Christian Louboutin Multicolor Stud Bags: Haute or Not

Listen – I’m a sucker for pretty much anything studded. But in my opinion, metal or monochrome studding looks a bit more sleek than multicolor. And if you’re going to do colors, just keep it simple! Christian Louboutin‘s Sweet Charity Multicolor Stud Flap Bag, Multicolor Studded Bowler Bag and Panettone Chevron Studded Leather Zip-Around Wallet each feature an explosion of ...

Haute or Not: Burberry Bloomsbury Nubuck Hand-Painted Bag

Burberry is a high-end British brand that is known for its signature check print and is synonymous with luxury. Burberry bags are typically sleek and polished, and very well made (like one of my all-time favorites, the Burberry Warrior bag), and the price tags reflect that. So it’s baffling how this Burberry Bloomsbury Nubuck Hand-Painted Bag ($3,995) came to be part of the Burberry Fall 2014 ...

Haute or not: Marc Jacobs Spotted Teddies shearling hobo bag

What’s up with all these strange furry bags this season? We recently showed you the Louis Vuitton Pulsion Lockit in sheepskin that looked like leftovers from a stuffed animal factory, and recently we came across this Marc Jacobs Spotted Teddies shearling hobo bag that also looks like a toy gone wrong. MJ is the Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton, so it makes sense that this similar hideousness ...

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 ...

Haute or Not: Beirn Appliqué Grace Tote

We’ve been fans of Beirn bags ever since the Beirn Jenna Watersnake Tote made its debut in the very fashionable film, Sex and the City 2. And owning several Beirn bags has only amplified our love for the brand. More recently Beirn has introduced chains, rivets and other hardware to their bags, adding a tough edge that we like. And we’ve found that Beirn bags are versatile – they make ...

Haute or Not: Balenciaga Edition Ottoman Dupionne Tote

By now we’ve seen enough Balenciaga bags to spot that signature hardware a mile away. So if we had seen this one out on the street and someone would have told us it was a Balenciaga, we wouldn’t have believed them! Unlike many of their other styles, this bag is completely hardware free, and the design is much more basic than those leather moto-style satchels we love. The Balenciaga Edition ...

Haute or not: JOYRICH Cat Studded Waist Pack

There’s something about this JOYRICH Cat Studded Waist Pack in Leopard that’s equally tacky and trendy. Now we’re no fan of fanny packs – they conjure up awful images of the early 90’s when everyone paired them with biker shorts and cut up T-shirts as a ‘look’. But there’s something about this bag that makes us not want to turn away just yet. Perhaps ...

Haute or not: Marni Medium leather bag

We’ll whip out our credit cards for Marni, virtually anytime. The shoes, the clothes, the accessories – they mostly make us swoon. We have to literally stop ourselves from clicking the ‘Buy’ button on all the Marni goodies we see. But then we saw this Marni bag which stopped us in our virtual tracks. We’re used to the vintage vibe of Marni – think chunky platform heels; ...

Haute or Not: the Herve Leger Geometric Clutch

Hervé Léger continues to wow us with new versions of its iconic bandage dress, yet we don’t have quite the same thrill over its handbag line. Which is weird, because designer Max Azria knows how to make a mean accessory. We wore/carried BCBG shoes and handbags for years before we were even interested in the clothing. And if you’re wearing a spectacular Hervé Léger dress (which pretty ...

Halston Heritage Sequin Folded Clutch

Is this an SJP creation? Much as we love her style, we were highly skeptical about her being named Creative Director of Halston Heritage. And if this bag is a shining example of her work with the brand, then we’re sorry to say that we were right. The Halston Heritage Sequin Folded Clutch ($195) is pretty hideous. We have mixed feelings about sequinned anything, and the small gold sequins covering ...

Haute or not: Foley + Corinna’s Cargo bag

As much as we love clutch bags, chic as they are, sometimes they can be a bit impractical. But we expect it – clutches are small and cute and only meant to hold the basics for going out (keys, money, credit cards, lip gloss, and cell phone). But when we buy a hobo, our expectations are that it go beyond a clutch – and hold a lot. That said, we think the Foley + Corinna Cargo Bag ($495) is one ...

Haute or Not: J.J. Winters Chain Fringe Bag

We know J.J. Winters is the go-to brand for boho bags. We’ve seen their fringe hobos on the arms of Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Haylie Duff. And now the brand created a new take on the fringe bag – chain fringe. The J.J. Winters Chain Fringe Bag in Black is made of black suede, in its signature large hobo silhouette, but with gold chain ‘fringe’ accents. 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 ...

Haute or Not: Yves Saint Laurent Mini Charm Leather Bag

We’ve come to know what to expect of Yves Saint Laurent in terms of handbags. From the flat Tribute to the Downtown hobo, the Easy and Muse satchels and the Roady hobo, sleek lines and classic styling are the common characteristics of YSL handbags. And they typically come in rich hues of red, emerald green, deep navy and black. So we were thrown for a loop when we came upon the Yves Saint Laurent ...

Haute or Not: the Kate Spade Sherwood Ida

All of us bag addicts look forward to the changing of the seasons which means a whole slew of brand new bags. So when spring and summer are coming, we start to check out the options – same goes for fall and winter. But when I’m on the hunt for fall bags, I’m looking for some nice designs with earth tone colors, possibly some metallics, and an evening bag or two – I’m not actually ...
