Color-blocking is still a hot trend right now, so don’t pack up those bags just yet. I have a love-hate relationship with the color-block trend. I think it looks fabulous when like colors are used (neighbors on the colorwheel) but not when the colors are random (like pairing orange, blue and brown on one bag). It’s too chaotic for my style. I know some may look at all the different color combinations as trendy, but I prefer more of the classic look. To me this Miu Miu Madras Two-Tone Bag will look fabulous even beyond the “Color-Block Trend” deadline.
Happy Halloween everybody!!!!

Miu Miu is known as the provocative and modern little sister of the grand House of Prada. There’s something uplifting, flashy yet sophisticated about Miu Miu, and we sure love it! I’m thrilled to see that gemstones aren’t strictly accessible to clutches and framed accessories only. Miu Miu agrees as they support precious stones on enlarged bags such as we see on their Madras Jeweled Satchel.
Miu Miu’s new Cruise Collection for 2012 is all about over-the-top glamour! It is definitely a change from the simple and minimalistic designs Miu Miu has been putting out lately. But it is a new year and there is no better time than now to do a little experimenting. My favorite piece from this collection is the Metallic ‘Stage’ Cristal Mini Bag. It is very similar to the Nappa Cristal Clutch currently available through the designer’s official website. However, this mini bag is… well… mini! It measures only 7 inches by 5 inches, which makes it even cuter!
I’m obsessed with this stunning Tote from Miu Miu. It’s the perfect balance of classic and chic without being too fussy. Whether you are a fashionista on the go, busy executive or lady who lunches, this bag will be the perfect choice!
Luxurious black padded leather combined with touches of signature gold hardware give this bag a glamorous edge that compliment the structured styling.The buckle detailing on the top handle help it maintain a touch of casual. A detachable shoulder strap provides a functional hands-free feature.
We are already well into July and it is 100 degrees outside. It’s hot and humid, the typical summer weather for where I live. I can definitely tell you that fur is the farthest thing from my mind right now. It makes me hot just looking at it! But I think my fellow Bag Bliss blogger, Deysa, was on to something when she presented the Prada Eco Mongolia Garden Tote. From the look of things, fur is going to be the thing for Fall 2011. Not just any fur, but faux fur. I think I agree with Deysa, definitely not something you would imagine coming from the creative minds behind our favorite premium designer brands.
This season, Miu Miu produced one of the boldest collections on the runway with huge stars, bold graphic prints and eye-catching colors. A few of the bags were lucky enough to share these elements. The Neon Miu Miu Bag received the gift of color.
There’s nothing that cheers me up more in the Spring when the grass turns bright green, the leaves bud and a sense of happiness emanates from nature. Now you can capture that essence and hold onto it with this brilliant shade of neon spring green! Perfect against black, white or brilliant cobalt blue. Pair it with a sunny shade of orange for a color block inspired element!
Turquoise is one of those colors that I will never get sick of! Especially when it comes to accessories. I absolutely love the bright eye-catching shade and now that it’s spring, almost summer something tells me were going to be seeing a lot more of this color.
