What’s Up With Tony the Tiger? Whimsical or Weird?

012_44c86e13-f67f-4525-a21b-3f02a7e1a896

Whimsical??? Nostalgic??? Moronic??? I'm becoming somewhat exasperated by the "two thousand dollar plus" price tag on what I call "moronic-looking bags". It wasn't bad enough when Moschino featured MacDonald's Golden Arches on Chanel-inspired handbags...now we have Anya Hindmarch being inspired by a bit of childhood nostalgia with Tony the Tiger. We also can't forget … [Read more...]

c400x349

For those of us who are "passionate" about leopard...there's nothing more enticing than Alexander Wang's spotted calf hair bags. Although Wang's bags tend to be on the heavy side (especially the one's with the signature studding on the bottom) we're still totally inspired by Wang's latest collection. Wouldn't you rather sacrifice shoulder pain for a stylish Alexander Wang … [Read more...]

Would You Rather Have a Leather Jacket, Leather Bag or Leather Skirt?

029_3725eb54-f2c7-416f-8594-b422cf1cb088

Honestly, I don't get Moschinos's leather buckle skirt or the jacket bag for that matter. Although these pieces are extremely fashion-forward and stylish...I'd rather have a fabulous biker-chic leather jacket (Alexander McQueen's Nappa Leather Moto Jacket...total obsession!!!!) that I can wear daily...especially given the prices of Moschino's jacket-bag and leather buckle … [Read more...]

Leather Jackets Are Expensive: Can You Achieve the Same Look with Rocking Leather Bags?

008_9feae99f-bced-476c-aee2-a912b2a5fe77

For a good 50 years and counting, the leather jacket has been an icon of American counterculture. You don’t have to be a Hell’s Angel (or anywhere close) to appreciate the fashion awesomeness of a well-made leather jacket, but these pieces can be quite pricey if you opt for the most haute couture versions. Today, we’re going to explore four biker jacket inspired leather bags … [Read more...]

Alexander Wang’s Ruggedly Chic Glamping Bag…WTF???

114546267

Although I'm a huge fan of Alexander Wang...this bag leaves me feeling dry. Dry??? Doesn't quench my thirst in any way. It's a luxe-leather canteen that can't be filled for obvious reasons. So if you're thirsty for some cool water....you're out of luck. The bag boasts "rugged chic appeal" (with gorgeous smooth leather) which I totally agree with. You can definitely carry the … [Read more...]

Fendi’s Ombre Wallet Is a Real “Pick Me Up”

Fendi-Ombre-Zucca-Continental-Wallet

Most of the time I'm too lazy to grab my bag when running off to do errands or meet a friend for coffee. I love the ease of just carrying a zip-around wallet. It's so much lighter than any of my handbags and it's a pleasure to carry. Can't be any wallet...has to be funky! If  I'm not carrying a handbag then I'm carrying a super-cool wallet.
