Monica BotkierLast month Vlad and I had the pleasure of meeting with Monica Botkier at a Saks event. I have been wanting to meet Monica for months now (let’s make that years but I was not sure it would ever happen). This beautiful designer has made a name for herself in the accessory world, having her handbags seen on the arms of countless celebrities, carried in all of the biggest department stores, and coveted by many.

This summer we have a few trips planned, and at least one will be to NYC. Something I have always wanted to do is picnic in Central Park.

I have been a fan of the Mulberry Bayswater Bag for quite some time. There is something so simple yet appealing about the design. And yes, it is not super feminine. It is practical and rugged at times, but beautiful when combinations like purple ostrich and a bespoke green crocodile carried by Kate Moss.

In about one hour masses of people will be sitting down to watch the most highly talked about movie of the summer, Sex and the City. But is this movie worth the hype? To be honest, I would not want to be in their place, nor the producers place, nor the wardrobes place, nor anyone affiliated with the movie’s place.

When I first laid eyes on the Diane von Furstenberg Wrap Bag I fell in love with it! I had to tell myself to get over the $10,000 Crocodile Wrap Bag, but I am still kicking myself for not getting the chic blue leather version.

While the fashion world was celebrating the NYC screening of Sex and the City the movie two nights ago, I was crossing my fingers and hoping Comcast had turned our cable on when we got back from Orlando.

I have a new obsession with leopard print. At times I have strayed away from this print, but lately I have been embracing it. But it is not that I want this print on my pleather pants, rather I want it on my accessories.

dollar sign While I am a lover of handbags, I do not have an endless pocket book, which means my collection is by no means the largest or greatest out there. I have a collection that I absolutely love though, with my bags ranging in price from $200 to $9000.
