I am dying to freshen up my handbag assortment at the moment… taking inspiration from some of these amazing clutches that totally transform an outfit. I am also warming up to the idea of using a bright over-sized purse during the day (instead of lugging a huge bag around)! Thoughts?
Currently lusting… I was over it for a minute, but it seems to be a great seasonless and classic bag that I think will stick for a while. I like it in a pop color better than in classic blag, but the black is spotted much more often. What do you think?
Giuseppe Zanotti just released their Fall 12 collection, and it may be their best yet. Featuring metal details, spikes studs and a generous assortment of Gaga-inspired maxi-wedges, the collection has enough to make any shoe addict fall in love.

I am always excited to check out new brands that aren’t always easily available to everyone here in the states, and a few years back I discovered River Island while I was shopping for a fun dress to wear to a wedding (they are currently available on Asos.com).
I was really excited today when Rihanna announced that she will be collaborating with the brand on a capsule collection for SS13. Her amazing style plus their fashion forward and trend-driven pieces are about to push my wardrobe into overload!
A few of my favorite pieces from the River Island Pre-Fall collection, available now:
embellished tunic dress. £70.00
black tasseled bucket bag, £40.00
embellished collar statement necklace, £28.00
peplum waist detail dress, £40.00

Why is this bag so perfect, and under $1000?
This 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag caught my eye on a recent fashion blog binge, and I can’t believe I missed it when it was first released last year. I love the versatility of the top handle and the strap, because sometimes it just feels so glam to carry a great bag over your arm, not hidden underneath.
There are three colors of the Pashli currently in stock on 3.1 Phillip Lim- black, ink and jade. I think this is the perfect bag to keep in black and wear for seasons.

I stumbled upon another great jewerly designer on charmandchain.com and had to share- shourouk. The designer hails from Pairs, and worked with Chloé, Galliano, and Roberto Cavalli. I cannot wait to watch her work and see what she comes up with next – if it is anything like these beauties, she will be a household name before long.

Alexander McQueen can do no wrong… joining every other designer who has a signature bracelet, this one is more of an original. For the fashionista who feels like Hermes is a little too preppy, these are a wonderful alternative.
I found this display on elyse walkers blog and felt like a kid in a candy store – I want them all!

Soft leather, beautiful hardware, bright colors to get you ready for your Spring wardrobe… sounds delicious! Crushing on the Miu Miu Cloquet shoulder bag available in a medium (below) and a slightly larger size is easy to do!
Quilted with a soft chevron texture, featuring a woven top-handle and steel hardware, this is a new version in their Cloquet bags, which are beginning to come a seasoned classic.

Get ready to want one in each color (or at least want to consume a massive amount of jelly bellys after checking out all of these beautiful colors!)
These are all via barneys.com, I was at the Grove at Nordstrom today and they had them all out on a huge display at the front of the handbag department… even more beautiful in person!
PS1s always sell out right away… better think fast and decide on a color!
