2 Ways to Style Durango Leather Purse

The moment I decided to take on fashion blogging, I was both nervous and excited. Nervous because I knew I had a limited amount of clothes to showcase as I am no celebrity who gets clothes for free! At the same time, I was excited because it was a great way to challenge myself to be creative with how I style my clothes. 

That is exactly what I wanted to showcase today. I was sent this Belle Star Purse from Durango. I picked it because of its ability to become a versatile addition to my wardrobe. I hate having to buy every type of bag for each occasion. So why not buy one that you can use different ways? The color also helps to render its versatility. It is neutral and can therefore go with almost everything. Thus, I came up with two looks that I like wearing this bag with. 

Aside from the bag, I would like to showcase two ways I've styled a floral top I recently got from HerBench. I love basic and simple tops like this. You can pair them anything!

Look #1

Top: HerBench / Pants: Jag Jeans / Purse: Durango (c/o) / Shoes: Mendrez

The first look is a casual ensemble and your typical day-to -day wear for running errands. I don't normally wear jeans lately (I prefer dresses and skirts) but when I do, I want to be as comfortable as can be. This top screams comfort in every sense of the word. Plus, I loved pairing it with my new fuchsia pointed toe flats from Mendrez. The Durango purse serves as the perfect finishing touch to the outfit because it is large enough to carry all of my essentials. It also comes with a detachable sling so I can wear it over my shoulder when I want to. 

Look #2

Top: HerBench / Skirt: Persunmall / Purse: Durango (c/o) / Necklace: Sheinside / Shoes: Mendrez

In this second look, I am going for a casual glam look. I paired the floral blouse with a cobalt pencil skirt and added some statement accessories into the mix (it's from Sheinside for less than $10!!). I switched the pointed toe flats with my new favorite nude heels for an elegant chic look. 

Which is your kind of style - 1 or 2? If you fancy getting your own Durango Belle Star Purse, do so now because it is currently on sale!

Summer Maxi Dress Wishlist: Dressve

At the risk of sounding like a broken record player, I am obsessed with maxi dresses. But during summer time, there is an extra incentive of wearing these long, flowy dresses due to the hot weather. Even when things get a little warmer than I'd like to, a summer maxi dress will keep me fresh and stylish. Even though I have a ton of these dresses already, adding some more members into the family is always a welcome treat. The website offers a comprehensive selection of all styles and colors of maxi dresses. In fact, they have choices from casual to formal maxi dresses!

Dressve not only offers beautiful extra long maxi dresses, but they are also reasonably priced. You can buy your own within the $20-$30 range, which isn't a bad deal. Summer might be close to wrap up in the country but I still have a new beach escape planned soon. I need to pick one or two of these. You can browse the full selection here:

Which of these cheap maxi dresses are you coveting?

Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush in Honey Pie

Hurray to my first cheek blush review! And this one is a doozy. Butter London is a famous cosmetics and nail polish brand so I was excited to try their cream blusher line for the first time. I got my Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush from My Hair Care, a leading retailer of hair and beauty products in Australia and online. 

The website describes Honey Pie as a peach-pink creme. It comes in a sheer and cream formula for ease of application - indeed you can use your fingers to blend it nicely onto your cheeks. What I love most about this cream blusher is the fact that it provides that natural sheen to your cheeks while being subtle enough to add color to your skin. You can definitely add a few more coats for a fiercer blush - it's up to you!

This has definitely been my go-to blush for daily use. My cream blush is in Honey Pie but you can choose from several other shades namely Naughty Biscuit, Abbey Rose and Pistol Pink

What is your favorite blusher? Do you prefer cream or powder formula?
