The “It” Bag of the Season

similar faux fur jacket here and here
Every year around the holidays I find myself in need of a dressier bag. I want one that can be carried as a clutch or a shoulder bag and that can be dressed up or down, depending on what I’m wearing and where I’m headed. The Tory Burch Britten clutch from Nordstrom fulfills all my needs – since I got it a few weeks ago I have been carrying it nonstop. It really does seem to go with every single outfit! Not only that, but it’s a bag that can be carried year-round, not just during the holiday season. πŸ™‚ You can see all of Tory Burch’s handbags at Nordstrom here.
Can we also talk about this sequin dress? I love sequins. I am wearing the dress (again) to Chris’s grad school Christmas party tomorrow night. It would also be perfect for NYE!
