All about Valentine’s!


a b c d e f g h
This week is all about Valentine’s Day! What to wear, which heels to choose, and where to go!
We love Valentine’s Day, and love any excuse to get all dressed up. Evening wear and evening bags are our FAV. And If you’re anything like us, you are already thinking about what to wear and here is a little help from us. Women’s handbags online, clutch bags, evening bags and sassy heels have never been so easy to find at http://www.niclaire.com.au – so take a look at our Valentines Catalogue, and read below for some inspiration on accessorising your perfect outfit!

If you’re not sure what to wear..then why not go with a LBD (little black dress), then you really cant go wrong! Something sexy & sweet, and you can accessorise with almost any colour! And thats where the FUN begins. More than just something that holds your lipstick, the perfect clutch bag, can really make an outfit. Especially if you’re wearing something plain, or a block colour – you can always add a little shine to your outfit with a dazzling crystal clutch bag, a glitter perspex clutch or maybe a shining satin evening bag. Clutch it by your side or add on the extra chain strap – all of our gorgeous clutches come with a detachable strap, so that its completely up to you!

Maybe you’re wearing some dashing colour – so you can either match your clutch bag to your shoes, to your dress OR go completely out there and clash (on purpose!)
We have a huge range of womens clutch bags, all sorts of different styles, colours and materials. One we personally recommend would be the very trendy and stunning Classic Transparent Designer clutch. A clutch that will go with almost everything, and it will add a touch of runway to any outfit! You can choose whether to bare your secrets and show all that is inside your clutch bag, or you can use the gold pocket insert and keep it a mystery! With this clutch available, and selling fast at The Iconic Australia and also on our website http://www.niclaire.com.au – you need to get your hands on one soon or you’ll miss out!

If you want something not OVERLY dressy, but still slick and classy. You could go for something like our Leather Safari clutch. A genuine leather clutch bag, in various wild print patterns. There is the Snakeskin in Orange clutch, Python print in Blue clutch bag, Croc skin in Olive clutch and so much more. This will bring a little colour to your outfit and is a great medium sized clutch bag! This one you can even strap on the extra leather strap and use at any time of day – which is great.

Then theres the shoes. Leather heels, peep toe heels, platform heels, wedges, ladies sandals – ladies heels are a HUGE decision, so were not saying make this one lightly. But we are saying, take a look at http://www.niclaire.com.au as we have heaps of different choices and styles – and pride ourselves on having COMFY sexy heels.
Black patent leather heels, suede leather heels, nude patent leather heels, watermelon peep toe heels, classic shimmering silver pumps – there are heaps to choose from.



We hope we have helped! And last but not least, here are a few of our favourite sydney restaurants you could try – if your stuck!

– Vicinity (Alexandria) – the food is to die for.
– Mad Pizza (Newtown) – a gorgeous italian restaurant with a great atmosphere.
– Rock Pool (The Rocks) – simply amazing food.

We hope all of you have AH- MAZING valentine’s days. Whether you are spending it with your other half, or your special bestie. There’s always a reason to get all dressed up😉
Much love and handbags,

Summer Lovin! Our favourite Summer Trends, Summer Smoothie & how you can score yourself a Summer Freebie!

So its officially Summer. A time when we all start heading to the beach, smiling a little more, wearing brighter colours and start getting bitten by mosquitos! Regardless of the mozzies, Summer is our favourite time of year at Niclaire, and this weeks blog post is all about Summer. We may be a fashion blog but who doesnt love summer smoothies and summer freebies?!

So first off, the trends. As soon as summer hits, all the bright colours and swimmers come out and some of us even change our hair to go with this beautiful weather. Bright accessories are a huge trend in Summer and a great way to brighten up your wardrobe, and spice some old winter outfits with a simple clutch or handbag!
Clutch bag, Handbag, shoulder bag, heels, flats, phone covers – you can’t go wrong with a bright coloured accessory like this. You can either go with quite a neutral outfit, and then accessorise with a bright coloured handbag or tote bag or you can mix and match! You could even match your bright purple pumps, to your bright purple leather tote. We have a huge selection of  great coloured women’s accessories, so why not try something new and bold this summer? If you can’t be bold in summer then when will you be?!

If you ARE looking for a bright new coloured handbag, tote bag, clutch bag, or even pair of heels, check out http://www.niclaire.com.au right now. In our latest ‘Lost In Love’ Collection, we introduced some great bright colours into our ladies leather handbags and designed some unforgettable leather tote bags. Also, if your heading out, for a night of fun, we have some bright coloured clutches that will keep it classy, but give you a bit of colour and pop in your outfit!



Then, there’s the jewellery..big chunky, bold jewellery is back in. Gold bangle bracelets, big chunky gold women’s necklaces and statement jewellery. Take a look below..
We have a range of beautiful bold jewellery at Niclaire that is also affordable! Women’s bracelets, necklaces, earrings and so much more.


NOW..we have a summer treat for you. We have just launched our ‘Summer Lovin’ contest in the summer spirit and are giving all of our gorgeous customers to walk away with a $150 Niclaire voucher to spoil yourself at http://www.niclaire.com.au – its free to enter – so dont wait! Buy yourself the leather handbag you’ve been dreamin of😉

And last of all, we had to share this delicious recipe with you. At the end of the day, after a big day of photographing, editing & talking to all of our lovely customers about clutch bags, handbags and heels, this is how we like to cool down and relax, with a big glass of one of these babies.
Much love, and handbags,

Celebrity Style Clutch Bags!






This week its all about CELEB STYLE!
If you are anything like the rest of us girls at Niclaire, you LOVE a bit of celeb style/inspiration. All of those gorgeous actresses and models with endless amounts of money and resources always look TO DIE FOR, and we cant help but dream!

We at Niclaire definitely do our research and before we design our handbags, clutches, heels and accessories, we like to look at what inspires us. All the latest trends of the runway, red carpet, our beautiful customers and our beautiful country! We like to find out exactly what YOU are looking for, and also love getting inspiration by all the latest trends. This week we are focusing on our gorgeous clutch range. Evening bag, clutch bag, acrylic clutch, crystal clutch, knuckle clutch…whatever you wanna call it, a ladies clutch bag is MUCH more than just an accessory. As you’ll see on the red carpet, the clutches are very thought out and always tied in with the gorgeous gowns and outfits.

Women’s bags online, can be hard to find, hard to troll through and find exactly what you are looking for. We at Niclaire try to give you a variety of designs, shapes and sizes for every girl out there all in the one online fashion store.

A few tips to help style your clutch to your evening outfit:

– Pick a colour from your outfit and match this colour with your clutch bag.
For example, if you are wearing a black dress with a red belt, why not go for a red evening clutch to bring a bit more colour to your outfit? This will make your clutch pop and also tie in very well.

– Match your clutch to your shoes.
Maybe you’re wearing a purple dress, but have decided on some patent black leather heels, why not go with a black clutch? Then your heels won’t be all on their lonesome and the clutch will add that perfect touch to your outfit!

– Add a bit of sparkle.
Maybe you’re wearing a simple, yet elegant dress, but just want to add a tinge of glamour to your outfit, but don’t want to over do it? You want to make an impression, but don’t want to be the only one people are staring at? Why not try a dazzling crystal clutch bag. Made from a gorgeous metal frame and covered in crystals, you’ll be sure to stand out in the crowd.

– The cherry on top.
Is your outfit looking great, but you want to add something a bit special? Why not go with one of our glitter infused acrylic clutches? Subtle yet so ON TREND, these gorgeous clutches are great and so versatile. Clutch them in your hand or hang them by your side, your belongings will be safe and looking fine!

Want to look very trendy whilst looking super classy? Why not try the Classic Transparent designer clutch. These clutches are all the craze right now, super classy. Bare all your hidden secrets, or opt for the gold pocket insert, to keep them guessing!

We’ve had a great year with existing partners like The Iconic, Brands Exclusive and many independent boutiques around Australia, and were also very excited to create new partnerships with huge sites like Graysoutlet.com, oo.com.au and TVSN.

Its competition time again, and this week all you have to do is tell your Ultimate Christmas Wish to go into the draw to WIN a $200 Gift Card to spend at http://www.niclaire.com.au

*Competition Ends 17th December. *One winner will be drawn.


Results from our Survey Competition!

Last week we ran a survey competition..all you had to do was simply fill out the survey for your chance to win a $200 Gift card for http://www.niclaire.com.au and we had a GREAT response! We found out all about what YOU want to see in a handbag, and what your ultimate handbag would be. So we thought we post a few answers to our last question on the survey..which was “Describe your ultimate handbag in detail” here they are…

– The one I have is the best so far, it is a med-large tote with 2 short shoulder straps,2 side pockets, and a zip pocket on the outside, 2 phone pockets inside a small zipper pocket a large zipper divider, and then a large zip accross the top.  Black, and I think leather.  Great one for me. 

– Soft Orange leather with a magnetic closure, clip or small pocket for keys which is easy to get to while carrying lots of shopping or trying to open the door. Tote style medium size for carrying at the elbow leaving hands free.Lots of pockets for phone, toiletry bag, tissues etc.

– Leather, 2 thick straps, No pockets on the outside. 1 Inside pockets and phone pouch. Apple Green, Black or Cobolt Blue. 20-30cm deep and no more than 50cm long. Must have a solid base and be self standing. A little clip inside for keys to be clipped in so they are easy to find quickly. 

– Large pocket on the outside front that can hold my phone, car keys, lip gloss, etc.  Pocket on the back thats a little smaller for shopping lists, etc.  zip up pocket inside for personal notes, etc.  Two sections insdie one for purse and things needed on a daily basis and the other section for things used on occassion such as cheque books, etc.  Zip closing but also a clasp that clicks shut….straps so it can be worn as a back pack.  Orange leather.

– It would be a neutral colour, a brown or black. A long and short strap, so I can hang it from my shoulder if I wish. It would be big enough to put a drink bottle and A4 books in. I don’t like chains or charms as they are heavy and fall off or attach to things. A simple design and smaller compartments accessible from the outside are always handy for tissues.

– All pockets on the inside, a large centre one and one on each side all with zips. Love pink or beige leather with a shoulder strap. Sometimes I go for a slouchy bag sometimes something a bit squarer or structured but must have lots of room inside. 

– I like black as it goes with any clothing item . I like a long strap as it does not hurt your shoulders . Soft leather as it feels comfy. I like a few compartments inside . One for coins money and phone . One for medications as I’m on many perhaps one for paperwork and then the mani body to carry around everything including the kitchen sink lol and it needs to be reasonably large cause with seven kids I’m always holding every bodies bits and bobs 

These are just a handful of your answers! Thanks so much for entering and keep an eye out for our next competition🙂
