My Favorite Quilted Bag!

22 Jan

Quilted handbags have been around for quite  awhile and are the perfect timeless style to include in your handbag collection. The beauty about quilted bags is that they can be worn with anything from an evening dress to a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Every designer has their own take on the quilted bag with Chanel being the most recognized. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock- you can’t get your hands on a Chanel bag for less than $1500 and that’s the LOW END. That brings me to the entire point of this post; Most people would love a Chanel bag yet most people could never afford one- and there aren’t too many great options for a well made quilted bag without going bankrupt in the process… UNTIL NOW- Rebecca Minkoff has outdone herself with the Quilted Love Bag!!! These bags are so well made and are priced at $295 for the standard size and $195 for the mini. Not exactly cheap but totally doable!!! They look and feel like a million bucks and are available in an array of colors and hardware options. I have one in the standard size. I love it and highly recommend it!

The Quilted Love bag can be worn with the chain long for cross body wear, with the chain doubled for shoulder wear or worn without the chain as a clutch! Who doesn’t love options??!!!! I also love how these bags have an outside pocket for phone or keys!

Timeless Monogrammed Handbags!

9 Jan

Who doesn’t love a monogrammed bag- or monogrammed anything for that matter?  I can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I just love slapping my initials on any accessory  that I can. This post focuses on two of my favorite timeless carryalls that will be around for seasons to come. Both of these classic shaped bags have top handles for handheld wear as well as a cross body strap for hands free wear(perfect for busy moms). They are both available in an assortment of rich colors and are made of supple leather. The bags are large enough to hold everything but not too oversized or bulky.  If you’ve been looking for an investment bag that won’t go out of style anytime soon- these are the bags for you. They make a statement without being too “showy” or over the top, making them the perfect bags whether you’re a ‘fancy’ or ‘casual’ fashionista.

Perfect Year Round Crossbody Bag!

19 May

I’m so excited to have received my very first Vince Camuto handbag and will be wearing it all year round. This gorgeous bag comes in a variety of colors, but I opted for black and white. I absolutely love black and white anything and this bag can be worn with burgundy in the Fall and peach in the Spring. Black and white is complimentary to most colors.  The great thing about Vince Camuto bags is that they are beautifully designed( they are reminiscent of Reed Krakoff bags)  are very well constructed.  in fact, they are so well made that I was shocked at how reasonably priced these bags are- I mean they are not $40 bags, but they are also not unattainable like many designer bags are unfortunately.  If you’re on a budget, this bag is worth saving for, but you won’t have to save long! Check out the bag below, I hope you love it as much as I do 🙂
