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?

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.

Valentino Bow Clutch

VS.

Is Christmas coming earlier this year? I don’t know how you feel about this Valentino Bow Clutch…but I really don’t like it at all. Let’s look at the pictures above! Do they look very similar to you? The left one is the Valentino Bow clutch and the one on the right is a Christmas bow I found on Google 🙂 The Valentino satin clutch comes in red, pink and black. I am okay with the black one, but the red one looks weird to me. The other two problems I have with this clutch are the top zipper and the shoulder strap. I don’t know if there is any other way to secure this clutch, but zipper is definitely not a good choice. I wonder what personal items the bow clutch can hold! I bet you would probably ask what happen to the Valentino brand when you see this clutch with the shoulder strap on! Go see for yourself. The clutch costs $1095 and pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman. I am not sure whether the clutch will get any fans, but I would suggest to start selling this clutch during Christmas time!

Miu Miu Matelasse Luxe Hobo

Dark colors are usually the trend for Fall and Winter, but we do love bright colors to make a difference sometimes, don’t we? The Italian fashion house Miu Miu introduced the cranberry color for its popular Matelasse Luxe Hobo to show us that bright color is also great for Fall season. Available to pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman, this medium Miu Miu bag is made of leather with braided double handles and buckled shoulder strap. Additional features include push lock closure and snap flap front pockets. If you would like a new bag to refresh your winter wardrobe, this is definitely a good choice. Retails for $1360.

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.
