Today we found great bags from tPFers from designers like Hermès, Mulberry and Goyard
I never thought I would say this, but, is this handbag too blue? Or perhaps it is the wrong hue? I absolutely love most things blue, but this handbag might be a miss in my book. Although I like the shape and style of the Dooney & Bourke Patent Luisa Hobo, but I think the color is a little too much for me to pull off. I realize that bright colors are all the rage, but again, is this too much? The aqua high-shine patent leather has buckles on the short strap which I actually like. More than anything I am trying to figure out where I would carry this bag and with what kind of outfit. I would venture a guess that it would have to be paired with something rather simple so that the color of the handbag does all the talking. What do you think, is the color too much or just right? Buy through Nordstrom for $295.
I’ve never been a big Dooney & Bourke fan, but if they keep making bags as chic and well-edited as the Dooney & Bourke Santa Croce Short Handle Leather Shopper, I’m going to have to seriously reconsider my stance on the brand. This bag’s smooth, even, dark chocolate brown leather is absolutely stunning and the lines of the bag are more befitting of (dare I say it?) Hermes. I love the bag’s contrast stitching and extremely limited hardware, and I can’t help but thinking how great this would look with dark jeans and a white button-down (with some great, chunky jewelry, of course). And I don’t even like brown. In fact, my unending hatred of brown bags has been well-documented across this site. In spite of that hatred, this bag speaks to me, and what it’s saying is “buy me!” At less than $400, I’m not sure I’ll be able to ignore the voices. Buy through Nordstrom for $375.
Just yesterday I talked about exotics. Now today, I came across an exotic look I definitely don’t see very often. The Dooney & Bourke Giraffe Checkbook Clutch offers a unique pattern on a traditional shape. Correct me if I am wrong, but it isn’t very often that you see a giraffe inspired pattern on a handbag, is it? At first glance I couldn’t decide if I liked it or if I didn’t, but now the more I look at it, I think I find part of me liking it. This is the kind of clutch that can add a splash of fun to an outfit. No, I wouldn’t wear it with a fancy outfit, but for a night out with the girls, it could totally work. And more than anything else, the price is right. I wouldn’t spend my hard earned pennies on an expensive version of this clutch, but if the price is right, it might just be worth it. Buy through Zappos for $185.
