‘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 ...

Splurge du Jour: Burberry The Big Crush in Heart Print Calfskin

Today I’m crushing on Burberry‘s adorable The Big Crush in Heart Print Calfskin. It’s a nice departure from Burberry’s recent heavily structured bags with heavy hardware. The ‘Big Crush‘ is ...

To buy or not to buy: Pour la Victoire ‘Butler Large’ Snake Embossed Leather & Suede Tote

I have a ‘slight obsession’ with handbags which is one of the reasons I started this blog.

I see so many haute bags that it’s easy to ...

Splurge du Jour: Tom Ford Medium Peccary Natalia Bag

I always said I’d probably never spend over three grand on a bag (save for a Chanel, but hey, those are ‘classic, investment pieces’, right?). And I’m sticking to that, even though this Tom Ford Medium Peccary Natalia Bag ($3,690) is soooo nice to look at! I really don’t understand why this tiny little bag costs so much but it sure is chic. This compact bag is basically ...

Haute buy: Reed Krakoff Atlantique Tote Bag

I can tell I’m getting old because my handbag tastes are changing. Back in the day, I was obsessed with logo-covered handbags, but no more. Now I’m into structured leather totes without all the ‘bells and whistles’. Reed Krakoff (design director of Coach, as well is his namesake line) is one designer who creates the most simplistic, yet amazingly eye-catching and meticulously ...
