Rachel Zoe saved her own money and on a trip to Paris bought her first designer handbag: a Louis Vuitton half-moon shaped messenger bag.

Last night the Juicy Couture Bags & Bubbly event I hosted took place at the Juicy Couture 5th Ave store. Let me start by telling you how different the Juicy handbag line is from what I usually expected from the brand.

It seems as though Kanye West‘s recent advent to Twitter has been mighty controversial – some people think he’s hysterical, some people think he tweets too much, and still others have yet to get over that whole Taylor Swift thing.

My current obsession is the hot pink Botkier Venice Hobo. Not only is it designed with supple lambskin, but it also rocks a pop of hot pink color. The Ad campaign photo is one of my favorites, simple yet striking.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I am thrilled! Not only am I a sucker for a day devoted to telling those close to you that you love them, but also my anniversary is a week later. February really is a month filled with love.

NAP new bags

Since I’ve been looking at the Fall/Winter handbag landing page at Net-a-Porter every day for months, I thought it was kind of a big deal when they suddenly changed all of the bags in it in the past few days. Perhaps this is only interesting to me since I’m constantly staring at it, but I thought you guys might like to see what’s ahead for the new season at NAP as well.

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. The gears of fashion grind slowly at times, but it’s always exciting to see things land at retail that you first noticed during their initial public appearance.

Winter Whites

Jimmy Choo HM 2

We had a fairly lively debate a few months ago when the Jimmy Choo for H&M collaboration was announced, and now we’ve finally got a comprehensive look at what the partnership will yield when it hits store shelves November 14.

The collection includes shoes, boots, handbags, jewelry, and a few items of clothing, all done in the slightly 80s glam-punk look that Jimmy Choo has been fond of lately.

Jade Handbags

In the past few days the internet is a buzz about the latest must have nail polish, Chanel Jade Nail Polish. This polish was seen on the runway months ago and the speculation began if that color would be produced. It has been and is being sold online at Chanel now (better get it while you can).
