What's In My Bag: Accessories Buyer Edition

Not sure about you but I am slightly fascinated by YouTube's "What's in My Bag" videos. For us girls I think there's a type of validation that we get when we see that someone we look up to carries certain products. Windsor girls have some of the best things in their bags. Whether these be make-up, glitzy wallets or samples of things they are testing for customers; their bags are full of goodies.

In this post we are taking a peek at our accessory buyers' bag and we're sharing it with you so enjoy!



  • She always needs to carry a descent sized bag. When going out to see appointments she always needs to make sure that her bag is an asset and not a hindrance. She loves the versatility of this bag. You can carry it as a shoulder bag too! 
  • She always has to have her zebra sequin make-up bag for quick touch ups. This bag is actually a vintage Windsor stocking stuffer. The Hello Kitty mirror screams Kandee Johnson.
  • Even though she always carries a make-up bag she always seems to have her MAC Lipglass, powder, her fav nail polish and her Vitamin Shtick roaming free in the bag
  • She always has to have a few accessories in her bag to spice up an outfit. We can vouch for her and her love of rings and necklaces! Can you spot the necklace, rose ring, the stretchy gem ring and snake ring in here?
  • She doesn't carry a wallet perse. She actually uses this glitter zip bag to carry her money, receipts and cards. Much easier to control her "mess"
  • NEVER be caught without your sunglasses. Her's are fabulous!
  • We adore her key ring (Windsor of course). She can always find her keys in her bag regardless of the size of the bag
  • She is always traveling for work so hand sanitizer, protein bar and Diamond shaped earbuds are a must.
  • Sneak Peak for something that is arriving in stores soon: i-Phone covers. Do you love it?!

What to Wear on the First Day of School

Let's face it back to school time is one of the most stressful times of the year. Going back to school can be very hectic. From school supplies and finding parking and not getting lost to finding new and old friends to hang out with. Not knowing what to wear should not be something that adds to your stress level. Here is a simple, comfy and cute outfit that will at least take one item of that massive to-do list. There is nothing better than a worn in pair of distressed jeans under $40 to start your school day off right. Our simple floral print chiffon top under $20 is perfect since the weather is still a little hot but just in case the A/C is a little too high we added a grey short sleeve cardigan that's under $25. As far as accessories we added a few bangles and a boho ring as well as a butterfly necklace to complete the look. We added our comfy boots and of course a school tote bag to get you up and running for this new 2010-2011 school year!

What to Wear to an End of Summer Party: Kim Kardashian Inspired

The end of August is always a bittersweet time of year for us. Its the beginning of great Fall looks, accessories, cooler weather and the beginning of great Holiday parties! Sadly we also bid adieu to those fabulous summer nights to return to our "normal"schedules. For most, this is a time when we celebrate the end of summer and say good-bye to some friends. Of course, this also means that there will be a few end of summer parties (yay!). We're taking our queue from Kim Kardashian to recreate this rock princess look . Its actually a very simple party outfit. She kept her accessories toned down and she let her evening cocktail dress do all the talking.

Windsor's take is a two-tone strapless dress that's under $50, gladiator booties, our simple snake ring and a stud patent wristlet. The entire look is under $100!

Get the Look: Teen Choice Awards 2010

Award shoes are always a must watch at Windsor because they serve as fantastic inspiration for all our formal Homecoming dresses. Here's our take on these fab girls!

One of our fav up and comers is Victoria Justice. The girl can sing, dance, and act. Oh yeah, did we mention that she has the comedic timing of Lucille Ball. She's not scared to look silly for craft and we adore her all the more for it. However, when it comes to awards shows the girl  certainly has style that is nothing to laugh at. Love the blue dress and the pop of leopard in her shoes.  Our take adds, a leopard clutch and a little glitzy shoe and ring to complete the look.


Our next fav is another up and comer who has stormed into the teen scene with THE must watch show of the summer, Pretty Little Liars--yes, we are officially obsessed with Aria's style (and of course Ezra is nothing to wince at). Lucy Hale is quirky yet chic. When trying to recreate her look we actually skipped the dress and went for a top, cute skirt (under $8! btw) added a little bracelet, cute belt and of course a shootie and voila!




Our last girls of the night added all the glamour to the award show. Let's face it, an award show isn't complete without a little sparkle and Keke Palmer and Nina Dobrev certainly brought that! Nina has a little pop of color and subtle rhinestone detail on her dress. Our white homecoming dress is a great match to Nina's dress; simple and classic with a little sparkle detail. Keke went all out with a sequin and rhinestone covered dress. We added a little twist by using our sequin covered homecoming dress under $50 as well as our rhinestone bangle and ring!

Back to School Essentials: Basics!

Denim is definitely its own category when it comes to back to school essentials but there are some basics that are a must if you are to survive another year of homework, midterms, papers, dances, homecoming and Prom!

When it comes to basics there is nothing more important than plain tee's. They can be dressed up or down. They are great layering pieces that come in an assortment of colors and at these prices they are an easy must have!

You definitely need a good jacket and blazer for these coming months. It's such a bummer that this summer was a little gloomier than we'd like but Fall is one of my favorite season's because you can add layers to any outfit to look more put together. A blazer over a tee will make you look like a million bucks. A vegan leather jacket over a girlie dress will instantly add a little rock and roll to your look.

Shoes are another Fall staple. My must have item is the "shootie" This basic ankle bootie can we worn with dresses, skirts, pants, and jeans. It really is one of the most versatile options in the Windsor closet. Another shoe to have is a basic black ballet flat. It's not only comfortable but it is also quite adorable.

Back-to-School Essentials: Denim Edition

The time for back to school can be a bummer since gone are the sunny beach-bound days. It’s a time to return to school but also a time to re-stock our closets! This alone can be the best part about returning back to lockers and cafeteria food. No matter your style Windsor has you covered with our list of back to school essentials

       Distressed: This is an easy Summer to Fall transition because they are a summer staple that you can definitely wear through Fall. Just add a cute little lightweight sweater and some rockin' boots and you're set!


    Skinny: These are a basic wardrobe staple because you can dress them up or down by switching the shoes and accessories. That way you can wear them to class during the day and you can be Friday night-date ready in a jiff.


  Jeggings: Denim look with the comfort of leggings. Need we say more? These have to be our fav style in the office because you can look more pulled together than with leggings but you don't have to worry about these being to tight and uncomfortable like some ultra tight skinnies can be. Perfect look for back to school!


Bootcut: These are a wardrobe staple but for the Fall we prefer bootcut jeans to have a darker wash so that they can be worn day or night! Our rugby short sleeve sweater top is the perfect add on for the first cool days of Fall!
