Longchamp Limited Edition "Tree of Life" Le Pliage Tote

I was cleaning out my closet a few days ago, and found this perfect tote for springtime. Released in 2011, this Longchamp Le Pliage Large Tote in the limited run of "Tree of Life" is just itching to be used in this nice bout of weather we're having!

Like most Le Pliage totes, this piece is made from nylon with leather trimming. It's the ideal bag to not worry about getting something on it as you can scrub any imperfection off with water and a washcloth. The birds are a particular favorite of mine. They're very colorful without taking away from the beauty of the tree itself.

This is one of my favorite bags because it can easily fit my 15 inch laptop, iPad, journals, books, wallet, sunglasses and other accouterments. It's the best during a rainy day since the nylon responds well to the water. While it's certainly nowhere near the caliber of a typical Celine or Saint Laurent bag, the Longchamp Le Pliage is a great piece to have in your wardrobe due to its versatility and ease of cleaning.

(Yves) Saint Laurent Arty Ring

The past week was spent at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. Despite lots of walking and producing, I had some time to spend on the strip, and I grabbed something special from CityCenter's Yves Saint Laurent store. Yes, it does still say YSL on the store, and nearly everything in there is on sale! If you're anywhere near Vegas, head to the YSL store there for some good deals before all the new Saint Laurent Paris merchandise is stocked. They do have the new Cabas ChYc bags there as well as the old ones.

But back to the subject...after visiting Louis Vuitton, I moved over to Yves Saint Laurent and spotted the beautiful Arty rings and bracelets. Always an appreciator of the trend, I decided to try on as many as possible! (Insert sly smile here.) The colors available were incredibly beautiful and vivid. From turquoise blues to gold-filled corals, deep woody browns, blacks and greens, the Artys dazzled me. Keeping true to myself, I found the perfect subdued gold Arty ring. I do admit to being extremely obsessed with neutrals, so this ring completely fit in my accessories collection.
