Haute or Not: Tory Burch ‘Frida’ Canvas Tote

I never saw ‘Frida’ but I heard it was a great movie. Looking at this bag, I think it’s safe to assume that Tory Burch saw the film and was perhaps inspired by Mexican art. But is that really an excuse to design a hideous handbag? Her ‘Frida’ Canvas Tote is (I’m assuming), meant to have a Mexican feel, but it winds up looking cheap and tacky. It looks like a novelty ...

A Little L.A.M.B. and Some Harajuku Love

Gwen Stefani is a true celebrity fashionista, with her own unique style both on stage and everyday (sans the help of an over-hyped stylist). Both of her handbag lines, L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers represent who she is, and who I am, for that matter.

Has Coach gone ...

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Which bag is the shiniest of them all? The Metallic Mirror Leather Tote by Alessandro Dell’Acqua. I have never seen a bag quite like this. The leather shines as if it were a mirror made of gold. As if it weren’t shiny enough, the bags is ornamented with gold metal tags, and gold leather trim. With all this gold, it just may be worth the $1400 price tag. Perfect for the narcissistic fashionista.  Read More →
