eShakti.com giveaway and fashion link up

My job requires me to dress in at least business casual. So I only wear jeans on weekends. A few days ago, when I looked though all my old photos, I found I really don’t have a lot of casual looks. So for today’s post I decided to start the weekend early! You’re welcome! But we fashion bloggers are always on the clock so even when we’re wearing our cool on trend ripped jeans, we have to do it right. Which I am with my SUEDE FINISH SHORT TRENCH COAT from eShakti.

Last Monday I wrote about my great experience with eShakti, you can read more here. They have so many choices but I fell in love with this trench coat. The color, style and versatility made it an instant hit for me. Don’t believe me? Well your own eyes wouldn’t lie to you, so here are a few different looks built around the same coat.

When I am looking for a new item to allow into my walk-in closet, I always like to envision at least two outfits that I could create by pairing the newcomer with what I already have. And most important, they must have the ability to make me look like I’m dressing my A game. Hey, entry into my wardrobe isn’t for wimpy clothes. My outfits have to work hard to earn a spot in my fashion rotation and especially if they ever hope to be featured on my blog. You see, I am a very picky person when it comes to shopping. I have to be. I’m not just shopping for me but for all of you too! No. No, you don’t have to thank me. It’s all just part of the job!

Nicole Lee patched bag review

Nicole Lee patched bag review

Have you noticed those hundreds of patches all over jeans, jackets, and bags are suddenly kind of a thing? Well, I’ve had an eye on them already for a long time.

I’ve realized that I always need something to make my outfit more than just pretty. It needs some soul, happy soul in fact. I usually try to reach this goal by using different colors. I guess by now you should already know why my blog is called COLOR AND GRACE.

Another way I like to use, is adding some really funky pieces to break down the seriousness and bring the fun and games into a proper or uptight outfit.

These last few months have been very hard for my husband and me. He just recovered from some surgery he had a couple weeks ago and today it’s my turn! Don’t worry, I am not blogging from the Operating Room. 😉 I like to work ahead so this post I actually scheduled last week. My poor husband may be getting his second surgery in the near future. What does this have to do with a post about patches you may ask? And I mean other than the fact that we’re both getting “patched up” recently (HA! See what I did there?). The point is, life really is unpredictable! Everybody knows this, but it really hits home when you have some health problems.

So why not have more fun when you still can? You know what they say, no one ever says with their last breath that they wish they had spent more time at the office!

Because of my new and improved attitude, I love this ATHENA PATCH PRINT HANDBAG from Nicole Lee very much. It just screams fun and carefree. When I first laid my eyes on it, I just couldn’t stop smiling. It made me feel that life is so good again. Lol! And the bonus? It can be carried showing either side.

If you are not familiar with this brand, Nicole Lee is an LA based handbag company. It had it’s launch in 2004. Since then, the company has quickly emerged into the mainstream market; gaining never-ending recognition from magazine editors to Handbag 101 Pro’s. I even found their cute backpack on the Walmart website but it was sold out.

With unique designs and funky details, Nicole Lee has created a collection that is continuously pushing the envelope when it comes to hot fashion trends. Their motto is “We believe fashion should be fun and refreshing.” I love how they have the same fashion philosophy as mine. 😉

NL has so many cute products, not just handbags. They also have shoes, jewelry and bags for men as well. I litarily spent a half day looking through their collections. There are more things that I liked very much too.

Like LIANA PRINT SLIP-ONS, some funky and comfy slip-ons for travel. Or SOPHIA LASER CUT BOSTON BAG to go along with my sophisticated winter coats. Even a cool WANDA DENIM PRINT BACKPACK PURSE when I am strolling down the sidewalk some weekend…
