Luella Large Beanie Bowling Bag

Luella bags have not been spoken about recently on the site, but there is a new season bag that needs to be deemed fab or drab from the house of Luella. The Luella Large Beanie Bowling Bag sports black leather along with ponyskin. On the front, two large tassels and a zip fastening can be found. Are you a fan of the tassels or are they too much for you? Gold hardware ads a nice touch to the black along with black suede lining on the inside. Two small open pouches, a small zipper pouch and two press stud pouches are also inside additions. I can think of two main reasons many will not like this bag: 1) the ponyskin and 2) the tassels. Buy via NAP for $795.

jJimmy Choo Alex Suede Shoulder Bag1

Finally, some fall bags are popping up here and the vast space we know as the internet. The Jimmy Choo Alex Suede Shoulder Bag showcases lush brown or black suede with watersnake trim. Stitched detail on the front along with double straps add to the outside appeal. Quite a few designers are opting for lilac lining, and I love it. Completely feminine and a refreshing option when you open your purse. But does this new Jimmy Choo release do it for you?

Jimmy Choo Taytan Clutch

Jimmy Choo continues to make a place for itself in the designer handbag world. A new release, the Jimmy Choo Taytan Clutch shows off sultry red nappa leather with watersnake trim and beautiful gold hardware. There is a buckle detailed strap around the base. Jimmy Choo bags are notorious for the buckle detailing (maybe comes easy to them since they are shoe gods), and this clutch has three buckles on the front of the bag. A flap closure and chain link shoulder strap finish this bag off. So many of us have been head over heels for the Jimmy Choo Foldover Clutch, but will the Taytan make its way into your hearts?

The shape of the bag is fresh, with a pleated front, tabbed side, and zip top closure. Dimensions are 13″H x 14 4/5″W x 7″D. Via Saks for $1670.

Vera Wang Strapless Dress

The good thing about dresses is that with so many different styles and shapes, most everyone can find one that is flattering on their body. I have found some stunning dresses for summer and really have been drawn to the pocketed dressed. Although some pocket dresses tend to make me look wide where I prefer not to, some are perfect. From Vera Wang Lavendar Collection, the Vera Wang Strapless Dress is light and flirty and perfect for summer. The outside pockets that fall under the empire line waist can be flattering for many. I love the fitted bust which features ruching. Via NAP for $430.

Be and D Crawford Hobo Bag

I am a fan of black and white, but sometimes the colors can be overpowering when put together on one surface. Is this the case on the Be & D Crawford Hobo Bag? This handbag sports black and white zigzag pattern on the already known Crawford Hobo shape along with a leather shoulder strap. Paired with brass hardware and rivets along the strap, this handbag has a funky flair. Not much else to this large hobo other than suede lining and a press stud closure. Via Net A Porter for $1545.

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and caramel may tickle your senses if they come from a brand like Godiva or Lindt, but do they combine to make a delectable handbag?

A different look in coloring, but all the same materials and style, the baby Spy has gold hardware, double handles, a wristlet pull tab, and measures 15½”W X 9″H X 7″D. Available via Saks for $1280.

Prada Bowler Handbag

Prada hit huge with their Grauffre bags and is still trying to keep a good thing going. Introducing slightly antiqued and shaded pebbled leather, Prada has released a variety of Bowler Handbags. Saks has the natural tan version of the Prada Leather Bowler which will be available in the next few months. This bag is sure to be a hit, sporting antiqued pebbled leather along with gold tone hardware and a removable chain shoulder strap. Available for pre-order via Saks Fifth Ave for $2,050. Prada appears to feel confident that the Bowler’s will be one of the next huge trends, therefor they have created different renditions. My favorite versions are the Prada Patchwork Bowlers with fringe (can be seen below). Typically, I would not be drawn to a fringe bag, but the fringe strap is just enough and makes this bag overly fashionable and chic. What do you think, Fab or Drab?

Devi Kroell Crystal Wooden ClutchFab Sugar has reported that the woodsy accessories and the green movement are making an impact in the fashion world. It can be seen on a clutch like the Devi Kroell Crystal Wooden Clutch. This clutch shows that wood is not only used for floors, pencils, and paper, but can make a great looking clutch too. There are jewels bedazzling the wooden box clutch and a gold clasp closure. A different look, but is it the look for you?
