What's in My Clutch?

This post is not the type of post I'll be doing too often...you know, the outfit post.  Mainly because this isn't a fashion blog & I'd rather post about home interiors & fashion accessories instead. Anyhow, I was in a CRAZY search mode for red pants & finally found some! You'll never believe where I found them & how much...more about that later! 

So let's begin....the clutch was gifted to me by Rachel Roy - lucky me! I love it! It's a small quilted clutch in a color called forest. I believe they also have a few other colors available on her site here. The clutch is small but it fits a lot.... as you'll see in this post! 

The black blazer ....hmmm It's old, I don't even remember where it's from.

The white T-shirt is from Zara. I bought it on sale about a month ago, it's so comfortable.

One of my leopard pieces, the thin leopard belt I bought at Express a week ago.

The cute shoes which I blogged about here, are by Rachel Roy. They look sooo pretty..... remind me of booties!
Leopard print bracelets from Aldo.

Sunglasses are Ray Ban.

iphone leopard case by JCrew. It's my new favorite case as you can see. 

Hair is real- not extensions.

And....the RED jeans are from Hot Topic. Get this, they were only $29 !!! Can you believe it?? 

My guy bought me two pairs, a size 3 & 5 just in case one didn't fit! The idea was to send the one that didn't fit back. Well, they both fit just fine..of course one tighter than the other, but not too bad. I'm normally a size 4 though. The one I'm wearing in the picture is a size 5 & they're long at the bottom! Perfect! They also have a bunch of other colors as well....
This outfit below is pretty much the same minus the red pants & black blazer.

This particular HOT pink blazer (below) I purchased at Zara about a month ago! I love Zara......I always find something to buy there & its one of the few shops here in town that I shop at.  Funny thing....the blazer was the last one they had and it was my size! How convenient.

Oh yea and the black skinny jeans are from Zara too...they have some cool stitching on them. You can see it in the closeup shot...they fit really nice, but I bought them about a year ago....so they're not available anymore unfortunately.

Like the bracelet? It's from Express. Bought it last week...

iPhone case- once again, JCrew.

So, what's in my clutch? Well, when I carry a clutch I tend to keep it light. So, my normal makeup bag is out of the picture. I only carry a few essentials like:

MAC lip gloss & MAC powder
Michael Kors Hollywood travel perfume
LOLLIA travel hand lotion
Dark Chocolate Nibs - my favorite from Trader Joe's
