Admittedly we’ve only discussed two Fall 2010 bags from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent so far, but it already looks as though the line has made vast improvements over its inaugural handbag efforts from Spring 2010.
The Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Cosmo Pouch in particular seems like good, girly fun. The look reminds me a bit of the Leah and Bliss bedazzled “Birkins” that we covered on PurseBlog earlier this year, but the relatively similar size, shape and color of all the stuck-on stones gives it a bit more of a refined edge.
It’s so easy to find incredibly intricate, expensive, self-serious handbags covered in infinitesimally small crystals that seeing a company take that convention and set it on its ear in a fun way feels totally fresh. This bag has a great feeling of wit, and the look is big fun in a small package. Buy through ShopBop for $195.
