WIW: White leather handbag & trench

I've been so inspired by Rae lately and her use of her white handbag. I decided it was high time to pull out the beautiful white Danier leather handbag that I got as a Christmas gift. That was the starting point to today's outfit.

I'm wearing my black/white graphic print faux wrap dress and topped that with my cobalt/black cropped asymmetrical zip jacket. I've kept my legs bare looking but am wearing nude micro fishnet tights. I've popped on my blue suede booties which are very comfortable since I have a fair bit of walking to do at work today. I've scrunched the sleeves of my jacket to work with the bareness of my legs.

On top of everything when I head out the door, I've added a navy and white polka dot scarf and my new navy London Fog trench coat. I don't mind at all that the trench doesn't cover the hem of my dress - I like it slightly shorter and enjoy the dress peeking out from underneath. 

With all of this, is my white handbag. I'm in LOVE with this bag. End stop.

So what do you think? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Trench: London Fog
Blazer: Vince Camuto
Dress: Maggy London
Fishnets: Hue
Boots: Aerosoles
Handbag: Danier Leather
Scarf: Cleo

    Dress twin, you look smashing!  I love the cobalt blue with it, and I am taking notes as I love wrap dresses but have struggled a bit with toppers for them.

    the bag is luscious! Such a nice addition to your terrific collection.

    These are your colours for sure. What a great outfit. I love the white bag with the blue booties, and the graphic print dress is fab. What a killer look to start the week!

    Lovely Shannon. You look kinda cute in #3 and the bag looks delicious. I don't mind a bit of dress showing underneath my coats either, I find it interesting-looking. YLF.

    I just love the black and white with cobalt! And of course I'm going to love the dress bootie combo:). This is a beautiful look Shannon and the handbag (colour and shape) is very classic and elegant, it's lovely.

    Very nice! I love your purse.
  • Debora replied 6 years ago
    Everything about this is just stunning, Shannon. Your white handbag is gorgeous! I like to have a little hem peeking out, too.

    Another fab look. You look so striking in that color combination. Gorgeous, Shannon!
  • shevia replied 6 years ago
    You should be in love that bag. And that jacket. And that dress. And that trench...I think you get the idea!
  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago
    That trifecta of color strikes again!  Great shapes here, too!

    You're keeping your fashion fun quotient high, despite the lingering cold, which is a sign of the fashion equivalent of the Briitish "stiff upper lip."

    Looking terrific.

    Terrific, Shannon, and an optimistic nod to Spring, too. I LOVE this outfit, and the bag in particular. You look so fab! Thank you for the inspiration, I'm keeping this for future reference if you don't mind.

    Love it! I am so going to try and copy with my b/w striped dress sometime. The white handbag is awesome!!

    Love the new bag and you in cobalt! 

    Fun to pull out those frocks again, isn't it?

    (And thank you for thinking of me when you wear your new yellow blazer!)

    Love, love, love the black, white and cobalt combination! Such a fantastic print on that dress. And you make me think I really need a white handbag!
  • Liz A. replied 6 years ago
    I like your collar peeking out above the jacket.  Makes it interesting.
  • Karie replied 6 years ago
    This is my favorite outfit of yours. I love the blue booties, white bag, dress, trench, everything!
  • Beth replied 6 years ago
    Oh, heck yes! I love the mix of graphic, bright blue and the white bag. You nailed it! Go forth and be fab. :)

    Work? Does it ever! Love how you've taken the wrap dress and layered it, super cobalt-white-black perfection! Love the low bootie + dress look.

    Oh my ladies - thank you so much for your lovely comments. I'm loving bright colours mixed with black and white. Do you think my new bright yellow blazer would work over this dress as well - or would it be too "bumble bee"?
