Tory Burch toughens up her line of handbags with a bit of rocker studded chic. We love these studded Tory Burch handbags. There are many options for studded handbags this fall and Tory’s collection fuses classic silhouettes with contrast gold pyramid studs. The tailored shapes will pair nicely with a daytime outfit consisting of this fall’s uniform of leggings and ankle boots. Available in a variety of designs the Tory Burch group of studded bags includes several styles available in black and cognac. (more…)
Look at what we have here. This is the kind of bag that I actually find myself yearning for yet I can’t quite put my finger on why. I think it is the intricate detailing that goes into the Lanvin Happy Mini Pop Satin Bag that has lured me in. I don’t have a plethora of mustard colored items in my closet because sometimes I feel as though the color looks a bit drab. But this is definitely not the case here.
The stitch detailing throughout is gorgeous. This is a look that can be executed perfectly on a small bag like this one. Now, add the chainlink handle that is woven with grosgrain ribbon and boasts a floral crosage and this look is just perfection. And you know me, I love when handbags can be used in a variety of ways. Whether you see it right now or not, this bag is actually rather versatile. A clear favorite would be pairing the bag with one of your fancier outfits. However, I’d love to sling it over my shoulder as I wear a pair of boyfriend jeans and a white t-shirt while letting the bag speak for itself. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1240.
Ohh it has hit me. I have a new love and it is this sexy little bag. It has all the makings of a great bag, it is chic and sexy and metallic and I love it! The Lanvin Happy Partage Metallic Lame Bag includes everything that a great handbag should.
The gunmetal color offers the perfect tinge of metallic which continues to be a must have for a handbag collection. I am feeling at a loss for words, because I just adore this bag. The gold-tone chain and leather shoulder strap gives a shabby chic vibe, that it totally rocking in my book. I just want it. I don’t need it, but I want it. Really badly. It will rock skinnys and a tee during the day and dress up your LBD at night. I attempted to put place myself on a handbag ban, but I could cave for this Lanvin bag. Buy through Net A Porter for $1915.
Infuse a little rock glam into your look with a studded clutch handbag. This trend combines black leather of various textures with stud details for added embellishment with an edge. We are loving the various applications of chrome and even black on black studs.The “Moto” clutch from Botkier resembles a mini biker jacket translated into a clutch with its zippers, studs and flyaway tasseled zipper pulls. The Kettle peace clutch sends a summer of love vibe with a peace sign onto an envelope design with zipper closure.
Taking studs to the max, Sonia Rykiel covers one entire side of her clutch with circular studs and tops it off with a tassel zipper pull. The Burberry studded plates clutch is a bit more subtle with an elongated zip clutch touting black on black studs for a more subtle translation of this handbag trend. The Treesje London clutch combines shiny patent leather and touts a cool graphic edge with randomly placed round flat studs. Pair any of these studded clutches with a pair of destroyed skinny jeans, loose oversized tee and cage sandals for cutting edge look. Or to dress up your evening look, a LBD would complement a black leather studded clutch as well.

We have all been doing it. Sitting here getting rather bored with spring and summer bags and waiting
patiently impatiently for the fall and winter bags to arrive. Net A Porter wants to give us a sneak peek, letting us know that new bags will be on their way and sharing a few of them with us. The array of designer handbags includes a cream python Chloe Paraty, a Bottega Veneta intricate number, the Alexander McQueen Knuckle Buster Clutch we featured this week, a studded Louboutin clutch, and a funky McQueen foldover bag with a glove attached among others. All I can say is FINALLY!
Again this fall the leopard print has it marks on handbags of all shapes and sizes this season. Love it or leave it, leopard print handbags are not for everyone, yet the trend returns each year with out fail. Not to be overused, leopard print handbags add visual interest to your favorite LBD or all black ensemble.
LeSportsac‘s durable fabrics, whimsical prints and modern palettes are always a great combination. The LeSportsac Leigh bag in silver is no exception. The oversized profile and lightweight ripstop fabric make this tote the perfect tote for carrying all of your summer vacation essentials. The interior is made of 100% nylon. That is it won’t be ruined if you accidentally forget about your wet bathing suit from last weekend. The rolled handles and wide shoulder strap make climbing up the hundredth step to your hotel in Cinque Terre a breeze. We also love the metallic silver color which makes us feel like a real jetsetter.
We are loving so many Lanvin handbag styles this season. Our obsession du jour is the Lanvin Reporter leather bag. It is a luxurious combination of two distinct textures accented by an adjustable gold tone chain strap. The contrast of the navy blue distressed leather against the shiny black patent is a unique combination that is tied (literally) together with a grosgrain ribbon woven thru the gold-tone chain strap. The boxy compact shape makes the perfect accompaniment to sophisticated linen pencil-skirts or sultry summer dresses. To keep all of your essentials in order there are inside compartments and a detachable Lanvin logo key fob.

Ok folks, it is Friday. And over at Bag that Style we do the best we can to identify as many bags as humanly possible. But sometimes we just don’t know what the heck a celeb is carrying. Perhaps the angle is bad or there isn’t enough of the bag visible to actually identify it. Other times, I’ll be honest, we just don’t know! So if you are anything like me, you are watching that clock tick and you are waiting for the weekend to start. Whether you have big time plans or you are simply ready to veg out, I have a way to help pass the time!
Head over to Bag that Style and check out some awesome celeb images. There are so many fun pics to check out and even if you can’t identify any of the bags, pass some time looking at celebs you love (or perhaps hate)!
As I have mentioned before, I love surprises, yet I have a very hard time keeping secrets to myself. (Remember the Linea Pelle giveaway teaser?) Well, this past weekend I traveled up to DC and surprised a group of my friends. The looks on their faces were priceless. Now, flying to DC from South Florida this time of year, there is a good chance the weather is pretty similar. DC, like South Florida, was gorgeous last weekend. I had a great, bright, handbag to tote with me, but I couldn’t help but think about how I wished I brought along a bright, bold clutch.
When I saw the Marni Violet Suede Frame Bag, initially I thought this bag would fit what I was looking for. You can carry it by the handle, or use the foldover to its fullest and carry the bag as a clutch. I am a huge fan of suede, but is suede a bad idea in the heat? I would hate to have a lovely adult beverage in hand then go to pick up this bag only to have the suede bleed on my hand. Gross! So, perhaps it wouldn’t be the bag of choice while outside, but it certainly would be gorgeous in hand as you check out a show. The push lock closure and pleating help give a little bit of structure to the otherwise slouchy-esque bag. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1090.

Made from the softest buttery letter around, the stud embellished shoulder bag has a long skinny shoulder strap and fringe along the bottom. Our favorite detail is the giant tassel zipper pull.
