Can we just not do this? Please? Pretty please? I would really love it if we cold all ignore any brand that tries to convince us that fanny packs are a good idea. We spent all of the 80s learning how ugly they are, and it would be a shame to throw away all of that knowledge when we’ll surely just come to the same conclusion again.

I find the Zambos + Siega Parker Pouch offensive on many fronts. First, it’s a fanny pack, which means it’s supposed to be worn at the widest point on a woman’s body, adding bulk and awkwardness to nearly any outfit. Second, it’s a very small PVC bag that costs $100, and that’s irritating in basically any context. That it’s a $100 fanny pack makes it even worse. (more…)

Folks, we have a winner. The Zambos & Siega Whitney Bag is an absolutely fabulous bag that would get quite a bit of use. This large tote is beyond perfect for so many things. I am constantly switching up my day-to-day bags because I can’t decide how big of a bag I might want to carry that day. Anyone else feel the same way? (more…)

While yesterday I was on a metallics kick, today I can’t seem to get enough of exotics. With only so many materials to pick from, I guess it shouldn’t really be a surprise that I go on kicks like this. The tote I wrote about earlier today is great for day to day use while this Zambos & Siega Python Peggy Clutch is the perfect exotic for a night out on the town. (more…)

I’ve always liked Zambos & Siega bags. But that’s it- I just liked them, nothing more or less. But that all changed once I took a peek at this Zambos & Siega Kimberly Clutch. You see, I’m not a big clutch girl. I own no bags of this style, and for nighttime I often reach for tiny crossbody bags.

But recently I’ve been overcome by a desire to own a clutch which has led me to online window-shop into late hours of the night in search of the one clutch that would serve me well. So it was lucky for me that Shopbop posted this clutch, this small package or rectangular goodness. I’d prefer the leather not be faux, but the wrinkled look works so well that I almost fooled myself into thinking it could be an exotic while looking at the minuscule preview photo. (more…)

Zambos & Siega Lulu Clutch If you are a rocker chic or love the rocker chic look, do we have a clutch for you! The Zambos & Siega Lulu Clutch is a breath of fresh rocker chic air in this fringe and stud infested world. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for fringe and studs, but it is nice to see a change of pace.

Pebbled faux grey leather has metal ring detailing and tiered chains at the front of the bag. Since the ring detailing and tiered chains are just at the front of the bag I think it looks fabulous. If this detailing was on the front and the back I don’t think I would be as much of a fan. The antiqued brass hardware looks great against the grey material. This is an ideal clutch to grab if you are looking to add a bit of flare to your outfit without going over the top. Buy through Shopbop for $121.

On first examination, I really, really like the Zambos & Siega Twiggy Clutch. The lines are extremely clean and sophisticated, the shape is easy to hold, and the color is versatile and more unexpected and fresh than black. I particularly love the way that the white between the embossed scales bleeds into the dark grey of the scales themselves – it makes the finish all the more eye-catching and is an effect that’s not used nearly enough.

On second examination, though, I’m irritated. This bag, like the last bag from Zambos & Siega that I reviewed, is not real leather. The price is low for a high-end clutch, but not low enough to justify using a fake material. If I wanted a vinyl bag, I could easily find one for a fraction of the price at Target or Forever 21. From a brand that expects to charge this much, I want more than PVC, even if that means a slight increase in the price. I’d much rather have the real thing and pay extra for it. Buy through ShopBop for $65.
