Elaine Turner is a native Texan and she has created a very girlie, fun brand of bags, shoes and jewelry. The store was very welcoming and the salespeople were very nice and helpful, which always makes shopping a much more pleasant experience.

The store's current collection features a lot of cork, raffia and python bags and shoes, all of which I love. I think cork and raffia are just perfect for Spring and Summer.
Elaine Turner cork envelope clutch
Another stylish cork clutch, with variations in other materials
and colors behind it.
Multi colored raffia clutch. A nice pop of color with Summer whites.
Python clutch in vibrant hues
Super cute in a sleek, more structured shape. This is perfect for evenings out.
My favorite: a two toned raffia envelope clutch
I loved the envelope clutch bags and wanted to buy one to support the charity. I had a little trouble deciding between the cork and the two toned raffia version, but ultimately decided on the raffia. I think the black and caramel brown are a very sophisticated color combination. I can't wait to use it!
The store also sells some very chic jewelry and fabulous shoes....
Amazing cork sandals. Everyone at the party was going wild for these shoes and
trying them on. I think a lot of women bought them. I was tempted, too.
I am a huge fan of cuff bracelets. These are made with a special laminate process and had a unique sheen to them. The colorful one on the far left was really pretty.
A selection of lovely necklaces
In addition to cocktails and shopping there was a raffle for all the guests. One lucky attendee won this stylish red clutch.

I took a friend along with me to the party because she had met Elaine Turner years ago and was raving about the bags and Elaine's success in the accessories business. Now I know why! I'm definitely a new fan of the brand. Check out www.ElaineTurner.com/jointhefun to join the mailing list and receive 20% the first purchase.
