Burberry Leather Wristlet, $1195 via Net-a-Porter

In my mind, calling a bag a “wristlet” is a precarious thing to do for a manufacturer or retailer. The word “wristlet” brings about a very specific type of simple, relatively inexpensive small accessory; personally, I use a wristlet to hold the small pharmacy that I carry around inside of my real bag.

I appreciate innovative designs and that is what the Jil Sander Pyramid Wristlets showcase. Innovation.

I am having one of those moments. I keep staring at the Donna Karan Goatskin Loop Pouch knowing that I have seen something familiar from another designer, knowing that I featured it on Purse Blog previously.

The years post college seemed to fly by. Gone were the 5-nights-out weeks and in were the days of working during the day and going to bed at a reasonable hour. Gone were naps (sad). And for me, gone was the need of a sturdy clutch/wristlet to take to all the bars and football games.

Lindsay Lohan was seen doing what she is known for over the weekend, getting in and out of her car while the paparazzi snaps her picture. LiLo is back from her make-out sessions in Italy and has been laying low.

It is graduation season in many parts of the world. Granted many and most graduated a few weeks ago, whether it be from high school or college, but the parties are still continuing. I recently went to my cousins High School graduation and had to think of the perfect gift.

Craftsmanship is always something to take into account when buying a designer handbag. Simple is fine, but you should attempt to own at least one handbag that is a true piece of art. Marked down now at Barneys, the Beavaldes Chinese Blossom Wristlet manifests its beauty in intricate and detailed beading with an array of beads and crystals.

If you have ever been to Columbus, Ohio you will know that great weather is somewhat hard to come by. I landed here late last night and woke up to gorgeous weather! I am still in shock that the sun is out and it really looks like spring.

It’s all about hand-held bags. They may life easy, keep those arms and shoulders from hurting, and can be flung on the wrist like an over-sized dangling bracelet. I often travel with my Louis Vuitton Wapity which is a godsend.

I recently read that the handbag industry is booming. Well duh, I could have told you that. But along with a booming industry comes skyrocketing prices. Sometimes it becomes overwhelming. Personally, I can’t afford this industry all the time.
