Lambertson Truex Lizard Bags for Spring 09
Left: Lambertson Truex Chantal | Top: Lambertson Truex Signature Framed Clutch | Right: Lambertson Truex Small Paxton

For most of you, winter is in full force. Our friends in Ohio rubbed in our face that they had a snow day at Ohio State yesterday, which is literally unheard of at The Ohio State University. Vlad is flying up to Ohio tomorrow for his bachelor party and will have to embrace the frigid temperatures, but I am perfectly content laying on our roof top deck for the weekend and soaking up the Florida winter weather, which is hovering around 80 degrees and sunny.

Spring is on the northerners minds and I am always looking for the new collections of bags. One of our favorite design duos out of NYC is Richard Lambertson and John Truex from Lambertson Truex. We got to play with three different Spring 09 bags which are all showing off beautiful natural ring lizard. Per usual, the bags are meticulously designed and these three clutches are all perfect additions to your handbag collection. Vlad and I have a mini but growing LT bag collection (we never shared our November purchases with you!). What I love about LT bags is their timelessness. Season after seasons their bags will remain wearable, current, and stylish.

Three different shapes, sizes, and looks are found on this trio of Lambertson Truex clutches in natural ring lizard. The natural ring lizard gives the bags some dimension. There is something about the look that pops out and grabs you, but it is not like other skin patterns that is distracting. It is almost calming. Among the three designs, each offers something new for the wearer.

The Lambertson Truex Signature Framed Clutch is more of an evening bag but could easily be used as a day clutch. We like it because of the signature LT clasp opening, zipper pocket on the inside, and the fact that it is much more spacious than it appears. This clutch is available at Lambertson Truex boutiques (888.800.0970), New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, for $1990.

The medium sized option is the Lambertson Truex Chantal which offers a chain handle and a small LT push lock. We like this one because of the slim body and the spacious functional interior. The inside opens to show two compartments, one with zipped pocket and one compartment with a separator which has slim slot for money and receipts. The chain link shoulder strap is removable. $4,300 by special order at Lambertson Truex boutiques, New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas or call 888.800.0970.

The last style is one of my favorites. The Lambertson Truex Small Paxton features the recognizable belt buckle fastening with a magnetic closure on the front. The inside of the bag is large and practical, offering a zipped pocket and two open pockets. And this bag also has an optional chain shoulder strap. As much as I love the Paxton in ring lizard, my heart belongs to the Cornflower Blue Crocodile version. Buy this Paxton for $3,900 also at Lambertson Truex boutiques.
