‘Tis the season for super cute bags and I think I’ve found the cutest one of all! Every time the holidays approach designers tend to bring out those stellar pieces that fashion lovers would want to get. Every holiday season I always find at least one thing I want! The most adorable bag I’ve seen this holiday season has to be the Tory Burch Bow Envelope Bag in red! Christmas is all about the color red and bows seem to be everywhere during this time of the year. What better way than to celebrate the holidays than with an accessory that matches the occasion.
There’s a couple of days left to wrap up your Christmas shopping! If you have yet to purchase for that special gal in your life but that designer handbag on her wish list seems out of your budget, why not opt for the reliable and handy comforts of a designer wristlet. There’s a large market for those adorable pouches that dangle off a band or bracelet, every fashion brand including couture designers seem to support the popular arm candy.
If you are completely stumped on what to get that special fashion lover in your life, Judith Leiber may have you covered! Judith Leiber does come with a big price tag but her bags are like no other! This Holiday season she has really outdone herself and the “Gift” Clutch may just be the ultimate gift ever. If you don’t know what to get someone that absolutely loves fashion give them a clutch that looks like a gift! You wouldn’t even have to wrap it!
The holiday season is here! The malls are packed with holiday shoppers looking for those perfect gifts. Christmas songs are playing on the radio, over and over and OVER again. The smell of cookies and roasted almonds fills the air. But wait, I think we’re missing something here. With the holiday season comes all those holiday parties! What’s exciting about all those holiday parties is that they provide an opportunity to sport a sparkly clutch. So if that special someone on your shopping list loves her holiday parties, a sparkly new clutch might be just the gift to make her eyes light up. Below you will find some delightful choices, all from beloved designer Anya Hindmarch! Check them out!
Anya Hindmarch Twinkle Glitter Two Tone Clutch – $579
This yummy clutch is definitely all that glitters! I love the boxy shape and zipper closure. It reminds me of a makeup bag, only 1000% cuter. The PVC exterior is coated in glitter and the interior is lined with suede. The tassel provides a nice touch as well. This clutch comes in a variety of color combinations, but my favorite is the midnight/plum! Gorgeous!
About two years ago with did a “Secret Santa” exchange on The Bag Forum. The whole idea was quite fun. We were basically buying and receiving a gift from someone we’ve only exchanged words with online. One year our brilliant founder, Jennifer, got me! She knows I’m obsessed with the color pink and she got me a gorgeous Juicy Couture pouch in like a coral color. I was instantly in love. It was beautiful and big enough to fit all my makeup inside. I carried it everyday with me and even neglected my Louis Vuitton makeup pouch. It was adorable, girly, pink and oh-so-me.
I was a model for many years and I quit to turn to acting. I’m currently in acting school at the moment and as part of my studies I go on sets of T.V. shows or movies that are being filmed in the South Florida area. In May, I got a part in a very popular cable T.V. show. I was so excited and brought my makeup, makeup brushes and carried it all in my pink Juicy Couture pouch. After a 15 hours shift, I went home and went straight to bed because I was filming for another T.V. show the very next day. When I went to pack my bags in the morning, I noticed my pink Juicy Couture pouch with all my makeup brushes and makeup was gone. I don’t like to assume, but to this day it’s never been found and I hope someone out in the world is enjoying my bag. I was pretty heart broken and I haven’t found a pouch as big and pretty and my Juicy Couture one.
The holidays are just around the corner! I know this is supposed to be a happy time of year, but for some reason I have been feeling a little depressed. Perhaps it is because there is less sunlight right now. I always feel gloomy when it is gloomy outside. So I was thinking I needed a little spring added to my step. And what better way to do that than buying a new handbag? Now there is a holiday trend that I think will make the perfect fit. Any guesses? Nothing screams holiday spirit more than candy apple red! I have been wanting a new red handbag for a long time, so what better time than now? And if you happen to feel the same way I do, then I suggest you take a look at this trend. After all, red handbags are A LOT of fun! To get you started, check out the styles featured below!
Tory Burch Bow Envelope in Lobster Red. $275
Nothing is more beautiful than patent candy apple red. It is so slick and shiny, just like a candy apple. I absolutely love it on crossbody bags! The small size is perfect for such a flashy color. Plus I love the sweet little bow on this particular piece. It is just too cute!
“I was strolling down Madison Avenue, minding my own business, when this metallic pebbled leather bag started calling to me from the Tory Burch store. Guess it was meant to be,” said Oprah Winfrey.
The Holiday Porcelain Metallic Michelle Tote was chosen by Oprah as one of her favorite things to give this holiday season. Expected to be seen in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine and on the upcoming OWNtv special, Oprah’s Favorite Things.
I too am a pretty big fan of the Michelle tote. It’s the ultimate go-to tote. What I love most about the Michelle everyday carryall is it’s clean profile and spacious bucket size. Topping on the cake – the body of bag can easily be transformed with a few snaps into a trapezoidal shape.
I love all handbags but nothing beats an evening bag. I love looking glamorous and nothing finishes off a spectacular look than a gorgeous little bag. I’ve had the same evening bag, the Swarovski “Kiosque”, for years now and if I could I would use it everyday. It’s beautiful, like a piece of art, and it’s definitely one of those pieces that catches your eye. To me, evening bags should be covered in crystals and look more stunning than the regular handbag. They should be statement pieces and a great example of one if the Juicy Couture “Beaded” Minaudiere. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Juicy Couture come out with such an elegant bag, usually their bags are pretty hip looking, but I have to say I love it!
