The Row ‘Classic’ Bag is one of those that I would seriously wear the life out of! Knowing this in advance I would definitely take extra precaution and give a little more extra care from day one. Since it’s a lightly colored purse I can foresee color transfer to be an issue, but not enough to detour be from it’s beauty.
I live in a darker climate (Seattle) so 10 months out of the year my wardrobe consists of shades of grey and this neutral shade is the perfect accessory to go with. And this bag is most definitely wearable during the spring and summer seasons. It’s versatile color, clean lined design and style will remain timeless.
I can’t wait until my niece reaches pre-teen age and I can start buying her cute handbags like this Juicy Couture mini Gretchen.
I love every detail of this purse. It’s petite and the perfect size for a minimalist, crossbody strap for easy on the go fashion and comes in a very trendy bright neon animal print. I think this bag is ridiculously cute and I can totally see her wearing it!
The basics: This mini crossbody bag is made of coated canvas and accessorized with a tiny crystal adored turn-lock clasp. Measures in at 4″ height x 5″ length x 2″ depth with a 22″ strap drop – ideal for crossbody.
The 2 colors this bag is available in are neon Pink and Yellow leopard. My favorite is the pink. It’s a fun girly shade suitable for many spring / summers to come. The yellow leopard print is pretty lovely as well and such a hot trend for spring/ summer 2013.
The adorable Juicy Couture Mini Gretchen Bag retails for $128
On the go glamour!
There’s a reason why millions of bag addicts consider Chanel an investment. You can have one for years without worry of it going out of style. It’s also a plus that if you ever get bored with it, you can easily resell on eBay, and most likely get in the neighborhood of what you originally paid.
One of my current favorites for sale by vintage resellers WGACA (What Goes Around Comes Around) is this Vintage Chanel edition dressed in a silk quilting exterior and jewelry shoulder strap. It’s different than all the other classic quilted Chanel’s out there and for that reason I love it even more!

I’ve never been shy about expressing my dislike for handbags that are completely covered with a designers logo. It’s a bit showy to me, almost like a walking advertisement. But to each their own, right? It has always been my opinion that a quality made leather handbag stands levels above a canvas fabric signature print purse. So with that being said, I tend to go for timeless handbags without having the logo plastered all over the exterior. However there are a couple bags out there that I would make an exception for, one of those bags being the Gucci Cellarius Guccisima Sukey Bag.
Juicy Couture is one of those brands that has completely changed since when I first started my designer handbag obsession back in the early 2000′s. Back then Juicy Couture was known for their cutesy terry cloth bags, but since then they’ve added a bunch of new styles, with a more classic vibe.
Ever curious what other bags people are buying? Here are a couple of hot tamales that flew off store shelves this week from department store Neiman Marcus!
Prada Saffiano Lux Tote is the ultimate work tote! Couple years ago when I was on the hunt for a work tote I was bouncing back and forth between purchasing the Chanel Cerf and the classic black Prada Saffiano Lux tote. In the end I went the Chanel Cerf (partly because the Chanel SA was so sweet and helpful and) because I liked the softer, more relaxed style, whereas the Saffiano is all structure. Worth noting, this leather is incredibly durable! It will withstand daily wear. This bag is available in so many different colors, this one pictured here is the Caramel and retails for $1895.
You guys see that showstopping stud & crystal Valentino Rockstud I mentioned yesterday? That beauty was brand new to the virtual shelves and sold out within hours upon arrival. Without a doubt I’m sure that bag will be restocked soon.
Even if I couldn’t get my hands on that sparkly favorite, I think that this casual red version would be amazing to own. I like the simplicity of this one more, compared to the glammed up version. This one has the look that can be worn from day to night in easy transition. Whereas the glammed up version is more dedicated to cocktail hour and evening soirees.
What do you guys think?
