Polka Dots have been everywhere this year. It’s a cute trend but I definitely couldn’t buy a ton of it. Even though I’m not a fan of carrying or wearing fur, I have to admit the Marc Jacobs ‘Too Hot To Handle’ Polka Dot Fur Bag is adorable. Anything I own that is polka dots is usually black and white. To me, black and white looks the best when it comes to polka dots and the two colors did justice for this bag.
This bag is perfect to carry around during these cooler months. When I see anything that’s fur I instantly think of the Fall and Winter seasons because fur is known to keep you warm. I remember walking down 5th Avenue in New York during the holiday season and tons of women would either have a fur coat or hat. I’m not fond of it but no one can deny how popular fur is.
Okay, so it is the middle of summer. This really is not the time to be discussing fur handbags. Ugh, they make me feel hot just looking at them. But I stumbled across a handbag that had me doing a double take today. Scratch that… a triple take! You just don’t come across a handbag like this every day. Check out the Blumarine Mongolian Fur Hobo!
The season for fur is just about gone, but animal prints in general will never go out of style. Animal prints are hot! There is just no other word to describe them. Animal prints are fun and funky, great for adding some flair to your everyday look. But here’s something you don’t see very often, mix and match animal print! Introducing the Christian Louboutin Carrie Animal Print Bag!
Fur was a hot item in the handbag world just a few months ago. Even now as we move into the new year, I’m still seeing some floating around here and there. It is an okay trend for the fall and winter months, but it isn’t something you can take with you as we move into spring. What about feathers though? They are fur-like in appearance, but they have a light and airy feeling to them. Are they really doable on a handbag? When I saw the Horse + Nail Winchester Bag, my curiosity was certainly sparked. I mean, you see feathers on all sorts of other accessories. How hard could feathers on a handbag be?
Feathers or Flowers? Regardless of which lively textile makes your favorite pick on an evening bag, Coach has you covered this season with two intense choices for the Holidays. This month sure went by fast and for the next couple of weeks the celebrations continue with family get-togethers, employer parties, Christmas gatherings, and New Years Eve.
Unfortunately, there are no enforced regulations on the amount of puff you can add to a handbag. Some fur pieces are absolutely striking and attractive, and then you have the ones that seem to be made out of the excess pelts from the good-looking ones. I always envisioned the brand of See by Chloe as the rebellious little sister of the French couture name of Chloe.
Here we go… yet another fur handbag that was introduced for this Fall season. With so many of them out there, you would think that this fur trend wasn’t really a trend. But as more and more designers jump on the bandwagon, I am seeing more and more styles that actually don’t look half bad. This coming from someone who really doesn’t care for fur on handbags! I never would have thought I would be saying such things just a few short months ago! Pictured here is a good example of what I have been talking about. Meet the Juicy Couture Ziegfield Vivian Bag!
No matter how much I want to deny it, fur seems to be holding as a trend for this coming Fall. Whether it’s real or faux, fur is literally everywhere. I can’t say I am a huge fan though. There’s just something about fur on handbags that doesn’t look right to me. But I did manage to stumble across one that isn’t too bad. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Party Rat Regine Bag!
Remember the Louis Vuitton Fox Tail Clip from Spring 2010? I remember the conversation that went on over at the Bag Forum. You either loved it or hated it, there really was no in between. So when I stumbled across the Elena Ghisellini Lara Raccoon Hobo, my thoughts went straight to that conversation that took place over a year and a half ago.
