This would be the best "White" Christmas ever...

Drooling over this new Champagne colored Alexander Wang with gold die for!

A babe and her bag...

My good friend Jessie, of Style & Pepper came into town this week, and we got together for a brief (hot, like 100 degrees hot) second. We cooled off with some Fro-Yo with the kids. It was so good to see her! I miss her smile and laugh; she literally brightens up a room.

Jessie and the kiddos

I about died when she told me the bag she was carrying was from Ann Taylor! I would have thought it was Tods or something...

give me perforated leather any day of the week! And, it's on sale for $119!

it also comes in this amazing tote version...

I also spotted this carry-all on their website. It's the perfect year-round bag

kudos to Ann Taylor for stepping up their style, I need to check them out more often!

You are perfect.

If you know me, you know I have a love affair with handbags. I saw this new Chloe bag in the most recent Nordstrom catalog and my heart skipped a beat. I am just in love with the Classic Navy with the camel strap...and guess what, it also comes in Camel with a navy strap! Ahhhhhh, complete perfection!

I was so giddy that sent my husband a "hint" email entitled: "push prize/anniversary/mother's day/35th birthday gift?" I am not going to even tell you his response. He wasn't so keen on the $2300 price tag. I have to agree, it's pretty over the top. I mean, you can get a Goyard hand painted with your monogram for that price! But something about this classic bag has me smitten. What do you think? Worth the price tag or is it just way overpriced?

Bag it

Some people are shoe-aholics, I personally am addicted to bags. Whether you gain or lose 5 pounds, a handbag will always fit; and I LOVE that! Handbags, if bought wisely will also never go out of style. Here is my eternal "wish list"...

A Monogrammed Goyard Tote

Gucci Boston Bag

Chloe Marcie Bag

And when I get a bit older, I think a classic Chanel would be a wonderful investment

what bag are you coveting these days?

Boring Black? I think not!

I had a few people asking me for suggestions for a great black handbag that can be used from one season to the next without looking outdated. I think that a good black handbag is without a doubt one of the best investments you can make. If you buy something classic enough, it will never go out of style and you will love it year after year.

I always say choose a silhouette that is timeless, but don't be afraid of a little detail. It's the small details that make the bag. Just be wary of something with big tassels, fringe or large hardware...the more simple the design, the better. Here are just a few of my suggestions for investment worthy black bags...

This one is by Alexander Wang. Love the bowler shape and the small handles and the details are simple, but fantastic.

This Botkier has a little bit more going on than I typically like but I do still think it's classic enough. It's also nice to have the long strap for a cross-body option

The Tallis tote by Tory Burch is a fabulous carryall.  It has extremely soft leather and simple styling that keeps it very classic. $525

If I had to choose one of all these, it would have to be the Edye Satchel by Tory Burch $575. I LOVE this bag. It definitely reminds me of a Birkin by Hermes...similar shape and handle. This would be a bag you could love for years.

This would be the best work bag. It's 12" high and 15"long which makes it big enough to carry anything. It's also well priced at $375. By Gryson 

I own this Foley + Corinna and it has been a fantastic bag. I got the largest size and I am glad I did. It holds EVERYTHING. It is also incredibly durable $485

The Natasha Bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs is super classic, without many bells and whistles. I like that the strap is long enough to carry over your shoulder and the big gold buckles at the front give it a nice touch. $398

and if you want to REALLY splurge? The Marcie Calfskin small satchel by Chloe is GORG! I adore the fold over flap and the short handles as well as the long strap. This would be perfect back to your favorite jeans or dressed up for work.

Not just boring basics

My cousin emailed me the other day to tell me about all the cute kids stuff she just got at American Apparel. Not only have they expanded their kids line, but they have also branched out into carrying vintage (online) and their basics are not-so-basic anymore. After looking online, I think I need to go and check them out in person....

seriously, how cute is this stuff????

and THEN, I just saw on The Glamourai, this AMAZING oversize clutch. Something I have been coveting for years. And you won't believe it, it's only $45.

Party Pouchette

I wish I had one of these for New Year's Eve, don't you? Love the colors and it fits perfectly on your wrist! And at only $60, you don't even have to justify it! By Nelle handbags

It's in the bag (and all under $200)

I could online shop handbags all day long. There are soooooo many options. If a girl had all the money in the world, how would she choose? Or maybe she wouldn't, maybe she would just buy them all!

while "browsing" online I found some REALLY cute options, and at surprisingly decent prices!


I have a few Deux Lux bags and they are awesome! SUPER affordable, and they always have tons of style. How great is this studded drawstring bag? $124 on Deux Lux

The King Hobo by Deux Lux is AH-MA-ZING. And yes, only $128, it also comes in 6 colors.

This Halston Heritage bag would go the extra mile. I feel like it would be worth the investment, because you could use it forever. It is a fold over, which gives you a little more space for your belongings. $195 on Shopbop

This is the Mercer Clutch by Deux Lux. Isn't she adorable? What's even more adorable is the price, $64!!! Available in 6 colors.

This bag is CALLING my name for spring! Love the colors and the tiny little handle, it also has a removeable long strap to carry cross-body as well! $195 by 12th St. By Cynthia Vincent

What bags are you lusting for this season?

Dog and Pony Show

Rebecca Ray Designs may be inspired by the sporting life, but the great thing is, you don't need a Dog OR a Horse to enjoy them. If you are like me and love a touch of Equestrian (think Ralph Lauren meets Hermes) then you will gush over Rebecca Ray Designs bags and accessories like I did. A little side note, the bags are also made by women in the Amish Community. The women actually sew them on traditional Treadle sewing machines. Is that not incredible? Rebecca Ray gives back part of their profits to the Ohio Crippled Children's fund, which services the Amish Community.
I stumbled upon them at Trapp & Co. here in Kansas City and I was immediately smitten. All of the bags are made of rich colored canvas and trimmed in leather. Each has their own special detail to make them unique. Like the "Sally", a Satchel style bag with saddle leather details and equestrian grade brass hardware. Each bag also allows you to choose the "artwork" which will be placed in the bench-made glass bridle rosette. I have a Jack Russell, which is cute would that be?

Or the Sadie is pretty fantastic too...

love the Cross Body option and longer length $425

and the Caryall is just a great option for toting everything around or for travel

The Mary-Anne bag can be customized with a Horse, Dog or Cow image $185

and this bag was very preppy, but I do love the style of the bag, it's absolutely timeless. This is the Molly and she is $325

what do you think? Do any of you own a Rebecca Ray design?

It's in the bag...

I have seen a few very stylish ladies sporting this bag around Kansas City. It's simple and chic, and a fabulous cary-all. It's canvas with leather trim and the monogram is embossed in metallic gold block letters. I don't think the pictures do it justice, it looks much better in person. Now to decide, what color?!!!!

I think this color leather is my fave!

and you know what would fit perfectly into this bag? The La Plates monogram wallet (as seen in Lonny!)

Top of my list...

I believe I posted about the Goyard bag of my dreams very early on in my blogging, but seeing it on Gwyneth just confirms what an AMAZING bag it really is. I love their bright colors, subtle pattern and of course the most sophisticated monogram you have ever seen. The only place I have ever seen them sold is at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC, but I believe you can also get them in Beverly Hills. Any readers out there own one of these beauties? If so, I am BEYOND jealous...

If I had a million dollars...

not a million really, but just about $1400 I would be snagging one of these FAB bags by Chloe

I mean, every mom needs a hands free cross body bag, right?!
