Inspired by a Beautiful Beau…Kate Spade New York 2 Park Avenue Beau Bag

It’s finally warming up here and I’m able to get out a little more to shoot some pictures!    Today’s post is inspired by a bag for which I would almost donate some non-essential organ to have.  It’s the Kate Spade New York 2 Park Avenue Beau Bag.

I love the structure of the bag and I absolutely adore the colors.  Red and pink have long been a favorite combination of mine.

I struggled with finding a necklace for the outfit today as I had a pair of large earrings that I didn’t want to overshadow with a statement necklace.  I found a gold chain and a cute pin that I never wear and put them together to create a simple but cute necklace.  Oh and notice I’m rocking my sock bun…without the help of paper clips too!  Xoxo Cortneybre…

A follow up…Kate Spade Saturday Envelope Clutch…

Lo and Behold!  After my post yesterday regarding my search for Clutch purses, what should I receive today but a notification from Kate Spade Saturday advertising their Envelope Clutches!  I’ve posted a sampling of these below.  Kate Spade’s clutches are truly envelope style and have a more structured design than those made by Falconwright.  Both are stylish and versatile and I really can’t decide which I like best!

Falconwright Clutch Purses…Oh So Smashing!

I’d been looking for a large leather clutch purse forever.  I’d searched the internet and found a few for sale that were acceptable but not smashing.  I want EVERYTHING I BUY to be smashing.  Why buy small with you can buy BIG?!  If I’m devoting the time and money to searching and purchasing something, I’d like it to be special.  Mediocre doesn’t take extra time, effort or talent.

Mediocre can be bought in multiples.

So I was looking for a smashing clutch!  But, what exactly are these purses called?  Clutch bags? Pouches? Oversized Clutch Purse with Large Zipper?  After multiple days of searching and multiple key word combinations, I stumbled upon a wonderful website called Falconwright.  They offer a wonderful collection of affordable screen printed leather goods which are handmade by the founders of the site, Sandi Falconer and Danielle Wright.  Their collections are quirky and cute and oh! so smashing!

I’ve posted three of my fave clutches as today’s picture post.  Check out more of Falconwright’s collection at!  Cortneybre…
