Anytime I hear the name “Selma”, I automatically think of Selma Hayek. Selma Hayek has always been a Latina that’s extremely proud of her heritage and where she comes from. She really is one of the actresses that embraces her Mexican roots and that’s pretty admirable of her.
When I think of Mexican fashion I think of dresses featuring colorful designs and flowers. Mexican fashion is one of a kind and when you see it, you instantly familiarize with it. The Cleobella “Selma” Bag reminded me of a Spanish style looking bag. Perhaps, that’s exactly what Cleobella had in mind hence the name “Selma”.
If you love fringe, I have just the bag for you! The B-Low The Belt “Twiggy” Fringe Bag is perfect for the modern day fringe lover. You can’t even see the handbag itself because it is surrounded by fringe.
I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of anything featuring any type of fringe. I mean I guess a little bit of it is fun on a dress because every time you move it’s going to move with you. It’s also not common to see someone wearing fringe unless they are going to a theme party. Even though I’m not a big fan of fringe, I have to admit I’m kind of digging the “Twiggy” handbag primarily because it looks so incredibly different.
Rebecca Minkoff is still one of my favorite fashion designers and I love how she is always reinventing her handbags. It seems as if every week on Shop Bop I’m seeing a new design by her and I love it. Every single one of Minkoff’s handbags is always a hit. At the moment I’m absolutely loving the “Love Spell” Tri Zip Satchel. I feel like I’ve heard the name of the bag before but the style looks new to me. It kind of reminds me of a Balenciaga but better.
I have always loved Vanessa Hudgens’ style, especially when it comes to her handbag collection. Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Botkier, JJ Winters… you name it. What I like most is how she has a mix of pieces. Some are higher end, while others are more moderate. The styles vary quite a bit too. Most recently though, she seems to have found a new love — Cleobella handbags. There are pictures floating around with her carrying several different styles from this designer. So naturally, when I stumbled across this picture of Vanessa on a romantic date with Austin Butler, I assumed the bag she was carrying for the occasion was by Cleobella as well.
I’m not going to lie. I write about a lot of fringed handbags. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason I find fringe fascinating. The feeling of a mountain of fringe swinging back and forth with every move you make certainly puts a spring in your step. How could anyone possibly resist? So when I see a delightfully fringed handbag, I find it hard to resist writing about it! And here we go again, with yet another fringed bag. Meet the Motif 56 woven Josie Bag!
House of Harlow 1960 has been popping up everywhere lately. What started out as jewelry that expressed designer Nicole Richie’s love of fashion through many different eras has now blossomed to include other accessories such as shoes and handbags. Over time, House of Harlow 1960 has really started to grow on me. I love the eclectic mix of urban and bohemian style. Just take a look at the House of Harlow 1960 Hayden Clutch, for example, and you will see what I mean.
Ember Skye was popular with the celebrities for a little while last year. The brand was especially known for adorning the arms of Ashley Greene and Hayden Panettiere. Surprisingly though, I have only written about an Ember Skye handbag once. That was last June. So what has this designer been up to? I can safely say that Ember Skye still has a blatant love for fringe, as evidenced by the latest collection. What’s new, however, is the addition of some unusual adornments. Just take a look at the Ember Skye Kate Bag with Mixed Agate Accents!
Antik Batik is one of my favorite designers for boho-chic handbags. The brains behind the brand, Gabriella Cortese, was born in Italy and studied art in Paris. Her designs are reflection of her travels. She learned the art of Batik while in Bali and she was exposed to hand-dying/embroidery techniques while in India. The result is some exotic designs that still have some function. I’m always excited to see what’s new from this designer. So when I spotted the Antik Batik Hida Besace Bag, I had to swoop in for a closer look!
Fringe on handbags is one of those recurring trends. So much so, that it really can’t be called a trend anymore. What I find interesting is the variations that come with each passing season. What I mean is, there are trends within this trend. Check out the Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc and you will see what I mean.
