I have all sorts of feelings about the Bulga Panache Convertible Bag, so stick with me here for a second. My first feeling is that the leather flaps are too long and make it look sloppy.

Hey you guys, come look at this – I may have found the prettiest straw bag I could ever hope to find. You see, “pretty” isn’t really a term that’s often used to describe straw bags – they’re mostly functional and fun purses that serve their purpose for a few months and are replaced the next time warm weather rolls around.

As much as we love the established designers with their signature handbags, we get giddy for new designers offering handbags that we must have. It does not happen often that there is a bag that I see that I absolutely MUST HAVE.

There are parts of the Sonia Rykiel Emma Crystal-Embellished Tote that I like, and then there are the parts that I don’t. I usually have a bit of both with all the bags that I review, but the dichotomy between what I love and what I hate with this one is so huge that I’ve got to split this one in to two parts.

Girls, I know I’m not going to be popular for this one. I’m probably not going to gain any respect from any of you for my opinion on the Marc Jacobs Iconic Glitter Robert. Am I ok with that?

Megs with Ferragamo. Stunning couple.

Buy the Salvatore Ferragamo Convertible Satchel via Saks for $1890.

In my opinion, the Burberry Westcott Shoulder Bag is a very clear case of a bag that looks much better in person than it does online. This is the best picture I could find to see the immense detail of the bag’s construction, but it still looks stiff and kind of messy, don’t you think?

Sometimes I see a bag and it takes me forever to figure out what it reminds me of. Is it another bag? An inanimate object? Someone I know? It can be hard to put your finger on it when you see so many bags every day.

What comes to your mind when you think of LA? Celebs? Hot clubs? Posh restaurants? Fashion? Beach? No matter what you think of, what you should add to your list of LA-isms is emerging designers. As I already mentioned, toward the end of last year I had a chance to meet with some amazing LA based designers.

Believe it or not, Pursebloggers, there are some circumstances under which I would be ok with the Zimmerman Stud Bag. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe, because it’s pretty much a monstrosity as it is.
