YSL Rides Pony
Yves Saint Laurent handbags are something I have grown to love. I love his more simpler bags, such as the Roady bags and the Muse bag. I happen to come across the Brown Pony Hair Muse Bag that is presented above and had all sorts of clashing thoughts in my head. First of all, I love the shape and design, and really really love the color. It is a common dome bag, sometimes called a bowling bag, accentuated by simple hardware that stands out, but doesn’t overpower the bag. The color is a rich brown, great for the fall and winter. Then I thought how crazy it is that this...

Waterproof Handbag??
Waterproof Handbag??
If you know me, then you know that I absolutely love Valentino’s signature floral designs. That is why I initially got excited for their Primavera Water-Resistant Tote. It is pretty much shaped like a beach tote with two leather handles. What a great way to carry an elegant style to the beach! However, as I read the descriptions, I was honestly a little disappointed. I would expect a waterproof bag to be of nylon material, but the body of this tote is all canvas, which doesn’t really absorb water or anything. Another thing that disappointed me was that instead of having a zipper top closure, it has a magnetic closure...

Out of this World!!
Out of this World!!
Collaborations are always interesting to watch, seeing how two contrasting concepts mesh together. What is even more interesting is the latest Kipling’s collaboration with London designer Peter Pilotto. Pilotto has a flare for outer space, galaxy and machine prints and has designed Kipling bags with such prints. This collection will include shoulder bags, fanny packs, backpacks, and cross-body bags. With eleven bags and five accessories, the collection will have pieces running from $26 to $98, sold at Kipling outlets. You will also be able to buy these space bags online as soon as next week. The prices are decent, but I’m not sure if I would really spend money for...

New Clutch Designer on the Rise!
New Clutch Designer on the Rise!
I wrote about a rose clutch earlier this year that I was absolutely in love with. It was a Sondra Roberts clutch and it was the first time I have ever heard that name. This time around, I have found another one of her clutch that is so elegant and cute at the same time. This clutch is another flower clutch, but instead of the big floral statement, this clutch is covered with tiny bead-dotted flowers. The only color I found was Ivory, which goes great for the Summer or Spring. The flowers are made of polyester and the clutch has a drop-in chain. If you like this clutch as...

Exotic Season
Exotic Season
   As I was browsing online for bags, I noticed a lot of exotic skins and studs. Both were trends several years ago, but I suppose fashion is all about recycling trends in a new way. Coach has come up with some new bags that tell us that exotic skins are in again. The majority of their new bags are of python skin, which is a trend I have been seeing lately such as in Michael Kors bags. This makes me sad because it reminds me how fall is approaching. People tend to carry bags of texture during the fall/winter such as bags of different leathers or studs; whereas...

Fall Essential

I have found my new must have for the coming fall! This Fendi Chef Hobo Tote is exactly what I've been looking for.

It comes in tobacco, black, or red zucca-print calfskin with a solid tonal leather trim. It has golden hardware, top handles, magnetic snap closure and a front slouchy patch pocket with logo push-lock flap. The beautiful bag comes in two sizes large and small. The large will cost you $1135 and the small will cost $1015. You...

Prada East West
Prada East West
I have always had mixed feelings about Prada bags. Some are just very tacky, in my opinion, and others are quite simplistic. This one above is simple and elegant. I like leather simple totes that are easy to open and easy on the eyes. The pictured bag is the Prada East West Tote in black. It’s very simple, just black, no buckles or buttons; a soft leather bag with the typical Prada hardware in gold. It has two exterior pockets; one zipper pocket and one open pocket in the interior. Easy access to put things in and to take things out. It measures 10” by 15” by 7.5” and has...

Louis Vuitton Made in USA?
Louis Vuitton Made in USA?
Having owned several Louis Vuitton handbags, I never realized where my handbags were made. Just today, I took a look at my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in the Damier canvas and noticed that it was made in USA. This was quite shocking for me, so I quickly looked for my Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 and was astonished to see that it was also mae in USA. I had one more Louis Vuitton handbag to examine before I could make any rash assumptions, so I went digging for my Louis Vuitton Popincourt Haut. With great dismay, it was also made in USA. What is going on here? I know that...

Bag Evolutions
Bag Evolutions
This bag was definitely made to make its audience stop and pause. From the designer, Pauric Sweeny comes this Painted Stripe Python Bowler. His inspiration comes from the fact that he, "admires women who aren't followers, but intuitively stylish, so I design bags with intelligent, adventurous women in mind who possess both a sense of humor and timeless glamour". This bag is made of black/silver/brown python with brown calfskin trim. It has tonal topstitching, silvery hardware, top handles with wrap detail and double rings. It has a 8" drop and removable shoulder strap with lobster clips. It has a zip top with two pull-tabs, feet on the bottom of...
