Coach Signature Stripe Patent Convertible Shoulder Bag

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this NEW Coach shoulder Bag! The Coach Signature Stripe Patent Convertible Bag is made of jacquard fabric with patent leather trimming and is perfect for daily use. It can be carried on shoulder or cross body with its 21″ removable shoulder strap. Dimensions are 13″L x 14″H x 2.5″W, which definitely gives you enough room to carry everything you need during the day. Some other good things about this bag?…it comes in four colors and it costs less than $300!!! 8) I guess I will soon become a big fan of Coach as their bags are soooo… adorable and affordable! Hey girls, they are already available at Coach! I really can’t wait to get one of these!

Ashlee Simpson YSL Tribute Patent Bag

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. 😛

Longchamp Legende

The Longchamp Legende Tote was spotted on Kate Moss’s hand last season and here comes the white color version for the S/S 2008 collection. I started to pay attention to the French fashion house Longchamp after seeing the violet Rodeo Luxe Patent Satchel last month. And this White Legende bag made me totally fall in love with the brand. And the good thing about Longchamp’s bags are they are always under $1000!! This patent leather tote was initially inspired by a doctor bag of seventies and now regarded by Longchamp as the “It” bag of the season. Features include handles with double top zip closure, protective metal feet, leather key attachment and large zip pockets on front for holding personal items. The tote is available in 2 different sizes: (Large) 17.75″ x 12.5″ x 8″for $980; (Small) 14.5″ x 10.25″ x 5.5″ for $825. How can you resist this gorgeous bag that has high quality leather and great summer color with such a reasonable price?

Eva Longoria and her Coach Patent Francine

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. The patent leather bag in the picture has a big front pocket with a turn lock closure which allows quick access to personal items. 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.

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!

Prada Degrade Patent Clutch

If you are a big fan of Prada, you probably would not have missed the Prada Degrade Patent Clutch. Even if you are not a Prada lover, this bag should have caught your attention. Three reasons to love this clutch: bright gradient color, big clutch and patent. There is also magnetic button closure and cream topstitching. As I said, this clutch is little big with a size of 5.3″L x 12.6″W x 1.4″D. Whether the price of $950 is reasonable? You be the judge! Various colors are available and pre-order at Neiman Marcus.

Dooney & Bourke Patent Leather Hayden Bag

D&BD&B2

I am not a big fan of Dooney & Bourke, but now I will pay more attention to this brand. Look at the limited edition Dooney & Bourke patent leather hayden bag and you will know why. The glossy red is really attractive! The bag with shiny patent leather is just perfect for this season.  The inside is lined with zip pocket and cell phone pocket. What is so great about this bag besides the color? The hardware is finished in 18 carat gold! Other colors are available, but the red one is definitely  the best among them. Retails at Dooney & Bourke for $500.

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
