2011 has started off with a bang for me! How about you? We are five days into this new year and I’m wondering if you’ve stuck to any of your resolutions. Is saving money one of them? I’m with you on that one; that’s why this year will be all about shopping on a budget. I started that resolution a little early as I planned my New Year’s Eve trip to San Francisco.

After Saturday night’s Snowball event, I realized I don’t have a proper evening bag. With the holidays here, I need something that will be easy to carry, big enough for my cell phone, I.D., money, my compact, and my lip stick. I also want something that is unique. That brings us to this post. I love “unique” items, although I never have the guts to pull anything like it off. As I was searching today, I found a few “unique” evening bags that I’d love to share with you. Honest opinions please…would you carry any of these to your next holiday party?
You know the holidays are right around the corner when all things velvet roll out. From dresses to accessories, it’s super luxe and often comes in basic colors like black and red.

These clutches below could add some pizazz to your holiday look. That mustard Juicy Couture Gifting Bow Capsule Clutch is mine! So, are you a fan of velvet?

What about you? Are you craving a leopard print tote?
Known for chic and sleek styles, American Sportswear designer Calvin Klein never disappoints. In fact, my first pair of designer plus size jeans were by Calvin Klein and believe me when I say I wore them out! I loved them and of course they were on sale. What’s your experience with Calvin Klein pieces been like?
I think I’m going on a designer binge after checking out Milan Fashion Week. It’s all I can think about and sometimes that’s not such a good thing for a girl like me on a budget. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to look and save money for a much needed pair of designer sunglasses. I’m just sayin’! I’m still looking for the perfect pair.
While I’m at it, let’s take a look at a
Sometimes, this bargainista likes to buy designer items because of their quality. Ok, this is getting dangerous. I’m outta here!
Time flies in the world of fashion, it is now Milan Fashion Week and the Italians are rocking it!! Here are a few of the handbags from Gucci’s Spring 2011 collection. The braiding is exquisitely glamourous. I wouldn’t expect anything else from one of the world’s best luxury designers.

This past weekend was kind of strange. I went shopping and I didn’t buy myself a thing. Yes…you read that right. I didn’t buy myself anything. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little disappointed in myself. Maybe, it’s the heat. It’s making me delirious. Excuse me a moment. I’m going to try and figure out what’s wrong with me. Take a lookie at these Juicy Couture bags, while I sort things out.
