As we all know, I’m a huge Rebecca Minkoff fan. She’s one of my Top 3 favorite designers and everything she designs is flawless to me. One of my favorite designs by her is the “Pouch”. It’s simple, the colors it comes in are always pretty and the sayings featured on them are always adorable! As today is Sunday, May 12, which happens to be Mother’s Day I ran into the “Hot Momma” Pouch on Neiman Marcus and I thought it would be appropriate to write about. I may not to be a Mother, well I did adopt a cat seven years ago but that’s besides the point, but I do think this pouch is the perfect gift for someone that is or about to be. If I had seen this pouch before Mother’s Day I probably would have bought it for my Mom! Every Mom wants to be told they’re hot and what Mom doesn’t need a gorgeous little pouch to carry with them every single day?
I’m really extremely excited right now and I just have to share! Finally after two long years my cellphone contract is set for renewal, which means it’s time for a new phone. Yeayyyy! Obviously this time around I’m going with an iPhone! I had the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation iPhone but a couple years ago I was going through some sortof anti-iphone stage. Everyone had one, plus I fell in love with the HTC Inspire – huge screen and took awesome photos. But that’s not enough to keep me. I miss not being able to buy cute and stylish designer phone cases, plus there are quite a few apps that I’m missing out on.
So right this very moment I’m sitting here blogging about iPhone Cases while waiting for the delivery man to get here with my new Apple iPhone 5!
Here are a couple of my favorites, in no particular order.
Pierre Hardy Cube iPhone Sleeve. $110
Love the building block coated canvas print – Pierre Hardy’s style signature. One may say slightly M.C. Escher – ish?
Has anyone ever heard of MOYNA New York? I stumbled across some pieces from this designer recently and… what can I say? My interest was definitely piqued by these delightful little pieces! In particular, I’m really liking the MOYNA Beaded Pouches you see pictured here. They are just so cute and they have captured my imagination. I decided I needed to know more about this designer. What I found out was somewhat surprising.
I have developed a fondness for Charlotte Olympia lately. Why? Well, that is a very good question. But it’s also a difficult one to answer. To be honest, I’m not really sure what the allure is. For some reason, I just feel drawn to these unusual pieces. Perhaps it’s simply because I like to see something new. Let’s face it, Charlotte Olympia’s designs are not something you see every day. Plus I’m excited because this latest season was inspired by the city of love — Paris! However, these pieces aren’t inspired by what I would call your typical Paris icons. Take a look at the Charlotte Olympia Perfume Perspex Clutch and you will see what I mean.
Summer stripes anyone? This recurring nautical trend is always on the top of my list around this time of the year. I can never get enough of it.
This on-the-go Michael Kors wristlet clutch is made of Saffiano leather and accessorized with gold colored hardware.
What’s great about this clutch is that it’s not just a plain pouch. The interior features internal pockets and card slots for easy organization.

In the world of mini, there are two things I have noticed lately. First, wristlets are still holding a strong presence. And second, the canteen-style bag is making an apparent comeback. While these things are great by themselves, I have to admit I am intrigued by the idea of a round wristlet. I have seen them in the past, but for some reason this idea feels new. Perhaps it’s just the fact that I haven’t seen one in awhile. The round shape is canteen-like, but since we’re talking about a wristlet here it’s even smaller than a mini bag. So when I saw the M missoni Graphic Zigzag Wristlet, I thought it would be fun to give it a second look.
I’m a sucker for fashionable tech accessories. Just today, a co-worker of mine couldn’t believe I had a Henri Bendel iPhone 5 case. I see tech accessories just like anything stylish that we would put on our bodies or carry around. We always tend to dress up our technology devices in things that are “so us” or a reflection of who we are. For instance, all my tech accessories are either designer or pink because that’s me. With that said, I fell in love with the Marc by Marc Jacobs Neoprene Tootsie Flower Laptop Case.
I’ve only been an iPhone owner since December and at first I was looking for the perfect cover. I wanted a cover that was me and if people saw it they would say it was so me. After searching high and low, I found the perfect iPhone 5 case at Henri Bendel. It’s simply a woman walking down 5th Ave in New York holding Henri Bendel shopping bags. I love Henri Bendel and it was definitely the best case for me. Now that I’ve found a case I love, I’ve been on the hunt for a wallet that will hold my iPhone, cash and cards. Just today, I was searching in Nordstrom for one and I didn’t fall in love with any of them. Coincidentally I came home and I fell in love with the Tory Burch “Robinson” Smart Phone Wallet. It’s simple and the color is so eye catching!
Obsessed: Saint Laurent Y iPhone Case
Even though the name has changed to Saint Laurent, the fashion house is still holding on to the classic Y line in tribute to the late Yves. Which is fantastic news if you ask me! I love my “YSL” logo bags and I can’t wait to add another to my collection. One that I have on my wishlist is this phone case – all I need is an iPhone to go with it! Right now I have the HTC inspire which I really like but my phone plan is set for renewal in a couple months and when that happens it’s time for a change, and I’m going back to the iPhone.
