It’s approximately 27 degrees outside in Atlanta right now, and when you consider that we’re usually in the mid-50s in December, I’m sure you can understand how much of a shock that was when I left the house this morning. I’m currently wearing double layers and huddled under a blanket, but I’m also hoping that the sunny, cheerful Bottega Veneta Large Check Shoulder Bag can help keep me warm.

I’ve been looking at this bag for quite a while, trying to decide if I can get on board with the multicolor check pattern that criss-crosses the white leather background. And I think I can! This bag doesn’t fit in with my normal personal style, but it sure does make me want to fast-forward to late May and linen dresses. (more…)

To be fair, this is perhaps not the best picture ever taken of the Juicy Couture Flair Bow Clutch, so try not to judge it too harshly based off of only a stock image. Megs got a sneak peak at Juicy Couture’s Holiday 2010 collection a few weeks ago, and this clutch looks a bit more appealing in her pictures (not to mention this bag’s lovely blue counterpart).

Velvet was a big Fall 2010 runway trend that didn’t come to fruition quite as fervently as many expected, but chilly weather (and lots of holiday parties) make winter the perfect time to accent your outfits with a bit of the lush fabric. Doing so in an unexpected, super-saturated shade of chartreuse is even better. (more…)

It has barely started to cool off around here (in fact, yesterday was the first day since April where I went outside and didn’t immediately want to stab Mother Nature right in the face), but fashion works on a six-months-early schedule and pre-orders for Resort and Spring 2011 accessories have begun to pop up as the last wave of fall’s new garments heads toward retail.

One of the first trends to become apparent is the importance of color in spring’s dressing, and chartreuse sits firmly among the most notable of those colors to show itself in the season’s handbags. Designers as varied and powerful as Burberry, Bottega Veneta and Prada saw fit so include chartreuse in some of their first 2011 offerings, so rest assured that this is no flash in the pan. Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, but three times is a trend. (more…)
