Hooray! It’s National Handbag Day!

Hooray!  It’s National Handbag Day!  As of late just about everything has “a day” and October 10 is the day for all handbag lovers to celebrate, shop and show off their love of handbags!

Handbag, purse, tote, whatever you call this must have accessory is for many (like me) a necessity.  Handbags can transform and liven up any outfit.  Running errands or have plans to hit the gym later, so you opt to dress down in workout gear for the day?   Grab a structured tote or satchel and you will instantly feel a bit more “uptown”.

I love a great bag!  I like to carry and collect bags, a range of colors and styles is important!  For me a collection of handbags is slightly more awesome than a great shoe collection!  And I have a pretty decent shoe collection ;-)!

Handbags are so versatile they can be tiny or extra-large, they are available in just about any material or fabric we can think of and let’s not forget colors!  And lets not forget– they are functional, they carry all of our important and sometimes not so important STUFF!

The Chickwares team has decided to celebrate this day by sharing our bag “du jour” over on Instagram as well as some images of our favorite bags here on the blog!


Bags we love (just a few)!  It’s National Handbag Day!


Cheers to a day celebrating our love of handbags!  Happy National Handbag Day!  Thank  you for reading and sharing our blog!  Follow us here and on Instagram!

Don’t forget!  Visit our online boutique, in honor of National Handbag Day ANY bag is an extra 15% off all day with code: baglove!

Get Ready! Fall Wardrobe Staples!

Happy Happy Monday people!

I definitely am so inspired by the pending change of seasons that I feel like I’ve spent a little extra time planning Fall outfits to put together.  I love Fall dressing, sweater weather is my favorite!  It’s still summer AND I’m in Atlanta so it’s still pretty hot here  to even think about wearing some of the warmer sweaters and sweatshirts I have my eye on.  Mornings are getting a little cooler, but by mid-morning it’s still very hot here…and humid!  For the next couple of weeks I guess I’ll have to be content simply planning and trying out as many different looks as I can!  If you didn’t, take a look at a quick post I did on Fall trends a few weeks back to help jump-start your own wardrobe plan!

Most of these pieces you can begin to incorporate into your wardrobe now, for example pair the blazer with a lightweight cami, and wear after 5, or to the office (always cold), wear booties with shorts and casual dresses, etc.


Boyfriend Blazer, Express


Express Bell Bottom
Bell Flare Jeans, Express; I just purchased these, haven’t received yet, but love the retro look!
top shop sweater
Mock Neck Sweater, Top Shop; slightly oversized, perfect with distressed jeggings or leggings
steve madden rumble booties_129
Steve Madden Rumble Bootie, Nordstrom; to be worn with oversized Top Shop sweater and leggings 🙂
Sanctuary Camo
Sanctuary Camo Pants, Macy’s; to know me is to know I love camo! I have no idea why!! Swap tee for cami and top this look with a black blazer!
floral pant
Floral pant, leather jacket and booties! I wish I could tell you exactly where this look came from! If anyone knows please tell me! Love it!


See anything you like or are wearing now?   What do you think about these looks?  We’re excited for Fall, drop us a note and let us know what you think!  As always, thanks for sharing with us!  Please follow our blog and check us out on Instagram and Facebook!

Monday Must Have!  Baublebar Lariat Choker

Hi There!

After a “relaxing” weekend at the beach with my two little nuggets I’m back today with a little shopping PSA!  On my  Monday Must Have list is this fun piece by Baublebar!  The Lariat Choker is a chic alternative to the typical choker. Long fabric strands wrap around your neck and are accented with gold tassels. Metal closure.

Chokers were all the rage this summer and the trend doesn’t appear to be losing steam for Fall. There are tons of choker styles we fashionable chicks must have–don’t worry I’ll tell you all about ’em, another post for another day! 

Baublebar calls this one an essential and I must agree!  So cute ladies, wear this on casual work Friday to chic up work wear or date night out!  Looks FABULOUS  with a t-shirt or button up!

Baublebar; Lariat choker, $36 

What do you think ladies?  Yay or Nay?   Have this style?  Show us how you wear it, would love to hear from you!
