Bag review: Lipault of Paris 18″ Weekend Satchel

There’s no shortage of handbags in my closet, but when it comes to travel bags, I’m at a loss. A few years ago I invested in some designer luggage that was more stylish than sturdy and it spontaneously collapsed after only a few trips! When I travel now, I usually carry a ton of bags: my handbag, my laptop bag, a beauty bag, a bag for miscellaneous stuff and sometimes a few others handbags ...

Splurge du Jour: Saint Laurent Small Sac De Jour Carryall Bag in Neon Pink

Pink is my favorite color so naturally I can’t get enough of hot pink accessories! Several years ago I spotted a pic of Savannah Brinson-James toting a fluro pink Celine Luggage Tote and I had to have one. I had my ‘bag guy’ at Neiman Marcus track one down for me in about two days and it’s been my favorite bag ever since. But now there’s some competition. This Saint Laurent ...

Five Alexander Wang bags that should be included in his H&M collection

By now you’ve heard that Alexander Wang is collaborating with H&M! This is my dream collaboration – my favorite ‘edgy,’ ‘downtown’ designer (especially when it comes to his accessories) and my favorite fast-fashion store! What could be better? Since there are no images of the collection yet (it debuts November 6), everyone’s been speculating about what ...

Joanie Totes: Celebrating life and love of all things fancy and fabulous!

It doesn’t take much for me to get excited about new handbag collections. Especially when the line was created by a friend, and for an amazing cause! My friend Staci, fellow fashion blogger and handbag enthusiast, today launched her line of ‘fancy & fabulous’ bags! The artistic line of bags, called ‘Joanie Totes‘, was created in collaboration with fashion illustrator ...

Rihanna totes two new $9500 Chanel No.5 Bottle Bags

I’ve always said that if I could raid one celebrity’s closet, it would be Rihanna‘s. She always has the latest and best of everything – clothing, shoes, jewelry and handbags. Of course it doesn’t hurt that she has tons of designer friends who love gifting her with stuff. Have you seen her Instagram pics lately? Over the holidays she received new (and some personalized) ...

Marisa Tomei clutches a gold Emm Kuo Bilbao minaudière

Marisa Tomei has always been one of my favorite actresses, and I will always remember her as the wild-haired, wild child ‘Maggie‘ on one of my favorite shows, ‘A Different World‘. She has since gone on to act in a million other things and recently attended the Variety Creative Impact Awards and 10 Directors to Watch brunch, where she presented the Creative Impact in Acting ...

Karl Lagerfeld wants you to spend $3,400 on this Chanel Bricolage Backpack

Out of all the bags I own and have owned, I have yet to purchase a Chanel. I really want one, but as the prices for new Chanel bags rival a down payment for a house, I’m holding off for now. If I were to drop $3-5K on a Chanel though, it most certainly would not be this Chanel Bricolage Backpack that looks like what I call a ‘lazy Sunday afternoon’ project. As first seen on the ...

Coming soon: BLACKSEA Spring 2014 Bag Collection

Over the years I’ve been noticing a return to simplicity in handbag design, with more of a focus on the use of color, and colorblocking, to make bags pop. A new handbag line that’s set to launch in Spring 2014 called BLACKSEA does just that. Described as “an experiment in geometry, texture and color,” BLACKSEA’s debut capsule collection features timeless staple pieces ...

Haute or not: Alexander Wang Racketeer Sling Geyser Haircalf Shoulder Bag

Let me start this by saying that I LOVE Alexander Wang. I once saw him in SoHo late one night standing outside and peeking in the window of his store. I was out with my husband riding bikes and I couldn’t resist yelling out, “Alexander – I’m a such a huge fan!” He smiled and responded with a modest “Thank you.” He probably thought I was a crazy person, but ...

For the cat lovers: DVF ♥ Harley Viera-Newton Circle Fetish Cat Clutch

Feline lovers know that next to diamonds, a cat is a girl’s best friend, so it’s no surprise that one would immortalize their cat in designer handbag form. No, nothing creepy here – just a cute, kitty-inspired clutch! Diane von Furstenberg joined forces with NYC DJ Harley Viera-Newton to create the DVF ♥ HVN Circle Fetish Cat Clutch. This limited edition Fetish Box Clutch was inspired ...

‘Buggin’ out’ over Fendi’s Monster Eyes Peekaboo Bag

Say what you want about Fendi (I certainly have) but one thing you have to love about the brand is that they’re not afraid to take chances. It doesn’t always work out for the best but we all have our hits and misses. Their latest bag is the Fendi Monster Eyes Peekaboo Bag in Black/Yellow. It’s a creative (and timely, since Halloween was last week) take on their standard Peekaboo ...

Bag Collector: Salvatore Ferragamo limited edition accessories on Moda Operandi

Salvatore Ferragamo‘s limited edition accessory collection debuted today on Moda Operandi and each candy-colored piece looks like it was painted with a brightly colored brush! The eye-popping bags come in shades of cobalt blue, coral pink, and deep orange and fuchsia (plus a few black and white accessories for those who prefer classics). Prices are hefty, ranging from $1,890 for a minaudiere ...

Splurge du Jour: Prada Glacé Twin Pocket Tote – as seen on Kerry Washington on ‘Scandal’

I’ve got a new bag obsession and I blame ‘Olivia Pope‘. Actually, I blame Lyn Paolo – costume designer for the cast of Scandal. As addictive as the story lines are, so much so is what Kerry Washington is wearing on the show. She has a love of white suits, Burberry trench coats and Prada bags, and the latest (which grabbed my attention) is the Prada Twin Pocket Tote Bag. Ever since ...

Pardon my French: Clare Vivier RE BONJOUR Clutch

Ever since going to Paris in 2008, I’ve been obsessed with all things French! So naturally I fell in love with this clutch from Clare Vivier. To celebrate the relaunch of her web store, the designer created a very special version of her classic Flat Clutch. The result is this gorgeous gold metallic, coated denim RE BONJOUR Clutch! It features the word ‘RE BONJOUR‘ (which means ‘hello ...
