Crazy for Clutches

I love handbags! This season there’s a lot of emphasis on clutches. They’re small but mighty. Perfect for date night or other special occasions.

This season a lot of designers are focusing on the clutch bag. Almost every major collection features some sort of clutch that translates into a little work of art that you can hold in your hand. I’ve picked a few of my favorite pieces to share with you.

The first pic is Charlotte Olympia’s perfume bottle clutch. OMG!!! When I look at this I cry. It’s so frickin’ adorable! I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to a champagne brunch.

The second pic is Givenchy. It’s perfect for a night out on the town. I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to see a Rock band.

The third pic is Christian Louboutin’s all-over spiked clutch. I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me on an adventure (or at least to an awesome restaurant).

The fourth pic is Kate Spade’s cinema clutch. Really? Can she get any cooler? I am torn between Kate and Charlotte this season. They both bring so much creativity to their designs. Anyway, I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to the theater. (In New York.)

I hope if you’re reading this (person who is going to buy me stuff and take me places) you realize that happiness is at your fingertips, so get a grip.

Mod Squad

Marc (Have I told you I love you?) Jacobs is going MOD for his Spring 2013 collection. Look for bold geometrics, clean lines, stripes, chunks and blocks. He captures the ’60s fashion trend with short mini dresses and skirts, then swings the pendulum to long, sweeping maxi-dresses. I love the sharpness of the line and can’t wait to delve into spring.

Happy Tuesday!

Fox Trot!

The fox icon is gaining popularity in the fashion world. Although I still love Mr. Owl and anything with a bird on it, it’s time for the avian creatures to perch for a while. You know the fox is hot when Burberry uses fox head hardware on their handbags and when Tory Burch picks an all-over fox print for her latest totes. Look for jewelry, T-shirts, handbags and details with foxes for this seasons new icon. I’m going to Nordstrom now to purchase the Tory bag, it’s just too cool!

I hope everyone has a great week! And get FOXY!!!

Fur Sure!

Fur Sure!
After hours of walking and talking fashion last week in Vegas, it’s safe to say that fur is a key player in this season’s line up. Look for fur handbags and clutches, colored, fur vests, and fur trim on everything from bracelets to shirt collars. Of course “real” fur is a faux pas, so pass on that (unless you want PETA lambasting and stalking you) and stick with the fun, colorful, synthetic pieces.

Full Bloom

This is a sneak peek from Marc Jacob’s 2013 Resort Show. If you’re hesitant on purchasing loud prints and bold colors, think again. Vibrant floral prints, pattern mixing and color blocking still leads the way in fashion. Marc’s line is full of amazing, pop colors in clothing, handbags and shoes. I love the fabric choices and I’m excited that color is still the new black.

The outfit on the right is calling my name. It’s time for me to refinance my mortgage so I can continue to feed my clothing habit.

Have a nice week!

Rare Bird

ImageImage

I’m intrigued and inspired by Iris Apfel. The 90 year-old fashion maven was recently the muse for MAC Cosmetics, and now she is launching her own handbag line called “Extinctions”. She uses materials like Mongolian lamb, calf hair and snake skin. The bags are dramatic and eccentric just like Iris herself and the tortoise logo, hang tag is a dodo bird. “It’s an odd bird, like me.” Said Apfel. The bags are roomy and oversized, and according to Iris there will not be any tiny clutches or small collections. She jests that her signature style, round-rimmed glasses are so huge, that they won’t fit into anything small or dainty. This woman gives me hope─ she never ceases to amaze me with her ongoing creativity and design. Age is of no barrier to her and I hope that  when I’m 90, I have just as much passion and zest for life as she does. Roadkill Girls love you Iris!

“I have a lot of creative juices─I like to use them or it chokes me.” ─Iris Apfel 2012.
