I’d like to begin by saying that I generally try to make an effort to appreciate innovation, even when it might lack in functionality. If no one attempts innovation in the first place, then we never have any new concepts for designers to eventually incorporate into bags that we can use in our everyday lives. Which is why I like the Miu Miu Basket Tote, at least in theory, if not in practice.

Miu Miu Fuchsia Matellase Tote

There is a similar phenomenon with Miu Miu handbags and Marc by Marc Jacobs bags. Bigger brother/sister of both brands seems less impressive than the younger sibling at times. Prada is great, but many times Miu Miu is better. Same with Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc. One of my favorite bags from Miu Miu reappeared on NAP and I was crushing on it hard.

Miu Miu Distressed Leather HoboLadies and gentlemen, I have posted this bag for one reason and one reason only: to demonstrate a leather-finishing effect that I truly and completely despise. Other than the quasi-shiny effect, I really like the Miu Miu Distressed Leather Hobo. The shape is good, the color is interesting and uncommon, and the handle detail is a nice, subtle touch. If it wasn’t for the infuriatingly terrible finish they put on the leather, I’d be all about this one.

Miu Miu Patent Square ToteWhat was your first Miu Miu purchase? Actually, come to think of it, I don’t own a Miu Miu handbag… yet. As much as I love handbags, I tend to error on the side of purchasing once I am totally sure I want it. I consider almost all of my handbags investment pieces and I love that most of them have a unique story behind them.

It has been a while since I’ve come across a Miu Miu handbag that I’ve loved. I don’t think today is any different. The Miu Miu Matellasse Tote will not be gracing my collection anytime soon. Before I start telling you what I don’t like, I’ll tell you one thing I do like – the color. As many of you are in the throws of winter weather it is nice to see a splash of color from time to time.

Before writing this I realize that I may give you all the impression that Vlad and I are nothing other than bumps on logs. Not the case, but I am well aware that it may come off that way. Upon first glance this clutch screams ‘take me with you on new Year’s Eve!!’. And then I thought to myself, what is it that we will be doing on New Year’s Eve this year?


Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote

I am constantly drawn to cream colored leathers. Browns and whites can be harsh at times, so adding a bit of cream to tone it down is the perfect option. And whites do not have to stop being worn after Labor Day, in fact winter whites are perfectly luxe for the season. But I typically opt for a white that is creamier.

There are certain colors I just can’t get enough of. Gray is one of them. With so many different shades to choose from, gray is a color that can add anything from sophistication to edginess to your outfit. When I first came across the Miu Miu Diamond Leather Bag I didn’t think I saw anything too noteworthy. At first glance, I actually thought I was looking at a clutch.

This is yet another one of those handbags where I don’t really know where to start. At first glance, the Miu Miu Patch Shoulder Bag has just too much going on. Now, I don’t think it is quite as busy as the Bottega Veneta Woven Boston handbag Megs covered just a couple days ago, but it’s still too much for me.


Miu Miu Shine Colour Bowler Bag

While getting my hair done yesterday (I’m now a brunette once again!), I found myself thumbing through a slightly out-of-date British Vogue, and I learned two things: First, that I like foreign Vogues more than I like American Vogue (please don’t smite me, Anna Wintour! But seriously, check out French and British Vogue. And maybe even Italian, Russian, and Indian), and second, multi-color handbags are supposed to be big for fall and winter.
