When I first glanced at the Diane von Furstenberg Harri Jewel-Embellished Box Clutch, I was a little confused as to what I was looking at. From a distance, the randomly placed embellishments almost make this piece look like a vintage suitcase covered in stickers from all over the world. But upon closer inspection, I realized that those “stickers” aren’t stickers at all. That isn’t to say they aren’t “vintage” though! Those colorful embellishments are actually pretty jewels in all shapes and sizes. When you look at them against the black suede background, it almost looks like you’re peering into your grandma’s jewelry box filled with brooches!
I’m more of a structured handbag type of gal. I like a handbag to keep its shape on its own, as I dislike being additional support, hence the reason I sold my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 to my little sis. But there is that party that prefers the smooshy, free-moving silhouette of an everyday accessory.
The Yuma Clutch by Grey Sunshine is an example of what might be a displeasing look to the majority of both groups. The effortless design of a single strip of disproportional leather makes up this day to evening clutch. It resembles a badly worn out accessory that can be found for grabs at a garage sale… or some type of chewy sour apple taffy. Regardless, there are some gals out there that can pull off a hip; downtown style and this clutch would be a perfect addition to anyone’s inner artisan. Croc print lines the genuine leather, and you must admit that the green hue is pretty eye-catching.
Ever since I was little, I always heard my Mother say how much she hated Patent leather. She always complained that it gets easily scratched and that the shine goes away rather quick. I guess, because of her despise for patent leather I grew up loving it. I actually prefer patent leather over any other type of leather. To me, it’s flashy and fun! Patent leather is a blessing in disguise, because if your bag gets dirty you can easily clean it! Sounds pretty amazing to me.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Alexander McQueen’s Skull Clutches ever since I laid my eyes on one. Every season the brand has the same clutch come out in the new collection, it’s just styled differently. Now, I’m absolutely loving one of the newest versions the “Classic” Skull Clutch.
As I get older my fashion tastes are changing. I’m now going from the edgy, rocker chick look to a more classy, sophisticated look. I’m now also loving designers who have a more classic look to their designs. One of those designers is, Vivienne Westwood. Westwood has always had impeccable taste when it comes to fashion and her designs are nothing but fabulous.
Ever since I was little I’ve always had an obsession with hearts. Even when Louis Vuitton introduced the multicolor heart change purse, I wanted it so bad but unfortunately I was not able to get my hands on one. Ever since then, designers have also been taking the heart change purse design, making it their own and selling it at a more reasonable price. Vivienne Westwood has designed the Metal III “Heart Bag” and I love it!
Tweed and boucle handbags have been sprouting up everywhere and Coach is no exception. This isn’t the first time, however, Coach has played around with tweedy fabrics. I remember quite a few styles floating around a few years ago, although I’m not sure how well they went over. Personally, I like seeing unexpected fabrics on handbags. This is especially true with Fall-ready fabrics like tweed and boucle. That’s why I was pleased to see the Coach Chelsea Boucle Flap Bag!
At the moment, Tory Burch is one of my favorite designers. My edgy look is fading and I’m falling in love with a more classy look. I suppose as you get older, you have to dress more like a woman and less like someone young. Tory Burch definitely brings class and sophistication to the fashion world.
