Trend Alert: Go Ahead and Embellish

Everything is very busy this season and you want it that way. Go big or go home as they say but more accurately, go big or don’t go home with me.

Top Striking Straps: What’s in a Strap?

Or should the question be, “What’s in the rest of the bag?” Because when the strap is all you notice, it might seem like the strap is all that matters. Not quite, although a strap can make – or break – a bag. Success lies in the perfect balance. When your bag’s strap is striking, its body needs to be neutral and measured, not too much of anything, so the spotlight remains where it should. Then again, it can’t be too much of nothing, either. I’m not interested in boring bags! Here, straps with the right stuff and bags to match…

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

Right now, the overarching trend in bags is everything optimistic and fun. It’s not the shape that makes a bag a must-have anymore. Instead of specific silhouettes, it’s all about the vivacious and expressive. Think details that catch the eye for bags that are personality-driven and tell a story – so you can tell your own story with your bag. What’s not to love about that?!

Top 5 Mardi Gras Bags

Top 5 Mardi Gras Bags: Phat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but any holiday that encourages you to indulge in decadent foods (Did you know Mardi Gras was originally a binging festival so people could stock up, so to speak, on fatty foods ahead of giving up their favorite treats for Lent?), wear anything and everything flashy, and let loose in the streets gets my support. Maybe you’re storming the French Quarter as we speak or maybe you didn’t even realize beads were being tossed around with reckless abandon today.

Chinese New Year Bags

A Bag for Every Sign: Happy Chinese New Year!

Today officially marks the first day of the Year of the Monkey! My son was born in the Year of the Golden Monkey, so I’m naturally biased towards this sign. Monkeys are most creative and intelligent, and they’re also known for being playful, enthusiastic, and highly social. This is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey, and it’s being said anything can happen in 2016, particularly when it comes to personal endeavors. Might I suggest acquiring a new bag as your first personal endeavor of the new year?

This spring is all about projecting an innocent spirit. I’m loving the sense of optimism and joyful attitude that’s already in full effect. It’s the perfect way to start off the new year, one that, by the look of things, is guaranteed to be a good one. It also looks like it will be nothing but picnics all season, and I am definitely okay with that! Come prepared to soak up the sun with the right bag…
