Proenza Schouler’s runway bags have always been a horse of a different color. While designs like the PS1 and PS11 are act as aesthetic pillar’s of the brand’s identity no matter the season, the bags that show up on Proenza’s runway are meant to be accents to a particular collection’s visual mood.

Then Proenza Schouler did what they have done the past few seasons, offered exclusive pre-orders on upcoming bags to coincide with their fashion show and the Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 Floral PS1 is calling my name so insanely.

Nothing makes me happier than stalking my next purchase. With most things in life, I’m an impulse-buyer, but when it comes to handbags, I like to take it slow. Let the romance develop.

Today Vlad and I traveled down to South Florida for a much-needed vacation. We plan to spend this time flopping from the pool to the beach with drinks in our hands, but I couldn’t go to bed without sharing a sneak peek I received in my email today.

I just checked the calendar and realized we are midway through summer. How exactly did that happen? One minute I remember dreaming of warm weather with you and now I am stuck in heavy heat and humidity.

This one doesn’t take much explanation: We love the Proenza Schouler PS1 and always have, and the excitement is palpable around here when new PS1s surface. We’ve been thinking for a while that the bag could use a few new shades, and it looks as though the Proenza team was right there with us.

If you are in the Northeast, then you are part of this intense heat wave we are all experiencing. I may be from South Florida, but there is something about the heat radiating off the buildings and through this concrete jungle that intensifies the temperature in a way I can not describe.

The craze over the Proenza Schouler PS1 has not died down and frankly, I do not want it to. I still love this bag and for spring I crave bright pops of color being incorporated into my wardrobe.

I didn’t think I’d ever see the day where I’d write two excited posts in one week about a wallet, of all things, but the boys at Proenza Schouler know how to get to me.

This may sound crazy, but I swear that when I first laid eyes on the Proenza Schouler PS1 Linen and Leather Clutch, the room immediately felt a few degrees cooler.
