“IT BAG” of the moment

It looks like the Speedy craze is finally coming to an end, or at least hibernating again, while a new bag has emerged, the “Rocco Duffle” by the very talented Alexander Wang. I may be somewhat bias because of my LOVE for Alexander Wang, but this top handle duffle tote is conservative with its simple architecture and classic, pebbled leather, but also exudes badass confidence as soon as you turn it over.
Its’ pale gold studded hardware underneath, add the perfect pop of colour and uniqueness.

Celebrities everywhere have been caught carrying this bag and you can carry it too for just $1025.00 HERE! but if your’e poor like me then you’re in luck because i’ve discovered a perfect alternative for you budget queens. The “Alexa Studded Calfskin Leather Bag” you can find at http://www.baginc.com for a more modest price of $149.00. Both bags are genuine leather and virtually impossible to tell apart.

Can you tell which ones which???

Birkin on a Budget

Ever since seeing that episode of Sex in the City as a little girl, where Samantha uses the name of Lucy Liu to bump herself up on the wait list at Hermes, I became obsessed. At that very moment I was exposed to the Birkin, a pivotal moment in every fashionistas life, that in some way changes the way you ever look at a handbag ever again. The holy grail of all purses, the ultimate status symbol, the pure manifestation of luxury and unequivocal trump card at any shi-shi cocktail party, The Birkin.

We all dream of one day owning one, whether you even like its aesthetic or not, if you can afford a $20,000 purse you’ve risen to the top of the fashion food chain (and ultimate frivolity). But if you’re merely a simple commoner like I, you are not in the financial position to snort away your life savings at Hermes. SO I have been on the search for the handbag that combines the divine architecture and iconic hardware of the Birkin at an affordable price. Here are a few of the frontliners i have found.

What are your thoughts? Have you seen better, or better yet cheaper?
