It’s dress season! I wore this wrap dress to a daytime tea event last weekend, and it worked out perfectly! Time got away from me, so I needed to find a dress pronto; this one arrived within 48 hours of me ordering it! Plus, it was under $50. Love that!

While I dressed it up for the event with slingback heels, this affordable summer dress can also be worn with sandals or espadrilles for a casual look in the warm summer months. I’m looking forward to styling it in different ways this season!

How cute is this tote bag? I am very sad that Mansur Gavriel only made it for two seasons. It is a handy tote bag which is strong and can carry a lot inside! I had to carry teacups to the event I attended, so this tote was perfect because I could fit three tea settings inside as well as my wallet, keys, and phone. While this tote isn’t for sale any longer, I did link to one that is equally practical and very cute. Hope you love it if you are in the market for a smaller, workhorse tote.

Wrap dresses can be a pain on windy days, so I always wear biker shorts and a tank top underneath my wrap dress. The day I wore this dress, also happened to be very windy! I was quite thankful for my biker shorts, haha.

Have you ever had to purchase a dress last minute? This is a good one to keep in mind! There are a few additional fabric choices too if this green print isn’t your thing. I am thinking of picking up another one in a different fabric for the summer. This dress is so easy to dress up or down, I love a versatile piece; especially when it is under $50!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag review

mansur gavriel mini swing shoulder bag review small hobo bag

How cute is this new hobo bag from Mansur Gavriel?! I am in love! This cute, soft little bag is the Mini Swing shoulder bag, and it is just the right size.

The Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag is a soft, small hobo bag which features a pebble leather finish, and suede interior. The bag has “mini” in the name, but it really is the size a of typical “small” handbag.

What fits inside Mansur Gavriel mini Swing bag

The Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag fits my wallet, sunglasses, lipstick, iPhone, and keys. I can also place a mask on top, and then zip the bag up. It’s perfect if you only need to carry around your essentials. If you need more room, I recommend looking at the larger sized hobo bag from Mansur Gavriel, which is the Mansur Gavriel Swing shoulder bag. I am thinking of picking up the larger size in ivory. The leather is so soft, the light ivory color looks beautiful.

This is a casual, eveyday bag. The Mini Swing bag looks great with jeans, urban sweats, workout outfits, and spring sundresses, skirts, and shorts. This is the perfect casual, everyday bag for the upcoming year.

Please note, the interior of the Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag does not feature any pockets. It is one compartment. Since the bag is small, you don’t really need to worry about losing anything. I don’t miss having a pocket, unless I am stuffing multiple receipts into the bag. Then, I fold the receipts and try to put them at the bottom of the bag so they don’t get in the way when I reach for my keys or sunglasses.

Looking ahead to 2022, hobo bags are everything. While they won’t be the only IT bag style, the hobo will be one of the top three must-have handbag styles. Both structured and soft hobos will be hotter than hot, and this bag will be on fire! Love!

If you are looking for an IT bag to be your everyday bag now, and into the new year, this is the perfect bag! Which color are you eyeing?

Thanks for stopping by!

Mansur Gavriel mini Cloud wristlet review

mansur gavriel mini cloud wristlet review

Mansur Gavriel mini Cloud wristlet /

How cute is this miniature wristlet from Mansur Gavriel! The mini version of Mansur Gavriel’s cloud clutch is small in size, yet big on style. One of the many IT bag trends right now is the micro-mini bag. This version of the style also incorporates the IT bag style of the pouch clutch; giving you two IT styles in one. Love it!

Normally I shy away from really tiny bags. I like to be able to fit my wallet, glasses, and phone inside of my bag. I also like to have a little bit of extra room inside my bag just in case I need to carry extra items. That being said, this little bag intrigued me, so I decided to give it a try.

The Mansur Gavriel mini Cloud wristlet has dimensions which would lead you to believe an iPhone would fit inside, unfortunately, that is not the case. This little pouch fits a lipstick and keys; not much else. Even my mini travel wallet does not fit inside. I need to leave a credit card and cash loose inside the bag. This wristlet is definitely for evenings out, or occasions when you don’t need to carry anything. It is not a practical bag, by any means.

The mini Cloud wristlet by Mansur Gavriel can be used for special occasions, or times when you don’t need to carry very much with you. It is also a great companion to a larger bag. You can use the mini Cloud wristlet in conjunction with a work tote, and carry it out to lunch at the office so that you don’t have to lug your large work bag around with you. It can also be used for travel to secure small items inside a larger bag. This little pouch also makes a great make-up bag to place inside a work tote, or school bag.

If you are looking for a small bag which fits your phone, I recommend the mini Cloud clutch instead. Here is a size comparison:

Are you a little confused by the sizing? Yes, I was too at first. The small Cloud is actually the mini Cloud “CLUTCH” while this smaller pouch bag is actually categorized as a “WRISTLET” and not a clutch. They are both titled “mini Cloud” while they are two different sizes and bag types. If you are looking for a clutch, the mini Cloud clutch is your bag. It can be found with a strap. If you are looking for a tiny bag, the mini Cloud wristlet is your bag.

What do you think of the little Mansur Gavriel mini Cloud wristlet? Is this your type of bag? I plan to use mine in conjunction with a larger bag; mainly my work tote. I will occasionally use it as a small clutch, but since I am addicted to having my phone with me at all times, this may not happen very often. It’s a great pouch for make-up, and to keep things stylishly organized within a larger bag. I also plan to use it a lot for travel.
