Fierce Fashion from Tidestore: Glamorous Solid Color Bag Review


My personal style is undeniably feminine {with the occasional tomboy tendency}, catering to heels {3-inches and up everyday}; pastel colors; and a revolving door of skinny jeans in a variety of washes. Nevertheless, I have always been intrigued by the smoldering, dark mystique of Alexander McQueen’s collection of skull accessories; so, when Tidestore offered me the opportunity to select any item {priced at $25 and under} from their shop, my eyes landed on the Glamorous Solid Color Bag and never strayed. After {finally} making its way through customs, the bag landed in my hands, and I can officially say that it was well worth the wait. Not to mention {seriously} swoon-worthy, and my new BFF for this season’s holiday party scene!

THINGS I LOVE
The lightly-quilted, black-on-black chevron-design construction of the box clutch is the perfect feminine juxtaposition to the edginess of the skull detailing.
The finger knuckle duster clasp! Each of the four finger holds highlights a different motif – a large skull, an oversized black gemstone, a small skull, and a teeny tiny skull on a small bouquet of flowers. Together they create the perfect Tim Burton-esque edge.
The hematite-colored hardware paired with the black of the box clutch is the ultimate in glamour, and looks incredible coupled with party frocks; but it also looks amazing {and serves as a total conversation-starter} when worn with cropped denim, slouchy knits, and pointy-toed pumps for a more dressed-down look {P.S. I can attest to this, as I styled it this way on Friday when I met up with my BFF’s for brunch and shopping!}.

How would you style Tidestore’s Glamorous Solid Color Bag? If you were given $25 to spend at Tidestore, what would you buy?
