Longchamp 'Roseau' tote

This Longchamp 'Roseau' tote would be perfect for my mom.  Her birthday is on December 25 (yes, she has the same birthday as Jesus) and I wanted to give her a very special present.  She likes loves bags and I think I  got my penchant for bags from her.  She actually gave me a Coach tote for my birthday last January.

If you are looking for a gift to give your mom this Christmas or for her birthday, you might want to consider this bag.  You can have this at Nordstrom for $495.  This is also available in black.

Lanvin jeweled 'Nyota' shoulder bag

After the catastrophic flowered denim tote, Lanvin strikes back with this jeweled 'Nyota' shoulder bag that is burning with style.  If you have a bag that is this gorgeous, you don't need an elaborate dress... a LBD is enough.  You can have this at Barneys for $2,890.

Proenza Schouler cross body saddle bag


The first time I hear of Proenza Schouler when the Olsen twins wore the brand's shoes in one red carpet event a very long time ago.  I check out their designs from time to time and I find them chic and wearable.  School girl.  Chic school girl. This saddle bag really reminds me of school girls... Japanese school girls in particular.  I wonder if it, in any way, inspired the designers in making this bag.  The strap can be removed, it closes via turn lock and has a jacquard interior.  Everything is made in leather.

You can have this bag at Barneys for $1,850 and this is also available in brown.

Lanvin flowered denim tote


If there's one thing that I remembered most about my teacher, it is her way of saying"Wrong spelling, is wrong." My favorite thing to do when I was in grade school was to spell words.  I perfect each spelling quiz every time and I am proud of it.  So, it's a little bit disappointing to see that Lanvin actually spelled Lanvin in this flowered denim tote as LANVIM. And they are expecting us to buy this for $1,745.

Lanvin, like what my teacher said, "wrong spelling, IS wrong".

Hello Kitty 'Nerd' plaid tote bag


I have never seen Hello Kitty wearing glasses before so I was surprised of this 'Nerd' plaid tote bag by Loungefly.  It is cute that it brought me back to the days where owning any Hello Kitty item was a status symbol.  If you still have that inner kid in you, you can have this for $52 at Torrid.

Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Ozzie Square Lucy' satchel

I like love Marc Jacobs' bags.  They are so stylish yet easy on the pocket.  I have been wanting to have an Hermes 'Kelly' bag but in my world, it is equivalent to asking world peace.  I am glad that there is a Marc Jacobs bag to alleviate the excessive wanting for an expensive bag.  Here, 'Ozzie Square Lucy' satchel in its pink glory is so lust worthy.  It is made of faux ostrich leather but who cares, it is simply gorgeous.  And it doesn't look like it is faux.  This is available at Zappos for $398.

Splurge, Save Steal: Animal Print Hobos

I like hobos, it is my preferred style when buying bags.  I don't know exactly the reason for my being biased to hobos but anyway here are animal print hobos that are fierce and stylish... splurge, save, steal.

SPLURGE

STEAL
Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Hiller' hobo, $377.89 at My Theresa.

Mary Frances 'Pearls of Wisdom' wristlet



What do you think of this bag?  It is so intricately and elaborately designed, I wonder how many working hours the craftsman took to create this bag? 


As you can very well see, this 'Pearls of Wisdom' wristlet by Mary Frances is entirely made of pearls, beads and baubles.  Oh, by the way, this bag is made in the Philippines--which makes it even more special to me because I am a Filipino.  This would be your best accessory for special evening parties.  Just this and your LBD... perfect.  

You can own this for $272 at Endless.

Lanvin grosgrain flower tote


I wanted to love this grosgrain flower tote by Lanvin.  I really do.  But, I am having doubts because the flower accent looks sad and wilted.  I wish Lanvin perked it up a little.  Anyway, this bag is available at Neiman Marcus for $1,790 and is also available in navy blue.

Lanvin 'Genereux' shoulder bag


After featuring Miu Miu's camera case bag in bright orange, here is another bright orange 'Genereux' shoulder bag by Lanvin.  Who says bright colors are just for Spring and Summer?  You can actually wear brights even during Fall and Winter.  This bag for example can be your accessory during Yuletide parties.  It is just the right size and the huge ribbon and charm are perfect to bring out the lady in you.  This bag can be yours for $1,260 at Neiman Marcus.
