When it comes to picking a daily bag, often the debate comes down to a HUGE carryall tote bursting at the seams or an itty-bitty cross-body packed with just the essentials. If you happen to fall in the latter camp, chances are there’s a style you’ve been overlooking. Maybe you weren’t exactly ready when it reappeared on the Pre-Fall scene, but in the midst of summer, what could be more freeing and appealing? Slung low at the waist, giving your achy shoulders and arms a break, the fanny pack is back —and very much to the rescue!! It’s done a lot of growing up since the ’90s, too. These days you don’t need to limit yourself to polyester or a cheap neons; the modern belt bag has been transformed into a fab styled up must-have ready to go anywhere. Sure, it’s frequently seen on the waists of festivalgoers and goofy tourists, but it’s attracting its share of stylish admirers. I am a firm believer. “It’s a fashion statement with convenience,” It’s the ultimate effortless chic piece. “For the office to a vacation, it’s for all occasions.”
This has to be one of my all time favorite coffee table books!!! The cover and the site make such a statement – talk about sexy! This is the first book to focus on the Fendi Baguette. Launched in 1997, the so-called Fendi Baguette instantly became one of the most popular and most important accessories of the decade, earning Fendi the Fashion Group International award for accessories in 2000 and creating an enduring style icon that women the world over coveted and collected with passion. This gorgeously illustrated book celebrates the Baguette—a story of craftsmanship, artisanship, connoisseurship, and design.A deceptively small, simple handbag to be carried under the arm like the French loaf from which it takes its name, the Fendi Baguette has been produced in more than 700 models. Some are simple and understated, while others feature unique or deluxe materials, such as embroidery, sequins, beading, leather, fur, or crocodile skin. Some are embellished with precious stones, while others are wild, limited-edition works of art designed by artists such as Damien Hirst, Richard Prince, and Jeff Koons, making the Fendi Baguette a fashion must-have discreetly tucked under the arms of the most iconic women of our times. #getit #getitatkerry #kerrymwh #fendi #fendibauette #sexy #coffetable #book #fasion #style #home #statement

Whether you want to create a fashion statement or add that little extra boom to a plain jane outfit, a belt alone will help you with that – more than you KNOW! Sometimes, you don’t need anything else (jewelry, scarves, etc.) because a belt adds that well-put finishing touch to your outfit!
Belt Styling Tips:
1. Waist belts versus hip belts: Belts draw attention to whatever part of the body they lie across.Waist belts are generally considered the most flattering because they emphasize the smallest part of your body and make you look slimmer, but hip belts can do the same thing, provided they are covered a little on both sides. This means that if you are wearing a pair of lower-rise jeans with a belt you want to show off, you would just tuck in the front of your shirt so that the back and sides of the belt are covered. Alternately, you could tuck your top in all around and then throw on a jacket that covered below the belt and wear it open so only the middle front section was visible.
2. Knotting the end of a long belt: This is great for casual outfits — just make sure your belt is long enough and soft enough that it lies properly and doesn’t stick out at an odd angle or dig into you awkwardly.
3. Matching your belt to your shoes: There’s nothing wrong with matching your belt to your shoes, but you certainly don’t have to. Matching will make you look polished and pulled together, but it’s also a very conservative look. Mismatching is better if you’re going for something more casual and fun.
So you should all know how much I enjoy my coffee and a good coffee shop! I always find an excuse to sit down and get work done in a coffee shop. I even have a greater excuse now with my new computer and blog site. Find a little spot , get some coffee and write ! Write what you want or need , write your goals , write what your feeling – just write and see how much it clears your mind 🙂 Happy Hump day from me !!!!!

Don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that it’s already August!!! This month, some of you may be heading back to school and others back to work after a little vacation. But don’t fret! Temperatures are still on the rise and so is summer fashion. Keep those off-the-shoulder blouses and espadrille sandals right where they are because you’ll need them with the summer heat that we’ve been having lately. To help keep you cool, calm and totally chic, I’ve put together a bunch of looks to help you end summer on a VERY high note. See what I’m currently obsessed with and how you can incorporate these styles into your own wardrobe…
