I’m color obsessed at the moment and I can’t get enough of bright beautiful colors! I was never like that so this is a huge stretch and change for me but I have to say I like it. I’ve been on the hunt for a new handbag lately and when I came across the Gucci “Bright Bit” Handbag Collection my mouth dropped. First and foremost, I love the whole style of the bag. It’s simple and extremely classy. What I love the most about this bag, is that unless you are a fashion lover you would have no idea this bag was Gucci. The gold hardware compliments the bag well and it’s by far one of the prettiest handbags I’ve seen this year.
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?
I’ve never been shy about expressing my dislike for handbags that are completely covered with a designers logo. It’s a bit showy to me, almost like a walking advertisement. But to each their own, right? It has always been my opinion that a quality made leather handbag stands levels above a canvas fabric signature print purse. So with that being said, I tend to go for timeless handbags without having the logo plastered all over the exterior. However there are a couple bags out there that I would make an exception for, one of those bags being the Gucci Cellarius Guccisima Sukey Bag.
Ever curious what other bags people are buying? Here are a couple of hot tamales that flew off store shelves this week from department store Neiman Marcus!
Prada Saffiano Lux Tote is the ultimate work tote! Couple years ago when I was on the hunt for a work tote I was bouncing back and forth between purchasing the Chanel Cerf and the classic black Prada Saffiano Lux tote. In the end I went the Chanel Cerf (partly because the Chanel SA was so sweet and helpful and) because I liked the softer, more relaxed style, whereas the Saffiano is all structure. Worth noting, this leather is incredibly durable! It will withstand daily wear. This bag is available in so many different colors, this one pictured here is the Caramel and retails for $1895.
Don’t you just love Gucci’s latest spring/summer 2013 evening accessories? This ultra sheer clutch was made for summer evening out on the town. The soft colored perspex frame is just the right size for the bare essentials, that you don’t mind having put on display. Measurements 8″W width x 4.7″ height x 2″ depth. What I love about the perplex design is that it’s not just a plain clear box, the design crafted in gem stone pattern.
What do you guys think of Gucci’s latest transparent clutch? Is it true that less is more?
I started this bag blog a little over 8 years ago and it’s interesting to me when I go back and read my old posts and see how trends and my opnions on bags have changed. Just last year around this time I was raving about how much I was obsessed with big handbags and the convenience of being able to carry everything I need for the day in one handbag (like an ipad, notepads, wallet, etc) however in recent months I’ve been favoring the smaller handbag look.
I love key chains especially ones by designers. I personally attach my keys to my Louis Vuitton Multicolor “Cles”. If you aren’t up to date with Louis Vuitton terminology, that basically means a change wallet. I’ve had it for almost ten years I believe, and it’s still in great condition. However, I always like to look at the other key chains designers make and I absolutely love the Gucci “Boston” Bag Keyfob! I don’t own a Gucci but I remember when I was on the hunt for one the “Boston” bag is exactly what I wanted! It reminded me of a Louis Vuitton “Speedy” just Gucci style.
