I tend to like bigger handbags because a smaller bag can never fit all my junk in it. I put everything you can imagine in my purse. Makeup, wallets, phone charger, iPad Mini, flats and much more. I’m constantly on the go so I have to make sure that whatever bag I purchase has to be able to fit all my essentials in it. I normally only carry satchels and on occasion shoulder bags. When I saw the Tom Ford “Lock” Flat Fold-Over Convertible Clutch, I laughed. It is by far one of the most unique shaped shoulder bags I have ever seen! If I owned it I would probably use it folded over a majority of the time but using it as a shoulder bag definitely makes a statement! It literally looks like a big makeup pouch with a hole in it. It’s definitely the most oddly stunning piece I’ve seen in a while and I have to say I’m a fan of it.
‘Tis the season to be glam! Every year when New Years is about to approach we start seeing a lot of glitter, sequins and lots of shiny accessories in the fashion world. Today I was at the mall all day and pretty much every store had tons of dresses and shoes that were adorned in something gaudy. I’m not typically a fan of glitter or sequins because I feel you can’t use it much. However, there are some brands that do an impeccable job incorporating shining materials into fashion and Judith Leiber is amazing at it. I personally love crystals. It’s my thing but sometimes some designers just know how to make something shiny look fabulous and Judith Leiber is one of those designers.
I love bags that can be styled two different ways. At the moment, I can’t stop sporting a bag I bought at Michael Kors. It’s black leather, with gold hardware, can be carried as a clutch but it also has a gold chain so you can use it as a shoulder bag. It’s a tough economy and the more versatile a bag is the better! With the ability to carry it a variety ways you’re able to style it up with different outfits and at different times of the day.
The Maison Martin Margiela Leather “Fold Over” Tote is one of those bags. During the day you can use it as a casual tote but then you can fold it over and carry it as a clutch, which looks a little more stylish to me. I would personally would probably use it more folded over unless I was carrying something large and then I would have to use it as a tote.
Obsessed: Stella McCartney Alpaca Falabella Bag
The Stella McCartney Falabella has a cozy new coat for Fall and I’m totally loving it.
Stella McCartney’s latest version of the Falabella is dressed in a soft gray alpaca and trimmed with the classic Pewter metal chain trim. The interior is fully lined in faux suede.
When I was younger, I liked anything that looked sporty. I was the type of girl that loved to pretty much look like “Sporty Spice” from the Spice Girls. Gym pants and sneakers were my favorite thing to wear at one point. Thankfully I’m out of that stage but I still like handbags that are simple and have a sporty look to them. I use to love handbags that had logos or colors all over them but now I think simplicity is best. Simplicity keeps fashion looking classy but yet stylish.
Rebecca Minkoff has been reinventing her collection lately. I am loving all of the fresh, new styles! For her Spring 2012 Collection, she is bringing back fringe, stripes, and (you guessed it) studs! As you know, I am especially partial to studs on handbags. It’s no surprise then that my favorite new piece is the Rebecca Minkoff Moonstruck Hobo!
Whenever I think of Juicy Couture, I envision accessories that are pink and very girly looking. If you’ve ever been to the Juicy Couture store, I’m sure you would agree with me when I say it’s a bubble gum pink boutique! The store kind of remind me of what a room in Barbie’s house would look like. I don’t own very many things by Juicy Couture but I can tell you that each piece is, pink!
While browsing on Shop Bop I came across the Juicy Couture “Eleanor” Neoprene Bag. At first glance I would of never of thought it was by Juicy Couture because it doesn’t look like something the brand would typically design. In fact I was shocked to see it was designed by Juicy Couture. It wasn’t pink, bubbly or loud. I thought it was actually quite classy.
I don’t think I could ever stop loving my Foley + Corinna Mini City Tote! Not only is it one of my favorite colors (fuchsia), it is a versatile style that is perfect for everyday. Its unusual design seems to grab some attention around here as well. As much as I love my Mini City Tote though, I haven’t been paying too close attention to Foley + Corinna lately. So what has this designer been up to? What I found was pretty darn impressive… although I may be a bit partial considering I love my own bag from this designer so much! Here’s what I found though. Meet the Foley + Corinna Parcel Clutch!
