Friday Five Under $50

I'm a little obsessed with this dark floral kimono style blouse. Add in that it's only $30 and some sizes are already going out of stock, if it weren't for Nordstrom Rack's $100 free shipping minimum I'm quite certain I'd have already ordered it.

I'm curious how you feel about the interchangeable handbag straps. I spotted them at Kate Spade last year as a part of their push for a more customizable Byrdie bag, but now they are cropping up everywhere, and for less than $20, is it a trend you'd try? I think this metallic silver strap would be equally as nice on a black bag, particularly as we move into the colder months when my black bags are in heavy rotation.

  1. To be honest, I'm not sure how I feel about interchangeable strap bags - I got one right when the trend started, but didn't buy it because of the interchangeable straps. In the end, I found that I really only liked one of the straps of the three the bag came with and, more importantly, changing the straps was way less easy than it should have been. After that, I haven't felt compelled to seek out any similar bags, but I admit that silver strap is seriously gorgeous. And I love the passport holder too, so cute!

  2. And now I think I'm obsessed with that top....

  3. Loving all of these! That top is so pretty! And I love the idea of changeable straps! Such a cool way to accessorize

  4. I love the shoes but I know if I got them I would not wear them...

  5. What a great idea to change out the straps on your purse...I could do that with the ones I already have even!!
    Have a great weekend, Lydia!

  6. Those Gucci-esque shoes are adorable!

  7. Oh that is a pretty bag strap! :) I've been thinking about getting one of those Rebecca Minkoff guitar straps for a while, they are a nice idea. But in saying that I've never swapped out any of the straps I have now even though the Rebecca Minkoff ones are completely interchangeable.

    That wrap top is lovely too, I can see why it's selling out! :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend :)
