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!
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.
There are at least three reasons why I feature this Kooba Jenny Shoulder Bag today – The fashionable design, the eye-catching glossy red color and the perfect size for everyday use. The other good thing about this bag is the adjustable strap that allows you to carry it over your shoulder or as a messenger bag. The side zip closure gives you extra room to hold a lot of stuff, even a small notebook. This gorgeous patent leather bag is selling for $595 and available at both Nordstrom and Bloomingdales. Isn’t it very beautiful but affordable?

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.
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?

I am not very familiar with the Jennifer Alfano brand nor her handbags, but the Karina bag from Jennifer Alfano really caught my eye. So I decided to do some researches on this wonderful brand. Well…Jennifer started her career as a writer and editor at well-known magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. When being the fashion feature director, she was unable to find the bags that she likes, so Jennifer decided to create her own line of luxury bags to fulfill the needs of us, gals! Her bags are produced in Florence and handcrafted from “finest Italian leathers and exotics, with jewelry-based signature hardware”. Look at the Karina collection. Don’t they look gorgeous? I like the one in the middle! The combination of python skin and the natural pattern dress up this shoulder bag. I love the gold link chain and oval snap closure which add elegance to the Karina. These three bags have the same dimension of 11.5″W x 7.5″H x 2.5″D. Want to see more? Visit the website of Jennifer Alfano.
