Vivienne Westwood 'Bam Bam' handbag

Aside from borrowing Bam Bam of the Flintstones character's cute name, it actually looks like Vivienne Westwood was inspired by the era.  This Bam Bam handbag looks hard and tough and I like it.  Do you like it, too?  This sells for $958 at Forward by Revolve.

Les Tropeziennes mod clutch with chain link strap

Cute isn't it?  The square details in front reminds me of Boggle dice and makeup palette.  Each square detail is bordered with gold plated metal.  It is roomy enough to stoke your date essentials.  The chain link strap can be detached to make it to a full clutch.  This Les Tropeziennes clutch can be yours for $274.31.  This is also available in silver, gunmetal, gold, purple and ivory.

Prezzo NY scenes box satchels

Love New York?  Profess your love for the city through these Prezzo NY scenes box satchels.  Personally, I'd rather keep these in my living room as accent and bring this if I travel to another country.  These actually reminds me of my lunch box when I was a kid.  You can have these at Endless for only $46. 

The inside can be filled with your makeup and toiletries or trinkets from your travel.

Bottega Veneta insect clutch

Who would've thought the the creepy crawlers would be fashionable?  What's more surprising is that luxury brands are profiting from bugs.  Although I don't like insects crawling anywhere, I think this box clutch by Bottega and Veneta with green and yellow scarabs is adorable.  The knotted clasp isn't not bad either.  This is available at Net-A-Porter for a whopping $8,000.  Those bugs are really expensive. Argh!

Halston 'Henry' python clutch

A guy friend of mine asked me one time what pleasure do women get from buying expensive bags.  I said, the same pleasure men get from buying their expensive toys.  I actually don't buy things, particularly bags, that costs more than what I earn in a month.  If ever I buy myself something that is really expensive, it is something that I can use to help me with my freelancing activities--laptops or cellphones.  

Going back to bags,  I think what made my friend ask me the question is that his friend's wife bought a bag that is, well, too expensive... more expensive than a laptop.

See that clutch?  That's Halton's 'Henry python clutch that is as expensive as the wife's bag.  It sells for $2,497.50 previously $4,995.

Kate Spade 'All Typed Up Clyde' tote

This is kind of unusual for Kate Spade but it is fun.  Although, I am not seeing myself toting this in the office, I can still bring this when I am out with my son.  I can teach him numbers and letters with this.  You can have this 'All Typed Up Clyde' tote at the label's website for $495.

Marc Jacobs 'Cheeky Edie' hobo

This 'Cheeky Edie' hobo by Marc Jacobs is actually double purpose... it can be a pillow... not, really.  It is just I who thought of it.  It looks so soft, fluffy and cushy and looking at it makes me sleepy.  I wish the strap was all leather.  You can have this for $598.

Kate Spade 'Tarrytown' shoulder bag

Are you a career woman?  This Kate Spade 'Tarrytown' is the right bag for you to carry your laptop and office files.  It has compartments to organize your things--it even has a slot for pens and pencils.  You can have this for $475.

Best Quilted Bags

Do you like the ladylike appeal of quilted bags?  I do!  It all started when Chanel released their ubiquitous quilted bags with chain straps... since then, we became hooked.  Of course, we all can't afford to have a Chanel but we can still have quilted bags to satisfy our bag begging pleasures.  Here are some of the best quilted bags that are really affordable.

Hermes 'Camail' leather hobo

This Hermes 'Camail' leather hobo looks odd and unique in a nice way.  Instead of putting the strap on the sides, the strap is in the middle.  You can still carry it like normally placed strap, though.  Do you find it cute?  Normally this bag sells for $2,950, but if you will hurry, you can have this for a discounted price of $2,389.99.
