Marc Jacobs 'Jeannie' jeweled tweed clutch


How I love Summer parties!  I am already getting giddy about the thought and this Marc Jacobs 'Jeannie' jeweled tweed clutch makes longing even more for Summer to come soon.  I think this clutch is very beach party appropriate.  Textures of nature is in and Marc Jacobs incorporated it really well.  

This clutch is available at Net-A-Porter for $995.

Mulberry 'Bayswater' tote...my current bag crush


Well, this is nothing.

I am just infatuated with this Mulberry 'Bayswater' tote.  The simple design looks stunning.  This is an epitome of less is more.  It has a top zip covered with a flap, turn lock, two top handles and is fully lined in suede.  This is also available in my other favorite colors--blue and hot pink.

You can have this at Net-A-Porter for $1,150.

Marc Jacobs 'Saddlery Sophie' shoulder bag


Saddle bags are in.  I mean the real bag and not the one that you want to remove surgically from your body.

You know where saddle bags will lead to... equestrienne look.  Right!  Take a look at this Marc Jacobs 'Saddlery Sophie' shoulder bag that is oh so equestrienne.  This is one of the best saddle bags I have seen so far.  It has a removable buckled leather strap with top handle to make it into a satchel.  

You can have this at Zappos for $478.

Rebecca Minkoff 'Boyfriend' shoulder bag


I have heard of boyfriend jeans and boyfriend shirts but this is the first time I have heard read of boyfriend bag.  This Rebecca Minkoff boyfriend shoulder bag looks nothing like a man's bag to me.  It has gold plated chain link strap and knuckle design on the front pocket.  The zip top closure has a tasseled pull and the inside is lined with canvas.  The entire bag is made of leather.

This bag is available at Boutique To You for $297.

Louis Vuitton 'Chrissie Monogram Multicolore' hobo


If there is one bag that I wish to have this Christmas, it is this Louis Vuitton 'Chrissie MM' multicolor hobo with golden little spikes.  I like it because it is a mix of rocker chic and femininity.  It is big enough to carry my everyday essentials, has a single strap, zip and flat opening, two inner pockets and one outer pocket to keep things organized.  This is just one of the designs of Takashi Murakami for Louis Vuitton.

Here is the white version.

Both are available at the brand's website for $2,720.

Fendi floral linen cover to dress up and protect your bag

At first I thought this is a bag that you can remove the straps to make it a clutch but after reading the description, it is a bag cover.

If you have Fendi bags that measure 6 1/4" H X 10" W X 4 1/2" D, this cover will perfectly fit.  It is trimmed with multicolor hibiscus and has a slot for the bag handles.

This Fendi floral linen bag cover costs $1,195 at Bergdorf Goodman.  I personally think this is not a wise buy because bags come with a protective cover when you buy them, and I think it is enough, unless your aim is to dress up your bag AND protect them at the same time while you are using them.

Miu Miu raffia fisherman's satchel


Raffia bags are slowly making a comeback.  If you are planning to go on vacation somewhere tropical, a raffia bag is your best accessory.  Take a cue from big bag designers as raffia things slowly but surely invading every known shopping sites.  Here is Miu Miu's raffia fisherman's satchel that can be your companion on your tropical adventure and can accompany you in Spring or Summer when you get back to your homeland.

This bag can be yours at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,450.

Dolce & Gabbana multi-charm woven raffia shoulder bag


I have never seen a bag with so much charms before. I hope the charms of this Dolce & Gabba shoulder bag can be removed and be used as pins on clothes.  Don't you find it a great idea?  This shoulder bag is for the brand's Cruise 2011 collection.  You can start ordering now at Luisa Via Roma but shipping will start on March 11.  You can have this for $3,226.20.

Barneys 'At Swim-Two Birds' book clutch



I think book clutches are the trend right now.  Here, Barneys has their own version--'At Swim-Two Birds' book clutch that is covered with satin.  It actually looks more like a vanity kit than a clutch.  If you like it, you can have this at $595.

Fendi 'Savana Big Mamma' chain link handle shoulder bag

It has been a long time since I featured a Fendi bag.  Here, Fendi's 'Savana Big Mamma' with chain link handle shoulder bag is so reminding us of Spring and Summer.  Sometimes, when it gets chilly and freezing cold, do you also wish that it's Summer already?

This bag is available at Barneys for $1,400.  It also has a smaller version:

Dolce & Gabbana chain strap iPhone case


I agree that our both hands should be free during parties... one for holding a cocktail drink or champagne and the other one for holding the hand of our date.  This Dolce & Gabbana chain strap iPhone case gives us that freedom in style.  It has a sequined purse to keep our cards and lipstick and a leather holder at the back to keep our iPhone.  This is also available in black and you can have both at Neiman Marcus for $545.

BCBG Max Azria mirror clutch

I am thinking this mirror clutch by BCBGMAXAZRIA would be a great gift for my fashionable sister.  It is perfect for her night out with her equally fashionable posse.  But, I am also thinking this would be great for my parties as well.  Oh, I am having second thoughts.  Should I give this to my sister or keep it for myself?

This is available at Last Call by Neiman Marcus for $64.

Tod's 'D-Bag' yellow satchel


I believe one of the reasons why Tod's remains one of the most trusted leather goods brands is because of their classic styles.  This Tod's 'D-Bag' satchel in bright yellow color is so simple... it is just the color that makes this more fun and current.  It has a no fuss style that will definitely keep you chic and classy for many years and seasons to come.

This bag is available at My Theresa for $1,518.

Thomas Wylde leather chain shoulder bag

This Thomas Wylde shoulder bag is white as snow.  What I like about this is the chain strap that you can use as an alternative to the leather straps.  It is made of crocodile embossed napa leather, has a top zip closure, and printed fabric lining.  You can have this at The Outnet for $654 previously $2,180.

Kate Spade 'Book of the Month' clutches for a nerdy chic appeal



At first I thought these were real books and then I realized I was in Kate Spade's website so I had to take a second look.  Well, these are really clutches.  I think they are cute.  In fact, Natalie Portman was seen toting a book clutch (no idea if it is a Kate Spade) during the premiere of the Black Swan.

I think these 'Book of the Month' clutches by Kate Spade are a great accessory if you are feeling nerdy and chic at the same time.  Be sure you have read the real books, though.  These are $325 a piece.
