Last week, I bought myself the Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 30 Bandouliere at the Neiman Marcus here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It’s a bag I wanted for quite sometime and I was so happy that I was able to buy it myself. I’ve used it every single day since I’ve had it and I love it to pieces. Now I’m on a mission to find a beautiful black leather bag with gold hardware that I can’t live without. I’ve looked at Louis Vuitton but unfortunately they don’t have anything that fits what I want in a black handbag. However, when I saw the Prada Saffiano Promenade Bag I think I may have found a winner. The Prada Saffiano bags are always drop dead gorgeous but this one is simply breathtaking. The structure and simple style of the bag are stunning and would fit my style perfectly. The bag exudes sophistication and is incredibly classy. I know if I bought this bag I would use it all year long. Black handbags are always in style and perfect for any season and outfit. They’re elegant and anything goes with black making it the perfect handbag to own.
We all know the handbag brand Gryson, but did you know about IIIBeCa? The handbag line was launched about a year ago by Joy Gryson. What I love about IIIBeCa bags is that not only are they affordable and incredibly chic but a portion of the proceeds are donated to three NYC nonprofits: 9/11 Memorial (911memorial.org), Family Focus Adoption Services (familyfocusadoption.org) and Memorial Sloan-Kettering (mskcc.org). Seriously, how cool is that?
The classic LBB (little black bag) is a staple. It goes with everything. I think that everyone should have at least one in their closet. One that I recently fell for is the Gerard Darel Plum bag in perforated black leather. I’m not the only one who’s obsessed with this style. Jessica Alba, a major fan of Gerard Darel handbags, has been spotted all over, from LA to Paris with this bag.
Color-blocking is still a hot trend right now, so don’t pack up those bags just yet. I have a love-hate relationship with the color-block trend. I think it looks fabulous when like colors are used (neighbors on the colorwheel) but not when the colors are random (like pairing orange, blue and brown on one bag). It’s too chaotic for my style. I know some may look at all the different color combinations as trendy, but I prefer more of the classic look. To me this Miu Miu Madras Two-Tone Bag will look fabulous even beyond the “Color-Block Trend” deadline.
Have you guys checked out the new Miss Dior Handbag Campaign yet? For those of you who didn’t see it yet, here is a great 40 second behind the scenes clip featuring Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as the face for Miss Dior.
I have three favorite colors black, pink, navy and white. I love the colors alone, paired up or all together. As of last year, we’ve have seen black/white and navy/white fashion everywhere! The colors together are still a trend, still very popular, still all over the stores and I love it! At the moment, I don’t own any navy and white handbags but I would love to own one! Some think the colors look bland together but I think they look stunning together!
I haven’t purchased a new handbag since 2011 and I’m literally dying to get one. At the moment, I’m in acting school and trying to save as much as I can for my upcoming move next year. Therefore, a new handbag isn’t really in my budget at the moment but I love looking on the internet for ones I would purchase if I could. It’s kind of torturous but I know one day that I’ll have a closet like Carrie Bradshaw. Hey, a girl can dream right? I’ll just have a wishlist in the meantime that continues to grow, everyday.
When you watch a tv show do you call out when you see a bag that you know? If you answered yes, you’re not alone, I to am guilty of this from time to time. One favorite of mine that was recently spotted on the arm of Countess LuAnn from the Real Housewives of New York is the Katherine Kwei Donna Satchel. After seeing this picture it brings back memories of my Katherine Kwei Donna Satchel (same bag) that I sold on eBay *kicking myself*
