I have always had a hard time trying to get dressed on the greenest day of the year without looking like I need to be on a box of Lucky Charms, but with a smart clutch, handbag, or tote, anyone can avoid the leprechaun look and show some sophisticated holiday spirit. I got a chance to pick a few of my top bags that will make you look like a million pots o' gold.
Handbago was featured on Unconventionally Chic, a great new blog on fashion! In this blog post, Calling All Handbag Enthusiasts, Nachelle highlights the four new bags she must have, since stumbling across the site. Sorry we have left you debilitated Miss Unconventionally Chic! We have a shopping problem too, which is why we love this job!
With the simplicity of the Internet these days, it seems that everyone can be a writer, especially when it comes to fashion. What distinguishes a good writer from a great writer? Or, in that case, an interesting writer? Everyone has their own opinion and style, but not everyone knows how to translate their thoughts into those than can be appreciated by the masses.
Here at Handbago we love to find other bloggers that share our passion of blogging. When we came across Botkier's Blog we were officially obsessed! Each blog you can look forward to topics such as: Monica's Musings, Botkier Beat, Beauty Board, and Obsession Du Jour. Each of these blog categories gives you insight on the latest trends, fashion icons, beauty tips, hot music, and celeb news.
A few weeks ago we featured a great fashion blogger, Becca from Fashionshesays.com. Her blog features her amazing fashion style and vintage vibe and she's been noticed by Glamour, Chicisimo and Who What Wear Style Stalker. I loved discovering her blog and decided to contact her for an interview. I adore this girl's fearless style. She cites Audrey Hepburn as one of her style icons and prefers vintage for everything.
This past week, New York luxury handbag company Nyla Noor debuted their official website and Launch Collection to the world. The Handbago team has waited in anticipation for months to see what was hiding inside that mysterious glowing shopping bag from their previous site layout. Nyla Noor ensured the public that they would produce "arm candy, with a conscience," and that's exactly what they've done.
This past October, Handbago had the privelege of attending the Bagtrends Arm Candy Party in New York City, where we rubbed elbows with some of today's most incredible designers. One of them was Adriana Castro, a Miami based brand responsible for putting dozens of sophisticated and sultry handbags and accessories into the hands of Eva Longoria, Heidi Klum, and Kim Kardashian. Adriana herself was unable to attend the event, but Handbago recently caught up with her to ask how she turned her designer dreams into a fabulous reality.
The holidays are just around the corner, which means millions of people are going to spend the next several weeks searching for the perfect gifts to give to their loved ones. What would the special lady in your life like to receive this winter season? Throw aside those impersonal gift cards and boring pajama sets, because Handbago can guarantee that she wants a fabulous designer purse! Though we know that handbags aren't exactly the most affordable gift items out there, some designers certainly give you a lot of bang for your hard earned bucks!
It's a known fact that styles and trends in fashion are recycled over time. The hippy look is as popular today as it was in the 60s, fanny packs are back on the scene, and people are sporting plaid and leather more than any grunge rock star in the 90s. Truly talented designers understand that fashion isn't only about creating something completely new, but that it's just as important to take something old and re-work it into a great product that is both relevant and fashionable in the present.
