Back in the middle of 2007, I found a couple of Christian Louboutin bags that were ultimately unsightly. At the time I asked Christian Louboutin to stick to what he knows, shoes. Luckily he both listened and did not listen to me: updating his handbag collection to make the beautiful pieces we knew he had in him and make his name a contender in the handbag world.

I am not a party girl. Far from it, in fact. I’d much rather stay in, and if I must go to a fiesta, I prefer it to be of the fancy, not-many-people-type. Why? So I can dress up, of course.

It’s here, it’s here! YAAAAY! The Fendi Peekaboo Bicolor Top Handle is here!

We first saw this bag as a highlight of Fendi’s Spring 2010 runway show in Milan, and now it’s finally available for purchase.

I’ve used my time visiting my parents over the past week or so check out a sampling of the best malls in Atlanta, and it seems like everywhere I went, I saw the entire Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal line sitting on shelves and hanging on racks, just waiting for people to scoop it up.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Whether you like their bags or not, Valentino does the best detail work in the business. There’s not a major designer that can touch them when it comes to taking regular (albeit extremely supple and wonderful) leather and turning it into something that is far more than the sum of its parts.

I don’t think that I exactly like the Diane Von Furstenberg Hayworth Clutch, really, but I’ve got to say that I respect its enthusiasm. Is that sort of similar to liking it? Maybe.

There is one word to describe how I feel about this bag: conflicted. I’ve been loving so many Diane von Furstenberg bags as of late, that I find myself EXPECTING to love the next one I see.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are just days away from 2010. Can you believe it? I remember being younger and never quite understanding adults saying “Where has this year gone?”, yet now that I am, I guess an adult, I get it.

This is not the first time we are seeing Valentino using a bow with their handbag design. In fact, I am not finding fault with the bow design, in fact, I am quite a fan of it.
