Love Zahra + Gigi New York + Blogger Nation

 Love Zahra / Upbeat Soles / Eat Pray Wear Love

This week I’m thrilled we are partnering with Gigi New York to feature their newest tassel clutch. As you can see it comes in a variety of colors, and it is made of high-quality leather. Ever since I was a kid and saw my friend had monogrammed bath towels in her bathroom, I’ve loved the idea of monogramming. It just feels so luxurious when something is personalized just for you. Gigi New York has a huge selection of premium quality pieces that can be personalized, including luggage, handbags, and accessories. They even have a collaboration going with one of my favorite bloggers, With Love From Kat. Her line is great for gift giving so definitely check it out.

About the look, I’ve only recently come to the realization that I like wearing black. I’ve always felt like it washed me out, like how someone with pale skin might feel about wearing white. Over time through my fashion evolution I have found some of my favorite statement looks are when I’m wearing black. To make it interesting I always mix and match textures when going all black, also a trick that instantly makes clothes look way more expensive.

Side note: I’ve always been attracted to the strong and silent types, case in point, my husband. I suppose it’s because it is a nice contrast to myself (sort of weak and extremely chatty). Along the color spectrum I would define him as black – and myself as maybe a fuchsia.  Just as how an all black ensemble exudes a powerful vibe like no other color can – black, by definition is literally a color without a hue or color. (Stay with me guys, I promise I have a point) With black the absence of color is due to the fact that it is purely and completely absorbed by light. Just as the best things in life don’t try to get attention, they just do.

Ok back to the look – I’m going a bit 70’s boho today with my floppy hat, tie neck blouse, and high-waist jeans. To achieve the highest contrast, I’m pairing with my new Gigi New York monogrammed tassel clutch in Bone. The clutch is a stand alone beauty, It is made of high quality embossed Python Leather, and  it is the perfect size for an evening out and also the perfect size and shape to toss in a tote bag for use the next morning. I’ve also got my eye on this bag which I think is the perfect shape and color for Fall…

In case you aren’t already aware of what Blogger Nation is, I’ve partnered with 5 fabulous bloggers from across the country, and each season we search for our favorite things and then collaborate with the brands to show you how we would style them.
