Have you seen the Fall handbag collection from Gucci? I understand that Gucci is trying to make some changes, but I am afraid some of the designs have gone too far…Look at this “babouska” boston bag. The shape is okay to me, but there are too many studs throughout the bag. The dimensions, 13″L x 6.7″W x 8.3″, are pretty similar to the classic boston bag but the studs, the heart shape crest and the tassels together add a bit weights to this bag. I am a big fan of Gucci, but I will still say “nay” to this boston bag. Sorry~ This Gucci bag is available for pre-order at Gucci and it is selling for over $3000. Yes, no kidding! It’s $3195. Anyone thinks this babouska is really cool? Or is it worth that much?
I know…I know…I said I would find some bargain handbags for you, but this gorgeous Prada Nappa A Hobo really caught my eye and I couldn’t help featuring it. Sorry! This Prada Hobo is beautifully made of soft leather with ruched accents. It is finished off with a 9″ drop shoulder strap and a top zip closure. The interior is lined in signature jacquard with a zip pocket. The dimensions of this spacious bag are approx. 15″W x 10.5″H x 6″D, which allow you to carry all your personal items. Available at Saks for $2120.
Do you think this lovely Prada Hobo will be a hit this fall?
No colorful velour or big “Juicy Couture” logo on front, this large tote is still very attractive and adorable. When I first saw it at Nordrstrom, I was amazed that it is from Juicy Couture. Love its simplicity! The leather tote has stud accents, open top, double straps (8″ drop) and a logo plate noted “Juice Couture for nice girls who like stuff”. The interior has signature print lining with a zip pocket and cell phone pocket. This Juice Coutute Rock the Bag comes in several colors (Black, Olive. Neutral and Raspberry). Size: 18″W x 16″H x 5″D. Available at Nordstrom for $225.

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.
You have probably seen the large Burberry Medal Stud Warrior Bag carried in Rachel Bilson’s hand and the $22000 Alligator Warrior Bag. Both of these Warrior bags did not appeal to me, but I am quite in love with this small Medal Stud Warrior bag by Burberry. The mini leather warrior in nova check has medal stud all over. The open top with drawstring closure is secured by a magnetic clasp as well. The interior of this bag is divided by a center zip compartment. This cute shoulder bag measures 14″ x 8″ x 4″ and available at Burberry for $1995. Click Here to vote for this little warrior bag.

I love this bag and I like the name of this shopper. The Marc by Marc Jacobs “Faux Real” Shopper is made of synthetic leather with top zip closure. I like the way they “printed” the details of belted logo tag, studs, topstitching, and contoured corners on the bag. It’s kind of cute! The tote is available in several colors: Brown, Cream, Midnight and Azalea. Each costs $118 at eLuxury and Piperlime. The dimensions of 16.25″x 17.75″x 2″ are ideal size for grocery shopping. There will be two other similar versions for Fall Collection, visit Marc Jacobs Website for more detail.

The engaged couple, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, was spotted shopping in Paris before their wedding next week, according to CM. These lovebirds tried to keep the site of wedding a secret and would not announce the location until the day of wedding. What a cute couple!
Ashlee was carrying her Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Patent bag again when visiting Dior and Chanel boutiques in Paris. Her bag is available in two sizes and I guess Ashlee was carrying the larger one with the dimension of 17″W x 18″H. This black quilted patent leather bag embossed with crocodile pattern has gold tone hardware, shoulder strap and magnetic snap closure. Ashlee’s bag is $1595 and the medium one is $1395 and both are sold at YSL. This Tribute Bag is adorable and looks pretty nice on Ashlee, but if I could afford this bag, I would spend $300 more to buy the YSL Medium Downtown Tote. 😛

The Poll I started about two weeks ago, “What is your most favorite designer brand?”, showed that most of the Handbaggers are big fans of Louis Vuitton. So let me introduce to you today the Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Beforedark & Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Afterdark.
Both bags are designed by Richard Prince again! Let’s have a round of applause to Richard for his wonderful work! The Beforedark bag on the left has a detachable chain strap with a size of 13.2″ x 7.1″ x 4.7″. You can carry it on your shoulder or as a hand-held. And the Afterdark clutch on the right is smaller with the dimension of only 3.1″ x 7.3″ x 9″ and it also comes in poudre color. Both clutches are made in monogram motard leather with flap closure and golden hardware. I think both bags are great for evening or dinner. But I prefer the Afterdark because of its smaller size, plus I don’t really like the chain strap on the Beforedark. Sorry! Avaliable at Louis Vuitton.
We all know that Victoria Beckham loves Hermes bags and it seems that she cannot step out without her Hermes babies. But Victoria was spotted to carry her Miu Miu Harlequin Leather Tote little more recently. Her leather tote is finished in green and grey tones and it has so much eye-catching features such as the multicolor Harlequin patchwork, plaited single top handle and the adjustable shoulder strap with golden brass hooks. Victoria shows us that this Miu Miu bag can work well with many different outfits. I would love this bag a lot more if the size was reduced by half. With the dimension of approx. 17.3″ x 13″ x 5.5″, it can carry many personal items, but I still wish it was somewhat smaller. Available for $1749 at mytheresa.com.
The Miu Miu Harlequin Leather Tote has a similar style in green and grey tones. This tote has the same size as the one above but with double top handles. It is also available at mytheresa for around $1564.
