Meet Daria_for day & play


i’d like to introduce you to my new best friend. her name is daria (not to be mistaken with this daria) and she’s the perfect purse for life on-the-go. i’m not usually one to switch out my purse to match my outfit, but i recently noticed that for how much black i’ve added to my wardrobe, i didn’t have a complimentary handbag. enter hobo  -a brand i’ve loved for over a decade since being gifted my first clutch wallet right out of college.

with the holidays in full swing and your free time divided between attending holiday parites or shopping for them, the last thing you want to do is worrying about holding a clutch or handbag while juggling plates of christmas cookies or bags from bloomingdales or heaven forbid, your class of champagne (shudder). that’s why a crossbody bag is your best friend this time of year (and most every other time of year, too). what i love about this one particularly is that not only is it goldilocks size (not too big, not too small), it also comes in a rainbow of colors and can be converted from a purse to a wristlet in one easy step. personally, i love the chain strap detail; worn across the body, it almost acts as another layer of jewelry!

here’s how i styled it recently for day and play:

    First off… you’re looking gorgeous. I love it each time you wear that red lipstick… it should be named Shawna. It is simply ‘your’ color – what a great find!!
    Next… the cross purse is sensational (you selected a great one).
    Another next… the stunning pink blouse with your polka-dot skirt is so classy. The zest of the blouse pairs perfectly, perfectly, perfectly with the statement of the skirt.
    Last… you’re looking radiant. Your inner beauty and outer beauty make a great seasonal statement to just enjoy life.
