I was beyond excited when I found out I had won the Etienne Aigner giveaway that I entered at the In Style event earlier last month. For one, because, as I exclaimed to the girls, I never win these things, and two, because the bag I won I actually loved! How often does that happen in a giveaway! I’m already a huge fan of the brand’s older look; I wore my vintage Etienne Aigner equestrian boots till the soles had to be replaced. Now, the brand has a new, fresher look, and I love what they’re doing with the handbag line. A statement bag like this is the type of accessory you can plan an entire outfit around, and I paired them with another new goodie of the season. Courtesy of DSW, I got to pick a free pair of shoes, and I found these amazing over the knee Madden Girl boots that I’m obsessed with. I have a feeling they will eventually be taking a trip to save their own soles. I love to mix things that don’t belong, like supposed faux pas silver and gold, and black and navy, so I paired my new metallic silver cross body bag with some chunky gold jewelry. What’s better then a little silver and gold for the holiday season?
