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.

I’ve been critical of Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent’s handbag line in many and various ways in the past, but I can think of nothing I love more than when a line that used to disappoint me comes through and makes a bag I love. With the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Harvey Tote, Vincent has done exactly that.

Great design is often found toward the ends of the design continuum – successful bags are usually very broadly appealing or very taste-specific. This bag fits easily into the first category by virtue of being neutral, useful and priced under $500, and hopefully it’s an indication that the brand has found its accessories footing and will continue to churn out attractive, functional, reasonably priced handbags.

I feel like I’m constantly ragging on the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent bag line, and I really don’t mean to be. I have nothing in particular against the line and I actually quite like the designer’s clothes, but the bags are, over and over again, simply not attractive to me. It’s the brand’s first foray into handbags, so I can only hope that their efforts will improve. When they do, I will be more than happy to write nice things about them.

Bad reviews may be easier to write, but I much prefer it when I find new bags that I love instead of ones that I hate. Sadly, I pretty much loathe the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Nylon Grocery Bag, which is too bad, since if I’d actually quite like it if it wasn’t for one thing and one thing only. (more…)

Hey, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent. Alexander Wang called. They want their shtick back.

To the left, Wang. To the right, Cynthia Vincent. I feel like they’ve already met. (more…)

Oh my gosh, I have just fallen in love with studs all over again. The past few months the handbag world has been infiltrated with studs and fringe. While some bags completely nail the look others fall extremely short. This bag does not fall short, it actually makes me want to buy it right now. I love where the studs are placed on the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Billy Hobo. I am not used to seeing the studs on the shoulder strap, but here, it totally works. (more…)

Sometimes you come across a dress, a pair of shoes, or a bag that makes you think, “Wow. If only I had this, I would look cool and hip and trendy.” That’s what came to mind when I spotted this Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Outlaw Clutch in all its raw leather glory. It’s such a simple design, yet it looks so stylish- the epitome of that effortless look that so many of us strive to attain. Sure, it has many details; the structured handles, the lacing, the tassel; but these details mesh together in such a way that it looks carelessly cool rather than carefully contrived.

The oversized size makes it almost a celebrity item in itself; I can picture it at home on the arm of any Hollywood starlet. The roughness of the thick fringed tassel and the brown leather though, give it a touch of the Old West that would look equally amazing with cowboy boots as it would with the sweetness that is a lacy white dress. Isn’t it nice to find a bag that is at once so unique and so versatile? Buy through Shopbop for $275.
