I’m definitely a Louis Vuitton girl and I always will be. Just last week I was at the Neiman Marcus here in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the Galleria Mall. I was looking at the Prada “Parabole”, which I’m absolutely in love with, and the Sales Associate was telling me all about the bag. I remember, I kept saying to him “But I’m a Louis girl, it’s hard to cheat”. He then told me Chanel girls like Celine. Louis Vuitton girls like Prada. Michael Kors girls like Kate Spade. Not sue how much I believe in that because I like anything that’s cute. If it fits my style I’ll most likely love it regardless of the brand!
I didn’t end up ordering the Prada “Parabole” because I purchased a bag last month! The Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 30 “Bandouliere” and I’ve used it almost everyday since I’ve had it. I’ve always wanted a Damier Speedy 30 and when I realized about two months later that the bag had came out with the strap making it now the “Bandouliere” and I convinced myself that I has to have it!

It’s that time again! Another week and another Rebecca Minkoff bag for me to write about. This time, I feel like Mrs. Minkoff’s team has been reading my posts and now their answering my prayers! Finally, another bag black leather bag with gold hardware for me to drool about. I can’t buy any bags at the moment but seeing that color combination together makes me melt! I don’t know what it is but I have an absolute obsession with the color combination of black and gold. It looks elegant, fashionable and sharp! Right up my alley!
I’m sure it comes as no surprise when I say my favorite handbag of 2011 was by none other than Michael Kors. In the past two years I have went from loving multicolored handbags to being obsessed with black leather handbags that feature gold hardware. Every time I see any type of handbag in this color combination I literally squeal!
When Michael Kors released the “Joan” satchel, I was instantly in love. Yes, it wasn’t my typical color combination of black leather and gold hardware but it was truly a beautiful bag. I’ve always been one for satchels and the style of this one was impeccable. The “Joan” really gives off a classy and sophisticated style and because of that I fell in love with it.
“My Mother travels constantly and loves the idea of a bad that’s both utilitarian and luxurious, so I created the Joan bad for her. I hope you enjoy it as much as she does!” – Michael Kors
Those are the exact words hanging from the MICHAEL Michael Kors “Joan” bag. I know, because I fell in love with this bag today and bought it today at Bloomingdales. I’ve been looking for a new black handbag for a while and this one instantly caught my attention. I would like it a tad bit better if it was available in gold hardware but the silver hardware is good enough.
By just looking at this bag on the display, it looked very simple. When I had the sales associate take it down for me it was far more than simple. The “Joan” bag screams classy but sophisticated, which is not my style at all but I love it. I’m more into edgy handbags that catch your eye but when I held this bag in front of the mirror I was sold!
