Happy Hour: Sparkles Everywhere


Tasha Crystal Pond Clutch ($278)

I spotted this clutch on the blog Coco + Kelley, written by fellow Gonzaga Alum and style maven, Cass Lavalle.  It’s so shiny and chic.  I would carry it to cocktail parties, weddings and formal events and then, display it on my dresser the rest of the time.

Looking for a less expensive way to sparkle?  Tasha also makes a sparkly gold clutch for $78.  This foldover clutch with raffia and silver has a great mix of textures.  And this McQueen-reminiscent clutch from LuLu Townsend is just $39.

But my absolute favorite if this Kate Landry box clutch with a black clasp and a melange of large rhinestones. Very old Hollywood.  It’s $95.

Want metallic but no sparkle?  This gold envelope clutch from Chico’s is $35 (so much style for the price), and

this silver frame clutch is really sleek.


It’s been awhile since I’ve featured a champagne cocktail, but this drink from The Domestic Mixologist is perfect for drinks with the girls on a random Friday or a bridal/baby shower.  It combines blood orange bitters, a sugar cube and a sliver of orange peel for a citrusy libation that could easily sub-in for a mimosa at brunch.
