear it with a fairly neutral outfit like a sort white lace dress belted with a grey or silver or black belt and grey/silver/black shoes to match the belt and a denim vest or jacket with the sleeves rolled up if it is a bit chilly and let this GORGEOUS bag be my pop of color<3!!!!! THANK YOU SO SO SOOOO VERY MUCH:D!!!!!!!

    This purse is beautiful!!
    It’s a perfect way to bring a “pop” to any outfit.

    I’d wear this over a pair of white shorts, brown braided belt, a black and white stripped tank, jean jacket, rolled up sleeves, hair in a messy bun and brown sperry’s. I’d wear this EVERYWHERE.

  • Reply Lauren July 8, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    I would wear that with this white flared skirt dress I have. Some plain gold jewelry and I can go from day to night. The blue would really pop against the white.

  • Reply Avy July 8, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    SO adorable! I would pair this with so many outfits. I love it with a simple yellow sundress or white eyelet dress for summer days. For night I would pair it with a coral going out dress! As a medical student, I would totally take it with me to work at the hospital and pair it with grey pants, lace tops fun bracelets! love the site and thanks for the chance :)

  • Reply Jill July 8, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    this is my ultimate favorite color…and as a bright redhead I love the contrast! I was also going to say I would wear it to my wedding rehearsal dinner (getting married august 3) but I see someone already had the same idea,,,

    Sooo…I’ll say…I’ll wear it with a beautful white flowy halter dress at my first official “married” dinner on my honeymoon in crete – it wil match my eyes and the water there perfectly!! :) thanks!!

    What a great bag! I love the over-saturated blue on ostrich texture. I would wear it a coral dress, a chunky gold necklace, and some nude patent pumps :)

    Gorgeous!! I’m super pregnant, so I’d wear it with a white eyelet maternity dress and some flat gold sandals.

    And I would actually do my hair.

    I liked on FB and Instagram

  • Reply Holly July 8, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    I’d love to style the bag with a more casual look…a striped tee and overalls with a pair of sneakers or heels.

  • Reply Nora July 9, 2014 at 10:05 am

    I love this bag! I don’t have anything this color so I would carry it a lot, I think, with black and white or neutral outfits where its color and texture could really shine.

  • Reply Rebecca July 9, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    Love this color! I’d wear it with a simple black maxi dress to let it be the spotlight. It would be a great bag for a day at the mall, a dinner out, or a concert.

  • Reply Syella July 9, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    I would definitely wear this bag as a clutch with a little black dress and a simple black high heels, accesorized with a statement necklace and a classic Marc Jacob’s watch to polish the look.

  • Reply E Kay July 10, 2014 at 8:48 am

    I would wear it when I go on vacation with some of the new dresses I bought and sun hats.

    US Only … too bad. ** I’m crying maple syrup right now.**

  • Reply heather July 11, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Love this color combo and can already imagine the places and ways I would style the bag! Since I’m new to San Diego, my first spot would be on a dinner date on the bay overlooking the city lights with Coronado on the other side. Then I would look to wear this on my trip to Del Mar with my colorful DVF wrap dress. The pics make me miss the city!

  • Reply Larz July 11, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    I would totally rock that bag in paris with a killer pair of vintage sunglasses, super chic denim, and a vintage blouse. I probably would incorporate some of my grandmother’s vintage jewelry, and definitely do red lips to match the bag. In terms of shoes I may do a funky oxford with the perfect sock and a killer watch. I also would make sure to have a KILLER tophat. In Paris THEY DONT MESS AROUND.



  • Reply Kelly July 12, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Love this bag!! Love Love Love!!

    I can totally see myself carrying this with my skinny jeans and the cutest black peplum shirt that I have. The blue would be a great “pop” to the outfit. This would be a great outfit for drinking champagne with the girls on the patio of our favorite restaurant!!

  • Reply Tina Maria Tran July 14, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    Hi Beautiful!!

    I would LOVE to pair this beauty with a simple solid t-shirt crop and my denim boyfriend jeans with wedges! I want to keep it casual chic so all the attention can be focused on this bold and fun bag!

    A striped top , white jeans, and gladiators!

  • Reply Naomi July 14, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    That bag is in my absolute favorite color, which I think goes with everything! But if I had to pick a specific outfit, most likely I would wear it with a pair of skinny jeans, a neutral shirt, and a pair of brightly colored heels. Ideally on a summer date night with my husband!

  • Reply Jessica Moore July 15, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    I would style this with my new tribal dress (reds, oranges, blues). I would find a funky belt and tan wedges for a night out with the girls!
