Happy St Patrick’s Day
I admit, I do not have a green bag for St. Patricks Day. *gasps* Although if I planned ahead a little bit better, I would probably be rocking one of the beauties below. St. Pattys Day kinda just crept up on me this year.
So here, pictured below are my favorite green bags of the season.
It’s “Sale Time” over at Bloomingdales! I just got back from rummaging through the online department store, and I noticed they updated their sale section that I mentioned last week. Adding a bunch of new styles from designers like Be&D, Berin, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, the list goes on. Not limited to handbags either. Evening dresses, weekend wear, denims, tanks, accessories, shoes and more.
If you live in the New York area there’s going to be a Bulga planted in your neighborhood.
If you wanna be there on the opening day to check out the latest buttery soft bags and purses, stop off at 214 west 39th Street Suite 1000A NY on Wednesday July 15th.
Hours: open weekdays 10: am until 7: pm and Thursday from 11: am until 8: pm
The store will offer a range of merchandise from small leather goods to special bags, that will be sold exclusively at the company store. All gift purchases will be wrapped and shipped at Bulga’s expense and dropped off same day (if purchased in New York, of course).

Bulga Essex Bag
Judging from everyone’s reaction to the last time I talked about things I did in my childhood days, I’m guessing that either I was weird or everyone else was very boring. I can’t believe nobody had origami frog competitions in grade school. Oh well, perhaps not everyone had teachers that were as creative as mine. The problem now is that I keep spotting bags that remind me of things I did when I was a kid. Don’t believe me? Take this Bugla Essex Tote for example. Unfortunately, yes, I was one of those kids that tie-dyed her own T-shirts. But this bag doesn’t just remind me of that. Just looking at the picture, I am also reminded of those color changing T-shirts that would turn white when they got hot. Does anyone remember those? And although I thought tie-dying was the bee’s knees back then, you can safely assume that I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing this bag now. Maybe, just maybe, I could see this bag being used as a beach bag. But an everyday handbag? No thank you! Tie-dye might have been cool on T-shirts at one time, but I don’t recall it ever being cool on handbags (with, perhaps, the exception of a really nifty backpack).
The Bugla Essex Tote is available in Tulip (Hot Pink) or Jessi (Tan) tie-dye denim. It measures 15″ x 10.5″ x 6″ and it retails for a shameful $595. If you tie-dye just happens to be your thing, you can pick one of these babies up at shopbop

Bulga Silver ‘Candie’ Clear Tote
So how do you Bagista’s feel over PVC clear totes? I wondered this to myself as I spotted this tote over at BlueFly (dot com). Meet the Silver ‘Candie’ Clear Tote by Bulga. Personally, I’m not a fan of the whole clear tote concept, but I don’t despise the trend either. I’m just not one to pull off a clear tote; I guess it’s a privacy issue of mine, and my insecurity with peoples’ abilities to looking (and stare) inside my bag. I feel like it’s a bit of an awkward feeling since I find my handbags’ belongings a bit personal… sometimes. Although there is no doubt in my mind that this Bulga would make a great beach tote, I can’t imagine taking this bag out on a shopping trip. Maybe if this bag had some type of design all over rather than it being so plain I would have something to look at and try to like. Instead, Bulga disappointed moi with such a plain and pricey pvc tote. I don’t know how you ladies feel, but I find its retail value of $462 to be outrageous. Even its sale price of $249.30 is a bit foolish for such a simple tote in my opinion. Do any of you ladies agree, or do I stand-alone?

Designer Purse Deal: Bulga Slouchy Handbag
Remember the all-vinyl clear Bulga tote that retailed for a $400 but looked more like a cheap non-designer purse you would find in the clearance bin at macys? Well I just discovered it’s long lost sister, the all leather with 14-karat yellow gold-plated hardware Slouchy Tote. I like this bag so much more than the clear version. It looks durable, long-lasting and doesn’t look as cheap and plastic-ey as the all-vinyl version.

The Bulga Clear Vinyl Tote
It is a rare occasion for me to be blown away by a bag produced from the brand Bulga. Their bags are often boring in design and lack appeal. Which brings me to this bag, the clear pvc plastic Bulga Tote. The all-vinyl purse doesn’t show style or quality, or even some mark or characteristic that would show it’s by Bulga. It’s just a plain plastic tote that looks like you got from Target or something. Also summer is over. Why would you sport a clear plastic tote during the fall-winter season? That’s kind of a summer thing. I say toss in the junk bin. What do you guys think?
There is also this same bag for a couple hundred more in patent leather (brown or tan). Also at ShopBop.

Bulga | Tassel Hobo Handbag | View!
The designer behind the designer label Bulga (Natalia Konovalova) first stepped into the fashion world working as a model. The name for the line was originally Kono Valova but went under a name change because it didn’t blend with her inspiration behind the line. Natalia recounts the day when she changed the name from Kono Valova to Bulga – “one day out of the blue while I was casually glancing over an antique globe. I was looking at all the old names for towns in my country and my finger came down on a town called ‘Bulga’. After I looked it up I literally fell out of my chair; the English translation of Latin word ‘bulga’ is leather bag!”
Pictured above is the Bulga hobo in the (exclusive to Barney’s) color grey leather whipstitch detailing and topped off with a dangling thin strapped tassel.
Side note: The bigger Bulga Triple Zipper Hobo in the same exclusive color grey is available at Barneys – for the equal price of $695. go!
