My Thoughts on Coach’s New Print
My Thoughts on Coach’s New Print
As I was walking through the airport terminal at LAX, I noticed a lady holding what seemed to be a Coach handbag. However, as I neared the bag, I noticed that the print was all wrong! I was then thinking to myself that her bag was an incredibly lousy knock-off. But, it looks like I was in for bit of a surprise. I came home and took a look on the web. Low and behold, the lady's bag was featured on the front page of Coach’s web site. Boy, did I feel dumb for thinking that lady was holding a fake Coach handbag. It turned out that Coach had...

Prada Spring 2010
Prada Spring 2010
I actually across Prada’s Spring 2010 Collection from an email that Neiman Marcus sent me. I had to say this bag did catch my attention. This bag is called the “Saffiano Print Tote”. In comes in either the begonia (which is the pink) or in a cuoio (brown color) with the multicolor paisley-print on saffiano leather. It is trimmed in silver hardware with a top handles with rings. The dimensions are about 7”Hx12 1/2”Wx2 3/10”D with the interior lined in their signature jacquard. I personally think that this a little too much of the 70’s for me; however I am a fan of the totes and can find...

Introduction to Agnes B.
Introduction to Agnes B.
Agnes B. is a French designer whose designs are very proper, simple and sophisticated. Her designs are not so well known in this country, but seem to have gained popularity in Asia in the more recent years. I have always liked her designs mainly because I like simplicity. Her clothing line is very French styled and her handbag line is very simplistic. To match with the simplicity of her bags, she has created a line of accessories that aren’t over the top, but just right to offset the bags. Her career started at a young age, soon after she graduated from an arts school. She was discovered by ELLE...

Recycled Keyboard Tote
Recycled Keyboard Tote
So, I’m not 100% sure what the purpose of this bag is…but it sure has quite a price tag. It is officially called the “Carmina Campus Recycled Keyboard Tote”. This line is in part owned by the Fendi family, which will later explain the price tag. The bag is handmade from recycled materials. The bottom is made of a rubbery material that looks like it’s used to be a cover for your computer keyboard. It looks more like a diaper bag to me than an everyday tote, but I guess to each it’s own. So the price you will be paying for this tote will be…..$1100. Hmm, I’m...

Valentino Flower Tote
Valentino Flower Tote
I don’t know about you, but I am an avid fan of the television hit series “Gossip Girl”. It’s full of juicy gossip, witty remarks, and fabulous fashion. What’s not to like? The episode that just aired this past Monday night was the last episode before their hiatus and I already am going through withdrawal. Besides the entertainment factor of watching reckless behaviors of the young powerful and rich that rule New York City, every leading female of the show have their own distinct albeit expensive style that makes my eyes ogle as I watch with envy. My favorite character’s style is Blair Waldorf. Her style is sophisticated, elegant, yet...

Bottega Veneta Intrec Argyle Boston Bag
Bottega Veneta Intrec Argyle Boston Bag
Bottega Veneta is one of those brands that I dream about. If I could afford one, I would definitely get one. Bottega Veneta is another brand besides Hermes that represents elegance and quality with its signature woven leather. I’m typically a plain colored kind of girl, not too interested in patterns even when it comes to clothing. However this bag is really catching my eyes. This Bottega Veneta Intrec Argyle Boston Bag is a woven tote with an argyle print, suede lined interior, leather-trimmed zipper pocket and rolled leather handles. This pattern is not too overwhelming–it doesn’t hide the delicate interwoven leather and the color mix is great for any...
