The cross body style trend is so huge for summer, but there is a con to this style that you need to be aware of.
Earlier this week I witnessed one of the biggest wardrobe malfunction bloopers that could happen. True story..
When it comes to affordable handbags, Coach is at the top of my list. The company has taken their handbags in a new direction over these last few years and it has been so much fun seeing them take on a completely new look. Coach handbags now have this aura about them. It is youthful, yet sophisticated. And it looks like Coach is continuing to head in this direction with their latest collection for Fall 2010. Introducing the new Mia Collection!
This lovely new collection is composed of simple, yet structured shapes accented with military-inspired blazer button hardware. And as far as fabrications go, the Mia Collection has a little something for everyone… from signature prints to leather, even this new (and super cute) Ocelot print! So far, I am liking everything I see! I love how these bags are understated, modern, and chic. Plus they are available in colors that will be perfect for Fall! Check out my favorite pieces from this collection below!

Seems like Adriana Castro pieces have been on alot of celebrities mind this season. Earlier this week Castro’s envelope Lizard Annie Clutch was photographed in the hands of Eva Longoria.
Above, Khloe Kardashian showed up at the A Night With Power Balance “All-In For A Cure” at Drai’s Hollywood in Hollywood, California with Adriana Castro’s Vibora Clutch in Python and caiman fuscus Crocodile.

The “Desperate Housewives” beauty, Eva Longoria arrived at the annual Hollywood Foreign Press Association Installation Luncheon, in Beverly Hills, California event earlier this week. For the occasion Eva paired her classic-cut black dress, and fabulous nude shoes (that I can’t stop staring at) with Adriana Castro’s envelope-style Annie clutch in natural colored exotic Lizard.
The Lizard Annie Clutch is available in Natural, Royal Blue and Red. Retails for $1,400.
In 2009, the must-have color for handbags was Cobalt Blue. This gorgeous color made an appearance in the collections of many, many designers. This color was so hot, it’s no wonder everyone wanted a piece of the action. So is this color trend dead in the water? From the look of things, not by a long shot! That’s right, the hot new color for Fall 2010 is… (drum roll)… Electric Blue! It’s a new name, but virtually the same color. Just check out the Cobalt Blue bags I wrote about back in 2009 and compare them to the Electric Blue bags I have pictured below. Pretty much the same color, aren’t they? But hey, that’s okay! This is probably one color I will never grow tired of, especially when it comes to handbags.
When you think of J.J. Winters, what is the first thing that comes to mind? If you answered fringe, then give yourself a pat on the back! Yep, nothing screams J.J. Winters like the word “fringe”. The designer is also well known for her use of suede, which always looks so lovely with fringe. But it looks like J.J. Winters has been experimenting a little bit. Here we have a bag that is composed of distressed, vintage-looking leather. Don’t worry though, the designer kept the fringe! Meet the J.J. Winters Fringle Bag!
