November 2012


Have you ever fantasized about having the kind of bag that makes other women salivate over your style and reach as soon as you walk in the door? Some bags are eye catching with trendy designs, currently-in colors and sometimes just studded with rhinestones to pop out and make an outfit look cool. This is the kind of bag that doesn’t need any gimmick. The cut, shape and quality are for the kind of woman who wants a piece that will last forever like an investment.

This bag is made of luxurious, soft calf leather of the finest quality. The dual carrying handles allow it to be held in the crook of your arm, where it can be subtly showed off. The metallic studs on the bottom surface allow it to be placed on any surface without getting dusty or damaged. The flap closure with padlock ornament makes it safe to carry cash in and adds a stylish touch. The leather interior lining will put to rest any doubt about the quality and make of this bag.

The Alexa Studded Calfskin Leather Bag is one our most loved designs. The studded bottom surface of the bag is a pleasant surprise. What seems like a simple black tote has a studded rockstar underbelly. This bag is enough to make even the shyest of girls feel confident and edgy. If you want an extra boost of rock and roll glam, this bag is the way to go.

The army of golden studs on bottom make this an excellent accessory for a wild night on the town but don’t detract away from the subdued look of the rest of the bag should you want to carry it to work. For when you do need it for a serious day at work or college, it’s got an adjustable strap which can convert it into a shoulder bag and make it easier to lug around. It’s black color means it can go with a wide variety of outfits.

However, it’s most cutting edge look is when paired with a leather jacket or jeggings. If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be the lead in a celebrated band, this one of these looks paired with the above bag! It’s sure to be an exhilarating day.

If you’re interested in mixing it up, it also comes in camel, chocolate and olive.



If you never had to even think about money again and could live life without restrictions or inhibitions, you’d be grinning from ear to ear right? Apparently money can’t buy everything, even if you’re a billionaire heiress. Nikki Hilton appeared quite sober as she was seen hoofing it around the shops in Beverly Hills.

Even in casual short shorts, a gray tank and a black vest, she looked the part. Even though younger sister Paris is more famous, we think Nikki’s style is more flexible and up to date. While Paris still dresses like it’s 2003, Nikki is more often seen in current trends. Take this shoulder bag, for example.

It’s slightly different from other flap bags with metal chains. The rockstar-esque studs set it apart and give it an edgy yet chic look. The no frills leather straps keep this from being a flashy, attention-grabbing bag. The luxurious leather prevents it from blending into the background, reminding passerbys that Nikki is not just another skinny girl. One that’s a little more privileged than most.


Blake Lively is well known for many things. When her career first went from obscure B list films and hit the big time in the Gossip Girl series, she suddenly became famous for her on screen outfits. And that hair! Suddenly girls who had been obsessed with straightening every strand of hair to get a perfect sheen began to think of ways to it look messy and slept in. Years later, she’s established herself not as a trendy icon but one that will eventually come to represent the late 2000s.

These series of pictures a testament to that. Most often spotted carrying a new statement bag or another, here she caries a classic flap bag. The chained bag also goes into the “iconic looks of the late 2000’s category.” These past few years, we have loved seeing chains on bags and that is a trend no one seems to be tired of yet. In fact, we’ve been spotting thicker, more rustic looking chains and metalwork on handbags on the runway.

Black is a classic color for bags because if you’re going to invest a little extra moolah for a great bag, it should be one you can wear with a wide variety of outfits, in different seasons and even years later. Trendy colors and cuts are also a must have but they do tend to look dated far more quickly. This bag on Blake is perfect for just about anyone.


Marion Cotillard is best known for the mermaid inspired dress that she wore to her Academy Award win for La Vie en Rose. Pictures from that night catapulted her into fame in the fashion world across the globe. No one can look red carpet worthy all the time but Marion is one of those leading ladies that look beautiful even when they’re casually dressed.


One way to look top notch even when dressed in airport comfort-clothes is to carry a well-made bag. While the bag doesn’t have to be designer, that definitely helps. Not because logos are what make a beautiful accessory but because what makes a bag great is quality materials, intricate details and top quality manufacturing.

The one she carried to the airport is a duffel bag with a long strap, making it convenient to carry. The top handles added versatility. The bag features a signature cannage pattern on the exterior in large print. A gold hang tags are a classy touch.


Katie Holmes was a fashionista in full-force in the early years of the TomKat whirlwind romance. In the last few years, the actress has seemed like she’s deathly tired of the media attention. To ward off press attention and paparazzi hound dogs, the young mom stopped stepping out looking like a million bucks.

It seemed like she just wanted to blend in and be left alone. Now and then however, she’s spotted carrying a cool bag or wearing interesting shoes. Bags seem to be more of her thing though. (She’s been spotted wearing the same boots all of last season, shockingly.)

This bag has two flaps and creates the funny illusion that the viewer’s vision has doubled. The optical trick makes you look at it more intensely, a cooler way of getting someone to notice your bag than having a logo plastered on it. This quirky design shows that the bag isn’t just a run of the mill mass-produced item, it was designed by someone who puts thought and creativity into their work.

Even though Katie looks like a miffed superstar with her oversized sunglasses, cold steely glare and designer bag, she’s traveling on New York’s subway like an ordinary commoner just like the rest of us. Seems like a woman who is grounded, down to earth, highly fashionable but very weary of the media scrutiny, even though some speculate she engineers her life to keep public interest growing. What do you make of this leading lady and her complicated yet intriguing life and fashion sense?


Lady Gaga is always a new character every time she steps out. Sometimes she’s the epitome of class. Sometimes she’s just a hot mess. Sometimes we have no idea what she’s trying to be (a meat dress? really? still not over that.) Here, she looks like she could be Cruella de Ville’s more fabulous younger sister.

The bag she’s carrying is the perfect color for a monochromatic outfit – simply chic black. One way to make sure a tote looks fabulously expensive is to pick one with simple, sturdy handles and a square base.

A well-defined and symmetrical base prevents a bag from slouching at the bottom, something that makes it look cheaply made and worn out. It’s also important to hold it on your shoulder almost as though it’s delicate – dragging a bag around like you don’t care what happens to it can make an elite bag look tacky! So wear you handbag with pure confidence, whatever brand it is!
