Style icon, Audren Hepburn, said something that I think everyone can agree with, “Paris is always a good idea.” It’s so true! Paris is ALWAYS good idea, especially in the vast world of fashion and handbags. Lancaster Paris was founded in 1990 and established itself as one of France’s leading fine leather accessory collections. Their bags are favorites amongst European fashion editors, and are featured in spreads for Grazia, Biba, L’Officiel as well as the French editions of Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and Elle.
I try not to play favorites, but I can't help it! The Dareen Hakim Collection is going to be taking over my wardrobe, and I can offically die a happy bagista! Dareen Hakim is one of the most inspirational designers and perhaps the smartest. Graduating from Harvard Business School, Dareen pursued a career in finance, yet realized her true passion was in the fashion world, particularly handbags. Dareen incorporates the magical finesse of Lebanese design in each handbag and gives them their own unique twist.
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.
