Purse Trend: Peacock Handbags

May 30th, 2012 | Purse Trends

I’m not sure why exactly I’ve always been drawn to the peacock pattern but I think lots of other people feel the same way. Peacock is a trend that has come and gone over the years and recently, I’ve noticed lots of beautiful handbags sporting the peacock pattern. Here are some lovely peacock purses that have caught my eye. Click on any photo for more info.

How to Rock Neon Handbags on a Budget

February 20th, 2012 | Cute Purses Under $50

Looks like the trend of bright  pinks, yellows, greens and oranges is continuing through spring and summer and neon handbags are a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit without having to rework your whole wardrobe. If you’d like to give neon a try but don’t want to spend a bunch, Target has some great options. My favorite thing about these neon purses is that they are covered in cotton material instead of cheap-looking, fake leather PVC. You can get the Pink or Orange Xhilaration Pearl Top Handle Tote from Target or $19.99 and at that price, I might have to get one for myself.

Purse Trend: Reversible Totes

November 7th, 2011 | Purse Trends

Recently I keep coming across bags called “Reversible Totes.” I understand the concept here is that you have two options in one bag. One day you have the black outside and the next day you go crazy and have the red. Although options are a nice selling point, it seems the more realistic possibility is that you pick the one you like on the outside and that’s how you use it.  The reversible tote also brings up some questions: how do you work out the pockets and how the hell are you supposed to find your keys when digging around in shearling? So I ask, is there anyone out there that actually reverses their reversible tote?

Are the 70′s back?

September 16th, 2011 | Purse Trends

If these designs from Miu Miu and Chloe are any indication, the answer is yes. We’ve relived the 80′s and are now going back to the brown-saturated 70′s. Sigh.
