I can barely believe that Friday is with us yet again. That’s probably because the combination of spending half of the week in a different city and this past week’s change in the clocks has …

Last weekend, I found myself on a night out, carrying a great clutch, and without any place to put it. I don’t like clutches with chain straps because they feel old-fashioned to me, so I …

Y’all, it’s Fashion Week. Have we mentioned that yet? We might have. It might have come up! A lot of you guys probably don’t care, though, and even the ones who do probably still want …

If you’ve been in the market for a contemporary bag any time in the last five years or so, you’re likely quite familiar with a couple of Foley + Corinna bags already: the City and …

If you haven’t yet seen the newest teeny tiny Foley + Corinna City bags, then make your way to your nearest Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, or Saks Fifth Avenue as soon as possible to take a peek”” within reason, of course. (more…)

First and foremost, when it comes to Foley + Corinna handbags, I am used to seeing totes, not clutches. But today, I saw this Foley + Corinna Fold Over Clutch and I couldn’t help but want to investigate a bit further. The first thing I thought was that I wished that I saw this clutch before New Year’s because this could have been a contender. (more…)

Foley + Corinna Kiara Clutch

Um, what’s going on here? I don’t really know what to think much less what to write about this clutch. Foley + Corinna have put out some fabulous handbags. Yet, the Foley + Corinna Kiara Clutch is a bit of a mess. Pebbled black leather with 2 snap-flap pockets at the front and a braided strap at the side seem to be a tad too much. At first glance, the pockets reminded me of looking at a pair of jeans from the back. (Anyone else see that?) Now add metallic trim, tassel detail and a wrist strap and, again, too much. Perhaps if one accented part of the handbag was focused on I would like it more. I am sure there will be plenty of you who think I am crazy, but let’s just say, this clutch is not for me. Buy through ShopBop for $264.

Despite my unending obsession with smooshy, soft, touchable leather of all varieties, sometimes a leather bag in the heat of summer can feel a bit…heavy. I live in Georgia, and right about now, the heat and humidity outside start to edge towards unbearable, steadily making their way to the sweaty, exhausting August peak (just in time to stand outside for 8 hours every Saturday, tailgating and watching college football).

Unfortunately, the desire for a non-leather bag creates somewhat of a conundrum for high-end bag lovers. You don’t want to buy crap, because having a beautiful bag is something that you enjoy and buying something that’s not well-made feels like a waste of money. Then again, many designers charge nearly as much for a non-leather bag as they would for a leather one, which feels like a rip-off (and like the designer thinks you’re dumb enough to pay a premium for their name alone when the components of the bag don’t nearly warrant the price). So, most summers, my desire for a cute, summery, non-leather bag goes unfulfilled. (more…)
