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.
When it comes to fashion I love classy, simple and sophisticated looking things. I’m the type of girl that always dresses up even if I’m just going to the grocery store. Some say I’m weird but is there anything wrong with wanting to be put together at all times? I love my hair and makeup to always be done and heels are a must. When I think of classy designer brands, Yves Saint Laurent immediately comes to mind. However, the fashion house changed their name so now it’s just Saint Laurent. I currently do now own anything by Saint Laurent but I sure do love the Y Ligne Mini Pochette Crossbody Bag.
This beautiful ‘Lutetia’ cerise pink bar is new to Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 collection. I really love the simplicity of this clutch. It has such clean lines and a classic silhouette that it will surely be one of those bags that you’ll find yourself using years from now.
To be honest I’m a little sad over the name change from ‘Yves Saint Laurent‘ to ‘Saint Laurent Paris’, for the most part because I don’t want to see the extinction of the classic Chyc ‘Y’ Collection. To me that iconic ‘Y’ is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of the YSL brand. So yes, I am among the thousands out there that will be sad once it’s dropped from the lines, but until then I’m still hanging onto my ‘Y’ collection with hopes of added another before it’s too late. One of my latest favorites from the chYc collection is the classic clutch.
When I am looking for something new and exciting to write about, I always hit Net-A-Porter first!

I haven’t purchased a new handbag since 2011 and I’m literally dying to get one. At the moment, I’m in acting school and trying to save as much as I can for my upcoming move next year. Therefore, a new handbag isn’t really in my budget at the moment but I love looking on the internet for ones I would purchase if I could. It’s kind of torturous but I know one day that I’ll have a closet like Carrie Bradshaw. Hey, a girl can dream right? I’ll just have a wishlist in the meantime that continues to grow, everyday.
