My New Obsession


I want to invest in my first designer handbag but I keep finding more and more candidates (or 'dream' candidates more accurately). Heres what I have been looking at lately. I really love Miu Miu handbags..they seem very universal and luxe, but I think the bag is too small for the amount of money it costs. I need a little more space than that. The Alex Wang is truly kick ass and I think I would love it, but $725!?!?! Finally these Rebecca Minkoff Morning After bags are gorgeous leather caryalls. They are certainly practical for day wear, but not useful during a night out on the town. I would however be able to carry my necessities, a sketchbook and my camera...maybe even a change of clothes :)

rebecca minkoff- approx. $595

alexander wang- approx. $725

miu miu- approx $420


Betsey Johnson Spring 04

While casually rifling through this season's new looks for Fall I figured it wouldn't hurt to delve into the records of Spring runway shows past. I was particularly drawn to this Betsey Johnson collection and it's theme of 'babydolls come to life and ready to par-tay.' Plus I'm a sucker for ruffle socks, sparkles and chain jewelry :)
