Punxsutawney Phil, you stinkin' liar. 'no six weeks of winter', our sweet ass. We love hot chocolate and warm sweaters and curling up by the fire with our honey as much as the next girl, but it's getting old FAST. We are so ready for spring! With that in mind, we're counting down the days until March 21st, the official first day of spring, with some fabulous Aspire/Acquire posts featuring ideas for spring fashion and frolicking. Bring on the warm weather!
Get a little thrilling this spring and eschew neutrals and soft colors in your accessories. We're seeing a lot of crazy lovely handbags in bold, warm hues and we've already decided we're big fans. Today's choices reflect our burgeoning admiration for these sunny purses. On the aspire side of coin we have the Cole Haan Gramercy Archer Satchel ($298). Cole Haan makes a fabulous handbag - their leather is both durable and supple and their designs are practical but stylish. If you're digging the color but not the price we've lowered the ante with our acquire option. The Jackie Perforated Satchel by Big Buddah ($85) is a charmer with eyelet-esque detailing and pewter hardware.
And, as always, if you've got something you love that's out of your reach, email us and we'll find you some more budget-friendly lookalikes for a future Aspire/Acquire feature!
