Pretty crazy. And there is so much to choose from you guys. Shoes, lots of gorgeous clothing, amazing accessories and of course handbags. And since this is the Handbag Blog posted below are some of my favs:
Alexander McQueen Flower Silk Brocade Clutch $1,956.50 ($2,795)
Matthew Williamson Embellished Suede Clutch $1,130.50 ($1,615)
Floral motifs are everywhere this year. They are bright, muted, realistic, or abstract… there is a little bit of everything out there. You mostly see them on dresses, tops, and scarves. There are even floral print jeans! I have seen a few floral themed handbags too. The designs are usually printed, embroidered, or beaded. However, never before have I seen anything like Foley + Corinna’s take on the floral motif. Meet the Foley + Corinna Lotus Clutch!
I know, I know… whenever I write about an Alexander McQueen clutch it is always the latest rendition of the infamous Skull Clutch. Well, not this time! I love the Alexander McQueen Skull Clutches just as much as the next girl, but they are not my only love from this particular designer. I also happen to have a thing for the De Manta! And why not? You can fit more stuff inside and there are some pretty snazzy designs. Right now, I am really loving the Alexander McQueen Dandelion De Manta Clutch!
Clematis can be seen growing all over the place around here. It is a favorite for adding a little color around a mailbox or along a wooden fence. This vine can grow pretty big though, I once saw someone who had it growing up an antennae tower in their backyard. There were pretty purple flowers blooming 20 feet above the ground! It is certainly an attractive plant. What I find curious is that it isn’t often the subject of floral printed handbags. That is why the Christopher Kane Clematis Clutch is so special!
The large and practical Roady by Yves Saint Laurent has received a noteworthy makeover this season. The French house has skipped the holiday festive and introduced shades of scarlet, whites, and classic black into an image of cheerful poppy floral prints.
This season, floral appliqué seemed to be pretty popular amongst many fashion designers but I tend to prefer prints to textile appliqué. The oversized poppy presentation highlights the sketch and prevents the look of your grandmothers’ floral curtains. I’m no botanist, and I was first introduced to the Poppy flower via Coach’s poppy collection several years back. Although I always admired the collection, I never acquired one of their pieces, who knows, this may be my chance to finally obtain a poppy-print handbag for once.
I remember when tying a scarf onto your handbag was all the rage! The perfect accessory to accent your perfect bag! But it seems like this trend has faded a little bit. I don’t see people tying scarves onto their handbags nearly as often. Is it not cool anymore? Personally, I really like the look! So if it’s not considered cool anymore, then it certainly should be! Maybe the look just needs a little updating. I think it was this idea that attracted me to the Maddalena Marconi Suede Top Handle Bag!
I have a little obsession with adorable small clutches. I’m starting to realize that it’s much easier to carry around a bag that’s smaller than a big bag. Larger handbags are already heavy as it is, then once you put all your fashionable accessories inside it weighs even more.
Florida is already hot and we are promised an even hotter summer. The last thing I want to do at the moment is carry around a handbag that acts as a weight. Having anything extra on you that’s heavy will just make you sweat more in this heat.
The Mar Y Sol “Gigi” Flower Clutch is the cutest clutch to have for the Summer months. It has that tropical look to it and it’s small enough to carry around with you everywhere without the hassle.
I’m 25, and I’m still incredibly girlie. I love anything pink, that’s fluffy, has rhinestones or even looks like a tutu. I have a fear of growing older. Not because I may age but more because getting older sometimes isn’t fun. I loved not having to worry about anything. Nowadays we have to worry about jobs, paychecks, how we are going to pay bills, etc. It’s not easy being a grownup! Seems like your mind is going a mile a minute when you are.
Whenever I see a bag that brings me back to my childhood I secretly want it. When I was little everything I owned was pink and I loved over the top girlie things. The Betsey Johnson “Rosey” Tulle Frame Bag is adorable and is definitely a bag I would of wanted when I was a child. It literally looks like something you would find in the toy store dress up isle.
I’m not sure if I would use this bag now but it sure is cute! I suppose if I had something pink for it to go with it would look pretty but considering my wardrobe is all black and white it’s pretty much useless in my collection. That doesn’t stop me from loving it though. I think what catches my eye the most about this bag is the rose design featured on the front! It reminds me of a ballerina’s big pink tutu!
March is almost here and as soon as we know it Summer will be here in full swing. Then again if you live in one of the hotter states, it may already feel like Summer to you! Living in Miami, it’s been in the 80′s and this is supposed to be Winter weather! Crazy, huh?
Being that it’s so hot in Florida, pretty much all year long, people flock here from all over to go to the beach. Funny, how when you live here you don’t even go? I’ve never been fond of water but it amazes me how many people from up North come here just to get away from the snow. I can’t say I blame them.
However, if I do go to the beach I always go with my best fashion foot forward. I love fashion to the point I live and breathe it so being stylish is always a must for me, even at the beach. I think designer bathing suits, sandals and beach bags are so cute. They make beach wear look a 100 times better, that’s for sure!
The See by Chloé “Zip File” Tote is an adorable bag for the beach. It’s bright, colorful and has a liner so that all your essentials aren’t visible to everyone at the beach. If you don’t mind everyone seeing what you have in your beach bag, the liner is removable. Comes in handy and makes the bag usable on and off the beach! I personally like the liner in especially if I decide to venture in the water and no one is there to guard my goods. Can’t trust wondering eyes especially in this economy! So I think the liner is a huge plus!
