No better way to start 2010 then with some great bags that I am already coveting. Marc by Marc Jacobs continues to bring us handbags that are not only reasonably priced but also entirely chic.
Which bag do I want to start 2010 with? The Marc by Marc Jacobs Linda Bow Clutch. The clutch is much larger than I anticipated, easily able to carry most everything you would need. And then there is the girlish glamour touch, the bow-embellished front, which is the perfect addition. (more…)
Have you been watching any of the red carpet award shows lately? I’d like to say that I catch every single one of them, but honestly, I don’t. What I make sure I do catch are the fashion recaps! I love looking at who is wearing what and who is attending with whom. So much fun! If you are anything like me, you have noticed the extreme splash of bold and bright colors this year. A spectrum of colors can be seen as you look at any awards show. Now, although I won’t be attending any of the shows anytime soon (sigh) I will try and incorporate some of the trends into my daily attire. The Marc Jacobs The Handy Clutch is a great bold clutch that reminds me of the color splash I keep seeing. This pink leather wristlet clutch is adorned with goldtone hardware and has a press stud to fasten. Whether you are going casual or maybe a tad fancier, this clutch could be a great one to hold. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $330.
Love him or hate him, we all know Marc Jacobs. I tend to love this man, his designs, his ambition, his talent. There are misses, but between the Marc Jacobs Collection and the Marc by Marc Jacobs Collection (among others), this man has proven himself worthy of praise. Some pieces are much more eclectic and fun like the Marc Jacobs Big Heart Zip Clutch. I know what many of you are already thinking, ‘Looks like an art project for Valentines Day’. Indeed, it does in many ways.
There are heart appliques of varying leathers decorating the front and back. And the price is for the name, of course. But the clutch is a good size (11″x 6.5″x 2.5″), the idea is cute, and I happen to like this clutch very much. What I do want to know is if there really is python skin or just embossed python. This is the kind of clutch you take out with your significant other, or when you are dressed super girly. What say you all? Buy through eLuxury for $795.
I’ll freely admit it – this is an odd little clutch. I mean, it’s got an old car on it. That’s weird, right? Why does a purse need a picture on it? And why a cartoon of a vintage Rolls Royce?
Honestly, I have no idea. I don’t have the answers to those questions. It doesn’t make any sense to me. But, for some reason, I think this little Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce Fold-Over clutch is completely adorable. And I’m not even sure that I can explain, in words, why I feel that way.
I’m not much of one for decoration of that type. I don’t think I own a single t-shirt that I’d wear outside of the house that has anything on the front of it. I don’t own any patterned bags, and normally I think extra stuff on the outside of the bag is there to distract from a boring design.
But this clutch is so whimsical and seems like such a sly throwback to a bygone era that I find it charming and smart. And I’m kind of worried about myself because of it. Buy through eLuxury for $1495.
