POVERTY FLATS by rian Floral Print Tote – Under $100

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

Here’s a fun floral print tote in fall-friendly colors that are even more eye-catching in person.

I also like the trendy tassel, which happens to be detachable if you ever want to take it off.

The glass beading. The iridescence. The cool colors. The British tweed. It’s all so eye-catching – and fun!

The Boden Embellished Slippers are $148 in British Tweed, Navy Satin (shown below) or Elderberry Satin.

France Luxe Hair Clips & Barrettes

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

A few years ago, I was delighted to receive a tip from my sister-in-law, Elizabeth, about France Luxe barrettes. Elizabeth almost always has her hair neatly pulled back, but I didn’t realize that she had been loyal to this one beloved brand for many years.

At the time, I was almost always wearing my hair twisted up in one of my daughter’s pony tail holders – a serviceable – but uninspired – look.

Here’s a lovely alternative:

France Luxe Rectangular Barrette in Alba

Elizabeth is partial to the France Luxe Rectangular Barrette, which is $18 in several colors. I bought the Alba finish shown in the picture above, and I love how it looks against blonde hair. It stays in place, holds all of my (admittedly fine) hair & is very well made.

Since then, I’ve also discovered France Luxe Jaw Clips, which are perfect for putting all of your hair up in a quick – but neat – twist. This Belle by France Luxe Jaw Clip is $16 in several different colors.

My favorite jaw clips are a little pricier: the floral Luxe Couture Jaw Clips shown below in dark purple and blue ($40) and the more ornate France Luxe Elysee Jaw Clip shown below in Alba ($58).

As you can see, I’ve collected enough clips to keep them handy around the house and in my bags.

My favorite finish may be the iridescent blue South Sea Barrette ($18) shown in the middle above – today I discovered that it’s also available in jaw clips and in several other styles!
