piperclutch1.pngThis oversized faux leather studded clutch from indie line Deux Lux ($76 from is the perfect bag for women who want to make a statement. Add it as a “wow” piece to your little black dress or with jeans and a plain tank top for nights out. The Piper is also very functional, with inside pockets and a removable gold chain.

Deux Lux was launched in 2005 by bi-coastal mother/daughter team Fatemeh Mahdavi and Sara Naghedi. Their dream was to deliver “accessible style” all women, so their bags look lux but remain affordable ($38-160). 

This Sailor’s Lover Blouse ($75) by Etsy seller Esoneofone is very soft and feminine with a trendy nautical vibe. This piece is a great investment because it is seasonless - it looks just as good with black skinny jeans and boots as it would with capris and sandals. You could also dress it up with a long necklace or by tucking it into a pencil skirt. Click here to read more about this top.
