For this Viewer’s Choice Monday, let’s start off with the bad. Many of you over at the forum know about Noriko’s love of Christian Dior handbags, but this Dior is not really catching her eye all that much. The Dior Vintage Logo Large Shopper is a bit overwhelming for both Noriko and my own taste. Maybe you will feel different about the mix of vintage Dior logo jacquard canvas paired with smooth grained brown leather.

I know that animal prints can sometimes be in style and by cute, but also can be seriously over the top. How about NO, Dior!!! What the heck is going on with this bag?! The Dior Saddle bags have come out in a plethora of styles and varieties, but some are just major no-no’s. This is definitely one of them. Feast your eyes on the Dior Pony Leopard Saddle Pouch.
If you don’t know yet, white is the “it” color for spring. And like I have said before and I am sure will repeat, white is not always easily wearable for many reasons. Take Mischa Barton for example. She made us all remember why wearing white pants can be risky. And by us, I mean women. But we can throw some white into our wardrobe in other ways.
While shopping today I realized that all not all logo bags are created equal. If any of you recall, I’m not a huge fan of logo bags. Actually my mom is even more conservative than me. If a bag has a logo on it, my mom runs the other way. She doesn’t want people to know what she carries. But then again when she is carrying Gucci, Prada, and Chloe some people will most definitely eye ball and recognize her bags (just don’t tell her that- she is living in a dream world :-)).
Not only is she absolutely stunning, she also has quite a sense of style. Who am I speaking of you may ask? Why none other than the South African princess, Charlize Theron. Recently, the blond bombshell appeared at the Aeon Flux Hollywood Premiere looking better than ever and sporting none other than a Christian Dior clutch. The Dior Detective Velvet Wrist Clutch perfectly accented Theron’s dress and overall look adding a little deep rouge glam.
We all know and love the Dior Detective bag. I haven’t been hearing about the bag as much lately, but I still love the shape and style of this bag. Just for all of you Detective lovers, there is a new spring color awaiting you. Why not be a little bold and daring and opt for a light green colored hit bag?
Sometimes I want a slouchy bag to offset and outfit, but some days a structured shape is what I’d like. If you are into the structure, into flowers, and into Dior, then you may be into the Dior Embroidered Flowers Frame Bag. And again, I was tipped off by Noriko to have this lovely bag added to Viewer’s Choice Monday!
The Dior saddle bags have been quite the hit. The styles and materials very so much, that if you like the shape of the bag you are almost guaranteed to like a design at some point. And for this Viewer’s Choice Monday, one of our leading ladies on the forum, Noriko, has set her sights on the Dior Japanese Patchwork Saddle Bag.
To logo or not to logo; that is the question. In many cases, I say ‘Nay’, but in some cases I say ‘Yay’. So let’s see who are our logo fans out there… and who are not. For this Parisian-chic structured hobo, I say “Bellissimo”! The Dior Diorissimo Hobo looks structured, fun, and logofied. The hobo features the classic Dior Logo jacquard canvas and is trimmed with leather.
This was just too good to pass it up. Christian Dior‘s John Galliano presented their Spring ’06 collection with an event garlanded with the kind of pomp and power only the French can bestow upon the business of fashion – as Style.com’s Sarah Mower described the important fashion event in Paris’ Grand Palais.
As we don’t care as much for the dresses (they are fantastic nonetheless), the full focus of our attention definitely aims for the dazzling Dior Saddle bag, which was presented in a new, softly folded variation that we had yet to see.
