This is not new, I’ve loved Clare Vivier’s simplistic, minimal, pared-down bags since I first discovered them. I always have the messenger bag in the back of my mind and lately, I’ve been loving the clutches, and especially this pochette with the HOT PINK stripe!!!
I’ve also become obsessed with Clare herself via her blog, and now I MUST find a suitable substitute for the gorgeous oli + me bracelet she’s wearing in this picture:
Clare’s bags always seem to me to be just what I’m looking for – I love the bright colors and functional designs. They’re also affordable ($300-$400) and made in Los Angeles with lots of love. Luckily, one of my favorite local boutiques, Spartan, carries a selection of Clare’s bags, so I can go in and fondle them in person every once in a while until I’m ready to finally take the plunge….

Do you know what color nailpolish she is wearing? So cute and looks great with white!
no, i have no idea what color she’s wearing…you could probably find something similar by essie? i love it, but i’m not sure i have the guts to wear it!!!
I love Clare Vivier! I was so giddy when I found out she and KB were moving in next to Stark (Where I work part time), the store is so cute. I was fondling that Envelope Clutch for 20 minutes yesterday. The stripe is hand-painted!
Adriana: I actually searched for like an hour trying to figure out the polish, and the closest I could find is the American Apparel Neon. But that said, I’m skeptical as to if she would support AA. They totally knocked off her large foldover clutch, they call theirs the “Oversized Pouch.”

omg, how lucky are you!!! i covet her bags…
and i looked at target today for a similar color nail polish and didn’t find anything – it’s actually more of a unique color than i thought!
Love her blog too! She does that disheveled chic thing so well, and always looks so effortless! Sigh.
