Coveted item of the day

November 7, 2007

Ahh, Balenciaga…

As alluded to previously, I diamond-heart.jpg Balenciaga bags. I can’t quite remember when this love affair started, but it was first consummated in about 2003 with this beauty: img_0752.jpg

Although there is the occasional item of clothing that leaves me drooling,fall 07 shoes there are quite a few that give me pause… Though if you can get away with this C3PO look, more power to you. It’s also hard to imagine on which occasion these shoes would come in handy, unless you were like, I don’t know, Rainbow Brite’s crunchy-fashionista cousin.

At any rate, my love for their yummy bags has not diminished, therefore, here are a few of the current ones that I’ve been dreaming of…

B white hoboTotally digging the hobo with the big hardware. I’d love it in black, or maybe purple…

Also love the round bag in Pine from Fall 2007.

Love the shape, love the color, love the hardware!

B blue GGH

This color is so rich and it would go with everything I own, but not as wild about the style (and as we know I already have a blue one, can”t be too crazy now, can I?!)

And then, ehem, there’s my new baby:

Yeah, I did it and I couldn’t be happier. It holds everything – computer, book, and all the myriad crap that I accumulate and lug around all over the city – and I wonder why I have neck and back problems!

Shine On

October 7, 2007

mcqueen-elvie.jpgI am so into this bag! It’s very Darth Vader-S&M don’t you think? Oooh, that actually sounds kinda creepy and geeky, but you get the idea. Anyway, it’s called the Elvie, it’s the handiwork of the fabulous Alexander McQueen. I love the structure and the hardware, it would so make my regular jeans and t-shirt kick ass!

This time of year really makes me want to buy a new bag (oh, who am I kidding I always want a new bag). I don’t often think ofYSL Tribute, quilted croc myself as a patent girl, but for some reason I seem to be digging the shiny this year. It just feels so crisp and polished, chic and sophisticated. I’m also in love with this YSL Tribute bag: gorgeous clean lines and the croc quilting is divine.

Lastly I’ll toss out the requisite MJ bag, this one’s the Christina. I’ve loved Marc Jacobs for ages, sometimes he hits it out of the park, other times it’s hard to imagine what was going on in that head of mj-christina.jpghis (oh, I guess we all know that by now). At any rate, I like the more refined quilting he’s got going on these days, a modern homage to the classic Chanel.

Oh, so many bags, so little money…and don’t even get me started on the Balenciagas, drool!!!
