Not long after the annual summer release of a new iPhone comes an inevitable parade of ways to personalize and protect your new gadget. Those options range from rubber cases that can be had for $19.99 at your local Best Buy to Louis Vuitton monogram sheaths that cost more than the phone itself (with a two-year contract, of course), and the prospect of choosing one can be quite the task indeed for style-conscious gadget-lovers.
Fendi Handbags and Purses(Page 6)
We got a peek at Fendi‘s Fall 2010 runway handbags in March, but now that they’ve started to trickle out for retail pre-order, the details of the collection are becoming even more clear. What’s perhaps most striking, however, is how much the collection, now dubbed “Classico,” hasn’t changed.
Accessories are often altered somewhere in the runway-to-retail journey, but the clean lines and clear midcentury influence that we saw on Fendi’s runway are here in almost completely unadulterated form.
Part of the idea of Want it Wednesday is writing about things that are either super expensive, unattainable, or something I would typically not buy (for a variety of other reasons). For example, Victoria Beckham’s crocodile Birkin is way out of my budget and probably very hard to track down, but I covered it and still dream about it.
This week’s Want it Wednesday brings a tote that I would not ordinarily buy myself with a bikini that I absolutely adore.
I think it’s important to look at this bag for exactly what it is: a novelty item, designed to get attention and make people talk, and also a good collectible for those that love Fendi and want to add something really unique to their stash. Evaluating it like a regular bag is sort of besides the point.
The Fendi DIY Baguette Bag is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a woven, unfinished Fendi Baguette with everything you need to embroider your own bag.
Fendi pairs sassy with classy for a powerful and super chic bag. In fact, it speaks to me so much that I seriously want it. The last time I seriously wanted a Fendi bag was a long time ago, I actually have not purchased a Fendi bag since my Spy, which was a good 4 years ago. But now I am sitting here finding myself looking at a massive array of Fendi Peekaboo bags and getting a true and serious handbag itch.
We have a category for accessories that rarely gets used on PurseBlog. Apologies for neglecting a perfectly fitting category for our website. Today, that will change as I will bring you an accessory to discuss and make sure to continue bringing you designer accessories in the future.

I’ve got a confession to make before we talk about this bag: My favorite bag from my personal collection is a purple hobo. Mine’s Balenciaga instead of Fendi, but it’s safe to assume that I have a bit of bias when it comes to bags that look like the Fendi Mia Chain Strap Hobo. I’ve found my purple hobo to be so useful and easy to wear that imagining how many different outfits this bag could go with isn’t particularly hard.
I’ve never been one for embroidery in any form or context – it almost always manages to look too cheap or too twee or too bohemian for me, and the fact that it almost always features floral motifs doesn’t help. I’m also historically not much of a fan of Fendi, despite the fact that I’ve championed several of their bags recently.
If the brands that I normally make fun of continue to turn out impressive bag collections, what am I going to crack jokes about? With the second lovely presentation by Fendi in as many seasons, it looks like before I know it, the only time I’m going to get to be nasty and snarky is when Versace puts forth a new abomination against handbag design.
