We’ve already raved about the qualities of Beirn’s unique and exotic medium: the watersnake. Am I going to do any different right now? To be brutally honest, no. However, I’m am here to make you aware of a different shape that’s available in Beirn’s watersnake.

Every once in awhile, I see an article of clothing, a pair of shoes, or something, anything that makes me cringe and wonder “Why in the world would anyone desire to make something so; awkward?“.

That’s what happened when I spotted this Coach Julia Transparent Op Art Logo Tote on the Nordstrom website.

Cleobella is the answer for boho recessionistas looking for a trendy-but-broken-in bag, one that’s of a certain quality. Their prices are generally low, as far as designer bags are concerned, and the leather is always what I like to call “Williamsburg-worn.” That is, the leather has that worn look favored by alternative hipsters one often runs into in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Just when we thought Tory Burch had all but put her famed logo on a shelf and closed the door on it, it comes back. But luckily for us, it’s not in the form of one giant logo placed smack dab in the centre of an equally giant tote.

We’ve covered this Bottega Veneta Woven Zip Wallet before, when Megs was considering getting it as a replacement for her LV Zip Around Wallet. As even a cursory glance and click around the blog will confirm that our love for Bottega Veneta has grown epically since Megs penned that post more than a year ago.

The fact is that, while this is an adorable bag by my own standards (which tend towards all things that look like they could have been made by some country artisan) there’s a problem. The kitschy, corny respelling of the famous Brazilian beach town irks me, and I’m sure it does the same for fellow spelling enthusiasts.

You see, the names that designers give their handbags are for a reason. They don’t just pick them out of a hat (well, maybe some do- but that’s a topic for another time). So this Rag & Bone Railroad Tote actually means something.

If you haven’t yet seen the newest teeny tiny Foley + Corinna City bags, then make your way to your nearest Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, or Saks Fifth Avenue as soon as possible to take a peek”” within reason, of course.

At first glance, you think it’s all fun and bubbles, don’t you? But the fact is that the Nordstrom Ruffle Clutch is actually much cooler than it seems. Why? Because the ruffles aren’t made of a go-to girly material, like chiffon or even a light taffeta.

Belstaff is one of those awesome English brands (well, it’s Italian-owned now), a younger and hipper brother of brands with the coveted coat of arms of a member of the Royal Family. Who doesn’t want to be a purveyor to the Queen, like Smythton or Launer?
