It may be summer here in the United States, but Nicole Kidman was dressed seasonably-appropriate while visiting her family in Sydney, Australia last week. After all, it’s winter there in the Land Down Under! She looks so chic in her black leather jacket, dark gray scarf, and blue jeans. But what really caught my eye was her handbag! It is the Prada Framed-Top Satchel and, man, is it gorgeous!
This rich, calf-skin bag is from Prada’s Spring/Summer 2010 Collection. The bag came in two sizes, but it looks like Nicole’s is the larger one. I love the framed-top opening with its unique snap closure. It helps add some interest to this otherwise simple style. And don’t let the fact that this is a satchel scare you off, the Prada Framed-Top Satchel comes complete with an optional shoulder strap as well! This bag is so structured and chic, it would make a great investment piece and a strong cornerstone to any handbag collection.

Nicole Kidman spotted out on a relaxing afternoon the other day on her way to a spa in Los Angeles, with the fabulous Faithful tote by McQueen slung over her shoulder.
Ever since the devastating news broke that Alexander (real name, Lee) McQueen commit suicide earlier this month, his bags have been flying off store shelves. Don’t get me wrong, Lee McQueen was such a brilliant designer with a long trail of celebrity and everyday people followers, who when the chance is right, snatch up the latest offered by the designer – handbags, skull scarves, accessories, shoes and apparel. However, after his passing, with the news that the McQueen brand will live on, but with a different designer holding the reigns, (and Gucci playing a big part in that) it’s a no wonder why everybody is flocking to get a piece of the McQueen.
Any McQueen admirer, such as myself is well aware that the McQueen brand will never be the same.
So get an original McQueen while you still can! Nicole Kidman’s amazing Faithful is available: Here at Zappos. According to their ticker, there are only 3 bags available. Then it will be gone, forever.
I for one am a huge fan of Tod’s handbags. As well as their shoes.. as I sit here in my office wearing a pair of cobalt blue suede pumps by Tod’s. Totally comfortable by the way. I can walk miles in them!
Over at Saks Fifth Avenue they have the Tod’s D-Styling 2 Manici Media Tote in stock in this amazingly gorgeous Grey color. The style is a little bit different than Nicoles version, however in every way as equally gorgeous.
If you’re in the mood for finding a frugal deal, check out the Tod’s on eBay. You wont believe some of the deals. There’s everything from gently loved to overly adored in the price range of about 50-70% off retail, with a couple newer styles marked only a couple hundred off retail. Which is still an amazing deal at that.
Whichever you fancy, you will love your Tod’s! So classic and timeless. Even Princess Diana was wearing the original D-Bag Bauletto bag back in the late 90′s.
