This is one of those bags that will stop you in your tracks! A beautiful combination of leather & satin and crystals & studs – classic elegance meets rocker chic.
The body of this bag is dressed in a soft shade of powder-pink leather and muted grey silk satin front panel and accessorized with hand-embellished rows of shimmering crystals set in an antique silver finish and trimmed with the signature ‘Rockstud’ soft gold pyramid studs. So gorgeous.
The ultimate “Campus” cross-body bag is here. I finished up my schooling years ago from University and I can tell you the petite cross-body style is the ultimate essential. Think about it.. you have your school tote with all your books in it, which weighs on average at any given moment somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds. Why they don’t have download-able textbooks yet gets me. So when you want to run to the lavatory, go on a coffee run or go grab lunch, your not going to want to lug all that around. And sometimes a simple wallet isn’t going to do the trick. Have you ever tried carrying a drink carrier while trying to hold a wallet and an umbrella in the wind? (Yea, I live in Seattle) Not a fun experience. If I was still in school, the Frye Campus Mini Cross-body would be on the top of my list!
Joie is a contemporary brand that I’ve been a fan of for years. Ever since I first tried on one of their beautiful flowy blouse tops I was instantly hooked. That was years ago back in the earily 2000′s, since then they’ve added shoes and in the Fall of 2012 added handbags to the line.
When I first laid eyes on the Joie Kennedi Tote I fell in love with it for its simple design and classic look – the spacious weekender size, easy to care for coated canvas and the danty thin shoulder straps. In fact it reminds me a lot of the Goyard St Louis tote – similar in design but when it comes down to the price tag, they’re hundreds of dollars apart.
So Coachella starts in a couple weeks, right? I’m sure all of you who plan on going have your outfits and accessories planned out by now, but did you know Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent designed a bag especially for the music and art event? It’s called (obviously) the ‘Coachella.‘ A natural chocolate leather pouch (perfect size for the essentials) with cross body strap. Even if you aren’t planning on attending Coachella, this is one hot summer bag.
When I first saw this clutch the first thing that blurted out of my mouth was, “ohhh this looks like a Croissant.” Not to be mean of course, that’s what this clutch looks like to me. Then I read the description and saw that this bag was in fact made to replicate this famous French crescent-shaped breakfast puff pastry, in gold form. I personally think this clutch is delicious gorgeous and worth taking a double glance.
I’m a firm believer in that every girl should own a clutch in their closet. Whether you’re going out for brunch, after work drinks with friends or out on Date Night, a classic clutch is your best accessory.
One clutch I have particularly become drawn to is this Aquatalia by Marvin K ‘Fad’ clutch, so when I was asked to review and give my honest opinion I was extremely excited.
Made in Italy and offered in the contemporary handbag price range, the craftsmanship of this clutch is exquisite. High impact ultra-glossy shades of navy and beige panels color-blocked with a hint of exotic textured emerald green come together on this clutch.
Besides the beautiful detailing of this clutch, the features are worth taking note of. What’s great about this bag is that it comes with a removable shoulder strap, for those days you feel like going hands-free. When not in use leave it tucked away inside and if you change your mind 30 minutes into the date, pop it out, clip it on and whala, a shoulder bag. The size is also very generous. Spacious enough for all your daily essentials this clutch measures in at 10″ width x 5″ height x 1.5″ depth, which is a perfect fit for a wallet, mini touch-up cosmetic pouch, cellphone.
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.

Don’t you just love Gucci’s latest spring/summer 2013 evening accessories? This ultra sheer clutch was made for summer evening out on the town. The soft colored perspex frame is just the right size for the bare essentials, that you don’t mind having put on display. Measurements 8″W width x 4.7″ height x 2″ depth. What I love about the perplex design is that it’s not just a plain clear box, the design crafted in gem stone pattern.
What do you guys think of Gucci’s latest transparent clutch? Is it true that less is more?
