If a fashionista owns an iPhone, chances are she wants a designer case to go with it. Fashion designers are making their mark in the cell phone world by bringing out high fashion accessories for cell phones including a iPhone cases.
Louis Vuitton and Prada are a couple of the designers getting in on the iPhone craze. Louis Vuitton has came out with six different iPhone cases, one of which is no longer available. The different lines of Louis Vuitton iPhone cases include: Monogram Canvas; Damier Graphite Canvas; Taiga Leather; and as pictured above, Epi Leather. Louis Vuitton also came out with a limited edition Monogramouflauge iPhone case, which sold out very quickly and can no longer be purchased. The Louis Vuitton iPhone cases run from $240-$290, but when the next price increase comes around I’m sure they will go up!
Prada has also got on in on the iPhone mania and has come out with a rather stylish case for the over popular phone. Although, the Prada iPhone case may be fashionable, it sells out rather quickly. The Prada iPhone case is available in a grayish metallic color and it is absolutely stunning. The iPhone case by Prada runs for $140, which is not a bad price for a designer phone case.
Louis Vuitton iPhone cases can be purchased at eBay and Prada iPhone cases can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks Fifth Avenue does have the Prada iPhone available from time to time, but it does sell out quickly so be sure to check often.
The “Winter Accessories Sample Sale”
I think that they should have thrown this sale a couple months ago, and instead be throwing a “SPRING” accessory sale.
Even though, this sale is of last seasons stock, I’m sure there’s going to be some spectacular stuff, like a-l-w-a-y-s.
There’s going to be city boots, leather booties, gloves, equestrian caps and more from Gryson, Botkier, Jill Stuart, Cole Haan, Eugenia Kim and Diane Von Furstenberg.
Also they don’t exactly say handbags at the sale, but you can’t have an “accessory” sale without a couple bags, right?

Here’s proof that even top fashion designers come up with the most horrid designs every once in a while. I say they’re purposely done for attention, and clearly, it’s working. This catastrophe known as the SBC Shopping Bag is for the See by Chloe line and lets just say that this is no candidate for the next IT bag. My first though was, what is going on here? My second, who would wear this? I can’t imagine the typical Bagista’s accessorizing with something so odd, and to you gals who are fans of this piece; good for you, as finding duplicates of this shopper seems nearly impossible!
The most interesting part of this has got to be the insanely high price tag of $595! Overpriced? Possibly. Although the exterior lining of choice turns out to be fine lambskin, in which we all know never runs cheap in the World of Fashion.
17” x 11.5” x 5.5” seem to be the dimensions to this bag and if your in search for out of the ordinary, the SBC shopper could be the one. Interested? I suggest you wait until it hits the sales rack, or you can purchase this now over at: Bloomingdales.com

Zina Eva provides an eclectic array of exotic skins and textures, available in a wearable shapes that are all about practicality. The metal hardware gives the bags a very “now” feel, while the materials make sure that Zina Eva remains a classic.
My ultimate favorite handbag for the upcoming Spring season is the Fendi Peek-A-Boo bag in black patent. Everything about this handbag screams high fashion, gorgeous, and sophisticated.
The Fendi Peek-A-Boo handbag comes in a variety of colors but the most gorgeous one, in my opinion, is the black patent. The gold and silver hardware really stick out on the black version much more so than that of the other colors the handbag is available in.
Oh la la, amazing online sale coming your way that you’re going to wanna check out..
Italian fashion label Prada is teaming up with online sample sale site Rue La La for one amazing event for 48 hours only!
The sale starts February 24th at 11: am EST

Kooba Handbags – 23rd
Just Cavalli – 24th

Christian Louboutin will always be my shoe designer of choice, but I must admit that recently the designer brand has been making some pretty stunning handbags. I laid my eyes on the Christian Louboutin Pillow Medium Softy Satchel recently, and I was amazed. The handbag is gorgeous from every possible angle you can view the handbag.
The most unique and stunning feature of the handbag, in my opinion, are the diagonal zippers with the chunky acrylic pulls. Other amazing features of the handbag include: protective metal feet; a zip top closure; diagonal pleating; and lots of room for your stylish essentials.
The Christian Louboutin Pillow Medium Softy Satchel may be a gorgeous handbag, but the price is not so pretty. Being that Christian Louboutin is made in Italy, very item by the designer comes with a high price. The “Pillow Medium Softy Satchel” retails for $1,995 at Saks Fifth Avenue, and yes the price may be high but no one in their right mind can deny that this purse isn’t beautiful.
If you are saving for a purse that is absolutely stunning, as well as unique, I suggest that you get the Christian Louboutin Pillow Medium Softy Satchel. When a purse is this beautiful, who can go wrong?
