Tis’ the season to carry white handbags and I’ve been carrying my Louis Vuitton Multicolor Speedy non-stop this Spring. White handbags are always pretty too own but I won’t lie you have to watch them non-stop and be extra careful with them. They can get dirty pretty easily but take a wet towel to clean them and your good to go. My favorite white bag at the moment is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Clear ‘Clearly’ PVC Bag.
The bag is extremely sophisticated and classy which is definitely my style. I’ve never really been into handbags that are see through. In this economy it’s probably not a good idea to have the things in your purse exposed. However, I love this bag and I think it’s super cute. I would just be extra careful about what is seen in the bag. Obviously you would never want your money or any credit cards floating around the bag. I think if you keep everything concealed in the bag you’re good to go!
I can’t wait until my niece reaches pre-teen age and I can start buying her cute handbags like this Juicy Couture mini Gretchen.
I love every detail of this purse. It’s petite and the perfect size for a minimalist, crossbody strap for easy on the go fashion and comes in a very trendy bright neon animal print. I think this bag is ridiculously cute and I can totally see her wearing it!
The basics: This mini crossbody bag is made of coated canvas and accessorized with a tiny crystal adored turn-lock clasp. Measures in at 4″ height x 5″ length x 2″ depth with a 22″ strap drop – ideal for crossbody.
The 2 colors this bag is available in are neon Pink and Yellow leopard. My favorite is the pink. It’s a fun girly shade suitable for many spring / summers to come. The yellow leopard print is pretty lovely as well and such a hot trend for spring/ summer 2013.
The adorable Juicy Couture Mini Gretchen Bag retails for $128
On the go glamour!
I feel like I am going crazy. Well, just a little bit. I keep seeing transparent handbags popping up in random places. Forgive me if I am wrong here, but I thought transparent handbags were dead. I mean, they were never really that popular to begin with. They were a very brief trend, I guess you could say. So I don’t think anyone can really blame me for being surprised. The latest transparent handbag to cross my path is pictured here. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Clearly Bag!
The ultimate “Campus” cross-body bag is here. I finished up my schooling years ago from University and I can tell you the petite cross-body style is the ultimate essential. Think about it.. you have your school tote with all your books in it, which weighs on average at any given moment somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds. Why they don’t have download-able textbooks yet gets me. So when you want to run to the lavatory, go on a coffee run or go grab lunch, your not going to want to lug all that around. And sometimes a simple wallet isn’t going to do the trick. Have you ever tried carrying a drink carrier while trying to hold a wallet and an umbrella in the wind? (Yea, I live in Seattle) Not a fun experience. If I was still in school, the Frye Campus Mini Cross-body would be on the top of my list!
So Coachella starts in a couple weeks, right? I’m sure all of you who plan on going have your outfits and accessories planned out by now, but did you know Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent designed a bag especially for the music and art event? It’s called (obviously) the ‘Coachella.‘ A natural chocolate leather pouch (perfect size for the essentials) with cross body strap. Even if you aren’t planning on attending Coachella, this is one hot summer bag.
Spring is here, which can only mean pastel colors are in and I love it! Pink and mint are literally everywhere in the fashion world right now and I’m in heaven because of it. Pink and mint are two of my favorite colors so the more we see it the happier I am. I do wish I owned a mint handbag or another pink one. At the moment, I have the Christian Dior “Pochette” style bag from the Girly collection that debuted quite a while ago. It’s old, in great condition and I still love it but I would love a new pink bag! When I saw the Tory Burch Robinson “Spectator” Mini Cross Body Bag my mouth dropped. I absolutely adore Tory Burch and this bag is adorable! It’s little, pink and perfect for Spring.
Emilio Pucci has been off my radar lately. I don’t really know why. Perhaps I was just tired of seeing the same old “Pucci-print” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, the classic prints are nice. I think I just got a little bored with them since they seemed to be everywhere a little while back. But now it looks like Pucci is trying to do something different for a change. One piece that particularly caught my eye was the Emilio Pucci Dragon Embroidered Satchel!
When it comes to fashion I love classy, simple and sophisticated looking things. I’m the type of girl that always dresses up even if I’m just going to the grocery store. Some say I’m weird but is there anything wrong with wanting to be put together at all times? I love my hair and makeup to always be done and heels are a must. When I think of classy designer brands, Yves Saint Laurent immediately comes to mind. However, the fashion house changed their name so now it’s just Saint Laurent. I currently do now own anything by Saint Laurent but I sure do love the Y Ligne Mini Pochette Crossbody Bag.
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?
