Edie Parker – Personalize Your Bag

Brett Heyman’s line of clutches and bags EDIE PARKERicon is inspired by the mid-century styles favored by showgirls and socialites of the ’50s and ’60s. The brand’s glitter-finish and acrylic designs are all-American – each one sketched in New York and handmade by skilled craftsmen in Chicago using New Jersey-sourced materials.

A Different Angle

This season’s bags are reminiscent of the Bauhaus movement. Forget slouchy hobos and complicated origami silhouettes; fall’s bag is decidedly geometric in form.

Let Your Bag Do the Talking

clutch_bags_statement

Clutches are small, fine and compliment every feminine outfit just perfectly. This season, a statement bag gets a whole new meaning and can be taken literally. Only your personal taste and your style decide, which one will be your favourite. With these quotes, the stage is all yours and you set a point right from the start.

A new season, a new year,
a new opportunity to celebrate
love, hope, joy and life,
welcome 2016.

I have started the new year with a digital detox. No blogging, just relaxing. This little break has been absolutely needed. So I have fulfilled my first resolution in 2016.

Some of you are always asking me how I clean my closet. The ones who have been following me for a while know that I don’t, I like to keep everything. Every single piece will have its time again.

If you don’t have the space or prefer having a neat, organized closet, I recommend this little trick. Hang all your clothes in a reverse direction, so that the open end of the hanger is facing you. After wearing an item, put it back the normal way.

In the end of 2016, you will see which pieces you have never touched and you can surely let got of those.
