Designer Gorjana Reidel, model turned designer has created not only an amazing collection of handbags but has built a lifestyle brand that includes delicate jewelry, beachy footwear and a new men's line called griffin. This brand had me at hello since their launch in 2006 and embodies the ease and under-stated glamour of the locals that reside in Laguna Beach, California where gorjana was founded.
While we know that no mom is going to turn down a sentimental card and fresh bouquet of flowers on Mother's Day, we also know that every mother has an inner bagista waiting to be treated to a beautiful handbag. This year, it might be a thoughtful gesture to pick up a complimentary handbag to go with her all-time favorite sundress or to pick a sleek leather piece to show her how much you love her classic style. The Handbago team has selected a few of our favorite picks for mom to help our readers think outside the Mother's Day bouquet.
Last week, the L.Bazaar Boutique housed R.B. of McD's handbag launch party in Silverlake, a neighborhood that seems to ooze the same laidback coolness that R.B. of McD and creator, John McDavid Lehman, so naturally embodies. The Handbago ladies, including myself, could not wait to get their hands on these bags, as well as talk with John in person about his passion for style and, of course, Los Angeles.
The first weekend of Coachella starts this friday, and although this festival is centered around the best bands that this year has to offer, we all know what Coachella really is... a fashion showdown. Luckily, you can count on Handbago to coach you in the right direction (pun totally intended). Although the current season's trends are incorporated, it seems that every year Coachella attendees gravitate towards a free spirited, bohemian vibe- which we love! Whether you plan on going rocker chic or beautiful boho, we have got the bag for you.
Fashion is art. And we love it. How have Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent graced us all with their brilliant designs? How can we not appreciate such creative art? Thus, fashion photography and art would be such a wonderful ode to fashion itself.

When high-end designers team up with noteworthy charities or foundations, it makes any fashionista feel good about splurging. On Friday, September 16, the Salvatore Ferragamo store in Beverly Hills held a breakfast that supported the Circle of Care Foundation, a non-profit that seeks to help build a better community. Through raising funds, they are able to "provide vital support for burn survivors and their families, family caregivers and the loved one they are caring for who has a memory disorder or other chronic illness."
