Swinging with Marni’s Distinctive Fringe Clutch

119553811

So many trends are short-lived in the world of handbags. Fringe seems to be one of those trends that comes and goes. If you invest in a fringe bag it's likely to be out next season and back in style a few seasons later. Although I love to follow trends...studs and fringe are one of those trends I personally don't want to spend a fortune on. I want an "in"  bag that won't break … [Read more...]

79395017

Alexander McQueen (box-skull clutch fame) has proven his talents once again with this fabulous black leather clutch featuring the infamous skull charm in gold-tone with a front fold over flap with two-way zip fastening and the hanging embossed luggage tag. Even though the clutch is a foldover...it's silhouette remains slim. No chunky clutch in these hands! McQueen … [Read more...]

If you're not “up” on Maison Moreau, perhaps you ought to be. One of Barney’s newer lines, Maison Moreau, has been creating sartorial delights since the middle of the 19th Century. The French bag maker and saddler is known for hand-worked pieces and timeless, simple designs. We felt the need to repost this article from last September 2013, as the bags are garnering more … [Read more...]

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...]

Loving Valentino's Rockstud Double Handle Shoulder Tote in this gorgeous rich Bordeaux color. The bag is stunning and perfectly constructed...fabulous style, easy to wear, simple pyramid studding detail, smooth Vitello leather and very cool.

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...]

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...]
