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.
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.
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!
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.
Just because Earth Day has passed, that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to keep the idea of Earth Day in your mind. Get fabulous and indulge your globetrotter fantasy while supporting fair trade products such as these fair trade handbags and fair trade totes. Fair trade products help third world artisans to make a living wage while they create one of a kind designs using traditional techniques.
Sonia Rykiel may be best known for her knitwear and her namesake ’90s tune by Malcom McClaren, “Who the Hell is Sonia Rykiel?” Today we are swooning over her stud fringe handbag. 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.
Everybody is talking about Proenza Schouler. Even though the “it” bag craze has died down, there are still designers that are churning out handbags that are must have’s. The newest addition to this group is Proenza Schouler bags. Celebrities have been flocking to this line and sporting the coveted Proenza Schouler PS1 around town (Mary Kate Olsen and Leighton Meester are two fans).
Metallic handbags have made yet another appearance this season. On the spring ’09 runways everyone from Prada to Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga garnished their models in shimmery head to toe gold, silver or bronze metallics. Handbags are a clever way to embrace metallics, but keep in mind “less is more”. Just a hint of shimmer is all you need.
St. Patrick’s Day has become every single persons holiday. On this day, everyone is Irish. Not hard to imagine why. It is a day with all the excuses in the world to drink pints of green beer and tell people to Kiss you, because you are Irish. I truly am Irish, although now married to an Eastern European who refuses to wear green today (bah-hum-bug).
