WHAT: Nancy Gonzalez Trunk Show and Personal Appearance by designer, Nancy Gonzalez

WHERE: Saks 5th Avenue, Bala Cynwyd , PA

WHEN: November 14th, 2008 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Nancy Gonzalez bags have become highly coveted accessories, focusing on exotic materials and popping color palettes. Nancy’s bags have graced the arms of handbag lovers worldwide who turn to her for a beautifully made bag, with a luxurious material, that sets an outfit apart from the rest. Her focus on color comes from her Colombian roots, as not only the culture affects her designs but so does the climate. “The 365 days a year of brilliant blue sky, the incredible plumage of birds, a green like nothing I have seen anywhere else – that is the beauty of Colombia,” says Gonzalez. The collection is designed and produced in Colombia and is available at retailers including Harrod’s of London, Aizel of Moscow, Isetan of Japan, Joyce of Hong Kong and Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Unfortunately, this PA is not near us, so we can not attend. But those of you in PA should make sure to check it out, it is an opportunity you do not want to miss!

Carlos Falchi bags are known for their exotic skins and bright bold colors. Carlos Falchi is not afraid to experiment with colors, which is evident from the
patchwork East/West tote we reviewed earlier this summer. So if you would like to be able to meet Carlos Falchi or see his designs, make sure to check out his trunk show schedule!

jada loveless trunk show

On Thursday, my mom, brother, and I will be flying to Madrid. I am literally not in one place for more than a week lately. It is a little crazy but of course amazing. And this trip is strictly pleasure, just vacation, but that is not to say that I won’t be doing a little handbag browsing. There is one event that I will miss while traveling but would have loved to attend; the Jada Loveless Trunk Show and Personal Appearance. I first was introduced to Jada Loveless bags when watching Lipstick Jungle. I fell head over heels in love with the Jada Loveless Isabel Clutch, which is designed with beautiful alligator skin and precious stones (including rubies). Jada’s pieces are one of a kind and are exquisite artwork. Her meticulously crafted clutches are ideal for a night out, an event party, or a black tie affair. Find more information on bags from her new season line and information on the Trunk Show and Personal Appearance below or through Jada Loveless online. If any of you can make it, please let us know how it goes! I have spoken with Jada over email but would love to meet her in person. (more…)
