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!

Longchamp Rodeo Luxe Patent Satchel

The new Longchamp Rodeo Luxe Patent Satchel is gorgeous! I know it comes in black and orange color, but I just fall in love with the trendy violet color.  Longchamp is well-known for its simple and practical. I know I know! I can tell from this satchel. You may want to carry it as a travelling bag as it is spacious but light in weight. It can also be expandable with exterior zippers which gives you more room. The classic shape, double handles, an exterior zip pocket and a magnetic snap closure make the bag perfect! Check it out at Bloomingdales for $ 730. Vote here.

I stepped in a Nordstrom retail store the other day and saw this cute bag with “Love Marc” print throughout. I love the shape of the bag and the size is good enough to carry all your personal items such as wallet, ipod, cell phone and makeup. This bag is made of rich patent leather with double rolled handles. Protective metal feet at base. Zip top closure. Signature logo plate on front. 10″H x 12″L x 7″D. What is so good about this bag? It costs less than $300 to take this bag home. Other colors are available. Buy it through Neiman Marcus. Vote for it.

Valentino Blossom Satchel

What a cute satchel! I love this Valentino Satchel! I like the pink color and I like the pleated rose blossoms at the center of the bag. The snake skin handles and Nappa and ayers leather make this bag special. Black color is available for this satchel. I am not going to show it here because I like pink more! Other features like inside zip pocket, top zip closure and cotton canvas lining. 13″W x 11″H x 7″D. This cute bag is $1895 at Saks. Vote here.

You don’t always see these bags being sold everywhere like Gucci and LV, do you? Loeffler Randall is a pretty new brand name which was launched by Jessie Randall and Brian Murphy. Jessie received the CFDA Swarovski Award in 2007 for Accessory Design while Brain also won a couple of advertising awards.

Being not able to find the shoes that they want to wear, the couple decided to develop their own brand. Loeffler Randall started in 2004 by selling footwear and expanded to handbag industry in Fall 2006, followed by launching ready to wear collection in Fall 2007.

From the official website, they mentioned that, “At Loeffler Randall, we have set out to create the perfect lifestyle assortment for the chic, modern girl – from the ultimate ballerina flat to the perfect luxury satchel – and starting this season – to the most beautiful winter coat. When we began in 2004, our idea was to design the kind of shoes that we wanted to wear but couldn’t find – shoes that possess an understated elegance, are well cut and undeniably feminine. Handbags were added to the assortment for Fall 2006. For Fall 2007, Loeffler Randall’s RTW collection makes its debut. The Loeffler Randall brand embodies luxury and downtown elegance and has been enthusiastically embraced by the fashion press and the finest retailers in the world.” Loeffler Randall
