Louis Vuitton in Paris!

After spending 5 days in Paris chowing down on delicious croissants, crepes and wine, shopping in hip Parisian boutiques and of course taking in all of the art and gorgeous sights I could see, I almost didn’t return to NYC! But I’m back to blog about my new love, Paris, and my longtime love, handbags! All over Paris I spotted women (and men!) with very haute handbags (and manbags!) and ...

Thomas Wylde Colossus Scorpion Bag

There’s something about certain clothes and accessories that just scream S-E-X! Like a slinky black dress or a pair of killer stilettos, or this bag. The Thomas Wylde Colossus Scorpion Bag, White is one hot, sexy bag. Thomas Wylde handbags are always distinctly edgy yet exude a certain femininity. The soft lambskin leather is distressed and has that aged look while still looking sharp and new. ...

Christian Louboutin Studded Leather Tote

Like many, I’m a huge fan of Christian Louboutin stiletto heels. The beauty of his shoes lies not only in the fabulous design, but also in that signature red sole. So when I saw this bag with the peek-a-boo red lining, I was immediately sold. It’s like having those coveted shoes, but in bag form! The Christian Louboutin Studded Leather Tote black leather bag is accented with gold hardware, ...

DVF Wrap Bag

Since the 1970’s, the DvF wraparound dress has been a best-seller and has become an iconic staple in every woman’s wardrobe. So the logical next step was for Diane Von Furstenberg to design a companion wraparound handbag. The DvF “Wrap” bag ($900) is a bucket-shaped hobo made from rich Italian leather with an adjustable strap that wraps around each bag, thus the name. Each ...

The Zac Sac by Zac Posen

I’m always looking forward to Spring. The colors are so much brighter than those dreary Fall & Winter colors and the bonus is knowing that hot Summer weather is just around the corner! But what I love most are the Spring bags! And I simply adore this canary-yellow/vanilla-colored Zac Posen Zac Sac shoulder bag. The color is gorgeous and very Spring-y, and the construction, like all of Zac ...

Maison Martin Margiela Satin Sac Bags

I just love a big slouchy bag. Even though the weight of my bags have been causing me to practically tip over, (since I stuff everything inside), I will never give up on carrying big bags. And a big slouchy bag just looks so carefree, like you just threw on your favorite jeans and T-shirt, and slung the bag over your shoulder. The Maison Martin Margiela Large Satin Sac Bag ($745) is just right for ...

Win a Spring/Summer Clutch from Laura Matthews!

Some time ago I attended an accessories tradeshow which was mostly full of disappointing mass market handbag designers and jewelry vendors. I was looking for haute new designers and most of the collections I saw lacked creativity. However there were a few ‘ones to watch’. And one of those designers was Los Angeles based Laura Matthews. I immediately fell in love with her bags. They were ...

De Couture du Jour

Do you like busy bags? I love them – not those hideously embellished bags covered in jewels and with dangling paillettes and sequins, but bags that have multiple design elements yet remain stylishly chic. Like this Multi Chain Hobo by De Couture. As if the patent crocodile body wasn’t enough, this oversized bag is nicely decorated with details such as a draped silver chain, a patent leather-encased ...

Minority Printed Leather Hobo

I’m really starting to favor bags made of luxe materials, at least the look of luxe. Even those of you who don’t like snakeskin, python and crocodile can appreciate and carry this bag! The Minority Printed Leather Hobo is a made of a beautiful multi-berry colored leather, printed to resemble some sort of animal skin. And I love bags that require minimal hardware yet still look absolutely ...

Haute Handbags at Hayden Harnett

Hayden Harnett has been one of my favorite designers for the simple fact that they seem to churn out new handbag designs at an incredible rate! Every time I check out the site, I see about three or four new bags I want to buy! But I also love HH because their bags are always amazingly well-designed and well-made. Their bags always have that cool modern vintage feel and seem to evoke the reaction of ...

Christian Louboutin’s Metallic ‘Kangaroo’ Bag

If you can’t get enough of Christian Louboutin shoes, then you will definitely love his handbags! Most designers excel at either shoe design or handbag design, (usually not both), but Louboutin’s handbags do not disappoint. Just as luxurious as his signature footwear, Christian Louboutin’s Metallic ‘Kangaroo’ Bag (which is such a weird name for such a lustworthy bag!) ...

Hogan’s Camel & Brown Suede and Leather Hobo

I think it’s great to carry a colorful bag in the Fall since the weather is beginning to get so dreary you sometimes need a pop of color as a pick-me-up. But on the other hand, when I think of Fall, I think of brown tones like tan, chocolate, camel, and other warm shades, and so I look for that in a bag. The Camel & Brown Suede and Leather Hobo Bag – Hogan is the perfect bag to fit ...

Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll

When I think of Rock & Republic, of course I think of rock and roll – edgy leather, zippers, and metallics, and metal hardware. The Rock & Republic Metallic Olive Zipper Hobo in Pewter ($950) perfectly fits the image of Rock & Republic, and if I was a rock star, I’d definitely be carrying it! Ok, reality check – I’m not a rock star, but I still think it’s ...

The Color Purple

Purple is once again the ‘It’ color for Fall and there’s no better color to incorporate into your wardrobe. However, if you want to avoid looking like Grimace, its best to stick to a few key accessories, namely handbags. And there’s no purple bag better than the Bijoux Medium Shoulder Bag by Bliss Lau. It’s a great slouchy hobo with a front flap, piped edges, and Lau’s ...

Kristen Lee’s Haute Hobo

I prefer satin as a great material for evening bags and cool clutches but never really imagine it as the material of choice for something larger. But this satin hobo by Kristen Lee ($297) looks totally practical and, is, in Shopbop’s words, “utterly beautiful”. Kristen Lee Handbags Satin Hobo A super-sized “V”-shaped slouchy hobo gets a makeover with luxurious yellow ...
