Bag it: FEED Trick-or-Treat bag for HSN

Earlier this week, I headed over to the HSN preview event for the new FEED Trick-or-Treat bag to benefit UNICEF. At the event I chatted with HSN president, Mindy Grossman, and FEED co-founders, Lauren Bush and Ellen Gustafson, about the FEED bags and their worthy cause. FEED burlap tote bags help eliminate world hunger, as almost all of the proceeds are donated to UNICEF to fight hunger. Each bag is ...

Diane von Furstenberg Jungle Cool Beach Tote

Yesterday I shopped the Diane von Furstenburg sample sale preview, thanks to Gilt. Inside the DvF sale, there were prints galore! I snagged a cute brown tiger print dress, along with an adorable ruffled tee. There were also print wrap dresses, swimsuits, coverups, and scarves. The bag selection was small – a shoulder bag here; a pouch there, but none were as cute as this Diane von Furstenberg Jungle ...

Haute bag of the week: Halston Heritage Metallic Tote

It’s safe to say that naming Sarah Jessica Parker creative director of Halston Heritage reinvigorated the brand, and the new collection has definitely gotten our attention. The dresses, like the one she wore in Sex and the City, are nice summer pieces, but check out this stunning bag from the collection. The Halston Heritage Metallic Tote could easily rival some of our favorite designer bags. ...

Sara Berman Jivvy studded-leather tote

Ok, we realize spring is coming but we can’t shake our love for dark, studded, punk-style leather totes. We should be eyeing soft spring colors but instead we’re trying to hold on to the last vestiges of winter with this Jivvy studded-leather tote by Sara Berman. This soft leather bag has a Rihanna-‘hard’ edge with all-over gold studding. more…  Read More →

Rain, rain go away but the Gucci Packable Nylon Tote can stay

Even though spring is officially here, it sure doesn’t feel like it! The rain shows no signs of letting up, so now it’s becoming a case of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”. Or in this case, join ‘it’ – the rain, that is. We cover up with waterproof trench coats, and sport Hunter Wellies on our feet so why not carry a rain-savvy (yet stylish) ...

Haute bag of the week: Be & D New Garbo Tote

Leave it to Be & D to create such a stunning studded bag that we’ll never want to give up the trend. If you thought studs were so last year, you were wrong. The BE & D New Garbo Tote denim blue leather incorporates the new stud trend – cone studs – with this dreamy denim blue leather in one irresistible tote. more…  Read More →

The Sang A. Hand-Painted Eel River Tote makes a strong statement

If you’re going to invest in a statement bag, then it better make a strong statement. And the Sang A. Hand-Painted Eel River Tote bag certainly does. This bag is uber-haute, and there’s several reasons why. First, it is the roomy Sang A. River tote silhouette which, in itself, is a pretty great bag with its large shape, long double rolled handles and signature rectangular gold zipper pull. ...

Kooba Jagger Expandable Leather Shoulder Tote

When I think ‘rockstar bags’, I think Kooba. And the appropriately named Kooba Jagger Expandable Leather Shoulder Tote is exactly the bag that comes to mind. Made of Kooba’s luscious glazed and distressed leather, the tote is unique in that it zips down the front, as well as on each side to expand the bag. more…  Read More →

Bag Lady: Chloé Baggage Claim

Last night I went on my second date with Michael. We went to the movies and saw one of those cliché romantic comedies, followed by drinks at the Gansevoort. Things were going smoothly. Despite the fact, we had a slight communication problem. He didn’t understand why I refused to let him hold my bag while I went to the ladies room (it almost got ugly). It was a nice gesture but, I couldn’t ...

Hermes-style bags (without the hefty Hermes price)

My colleague, Melissa, recently mentioned that she discovered her dream bag. Unfortunately, it was the Hermès Birkin Bag, and the price and waiting list was less of a dream; more of a nightmare. So she asked Handbag du Jour to find some Hermes-style handbags for her, in a more affordable price range. Now we’re not proponents of ‘look-alike’ knockoffs but we found several well-styled ...

Haute bag of the week: Prada Saffiano Print Tote

Spring has sprung! Well, in stores at least. It may be cold outside but retailers shelves are already stocked with warmer weather goods. Even if it’s too soon to start shopping for tank tops and shorts, it’s never too soon to start snatching up spring bags. Prada‘s spring collection is already in stores and the pièce de résistance is this Prada Saffiano Print Tote. more…  Read More →

Haute or Not: Bottega Veneta Cushion Tote

I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of Bottega Veneta bags but I’ve never seen a bag of theirs that I didn’t like. Until now. Bottega decided to take an ottoman, add handles to it and call it a handbag. This fugly pillow with rolled leather straps is called the Bottega Veneta Cushion Tote certainly lives up to its name. It is exactly what it says it is – a cushion with ...

Guess what you’ll find at the top of our Christmas lists? Luxury handbags, of course. There’s plenty to choose from but we just can’t get enough of the Chloé Python Paraty bag.

Olivia Harris Spider Tote

A certified arachnophobe, I usually cringe at even the sight of the word ‘spider’. That said, I was immediately drawn to the Olivia Harris Spider Tote. You may not be too familiar with the Olivia Harris brand but you should be. It’s the sister line to Gryson and it’s like the hipper, cooler, edgier little sister. Not to say we don’t love Gryson, we do, but we’ll ...
