I’m really extremely excited right now and I just have to share! Finally after two long years my cellphone contract is set for renewal, which means it’s time for a new phone. Yeayyyy! Obviously this time around I’m going with an iPhone! I had the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation iPhone but a couple years ago I was going through some sortof anti-iphone stage. Everyone had one, plus I fell in love with the HTC Inspire – huge screen and took awesome photos. But that’s not enough to keep me. I miss not being able to buy cute and stylish designer phone cases, plus there are quite a few apps that I’m missing out on.
So right this very moment I’m sitting here blogging about iPhone Cases while waiting for the delivery man to get here with my new Apple iPhone 5!
Here are a couple of my favorites, in no particular order.
Pierre Hardy Cube iPhone Sleeve. $110
Love the building block coated canvas print – Pierre Hardy’s style signature. One may say slightly M.C. Escher – ish?
Next month the sweet boyfriend and I will be on our way to the warm tropical beaches of Mexico for our yearly vacation. When it comes to traveling out of the country I usually keep it pretty basic, leaving the Louis Vuitton keepall‘s at home. To me the traveling experience of going internationally (south of the boarder) is much different than traveling domestically for many reasons – Not so much traveling to Mexico, but on the way home I feel like they check your bags every 10 minutes, plus (I know this may sound a little snobby of me) I don’t like it when people with dirty oily hands touch my new-ish, un-aged, still light Louis Vuitton leather. Plus there’s always the fear of a completely booked plane and the chance than my bag will be randomly selected to be placed with the checked luggage or stuffed in one of the overly crowded compartments and someones soda bottle exploding (never happened to me before but I’ve seen this happen). So for those reasons alone, I reserve my Louis Vuitton luggage for domestic travels, first class flights or road trips.
It is still cold here. I’m sorry, but I am really ready for Spring to get here. Oh well, I suppose it is warm somewhere. So if you have a bad case of Spring Fever like me, then perhaps you are thinking of heading some place warm and sunny for a little bit. Whatever you do though, don’t opt for a cruise! Haha! A nice sandy beach wouldn’t feel too bad right now though. Only problem is it isn’t quite beach tote season yet. So finding something nice and versatile might be a little tricky right now. Don’t worry though, I have found an awesome piece that would fit the bill perfectly! Introducing the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Escape Bag!
Who says dogs are man’s best friend? I will have you know that I love my dog very much! She’s my spoiled rotten little brat, but she is also my best friend. I’m sure a lot of you ladies will agree with me when I say a dog is a girl’s best friend too! If you have a pup that you adore, then perhaps you would like a handbag that shows it. Meet the Dolce & Gabbana Bulldog Tapestry Bag!
Dolce and Gabbana has not been on my radar lately. It seems like more and more pieces from this designer have been popping up though. So I thought perhaps it was time to take a closer look. What I found was quite surprising! Don’t worry, it was the pleasant kind of surprise. The bags are a lot more beautiful than I remember them being. Perhaps Dolce and Gabbana was going through a phase before? All I know is that I like what I see now! One piece that particularly caught my eye is the Dolce and Gabbana Miss Sicily Crocheted Straw Handbag!
Not all spring florals are vibrant and vivid. Dolce & Gabbana presents an array of florals in lace this season in bold black. Lace has always been one of my favorite lightweight fabrics and we’ll see more of this whimsical trend this year.
Wonderful florals in neutral shades seem to hold each season, and when enclosing handbags, they’re a hit among women of all ages. Check out this black and cream creation by the Italian House Dolce & Gabbana.
This oversized artistic tote will take out any typical solid black handbag. Lined in lush lace and trimmed in smooth lambskin leather, this accessory is well suited for office wear to evening nights out.
Dress this up or pair with blouse and jeans as black lace is easily adaptable and a fashion must have, it’s visible that the ‘Miss Alma Lace’ will instantly glam up any boring outfit. Most lace accessories come in smaller accessories, but this oversized tote will come handy to your daily essentials and more.
If you saw the July cover of Bazaar with Miss Britney Spears posing in an amazing Dolce & Gabbana star covered gown, you will know why this bag caught my attention. That gown is striking for a cover shot, but highly impractical for almost anything but that. Here is an opportunity to own a little bit of that feeling and have some fun with it!
How many black clutches do you own? If the answer is none, this bag is NOT for you. Every girl needs at least one basic black clutch in her closet. It’s a go to for evening when the fun ones just don’t work with your outfit. Of course if you have one already and maybe some sparkly ones as well, this might be the bag for you! It’s whimsical and striking. A conversation starter!
Spring is here and soon Summer will be vastly approaching us. Even though I live close to the beach I hardly go. The sand annoys me like there is no tomorrow. I absolutely hate when it gets stuck to my skin then just gets all over my car. What I hate more is when all the stuff I bring to the beach, especially my essentials, has sand all over them. This is inevitable though since most beach bags have holes in them to “try” to make the sand fall out.
When I discovered the Dolce & Gabbana “Black & White” Beach Bag I Immediately thought it was the greatest beach bag ever designed. No, it can’t keep the sand out but it sure does keep you more organized. Most beach bags are over-sized and you just throw everything you own in them. With this bag everything is labeled, which makes it a little bit easier to keep the sand out. If everything has it’s own little compartment you take it out and put it back in when you’re down with it.
Some people say that denim bags are making a comeback this season, but this tote takes off in its own direction. Rather than following the popular idea of using just denim fabric, this label actually created this piece from recycled denims, which to me resembles a do-it-yourself project rather than a high-end designer handbag.
I mean, it’s not anything new and has been done before, it’s just always interesting to see…
