1002933_1_large

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...]

Proenza Schouler’s Swingy Car Washer Bag!

1008903000_1_large

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...]

If you're going to be "in the fringe" Valentino's Fringe C-Rockee Tote is fabulous, and the olive color is classically spring which is supposedly here. If you live in the Northeast (like me), we still have snow on the ground but that hasn't stopped me from jumping into spring with a new bag purchase! I love the fringe look, and there's nothing better than a sizeable looking … [Read more...]

We’re Captivated by Givenchy’s “Colors of Summer” Inspiration

BGV29AX_mx

It's no secret Givenchy features whimsical designs every season no matter how scary some are. Remember the Rottweiler motif? That totally freaked me out. We've gone from Givenchy's frightening Rottweiler to Givenchy's cool Favelas 74 logo (named for Givenchy's designer, Riccardo Tisci) to the sweet Bambi print and now to this season's serene floral and butterfly motif. Loving … [Read more...]

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...]
