Friday miscellany is here. I spent my day with an interior designer and my mom picking out window fixtures. Let me tell you, no fun. Who really cares about the rings on the curtain rod and which finial to pick.

After the mess that was heard round the world, the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag, LV is still trying to redeem itself with more limited edition handbags that they hope will sit better with the world.

When casted for one of the lead roles in The Devil Wears Prada, I was not sure Anne Hathaway would be perfect for the part. But this pretty gal who was known for Disney roles stepped up to the plate and became a fashionably chic woman on a mission.

Within the scope of Fab’s Spring Handbag Guide, the ladies present us with this fun, printed spring tote. You certainly don’t need to be involved in the nautical world to enjoy it to the fullest. The look of the tote actually reminds me a little of Louis’ Antigua line, even though the print gives the McQ a more bold appearance over the more subtle unprinted LV line.

On the hunt for the perfect green bag, I stumbled across the Miu Miu Coffer in an army green leather. The subtle green leather is ruched and paired with gold hardware. I am a huge Miu Miu fan, and the coffer is one of my favorites, bringing together a braided strap and an across body shoulder strap.

I have said it at least 100 times in 100 different entries, the whole over-zealous monogram pattern does not do it for me. I want the beauty of the bag to attract the attention, not the logofied style.

You know you travel more than most when you start to have people who work the counter recognize you, can answer questions better than the airport staff, know exactly where each gate is at nearly every airport, and have the security check down.

You know the feeling of utter frustration for not being able to put a face to a name, or a name to a face, or remember a name, or remember a face, or ‘remember the time when…’?

I will be the first to admit that my collection of handbags lacks a croc bag. It makes me sad at times, like I am doing exotic bags an injustice. Don’t get me wrong, I want a croc bag but I just have to find the perfect one.

Ready for a vacation far far from the paparazzi, civilization, and anything that resembles a camera, Britney Spears enjoyed lunch with a sombrero, eyelet white dress, a brunette wig, and a lovely piece of arm candy.
