LPLP by Linea Pelle at Target

One of my favorite handbag designers Linea Pelle has just debuted ‘LPLP by Linea Pelle’ at Target. Well, there goes my Target boycott (I was boycotting them because of their sad plus size department).Available in stores and Target.com, the line “introduces a new demographic to the Southern California “casual chic” lifestyle sensibility embodied by the brand, which currently celebrates its 25th anniversary.”Priced at $9.99-$34.99, the line includes handbags, belts, wallets and other small leather goods as well as some jewelry items. Looks like I have to pay my local Target a visit. Hopefully, they’ve fixed their plus size department.

Handbag Delight: Big Buddha

JCARTER $100Handbags and I…we go way back. The love affair started at an early age and continues to this day. Don’t even get me started about my days working at Nordstrom and my employee discount!So, I know a beautiful bag when I see one. And when I was flipping through the new issue of Redbook, I saw a bag that caught my eye (#5 below).When I found out it was a Big Buddha design, I wasn’t surprised. Their bags stand out to me, not just because of their design and craftsmanship, but because they are animal friendly and 100% vegan.I love…

Topshop’s Got it Handled

Move over handbags, the satchel with the handle is making it’s mark as one of my favorite bags of the season! I love all handbags and I don’t discriminate, but this style is definitely on my to-buy list. I found a great selection over at Topshop. It doesn’t hurt that most of them can be worn as crossbody bags which is a bonus in my book. Especially, since I need my hands free for shopping. The Coral Leather Lock Handle Bag is divine, but for $110, I might need to find a cheaper alternate. Unless I can get my hands…

Bag on a Budget?

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. I found this amazing handbag over at Nordstrom for $28! I’m amazed by it’s quality and style! If you’re searching for a “Bag on a Budget,” take…
