Daily Obsesh - Marc by Marc Jacobs 10th Anniversary Apple Studs

Happy Anniversary to Marc by Marc Jacobs!!!


The eponymous diffusion line is now a decade old (!) and it's been 10 years of total trend setting. From must-have handbags to bold baubles and trinkets, Marc by Marc Jacobs came on to the downtown scene and absolutely took over to redefine what it means to be 'super cool'.


So celebrate this legendary designer with these rose gold plated apple stud earrings (they also come in silver). The pretty pink posts feature pave crystals and green enamel inlay apple leaves. They perfectly epitomize the inspiration that this famous collection gets from all things retro and whimsical.


As they say, good things come in small packages!

Shoe of the Week - Pour La Victoire 'Larkin' Penny Loafer Pumps

Vamp up your look this upcoming Fall season with something super classic, yet ultra sexy!


With the preppy, collegiate look being one of Fall 2011's top trends, penny loafers will surely be the shoe of choice. But if the clunky classic doesn't do much for your feminine taste, then check out Pour La Victoire's 'Larkin' Penny Loafer Pumps.


Pristinely perched on a dangerously high, five inch stiletto heels, the patent pump is prepster perfect. Featuring a raised seam at the toe and a scalloped edge at the back heel cap, the shoe is offered in camel, navy and black patent leather. A hidden platform balances out the look.


Surely not your average loafer ... you won't be seeing the librarian in these!

Daily Obsesh - Green Double Bow Keeper Belt

With shows like Mad Men making a huge impact on fashion, it's no wonder that we are seeing the return of the waistline!


For the new Fall 2011 season, there will be plenty of dresses reminiscent of the 1950's - 60's where fitted waists and full circle skirts will most definitely be the silhouette of choice!


What better way to accent this feminine asset than a simple slim belt. Topshop's green double bow keeper belt is one of our favorites here at the Hive. In the perfect shade of classic Kelly green, the leather belt features two dainty bow keepers and a antique gold buckle.


Wear it with pretty dresses or, for something more casual, pair it with a crisp white shirt and some high-waist jeans. (It also comes in - light tan, orange, aubergine and oxblood versions!)

Bag of the Week - Nomad Scarf Handbag

Ethnic inspired prints are making a huge statement this summer from ikats to batiks, animal prints and serape stripes.


But, if these wild, and often, colorful prints are a bit bold for your taste in clothing, then why not catch the wanderlust spirit with a fabulous fabric handbag?


Lucky Penny's Nomad Scarf Handbag is a top pick here at the Hive. This spacious carryall is made from a printed silk scarf bearing zebras and sketched leaves. In a bright, of-the-moment coral, the bag is detailed with leather straps, a magnetic closure and three roomy inner pockets.


So, if solids are your go-to look, this handbag will certainly take a pair of flares and billowy white blouse to the next level. Yet, if wild is your way, then we suggest mixing this prints with another and really getting in touch with your inner nomadic spirit!

Daily Obsesh - Deena and Ozzy Quilted Stud Wallet

If you missed a good Spring cleaning of your handbag, then why not do it right now!


They say 'cleanliness is next to God-liness' and we think it's just about time to you dig in to that big, bulky wallet of yours. What's the use in toting around loads of discarded receipts from last month's multiple shopping sprees, ticket stubs from your fave band's show and all that other junk?


Less is more ... and so is the case for the Deena and Ozzy Quilted Stud Wallet. Offered in three great colors - yellow, peach and black - the slim wallet contains just enough pockets and cardholders to fit your essentials. Essentials being the key word.


Each one is made of quilted faux leather and trimmed in polished metal gold studs. It's compact size makes it perfect to slip into big and smaller handbags, but we think it's even cute enough to carry on it's own!
