With summer in full swing, a true fashionista knows how important it is to stay one step ahead of the game. Playing with whimsical touches is the key trend for this fall season, and Miu Miu has set the bar with Alice-in-Wonderland inspired shapes and sizes. Blown-up coin pouches with unique accents such as kiss-lock closures, luxe textures, and framed tops create the perfect combination of chic sweetness.
Resort collections are surfacing the scene and Miu Miu has brought visions of cotton candy, watermelon lip smackers and strawberry milkshakes with their new Vitello Lux Baby Bow Bag. The Vitello is all about frothy, sugary sweetness and is neatly wrapped with not one, but two bows. We are once again reminded that Winter doesn't last forever and that Spring is right around the corner. The Vitello also comes in a powdery baby blue that will set your heart a flutter. What a perfect way to beat the winter blues.
As I mentioned in a previous post, the Handbago team was mingling amongst the crowd at the Fashion's Night Out in Los Angeles this past Friday and boy do we have TONS to share. I know many people were apprehensive to fight the overwhelming crowds and the infamous LA traffic, but I think it was totally worth it.
Are you a Betty, Peggy or Joan? In anticipation of the season 4 premiere of the hit AMC series Mad Men, we've decided to take a look at the fashion and try to see which bags of today would be worn by the leading ladies. There is nothing quite like the fashion of the early 60s; men looking dapper in suits with skinny ties and women in form fitting, curve hugging dresses. There was something so glamorous about that time and the handbag fashion was no exception. This was the era of the iconic 'it' bags.
This long weekend has me dragging my feet on this gloomy Tuesday morning. Shouldn't June Gloom be over down here in LA? It's sweltering in New York City with temperatures in the high 90s yet here in Los Angeles it's a cool 60 degrees and cloudy.
What's hot for Spring 2010 bags? Florals are beautiful, bold colors pop but my favorite Spring trend is Nude bags! This neutral shade is perfect to pair with your floral frocks this season. I scoured the bags on the internet and came up with some of the best totes, hobos and satchels in this feminine buff color.
With our volatile economy, we are frantic to halt our purchases and save every penny in our bank accounts. However, we should actually do the opposite because by spending more, we save more. It does not sound logical but with what Coldwell Bankers are saying, by investing on real estate, the tax credit benefits will allow us to save enough money to add a new handbag collection! And that's just one of several attractive benefits for first home buyers, people who have not owned in the past 3 years, and current home owners.
Attention, bagistas and fashionistas currently in or around New York City: cancel any plans you've made for the night of Thursday, September 10, 2009, and head over to NYC's first annual Fashion's Night Out!
