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.

My Glimmering Obsession with Edie Parker Clutches

Edie-Parker-Flavia-Cloud-Clutch-31

Just last week I purchased my second glitzy Edie Parker bag. This was for my son's beach-side wedding in Newport. I wanted a black-tie bag but one that was playful and shimmering to compliment my chartreuse gown. (really tired of Judith Leiber) Found the perfect dazzling EP clutch...the Flavia Confetti Bag. Had such a hard time deciding on the bag in silver or gold. Settled on … [Read more...]

007_0a02f9a3-ae85-49f0-a687-fd9fe0bd28d5

Give me a tote over a handbag any day of the week. While I love so many of the spectacular handbags out there...I'm more comfortable carrying a lightweight tote. Maybe it's age related??? I'm totally obsessed with the Givenchy Favelas 74 Tote. The best is...I can shove so many things in a tote and it's still so easy to carry. I have Goyard Totes lined up in my closet and I'm … [Read more...]

Anya Hindmarch’s Quirky Evening Clutches

014_9358dc16-4b3a-4592-84d7-5a46b6e36128

Potato chips just happen to be my ultimate daytime or evening snack...the crunchier and saltier the better. My plate is garnished with them on many a meal. Hindmarch's playful high-shine clutches remind me of my favorite crunchy snack. In my fashionable opinion these potato chip-inspired clutches MISS the mark. They're totally fun but would you carry this PRICEY ($1595.00) … [Read more...]
