The Diane von Furstenberg On the Go Tote is the newest silhouette added to the DvF fashion house and I am loving it down to the stitch. The functional design and stylish print are a match made in purse heaven.
By the way, what do you guys think of Diane’s new Lip Logo? I think it looks great on the logo tag, but honestly I would probably remove it – the tote already says “Diane von Furstenberg” on the front. Is there really a need for double DvF labeling? Besides that minuscule detail I’m greatly in love with this bag. I love the black and white print. Anyone else crazily obsessing with the black and white trend happening right now? And most important, the design of the bag is completely functional! The main compartment of the tote features a magnetic-snap top, when opened reveals a spacious interior with 4 pockets and a pen slot. Wait, that’s not all this bag has to offer. As you can see from the picture above, there are more pockets conveniently located around the exterior radius of the bag. There are four more magnetic pockets on all sides of the bag. This is the ultimate day bag!
Baby pink and mint are my favorite colors at the moment. By themselves they are gorgeous but when the two colors are put together they make one stunning duo. I just bought an iPad mini case that has a baby pink cover but the inside is mint. It’s gorgeous and I’m obsessed with it. With that said, any accessory that comes remotely close to featuring these two colors I’m instantly in love with. The Diane von Furstenberg “Tonda” Raffia Clutch is a fine example of this. The colors aren’t 100% the same but boy do they look beautiful together! This is by far the prettiest clutch I’ve seen so far in 2013 and I wouldn’t mind owning it!
I know the Neiman Marcus + Target Holiday Collection was not a hit. If it was the collection wouldn’t have been marked down to 70% off. However, I was absolutely obsessed with the collection. I was in love with the Alice + Olivia black and white suitcase but I did wait for it to hit 70% off before buying it. To my surprise, it was great quality and I the bags it came with inside were so cute! Black and white are two of my favorite colors but now I’ve been trying to find other bags that match the suitcase so I can travel in matching style!
As the year comes to an end, we reflect back on our fashion favorites of 2012. With ever changing trends and styles, there were many inspiring designers, both known and new, who did superb jobs in presenting artistic elegance and beauty to the fashion world. If I’d have to recognize just one fashion trendsetter who in my opinion, has truly emerged within the past couple of seasons, I’d have to say that’s Diane von Furstenberg.
The Belgian designer has always been an influential figure in women’s fashion. Her retrospective designs for the modern women influences an audience of diverse generations. I’ve always admired her iconic designs, colorful patterns and her feminine works, but during these past seasons, we’ve witnessed bolder and fun trendsetters that have created some of the best pieces yet! Throughout the year we definitely digged the adorable and extra affordable canvas totes that arrived in different patterns and hues.
Got a working gals name on your gifting list? Whether it’s a mother, sibling, daughter or yourself; if climbing the corporate ladder is an ultimate goal, along with brains and skills come the attire and its fashion staples. We’ve picked out four great accessories that’ll complete any chic office style, each vary in composition and price range.
The 440 Top Handle by Diane von Furstenberg makes a great pick for the gal who would appreciate professionalism with much room ($645). This polished bag arrives oversized and is capable of holding medium sized gadgets comfortably.
If you like the DvF look but prefer something more petite, Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Flipping Dots Tote carries the similar sophisticated concept ($528). Oversized dots play up this satchel and its horizontal silhouette gives this piece a dramatic balance.

This is a 2 in 1 bag here people. Clean lines, universal style plus the function make this the ultimate go-to work tote. How I see it: the tote is the perfect size for all your daily necessities (wallet, ipad, laptop, etc) and the small clutch makes it super easy to run quick errands or dash to grab lunch or a coffee. Seriously, who wants to carry a fullsized tote on those missions?

In a ultra high gloss! In sunshine Senape, purplish Wineberry, and my favorite Lapis (above) for it’s universal season-less appeal. Also available in Lace for about $20 more which I’m surprised to find in the sale section. Lace is huge right now, especially during the Winter season. It’s one of those re-occurring trends.

It’s no secret that I love weird stuff especially when it comes to fashion. I’m not out there and over the edge like Lady Gaga but I definitely like things that are show stoppers. Think about celebrities, the only ones that ever get reported on fashion wise are the ones that wear something that is eye catching. After every award show they talk about the celebrities that carried/wore something that was bad or great. If they didn’t wear or carry something that caused discussion they totally get dismissed. I’m telling you, fashion that causes a tiny bit of stir always gets a win in my book!
Evening bags are my favorite accessory when it comes to fashion. If I didn’t look silly, I would probably carry around an evening bag all day long if I could. To me, they are classy, sophisticated and definitely stunning. I would personally dress up everyday at the crack of dawn if people wouldn’t think I was crazy. I love looking glamorous and having a stunning evening bag to go with my ensemble.
Diane von Furstenberg never disappoints when it comes to elegance. Everything she designs is stunning and I’m now in love with the “Tiffany” Sphere Clutch. Like I state over and over again, black and gold look amazing together! The colors look so flashy together and make anything fashion wise look gorgeous!
