Last night I was chatting with my BFF and FFB (that's "fellow fashion blogger") MizzJ; we were both perusing the website Bag Borrow Or Steal when MizzJ found this droolworthy oversized orange patent Prada clutch:
Right away, we both started discussing what sorts of outfits we would wear the clutch with, and it was interesting to see how our differing tastes produced completely different looks. Later as I was brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed, I had a brilliant idea for a new blog feature: How Do You Wear It. Basically, MizzJ and I would pick out an item we both loved, and come up with distinct looks for it. When we've both posted our looks, we update our original "How Do You Wear It?" posts with a link to the other person's look. MizzJ, if you're reading this post, how about it? Let's adopt a collaborative blog feature!
So, back to the Prada clutch! I don't know why, but the sheer sunniness and Vitamin C cheerfulness of the clutch instantly made me think of the fabulous socialite girl on vacation. I pictured an heiress (a classy one, not the Paris Hilton-type...ick!) vacationing in Greece and island-hopping on her yacht during the day, then enjoying a sunset view and club-hopping at night, most likely in chic lounges that play electronica.
With that image in mind, here's what I'd pair the clutch with:
'Afterglow' shades from Anthropologie, $24.73
'Gwen' shirt from Teenflo
Classic bermuda denim short from Banana Republic, $89
Louis Vuitton monogram S-Lock bracelet
Chan Luu diamond circle earrings
Burberry T-strap sandal from Nordstrom.com, $595
Update: In case you haven't seen it, MizzJ has posted her take on how she'd wear the orange Prada clutch here.
