As much as I love the Kindle and iPad, there is something to be said for a good old fashion book. I actually miss bending down page corners before I put my book down. And what will happen to book covers with the digital age? Book covers are great works of art and design that can lure us into reading captivating stories and enchanting tales. Luckily, some classic book covers continue to live on as super chic handbags.

Cool kids read the classics and chic women carry them as handbags. Every wonderful Olympia Le-Tan embroidered canvas book clutch, has a brass structure and Liberty print lining. There is a beautiful library of numbered, limited-edition book bags to choose from. Whether you prefer Emily Dickenson or Franz Kafka these literary accessories will certainly be a unique addition to your wardrobe and will look equally cool on your coffee table.

Have you ever bought yourself a Valentine’s Day present? I often like to use these Hallmark holidays as an excuse to splurge on a little treat for myself. If you want to go all out this year – go big (really big!) and get that Birkin bag you have always dreamed of.

They have five gorgeous Birkins left in an array of colors and sizes. Heritage Auctions is the leading and trusted source for vintage and pre-owned handbags and accessories in the luxury market.

Great Messenger Bags for Women

bottega veneta NERO INTRECCIATO LIGHT CALF CROSS BODY MESSENGER bag
Last night I added lots of great messenger bags to the ‘Cute Work Bags for Women‘ section of the site. When I am running out the door in the morning to get to work I have my son, his lunch box, my handbag, a Diet Coke, my car keys, a jacket, bills to mail and so many other things to juggle. It is mornings like these when I like having a messenger bag for work so I can swing my laptop right over my shoulder and have my hands free for more important things, like holding my son’s hand. Go ahead and treat yourself to a new work bag or tote to start off the New Year (like this gorgeous one from Bottega Veneta).

Watch out everyone, here is a new tote bag in town…and they couldn’t be cuter! Jonathan Adler has launched a collection of super fabulous tote bags that are fun, colorful, super chic and practical too.

I have told many people that the Jonathan Adler store in San Francisco (on Fillmore Street) is one of the happiest places on earth for me. I walk in the door and I can’t help but smile. The colors and prints and quirky designs just make me happy – plain and simple. These wonderful tote bags are having the exact same effect on me.  They are made from coated canvas with leather trim and come with a handy little pocket inside for your car keys so they don’t get buried at the bottom. The perfect mix of modern, funky and traditional classic design. Love them!

 

Amanda Pearl Handbags

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

As much as I love all of my gorgeous tote bags, sometimes I get tired of lugging around everyone else’s stuff. Do I really need to carry  an iPad, a juice box, a 4T sweatshirt (just in case) and a dump truck everywhere I go? I just found these stunning bags from Amanda Pearl that are perfect for all the moms out there who need a night out.

Amanda Pearl’s Alessia clutch is perfect for a wedding, festive event or for anytime you just want to carry around a super pretty bag and feel fabulous. You can wear a simple dress and give your outfit the perfect splash of color with this beautiful clutch.

I am sure my son would love to use this chartreuse Samantha roll clutch to store his Lego mini figures in….I on the other hand would pop in my favorite Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil and head out for a night with the girls. It is available in a dozen of equally spectacular colors too. Wishing I could afford an entire rainbow…

Stephanie Johnson Travel Bags

I have found a little travel bag that I will never ever tuck away in a drawer. I received this glorious Stephanie Johnson cosmetic case as a gift (thank you Susan!!) about 2 months ago and I swear it has been on my counter or in my bag every day since. It is to pretty and festive to put away. It has been wonderful for vacations – I love the little compartments inside where I can organize my make-up and brushes. The bag has been equally useful to use on a daily basis to carry little items in my bag. I’ve used it for my iPhone, for glasses, you name it. I toss it into my Louis Vuitton Neverfull and I can always find it.

I love Stephanie Johnson’s website too because she makes it really easy to see all of your options and all of the products you have to choose from all on one screen. Above is a snapshot of some of her bags (there are many more too!) so you just pick a bag style you like. She really has designed a bag for everyone and every possible need.

And then you have all of these gorgeous fabrics to choose from. If you fall in love with a particular print you can quickly see all of the bags available in that print. It is so simple and intuitive. The hardest part is narrowing down your selection because the colors and fabrics are so pretty.

Go to her website and play and have fun with all of the colors. I am sure you will find a new cosmetic bag you’ll love. And while you are at it, you can pick up a cute evening pouch and an iPad case too. Happy Shopping!
