SHAY SLAYS WITH OUR KEIRA MINAUDIERE

When we design our handbags, especially our evening bags, we like to envision the stylish women who will soon be carrying them to their glamorous events. After wearing our black velvet KEIRA Minaudiere to the iHeart Radio MMVAs earlier this season, Shay Mitchell has given it yet another red carpet moment at the Outfest Legacy Awards, pairing it with a statement-making gold suit by Kayat. Swoon! Shay has clearly taken a liking to our KEIRA bag, and with its gorgeous woven velvet, it's easy to see why.

PINK IS IT

We are so obsessed with this new addition to our Fall collection!  The Athena Crossbody Canteen made of blush colored leather with scales lightly tipped in gold and a geo circle push clasp is hot on trend.   Pink in all sort of shades from dusty rose to fuchsia has appeared on the runway and in fashion magazines as the new trend color for Fall Winter 2016.   So if you've been looking for the perfect pink bag to freshen up your fall look, this is it.   Also available in Black, Grey, Ocean and Eggshell if you prefer the more classic colors.

EVENING ESSENTIALS

So you've got the dress, but what about the rest? Introducing our elegant PAULINA Silk Minaudiere, a stunning silk version of our popular snake print PAULINA Leather Minaudiere. This chic crossbody evening bag is made with crystals from SWAROVSKI so it shines bright through the night, and while it comes in more colors, I find it to be the perfect little black bag for special occasions from date night to holiday parties (and everything in between). Pink Pepper boutique paired it with elegant earrings and a bold red lip for a classic evening look. We approve!

CENTRE COURT CHIC

I just discovered the fanciest festival in the world and it's called Wimbledon. It felt so classy and luxurious, from the official timekeeper being Rolex to the simple fact that there is an official champagne of Wimbledon (anything with an official champagne has my seal of approval). And more importantly, it was so much fun! My boyfriend and I went for two days, first with a grounds pass to sit in at courts 3 through 18 and sip Pimms cups on Henman Hill. The classic day out at Wimbledon, complete with strawberries and cream. The second day we were lucky to score seats at Centre Court tickets for the day, for matches including Andy Murray's second round win (and he just went on to win the tournament - hurrah!). Our chic AURORA Minaudiere was the perfect bag for Wimbledon, especially for Centre Court - stylish and sophisticated but not too formal. Whether my other hand was holding a flat white at the morning match or a glass of champagne mid-afternoon, this versatile crossbody clutch was the perfect accessory. Game, set, match.

FESTIVAL FASHION

April was a whirlwind of handbags as we prepped for FW 2016 presentations and I never got a chance to post to the blog about Coachella! A few friends and I ventured to the desert, handbags in tow, for a fun and fashionable weekend of music. Some of my favorites were there - Grimes, Miike Snow, and Ellie Goulding - along with some amazing headline sets by LCD Soundsystem, Guns 'n Roses and Calvin Harris. So fun! But despite music being the main attraction, it was impossible not to notice the major festival fashion scene. The people watching was too good. While some hobbled around in platforms, the best examples managed to look cool AND comfortable - after all, that long dirt route from the road to the festival is BRUTAL, not to mention all the exploring once you're there. No one wants to be the limping friend with blisters. I was stoked to pair our gorgeous new Spring Summer 2016 GRACE Convertible Crossbody Bag with color (and pattern) coordinating Nikes for the first day. Desert hues complete with a fashion-forward leather tassel. Love this bag and the way it elevated the Nikes.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Birds are chirping, blossoms blooming... SPRING is here and so is our Spring Summer 2016 Collection! We are so thrilled to introduce the new line of handbags made from luxurious materials such as woven watersnake, printed leather, Swarovski crystals, quilted snakeskin, and even wood - yes, wood! I love the new AURORA Minaudiere and Tall Box Clutch and the smooth, architectural qualities of the wood. They're a perfect look for the warm weather ahead, plus they are SO versatile - dress one up as an elegant clutch for a June wedding or dress it down as a chic crossbody bag for a stylish Sunday picnic or brunch with friends.

IN THE BAG

Looking for a practical gift for yourself or a fashionable friend? Our multi-purpose leather Pouch Clutch is as functional as it is stylish. Use it to keep keys, cards, cash, and other smaller essentials safe inside your day bag (like our lovely new woven watersnake Mia Tote Bag), then carry it on its own as a clutch for cocktails after work. This chic, multi-purpose pouch is also a lifesaver for organizing while traveling - use it to hold passports and important travel documents inside your carry-on, then dress it up during your trip as a stylish leather clutch for evenings out, saving room in your luggage for other vacation must-haves (and maybe even a few exotic souvenirs!). Pick from eleven fashion-forward colors and patterns.
