Opening Ceremony Spring 2013 Bags

Opening Ceremony made a collection of gorgeous calfskin bags for Spring 2013. My favorite is this cross body bag with 3 compartments. The hard part is deciding which color to buy. At first I thought I wanted the black classic color, but when I thought about how many black bags I already had in my wardrobe I decided I needed to add a colorful bag to my bag wardrobe. One of the colors that really caught my eye was the sky blue which is vibrant and unique at the same time. The blush would be a safer baby pink option, but would be so pretty for spring with all of those blush colored favorites. Definitely a lot to think about. 

Opening Ceremony calfskin bags for $750 from Moda Operandi. Here is the good news – you pay 50% now as a deposit and you pay the other 50% only when your item ships out sometime in the Spring.

This season is all about the English school girl satchel and with the popularity of the candy colored Cambridge Satchels, Prada has come out with a chic designer version of the crossbody school boy satchel in the Prada Saffiano Leather Crossbody Messenger Bag.

What is great about it is the hands free factor of this bag. So if you are a student who needs to run from class to class or bike from campus to dorm, you can easily wear this bag across your body and fit everything including your iPad in it securely. If you are a mom and have to juggle work, kids, and visits to the grocery store after work, this handy bag will do the trick because it has many compartments to keep your life organized and will keep you looking boardroom chic and after school mom chic when you are with your kids. Overall it is such a versatile bag that I can see Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, and Mila Kunis carrying it around Hollywood. It is a great bag for Fall 2012.

Top 5 Crossbody Bags for Summer

on June 23rd, 2012
0 Comment

Summer is a time for rest, shopping and of course, new bags. What’s better than a small, easy crossbody? Here are my top 5 summer crossbody bags: 

1.)      Diane von Furstenberg Mini Harper Bag: This leather crossbody comes in hibiscus, a bright red shade and has a long, adjustable chain strap. It also has a lined pocket on the inside to put all your small things in. You can buy this bag at Shopbop.com for $295.

2)       Anya Hindmarch Mini Gracie Bag: This bag is made of beige pebbled leather and has a front flap with a turn-lock closure. The inside is lined with the classic bow print and has an extra pocket. Pick up this bag for $650.

3. Tory Burch Robinson Mini Bag: Even though it’s summer it is still nice to have some darker bags to match with your brighter outfits. This Tory Burch crossbody comes in black and dark brown leather, and has gold hardware and straps. Grab this from Shopbop.com for $365.

4)     Lanvin Mini Pop Crossbody Bag: This beautiful bag comes in gray and black crinkle calfskin. Personally, I think the gray is a better choice for summer but either way you can’t go wrong with this bag. The bag’s gold chain has grosgrain ribbon woven through it, and a logo medallion attached at the top. You can buy this at Neiman Marcus for $1,450.

5)     Lanvin Mini Happy Crossbody Bag: Lanvin’s small crossbody is perfect to throw over the shoulder and comes in three great colors: black, blue and rose pink. The pink is definitely the most summery of the three, but black makes for a great bag year round. Pick up this bag at Neiman Marcus for $1,490.

Prada Saffiano Messenger Crossbody Bag for Fall 2012

on June 19th, 2012

Prada just launched its Fall 2012 collection of bags and the bags are fabulous. It is all about the classics again. Prada has delved into the motorcycle shoes and other trends, but getting back to Prada Italian leather quality and good design has always been the  brands strong suit and this year they finally got it right again. I have not looked at Prada much since the days of their open top bags in 1999, but these last 2 years Prada has been bringing sexy back. Prada is doing some great bags again. The top 2 styles I love for this season is the simple hobo style and the saffiano messenger crossbody bag for Fall 2012.

The Prada Crossbody Messenger Bag design in textured saffiano lux leather is a durable beautiful classic piece that can take you from work to vacation this summer and back without any scratches or rips. The saffiano textured leather is that great leather that always looks the same no matter the age of the bag. It looks like the nylon version that we have loved all these years, but with a more structured body so we can take it to work too or even out to dinner.

Which ones do you like? Check out the Prada Saffiano Textured Fall 2012 Collection here now.

Linea Pelle Triple Zip Bag

Dylan Triple Zip Shoulder Bag Black

I saw a woman at the bakery with an amazing clutch in her hand made of great quality leather the other day with triple zip top zippers and gold hardware…since that day I have been in search of this great bag that has 3 separate zip compartments in a soft squishy black leather and gold hardware. I finally found the bag and it is definitely one of the best bags other than the Alexander Wang Brenda bag that I have ever seen. Why do I love this bag? The 3 compartments are just so amazing because you can put your cell phone in one zip compartment, make up in another, and keys in the other. This little bag holds a lot and will keep you so organized and hands free with its cross body strap. It comes in green for spring too. I love it in the black of course.
