Handsfree iPhone
Handsfree iPhone
I was browsing on Michael Kor’s website to see what new bags they have when I came across this interesting concept: iPhone wristlet. I’m not sure if this concept has been made already, but I have never seen anything like this before. Sure there are hundreds of creatively designed iPhone covers, but an iPhone wristlet may just be genius. Looking for something easy on the hands just for a walk out or to a club, this is a great idea that won’t have you worrying whether you will lose your phone or not. Nor would you have to keep carrying a bag or a clutch that ties up your hand...

Coach Gem
Coach Gem
I’m not typically a Coach fan, but once in a while I will find something of theirs that appeals to my taste. I was browsing through Bloomingdales as I received an email from them showcasing their new handbags. I just love the color of this clutch. The coral color is very perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons. This Coach Kristin Leather Slim Envelope is made of fine-grained leather accentuated with gold hardware snap closure engraved with the Coach logo. The flap over opens to a top zipper closure with pockets and several card slots inside for great organization. It also includes a zip coin pocket and runs 7.75x3.75...

Gucci Bamboo Handbag — Expensive and Ridiculous
Gucci Bamboo Handbag — Expensive and Ridiculous
Yesterday, while shopping in Beverly Hills with my good friend, I saw many beautiful handbags. When we arrived at the Gucci store, my friend pointed at the Gucci Bamboo Handbag and asked me for my opinion on it. I hated it and it was the most hideous handbag I saw the entire day! I told her my honest opinion of the bag, but she disagreed. She was in love. So, we went to ask the sales clerk how much the bag cost. She said that the bag was $1700! Not only did my jaw drop, I started seeing stars! Who would pay that much for such an ugly handbag...

Louis Vuitton Batignolles Horizontal Handbag
Louis Vuitton Batignolles Horizontal Handbag
Back in 2008, I remembered liking this handbag for its simplicity, convenience and elegant look. Today, this bag still plays its role in achieving all of those features. When I was admiring the Batignolles that time however, the price tag was around $790 or so. Today it sells for $930! Louis Vuitton sure knows how to markup their merchandise! This bag is great for everyday use, but it also has its drawbacks. The top of the bag or the entrance of the bag does not have a zipper or any sort of magnetic closure. Instead, they have a metal ring and clasp that hooks into one another to keep...

Rock & Republic Pavia Clutch
Rock & Republic Pavia Clutch
I went out with my friend for dinner yesterday night and she was rocking a “Rock & Republic Pavia Clutch”. For those of you who never heard Rock & Republic, it is a pretty high end brand known for their designer jeans. Let’s talk more about the clutch, shall we? The clutch is extremely long and different. The clutch has no straps and can fit both a wallet and a cellular phone side by side. Though the clutch is long horizontally, the depth and height are more on the small side. The lack of depth and height does not allow for one to put much inside the clutch. ...

Hermes Birkin Handbag Still Popular?
Hermes Birkin Handbag Still Popular?
For those of you who have not heard of Hermes, you are in for a treat! Hermes is a French company known for their exquisite line of elegant leather handbags. Hermes makes very high-end handbags and charges an arm and a leg for their products. The bag you see above is the Hermes Birkin. It is one of Hermes extremely well known handbag styles. This handbag is over a decade old, but is still selling in the Hermes’ boutiques. I’m not too sure if this bag is still popular anymore because I don’t see many people with this handbag. As a matter of fact, I don’t see many people...

LV 2011 Cruise
LV 2011 Cruise
Images from the Louis Vuitton 2011 Cruise Collection has surfaced and I love the clothing and some of the handbags from this particular collection. This collection has a very Spring-feel, as well as a dressed up Barbie on a nice, relaxing vacation-feel. The bag pictured above seems like a great travelling bag–big enough to carry all your travel sized items, yet stylish at the same time. The white makes it great for Spring and Summer, and it also doesn’t hurt to add those summery sunglasses and pink scarf in the picture. I’m not quite sure yet what the name of this bag is and I don’t have any details, but...

Cole Haan — The Maker of China Goods?
Cole Haan — The Maker of China Goods?
The first time I remember hearing of the brand name, Cole Haan, was about 5 or so years back and they were known for making high end men’s shoes. That time their shoes were made in Italy or other countries in Europe. Nowadays, Cole Haan has expanded into apparel, accessories, belts, and shoes for both men and women. With this expansion, came a sacrifice. In order to meet the ongoing demand, Cole Haan had to move manufacturing to China. Many companies are moving their manufacturing plants to China. This is no great surprise. Many factories in China are making high end products with great quality. Factories in China have...
