Easy Dresses and Classic Handbags

A couple weeks ago I had a really fun French Connection party with my closest blogger friends (KellyRebecca, and Christine). I ended up taking home this dress and will for sure be wearing it to death because I'm a sucker for easy dresses like these (as seen here and here). Champagne, spending time with good friends, and shopping is pretty much my idea of a perfect scenario. It was hard not to buy out the entire store but I showed restraint although there are a few pieces I'm still thinking about (this fun sequin top, these scalloped heels, and this bold printed shift dress)!

I always feel guilty making any sort of big purchase. I sold an old, vintage Coach bag on my instagram closet account and I've been wanting a nice, black handbag for a while now. My requirements were that it had to be cross-body and be big enough for my things. I saw this Ted Baker beauty and was sold on the gorgeous rose gold detailing and detachable clutch but it didn't have cross-body straps! The boutique was able to make me longer straps so I ended up buying it. I'm happy because it's a good month later and I have zero regrets on the purchase so I know it was the right choice. It's even prettier in real life too!
