Would you Literally Brown Bag it? Marie Turnor Feast Clutch

I remember the days of younger when I would bring a brown paper bag lunch to school. It would include my juice box, a sandwich and a bag of my favorite chips. I think in those days I was loving Nacho Cheese Doritos and life was just easy. Now that I'm a grownup with grownup responsibilities I'm wondering if I can really make the Brown Paper Bag chic all over again. The Marie Turnor Feast…

Nothing to Wear? Check out my Spring Wardrobe Favorites!

If you're like me every time you look in your closet you have nothing to wear. It's even worse when it's time to change out your wardrobe for the season.
