Hello Philadelphia

Hello! I've been back in Philadelphia for the past few days and am already counting down until this semester ends and I can go back to Richmond. For one, I definitely already miss the beautiful weather in Richmond. Over spring break, I enjoyed sunny skies and warm temperatures but am now back to dreary, chilly weather in Philadelphia (with a prediction of snow on Saturday.) I took these photos earlier this week and slipped my faux fur jacket off really quick to take them. You might not be able to tell but I was actually freezing when I was taking these photos.

For this look, I pulled a vintage tulle top out of my wardrobe. I purchased this beauty at a thrift shop over break for about $6-$7 and I'm absolutely in love with it. I was a bit hesitant to purchase this top at first because I'm very cheap when it comes to thrifting but the light green color, tulle fabric and delicate lace embroidery swept me off my feet and convinced me to purchase it. And boy, am I glad that I did! I love the ethereal feeling that this top emits and look forward to incorporating it into more of my looks this season.

I slipped on a pair of black denim with the top. Then, I tied a green & black checked flannel around my waist to emphasize the color of the top and make the look slightly more weather appropriate. Black Jeffrey Campbells completed the look.

Thirty-One

Hello! Recently, Thirty One sent me their "Canvas Crew Carry-All" in pink to showcase on my blog. This bag retails for $55 here. I'm very impressed with this tote bag; I love the structured shape, pop of bright color and ability of the bag to hold a lot of stuff. This would be the perfect bag to carry books to class in or to use for day beach trips. 

Thirty One sells various accessories, jewelry and bags. Their preppy selection of classic pieces is perfect for this upcoming spring season. The combination of fun colors, playful prints and functional pieces is irresistible. Thirty One allows customers to easily personalize their purchases with monograms. Be sure to check Thirty One out to update your wardrobe this summer!

Hello! Recently, I stumbled across Jump From Paper while browsing online. Jump From Paper is an online retailer that sells quirky, cartoon-like bags. When I first saw a few of their product images and images from their look book, I thought that some type of photo editing or trick was being employed to make their bags look flat. But nope! Jump From Paper creates modern graphic bags that look like they were pulled right off the page of a cartoon. The bags appear totally flat and non-functional. However, they are the perfect bags to carry your laptop, phone, tablets, etc. around in. Prices range from around $30-$140 per bag.
 
I can't stop lusting after these statement-making bags from their past two collections. They are just so fun, quirky and carefree that I can't help but fall in love with them. Additionally, I've never seen anything like these 2-D inspired, playful bags before. The designers behind the line definitely took a risk in starting Jump From Paper but their creativity and innovation provides for a hip brand that instantly made waves in the fashion industry.
 
What do you guys think of Jump From Paper?
