Buy it: Rebecca Minkoff Delight bag for mark.

If you follow me on Twitter, perhaps you recently noticed me enthusiastically tweeting about a certain handbag designer and her exclusive new collaboration. That designer is Rebecca Minkoff, a Cheryl Shops favorite, and, actually, a designer of clothes, shoes, and so much more. She created an exclusive bag for mark., a division of Avon that is perhaps best known for fun, affordable makeup but is also a great source for equally fun and affordable jewelry and accessories. The two came together and produced this beauty of a handbag, the Delight, which, if you ask me, is a pretty accurate assessment. Big enough for day, the Delight has a bunch of pockets inside for your cell phone and other assorted trinkets; I can attest that your iPad will fit inside as well. The long chain strap allows you to wear it as a crossbody style, but you can also tuck the strap inside (or remove it via side buckles) and use it as an oversize clutch. What makes the bag really cool are all of the Minkoff-signature hardware details—the rocker-y pyramid studs on the outside, the buckles, and the aforementioned chain strap. But perhaps the best part is the price: At $60, it’s just a fraction of what one of Minkoff’s bags usually cost. (Yes, it’s pleather, but it’s good-quality pleather.) My only quibble: I wish she had designed more bags for mark., because I would have bought them all! The bag is available now, while supplies last, at, or from your local Avon representative.

Nina Ricci’s Ruffle Bag is Ever-So Bold!

Now that bright colors are so big, it’s time to make the investment in Nina Ricci’s latest silk bag! (looks very Lanvinish to me…which is a good thing!) The unique design and great attention to detail make this bag a fashion favorite with it’s tiered silk layers, bright Raspberry color and funky design.  The bag features a silver tone lock closure with a chain shoulder strap. It’s both fun and sophisticated. It works great paired with this season’s bold colors, prints or an all white outfit. For a trendy look pair  Ricci’s Tiered Ruffle Evening Bag with a bright pink top and bright yellow (Vince’s Crop Skinny Ankle) or floral jeans. This bag is perfect for lunching with “the girls” or for an evening dinner party. Overall, this bag is simply stunning and stylish.Nina Ricci’s everyday bags (Liane Top Handle Bag in Python) are amazing this season and definitely worth taking a look at when shopping this evening bag!

You deserve it!

Bag Obsession: Stella McCartney Falabella Shoulder Bag

  • posted January 18th, 2012
  • Fashion

You’d have to have been asleep this whole past year in order to ignore the fashion and accessories world’s obsession with python print. And while the trend has definitely reached its peak this past fall, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon! After all, when it comes to handbags, it’s hard to go wrong with a print comprised of neutral tones so it goes with nearly anything, yet has undeniably sexy texture and makes a much stronger statement than your average solid leather bag. This season, however, Stella McCartney is edging the look up even further with chain hardware details and hot pink trim for a look that’s part sweet, part sassy. The Falabella Shoulder Bag is the perfect size for touting all our daily must-haves, while the print’s glossy finish and fun, expected contrast whipstitching adds plenty of interest that’s bound to beat all your other everyday shoulder bags in the fierce department! Sure, at $1,435 it’s definitely more of an investment piece than a spur-of-the-moment splurge, but its hard to resist even with the hefty price tag!

Poppy Handbags For a Burst of Bright Color!

As much as I love browsing the handbag department of any store — perusing, picking them up, trying them on and sauntering in front of the store mirrors —  it’s rare that I’ll actually buy a purse (crazy, I know)! It’s not that I’m thrifty (ha!), it’s just that unless I’m on a spree at bargain-friendly accessories giant H&M, bags are a big investment purchase… and I’m sort of a handbag commitment-phobe! As a result, I normally stick to versatile, neutral-colored bags I can use for basically anything and everything, and while my collection is undoubtedly practical, it can be a bit of a snooze-fest. That’s why I’m attempting to branch out with this season’s biggest color trend, poppy! It’s bright and it’s festive, but at the same time, it isn’t too loud! Think of it as the new neutral — sure, it doesn’t go with everything, but it’s easy to coordinate with and pops with a pretty vibrance against a more muted wardrobe! More sophisticated than pink, more flattering than orange, and significantly more autumn-friendly than hot coral, a poppy-hued bag will be your favorite new accessory for transitioning from summer into fall!
