4 Ways To Rock Your Favorite Bag In Style

Your bag, purse, hobo, tote and/or clutch, like your shoes, seals the stylish deal on an outfit. Do you ever wonder what bag to wear with what outfit? I reached out to fashion writer Jessica Brinley, for her expert opinion and here is what she wrote:

“It’s important to know how to balance your entire look. Yes, we know you have more important things to think about like getting the kids off to school rather than what bag goes with your outfit. However, I wanted to break it down for you ladies and give you some quick visuals to make it easier.

4 Ways to Rock Your Favorite Bag


1.A Louis Vuitton Bag with a Multi Colored Dress 

You can style your LV bag or patterned purse with your favorite multi-colored dress.  Don’t be afraid to mix two patterns together. 

2.Hermes and a Patterned Outfit or Dress 

A patterned dress is super easy, and pair it with your Hermessque bag for an instant chic look. You can choose a natural or black color. And, finally, complete the look with gorgeous bright colored pointed stilettos to add elegance to the look instantly.

3. Chanel Handbags and Black

Now that is something cool, isn’t it? Let you Chanel have the spot light. If you don’t look great in black, Rayne says, you can sport this handbag with all denim, navy or pop of color top with dark jeans and black heels. 

4. Patterned Tote with Casual Dress Up

When going out with your pals and you have to be ready in a jiffy, what can be better than this casual easy look? Simply grab your denim shirt and black pants while carrying your astounding patterned tote and spruce up the entire look in a few minutes.”- Jessica Brinley

If you put your hair up in a messy bun or a hat, add a comfy t-shirt and boyfriend jeans your bag can do the talking for you. And you don’t need a super pricey purse(like my Dooney and Burke in the picture which was a gift). As long as it’s high quality and no scuffs, cheap logos and/or over the top hardware you’ll be stylin’. All the bags in the photo pictured above can be interchangeable. Happy styling!

We got a big party weekend just around the corner! If you’re planning a get together or full event these stylish DIY tricks and tips that will add a chic and swanky element to your shindig. I call them tricks because it will look like you spent way more than you actually did! I had the honor of co-hosting The Show & Tell Show with producer and host, Caroline Elliott. Here are some clips from the show with celebrity party planner (Britney Spears, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, Sofia Vergara, Pierce Brosnan, Snoop Dogg) Marley Majcher. Marley aka The Party Goddess knocks her outdoor decor creations out of the park!PartyTrickswithMarleyandRayne

1. Ice it up!: You can make it creative, find out how much to buy per person and get in the know on emergency chilling tips.

2. Table Décor: Plexiglass is your tables partner. Marley did this with Katherine Heigl. It is an easy, inexpensive way to decorate in a table. Watch and learn brothers and sisters.

3. Frames aren’t just for photos: Yep, frames are your friends. Watch how Marley turns plain old frames into fab trays. PS. My favorite tip!

4. Party Style Tip: Cluster items together. Yes, you will look cute but what about your decorations? Check it out!

5. Light It Up with Lanterns: Want DIY lighting for a little pizzazz? Marley’s use of tassels and lanterns blew me away. She is so talented!

3 Summer Trends You Can Rock At Any Size

Summer can evoke fear if you’re not comfortable in your own skin. Negative thoughts like “I’m too big for the beach” or “nothing looks good on me” may creep into our heads. Please, for the love of style, stop repeating anything negative about yourself. Everyone has positives…so let’s enhance them!

Whether you’re a size 2 or a 24, wear a cup A or E, need a tankini, cover-up or just want to bump up your beach experience, I’ve got you ALL KINDS OF COVERED!

1.Floral Prints in swimwear separates: Are you over a size C in a bra or prefer more coverage on your bottom half/tummy area? Bra-sized and high-waisted swimsuits will change your life…and enhance your gorgeous curves! My friends at Sunsets Inc. have amazing swim separates for all body shapes.

2.Geometric Patterns: Going to a bbq or pool party and don’t want to walk around in only a bathing suit? Cover-ups, kimonos and maxi-dresses can be your go-to summer style in geo prints and patterns. Check out Lavish for fashion inspiration.

3.Eye Catching Beach Accessories: Yes, over-sized cat eye glasses are in, but let’s go bigger. You can create you’re own staycation getaway in your backyard or take a day trip to the beach with fashionable Beachbreallas, towels, pillows and sheets. And the best part, the Beachbrellas will also protect you from harmful UV rays. Yay!
