The Queen of Hearts

…has brought us some new handbags! From the girliest girl we could ever meet comes a new stash of heart-embossed handbags: Betsey Johnson favorites (some older and some soon-to-be) are now at Just Jane. Just in time for Valentine’s Day and for you to drop a hint to the loved one to pick up one of these beauties…or for YOU to treat YOURSELF because no one’s actually single – some of us just prefer dating FREEDOM. Got me? Good. Now if only it was that easy to pick just one…

In celebration of the Destiny’s Child reunion at the Beyonce concert yesterday (ahem, Superbowl), we’re TALKING ABOUT COLOR….brought to you by Destiny’s Child 2000 tune, Say My Name.

Ready to branch out of a wintertime-induced color rut? The sun is shining here in AZ and since Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, expect an early spring!!! Feeling inspired? Look at our vivid new additions to the Just Jane family of accessories:

Beauty Bang

So you know we love to pair everything with a great handbag, as we live, breathe and die handbags here at Just Jane. We’ve covered everything from shoes to hairstyles (though, shoes can always use a little more love, if you ask me) and today, we’re giving you a little glimpse which beauty trends we love fit best with the newest handbags we love. Got a thing for eyeliner? Make it pop! Adore yourself some crazy lashes? The bolder, the better. Keeping the look fresh and classic? All reds are welcome..

Now, what are we talking about and how do these pair up with your favorite accessory?

1. Keep those red lips matte and pair with a tough black handbag for a don’t-mess-with-Texas Audrey vibe. There’s nothing sexier than red lips and an attitude. Seen at Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013, paired with the Steve Madden Idoll satchel.

Whether you were born with it or glued them on (like most of us) a subtly glamourous tote does not take away from and only expounds the shock factor. Beautified at Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2013, paired with the BCBGeneration Mason tote in gunmetal.PicMonkey Collage2 3. It seems a little 80s, but just stay from the colored mascara and crazy eyeshadow, leave it to the liner to add a pop of color and your teal-rimmed eyes will light up the night (or day). Any shade of blue or green or blue/green will do, and it’s even prettier a little smudged. Capitalize on the color with one of Spring’s pastel blue bags. Paraded at Stella McCartney Spring 2013, paired with the Steve Madden Regan crossbody in mint.  PicMonkey Collage3All model photos via Harpers Bazaar

 

Pink Pandamonium

Similar to the fact that I’ve been slacking on the Just Jane blog is the obvious statement that pink equals spring and spring equals pink. As a girl who adores pink but cannot wear it and does not feel right in a room full of Barbies and people in pink lipstick, pink has to be the exact right shade for me – and you may agree. Pink has to be either shocking, bright and scandalous or soft, subtle and virginal. I love me an obnoxious pink neon or that type of pretty, ethereal pink that makes you think of babies and macarons, but hand me a bag in a Pepto-Bismal shade and I’m bound to do exactly what Pepto-Bismal is supposed to help you avoid. This is why I’m ecstatic that pastels are back for Spring, and while they’re showing up in toughened styles with studs and silver and black or cognac, this season’s pink is as soft as baby’s bottom. No idea what’s going on? Need to be convinced that pink isn’t as sickeningly sweet as its poor reputation expounds? Then take a look…
