Fall Preview Continues...
Lanvin is giving fall a unique look. His fur Trousse Shoulder bag is made of gold-dyed fox fur which is made in Italy. It has a 41" bronze chain and black leather strap, black top fabric zip for secure close, flat bottom, and the measurements are 9"H x 12"W x 3"D. The bag itself is put together in Spain. Truthfully, this is one of the ugliest bags I've ever seen. You can probably only take this out occasionally or when you want to make a statement. Whatever the reason, it is definitely not my cup of tea, however if this bag intrigues you, you can pre-order this bad boy...

Perfect Clutch
Perfect Clutch
Finding the perfect clutch for a night event is difficult, but I believe I may have just found one. This Judith Leiber Silver Gem Studded Clutch is a beauty with just enough ‘bling’ to carry to a formal event but not overly done so that you can dress it down to a night out with your friends.

The interior contains 3 compartments lined in a red micro fiber with cell phone pouch. It’s simple, yet elegant. I rate this LV handbag...

Garden Party Bag as a Beach Bag
Garden Party Bag as a Beach Bag
I think most of you would know by now that I love most things by Hermes. I mean how could you not!! I was browsing through Portero when I came across this image and was immediately attracted to it. It is called a Garden Party Bag, but I think it makes a great beach bag albeit a really expensive great beach bag. It is made of 100% cotton linen with black leather handles and trims and closes with a center snap. This bag measures 14” by 10.25” by 6.5” which makes plenty of space for beach gear and necessities. Or you can even get the extra large size that runs...

Summer Clutch
Summer Clutch
I love sailor stripes and I love this clutch. This Lurex Straw Sunday Clutch is one of Juicy Couture’s latest cutest creations that is perfect for the summer nights out to a beach club or a beach party. The stripes are made of shimmering lurex which is a type of yarn that appears slightly metallic. The clutch is simple with a leather flap over with magnetic closure and a logo hardware piece. It comes in two colors: Angel (pictured above) and Black, but I love the Angel color over the black because the contrasting tan leather and white stripes is a perfect summer combination. The only thing that is preventing...

Bally Moreen Handbag — Simple yet Elegant
Today I will be talking about Bally’s Moreen handbag. This handbag caught my eye while I was surfing the web. I’m not sure if this handbag is still available or if it has been discontinued. The bag costs around $800 at the web site I was browsing. The bag itself is quite appealing. It has a nice brass gold chain that is used to lock the flap in place. The inside of the bag is lined with lavender silk and also has a spacious pocket. Overall, I like the look of this bag, but I wouldn’t mind having a few more compartments throughout the bag though.

Classic, Fun, or Both?
Classic, Fun, or Both?
The other day, I came upon a blog that mentioned the timeless image of a Chanel bag. Just the mention of Chanel brings up adjectives such as classic and sophisticated. When one wants to invest in a handbag that can be used decades from now, Chanel is on the top of the list of brands to select from. While all of this may be true, it’s never a bad idea to have a fun bag that you can take with you out on the town. This is where the Chanel classic flap bag comes in. Its jewel embellishments and tweed material adds the right pop to any outfit you might...

Rebecca Minkoff Japan Relief
Rebecca Minkoff Japan Relief
If you haven’t made a donation to the Red Cross or other charities for the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami disaster, you can make your donation by purchasing a Rebecca Minkoff bag. It’s not exactly a donation, but rather a purchase for a very good cause. Rebecca Minkoff will donate $100 from the sale of each red purse to the American Red Cross to help the Japanese victims affected by the devastating events. She has created a section on her website to dedicate this cause which features six red Italian leather bags. Why red? Probably to symbolize Japan’s symbolic red sun and the Red Cross. All six bags are affordable, ranging from $295-$495...
