Last night I asked our Twitter followers what bag or designer they would like to see us feature. Twitter user Fashion_Hawk suggested this Miu Miu Clutch. This was easy to say yes to, because I already eyed this clutch and already planned on writing about it.
The Miu Miu Bird Suede and Python Clutch is a welcomed surprise from Miu Miu and designer purses in general. We continue to see the same designs over and over. And for a site that reviews bags all day long, it takes additional measures to grab our attention, be it good or bad. In the case of this Miu Miu bag, I say it is good. (more…)
I love that studs will be seen on many handbags for fall and winter. This is a trend that when done right gives that perfect touch, a bit of a rocker edge. I have been attempting to figure out my studded bag purchase for fall, not even sure where I am leaning right now. But for those of you that are not feeling a large studded bag, a studded clutch will bring the punch. Silver and gold stud embellishments adorn the Miu Miu Studded Leather Clutch. One of my pet peeves is when a designer only puts studs on one side of a clutch, leaving the backside bear and lonely. This clutch does not leave you stud-less on either side. It is simple yet fun and has an internal pocket. I am digging it! Buy through Net A Porter for $750.
Yesterday temperatures reached a balmy 100 degrees here with humidity that made stepping outside feel like stepping into a sauna. Then from the wee hours of the morning until a few hours ago I was reminded that Hurricane season has begun as the storm that hit knocked out power for hours and took down internet. Nevertheless we are back up!
What came first, the chicken or the egg? It is no shock to anyone out there that designs (especially when it comes to fashion and handbags) are replicated. Sometimes on purpose and sometimes not. But, I have to say, I can’t help but wonder when I come across a bag that reminds me of something similar if there is any relation. The Miu Miu Stamped Leather Clutch is fabulous. The orange glazed stamped leather clutch is adorned with gold tone hardware and comes with a zip top and detachable shoulder strap. Use the shoulder strap during the day as you run errands or take it off as you head out to meet some friends for a couple of post-work drinks. The handbag might be too small for me when it comes to day time running around, but if you are able to pack everything in, I say, go for it.
But, back to my original thought, this clutch reminds me of something else, say, the Furla Nausicca Xsmall Top Handle Bag I wrote about a while back. Sure, there are noticeable differences and I definitely wouldn’t mistake one for the other, but if you are anything like me, you can see the glaring similarities. So, do we chalk this up to a trend or something else? I’m just curious. Get the Miu Miu clutch through Net-a-Porter for $420.
Before writing this I realize that I may give you all the impression that Vlad and I are nothing other than bumps on logs. Not the case, but I am well aware that it may come off that way. Upon first glance this clutch screams ‘take me with you on new Year’s Eve!!’. And then I thought to myself, what is it that we will be doing on New Year’s Eve this year? And then I thought about what we have done years prior, which has been truly mellow and involves a very small group at home. And then I felt lame. But I must say that for the past two years we have had horrible jet lag each time. Either way, that is neither here nor there, as this year we are going out with close friends of ours! And what will I wear?! (more…)
Last week I included you on my hunt for a great purple clutch. The hunt is still on as I desperately try to find a great fun purple clutch. No need for a crazy expensive clutch, something fun to take out and play with. Miu Miu handbags have been on a roll for me, churning out cute and affordable bags season after season. They are not all home runs, but some definitely are rounding the bases.
And with my purple clutch obsession, I ran into the Miu Miu Stamped Clutch in purple stamped patent leather with gold hardware. And while this is an overly simple clutch, I do wonder what the croc stamping looks like in person. I am all for bag deals, but if this bag looks cheap in person I will not splurge, even with such a price friendly tag. The thing is, croc stamping can look overly forced, making a bag ultimately look cheap. If I saw this bag in person and liked it, it would be a purple clutch contender. The major perk is the patent leather can be cleaned up easily! Buy through Net A Porter for $275.
Upon first glance this bag looks awkward. It is a different look with a different appeal. When this Miu Miu bag first popped up on Net A Porter I was confused by both the purse and my feelings towards the purse. But then it sold out (in a teal hue) before I had time to really sit and think it over. Now the Miu Miu Framed Fold Over Clutch is back in a peonia soft nappa leather with a gold tone frame. While you hold this clutch by the leather top, you must place it with the gold clasp facing up to open it. The color is perfect for what this season craves; bold colors and accessories. Yet the set up of the clutch is different from the norm and I am not sure I can love it fully. It almost looks as a clam on its side, asking for you to open it up. And when you do, the bag expands like a bag of tricks. Either way I can not deem this drab, because a part of me likes it. It is just that the other part of me is confused by it. What do you think about this Miu Miu handbag? Buy this runway look through Net A Porter for $720.
