Bling! Bling! Bling!
Wow, I was just blown away by my most recent email from Saks Fifth Avenue
We started seeing the sequin trend coming on strong last year, I’d say it has come to full fruition in the latest incarnations by D&G!
Dolce & Gabbana is known for statement making designs featuring animal prints, sequins and satin. This line is usually not for the timid! If you are looking for a red carpet ready evening handbag that will turn you into the center of attention, look no further. Dolce & Gabana’s new collection is full of showstoppers!
You could always make the conservative choice and select a basic black evening bag that will work with practically everything you, own. But what fun is that? A true fashionista needs a little bit of variety! A girl needs to and should get attention!
What do you think about a bag within a bag? Might sound like nonsense to some, or like the latest and trendiest style to hit the purse world to others. Although Dolce & Gabbana isn’t the first house to present the bag-in-bag style, do meet their version, the ‘Miss Angie’ Shopper, new to their 2010 Cruise Collection.
I can see how you can sway either way of giving this a thumbs up or thumbs down. You might see this as one elegant and feminine shopper, or simply an expensive interpretation of a drawstring laundry bag within a flowery tote bag. From a distance, it might be difficult to distinguish that the material of choice is in fact leather throughout, from the clinched drawstrings to the exterior shopper.
Fergie spotted outside her New York City hotel earlier today looking effortlessly NY-Chic.
The fergster dressed in all black paired her L’Wren Scott jeans with an embellished jacket and finished the look with oversized sunnies (a must right?), very fabulous studded booties and the Dolce & Gabbana ‘Miss Sicily’ Leather Tote.
The Miss Sicily is pretty much one of the most amazing bags out by the design team. The timelessly stylish bag features classic gold-tone hardware, shiny leather, spacious interior with two interior compartments, and an optional shoulder strap.

I currently don’t own any Dolce & Gabbana handbags, but I’ve always loved them. Dolce & Gabbana handbags are always classy, fabulous, and very expensive.
This bag is a great everyday, sophisticated bag. I could totally envision a doctor, lawyer, or some type of business woman carrying this bag around. To me, this bag screams professional. I would expect to see this bag on a desk in an office, or having a woman in a suit holding it.
At the same time though, I can see a fashionista sporting this bag around too. This is a bag that I could see myself using when I’m well put together, or put a lot of thought into my outfit. To me, this bag is way too fancy looking to go with the whole casual look but of course that’s just my opinion.
The only thing I don’t like about this bag is the front flap closure. By looking at this bag with that type of handle, I would of thought it opened and closed at the top. Having a flap seems odd to me for this type of bag. The bag is on the small side, so why not have it open on the top for easier access? The bigger version of this bag does open on the top, which seems like the smarter way to open and close this bag. Other than that, this is one fabulous bag!
The Dolce & Gabbana “Miss Sicily Leather Bag” can be purchased at Nordstrom for $1,895. The price is very high, but I wouldn’t expect any less from Dolce & Gabbana. Most Dolce & Gabbana bags are expensive, since they are made in Italy. Expensive or not, the bag is beautiful!

Take a look at the scariest Spice Girl from all; its Melanie Brown chitchatting on her phone and looking extra daring and fierce on a day out in town. It looks like a pretty sunny day out; I can only imagine how hot she must have been in those tights and her gorgeous Louboutin boots. Although that fluorescent yellow vest she has on does look pretty comfy and cool. Scary Spice looks really great flaunting those curves, and most importantly, I applaud her ability to pull off that leopard print handbag of hers. Animal prints can get tricky as you don’t want to appear cheap and tacky, but I’d say Mel B. did just fine. For the past seasons and continuing almost every designer under the sun has created their own interpretation of safari chick handbags that vary in different animal prints. Mel B happened to pick the Leopard Print bowler by Dolce & Gabbana collection. This wild bag features dyed calf hair, shiny brown patent leather handles, an additional shoulder strap, pleats and a shiny logo plate, as if the bag lacked character.
If you like Scary Spices’ fun and funky look, you can start with the bag by shopping Dolce & Gabbana over at: SaksFifthAvenue
I currently own a Louis Vuitton Wallet, but I can very much appreciate a beautiful wallet. Lately, I’ve been looking at wallets in hopes to find another one just as beautiful as my Louis Vuitton one to purchase. Nothing is as classic as a Louis Vuitton wallet, but I do agree that not only does a fashionista need “bag” variety they also need “wallet” variety.
It takes a lot for me to like wallet. Something either needs to be unique about the wallet, or it just needs to be plain beautiful. When I came across the Dolce & Gabbana “Lock” Wallet, as I like to call it, I was quite impressed. It was fairly simple, but yet the little lock in front of the wallet made it look that much more cuter and stylish.
What is cool about a wallet like this, is that you really could wear it two different ways. I would personally use this as a wallet to throw in my purse, but some people like to use stylish wallets as if they were a clutch. Think about it, if you have nothing to bring with you other than money or some credit cards then carrying a wallet like a clutch wouldn’t seem like a bad idea. I could never go anywhere without a cell phone, but if you can live without a cell phone, and lip gloss then carrying around a stunning wallet would probably be ideal for you.
The padlock really makes this wallet look unique to me, and that’s not even the coolest part. The top zip closure has an attached leather strap and keyring, so that you can actually “lock” the wallet up. Not very ideal, but definitely a cute little feature to the wallet.
The Dolce & Gabbana “Lock” Wallet can be purchased at Zappos for $467.20, which I consider to be a great price for a high end designer wallet. Get yours before they are all gone!
