Celebrities and their Jimmy Choo Saba Hobo

Both Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson were spotted carrying the Jimmy Choo Saba Hobo. This bag is available in red or brown nappa leather and black suede. I love the this white color not only because it is a perfect color for summer, but also it is easy to wear with anything in your wardrobe. Jessica and Kate already showed you how to carry the bag with jeans and casual wears! Other features include the African inspired bangles and magnetic snap closure which complete the plain slouchy exterior. The inside is lined in suede with a zip pocket. The red and chocolate versions are available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $2450 and this adorable white bag is $3050 at Jimmy Choo. How do you feel about this bag? Who looks better in the Jimmy Choo Saba Hobo? I like Kate’s style more. How about you?

Hilary Duff’s Fendi Spy Bag

After a five-hour power outage, everything is back to normal now…finally got my Internet access back up.  Yeah! Tell you something you may not know. Although I am living in Los Angeles, I have never met any celebrities on the street. Yes, not a single one…Hilary Duff was spotted to carry the Fendi Spy Bag in Los Angeles again in the past few days. I love the Fendi Spy Bag, especially the popular plum color, but the one in Hilary’s hand is gorgeous as well. Her multi-color leather Fendi bag has double woven handles, a over-fold flap with snap closure and a hidden coin purse. Available at Net-A-Porter for $2190. So…How do you feel about this Spy Bag?

Burberry Medal Stud Mini Warrior

You have probably seen the large Burberry Medal Stud Warrior Bag carried in Rachel Bilson’s hand and the $22000 Alligator Warrior Bag.

What a Huge Bag?!

The Mulberry Roxanne Tote is beautiful but it’s not for everyone. At least not for me who is not very tall. This bag is so large with a dimension of 17.5″ W x 16″ H x 6.5″ D! Although it is light in weight but I am still curious about the weight when the bag is full. I hope it won’t hurt anybody’s shoulder even if someone has to carry this shiny tote for a whole day 😉 I love the glossy patent of the bag and I think its sharp color and size can definitely catch people’s attention. The tote comes in blue, red, black and white but red should be the hottest pick color. This vinyl tote has double handles, two big front pockets and a familiar buckle with magnetic snap closure. Fully fabric lined interior has a zip pocket and a patch pocket. This Mulberry bag is avaliable at Bloomingdale’s for $795. Like it?

Update: I tried on this bag today and I don’t think it’s really lightweight. But the blue color is as appealing as the red one. I love them both!

Introducing: Kara Ross Exotic Handbags

“Attention to detail” is what Kara Ross describes the key of “high quality”. After starting her company with Fine Jewelry about five years ago, Kara Ross expands her works of art to handbags, from clutches to shoulder bags, combining her passion for semi-precious stones with exotic skin. Kara expects women wearing her collections will have “an independent and unique sense of style, classic yet willing to take risks and stand out”. Kara aims to make unique jewelry and handbags with special textile and fabric in order to show a modern elegance with a vintage feeling in her designs.

Kara discovered her talent when her parents asked her to design a ring with a tourmaline stone taken during a trip to Africa. She dreamed of being a designer ever since. Nowadays, Kara’s collections are highly recognized and being featured in popular magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle as well as chosen by celebrities.

Share with you a couple of bags from the S/S 2008 collection that I like. The combination of exotics skin and fine craft work make her bags extraordinary and eye-catching. The company will start using other fabrics for Resort and S/S collection in 2009. Remember to keep an eye on that! 🙂

Louis Vuitton FireBird

The LV Jokes Bags was sold out, the Pochette Bonbon Rose purse is the recent popular topic among handbag blogs, What’s next? How about this Firebird bag? These bags are all in the Summer 08 collection and designed by Marc Jacobs together with the American artist, Richard Prince. If you asked me whether I love the new Firebird bag, I would tell you I don’t know. But I found that people are very crazy for this baby. I really admire Marc Jacobs for taking the bold to make changes, adding value to this luxury brand and keeping LV brand vibrant. No doubt why he becomes so famous.

The velvet trimmed Firebird, featuring LV classic monogram, is big! Dimensions are 16.1″ x 14.1″ x 3.5″. The new shape, the creative design and the color combination really make this bag alluring and special. But the price is stunning, too! Is it worth $5400? Well…the fact that it is currently out of stock online should give you the answer.
