Splurge du Jour: Saint Laurent Small Sac De Jour Carryall Bag in Neon Pink

Pink is my favorite color so naturally I can’t get enough of hot pink accessories! Several years ago I spotted a pic of Savannah Brinson-James toting a fluro pink Celine Luggage Tote and I had to have one. I had my ‘bag guy’ at Neiman Marcus track one down for me in about two days and it’s been my favorite bag ever since. But now there’s some competition. This Saint Laurent ...

‘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: Prada Glacé Twin Pocket Tote – as seen on Kerry Washington on ‘Scandal’

I’ve got a new bag obsession and I blame ‘Olivia Pope‘. Actually, I blame Lyn Paolo – costume designer for the cast of Scandal. As addictive as the story lines are, so much so is what Kerry Washington is wearing on the show. She has a love of white suits, Burberry trench coats and Prada bags, and the latest (which grabbed my attention) is the Prada Twin Pocket Tote Bag. Ever since ...

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 ...

Steal du Jour: Zara Suede Graduated Color Clutch

Like many women (and some men too), I was obsessed with the fashion in Sex and the City. Especially, whatever Sarah Jessica Parker was wearing. I mean, her character, Carrie Bradshaw, always had the best of the best: clothes, shoes, jewelry and bags! (On a side note, she also had the best hair and men on the show too, right? But I digress…) Anyway, some of Carrie’s fashion even made its ...

Splurge du Jour: Burberry Prorsum Alligator Satchel in gold metallic

For the ‘bagnista‘ in your life, you can never go wrong with a super haute handbag. Gift her this gorgeous Burberry Prorsum Alligator Satchel for the holidays. Originally priced at $16,095, Gilt is offering today only for an amazing Cyber Monday doorbuster price of $3,999 (down from Gilt‘s retail price of $5,999). This metallic alligator skin bag features a gleaming gold finish that’s ...

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 ...

Get ready to splurge on Balenciaga’s luxury luggage

Forget that logo-covered luggage that every celeb and their mom travels with. Balenciaga offers the latest in classic, understated luxury luggage. The Balenciaga Voyage Small Trolley is a sleek, cognac-colored Italian leather carry-on with two front zip closure compartments, a telescoping handle plus rolled leather side and top handles. Plus, we can’t forget about the signature thimble-like ...

Splurge du Jour: VBH Animal-Print Brera Tote

VBH has come a long way from its simple yet chic envelope clutches. The handbag line created by V. (Vernon) Bruce Hoeksema, former president of Valentino, debuted back in 2000 in multiple hues and variations of leather, python, eelskin and other exotic materials. The brand later entered into big bag territory and the results were just as stunning. Our splurge of the day is this VBH Animal-Print Brera ...

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, ...

Splurge du Jour: Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Flap Chain Strap Shoulder Bag

We know, we know – most crocodile skin handbags are equivalent in price to that of a used car! But sometimes you just can’t resist a good luxury splurge. So if you’re ready, willing and able to blow a few bucks on a designer bag, then an exotic Nancy Gonzalez bag is one that’s worth it. The Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Flap Chain Strap Shoulder Bag is great for summer in this vibrant ...

Splurge du Jour: L’Wren Scott Large Python Lula shoulder bag

It’s rumored that the ‘It’ bag is over, but we can’t help but think there may be a few still out there. One of which may very well be this shoulder bag – the mauve python Lula by L’Wren Scott. The designer recently made fashion news when Oprah wore one of her custom looks on her finale show, and she also recently launched her line of handbags exclusively at Barneys ...

Splurge du Jour: Valentino Ivory & Indigo Leather Petal Tote

Nothing says luxury more than a gorgeously crafted Valentino bag. And the Valentino Ivory & Indigo Leather Petal Tote is a luxury that all bag lovers should indulge in. Valentino is known for its floral embellishments and this Petal Tote is no exception. This large leather satchel features a three dimensional flower across the front, with an ivory toned center and indigo-colored ombre gradation ...

Splurge du Jour: Diane von Furstenberg Python Hayworth Daybag

We can’t get enough of python bags. Especially this one. The Diane von Furstenberg Python Hayworth Daybag is well worth the $1,950 price. You should always expect to pay more for exotic skins like python, but some designers craft a simple snake clutch and charge thousands for it. The Hayworth Daybag is a sizeable, convertible, hugely versatile satchel, so you get more luxury bag for your buck. ...

Valentino 360 sequin bag as seen on Gossip Girl

Tonight’s Gossip Girl episode, “The Grandfather: Part II“, featured what is bound to be the next ‘It’ bag flying off the shelves. The Valentino 360 made its debut on the arms of ‘Brandeis‘, Blair’s (Leighton Meester) new BFF/’working girl’. The bag featured on the show was white and black; on Valentino’s website there is a black sequin ...
