Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Valentino Kaleidscope Stone Tote

Forget everything I said recently about how bad things come in threes and that means that there would soon be another bad Valentino bag for me to snark on soon. I have never been more utterly and profoundly wrong on this blog before, at least not that I can remember, because I can’t help but drool all over the Valentino Kaleidscope Stone Tote. Who needs a man - I love this bag so much that I would gladly cuddle with it at night instead.

I fully realize that some of you may look at this thing and think that this is indeed the completion of the trio of bad Valentino purses that I had foretold, but hear me out on this. If all of the sewn-on rhinestones were the same color or the same shape, then I’d be ready to dismiss it a tacky and cheap-looking. But the subtlety of the ombre color change and the seemingly random variance in stone shape (but not size, so that they look somewhat uniform) gives this bag a level of sophistication that perfectly balances its over-the-top shine. I love a statement bag more than anything else in fashion, and this one might rank as one of my all-time favorites. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2995.

D.S Pick of the Day: Balmain Crystal Animal-Print Boots

These Balmain Crystal Animal-Print Boots are the perfect marriage between rocker chic and exotic edge. The suede foldover boot is anything but basic with the beautiful Swarovski crystal animal print embellishments all over the foldover of the boot. Before noticing that it is an animal print design, these boots have a punk rock feel with the black and silver coloring, with the crystals looking like studs.
These boots are truly anything but basic, and will instantly add glam and sparkle to any outfit. While I would definitely wear these for night, there are so many ways to wear them. From a mini dress to tucked in skinny jeans, you can’t really go wrong, and these boots will definitely add an extra punch to your outfit. These boots definitely come with a high price tag, so I don’t think they will be in my closet anytime soon, but I definitely have them on my wish list, and are definitely worth saving up for. These boots pack so much flavor and edge, with such a sleek look, you can’t really go wrong. Plus, with some silver stacking bangles, you can really complete the look with ease.
