With the arrival of August, one thing is undeniable: Fall and Winter are coming, despite the fact that it continues to be more than 90 degrees outside in Georgia. I love winter clothing, probably because I have always lived in a climate that makes wearing your cold weather gear a rare treat – flip flops are temperature-appropriate footwear here at least 9 months out of the year, not to mention the occasional 70 degree day in February. I haven’t seen accumulated snowfall since January of ’04. (more…)
There is something so very reminiscent about this handbag. Could it be that is closely resembles the Jimmy Choo Riki? Ah, yes, that is precisely it. While the design idea is not entirely new, the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Class Tote sports a rugged feel with a somewhat feminine touch, the contrast stitching that resembles a bow on the front. But the overall feel is that of a street chic. There is nothing super girly about the bag, but it is practical and will match with most things easily. This bag has a tomboy feel. The leather is a khaki green color and there is contrast topstitching. The double top handles are one way you can carry this bag along with the buckle shoulder strap. The inside is lined with canvas and dimensions are 16″ W x 14″H x 7″D. Overall this bag is just fine. Compared to the Jimmy Choo Riki it is nothing special, as I prefer the Riki over this bag (buy through Saks for $1895). I see a major problem though. While it is nothing to write home about, the price is something to make you gasp! The going range lately has been more around $1200, and this bag nearly doubles that. Pre-order at Saks for $2,250.
