Beyonce is the new face of H&M’s Summer campaign.  As if she’s not busy enough, the superstar working mom not only shot the campaign in the Bahamas this past January, but she helped design the collection that accompanies it.  The campaign will consist of print ads and a commercial to air in May and H&M will be donating 25% of the sales of the collection to the charity H&M for water.

IIIBeca by Joy Gryson Handbag Collection!

5 Mar

As you all know, I love a great handbag! Handbags complete your look and carry your “life” around for you!  What more can a woman want?  Once in a while a handbag comes around that has quality construction and is accessible to most budgets! Handbag designer Joy Gryson’s line IIIBeca is exactly that!  Not a single bag in the collection is over $200- talk about accessible!  I might be going out on a limb here when I say this, but these bags can hang with Hermès and Valextra creations in my opinion! ( Go ahead….google Valextra bags right now) The craftsmanship is impeccable and the clean, classic silhouettes are timeless!  You will own these bags for a loooooong time!  Ok~ now onto my other delightful piece of information about this collection…….. 3% of the proceeds go to three different NYC charities chosen by Gryson herself for a total of 9% being donated from the sale of each bag!  How cool is that?

Below are my favorite styles in the collection.
