With a blue stripe pencil skirt from J. Crew and a Sonya Rykiel T-shirt embellished with lips and an eyeshadowed brooch serving as a delicate, girly canvas for the big, bright bag. Peg on a pair velvet-flocked suede leopard print Bloch flats and a Lanvin enamel and crystal heart charm necklace to complete the look.
