Louis Vuitton MusetteWe had reported about the new Louis Vuitton Monogram Charms a few months ago, when the collection first hit the Parisian stage. Finally, the first bags start hitting the shelves and the Purse Blog is on it! Introducing the new Monogram, the new Louis Vuitton Musette comes along and pleases us with what appears to be a hit for Spring/Summer of ’06. I am not a big fan of the classis Monogram Canvas myself, but I must say that I really dig this variety.

The handbag sports luxurious silk with a vibrant charm bracelet print and is covered with a modern vinyl coating for protection. Tanned calf leather trim adds a vintage-like touch. The Musette is finished with a top flap and signature padlock. This new Louis Vuitton handbag measures 12.8″ x 13.4″ x 3.5″ and goes for a steep $2,140.00 via eLuxury. Many of you certainly know, but there is some that may not. eLuxury is the only store that is allowed to sell authentic Louis Vuitton merchandise on the web. What does that mean for all 3 million other stores that claim real LV for cheap? Be very cautious. If in doubt, you can always hit the Seller Watch on our Purse Forum, and our members can help you verify a seller’s items.

Stella McCartney HandbagFor the end of the week, you guys will all be stuck with me. Horrible, I know. Mrs PurseBlog Herself Megs is taking a beauty break from the blog, the poor thing’s spent and needs some time off. Nothing easier than that! I’ll be more than happy to grant her that wish. I love her, afterall. And in the meanwhile, I will entertain you the best way I can. To start things off on a funky side, I’ve hunted down this colorful and fun spring number from Stella McCartney. This suede hobo measures 15.2 Inches by 5.1 Inches by 10.1 Inches, and comes in a wild color mixture of baby boy blue, purple, red and yellow. I think Stella did a pretty good job, the bag does not seem too overdone with the colors and the combination does please my eyes without giving me seizures. The hobo has got a zip closure, external and internal pocket space and comes with a contrasting strap, which measures 16-some inches in length. Granted, it’s not everyone’s taste, but I like it. And for just under $250, this hobo may just find a few more fans among our readers. Via Yoox!

Hayden Harnett Washed Leather Belt Handled Clutch

I am the Queen of Clutches. Not technically, but I am a lover of clutches- which you all know by now. Breaking into the world of bags is Hayden Harnett, a brand I have talked about before. For a quirky cool clutch check out the Hayden Harnett Washed Leather Belt Handled Clutch. This clutch is not only small and practical but unique and bold. The top part of the clutch is so intriguing and different. There is an oversize belted handle and a really funky leather strap with large clip attachment at the top of the clutch. On the inside there is twill lining and pockets for the most necessary goodies any tech diva should have, a cellie and an iPod. This clutch designed of soft garment-washed leather is different and striking. Something about the iznik yellow draws me in. Buy it through Hayden Harnett for $253.

Shelly Litvak Small Whip Stitched Brown ToteBeing bad to the bone is not always a bad thing. Anyone else notice that skulls and rocker chick look is in? Brands like Holy Grail are making the bad girl one of the “it” girls of the moment. I have bought some nice jeans and paired them with a skull shirt and I love the look. What about you? I love to be able to go from a girly girl to a rocker chick from one day to the next. The Shelly Litvak Small Whip Stitched Brown Tote will help your badass look with its skull in snake print on the front. Very different for a girl who isn’t afraid to show some attitude. Buy it through Le Petite Salon for $1238.

Paul Smith Regent Mangrove Crescent Medium Hobo

From time to time it is so much fun to be a totally girly girl. To feminize, accessorize, and dress up is more than fun for most ladies. Yes men, it is true and I won’t deny it. Most females love to play dress up. Along with dress up come the girly accessories. One of my favorite colors to work with when I am feeling girly is pink. Yes, I obviously am Captain Obvious. For some reason this not too feminine but perfectly cute pink bag has me feeling very girly today. The Paul Smith Regent Mangrove Crescent Medium Hobo is a preppy yet simple bag that “evokes a bohemian spirit of adventurous wanderlust”. That line was too good not to quote. Trimmed with brown leather and white topstitching, the pink canvas with the Regent Mangrove print flows perfectly. On the front there are two pockets, one closing with a buckle and the other with leather ties. There is antiqued brass hardware, ecru linen lining, and a magnetic snap closure. Overall this hobo measures 17″ x 8″ x 3.5″ and is so simple but is calling my name. Whether it be the pink or the print or all of the above, I love this bag. Available via eLuxury for $745.

Michael Kors Ostrich Drawstring Satchel

When I think of Michael Kors, exotic materials do not seem to come to mind. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not an association. But today I have been hit by the Michael Kors beauty truck. There is something about this bag that just looks so supple, rich, and creamy that I can not ignore it. The Michael Kors Ostrich Drawstring Satchel is bold and beautifully with its peanut ostrich body and perfectly accenting brown leather trim. The two shades of brown remind me of some creamy dessert and since I have such a sweet tooth, it makes me smile. The top handles show off detailed stitching along with the rest of the bags contrast stitching. I am not always a fan of drawstring tops, but this top with beaded ties brings the bags goodness together in a way I can’t describe. The hardware and studs are golden which compliment the other colors and materials. On the front, there are two flap pockets with extended tabs. I can’t figure it all out, but there is something so alluring about this bag for me that I just keep looking at it and wishing it was mine. If you love me you will put yourself on the pre-order list and buy this beauty via Bergdorf goodman for $3,000. And, I will accept charity today and happily take this bag if you buy it for me :-)

Botkier Skeleton Big Drawstring BagFor some reason when I was little I used to love drawing skeletons. I am sure one reason was because it was easy for me to do some bones and for another reason I loved Halloween. I wore the same outfit for countless years; a black full body outfit with glow in the dark skeleton outline. I loved that outfit. Now that I think about it, the shirt could still be really cute with jeans. Yes, I am that crazy. Botkier has caught onto my love of skeletons to design an interesting bag. The Botkier Skeleton Big Drawstring Bag shows off its individuality with its vertical leather straps, aka the skeleton bones, which wrap around the green soft Italian leather body. Showing off the skeleton straps are gold metal studs and adding a special touch is the drawstring top closure. On the front of the bag, there are two hidden pockets and on the sides there are patch pockets. On the inside you will find textile lining with a portable mirror and inside zipped pocket. Seemingly large, 18″ x 13.5″ x 5″, this bag is available before Halloween ever comes close at eLuxury for $645.

Nicoli Pocket Dark Brown Distressed Leather and Canvas Satchel I always have a thing for casual chic. What better way to show off understated style than this way. I love attempting to throw on some cute but simple pieces and go out of the house to run errands. Chances are I don’t pull it off as well as some people do, but I sure as heck try. For that laid-back look, distressed leather seems to work wonders. The Nicoli Pocket Dark Brown Distressed Leather and Canvas Satchel doubles over as a practical satchel along with a rugged and distressed vibe to help you pull off the casual-chic look. Designed from distressed brown leather and canvas, this large bag ( Width 14.17″, Height 7.87″, Depth 8.27″) can be used everyday for typical wear and tear. Not everyone is into distressing, but the usability of this bag should be appreciated by most people. This satchel is accented with silver tone metal hardware, is lined with canvas, and has 4 inside pockets (3 open, 1 zipped). Buy it through Forzieri for $239.
