Ombre & Patent Leather – Two Trends that go well together

I’ve noticed for awhile that Ombre has become a trend this year. I really like this trend. I think I really became aware of it and how much I liked it when I saw Gwen Stefani’s wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior back in 2002.

Before I left for vacation I bookmarked several Ombre items I found that I liked but I’ll post some of those another time. This post is about some items I recently found that incorporate the Ombre trend with another popular trend I like Patent Leather.

Bloomingdales

Bloomingdales showed an Ombre and Patent Leather bag by Maxx in their recent catalog.

Maxx New York Women’s Degradé Ombre Large Tote Bag – $198
Comes in Purple as well.

Also at Bloomingdale’s was this bag by L.A.M.B (seems Gwen likes the Ombre trend in things other than Wedding Dresses)

L.A.M.B. Manchester Ombre Patent Leather Tote – $495

The above bags can be yours with a 20% discount by using the code FLOWER now thru May 21st at Bloomingdales.com.

But Bloomingdales is not the only place offering items combining these two trends. Some of my other favorite shopping sites have some cool Patent and Ombre items. Enjoy!

    Not thinking Swimwear season? You should cause it is sale time!

    I know Fall is upon us and everyone is thinking sweaters and boots but you should be thinking swimwear! Why? Because you can get amazing deals now. Not only for summer next year but also in case someone decides to whisk you away for a winter getaway to the sun & sand.

    I try to do it every season especially since my Dad moved to Florida so Holidays are spent by the pool ;). But unlike a few years ago I don’t look good in bikinis so I’ve been opting for tankinis which can hide a multitude of figure flaws (which maybe in my head but that is a whole nother blog…LOL).

    So this year I decided to look into one pieces but not the frumpy kind your Mother use to wear. I’ve been on a retro kick of late so I was looking more for bathing suits your Grandmother might have worn in the 50s or 40s. I found a few I liked:

    Nordstrom.com:

    Juicy Couture Beach Halter One Piece
    Was $155.00
    Now: 92.90

    Bloomingdales.com

    Juicy Couture Beach Skirted Maillot
    Was $164.00
    Now $114.80

    Carmen Marc Valvo Draped Tankini
    Now: $99.99



    Carmen Marc Valvo Draped Swimsuit

    Was $150.00
    Now $90.00

    Carmen Marc Valvo Twisted Bandeau
    Was 158.00
    Now 94.80

    I tried them all on and decided on the last one by Carmen Marc Valvo for $94.80. I look HOT if I do say so myself and reminiscent of a 40s/50s pin-up girl which was the look I was going for.
