Pare Down for Party Season

With all of the baggage we carry in our daily lives, isn't it fun to go minimalist (yet sparkling) on the weekends?

Every woman should have a small bag that packs the essentials - phone, keys, lipgloss, and ID. Dinner dates, girls night out, movie night - think of the times you'll carry such a bag.

Wristlets and clutches start at $28. The above Caroline wristlet features a vintage glass button, $39.

Scarf City USA

Because I'm a scarf junkie myself, we have many terrific scarves for sale in our shop these days. I'm always looking for new ways to wear scarves from my collection, and my current favorite is the easy braided method demonstrated in the above video.

Our scarves start at $18.

Sidebar: You can pretty much figure out how to do anything at all on YouTube! My husband recently learned how to tune up his drum kit, and I find myself watching makeup and craft tutorials nearly every day.
