Sophia Webster Azealia Striped Python Clutch

Brightly colored handbags always make me smile because I equate vibrant colors with warm weather and sunshine. This clutch is no different; right when it hit the virtual Net-A-Porter shelves, I began staring. This bag features a variety of sunny brights, all striped together to make a rainbow pattern.

Givenchy Star-Embellished Minaudiere

As smartphone screens (and by extension, the smartphones they’re attached to) get larger, it seems like clutches are getting smaller. Sure, I can take the case off my iPhone and wedge it into most of them, but then I have a naked iPhone!

Alexander McQueen De Manta printed silk-satin clutch

I’ve got a major crush on many of the upcoming Alexander McQueen bags, but this bag is not on that list. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like this clutch – the shape is quite beautiful – but it’s not on my want-it-now list.

Dolce and Gabbana Miss Kendra Straw Shopper

Winter is upon us, with temperatures that chill us to the bone, but fret not – resort is starting to hit stores. Every season, I wrack my brain trying to make sense of the timeline that brings bikinis into stores in January, but it’s not dictated by the same logic that the rest of us use.

Pierre Hardy Color-block suede shoulder bag

We love having a little Fill in the Blank fun, and I realized I haven’t filled this category in a while. As much as I love talking about bags, I love hearing what you all think about them as well, and there is no better way to have you sound off than a Fill in the Blank post.

Yves Saint Laurent ChYc Medium Python Tote Bag

I’ve been open and honest about my love of the extremely beautiful Yves Saint Laurent Chyc Bag. This bag is easy to love – everything about it is beautiful, but also a bit demure. There are so many amazing colors being released, but I don’t remember seeing a fully exotic version until now.

Lanvin Happy Medium Metallic Canvas Shoulder Bag 1

It’s been a decade since Alber Elbaz joined Lanvin, and since his start the brand has taken a turn for the better. More people recognize Lanvin and consider it a brilliant collection, myself included. To celebrate his first ten years, Lanvin is launching a celebratory capsule collection.

Tom Ford Skunk Fur Minaudiere

We’ve talked about Tom Ford bags a bit on PurseBlog, and it seems that our team has mixed feelings. I tend to like the direction of the line, while Amanda thinks that the designs are lacking. Just goes to show you – our taste is similar, but it’s definitely not identical.

Jimmy Choo Biker Fox and Floral Suede Bag

Oh, Jimmy Choo.

On a certain level, you have to respect the brand for doggedly pursuing its over-the-top aesthetic in spite of the fact that fur, fringe, embroidery and purple suede, when all grouped together on the same handbag, are objectively a bad idea.

Prada Madras Evening Bag

Ladies and gents, I’ve got a major crush on a Prada bag that seems like it makes little sense to add to my collection but I feel like I may dream about it… often. Over the weekend, the annual Governor’s Island Jazz Age Lawn Party took place in NYC, and while I missed out on stopping by, I closely followed images of friends that partook in this 1920s-themed weekend.
