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?
The Yves Saint Laurent Muse Two Bags are sophisticated in style, elegant and timeless. That’s why it always catches my eye. You have probably seen the Muse Two Bags in different fabrics and color, haven’t you? This fall, the French fashion house made this adorable bag in multicolor leopard-print hair hide. Other features include goldtone hardware, top handles and circle lock to secure the bag. Not everyone is a fan of leopard-print, so this is a bag you will either like it or hate it! Exclusively at Neiman Marcus for $3,500. So tell me whether you like this Muse Two Bag or not? Or you love the other Muse Two Bags more?! (For the following poll, you can choose more than 1 bag!)
The Botkier Morgan Satchel is one of the adorable bags in the fall collection. Available for pre-order at Nordstrom, this Botkier’s bags are functional yet stylish. The supple calfskin leather satchel has a top flap with zip closure, exterior side pockets and double handles (7″ drop). The tassel details make the bag look super trendy. I love the grape color, so it will be my first choice, followed by the black one. This small Morgan Satchel has a size of 15 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Definitely a great choice for Fall. Sold for $650. Vote for this beautiful Botkier Bag!
I did not plan to talk about Miu Miu bags again at first but I couldn’t stop featuring these Miu Miu Nappa Patch Petals Bags. It’s not because they are attractive to me, instead they look pretty scary, or I should say ugly. Sorry, Miu Miu fans! I am also a fan of Miu Miu, but these two just keep me away. The one on the left is Miu Miu Nappa Patch Petals Satchel. When you take a closer look at the exterior, it looks kind of like a pangolin! With the double leather handles and top zip closure, this bag has a size of 15.5″ x 12″ x 5″ and satin lined interior with inside zip pocket. Retails for $ 1240. The black leather Miu Miu shoulder bag on the right has features such as adjustable strap and top zip closure. I am okay with this bag but it will never be my favorite. The bag measures 15″ x 10″ x 4″ and sells for $1155. Both are available for pre-order at Saks. Tell us how you feel about these bags at our community.
Available for pre-order at Saks for $1420, the Miu Miu Nappa Patch Tote is designed in a patchwork style with multicolor nappa leather. This Miu Miu tote comes with top handles and two snap closures. The interior is lined in purple satin with a zip pocket. Size: 15.5″ x 12.5″ x 5″. This purse is gorgeous and would be a nice choice for fall season. But it would look perfect to me if the bag had a top zipper closure! Discuss the Miu Miu bag at the community.

When I looked for a great handbag to write about, I found her – The Harbour Satchel from 7 For All Mankind, which is famous for its premium denim. I was totally attracted by the color and the shape of this bag. The light blue color mixed with the white double leather handles make the bag looks like a cloud in the sky. This 7 For All Mankind satchel has magnetic top closure and zip pockets at sides. You can definitely carry a lot in this lightweight bag. The zigzag print interior has zip pocket and patch pockets. Don’t you think this bag reminds us of the picnic time in summer? Although it is a $345 linen bag, I think it is worth that much. Available at revolveclothing.com.
Did you get good deal yesterday? I hope you did! And Today, I want to introduce you the Irish-born designer, Pauric Sweeney and his luxury handbags. It’s very interesting that Pauric didn’t start his work as a fashion writer, editor or designer but trained as an architect in Philadelphia! He first designed furniture, then jewelry and moved to the handbag world in 2000. Pauric got more attention and recognition after winning the New Generation Award for two consecutive seasons. What makes his designer bags so special? Look at this two-tone python skin bag. I love the color combination. The shiny silver finish with a fade of pink paired with the brown leather handles make this bag very eye-catching. Agree?! The Pauric Sweeney tote with a zip fastening is lined with inside pockets. This stylish bag, measuring 15.7″ x 13.7″ x 6″, is a chic option for weekend or party. Available at Browns Fashion for approx. $2568. Do you like this gorgeous bag?
While hanging out with some girl pals, Eva Longoria was seen with a salmon pink dress and the Coach Patent Francine in teal color. Her outfit looks casual, but the color of her dress matching with the bright color bag are sort of eye catching. Eva is beautiful! I like her.

With the adjustable and removable 45″ strap, you can carry the bag on shoulder or across the body. Other features include protective feet at base and interior legacy strip fabric lining with a zip pocket. This roomy bag has a size of 16″ x 11 1/2″ x 6 3/4″ and comes in two other colors. Retails for $798 at Coach.
