I can’t wait until my niece reaches pre-teen age and I can start buying her cute handbags like this Juicy Couture mini Gretchen.
I love every detail of this purse. It’s petite and the perfect size for a minimalist, crossbody strap for easy on the go fashion and comes in a very trendy bright neon animal print. I think this bag is ridiculously cute and I can totally see her wearing it!
The basics: This mini crossbody bag is made of coated canvas and accessorized with a tiny crystal adored turn-lock clasp. Measures in at 4″ height x 5″ length x 2″ depth with a 22″ strap drop – ideal for crossbody.
The 2 colors this bag is available in are neon Pink and Yellow leopard. My favorite is the pink. It’s a fun girly shade suitable for many spring / summers to come. The yellow leopard print is pretty lovely as well and such a hot trend for spring/ summer 2013.
The adorable Juicy Couture Mini Gretchen Bag retails for $128
On the go glamour!
Juicy Couture is one of those brands that has completely changed since when I first started my designer handbag obsession back in the early 2000′s. Back then Juicy Couture was known for their cutesy terry cloth bags, but since then they’ve added a bunch of new styles, with a more classic vibe.
Do you remember your first designer handbag? There is just something so special about that moment when you hold it in your hands for the first time. First awe, then this overwhelming giddiness. It doesn’t matter how old you are when it happens, the feeling is the same! Recently though, it seems younger and younger girls are chasing after their dream bag. So why not make the bagista in training in your life happy this holiday season? There are tons of adorable options out there that are perfect for teens, tweens, and even younger! Need a little help? No problem! Check out these great styles below. There is a little something for everyone!
Juicy Couture Louisa Crossbody Bag. $88
Is your bagista in training a girlie girl? Nothing would please her more than pink and sequins. Luckily, this delightful piece has both! I love the pretty metallic pink and rectangular sequins. The look reminds me of a 1920s flapper dress. Plus the crossbody strap is perfect for the girl on the go.
When Juicy Couture first came out the brand was instantly viewed as girly and cute. Everything was adorable and pink! I’ve always loved Juicy Couture but I never purchased any of their bags because I knew I would get sick of them. The bags looked little girlish to me but I continued to buy endless amounts of their clothes. However, I feel like Juicy Couture has stepped up their game lately, especially in the handbag department, and has become a little more grown up looking. The Juicy Couture Lana Luxe Rocks Bag is a far cry for the little girl style and is drop dead gorgeous!
With the holidays fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about gift ideas for that special bagista in your life. It is certainly no secret that bagistas love their handbags. But bagistas love other accessories too! So if your budget doesn’t permit the purchase of a gorgeous handbag, there are plenty of other options available. For example, who doesn’t like cool tech accessories? Bagistas love tech accessories just as much as the next gal, perhaps even more! So here are some gift ideas to help her jazz up her smartphone or other tech device.
Cutsie Tech Accessories
Moschino Teddy Bear iPhone Holder – $75
Who doesn’t like a sweet teddy bear? This silicone iPhone holder features a three-dimensional teddy bear design. He’s soft and smooth to the touch, plus he has a sweet little bow around his neck.
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!
If there is one place I love, it’s New York City. I’m in Acting school at the moment in Florida but New York was the city I got my start in. I did a lot of different type of modeling work in New York and it definitely gave me a wonderful start into the crazy Entertainment business. It made my portfolio look amazing and there isn’t one thing I love about the city. I love the ambiance, architecture, fashion, food and landmarks. New York is definitely a city that will be apart of me forever and I hope one day I’m able to live there at least part time.
Obsessed: Juicy Couture Trinity Backpack
I’m a few years past my college backpack toting days, but if this was available when I was in school, then you could bet this would be on my “back to school list”.
Rugged chic has never looked so good. The bag is dressed in a forest army green canvas with chocolate leather trim. Features include a magnetic snap secure flap (perfect for those rainy days!), while leather tassels accent the drawstring closure. Lots of pocket space too, which is huge plus – 3 on the exterior and 3 on the inside.
Ever since the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine’s sister Pippa has also been in the spotlight. Catherine looked very beautiful on her wedding day but her sister looked equally pretty. Pippa kind of stole the show with her gorgeous gown and people couldn’t stop talking about her tush. When I saw the Juicy Couture “Ms. Pippa” Bag, I couldn’t help but think of Catherine’s sister. Maybe it’s just a coincidence but the tote sure is classy and pretty just like she is!
