Style Files Vol 4 | Alesya Dinner and Drinks Clutch + Embroidered Dress + Shopbop Spring Event

Mar 1, 2016

Today it is such a treat to feature a bag from a local Charleston designer, Alesya.  I have long been a fan of her handbags.  What I love most about them is their functionality.  This has quickly become my favorite clutch.  I find myself carrying it almost every time I go out.  I also love her “work satchel” that doubles as a laptop case as well. You can check out Alesya’s other designs here which include a gorgeous wallet and business card holders.

Outfit Details:

Love Sam Dress | Alesya Clutch c/o | Twine and Twig Bracelets | Julie Vos Ring | Rebecca Minkoff Sandals

I really like the fold over style of the purse.  It can actually hold more than you think.  I can easily fit my wallet, keys, cell phone, and lipsticks inside. 

 I use the zippered portion for my phone.  I am always digging for my phone in other purses and I love having a designated spot for it!

You know I love anything and everything embroidered so this dress was a no brainer. 

The nice part is it comes fully lined with a cotton slip, so it is not see through.

It runs TTS I am wearing a small. 

I bought these shoes last summer and I am so glad to see they are back in stock again.   They are not crazy expensive and they are surprisingly comfortable. 

They are available in gold, silver and black.

Back to the dinner and drinks clutch.  

A few details about it I love:

It has an exterior zip pocket for my phone

It has an interior slot for business cards

It comes in 4 gorgeous colors.  I am carrying the saddle but it also comes in vermillion, navy and black.

It is made out of the softest leather.

Also don’t miss out Shopbop’s new Spring Event just started!  You can save on my dress and sandals which are both from Shopbop!

I rounded up a few other embroidered looks I am loving as well (many from Shopbop so you can save).  I included a few options for the little girls as well. Scroll through to see them all!
