Handbag Delight

Handbag Delight: Dareen Hakim

When I first saw Dareen Hakim’s handbags at MAGIC LV, I knew there was something special about them. The shapes and colors instantly caught my eye. Check out the new collections below, which are no exception. “Sumptuous leathers, arabesque calligraphy, dramatic hues – all form the basis of style behind each Dareen Hakim creation.

Handbag Delight: Mustard

Mustard is the new yellow…for now. Until lemon comes in and sweeps us off our feet this summer. If you would’ve tried to get to wear this color as a teenager I would’ve responded with a big fat NO! I was not adventurous at all. I do know that this color is catching my eye right now. It’s the right amount of pop for any outfit. It’s vibrant without being overwhelming. Does that make sense? LOL…whatever. I like it. How about you? Are you loving mustard?

Handbag Delight: Stripes

Looking at handbags online is not easy. I thought it would be, because it’s not like looking at them in a store. I was wrong…I want them all. And as you can see, I’m kind of in a stripe mood right now.  I’ve seen people wearing them like crazy. But, I’d like to be a twist on it and go with a striped clutch or handbag. What do you think? Are stripes for you? 1. Sydney Love 2. Charlotte Russe 3. Muze 4. Forever 21 5. Sonia Rykiel 6. TopShop 7. Old Navy 8. Rebecca Minkoff 9. MANGO 10. Pour La Victoire 11.…

10 Bags to Brighten Your Day!

Are you having a down in the dumps kind of day? Stop it! It’s only Thursday.That means you only have one more day until the weekend. Woohoo! I found a few bags that I thought could possibly “brighten” your day and push through to tomorrow. And since I’m working on being more adventurous fashionably, these bags are definitely knocking on the door. I always stick to black bags. Hopefully these will serve as inspiration. Besides, there’s nothing like adding a little color to your day! FYI…LOVE this first bag, it’s by Donald J Pliner! Hot!

Handbag Delight: Rebecca Minkoff

There’s nothing I love more than Rebecca Minkoff Handbags! I adorrrrre! This California native started with apparel in 2001 and designed her first handbag in 2005. It’s been “Handbag Delight” ever since. Today, her collection consists of apparel, handbags, and accessories. I really need to get my butt to one of her sample sales here in L.A. My friend Ivory keeps on telling me to go. OK Ivory, I promise to go to the next one with you!  Geez, you and your shopping pressure! LOL Anywho…back to the bags. Like I was saying…I love them and I’d gladly take one…

The Updated Fanny Pack

Inspired by an obviously cool guy in line at Disney World, I think fanny packs are way underrated. Bear with me for a second… I mean…if you love having pockets, then you should love having everything you need at arms reach, right at the waist, and without having to add that uneeded stress to your shoulders. Right? Are you agreeing with me yet? But…the term fanny packs is soooooo 1980’s. How about we just call them what they’re referred to now…”belt bags.” I’ve seen a few people wear them, but it’s not really a full on trend..yet? I really like this…

Handbags go Tribal

You can call it a tribal, aztec, or even southwestern print. It actually reminds me of a sarape. That’s a brightly colored mexican blanket or shawl, by the way. I remember having a blanket like this as a teenager, but that was in my anti-bright color days. So, it was  taupe, black, and white. Whenever I look at these, I feel like go to Tijuana and buying a few of those blankets. LOL. Ove the past two days of shopping, I’ve seen the print every where. Especially, in the handbag world. I even bought myself one today at Old Navy.…
