year end clearance

While it would rock my world if Louis Vuitton went on sale, this day may never happen and we will have to rely on eLuxury for other sale items. Looking for the perfect bag with some of your Holiday cash, then peruse eLuxury for great savings on designer handbags.

Tods Marlene Smock Tracolla

For basic black with quilted touch and winter suede and a twisted leather handle, check out the Tod’s Marlene Smock Tracolla.

Tod's Girelli Metallic PochetteTod’s beauty and class manifests in polished refinement and simple grandeur. The Tod’s Girelli Metallic Pochette stays true to the designers style featuring grained metallic leather. A huge perk to a pochette is a removable or concealable chain shoulder strap, which gives the carrier a choice to place the clutch in hand or carry it on the shoulder. Overall simple yet a tasteful addition of crystal-encrusted silver metal push-lock closures on either side.

Tods Decoupage Shopping Media Bag

I love when new catalogues come out. Thanks to eLuxury, our favorite advertising partners, there are a new set of bags for all of us to gawk over. I can’t help but love the preppy and stylish look of someone wearing matching shoes with their bag. I don’t find it overpowering at all, rather perfectly fitting. For today, Tod’s is going to fill my shoe and bag want and need.

Tods Girelli East/West Bag in White Leather

The good folks at eLuxury describe this bag as such:

Gorgeous grained leather is sculpted into a distinctive, elongated shape, creating a sublimely luxurious take on the east/west bag. The unique form highlights the suppleness of the leather and shows off the impeccable Tod’s craftsmanship while two polished silver metal knobs add original touches. With a fine leather interior.

Fine? Damn fine, to say the least.

Tods Bamboo Black Satin Mini Evening Barrel BagI’m walking the line with this bag. I am having a very hard time deciding if I like the shape or not. Different, yes, but hot, I’m not sure. The Tod’s Bamboo Black Satin Mini Evening Barrel Bag is a baguette shaped bag made from shiny black satin and generously accented with Swarovski crystal details on the side buckles. Not that I don’t love Swarovski crystal or even black satin, but I just can’t tell if I like how it all comes together on this bag.

Tods Girelli East West Zebra Print Pony Bag

While the Starlight (oh yea, the magical flying horse from Rainbow Bright) was my favorite horse, zebra’s were a close second. I suppose the zebra would actually be my first favorite seeing that Starlight is completely fictional and no matter how much I begged my dad I could never get my own Starlight. So moving on to my other favorite ‘horse’, the zebra, we have the Tod’s Girelli East/West Zebra-Print Pony Bag.

Tod\'s Carey Grande

Yes, I’ve talked about a bag quite similar to this before by Tod’s. But the shape and color of this beauty intrigues me. The Tod’s Carey Grande receives its beauty from the light blue opal textured leather. The tote has double top handles and perfectly comes together with a gathered top with a buckle accessory for closing. Simple elegance at its finest sums up this bag.

Tods New Girelli East/West Bag

And you thought this day of shiny goods was done?! No way, I was just a little slow to get started. I am a huge huge fan of Tod’s. Way back when I remember thinking their bags were too simplistic and no one would know exactly what I was carrying. With quite a bit of time and a little more sophisticated view on fashion, I realize that is part of the appeal of Tod’s bags.

Tod\'s Carey Sacca Grande ToteOk so some of us are not Gwen Stefani and cannot pull off wearing red lipstick. Flat out, as much as I’d love to pretend I can, I can’t pull it off. When red lipstick was made, it was not for me. But I am able to pull off some red accessories. Good thing I can because I have kind of fallen for a beautiful red bag (again let me tell myself I can just so I can pretend I will look good carrying this bag).

Tods Kate Easy Media Giorno

When featuring the Tod’s bag in Raising Helen, I realized that I have not spoken about Tod’s in a while. Shame on me. Tod’s is a timeless classic brand that’s simplicity makes it hard not to love. Said to be one of the new hit bags, the Tod’s Kate Easy Media Giorno is simple but elegant. For any of you ladies who are through with the signature phase in bags, this bag may perfectly meet your needs and wants.
