Loewe Amazona Poppy Sheep Bag

Well, the Loewe Poppy Sheep Amazona Bag looks cuddly, for lack of a better word.

For some reason, my first thought upon seeing this bag (which is part of Loewe’s Fall 2013 collection, on pre-order via Moda Operandi through March 28) was that if I were to ever be stranded at an airport, it would be the bag I’d want to have with me.

Givenchy Small Antigona Architect Satchel

In general, I’m a big fan of the Givenchy Antigona Bag. Not only is it a celeb favorite, but it looks super slick in basic black, which is always a hallmark of a strong design. It’s also come in some great non-solid versions over the seasons, including a scarlet-accented black calf hair version that I tried to track down for months after it had obviously already sold out.

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.
