The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon

It’s always fun to find local shops which offer both fashionable and local products. When I learned about The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon, I was thrilled to learn we had a fabulous shop right here in the Bay Area which offers exactly that!

The Perfect Provenance offers fabulous and fashionable men’s and women’s clothing. They carry amazing brands which are on trend, and also offer quality as well as good fit. In addition to clothing, The Perfect Provenance stocks cult favorite accessories such as Perrin, Vanessa Bruno, and Elena Ghisellini.

I was also amazed to see jewelry from local designers, fabulous shoes, and so many perfect pieces for the home. They stock everything from home décor to books. In addition, they also have all-time children’s favorites such as “Madeline” and “Babar.”

I was also thrilled to find amazing gifts which are not only great for the holiday season, but all year long. They have small batch olive oil and vinegar made in Italy; which as someone with Italian ancestry, I can attest is absolutely authentic and fabulous- a must-buy when you stop in the shop or place an order online!

Products with a cause are always something I fall in love with, these adorable tee’s are exactly that! Sales from the tee’s, pouches and entire “Smile Collection” directly benefit Operation Smile. Love that! There is much more information on their website here.

One thing I find amazing about The Perfect Provenance is that their entire stock is also online. If you are not local to the Tiburon area, or you aren’t ready to venture out of quarantine just yet, you can shop it all online at ThePerfectProvenance.com. Love that!

As far as safety is concerned, everyone inside The Perfect Provenance is wearing a mask; and as a customer, you will too. It’s very clean and safe; and fun! You will love browsing and shopping in-store, just as I did. It is full-scale retail therapy. Love!

I enjoyed trying on clothing in the dressing rooms. It was safe and fun to see which items from the store I wanted to leave with. I ended up snapping up a top, sweater, dress, earrings, olive oil and vinegar (of course), and a candle. I love getting a few things for myself as well as getting a jump start on my holiday gift shopping! It is a one-stop-shop!

Be sure to check out The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon, and also bookmark the website for holiday shopping-and more!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jord Haifa cross body clutch review

jord haifa handbag review

How cute is this convertible cork clutch! You may recognize it from my holiday handbag capsule, which I posted last week. I always love owning bags which have more than one purpose in life. The Jord Haifa has exactly that. It is a dressy clutch and it is also a dressy cross body bag. Or, if you are feeling a little disco, you can wear it on your shoulder and rock the long strap shoulder strap look which was hotter than hot in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s. This is great news because it means the Jord Haifa can be worn three ways! Love that!

One of the big movements in the fashion industry right now is sustainability. Fashion designers and brands are working hard to make their products more sustainable and environmentally friendly. What I love about Jord’s handbags is that they are made from cork; making them inherently sustainable and vegan. It feels good to wear something I know is sustainable, and not damaging to the environment.

What fits inside the Jord Haifa cross body bag

It’s the ideal size inside. In addition to a zipper pouch and credit card slots, I can fit my full-size wallet, lipstick, keys, and iPhone inside the Jord Haifa. This makes it very easy to wear since I don’t have to pair down my purse essentials when I leave the house. I can throw what I need inside, and I am ready to leave the house! Love that!

The Jord Haifa cross body bag also offers luxurious design details. I love the gold flecks on the black cork, and high quality hardware. In addition, the red, faux suede lining is soft and beautiful. I love how everything works together to create a bag which looks much, much more expensive than $149! I really would add numbers to that price! It’s an amazing value.

Attention to details

The details on the Jord Haifa are absolutely amazing, and high quality. The clasp has a lock on it which snaps into place, making the bag secure yet still easy to get into. The two little knobs push together and voila! the clasp opens, allowing you access to the interior of the bag. Thankfully it’s tricky enough to keep pick-pocking fingers out of the bag. Love!

There is a strong, gold chain strap which is detachable that comes with the Jord Haifa cross body clutch. It has easy-to-snap-on clasps which go underneath the exterior flap; so the loops are hidden. This is a really luxurious feature. The straps adds additional luxury to the bag which adds security when you are wearing it hands free. I love how it looks with the strap!

You can find the Jord Haifa cross body bag online at Jord.co.

Loving this bag! I hope you do too. It would make a great holiday bag, as well as gift for the handbag fan on your holiday list!

Thanks for stopping by!

Holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

My holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe is here! This holiday 2020 season, I am paring down my bag rotation since parties have been cancelled, and we will be home much more than in past holiday seasons.

For the holiday season, I need a workhorse, everyday bag. That bag is my Givenchy Antigona. It is a bag I have had in my wardrobe for years, and it’s strong construction, coupled with ideal interior capacity, makes it the perfect everyday bag of the season. If you are looking for an investment bag to enjoy for years, this is it!

Of course, it is always fun to mix things up! For casual occasions, when I don’t need a workhorse bag, this soft clutch is perfect. It holds coveted IT bag status, and it’s roomy enough to fit my sunglasses case, hand sanitizer, and few extra masks in addition to my wallet and phone. I also love that it’s red (flamma) inside! So fun!

Lastly, outdoor dining is beautiful during the holiday season as the streets are lined with lit up trees and seasonal decor. I am looking forward to wearing this sustainable and vegan, cork handbag on dressier occasions. It has golden flecks, and a detachable gold chain strap. It also happens to be red inside, love that! I also love the versatility of the detachable straps, it’s nice to have a bag which can be worn as a shoulder bag or clutch. Stay tuned for my upcoming review next week!
