Guess who is back on my radar majorly? Gucci. It is not that I lost love for Gucci, I just wasn’t as enthralled. I would be happy to find a great bag but was not searching Gucci’s website expecting to find it.

The Real Housewives of New York City just aren’t much for subtlety or tact, are they? Last night’s episode was all about messages delivered badly, and when these women screw something up, they go whole-hog, so to speak.

In the first Sex and the City movie there was the pivotal moment where Lily, Charlotte’s daughter, takes Big’s call on Carrie’s cell phone and then places the phone in her Judith Leiber cupcake clutch. Soon after it is evident that Big has cold feet and can not get out of his car to go through with the wedding.

As I mentioned over on PurseBlog Savvy this morning also, I went to Kelly Cutrone’s book-signing in Atlanta (look for a post on that on Monday) and had a lot of fun scoping out what everyone was wearing.

Wednesday night, I went to Kelly Cutrone’s book signing at a Border’s in Atlanta (I’ll have a full post about that on Monday at PurseBlog), and, predictably, there were a lot of interesting looks going on among the over 700 people that turned up to hear Cutrone answer questions and get a moment of face time with her.

When Apple floods the market with another ingenious mainstream product, the launch guarantees two things. Firstly, it will be tremendously successful. Over 300,000 sold on the first day attests to that. Secondly, a plethora of accessories is going to follow very closely.

Running an online fashion magazine about handbags can be tricky at times, since handbags are only a sliver of the fashion world. Luckily, women (and men!) love handbags as much as we do and designers continue bringing us new purses to talk about.

Everyone remembers my Alexander Wang Rocco love and letdown story. My returning this bag still haunts me a bit, as I rarely *rarely* return bags and this one held such a special place in my heart but fell short when it came to my expectations.

Now, this is a gorgeous bag. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this Tory Burch creation were the countless quotes I learned back in high school. They weren’t just any quotes, but quotes about how important and crucial simplicity in life is.

I usually don’t write about the non-leather bags from Marc by Marc Jacobs for one very specific reason: I think that the line’s leather bags are a much, much better deal. They do a great job pricing them under $550, and the leathers that they choose are almost uniformly soft and supply.
