What I Wore : Studded Bows

Confession time. 
Do you ever pick up something that you love on sight, bring it home, stare at it a little, try it on, stare at it again, put it away and then...forget to wear it?
Yeah, that happened with this here belt. 
Which I happen to l.o.v.e. 

Top - Zara | Belt -  Zara | Skirt - Zara | Shoes - Nine West | Bracelets - J Crew, Stella Dot | Watch - Michael Kors
This did not happen with the stunning skull clutch sent to me by my beautiful and dear blog friend Veronika.
I reach for it all the time. Evening. Daytime cross-body. Surprising versatile and you wouldn't believe how much this little wonder holds!

So, truth. Have you? Do you? 
How many goodies in your closet still have tags on them?
I promise I won't tell. 

Linking up here and here


  1. I love the clutch! Such an amazing colour and you put everything together so well.

    Yes, indeed I tend to keep the tags until I wear it for the first time. It does happen that I make a purchase which I am not quite sure about afterwards (we all do I think) but of course it is too late to return it... at least I can sell it on ebay "BNWT".

  6. Wow, I love everything about this look, the chunky gold bracelet and watch, the bow belt and that incredible clutch! I love *most* of what's in my closet but have gotten a lot better this past year. There used to be a lot of things with tags in there. Now if I don't love it, I don't buy it. Thanks so much for linking up your chic look today!

  16. Dearest Susan,
    Love your very professional first photo; WOW! One-two-three and than you flew those dolman sleeves into my face as a surprise. Lovely belt and clutch and jewelry. You ARE Italian by name and by way of your wardrobe styling. By the way; no tags in my closet either... I know what I want and never buy anything that I don't really LOVE at first sight as it will not work later.
    Hugs to you,

  17. Too many items, sadly. In fact, I was just admonished earlier tonight by my husband for a dress I found at the back of the closet (unworn). But that belt? I don't think I would've forgotten about that! And the bag? Perfect.

  18. That clutch is to die for! You look gorgeous!
