I’ve recently found myself wondering how much more attention Michael Kors and his line have received since the inception of Project Runway. We all know what a huge following Project Runway has. Then, when you think about it, every time Heidi Klum introduces the judges, including Kors, those watching must take note.

I have to say, I tend to have a love/hate relationship with patent leather. Perhaps it all stems from my childhood since I vividly remember wearing a pair of patent leather “fancy” shoes for Christmas one year.

Lately Victoria Beckham has been a walking Hermes and Marc Jacobs ad. Anywhere we spot her she is pairing her Hermes Handbag with a Marc Jacobs Dress (typically with Louboutins). It is refreshing to see Victoria step out with a different designer handbag.

After I brought you the Michael Kors Beverly Gator Watch Clutch, the response was actually quite negative. Here is the thing; I was torn. Did I love the bag or hate it?

Michael Kors is known by many fashionable people, but has never been an authority in the handbag world. His bags have been basic and have lacked ingenuity at times, but he has designed an attention grabber for spring!

Michael Kors is able to offer us a designer handbag for a more friendly price tag. Not quite under the $1000 mark, the Michael Kors Chain Shoulder Bag sports cream leather accented with gold hardware. Some days I begin to question these handbags that I love, watching the price tags sky rocket.

As handbag prices skyrocket, every designer is squeezing in their holy grail handbag. Michael Kors implements his classic, chic, and luxurious style in the yellow crocodile Michael Kors Sutton Large Bag. This hand held bag makes a statement with the creamy yellow crocodile and the front flap with extended tab with a gold-tone logo-embossed buckle.

I have said it at least 100 times in 100 different entries, the whole over-zealous monogram pattern does not do it for me. I want the beauty of the bag to attract the attention, not the logofied style.

Michael Kors is biting and witty on Project Runway and practical and funky in his designs. The Michael Kors Venus Shopper offers three supple and creamy colors (chocolate, black, or luggage (shown)) and all the amenities needed for this handbag.

During grade school and high school I really had no choice but to be preppy. Private school does that to you. But now that I can dress the way I choose, I do find myself still sporting the preppy look from time to time.
