Every year the Renaissance fair came to my town and every year I went and ate the largest pesticide infested pickles, watched live Chess, and gnawed on a turkey leg. One year my class took a field trip to the fair and for extra credit we could dress up; of course I dressed up because what kid does not want a 110% in 3rd grade?
I realize many teens want to rage against authority and colors, but Lindsay, you are looking a little bit scary mmmkay? The combination of pale skin, dark jeans, dark hat, black tank, is not very flattering and your outfit is screaming for a splash of color.
For the most supple leather, I turn to Bottega Veneta handbags. If you have never had the pleasure of touching a BV bag close up you are truly missing out. The woven leather is divine. My gorgeous pick for the day is the Bottega Veneta Catena Large Veneta which makes my handbag loving heart melt with its lush woven white Nappa leather and brown stitching pattern.
A handbag is a handbag, so any extra touch can differentiate a handbag from ordinary. Ways to get the job done would include exotic materials or updating the usual parts (like handles). Perfectly distinguishing itself from the rest, the Devi Kroell Nile Perch Shoulder Bag uses both exotic fish skin along with a shoulder strap that threads through holes and hangs in place with gold slim cylinders that act like toggle closures.
As you all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The month is coming to a close, but you can always give money to the cause throughout the year. I am an advocate of simply giving money to The National Breast Cancer Organization, but I have found that I am more apt to buy certain products that have proceeds that are donated to it also.
I know it is Sunday evening and no one really wants to bother to think, but my flu/cold has completely inhibited my ability to process anything- hence we shall play Name That Bag!! While I am well aware that the blue shopping bag is Tiffany’s, can any of you name Halle Berry’s black handbag?
The trend for spring 2007 handbags will be sleek and streamlined. Karl Lagerfeld combines this spring trend with perfect charm decoration in this Chanel Charm 2.55 Handbag. On top of classic Chanel quilting are charms ranging from the word Paris to a butterfly to the classic Chanel CC.
One simple word: unimpressed. Chloe Dao was Project Runway Season 2‘s winner. While on the show her designs were elegant and fit in all the right places for the women that modeled them. Granted The Chloe Bag by Chloe Dao is meant to be used as an overnight bag or carry on, the color and saying looks overly simple and grade-schoolish.
