Purse: Made by Me, Guyanesesista
Bracelet: Made by me.
Now although it's super obvious I'm not American I was still feelin' the American spirit for America's birthday last week. See I migrated to the U.S. when I was 18 and have spent my entire adult life here. So at the moment America is my home though I'm not sure if I'll be here for the rest of my life. In light of my patriotism I decided to whip something together and decided on two July 4th inspired red, white & blue purses; it was supposed to be one but why not two, right? I made a fold over clutch with a magnetic snap and zipper clutch both with wristlet straps. I decided to do a little shoot to show them off before I went out to watch Man of Steel. I personally think they look stunning. What say you?

I put together this simple ensemble for both purses. A white tank, dark blue skinny jeans, and light brown wedges topped off with some gold accessories seemed like the way to go. I had red pumps in mind but there was no way I was walking around in those things.

I was going to add stars to them but apart from the fact that it might have ruined the design, the styling options would have been limited. I want to be able to wear these purses any time of year. I've also been playing in makeup lately and I'm loving Make Up Forever's HD 175 foundation and 174 powder. Along with that I did a neutral eye, some blush from the dollar tree(yes, I said dollar tree *_*) and Milani pink lip gloss to make my lips pop. The hair is a side swept twist out I achieved from moisturizing with The Pomade Shop's LinoMoist Conditioning Pomade(review coming soon) and sealing with coconut oil.

The flash washed out the colour on the purse
but my lips are poppin'.
So how did you spend your 4th of July weekend? Which purse do you like best; the zipper one or the folder over one?
