KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors. As I clicked around and noticed all of the bright florals, modern neutrals, and boho-chic tribal prints; I found myself wondering where the vision behind this brand comes from. Owner Melis…

Style Trend Spring / Summer 2014: Perforated Leather


One of the top spring/ summer 2014 style trends for women is perforated leather. Think of it as the new eyelet. It was only a matter of time really. Women's fashion has taken a strong, modern turn in recent years. Even the florals have become sleeker and edgy. While feminine trends like chiffon, lace, and pastels are still in for spring (as always), when it comes to eyelet and perforated fabrics, it's all about sleek leather and geometric shaped as opposed to the traditional boho-chic eyelet.

Designer brands like COACH, Tory Burch, Juicy Couture, and Michael Kors all have lots of new handbags in perforated leather for spring/ summer 2014. More affordable accessory brands like JustFab also have several perforated leather items out this season. Keep reading for my picks under $100.

While the trend is mostly seen on expensive designer leather pieces, there are still plenty of affordable perforated faux leather items available.

The perforated leather trend can go dressy or casual and for daytime or evening. For work, pair a perforated leather top with sleek trousers and a colorful satchel. For an evening out, you could swap out the trousers for a black mini skirt and black pointy-toe ankle-cuff pumps and swap out the satchel for a sleek envelope clutch.

The second look above is a casual boho-chic way to wear perforated leather. Pair laser-cut booties with skinny jeans and a tribal-print tank. Accessorize with some fringed earrings and a brown crossbody.
