Amanda told me earlier today, “It is easy to write about pretty things”. This is precisely how I feel about Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York’s Badgley Mischka Fall 2011 line which strutted down the runway today. The presentation from Mark Badgley and James Mischka brought us eveningwear that has our minds thinking ahead to the Academy Awards. And clearly this is what the duo wants.

The feel was vintage and inspired by party scenes from old films like “The Women”, “Dark Victory,” and “All About Eve”. We were wooed by tiered gowns, jeweled colors, and beaded-sheaths. Celebrities in the front row, including Kelly Osbourne, Rumer Willis, Lo Bosworth and Kellie Pickler, oohed and ahhed over many of the items, no doubt planning for the future times and events to wear them.

As much as we expected and saw couture and collection pieces, outerwear and sportswear were also debuted. It was a nice way to break up the gowns and pepper the runway with tuxedo pants and a shearling bomber. (more…)

It’s difficult to think of new ways to make a basic tote shape new and different, and although I really like the Badgley Mischka Suzanne Tote, I’m not sure that it can really be called “new” or “different.” After all, Beirn has a line of woven watersnake totes already. But sometimes different isn’t a necessity, particularly in the face of a reasonably priced exotic bag that can be used year-round and all day.

It’s hard to find a bag that’s multicolored but still convincingly neutral, full of texture but not functionally impaired, and still within a somewhat reasonable price range. Add real snakeskin to the mix and that mission becomes nearly impossible. But somehow, Badgley Mischka not only managed to do it, but the did it better than Beirn. (more…)

Most Marc Jacobs collection bags are relatively reasonably priced for a premium designer, but that doesn’t mean they’re exactly “affordable,” either. Particularly when it comes to something like a fun party bag that isn’t made of leather, searching for cheaper alternative with a similar look is a totally reasonable thing to do. Luckily, it’s usually possible to find similarly trendy pieces with much lower prices, like the Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Little Connie Minibag, which reminds me a great deal of a few bags from Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 2010 collection.

This past weekend was gorgeous here in San Diego. It was wonderful to get out and spend some time with friends. It’s always fun when I meet someone who is as obsessed with handbags as we are here at Team PurseBlog. When I get a chance to talk about what I do, what I love, I enjoy it thoroughly. Luckily, this exact situation came up this weekend. I was asked what is hot right now, and as you might be able to guess, one of the first things I mentioned was bucket bags. I am becoming more interested in this trend with each passing minute. So, I was a happy camper when I came across this fabulous Badgley Mischka creation. (more…)

Once again, Badgley Mischka puts together a really nice handbag. This isn’t a designer I look out for much, but when I come across some of their bags I am actually really surprised – in a good way. First and foremost, I love the shade of blue used on this bag. It is dark, rich and eye catching. Pair the blue leather bright goldtone hardware and everything works. (more…)

Hmmmm, something seems off here but I can’t quite decide. There is part of me the actually really likes the Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Carina Leather Hobo and then there is another part of me that doesn’t. The shape of this bag screams classic hobo which I am totally fine with. I can also appreciate the tie detail on the strap but I fear that it is just a bit too much. (more…)

When talking about this bag, I can’t help but think of what my good friend Rachel Zoe would say, “I DIE”! And for those of you who don’t know, this is a good thing. Ok, I have a confession, Rachel Zoe and I are not friends. I’ve never even met her. However, when I tap into my handbag styling self, I can’t help but think of Rachel’s go-to line. Either, way, long story short, I am loving this bag! (more…)

Sometimes, you don’t need something elaborate or over-designed. Some days, you just want a cute, functional bag made of nice leather that will stay on your shoulder and hold your stuff and match your outfit. And for those days, I present the Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Anu Hobo.

Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Anu Hobo

I’ve always wondered why they call this the “platinum label” since they’re a very expensive brand and this handbag line is so reasonably priced, but whatever, I’ll take it! This bag is probably my favorite that I’ve seen from them so far, and it appeals to the casual college girl in me (although I graduated from college over a year ago. Shhh, don’t tell anyone). It looks like it’d be a perfect bag for when you’re not in any specific kind of bag mood, but the small studs give it a tiny bit of personality that’s important to make the bag not look quit so generic. Buy through Saks for $475.
