When you love color the way I do, you want it in every part of your life. It’s not always easy to find the perfect “thing” to cure your color cravings but when you do, it feels like it is heaven sent! I got this amazing matching purse and wallet sponsored from my amazing friends at mywalit.
Founded in 2005 in Lucca, Italy, mywalit is known for its colorful leather wallets, bags, coin purses and handbags. From vibrant stripes to fun color blocking, mywalit has you covered. When I styled this look I kept close to hues of blue simply not to overwhelm the eye. I love color but if done the wrong way it can just be too much. I wanted to incorporate prints into this look so the blues and whites came together beautifully as to not distract the eye too much.
To add a little unexpected pop to my first look I wore my favorite red lip and a coral earring. This provides some contrast and interest with out disturbing the cool hues of blue. In my second look I pulled in more colors from my purse. With my shorts and earrings bringing out the teals and turquoise in my wallet and bag, it kept the electric feel of this look.
Using your purse and wallet to bring more interest to your style is so much fun! Go to mywalit.com and get a fun colorful purse to add to your wardrobe. Enjoy!
The Shelby Rose Collection began with a mom of two looking at her makeup pouch and wishing it was something that she loved. Shelby loves dance and over 26 years she has led, choreographed and performed countless times with the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets dance team. Even today as an elementary school teacher in Houston, Texas Shelby hosts a dance club for the students that she teaches physical education to.
Only close friends and family knew of another talent that Shelby would soon explore again. Shelby’s grandmother, Rose Marion Pullum was born in 1905 and gave Shelby the first sewing machine she ever owned. Rose taught her how to sew and creating and crafting has been apart of Shelby’s life ever since. At a friends request, Shelby sewed a few throw pillows and it was then that she realized that if she made her own makeup pouch, should would love it much more the the ones she currently owned. Shelby dusted off her sewing machine and explored her creativity in new ways.
Shelby went out and got fabrics that she loved for the pouches that she planned to make. While shopping for fabric she realized that she didn’t love her pouches because the INSIDE was boring! She resolved to fix that problem by using playful sophisticated prints on the outside and eclectic linings on the inside. It was then, that The Shelby Rose Collection was born.
Her handmade pouches come in 3 different sizes and are customizable. They can be used as a pouch as well as a clutch when you’re going out. You can check out The Shelby Rose Collection on:
