Currently Coveting — August 2016

Dionysus Leather Top Handle Bag
Gucci is arguably one of the hottest luxury handbag brands at the moment, thanks largely to the incredible talents of former head accessories designer turned Creative Director Alessandro Michele. He has certainly breathed new life into the brand and it was so desperately needed. 

After the departure of former Creative Director Tom Ford, the brand lost its luster and lots of revenue to boot. The introduction of the Dionysus collection in Fall 2015, seems to have been the type of reboot the House of Gucci needed as women all over the world have been clamoring to get their hands on the variety of bags offered. 

Named for the Greek god of wine, fertility and bacchanalia, the Dionysus collection clearly was designed to arouse the female hormones, and mine have been raging since the collection was released. The Dionysus Bloom and Tian (click here to read my post on the latter) print collections are amazing, but this leather top handle bag in the signature Gucci red & green sent my all of my senses into hyper-overdrive! Simply put, this bag is EVERYTHING and more … and I’m not the only fan! This is definitely on my list of MUST HAVES!

Next on my “Currently Coveting” list are two other items from Gucci. If you can’t already tell, I am a lover of almost all things Gucci and have been for most of my life. I just have a certain affinity for the Italian fashion house and I don’t see it changing anytime some. Me and Gucci have a history honey!

Metallic Leather Crossover Sandal

Simply put, this is a pair of shoes that I think every fashion forward woman should own. Not only are they stylish, they serve all kinds of comfort and attitude. These lust-worthy shoes were launched as part of Gucci’s Resort 2016 collection and are available in various colors and heights. I love this two tone version and hope to one day call them my own!

Gucci Leather Knot Sandal 

How fricking sexy and stylish is this fashion forward shoe? A high heel sandal with a thin heel, features numerous thin straps that come together to form a front top knot and around the back heel. While this shoe comes in a variety of colors, the emerald green leather just increases the elegance of this shoe. The insole includes the snake print commonly featured in many of the pieces from Gucci’s the Fall/Winter 2016 collection.

Printed Fit and Flare Dress

This dress made me literally gasp for air when I first saw it on the Eloquii website. It has everything I like: bright colors, mixed print, a flared skirt and lots of pizzazz! I literally stalked the website daily until the “coming soon” banner had disappeared and the dress was available for purchase. The team behind Eloquii’s Instagram account even tagged me in their post announcing the dress was available and that they would be giving the dress to one lucky follower for free. Yea, it was that serious! 

 Crochet Lace Blouse

I am currently on Stalker Status yet again, waiting (im)patiently for this adorable crochet top to become available for purchase. I have some serious plans for this beauty!

     Color Splice One Piece

I know we are nearing our last days of summer, but I live in Georgia and spend a considerable amount of time in Florida and California where summer extends well beyond its expiration day. With that said, this retro-style swimsuit can still get plenty of use well into the winter months in the South. I plan to make as many waves as possible in this stunning piece, and have plans to pair it with a long sheer open front coverup with a train. Talk about making an entrance at the pool or on a boat around Biscayne Bay. Perfection.

So there you have it, the clothing and accessories I am currently coveting this month. Let’s see how many of these items my husband will support me adding to my collection! Shhhh …. don’t tell him that one or two items on my list may or may not be on their way to our mailbox! 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
