When I think of Michael Kors, exotic materials do not seem to come to mind. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not an association. But today I have been hit by the Michael Kors beauty truck.
Let’s hop into this President’s Day with a little American spirit (here is where all of you who are politically correct may cringe a bit…) Nevertheless, a camouflage bag has a bit to do with President’s Day, don’t ya think?? Yea, just humor me… I have been really sick and all these meds can not be good for coherent sentences and thought processes. Starting off this holiday Monday is the Michael Kors Camo Desert Shoulder Bag. The bag is functional the style is funky. Along with the camo print, there is dark brown leather trim with tonal topstitching which is set off by golden hardware. For a little more storage, which I find I always need, there are two front buckle-flap pockets. The shoulder strap has ample room for you to adjust it to fit it loosely under your arm with golden clasps. Finishing off this bag is a drawstring top with studded leather loops, which ensures that your goodies will not fall out unless they are very very small. If you are into camo and into President’s Day, pre-order this bag via Bergdorf Goodman for $795.
First of all, I hope everyone stayed warm over the weekend. I know many parts of the US got pounded with snow and bitter cold temps. Because of that, I choose to lie around and only venture out for some Starbucks and shopping. While shopping I saw a huge display of Michael Kors shoes and then realized there were some handbags too. For the most part I associate Michael Kors with footwear, but there are some bags that can not be passed up. The Michael Kors Santorini Tote manifests itself in a chunky appearance but an overall simplistic color scheme and vibe. Because the weave is in, Kors decided to implement brown woven calfskin along with golden hardware for this tote. While the bag may be a bit much for some, the details are evident while not being far too overpowering. It all depends what side of the spectrum you are on. The handles are woven along with golden hardware rings and the bag is an open top. While I am not immediately drawn or not drawn to this bag (which measures 9 1/2″H x 15″W x 4″D), I figured it was a bag not to be passed up. Buy it via Neiman Marcus for $795.
$282 bucks via Zappos!
P.S. To those who follow our blog religiously, I’m sure you’ve noticed that there’s a new category! The Bag Deals cover affordable bags and deals on chic bags that deserve being mentioned and shared. I know we tend to cover bags of the expensive spectrum most of the time, this new category should bring some balance into things. ;)
I’m not sure if I could have said this better myself… Sadaf said, “In these times it is humbling to see celebrities like Heidi Klum carrying a under $300 bag from Michael by Michael Kors (okay, barely under $300 but at least you don’t need to be on a waiting list to get the bag). She had the color “leather luggage” and was using it as a combo diaper bag. Cute bag don’t you think?” I do love when bags are being carried because they are beautiful and versatile and not just because a celeb is carrying them. I think many of you will agree with this. The Michael Kors “Astor” Large Satchel is a beautiful bag fit for a star (with the not too shabby price tag). If you like to carry lots of your necessities (or not-so-necessities), this large satchel can help you tote your needs around town. Made of soft leather with beautifully seamed detail and nickel stud detail, Michael Kors brought in beauty with functionality. Some other features include a top two-way zip closure, and inside pockets; including inside zip, pouch and cell phone pockets. The dimensions are 14″ W x 10″ H x 5″ D, which makes this bag a pretty nice size. If any of you love this handbag just like Sadaf, head over to Macy*s and nab it for $298.
This lady you don’t see much of other than on 11 pm re-runs of Will and Grace– it is the lovely Debra Messing! Now I am a huge fan of the show- just love it. I love Jack and Will quite a bit more than Grace. I think Karen’s voice could drive anyone insane but she makes up for it in humor. Just love it. Grace, Debra Messing, was recently at Michael Kors with Michael himself showing off quite the beautiful clutch. I love it! I’m a sucker for big clutches and this one is quite a beauty. Debra is embracing the photographer but Michael seems to be staring off into space. Earth to Michael- the camera is over here!
Oh yea- if you can’t tell by the enormously obscuring atrocious watermark- this picture sure was taken by the UK Press. I can’t find this clutch on their site, but feel free to browse others there!
About a month ago we reported about the Michael Michael Kors Large Satchel, and Kate Bosworth recently proved the significance of the luxe handbag among Hollywood celebs. Cute bag, but somehow Kate seems to be missing out on what millions of other Americans are passionately devoted to (aside from handbags, of course)… food. Maybe a few more calories a day would make her and her cute bag harmonize a little more, instead of looking like an underfed, disease-ridden anorexic.
Ouch, did I just say that?
This studded, large satchel from MICHAEL Michael Kors is luxe on a relatively smaller budget (sub $300). The styling could spring right from daddy’s Softtail, the bag is undoubtedly bike-oriented. The satchel is held in ultra-soft calfskin leather, silvertone studs and springy colors catch the beholder’s eye. At a price of just under $300, it’s certainly a good catch for a top-notch designer handbag.
