WEEK OF FEB 1: Metallics, Pops of Red, What Does Your Bag Say About You?


(ICYMI) Every Thursday we drop our new arrivals & walk you through some looks we put together on Instagram.

B is back (she was OOO for a week)…Sav is STILL HERE (she was not OOO for a week)… We’re discussing metallics… pops of reds… Looking inward about what your go-to bag says about you. Let’s break down this week’s L00Ks with Sav.

assembling the look with 3 key ideas:

(1) comfort  (2) metallics  (3) the Clare V. Moyen Messenger

We spend much of February in NYC at trade shows & appointments picking out all the lovely things you see in the shop. This look had me thinking about form and function for these types of days. The regular size of the Clare V Moyen Messenger is large enough for all the work-while-traveling essentials.

styling the Madge Embellished Buttondown

My graphic-design brain had me start with a color palette and go from there. A little bit 80s, a little bit Coastal Grandma (remember that micro-trend?), and a little bit manifesting warmer springtime weather.

styling the Clare V. Petit Claude Bag

This new Clare V. style had us contemplating what our bags say about us. Slouchy? Structured? Crossbody? Shoulder? Do you mind digging around in a big oversized bag for your wallet? Do you carry your entire life in your bag or just the essentials?

I started with mixing typography in the bag strap and graphic sweater vest and brought in some primary colors to let the clean white (yes the color is called Brie) bag pop.
