I always talk about how a great zip wallet could function perfectly well as a clutch, but it’s rare that a clutch functions as a wallet. In the case of this See by Chloe Chantilly Leather Tassel Zip Wallet, I was completely mistaken and thought I was looking at a clutch before I read the name of the wallet.

Like most of the recent See by Chloe creations, the leather looks lusciously soft (and rather curiously padded, but let’s not dwell on that). The ivory color goes particularly nicely with the light gold accents, giving the clutch a luxurious feel. (more…)

It is no shock that I’m a Rebecca Minkoff fan. In fact, looking back on past RM posts I’ve written, almost all of them are positive. I’ve recently been obsessing over the Easy Rider Date Clutch. I mean, I’ve been obsessing over it so much that I am shocked that I haven’t bought it yet. Perhaps that is something I should put on my “to-do list”. For those of you who liked that clutch but are in the market for something a bit bigger, Rebecca Minkoff has something for you. (more…)

I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually associate Cole Haan and evening bags. Ok, I don’t mean evening bags in the sense of a fancy schmantzy clutch, but more like I don’t even think about grabbing a Cole Haan bag for a night out on the town. For the most part, I think of Cole Haan for go-to bags. You know the kind; staple pieces, day to day bags, oldies but goodies. Like I said, you know the kind.

But of course, no sooner did I begin making that general statement, did I come across a Cole Haan bag that would actually be a lovely option for a night out. With the Spring and Summer months upon us, I am totally in the skirts and dresses mode: light, airy and super feminine. That being said, this bag would be perfect for so many warm-month occasions.

As I was checking my email this morning I came across an invite to my friend’s bachelorette party this summer. I love celebrating the step into marriage because, well, I guess you could say I have a tendency to be a hopeless romantic. As I continued to look at the invitation, one more thing jumped out at me – the party is going to be in NYC! So, I get to be a part of a great celebration AND it is going to be in a fabulous city… awesome!

My guess is that you know where my thought process went next – I need a new handbag for this occasion. (more…)

Every now and again all I want is a nice handbag with great leather and relatively clean lines. Certainly I have plenty of days where I want my handbag to boast great studding, fringe, zippered or other noticeable details. Yet, I always stop and take note of a wonderfully executed handbag that is simplistic in nature but totally nails what a great handbag should be.

Leave it to Cole Haan to answer this conundrum that I sometimes find myself in. Obviously, Cole Haan is known for exquisite, rich and supple leather. At the same time, they’ve continued to impress me by branching into the handbag world. The Cole Haan Zip Hobo jumped out and completely captivated me today. (more…)

Sigh. This bag was so close to getting everything right, but to me, there is one flaw that I can’t get over. It is so unfortunate though because this bag had all of the makings of a great handbag. Well, I need to let bygones, be bygones and move on. The Olivia Harris Leather Zip Pocket Mini Crossbody Bag is actually a really nice bag at a very reasonable price. (more…)
