Lately, I’ve been carrying bags that are on the smaller side. Do I like smaller bags? No, but for being an incredibly unorganized person it keeps me more neat and tidy. Whenever I carry a larger bag, within 2 days it looks like World War III took place inside so it’s better for me to stick to the smaller ones. However, I still have appreciation for large handbags especially ones that are reasonably priced!
I may be turning into a classy fashionista but I will always have a soft spot for edgy fashion. The whole rocker chick look is so trendy and fashionable looking. Wearing leggings, a hot top, fierce heels and a gorgeous black leather bag with gold hardware will always be my outfit of choice. Of course though, as you grow older you have to step up your fashion game a notch and dress appropriate to your age. Classy it is, but sometimes I will rock my edgy look.
As stated on their brand site, 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s focus is providing beautiful everyday classics with touches of madness resulting in cool, easy chic styles for both men and women. The Crossbody Camera bag is exactly that: cool and chic. However, I don’t see any madness to it at all!
A perfect little bag for the fashionable woman on the go. Luxurious supple lambskin is complemented by touches of simple gold hardware for maximum impact. And the color…wow! A beautiful rich sapphire shade that is just this side of royal purple. It’s the perfect color to compliment your Fall wardrobe.
Since 1867 the House of Lanvin has been known for chic sophistication. Fashion appreicated by fashion lovers, not necessarily something for the masses, but something special. For Lanvin’s designer, Alber Ebaz, beauty and comfort go hand in hand. That is what I see in the luxurious, easy and multi-functional Dear Danae Cabas Tote.
Need a bag for day, travel and casual evenings? This one will take you from 7 a.m. to midnight. Sure, it’s surprisingly clever to have a detachable clutch that provides extra functionality as well as subtle design detail. It is deftly superior in the design of a foldover bag that looks great…. well, folded over as well as full-size. I can imagine this being the perfect trip bag. Moderate size for the flight out, super size to handle the extra items I bought that don’t fit in my luggage and a cute little clutch for quick errands or casual evenings. The TSA will never know you actually have three bags instead of the allowed one!
Anytime I come across a black leather handbag that has gold hardware, I scream and immediately want it. I just think the combination of black leather and gold hardware are so beautiful together and incredibly stylish. The two colors combined make a handbag more flashy and give you the ability to carry it around day or night.
I instantly fell in love with the Foley + Corinna “Lady City” Tote. It’s so edgy looking and totally my style. This is definitely the type of handbag I would use all year round and almost everyday. It’s not too casual and not to fancy to be able to use it pretty much whenever you want.
If you saw the July cover of Bazaar with Miss Britney Spears posing in an amazing Dolce & Gabbana star covered gown, you will know why this bag caught my attention. That gown is striking for a cover shot, but highly impractical for almost anything but that. Here is an opportunity to own a little bit of that feeling and have some fun with it!
How many black clutches do you own? If the answer is none, this bag is NOT for you. Every girl needs at least one basic black clutch in her closet. It’s a go to for evening when the fun ones just don’t work with your outfit. Of course if you have one already and maybe some sparkly ones as well, this might be the bag for you! It’s whimsical and striking. A conversation starter!
The Burberry Prorsum collections have provided us with some edgy British chic in trench coats with a twist, spiked and over-sized plaids and studs, bold design elements and heels all with a nod to the British classics. This adorable clutch is no exception to the over-the-top styling. While we’re in the midst of a sweltering summer and white is perfectly fine to carry, this bag ships AFTER Labor Day. If the proper, etiquette abiding, tea-loving English say it’s okay to carry white in the Fall, then it really must be true!
In April, I wrote a blog about the Rebecca Minkoff “Trompe l’oeil” Morning After Bag. It’s probably in my top 10 favorite Rebecca Minkoff bags of all time. It matches my wardrobe perfectly and I’m so upset I wasn’t able to get my hands on one. “You win some, you lose some”, is the saying right?
Well to my luck, my blog caught the eye of Rebecca Minkoff’s team! They were very appreciative of my post that they sent me the, “Three-Zip Rocker” Crossbody Bag in red! I was in total shock! I couldn’t believe it. It’s just as pretty as it is in person and the color is gorgeous.
