Michael Teperson Feathered Flute BagSo, I’m not really posting this to review the Michael Teperson Feathered Flute Bag – I think you’d really have to see it in person to give it a fair shake, since it’s so odd (I mean…rooster feathers?). I’m posting because sometimes, us handbag people associate certain bags (or types of bags) with certain things or events. At least I do. So when I was paging through Vivre today, I came across this bag and immediately thought of Sex and the City. Circa season 5 (well, maybe 6), while Carrie is dating Burger (well, about to be sticky-noted by him) and they’re going to go to Smith’s play in Brooklyn.

He wants to go on his motorcycle, because he’s an insecure dude trying to be masculine, and she’s in her new Prada dress and has her hair fixed and DOESN’T want to go on the motorcycle. To make the idea that much more ridiculous, the wardrobe department gave here a clutch with several feet of, uh, stuff hanging from it. I think it was beading in that particular case. At any rate, this bag is that type of bag – the one you carry when you’re wearing shoes so high you can’t really walk in them and you expect to be doing nothing but sitting and being awesome for the entire night. And for that, I think it is fabulous. Buy through Vivre for $950.

Eva updates Vivre with notes, her favorites, and trends for the season. We had the opportunity to ask Eva her thoughts on Spring 2009 trends, must-haves, and plans. Read her interview below and stay tuned for a giveaway from Vivre later today!

PB: It is now Spring. What are the 5 must-haves for a Spring wardrobe?
Eva: 1. A generous -but-light wrap that can be used as a scarf or shawl
2. Blazer; This is a good piece for most people because there are so many different ways to wear it.
3. Big Bold Jewelry! A chunky necklace, enormous earrings are a cuff to stop traffic. (more…)

Straw Clutches by Glorinha Paranagua

One thing that you can count on Vivre for is finding interesting and fabulous pieces. The selection at Vivre is always amazing and I find myself clicking page by page deciding what I will order for my house when I hit the jack pot (Eva Jeanbart Lorenzotti has great knack for finding the most amazing items, but some are quite pricey!). So finding the perfect summer clutch was an easy task for Eva, because she nailed it with these colorful straw clutches. The Straw Clutch by Glorinha Paranagua has every amenity needed to make a hit bag, bold colors, perfect summer material, and lightweight. The materials of the purses are natural and the hand-woven straw is topped off with a raw bamboo closure and crocodile frame accents. That is right, you get crocodile skin accents and the price is still so manageable that it is a no brainer! The interior is fully lined and contains a small pocket. Measurements are 12″ x 1″ x 8″. My only problem will be choosing which color I love most; yellow, purple, natural, green, and coral. Buy this perfect summer accessory through Vivre for $275.
