Juicy Couture Slouch leather tote

I paid much more attention to the Juicy Couture’s Fall handbag Collection as many of them are really beautiful and practical. Here is another one. The Juicy Couture Slouch leather tote is simple yet adorable and is definitely great for everyday. Available in dusty powder pink leather, this black handbag is made of supple leather and finished with the gold designer logo embossed hardware. Other features include double handles and pleating around side and a fastening button at the top. Do you like it too? Buy it at Net-A-Porter for $525!

A Bag or a Dress?

I am not familiar with Thomas Wylde and the only thing I know is the Nomad Fringe Bag from Thomas Wylde is ugly! To me, it looks more like a dress than a handbag! What makes it even worse is the leather bands with tassel in the end on both front and back. I don’t care whether the shoulder strap is removable and if it has magnetic snap closure, I just hate this purse. There is one more thing that surprises me. The price! OMG! $2800 for a bag like that! I wonder who would want to buy it! 🙁

Burberry Prorsum Medium Lowry Shoulder Bag

Looking for a gorgeous bag for work? Then you must take a look at this medium size Lowry Shoulder Bag by Burberry Prorsum. Made from black leather, this shoulder bag has double handles, top zip closure, detachable shoulder strap and protective base. The panel pleating detail beautifully completes the look of the bag. Interior is fully lined with a zip pocket and pouch pockets. I love the size and design of the bag and it is definitely a chic option for work. Available at Net-A-Porter for $2795. I wish you all had a wonderful long weekend!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Bow Bag clutch

A clutch from a great designer for a cheap price does not necessary mean wonderful. Look at this Bow Bag Clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs and you will understand. This silver metallic leather clutch alone is okay but looks awful in the net overlay. Perhaps, the bag should be renamed as “Clutch in a Net” to attract some attention. Also, the two zipped compartments are so tiny that you can hardly hold anything inside. $250 is a great price for a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse, but not on this one! Retails at Net-A-Porter.

I’m back

Hi everyone, I want to apologize for not posting anything on the blog for the whole week. I am back and everything will return to normal from today! I had a wonderful holiday last week. I hope all of you enjoyed the Olympic games and at the same time, had a chance to get a handbag for Fall season;)

Jimmy Choo Carolina shoulder bag

Look at this gorgeous shoulder bag from Jimmy Choo. Designed with purple eel skin, this Carolina bag has features such as the removable chain and python shoulder strap, gold tone magnetic closure and fold over flap. The good thing about this bag is you can carry it as a shoulder bag or a clutch. The huge interior is fully lined with a zip pocket. You won’t expect the price to be low for this adorable bag, will you? Available at Net-A-Porter for $1795.

Juicy Couture ‘Z.J.N.’ Satchel

We’ve seen the classic terry and velour bags from Juicy Couture, right? But do you know that “Juicy Couture is a mix of California fantasy with English eccentricity”? That’s how the co-founder, Gela Nash-Taylor, described Juicy Couture to a Washington Post reporter. Gela continued the explanation with an interesting metaphor, “Think modern fairy-tale girl meets rock start, and they move into an old English manor house to become Juicy royalty.” Interesting?!  Alright, let me get to the point. I am not a big fan of Juicy Couture but the Juicy Couture “Z.J.N” Satchel really caught my attention. When I first saw this bag, I thought it was something from Prada or Miu Miu. I know I was wrong once I saw the price. Their Fall Collection is a bit more grown-up and something new that we should pay attention to. This Juicy Couture bag is beautiful yet affordable. I love this red bag although it is also available in black. The red Satchel with soft leather has top zip closure and interior pockets. Retails for $450 at Nordstrom. How do you feel about this Juicy Couture Satchel?
