The Many Bags of Kate Hudson

Lace is everywhere for fall, which presents designers with one big problem, just as any trend does: finding a way to reinterpret it in a way that stands out. Someone at CC Skye had some some sort of epiphany when designing the CC Skye Rough Romance Frankie Satchel, though, and that makes it one of fall’s best lace handbags.

The secret, of course, is leather. Leather may not seem all that interesting, in the context of handbags at least, but making lace out of it is a time-consuming, careful process that usually only huge brands undertake. Trust me, it involves lasers. It’s very complicated. And expensive! But here, you can get it at a contemporary price point. (more…)

Fashion can get a little tricky when trying to mix lots of pieces with different textures and patterns, and for better or worse (we think for better), texture and pattern are all over the place lately. The moment’s trends call for bold looks from head to toe, and it can be a little daunting to try and figure out how to piece together a look like that at the mall – in fact, you really don’t want to know how many pieces I went through before I chose the ones you see above.

Because we like to be helpful, we’ve put together two bold looks, one casual and dressy, based on the very trendy Marc by Marc Jacobs Tribal Pixie Bucket Bag. A bag that has so much personality can be hard to style, but if you focus on incorporating pretty prints and standout accessories, you’ll have an outfit in no time. (more…)

So, not to be accusatory or anything, but doesn’t the CC Skye Love 82 Bag give you a little bit of handbag deja vu? Just a tad?

I don’t intend to cast aspersions, but to me, this bag looks an awful lot like the Botkier James Hobo. The James has been around for over a year, whereas I think that this is a new design for the folks at CC Skye, so the numerous similarities are making me feel a little weird. (more…)

It’s been a little while since we’ve covered a CC Skye handbag on here. This being the case, I was pleasantly surprised to see a new bag of hers that I completely like.

I know I’ve been back and forth with fringe, but hey, haven’t we all? So, I did cringe a little when I saw the term “fringe” in the name of the bag, but I let out a huge sigh of relief when I spent some time looking at the bag. In this case, the fringe used is delicate, dainty and perfect on this bag. (more…)

No one loves an 80s music reference more than me. For years when I was a kid, I would watch old music videos on VH1 (Pop Up Video, anyone?) in the mornings while I was waiting for my dad to get ready and take me to school. Since I was born at the tail end of 1985, I was too young for most of the decade to really remember any of the music when it first surfaced, but I somehow managed to revisit almost all of it in the mid to late 90s via the magic of television.

“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benetar was (and is) my favorite. Which is, of course, all the more reason to love the CC Skye Benetar Clutch. As if I needed any more reasons. (more…)

I love a good winter white. I’m from the South and there are still fairly strict taboos here against wear white after Labor Day, but those rules seem so completely old fashioned in the face of beautiful, creamy winter whites, such as the stylish-yet-functional CC Skye Kate Hobo.

I have a personal bias towards bags with this shape and structure, but this looks like just the sort of thing to add some much-needed neutral contrast to a dark winter wardrobe. (more…)

CC Skye Janey Chain Fringe HoboAt first, I thought CC Skye Janey Chain Fringe Hobo wasn’t anything to write home about. We’ve seen plenty of oversized, long-handled fringe hobos, and we’ve seen lots of grey for fall/winter.

But then I realized that the word ‘chain’ was in the name of the bag, and I realized that I needed to take a look closer. When I did, I was pleasantly surprised, and it reminded me that the devil really is in the details. (more…)
