I find myself often thinking about whether or not a non-leather bag can be worth big bucks. I’ve come to varying conclusions – if it’s covered in Swarovski, then maybe. If it’s entirely handmade, maybe. If it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, maybe. And despite the fact that I really like the Lanvin Calisson Woven Satin Bag, I don’t think I could pay $2600 for something made of such a delicate fabric.

Today is a great day. First of all, it has finally stopped raining. It’s been raining down here in South Florida for the past few days. Although the rain is usually received with a warm welcome, it is a friendly reminder that the rainy season is on it’s way. But for now, I will focus on the gorgeous blue sky and put the thoughts about rain on the back burner.

Lanvin Happy Square Silk Bag 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).

Lanvin Gourmet 22 Faubourg ToteCanvas: how much are we willing to pay for it? I found myself wondering that when I saw the Lanvin Gourmet 22 Faubourg Tote today. My initial reaction was that it was adorable and French in a wonderful way, and that it would be great with a white top and jeans. My second reaction was, “It’s $680. What is it made out of?

These days you can look totally chic on your way to and from the gym. My problem is that when I leave a work out, my hair looks like a total scary mess (lots of random curling etc), my face is red, my body is tired, and my clothes most def do not smell great. I see a celeb photographed leaving a workout and they look stunning, each piece of hair in place, big smile, makeup, and ready for a paparazzi snap.

Lanvin Metallic Montrogueil HandbagSleek sophistication at its finest, the Lanvin Metallic Montrogueil Handbag features a sheer metallic gold leather on a stunning structured bag. Lanvin has hit big in the past year, with simple bags that show style and class. As we all know, metallic is still in for spring/summer and this light gold metallic is a stunning rendition of the trend. There is a turnlock closure and a structured zippered bottom compartment to store the not so readily available necessities (perfect spot for medicine you must travel with, epi pen, and anything else ugly or not chic!).

A Lanvin handbag is an easy way to say, “I’m a classy chick.” This Lanvin bag says, “I’m a classy chick but I can rock a giant silver chain.” I love this bag. I wish it were mine. The subtly textured inky blue is such a rich color. It makes me think of royal satins and watercolors and midnight. The hardware is absolutely perfect.

What is up with Jessica Simpson being the handbag guru of all time? Seriously if I owned about 1/546 of what she owns, my life would feel complete. She seems to be a major handbag and purse trend setter. Right when some fashionista realizes that studs are in, they also realize Jessica already is sporting them. To be a minister’s daughter must be nice.
