My favorite colors at the moment are mint and pink or anything that’s pretty close to the colors too. As I’ve written non-stop in previous blogs, my favorite color combination is black and gold. Anything fashion wise that’s black and gold is always flashy and gorgeous looking. Now my second favorite color combination is mint and pink. The colors are so light, soft and look beautiful together! If you’re a girly girl like me, you might just love the two colors together too!
With the holidays fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about gift ideas for that special bagista in your life. It is certainly no secret that bagistas love their handbags. But bagistas love other accessories too! So if your budget doesn’t permit the purchase of a gorgeous handbag, there are plenty of other options available. For example, who doesn’t like cool tech accessories? Bagistas love tech accessories just as much as the next gal, perhaps even more! So here are some gift ideas to help her jazz up her smartphone or other tech device.

Moschino Teddy Bear iPhone Holder – $75
Who doesn’t like a sweet teddy bear? This silicone iPhone holder features a three-dimensional teddy bear design. He’s soft and smooth to the touch, plus he has a sweet little bow around his neck.
I’m a hopeless romantic that loves fashion and anytime I see anything in the fashion world that’s related to love I melt. I consider myself a stylish modern day hippie. I’m a firm believer that there is too much hate and negativity in this world and that we should spread peace and love as much as we can. What better way to spread some love than carrying a bag that says it in big letters? I know whenever I see someone that has a shirt or bag that says something I’m intrigued and I find myself reading it. Do you?
The “Love” Moschino Shopper is a perfect example of a fashionable accessory that’s out there to spread some love. Think about it, who isn’t going to read your bad when you’re walking right next to them. It’s kind of inevitable when you have women spelling out love on a bag. It can kind of act as a daily reminder, if you’re having a bad day, to just spread and feel love. Cheesy I know, but that’s the way I think.
When I ran into Moschino’s white canvas signature bag, the first thought that came through my mind was that I’ve seen colorful signature handbags before. I don’t know who can claim to be the originator of the vibrant logo idea, but obviously, the trend keeps on going. So these two pieces by two different Houses are not absolutely identical, but you can’t miss the close resemblance they share; they’re like cousins!
Everybody is doing their own avant garde interpretation of the classic spiral notebook clutch. First it was Alexander Wang with the leather bound Amber, then Moschino with the My Secret Diary inscribed notebook, then most recently Barneys New York came out with their own interpretation.
All the bags have that one feature in common, the spiral detail. But what’s so different about each design? There are a few difference which makes each bag their own…
My favorite of the bunch is the Alexander Wang Amber. It actually just came out in the gray and cream leather python-print (above). To me, between all the other versions this one most closely resembles a spiral notebook, and it’s pure fabulous. Available at nap for $625
