Clutches are usually designed with elegant evenings in mind, but with summer soirees fast approaching, you might be in need of some chic daytime options. I rounded up a few casual clutches so you don’t have to carry that sequined, satin satchel to your Memorial Day BBQ!
For a long time the only acceptable place for a hole in your outfit was the knee of your jeans but the runways recently have been full of cute “cuts.” Just in time for warm weather, these peek-a-boo pieces work on any age and body type–plus I love how they draw attention to often neglected body parts! Elbows deserve attention too, right?
Forgive me for the title, but it’s the best way to describe these fun items I found while browsing the net. Just when you think you’ve seen everything, I proudly bring you: pencil & paper socks, rose clutch, shark tea infuser and MacBook business card holder (the “screen” is a mirror!). I love the idea of matching the perfect gift with the perfect person… I hope there’s a shark week fan out there with a birthday coming up. =)

Bikini season is just about here! So for this week’s win-it, I wanted to share one of my favorite tools to help you get in ship shape for the summer.
Slimware plates have been a staple in my kitchen ever since I featured them on TODAY. An easy way to stay on track and eat healthy, they have portion control “disguised in the design” so you have a reminder to not overeat. Each set includes four (4) dishwasher-safe plates and each winner will receive 2 sets of whichever pretty pattern they desire (8 plates total).
All you have to do to win is follow me on Twitter and Retweet the contest mention. Winners will be announced this Friday (5/21) at 5:00pm EST.
Stars have a lot of freedom to play with their style — but sometimes keeping it sleek and sophisticated is the way to go. Kate Beckinsale and Cate Blanchett both looked amazing at The Cannes Film Festival last week in slim silhouettes that highlighted their figures. These ladies prove that an understated style that is timeless and elegant can still pack a punch.
First Fergie sparkled in the shoes, then Katy Perry glowed in the gown — Hollywood’s latest trend is getting all lit up! And the good news is that if you aren’t ready to invest in Jimmy Choo’s coveted pair for $2,495, you’ll still be able to sparkle. CuteCircuit, the designers (err..electricians) behind Katy’s creation, are launching a line of LED dresses starting at $135. Although I still say confidence is the best way to get attention when you enter a room, this is an interesting option too!
Alright ladies, I’m just the messenger here so don’t shoot me… but I would love to hear your thoughts on the so-called “belt bags” that are popping up in stores. Remember, not so long ago women vehemently denounced Ugg boots and swore leggings “weren’t pants,” but slowly those items made their way back into our hearts and closets. Comfortable, practical and with a slightly improved name, would you dare to wear the modern cousin of the fanny pack?
Following yesterday’s no-makeup segment on TODAY with Kathie Lee and Hoda, my minute buzz this morning was all about how to stay safe (and of course stay stylish) if you head out into the sun this weekend. Check out the clip above for some fun finds and find all of the information about the products I mentioned here.
What’s cuter than little Levi McConaughey? Levi McConaughey in a fedora of course! Yes, that’s right–for today’s Bobbie.com post, I bring you celebrity children in hats! I know it may seem a little silly, but don’t tell me you didn’t smile when you looked at Ellen Pompeo’s daughter Stella (bottom right) in those sunglasses and knit cap…
*Top Row: Vivienne Jolie Pitt, Levi McConaughey, Kingston Rossdale & Benjamin Brady (Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen’s son). Bottom Row: Mercy (Madonna’s daughter), Sunny Sandler, Leni Klum and Stella Ivery.
This time of year costume jewelry can sometimes feel a little heavy, which is why I fell in love with Molly M Designs‘ chic lasercut pieces. For spring 2010, it’s refreshing to see styles that blend the simplicity of natural materials with modern technology, plus the elegant earrings and pretty pendants pair perfectly with everything from casual blouses to little black dresses. All you have to do to win one of 3 sets is follow me on Twitter and retweet the contest mention. The winners will be announced tomorrow, May 14 at 5:00 PM EST.
Not just for jackets anymore, Hollywood has adopted the heavy classic for the hot months ahead. Stylish celebs from J. Lo and Alicia Keys to Beyonce and Jessica Alba have been spotted sporting the supple fabric in new ways. What do you think? Is leather best left studded and/or in jacket form or are these ladies looking luxe?
If you read my BUZZ column this week in In Touch magazine, you saw celebs donning enormous earrings, but that’s not the only way to go big! Check out the ladies above playing with proportion. From Kelis’ crazy chain to Rachel’s trousers, exaggerated elements are an easy way to add spice to an ensemble (and also happen to be a slimming trick!) So this summer toss the teeny tanks and itty bitty bracelets back into the closet and make a splash like a star with a huge style statement.
