I have a thing for Chinese food. I used to go to this same place and order the exact same thing every time. My husband thought I was weird. But hey, if you like something then what’s wrong with ordering it every time? I really miss that place. Oddly enough though, the food wasn’t my favorite part. My favorite part, of course, was the fortune cookies! I especially liked the fortune I received that said I would inherit a lot of money. Now if only it had come true! Haha!
It’s always fun to have those different and unique bags in your handbag collection. You may not use them much but they sure come in handy for the right outfit, party or event. The Tulu “Katie” Kisslock Clutch is definitely one of those bags. At first glance, I had thought it was by Betsey Johnson. With the bow and the colors, it screamed Betsey Johnson to me so it was nice to see another designers name in the description.
Does anyone remember the Kate Spade New York Journal Newspaper Clutch? The one that looked like a rolled up newspaper? It has been a little while since it was seen in the pages of fashion magazines. I remember the short-lived frenzy. Everyone seemed to want it, but it was sold out everywhere. Shortly thereafter, Kate Spade produced a variety of book clutches. Each accordion-style framed clutch depicted the designer’s own interpretation of some classic novels’ book covers. Cute? Yes! But it seems Kate Spade was not the first to produce a series of clutches designed to look like books. Olympia Le-Tan has been producing dust jacket-inspired clutches since 2009.
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!
When I was in grade school, we were encouraged to read as many books as we could. We kept track of how many books we had read by placing stars under our names on a bulletin board. I can’t remember how many books you had to read in order to get a very special reward, but I remember it seemed like a lot! What was the special reward, you ask? The opportunity to take a ride in a real hot air balloon! Gosh, I can remember waiting FOREVER for the day I would get to ride in that balloon. And when that day finally came, I was practically bursting with excitement. I remember waiting in line to get into the basket and then I remember climbing into the basket! And then we went a whole 20 feet up into the air before coming back down… Hmm, imagine my disappointment.
You’re probably wondering by now what the heck this story has to do with the bag you see pictured here. It’s called the Mini for Many Sailor Bag and it was this childhood memory that popped into my head the second I laid eyes on it.
What’s black and white and red all over? Okay okay, bad joke! I know! But I do have a bag here that is black and white. And instead of being a zebra with a sunburn, this interesting looking piece resembles more a zebra with some killer tattoos! It’s called the Swash “Zebra Scarf” Silk Crepe de Chine Bag and it is new to Net-A-Porter!

Part of ShopBop’s One by collection, I Love Binetti is known for its innovative and thought-provoking designs. The collection is made up of standout pieces that were handpicked because they represent the top of their categories (clothing, handbags, shoes, etc). ShopBop says you should expect to see a broad selection of unique products from established and rising talents alike. Well I can certainly say that this I Love Binetti Amaca Bag is unique, so I suppose it is no surprise that ShopBop decided to feature it in their One by collection.
