Test-drive a Chanel Classic 2.55 Coco Flap bag (for only $350!)

The bag that remains at the top of my wish list is the Chanel Classic 2.55 Coco Flap Bag. The reason it’s not yet in my closet and still on my list? It costs several thousand dollars. I’ve had my splurges on bags here and there, but never a price that high, so I’ve yet to make the leap from Chanel bag stalker to proud Chanel owner. But still I covet a classic Chanel bag like there’s ...

The handbags in Paco Rabanne’s “No Couture” line are literally stapled together. Really.

So here’s a new concept in handbag design – seam-free bags. Designer Paco Rabanne‘s new handbag line, called No Couture, is entirely seamless, and all of the bags are in fact held together by metal staples! If this sounds like a weekend craft project to you, don’t worry, it’s not. Rabanne used his iconic style of incorporating metal-linked rings (like he’s used ...

And her Diane von Furstenberg New Harper Large Day Bag is bound to be one of her biggest innovative hits yet.

While we’ve been trying to justify our intended purchase of a $3000+ luxury leather quilted bag, we just came across one that’s just as cute and a helluva lot less pricey. We’re talking about the Rebecca Minkoff Proposal. This new bag is both sophisticated and chic. Made of quilted leather, it features a large front flap closure and a long gold chain strap (that allows it to be worn ...

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

Fashion inspiration comes from everywhere: Coach Poppy Oil Slick Boxy Bag

Oil slicks are not the first thing that comes to mind when we think of handbags. And oil and handbags are not the most likely pairs. In fact, we’d advise against getting anything oily near your precious bags, old and new. But it appears that oil was the inspiration for the Coach Poppy Oil Slick Boxy Bag, and surprisingly, somehow it works. This crossbody bag is made of a shiny, slick patent leather ...

Bag Lady: Chain Reaction

They say once you go chain you never go back. Ok. Maybe I said it but, it’s true. I can remember my first chain bag, the Marc Jacobs Quilted Stam bag. Marc and I were inseparable for at least 2 months, until I saw my next door neighbor commit the ultimate sin; buying a knock off version on 5th Avenue. When I got my Lanvin Python Happy Partage last year, I knew this was it. Next thing you know, ...

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 ...

Shenae Grimes needs her coffee and her Rebecca Minkoff Chain Clutch

90210 star Shenae Grimes looked like she was having a rough morning but it wasn’t anything a little trip to Starbucks couldn’t fix.

But she did manage to put some thought ...

Rihanna’s new ‘do, nails and Nina Ricci Ondine Pony Hair bag

What exactly is Rihanna famous for again? Oh yeah, she’s a pop star, entertainer and spokesmodel. But it’s hard to remember that since lately we’ve only been seeing ‘candid’ shots of her leaving restaurants, nightclubs and stores. But the girl does know how to keep our attention with her style. She was seen leaving one of her fave New York restaurants, Da Silvano, sporting ...

The Gilt-y Pleasure: Stella McCartney’s Metallic Linen Fold-over clutch

I typically find that Stella McCartney‘s bags are way overpriced, considering she doesn’t use leather. Though many of her handbags are cute, I find that they’re not worth the money. But this Stella McCartney Metallic linen fold-over clutch almost made me want to whip out my credit card! more…  Read More →
