Mulberry gets foxy! Splurge on this deer brown haircalf Mulberry Bayswater bag with fox face rivets

If you follow Handbag du Jour regularly, you know that there’s nothing I love more than studs on a bag. No matter what silhouette, style or material of the bag, studs always take it up a notch and add a little extra edge. I think a studded bag balances perfectly with a sweetly feminine outfit like a flirty dress, and equally well with a more rocker-style outfit of a blazer, tee and leather leggings. ...

Splurge du Jour: Fendi Chameleon Multicolor Bag

Every time I hear the word ‘chameleon’, immediately think of that Boy George/Culture Club song, ‘Karma Chameleon‘ comes to mind. I don’t know why it sticks with me, especially the lyrics that go “Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dream. Red gold and green, red gold and green“. I guess you can blame growing up in the 80’s for that. And ...

Haute or not: Louis Vuitton Pulsion Lockit in sheepskin

There are some luxury brands whose bags we have a love/hate relationship with, but Louis Vuitton never has been one of them. Their designs are typically classic and reliable. When they release new handbags, you can pretty much count on them to create some fabulous leather or exotic iteration of their iconic monogram. So when we saw this Louis Vuitton Pulsion Lockit in sheepskin with a matte calfskin ...

Work essential: Rachel Zoe ‘Zoe’ Tote bag

Finding the perfect work bag is sometimes tougher than you think. It has to be functional, naturally, and must have enough space to store everything you’ll need throughout the day – like paper files, a book or magazine to read, bottled water, perhaps a change of shoes, etc. And on top of that, it needs to carry all these things while maintaining its chic and not looking bulky or overstuffed. ...

Splurge du Jour: Valentino Rockstud Dome Satchel

Sometimes Fall bags can be boring, with the same old silhouettes, in predictable Earth-tone colors and a few touches of pony hair here; fur trim there. So we love it when a designer creates that perfect handbag that is a classic, yet attention-grabbing and utterly chic piece, all in one. Such is the case with the Valentino Rockstud Dome Satchel. It’s a fun and exciting studded bag for Fall, ...

Alexander Wang’s Rocco Satchel comes in Espresso and Emerald versions for Fall

We don’t have to tell you all the reasons why we love Alexander Wang, or his Rocco Duffel – we’ve already done so, over and over again. So we’ll just say that there are some new Rocco Duffels in town: the Espresso Rocco Satchel With Rhodium Hardware and an Emerald Rocco Satchel With Rhodium Hardware -colored version that fit right into the earth tone color scheme for Fall, and ...

Haute bag on the cheap: Givenchy Nightingale Nylon Tote

Nylon bags typically aren’t our thing (we’re partial to luxury leather and exotics), but every now and then we spot one on the level of nylon bags that shot Prada to handbag fame. And a black, nylon handbag never goes out of style, especially when said bag is a Givenchy Nightingale. Yes, the leather versions of the Nightingale are extraordinary (especially this one), but this nylon option ...

But we know not everyone can afford to drop hundreds on a handbag, and while we’re not at all advocating buying knockoffs, a good DIY inspired by a bag and brand you love is always fun. Check out this DIY- Spiked Bag made by Kara at Sprinkles in Springs. ...

Love photography? Live for fashion? The ONA Brooklyn Satchel is perfect for the fashion-savvy photographer

As a photography junkie, I like to have my camera with me at all times. But as a fashionista, I can’t stand ruining my look with a bulky black nylon camera bag. So I was happy to discover a bag that combines a fashionable element to a fully functional camera case and is pure genius. Introducing ONA (Swahili for “to feel,” “to believe,” and “to experience with the ...
