Springtime flowers on fashion pieces are common enough to garner their own Devil Wears Prada reference, but there’s little use in arguing that a good floral can’t bring a smile to the face of most …

Orange has never been my color of choice, and not just when it comes to fashion. I mean that to me, orange was the color of last resort and tended to be the last color …

I’ve spent the past two days in LA meeting with all sorts of fabulous people in the fashion world. I had a chance to meet with the Lockheart team yesterday and was overwhelmed by their friendliness and openness. As we sat and chatted we couldn’t help but talk about the hot colors out there and one color that kept coming up was a deep yellow, almost maize or marigold color. So on the heels of that conversation I had to stop and take note of the Brahmin Melbourne Tote. (more…)

Brahmin Soft Croc ToteBrahmin is a brand that we don’t discuss that often, and it might be because many of their bags don’t vary much in appearance. They do almost exclusively stamped croc in neutral shades of brown, tan, grey, and black. That probably limits their potential audience and the types of bags that they can make, so it’s about time that they branched out a little bit. It appears that they’ve done just that with the Brahmin Soft Croc Tote which comes in a great shade of pink. I’ve never been much of a fan of the color, but I’m much more open-minded about dark or bright pink than about baby pink, and this bag falls into the former category. As far as shape goes, it’s not rocket science – it’s a big ol’ tote bag that will fit all your stuff for the day without breaking a zipper trying to close it. The straps also look long enough that you’ll have plenty of elbow clearance when swinging it onto your shoulder (a requirement for me), and the straps are flat instead of rolled, so it’ll probably be decent to carry once it gets there. Although the departure from the normal Brahmin aesthetic isn’t huge, perhaps they’ll continue to try new things if these bags are successful. At a mere $295, I don’t see why they wouldn’t be. Buy through Nordstrom for $295.
