  1. People who know me, know that I’m a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal. I have an extensive collection of pieces that are easy to wear and not considered statement pieces, I leave Coach Purses my bags to do most of the attention-catching. But after seeing the droves of people at New York Longchamp Bags Fashion Week, I always reconsider some fun pieces that I want to add to my michael kors outlet wardrobe.Even if you add a stand-out piece, you want to make sure it is something that still fits your personal aesthetic. For me, a bomber jacket works with my typical outfits, and right when I laid eyes Michael Kors Outlet Online upon the Gucci Silk-Chiffon and Metallic Bomber Jacket, I was hooked. The jacket features plenty of black, which Michael Kors Purses is easy to wear, but I’m drawn to the metallic jacquard. Look closely and you’ll see the sleeves Coach Outlet Store are silk chiffon, which really makes this jacket quite the glamorous piece. As for the bag I’d Longchamp Bag like to pair with it, I still love a variety of colors paired together, and I love the Coach Outlet Coach Mini Borough in a light chambray hue. The color will contrast well with the jacket, and the Coach Outlet Store Online shade of blue is soft and stunning. These pieces could be called high/low, with the jacket costing michael kors outlet $3,700 via Net-A-Porter and the bag running $378 via Coach.
    Typically, I would not expect Coach to michael kors outlet release a funky and edgy design. But alas, Coach realized that the masses are into the deep and Coach Outlet Online dark skulls and crossbones. Really though, it is not deep and dark, it is just edgy and totally michael kors outlet online hip now. The best part is the Coach Skull Charm sports silver and black leather with metallic trim
