D&G Printed Quilted Silk-Twill Shoulder Bag: Let’s Get Loud

In concept, I love this D&G bag: a shoulder-tote style, with contrasting front and back patterns, that folds fluidly into a clutch. Three bags in one – sounds like a great deal, right? But, alas, concept and execution can be two very different things. Three-for-one does not a bargain make when the bag in question […]

Givenchy: Obsedia Obsession

Perfection. The first word that came to mind when I laid eyes on the Givenchy Obsedia Minaudiere in powder pink python. Only Riccardo Tisci can create something that bears both Hello Kitty pretty-in-pink cuteness and a polished sophistication. An oxymoron you say? Maybe so, but that’s exactly how I see it. The gold-tone signature Givenchy […]

Carven Tweed Shoulder Bag: Let’s Get Up to Tweed

I love the look of Carven’s tweed shoes, but they are so uncomfortable I couldn’t deal with wearing them for more than a few minutes, much less conceive of buying them. Shoes are a wild card, but the beauty of bags? They always fit! Carven’s shoulder bag is a totally viable option. All of the […]

Pierre Hardy: Piping Hot!

Five years ago I fell in love with Pierre Hardy’s soft suede bags trimmed in patent leather piping but could not join the party because the bags were too huge for me to carry.  I am a big fan of the designer (he also designs Hermes shoes!) so it was quite a disappointment!  Flash forward […]

Jason Wu Miss Wu Shoulder Bag

Appropriately named Miss Wu, this has details of a classic lady-like bag but this is not for your shrinking violet. There is a boldness that is undeniable for a girl who always takes center stage. The contrasting colors on the body and hearty hardware provide a solid foundation for the thin straps and feminine shape. […]
