What struck me the most about seeing the Be&D Studded Kitty Satchel and Be&D Gia Satchel in quick succession was how different the two bags were for being released by the same independent brand in the same season.
Be&D Handbags and Purses
With the roaring popularity of leopard print seemingly chugging into spring unabated (Givenchy, anyone?), it looks like haircalf bags are here to stay. For those of you who wince at furry things of any type, that’s too bad. For those of us who like the slick, neat look of a good haircalf bag, this development couldn’t find us any more pleased.
While the military trend has mostly seemed to stick with solid colors, Be & D and some other brands are bringing in camouflage print. And to be honest, I kind of sort of totally adore it.
Camo-print has such a negative connotation to so many people, believing it is overly masculine and as far from fashion forward as possible.

I covered the Be&D Genesis first during NY Fashion Week, when Bryan Boy, Olivia Palermo, and Mena Suvari were spotted carrying it. I will be posting more of the available options, but wanted to note that the classic black version Bryan Boy carried is now available online at Bloomingdale’s.
*Note: Saks had labeled this bag as the Dodstock, but it is actually the Woodstock*
Firstly, I must apologize for the extremely slow start to the week on PurseBlog. You woke up, checked PurseBlog, and saw no new posts. That is because when my alarm went off this morning I somehow convinced myself that it is Sunday so I could turn off my alarm and sleep as long as I wanted.
