Amanda and I have been racking our brains trying to figure out what to write about this past week. The fashion world is in a lull as preparations for fashion week are finalizing and stores are starting to shed their spring collections and bring in anticipation of fall and winter, which means that there’s little relevant stock to be discussed. That is why this week is perfect for seven days of giveaways and a little fill in the blank fun.
Fill In The Blank(Page 4)
Structure can be a great design element when implemented properly. In fact, some of the most timeless bags feature a bit of structure to their design, like the Hermes Birkin and Chanel Classic Flap. Yet there are times when a structured bag simply does not work, and this may be one of those times.
The Jimmy Choo Catherine Leopard-Print Satchel uses soft yet structured leather which is offset by leopard-print calf hair.
Burberry Mini Check Clutch, $795 via Neiman Marcus.
Combining the iconic check pattern with the fashion-forward belt buckle wrapped body, the Burberry Mini Check Clutch is an attention grabber. I like seeing the classic plaid pattern broken up by the leather and the way Burberry implements this gives their design an edgy appearance.
Help out and fill in the blank so we can see what you think of this bag.
You know how much we love to play fill in the blank with you! I saw this Nancy Gonzalez bag and felt stumped. With a great shape and of course gorgeous exotic skin, it is hard for me to decide what I think about the translucent blue Caiman fuscus crocodile skin.
I immediately started thinking mermaid and have a hard time thinking anything else.
It’s time for another game of Fill in the Blank, ladies! You all know the drill by now: We pick a bag with a strong aesthetic point of view, you tell us exactly what words come to mind when you see it, good or bad. Today’s subject of discussion? The CC Skye Town and Country Satchel. Tell us what you think, and if you like it, you can grab it on sale at Bloomingdale’s for $525.
Marc Jacobs Snake Clutch, $1095 via NAP
Without looking at the name of this clutch or a close-up image, you might miss that a snake design is separating the raspberry suede and orange leather colorblocking. What makes the snake design stand out even more is the fact that it has a face and is created with actual python, which keeps the design legit while also making me feel a wee bit slimy.
It has been a few weeks since we had you partake in a fill in the blank post and this Monday seems to be dragging so it is time for a little fun. Right when I laid my eyes on this bag I knew it would be a perfect post to have you share your opinion. We do not see many Roberto Cavalli handbags on PurseBlog and that is quite all right, since they never seem to be my style.
I’m a noted Balenciaga fangirl and would gladly carry either of the woven, multicolored Balenciaga Papier Cannage Imprime Totes, although the lighter of the two is my favorite. I have a feeling that this is going to be a controversial bag for some of our readers, though, which makes it all the more fun for a rousing game of Fill in the Blank.
