Red Hot Tomato


MBMJ Ozzie square bag, H&M blazer, dress and cuff, Zara wedges, FineFinds necklace, YSL arty ring,

Joining the bag family is my newly purchased Marc by Marc Jacobs Ozzie Square Smith Flap Satchel in Tomato. What a mouthful! I cannot express how much I adore this structured (yet feminine) crossbody bag that's functional for both work and play. Made of textured leather, this bag resembles ostrich without the astronomical price tag and it's roomy with a ton of compartments to help me stay organized (As Lisa puts it, it's an OCD person's dream!). The bold tomato red with a hint of coral is just the pop of color I'm looking for this fall/winter, and you can bet I'll be wearing it all though spring/summer too.

To let the ozzie bag get the spotlight, I wore it against nothing but nude tones with small gold accents. The fringe dress, a summer favourite, was worn with my beloved cream blazer (also seen in outfits here and here). How adorable is the birdcage necklace from FineFinds? The best part of boutique shopping is stumbling on unique pieces like this. Where else would you find a necklace where the door actually opens to a birdie swinging on a triangle? Certainly not at H&M!

I love your entire outfit and the details in particular. Hearts on sheer black tights, the bright tomato hue of the Ozzie bag, the necklace and ring--perfection! I smiled when I saw the H&M cuff too. Here's to lunchtime purchases. ;-)

What a lovely outfit Carolina! The bag is perfect.. the colour and shape. It definitely brightens up this dreary weather.

Gorgeous as usual and such pretty photos. I love the traditional structure of the bag but modernized with a long strap. Also loved it with the nudes :) xx

Love this outfit! Who knew such fab pieces could all be found at H&M? I haven't had any luck there in a while...this shows me I must keep trying! Will you be lining up for Lanvin x H&M?

The bag, btw, is amaaazing. I would never have guessed that such a sophisticated looking bag was by M by MJ. The red ostrich embossed leather is just beyond! The perfect pop of colour. Was that a Holt's buy during the Early Christmas event?

nicole said...

Carolina, you look absolutely stunning! Autumn chic and feminine pretty, all in one. LOVE the bag, of course, it's a gorgeous colour. I can't tell if the dress is sequined or fringe, but I love it! Great tights and shoes as well ;) Take care and I'll see you when I get back from my trip! We should do another girls' night xo

nicole said...

P.S. Love the new layout too!

Dexter said...

Your new bag is lovely, I also like the excellent shots about all the details!

Shop T.O. Live said...

A couple of things I love about this outfit. The YSL ring is gorgeous, and that birdcage necklace is totally precious.

I also loved the dress you wore for Halloween! If I could find that now, I would totally get it! The caged skirt is just amazing!

Daisy said...

Love the entire look. The heart nylons are my fave <3 <3

Carolina, how lovely you are :) The super pale lavender in your pieces contrast so nicely with your hair colour. And that bag is GORGEOUS! I think I'm going to get the wallet version of it! Such a pretty colour and you're right, it looks so expensive. What an adorable necklace too-- I need to make a visit to Fine Finds!
