The Bag Everyone's Wearing

Friday, June 29th, 2007

The New It Bag

The new IT bag plastered with the slogan “I’M NOT A PLASTIC BAG” is flying off the shelves this month. Keira Knightley, Ivanka Trump and Petra Nemcova are all carrying around the replacement carrier bag like it’s their new best friend! It is made by Anya Hindmarch’s and costs just $15 – bargain. It is reusable therefore much more friendly to the environment.

Via Life and Style.


Dooney & Bourke Emma Bags

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Emma BagDooney & Bourke have just launched their new Emma Bags modelled by Emma Roberts – star of the Warner Brothers film ‘Nancy Drew’. The collection is part of their spring teen range aimed at teenage girls worldwide. The most noticeable feature of the bags is their sausage-like appearance (especially the brown shades) but apparently this is one of the must have styles of the season.

Medium Emma BagThe bags are made from soft leather and come in either small or medium. Colours available include brown, black, red, white, blue, orange, green, beige and Chamois and each one is decorated with a leather trim and brass accessories.

The bags aren’t cheap, the smaller one retailing at $210 and the medium $235, both are available on the Dooney & Bourke website.


Warehouse Evening Pencil Dress

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Warehouse Evening DressI have fallen in love with yet another evening dress; this one is from Warehouse and is currently on sale, reduced from £80 to £60. It is so elegant and feminine with beautiful fine embroidered floral detail on the top and stomach area. The dress is a pencil style so high shoes are a must. A wide scarf or shawl would look lovely draped over shoulders or upper arms.

Wedding receptions, special parties or a night at the theatre would be great venues for you to wear this gorgeous dress, available in stores or on the Warehouse website.


Tutu Topped Umbrella

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Tutu UmbrellaThis is one of the craziest umbrella’s I have ever seen but I think it’s fabulous. The tutu style was created by French designer Chantal Thomass, do you think inspiration came from underwear? Well yes, it certainly did. On each panel of the umbrella is a ladies leg wearing sexy platforms and tights, some also have ribbons and bows. The black lace layers represent a tutu skirt.

The product is available at Red Oasis for £149.


Ted Baker Albion Bag

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Ted Baker BagWe girls can never have too many bags, it is a necessity to have a style for every occasion, do you agree? This little clutch would make an ideal addition to any evening outfit or special occasion. It is made from 100% leather and has an oversize bow to make it really dressy. Imagine strutting out in a little black dress with stiletto sandals and a sparkly jacket and you could wear the black version with almost anything.

The bag known as the Albion is available in black or pink marshmallow and costs £50. It is currently available on the Ted Baker website in both colours. Love it!


ASOS LUXE Jewelled Sandals

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

goldshoes.jpgThese gorgeous gold shoes will make a fab addition to your shoe collection – they’re perfect for the summer (that’s if the summer ever comes!) and look really fancy for a posh do. The jewels up the central strap are a real eye-catcher and the thin gold straps linking the top part of the sandal to the bottom are elegant.

The sandals are also available in an orchid pink if you really want to brighten up a little black outfit, and the jewels are also pink, with a touch of blue for added effect. Personally I prefer the gold, but both are available from ASOS for £65.


Abstract Print Bikini

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

Abstract Print BikiniIs it me or did summer seem to come in May and then disappear again? I feel it’s rather unfair that my poor bikini’s have only seen the sun for a couple of days this year, I am praying for some more sunbathing weather over the next few months.

If you haven’t already bought a bikini this year there’s lots of choice around at the moment, I have just found this abstract print bikini at River Island while I was searching for an ascot dress!

It costs £24.99 and is so colourful it almost looks like Joseph’s dream coat! It is designed beautifully and is on the top of my wish list this summer.


River Island Summer Printed Dress

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

I am off to Royal Ascot this Friday and I have been looking for a dress that says classy but fun, I don’t want to wear a long flowing gown or a feathered hat, I want something a little funkier and a bit more stylish. I love this dress from River Island, it’s so this season and the belt gives it that little bit of extra detail. I think it’s worthy for a day at the races!

River Island Printed DressI also just realised how good this dress would look with the shoes I wrote about earlier, it would go with either colour! The dress can be bought on the River Island website for just £29.99, an absolute bargain if you ask me.


Black or White Vanesa Wedges?

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

I have just found these gorgeous Vanesa wedges on lovemyshoes.com and had to show them to you! They are very similar to the Lily Allen style wedges I wrote about last week but I personally prefer these ones. Lily Allen’s were £310 from Chanel and these are only $32.98 – what a bargain.

Vanesa WedgesI think I prefer the white pair; they are a little more summery and would go really well with a short printed dress and some leggings. Let me know which ones you prefer, the black or the white!


Coach Signature Stripe Collection

Monday, June 18th, 2007

Coach Signature Stripe ToteI have just been over to the Coach website and seen their new signature stripe collection. The style has been incorporated into many of their fashion items such as bags, wallets, cosmetic cases, iPod cases and more.

Coach Signature Stripe SatchelThe fabric comes in different colours – brown or blue being the most dominant and the signature stripe is the special addition to each item.

Coach Signature Stripe DemiThey have all different bag shapes including totes, shoulder bags, clutches, satchels, swingpacks, shoulder totes and small hobo’s. If you like the style and colour of the fabric then it is likely they will have a style for you. The brown tote with white stripe is my favourite design out of their bag collection. It costs $268 and is also available in a blue shade.

Coach Signature Stripe Travel ToteThe blue satchel costs $358, the brown demi with turquoise stripe costs $158 and the reversible travel tote costs $398.

Coach Signature Stripe iPod CaseThey even have iPod cases so you can really dress up your mp3 player and at the same time have bag and accessories matching. The iPod case costs $88 and is available on their website in the light brown design – perfect to match the tote.

See all the designs on the Coach Website.
