Juicy Couture Slouch leather tote

I paid much more attention to the Juicy Couture’s Fall handbag Collection as many of them are really beautiful and practical. Here is another one. The Juicy Couture Slouch leather tote is simple yet adorable and is definitely great for everyday. Available in dusty powder pink leather, this black handbag is made of supple leather and finished with the gold designer logo embossed hardware. Other features include double handles and pleating around side and a fastening button at the top. Do you like it too? Buy it at Net-A-Porter for $525!

A Bag or a Dress?

I am not familiar with Thomas Wylde and the only thing I know is the Nomad Fringe Bag from Thomas Wylde is ugly! To me, it looks more like a dress than a handbag! What makes it even worse is the leather bands with tassel in the end on both front and back. I don’t care whether the shoulder strap is removable and if it has magnetic snap closure, I just hate this purse. There is one more thing that surprises me. The price! OMG! $2800 for a bag like that! I wonder who would want to buy it! 🙁

Burberry Prorsum Medium Lowry Shoulder Bag

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!

Juicy Couture ‘Z.J.N.’ Satchel

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?

Marc by Marc Jacobs Wristlet intrecciato clutch

It does look like a L.A.M.B. clutch, doesn’t it? But when you take a closer look at it, you’ll see the check pattern is finished with black and gold metallic leather instead of the L.A.M.B’s black and white pattern. This pretty thing is the Wristlet intrecciato clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs. The purse has top zip closure, signature lock detail and a leather wrist strap. Measuring 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 1″, the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is perfect for evening. It looks nice with the black dress and shoes shown above, but you can also pair this purse with jeans for a more casual look! Available at Net-A-Porter for $260. Have a great weekend, everyone and enjoy the Olympic Games!

Kooba Jenny Shoulder Bag

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?

Jessica Simpson and her Gucci Boston Bag

I am not very interested in the relationship between Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo. I don’t care whether Jessica should be blamed on the Dallas Cowboys lost neither! What interests me the most is the Gucci Babouska Boston Bag that Jessica carried when she visited Tony’s training camp two days ago. This eye-catching Boston bag features red leather with suede trim, double handles and zip top closure. The tassels, the new heart-shaped Gucci crest and the D-ring detail add extra points for the classic Gucci Boston bag! If I were Jessica, I would wear light color clothing to make this bag stands out further! This roomy bag, measuring 15″L x 7.9″W x 12.6″H, are selling at Bergdorf Goodman for $2595.

Coach Hamptons Leather Carryall

A good news to all of you, especially to Coach Lovers! According to NY Times, the Coach company “has responded to the economic slowdown by offering lower prices, particularly at its outlet, or factory, stores. In the past, a handbag at a Coach factory store might be on sale for a week or two at $149. That same bag might cost $129 nowadays”. That means, there is a chance that we can buy a Coach bag at a lower price in the future! Hurrah!!! I wish there would be a price markdown on this latest Coach Hamptons Leather Carryall, too.  Oh My God! I am so in love with the berry color although this bag also comes in Mahogany and Black! This tote is beautifully done in lightweight pebbled leather and the gold hardware matches perfectly with the color of the bag. Simple, Stylish, Practical, Affordable…there are so many words I want to use to describe this Coach purse. Measuring 14″L x 10″H x 4.25″W, you can get this tote at Coach stores for $348.

Yves Saint Laurent Muse Two Bags

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!)

Prada Nappa S Shoulder Bag

The Prada Nappa S Shoulder Bag is one of the bags that I don’t like in the Fall Collection. Why? Let’s look at the bag and you will know. I am sorry but I have to say that. The “elephant ears” attached to the side of the bag and the plex made chain strap just dont match with the bag itself. I think the purse alone looks fine, but the other details make it look strange! The chain strap really downgrades the bag. Please tell me how you feel about the bag when it’s open! Please…Retails for $1695 at Saks. What a big disappointment from Prada!
