On Trend – Clutches

Just what is a “Clutch”?

From Wikipedia :
Clutch: a handbag without handles with detachable chain strap, rectangular in shape, often an evening bag but used during the day as well

Clutches are a great day-to-night fashion accessory.  Detach the wrist strap for evening and make sure your manicure is tasteful for a sleek classy look.

Handbags For Spring

I just ordered a lovely pink bag for Spring from Shein (see my set below).  They have some really cute trendy bags at discount prices.

This is my first handbag purchase from Shein so I’m anxious to see it and “road test” it.  It has to be able to hold a big wallet, cell phone and cover, large headphones, a drink bottle, among other items.  Just the normal items you need to get you through the work day 😉

Brenda MacLeod: Glamour of the Bag

Today I’m showcasing the amazing handbag designer Brenda MacLeod

“Brenda Macleod is a luxury women accessories brand. The brand was created to provide good quality, ethical and stylish handbags made with great attention to detail for the modern and confident woman who loves functionality, quality and minimal styles.

Designed with passion in the inspirational Highlands of Scotland and handmade with love in Florence, Italy, every handbag is a fusion of quality, style and impeccable craftsmanship.

We select the finest leathers for our production, focusing on luxurious natural leathers. Natural leather is tanned using only natural vegetable dyes, there are no chemicals involved in the tanning process, no buffing and no artificial finish. This means that every piece of our leather is allowed to retain its individual and unique patina, and being such a natural product will age beautifully with deeper colour tones.”  Read More…

These are extremely well-made, timelessly classic, and look incredibly sturdy.  Prices range from £160.00 ($225.99) to £655.00 ($910.00) so while not a budget price, they look well worth the investment.

Cropped Flares

Can you pull off the trending cropped flares?

I have to admit that I don’t quite have the figure for this look – being on the curvy side and of limited stature, this look just doesn’t do me justice. That is not to say that they don’t flatter some figure types.  Make sure to “own” this look – make it a deliberate statement and pair them with just the right heel.

Are You Ready for Fall?

Fall is upon us and those sweaters and boots are taking center stage

Not just sweaters and boots but handbags are a big statement this time of year – we need a roomy bag to hold our gloves and scarves.  Autumn is also a great time of year for weddings – who could ask for a more beautiful backdrop than autumn leaves?

Let’s look at some new arrivals and see what the designers are showcasing in fashion and gifts this season

Zebra Print: Always in Style

People are drawn to zebra print, perhaps because we are always looking for patterns. Scientists have many theories regarding why zebras have stripes:

PUBLISHED January 15, 2015
Zebras in warmer climates sport more stripes, perhaps to keep them cool or healthy.
