Welcome To The Purse Family: Leopard Kenneth Cole + Review

Leopard Calf Hair Leopard Handbag from Kenneth Cole

The newest member of the purse family has finally arrived! She is squishy, fat, and absolutely hairy but I love her all the same. I have been on the hunt for the perfect leopard handbag forever. I didn’t want to spend a fortune upfront as I wasn’t entirely sure how much I would wear such a loud print. With a small-ish budget and very specific taste, it took me nearly a year of searching to find the perfect one.

This Kenneth Cole satchel retails for nearly $500 but I purchased it at half price for $255 with free shipping (score!). It is a convertible shoulder bag with a 10 inch drop, or a cross body when the leather chain cap is removed (as shown below). It is made of 100% calf hair with leather and brass details.

The leather chain strap can be easily snapped on or off to change the look of the bag from a shoulder to a crossbody, or for a more “biker” vibe sans leather. The closure is a turn-lock closure with a metal chained pin that can be looped within for added security.

There are two large pockets on the inside, and smaller cell phone and zipper pockets within. The bag is nearly as roomy as my LV speedy 30, and has flexible sides for extra stuffing. The sides are fastened with brass rivets and the interior is lined with cotton.

My only negative about this handbag is the calf hair, though I imagine this would be an issue with any genuine calf hair bad: it’s itchy! The hair rubs against the body and can be itchy on bare skin. I plan to use the bag mostly in the Winter so it doesn’t bother me too much, but thought it was worth mentioning.

Here are a few other leopard bags I was coveting, at various price points, just incase your budget can stretch a bit further than mine:

Have a happy Labor Day Weekend!

Layering A Wrap Dress + Purchases for China

Casual wrap dress

J.Crew sweater (old, similar), Old Navy wrap dress (my color is sold out, but loving this print), Sam Edelman sandals, Prada sunglasses, MAC lipstick in “Asian Flower”

Welcome to my attempt at reworking a wrap dress. I last wore this dress to my sister-in-law’s bridal shower in New York and loved it so much I wanted to find a way to wear it again. It was a bit chilly in SF on that particular day, so a sleeveless top wasn’t going to work. I quickly threw on this white sweater and in retrospect, i’m not digging the boxy shape it gives me. I feel like I sort of look like a big rectangle. But, in the interest of honesty, I can’t always show you guys just my winning outfits now can i?!

Still loving the side braid and my fab lipstick from MAC though!

Hard Tail Legging Review & Weekend Morning Routine

Hard Tail Capri Review

Harvard sweatshirt, Hard Tail Keyhole Capri leggings c/o, Prada sunglasses, Michael Kors sneakers

Most of the time you all see me looking put together, and well, clothed properly. But the reality of it is that on weekend mornings I throw on a variation of this exact outfit, walk down my street to the local coffee shop and grab the same Strawberry Banana Chia smoothie you see in my hand and come back home to prepare the rest of breakfast. My hair is up in a bun, I throw on my most comfy pants and sweatshirt, and sport big sunnies to avoid having to put on makeup. Since discovering Hard Tail a few years ago this routine has become decidedly more put together with the addition of their leggings rather than baggy sweatpants (truth).

Hard Tail Legging Review

These Hard Tail capri’s are my 4th pair from the line and I looooove them. I buy Hard Tail for two reasons: 1) they suck you in everywhere 2) they are high waisted and provide tummy control, and these aren’t any different. The grey design at the bottom adds some interest and the capri length versus my usual full-pant makes it easier to pair with shoes.

Hard Tail pant review

I always size down to a Medium in Hard Tail, just for added control but if you want to avoid the slight indentation of the grey lines in these particular pants, i’d recommend going with your regular size.

I’m curious, what is your weekend morning routine? Do you leave the house at all? And, below please find the other Hard Tail pants i’ve owned and sincerely loved.

ASOS Floral Skater Dress

Asos Floral Dress

J.Crew shirt and necklace, Prada sunglasses, ASOS dress (under $50!), Madewell sidewalk skimmers

This year i’m just the queen of finding cheap, amazing dresses (further evidence here and here). This ASOS floral skater dress fits like a dream and is just so cute for the warm weather we have been having in SF lately. On this particular day I layered it with a J.Crew henley and added some jewels to class it up a bit.

Asos summer dress

I don’t know if you can fully tell in the picture, but this dress has buttons all the way down the front. I love that added detail and also the seams that run all the way around the dress. It has a cap sleeve and a v-neck, what more could I possibly want?

One thing to note is that I am wearing a size 10 here and it fits perfectly over the chest and rib area. A teensy bit shorter than anticipated so size up for extra length.

And because i’m not obsessed with floral dresses, here are a few other relatively inexpensive options I had my eye on from ASOS:
