Okay, so I thought this was pretty interesting, and of course being a bag blog I had to point this out. From far away, or looking at a smaller or regular sized image it appears that Paris is toting along the Madison Audrey by Coach – oh but get this, it’s not! The bag is from her Paris Hilton handbag line. The design in my opinion is way too similar for comfort.
Love… love is… hmm, what is love? This is a very good question. But it is one that doesn’t come with an easy answer. If I were to guess though, I would say that love is this Heather Hawkins Large Love Is… Clutch (a giant-sized version of the designer’s original fold-over design). This lovely clutch is made of Italian patent leathers, all of which are hand-selected. I wouldn’t describe the leather as patent, however. It looks more like a glazed leather to me. The hand-woven crisscross pattern is gorgeous and the so-called patent leather adds a lot of dimension. It looks a little bit Bottega Veneta-ish, but it is more simple and the interwoven pieces of leather are greater in width. It’s no wonder that Heather Hawkins handbags are quickly becoming a celeb favorite!
If you’re Paris Hilton you have the capability of obtaining any designer handbag your heart desires. If you’ve been following the latest picture updates of the hotel heiress, you’ll spot her carrying some arm candy that high-end boutiques wouldn’t carry themselves. I’m referring to her own handbag collection, yes that’s right, Paris Hilton carries handbags by Paris Hilton! I applaud her for the reason that she stands behind her own designs by wearing them on a daily basis. Other than that, I would drop the tacky logo-infested pleather bag and sport a real couture piece, as of course she can afford it. What’s your input on this? Does Paris really enjoy carrying her creations for their designs and quality or would you call this attempt more of a walking advertisement? Personally, I wouldn’t store away my Balenciaga for a trendy Paris Hilton piece.

Who’s that hiding behind those large black shades? Why of course it’s Paris Hilton. I haven’t seen her as much in the tabloids or on my television screen (not that I’m complaining), but I am content to see what handbag she’s carrying at the moment. Paris is one of those celebs who carries the latest “it bag” and doesn’t let go of it until some other designer sends her a new one to advertise. Surprisingly, Paris bag of choice to the pumpkin patch was no other than a Chanel classic, it’s the Caviar Medallion Tote and it looks great! I wonder how old this tote is, for all we know, it could have been a hand me down from her stylish mom or a newbie fresh out of the Chanel boutique.
This versatile handbag can be worn day to night, dresses to denims. If you’re one of those unlucky fashionista’s who doesn’t live near a Chanel boutique as I am, test your luck on Authentic Chanel on eBay.

It’s Paris Hilton, digging through a Sony brand shopping bag while out and about in Cannes, France. What did the hotel heiress buy or receive? Who knows, but she sure doesn’t look too ecstatic over it. Dressed in a feminine floor length dress and in sparkly jewels with a shiny headband, Paris surely did complete her outfit with her extra lovely and classic white Chanel flap bag. I absolutely love her bag of choice, and with the spring/summer seasons in place right now, I’d nominate this as the perfect white handbag for the season. Everyone knows how versatile classic flaps are within their wardrobes as they make the perfect arm candies to wear dressed up or in casual wear, with your favorite tee and denims. The classic details of double chain link straps, luscious leather, interlocking C’s, and shiny silver hardware can be found on this piece.
Ladies, what’s your input on Chanel’s Classic Flaps? Paris Hilton sure does love her Chanel, and if you seek to add her handbag to your collection, visit your nearest Chanel boutique or shop right from home through the World Wide Web via: Authentic Chanel on eBay

Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton payed homage to his departed friend Stephen Sprouse, who passed in 2004, with the release of the limited edition (yeah it totally glows in the dark!) Graffiti line which made it’s big splash at Vuitton boutiques worldwide at the beginning of this year. The line features the classic Louis Vuitton design that has been revised in the fluorescent Monogram Graffiti canvas inspired by late American artist Stephen Sprouse.
The Bags Basics: The Louis Vuitton signature monogram canvas material is designed in the new fluorescent neon colored graffiti. This bag also features natural cowhide leather, which darkens over time into that lovely aged golden color, and is accessorized with the traditional shiny golden brass hardware, and the zip top closure with padlock. The spacious interior is dressed in fine textile lining with an interior patch pocket, ideal for your cellphone. Measurements of the 30 Speedy are 11.8″ Length x 8.3″ Height. The size is really amazing, it’s perfect size for your daily mission. To give you an idea of what you can stuff in a 30, check out what fellow blogger Marissa can fit in her Louis Vuitton Multicolore Speedy 30.
A celebrity favorite: “Queen of Pop” Madonna recently picked up the Sunset Orange. Paris the Heiress has been spotted everywhere around town with her Fuchsia. English supermodel, Agyness Deyn just added the neon green to her collection.
Now for the price. You can find the Louis Vuitton Speedy Graffiti, along with all the other Louis Vuitton products over on eBay. The Graffiti Speedy retails for $1,180. Plus don’t forget to pick up a black light!
If on the otherhand you’re looking for the real “original” Stephen Sprouse vintage Limited Edition piece, which the newer neon graffiti’s are inspired after, check out ebay. Of course remember to get it authenticated first. Right now there are two pieces available in “excellent condition” from highly rated “Power Sellers” and “My Poupette” recommended LV resellers
When I first took a glimpse of the CC Skye Niki Clutch, I instantly thought of Versace. When taking a quick look at the clutch you would literally think that it’s a piece by Versace due to the gold hardware. It’s not until you look closer that you can see that the clutch is in fact by CC Skye.
The CC Skye Niki Clutch comes in three different colors: Black; Electric Blue; and White. My favorite color the clutch comes in would have to be Electric Blue. The Black and White versions are also stunning, but the actual color of the blue is gorgeous and is more unique than the others.
Whichever color you choose, you can’t go wrong. Each CC Skye Niki Clutch would be stunning for either day or night. The clutch isn’t too casual or fancy, making it quite versatile. You could wear this clutch with either jeans and a top or an evening dress and it will still look fabulous.
The CC Skye Niki Clutch can be purchased in all three colors at Couture Candy for $310. The price is a little bit much for a clutch, but no one can deny that this clutch is a pure beauty.

Oh how nice it would be to have Miss. Hilton’s bag collection. It’s any true Bagista’s dream to own the latest and hottest accessory at the moment and then store it away when something new comes along. Paris has no problem doing that, as she never fails to obtain the latest pieces at the moment. Paris’ handbag of choice right now… Louis Vuitton’s Graffiti Speedy in Fuchsia.
Where is Paris going, who is she with? Who cares… she’s got a lovely Speedy on her. Dressed casual and in pink, I don’t think that finding matching clothing to her bag is necessary, as the Pop of color would look great among almost anything. She looks great, comfy, and proud of her ultra cute Vuitton bag. The graffiti line is adorable, so let’s hope she hangs on to her Speedy for a bit longer than expected, but who knows what LV will come up with next, meaning that this Speedy will soon meet its unfortunate end among the pile of past seasons bags, in the back of her closet.
Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton created these limited edition works of art, available right now to YOU, over at: eLUXURY

What do we have here? At first glance, one might mistake this bag for something off the Valentino or Prada runway. But guess again because this bag is actually made by (surprise!) Moni Moni. Introducing the Moni Moni by Cinzia Moniaci Lilies Bag.
This bag features beautiful petals, made of plush Italian leather, cascading down one side. The top layer of petals are hand painted with gold and white accents, giving them a more dimensional look. And like all Moni Moni handbags, the leather is washed and tinted to give it a vintage look.
Personally, I think this works exceptionally well with this bag. The petals look so soft and supple, just like the real thing! This bag truly is a work of art and would work well if someone was looking for a real statement piece. The best part is, you don’t need to be Paris to afford this bag either. It retails for only $675! Sweet!
Find this bag at Feng Junk, where it is available in Fuxia (purple) or Fauve (tan).
