Mulberry Flower Mini Leather Shoulder Bag

Having spent all of Friday carrying my yellow Kate Spade Essex Scout Crossbody Bag around a series of furniture stores in pursuit of a new bed and mattress, I cannot extoll the virtues of a small, bright bag highly enough. Being hands-free for shopping is as convenient as you might imagine, but the flourish of color that such a bag provides is the real reason I was carrying that purse.

If you’d like something a little different than the Kate Spade bag but still in much the same wheelhouse (or if you’re just a Balenciaga nut like I am), check out the Balenciaga Arena Perforated Brogues Hip Bag. It’s bright, small and brimming with trendy details to get you all the way through to fall with use of both of your hands. (more…)

I’m a longtime fan of not just Botkier as a brand, but the Venice line in particular. Great leather, lots of zipper accents…what’s not to like? Nothing, that’s what. The latest iteration of the Botkier Venice Crossbody just takes that to a whole new level.

You see, I have this thing for purple bags. I’m not exactly sure why, since I wouldn’t count purple among my favorite colors if you were to ask me, but a good bag in a nice shade of violet always pulls directly at my heartstrings. (more…)

Haircalf is such a versatile bag trend that it’s only a matter of time before it makes its way around to more or less every designer on the face of the planet, and I for one couldn’t be happier. Not only does it provide texture without looking messy or too “furry,” but the presence of haircalf also often means that designers are willing to play with pattern, as with the Rebecca Minkoff Haircalf Boyfriend Mini Bag.

Something about the material just makes stripes, spots and animal prints seem so appropriate, and any way to get more print and texture into an outfit is a way that I approve. (more…)

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US and the ceremonious eating of the turkey has become an unofficial start to the Christmas season (no matter what stores wanted us to believe by putting up their decorations weeks ago, I’m still going with Thanksgiving), now’s a great time to discuss holiday wardrobe. Red, green and metallics of almost any variety are usually what people tend to wear to holiday parties, and although it’s great to be festive, incorporating those colors too heavily makes you look like just another Christmas decoration. Do you want to look like someone mistakenly draped you in tinsel? No, you don’t.

My advice would be to dress how you would to a normal cocktail occasion but incorporate one accessory in a season-appropriate color, and if I had an unlimited budget, the Lanvin Jeweled Nyota Shoulder Bag would be my red bag of choice for this year’s party rounds and beyond. (more…)

As more Holiday (or Resort or Pre-Spring or Cruise or whatever you want to call them) bags show up online, I’m starting to think that a small handbag is far and away the best idea for working velvet into your cold-weather wardrobe. First came the Juicy Couture Flair Bow Clutch, and now, the Kate Spade Skipper Flower Velvet Mini Bag has piqued my interest. (more…)

We’ve been writing about the rise of the minibag for well over a year and a half now, and at this point, I think it’s safe to say that these little bags aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and for good reason. They provide a more modern alternative to a traditional clutch, and they’re often much more convenient to carry for long periods of time because of their long straps.

At this point, almost everyone who likes the trend already has a black minibag in their closets or has their sights on a candidate, but what if you’re looking for something to set your bag apart? An exotic is always a smart way to go if you want to make heads turn, and the Jerome Dreyfuss Twee Mini Python Bag lets you do that without cracking the four-figure price bracket. (more…)

Admittedly we’ve only discussed two Fall 2010 bags from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent so far, but it already looks as though the line has made vast improvements over its inaugural handbag efforts from Spring 2010.

The Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Cosmo Pouch in particular seems like good, girly fun. The look reminds me a bit of the Leah and Bliss bedazzled “Birkins” that we covered on PurseBlog earlier this year, but the relatively similar size, shape and color of all the stuck-on stones gives it a bit more of a refined edge.

You all have to know by now that I am not a fan of Juicy Couture handbags. This all started way back when Megs purchased a Juicy Couture bag that made my eyes bleed. Granted this was years and years and years ago, but I still remember the day she came home with it. Now, Megs is much more of a fashionista than I, so I probably should have just kept my mouth shut and appreciated the bag for what it was. But alas, I did not.

Needless to say, the design team at Juicy Couture has to work pretty hard to impress me. I am not one for a bag which SCREAMS its brand. Sorry folks, just not my style. However, there is something about this bag that I actually like. Let’s look at it a bit more closely. (more…)
