When Life Hands You Lemons Shop Dolce & Gabbana


I love Dolce & Gabbana's latest whimsical bags but here's the thing...they're seasonal, very pricey and made of cork or raffia. Although Dolce & Gabbana's bags are totally adorable, they're well over three grand (closer to four) and the bags are totally summer. Sadly, many of us have passed on summer shopping and are already purchasing fall. Money to burn on these … [Read more...]

Shop The Latest “IN” Beach Bag


Carrying the right beach bag is almost as important as carrying the right handbag. Some have even reached handbag price status. Just for fun, we're sharing Dolce & Gabbana's Coffa Kendra straw and fur beach bag that is currently sold out but retails for over $2000. Cute beach bag! Does that look like two thousand dollars worth of straw? Although it IS detailed with orange … [Read more...]

A Few Goody Gumdrops Interviews Luxury Handbag Designer, Helena from Swoon Luxe.

Swoon Luxe Collage01

There's nothing more gorgeous than an exotic skin bag. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of interviewing luxury handbag designer, Helena from Swoon Luxe. Her skin bags are to-die-for. I'm sure there are many women "swooning" over her super-chic skin bags! ( I certainly am!) There's probably an incredibly large "wish-list" already on her site. I love Helena's quote, "A beautiful … [Read more...]

Out & About with The Row in Tow


I've been an avid Row lover/consumer/shopper ever since the brand was first introduced at BarneysNY on the prestigious Madison Ave. Their clothes and handbags are made of exceptional quality. I especially love and appreciate their minimalistic look. Nothing's embellished, glitzy or studded. The pieces exude cool, simple and chic. The bags, coats and clothes are made for … [Read more...]

Comme des Garcons Super-Fun Fluorescent Zip-Around Wallets


There are many times I prefer to carry around a wallet rather than a handbag. When I'm running errands or going to the gym (ha ha) I love "not" toting around a cumbersome bag. It's so much easier carrying a zip-around wallet that holds all my immediate necessities....credit cards, licence, cash and coins. My pick for this season is Comme des Garcons' zipped continental (long) … [Read more...]

Proenza Schouler’s Swingy Car Washer Bag!


While I love the classic Proenza PS1 style tote bag and the versatile saddle color, I don't love the fringe detailing. The moment I had "eyes on the bag", car washer came to me! The bag just isn't doing it for me. I want to start singing the song "car washer". The shade is timeless but is the bag? There are just so many ways to reinvent the classic PS1 tote (as seen … [Read more...]

Fontana’s Elegantly-Edgy Pochette Clutch


From my prior Fontana post, there's no doubt that I've fallen for Fontana's stunningly handsome bags. The satchels are incredible, but the calfskin-clutches have stolen my heart and credit card. The problem is...Fontana's Studded Pochette in camel or blue? Can't decide as either color works as a fabulous accent piece with anything in my monochromatic wardrobe. The Fontana … [Read more...]
