I've probably received more complements on this clutch than any single item I own. It's the perfect size, shape and weight, and the shimmery tones make it so versatile; perfect for almost any outfit. It has become my official go-to night time bag.  There was no decision making involved on which clutch I would style with this equally lust-worthy Akiko dress on loan from Lipp Boutique. So. In. Love... I felt as if I was wearing a palette of water colors.  I am super excited to share some of that love today!  Lipp Boutique is giving away a JJ Winters clutch to one very lucky winner!

J. Crew Bridesmaid Dress Worn as Top, Skirt c/o Cigi Guz, Coach Clutch, Blinde Sunglasses, Bakelite Bracelets from summerbird, Steve Madden pumps

Dress worn as top: J. Crew (old), here's current version. Skirt: c/o Cigi Guz. Shoes: Steve Madden. Sunglasses: Blinde, but here's a less expensive pair. Clutch: Coach (old), here's one. Colored Bracelets: Bakelite thanks to summerbird.  Other Bracelets: Belonged to Grandmother and Grandmother-in-Law. Earrings: old, but here's a pair. Rings: Tiffany and custom by Diamonds Direct.

I love bright color!  Any color that is bright, happy and fun is perfect.  I was drooling like my Precious Peanut #1 at the frozen yogurt shop when I got my hands on this skirt by budding Charlotte designer Cigi Guz.  I love it all; the colors, the shape, the sexy yet poised delight this skirt so sweetly pronounced when she called my name from across the boutique.  "Yoo hooo! Whitleey! Ova heeere! Would so love for you to come on ova and jawn me."  I just love this lil' lady.  Don't you?  I paired the skirt over my best bridesmaid dress of all time.  We all have the best of intentions in picking a bridesmaid dress that can be worn again, but my Dawg takes the gold for choosing such a truly versatile dress.  Can't wait to show you the matching jacket to this gorgeous suit!

Thanks for being here!!!  Lots of these from my heart... xxxooo, Whitley
