Just in Time for Autumn- Tory Burch Wool Blanket Stripe Duffel Bag

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:16:10 PDT

Imagine yourself sitting out on the prairie, the sun setting over the tall grass. Hundreds of butterflies flutter among the fall blooming flowers dotting the landscape. Now this is the kind of fall I can get on board with! Oddly, the so-called prairie look has been lurking in the shadows lately. Somewhere between boho and cowgirl, prairie styles can really freshen up a fall wardrobe. Think neutral colors, tiny flowers, floaty shapes and even ruffles! And don’t forget the boots! But what about accessories like handbags? Can they join in on the prairie fun? Well, according to Tory Burch, they apparently can. Check out the Tory Burch Wool Blanket Stripe Duffel Bag! What a unique idea for a handbag! If you look closely, you will see the exterior is (literally) a blanket. Not a blanket for your bed, but one you might find on the back of a horse. Or, on the ground for a picnic. I really love the neutral earth tones. The taupe, cream, and burnt orange are gorgeous and perfect for the fall season. Note the size of this bag too, you could practically use it as a picnic basket (although that would probably be messy). If ...

Scarf Play – Moschino Love Moschino Fox Scarf Tote

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 12:48:22 PDT

Just like Moschino’s luxury collection, the diffusion line Love Moschino has had its fair share of unusual styles. However, in my opinion, the Love Moschino styles are unusual in a cute and playful way. Moschino’s luxury pieces can be downright weird. So I don’t mind writing about Love Moschino handbags, especially when they are as adorable as the one you see here. Meet the Moschino Love Moschino Scarf Tote! This simple, vegan-friendly tote features faux pebbled leather in rich classic colors. My favorite is the red one. Not only is red a great color that is both bright (for a pop of color) and neutral (goes with a ton of stuff) as the same time, it is also the color that comes with a super cute fox scarf. And I’m not sure if this was intentional or not, but it almost seems like the fox is a mockery of a fox stole. Either way, he is super adorable with his outstretched legs and sunglasses. Also available are blue (with duck scarf) and black (with panda scarf). Whichever color you choose, I think this would make the perfect basic tote for an everyday wardrobe. Want to add a little fun? Simply ...

Welden Escapade Saddle Bag

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 21:25:28 PDT

It seems like a new designer pops up practically every day! I really enjoy seeing new designers, especially when they offer something fresh and new to the never ending parade of handbags. And, as you probably already guessed, I am really liking the fresh, new look of the Welden Escapade Saddle Bag! Check it out for yourself. I think you will fall in love too! Welden really is a new designer. If fact, they are VERY new! The company was founded last year by boutique factory owners Cissy and Gary Chui and handbag development expert Sandy Friesen. Their signature feature is, of course, the great geometric weave you see on this bag. In fact, it is one of the first things I noticed when I came across this piece. The extra wide weave creates the illusion of 3-dimensional cubes. The look reminds me of modern art where cubes tied into cubes (tied into even more cubes!) start playing tricks on your eyes. I love the leather too! The raw texture really adds to the 3-dimensional effect. And, hey, the fact that this piece is a saddle bag style doesn’t hurt either. They are so hot right now! The Welden Escapade ...

Fall Fashion Handbag Trends: Micro Mini Mania

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:52:55 PDT

I know a lot of people don’t like mini bags. After all, they are small. Really small, in fact. So small you can’t fit much into them. How is that practical? Well, it isn’t. But mini bags are not meant for everyday use. They are meant for those occasions where you don’t want to carry a lot with you. Special events, girls night out, vacations and running errands are all occasions that come to mind when I think of mini bags. It seems many designers agree with me too! As we head into the 2016 Fall season, more and more mini bags are popping up from every designer imaginable. There are so many out there, it’s impossible to list them all. However, what you will find here are some of my favorites. Check them out! And, remember, never underestimate the power of a mini! Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Mini Affair Bag – $195 Not too dressy, not to casual. The Mini Affair is such a versatile style that could go anywhere from a friend’s wedding to a dance club. I love the quilted leather and chain strap. Very tough girl chic! Alexander Wang Mini Rockie Cross Body Bag – $595 Alexander ...

Fall Victorian Fashion – Marc Jacobs Ballerina Embroidered Bag

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:56:53 PDT

Marc Jacobs is such an interesting designer. I cannot get over the sheer amount of variety that Marc Jacobs brings to the table. It’s really impressive. Whether it’s his luxury collection or diffusion line, Marc Jacobs is always bringing us exciting and unique items. The possibilities are endless and I’m not surprised by anything this designer puts forth anymore. So when I saw the vintage-inspired Marc Jacobs Ballerina Embroidered Framed Bag, I wasn’t necessarily surprised, however still left in awe. This lovely bag simply have some things about it that stand out. My favorite feature that instantly caught my eye is the ballerina embroidery and sequin flower design. It reminds me of a jewelry box I have when I was a kid. You know the one I’m talking about. The kind when you opened the box the little ballerina underneath the lid would pop up. This bag is so much more than that. The design is whimsical and gorgeous at the same time. It has something magical about it. Adding to the beauty of this piece is the silky viscose/polyester fabric and antiqued brass hardware. It has a vintage-inspired framed closure and pouch styling – which is perfect for Fall ...

Exclusive Luxury: Dolce & Gabbana Enchanted Clock Box Bag

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:37:30 PDT

I don’t normally write about insanely expensive, over-the-top extravagant handbags. However every once in awhile, I can’t help but stop and take a closer look when one that is particularly interesting catches my gaze. I think that is what happened here because when I saw the Dolce & Gabbana Enchanted Clock Box Bag, I found myself mesmerized by the design. I suppose the word “enchanted” in the name is somewhat fitting here. For some reason it just stands out to me and holds my attention. I love the painted enamel-like look on the front. The swirls of blue in the background are gorgeous and reminiscent of a night sky. Surrounding the clock face are gilded adornments, which reminds me so much of my childhood home and the vintage clock hanging in my parents living room. Unfortunately, even though the clock face itself features a 3-D effect thanks to some clever layering, it isn’t a real clock. Other intriguing adornments incorporated in the Dolce & Gabbana Enchanted Clock Box Bag design include flowers, stars, snakeskin trim, and turn-lock closures. All together, this is one very extravagant bag! Even so, I don’t think it’s worth the five digit price tag – $13,000. ...

Back-to-School Backpack Style by Fjallraven, STATE, and Herschel Supply

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 10:14:30 PDT

It’s hard to believe that we are in September already and the summer season is behind us. Even more hard to believe is that it’s back-to-school time, and Public schools are already in session and college classes have already began. Where did the summer go? It went too fast for me, however one thing to look forward to is the back-to-school shopping! There is nothing more exciting that scoring an awesome new backpack for toting books and other school essentials. Backpacks can be super fun and, yes, super stylish too. You just have to know where to look, and keep in mind to not let style distract from function. Sometimes you find the coolest looking backpack but then after a couple wears you realize it’s not the most comfortable thing to wear. So I did some searching of my own and came across some delightful pieces here to get you started. Fjallraven Kanken Backpack – $75 An oldie, but goodie! The Fjallraven Kanken has been a go-to style for a long time (since 1978), but it still looks fresh and new. I love the structured feel and clean lines of this “boxy” style. Available in SO many colors and sizes! ...

Chloe Mini Hudson Autumnal Leaves Embellished Shoulder Bag

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 09:21:11 PDT

I feel I have written about a Chloe Hudson bag many times before. It seems like this bag keeps popping up on my radar, only slightly different each season. Which I’m going to file it under Chloe’s incredible ability to reinvent this bag over and over again. If it’s not broke (dated) then why fix it? Now comes the million dollar question: What is it this time? For the answer, simply check out the Chloe Mini Hudson Autumnal Leaves Embellished Shoulder Bag! Saddle bags are super hot right now! This is the second saddle bag style I have written about in a week! So I suppose it is no wonder the Chloe Hudson is being featured yet again. What I love about this particular version is the unusual adornment on the front. When I first saw this bag, I was a bit confused about what exactly those dangling hammered gold tone metal pieces were supposed to be. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that they are actually autumn leaves. Oh how I love nature-themed motifs on handbags! Animals are, of course, my favorite. But leaves are pretty cool too! I love how they rain down the front on dangling chains creating ...

Bottega Veneta Olimpia Mosaic Embroidered Intrecciato Bag

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 10:38:48 PDT

Is it me or does Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato leather feel a little overdone? I know, I know, it is their signature look. But after seeing it over and over again, it just starts to feel old and even a bit boring. Therefore, you can imagine the relief I felt when I saw the bag pictured here. Yes, it features the intrecciato leather, but it has a fresher look to it. Take a moment and discover the Bottega Veneta Olimpia Mosaic Embroidered Intrecciato Shoulder Bag, a new addition to the Autumn 2016 Handbag Collection. The Olimpia has been a longtime staple for Bottega Veneta and it’s really nice to see it updated. It is amazing what a little bit of embroidery will do! I love the loop embroidery on this piece, it adds such a rich texture. And I love the flower-like mosaic in transitioning colors – claret, chartreuse, and black. All of this on an ivory background. The color combination is unusual, but I’m really drawn to it for some reason. I think this bag would be perfect for the upcoming fall season. I think Net-A-Porter is on the right track here with their modeling picture. This bag would ...

Sophia Webster Flossy 3D Butterfly Leather Clutch

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 14:08:15 PDT

Can I just say that butterflies are just so overrated? It can’t be just the only one who thinks this way. I am aware that they hold specific meanings and symbolic significance, however you see them everywhere. It’s a trend that will never die. Which is why it is hard for me to get excited when I see a new handbag or clutch designed with a butterfly print. However, when I saw the Sophia Webster Flossy Butterfly Clutch, all of this just flew out the window. Butterflies are symbolic of hope, change, transformation, and new beginnings. So I suppose I can understand why they have become so popular. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love butterflies. Sometimes though, they just feel a little corny. Especially when it comes to handbags. But this little clutch is different. I love the 3-D butterfly affixed to the front of this pouch style clutch. Why do I love it? The answer is simple. Actually, no, the butterfly itself is simple. The butterfly is black leather, matching the color of the clutch rather than standing out. Bright colors can be fun, of course. But there is just something so sophisticated about relying on texture rather ...
