A few months ago, Coach unveiled a return to its roots with the Coach Legacy collection of handbags and accessories. I spent a long while perusing the bags in all their color glory and realized that this is the Coach I knew and loved. This is the Coach I desperately wanted to see make a resurgence, and it has finally arrived.

I’m continually surprised by the huge number of Michael Kors bags that I see women carrying in every city that I visit. One of the most recognizable bags from the line is the Michael Kors Hamilton, which has been issued in nearly countless colors, sized and materials. The version above may be the most exciting, though; like other designers, MK is always giving back and after the tragic earthquake in Japan, Michael decided to help.

Hats off to Amanda for holding down the PB fort as Vlad and I partake in a “vacation.” So far on this particular trip, we rarely check our email and keep swatting one another’s hands away when we see the other attempting to slyly work via our iPhones. But today, after a long day in the sun, we both caved and decided it was time to check in with you all.

One of our Twitter friends is @katespadeny, who we love to follow for a glimpse into the life of Kate Spade New York. Today while Vlad and I were out for our Sunday brunch, I was checking Twitter and saw Kate Spade tweet a photo of a new bag. With one click I found my way to the Kate Spade Pocomo Gwen, a small cowhide bag with a camera embossed image, and I fell for the design and immediately went to the Kate Spade store to buy it.

My weekend obsession is an outfit that costs $25,700. Take a peek and see why I am obsessed!

For Spring 2011 the Coach Kristin Collection takes center stage in their line and that puts a smile on our face.

For Spring 2011, the Bottega Veneta Cigar Cocco Lave Large Cabat will be released. This bag is the ultimate Cabat and my current weekend obsession.

I did it, I finally finally did it!!! You all had to listen to me go back and forth for many months (it feels like years) over which Balenciaga bag I would ultimately buy. I had my mind set on getting a Balenciaga Bag, the decision process came down to the color. Balenciaga is known for their rich and vibrant use of color and BBag lovers wait with bated breath every season to what colors will be released from the house [check out Fall 2010 colors here].

A horse is a horse, of course, of course…

This weekend’s obsession visits the gentleman’s department. At around $170, Hermes’ beautiful silk ties are a (relatively) cheap entry into the world of men’s luxury fashion. The silk is among the finest available and the prints are highly colorful and come in funny and playful patterns.

They make great gifts for husbands or boyfriends for any occasion and are available in Hermes boutiques or online.
