Like Disney cartoons?

If so, you simply must take a look at Olympia Le Tan's amazing cartoon themed clutch collection.

You can choose from book cluthes depicting Dumbo, 101 Dalmatians, The Lady and the Tramp and Bambi, and every small detail on these clutches is simply gorgeous!

I want all of these to be honest! And I already have a bunch of book clutches! (although no cartoon themed ones, to be honest)

Charlotte Olympia's Mexican bag collection

I think this collection of bags is really, really fun. Although maybe not that useful, because where would you take all these Mexican bags, and not feel a bit ridiculous about it?

Charlotte Olympia actually branded this as a Cruise Collection, so she intends it for Mexican holidays, which is a nice idea, but wouldn't that just make you feel a bit too touristy?

I do think these bags would be really fun for Mexican themed parties, though, but how often does one go to those?

(see the bags on Charlotte Olympia's website, here, here and here)

Like the Luxe look?

If so, Charlotte Olympia's new Gold Bar clutch bag might be a good choice for you. Because what can be more luxurious than pure gold?
Not that this clutch is made out of pure gold, of course, but it certainly looks like it is! And to be honest, it has a price tag to go along with the look... But then again, most Charlotte Olympia bags do...

My new Furla bag

My husband was travelling for business and was kind enough to get me a present from a duty free store. Since he knows how much I like handbags, and had heard me mention the timeless and classic, as well as affordable brand Furla in the past, he decided to get me a Furla bag.
It turned out to be a black, rather classic model, which was great for me, since I have been using my black small Longchamp Le Pliage bag way too much lately. However, since that bag is the smallest available Longchamp bag, it does not fit everything I need it to fit all the time, even though it swallows an impressive amount of stuff, considering its small size. So it was great to get a slightly bigger bag, but not a huge one, since this is really the size I needed the most at the moment. So while this was a present, it is something I would have chosen myself as well!
This is how it looks out of the wraps:

I am sure I will get quite a lot of use out of this one, considering its classic shape and color, as well as how much I have used the other Furla bag I own (see that one here). So sometimes it definitely pays off to teach your husband about your bag obsession, as well as about different handbag brands you like, hehe!

ALDO is not the only company making champagne bags

I just noticed Kate Spade makes them too! And I will say, I think she does it even better than ALDO. Just take a look:

While this is not technically a champagne bottle bag, like ALDO's (see my post about their champagne bottle bag here, if you missed it), this is somehow more wearable all year round, as opposed to just on New Year's Eve, if you ask me. So I think I prefer the Kate Spade version myself...

My latest handbag obsession...

... definitely has to be the new rainbow colored Valentino Rockstud collection, from their Resort 2015 line. I've always loved really colorful bags, and it really doesn't get any better than this! (Well, maybe if you match it with the matching shoes...)

The perfect bag for anyone who gambles

(something I am not really into, myself, to be honest)

has to be Kate Spade's Place Your Bets bags. You can choose between a wristlet:

And a clutch:

And I believe I saw some matching coin purses somewhere too.

I love all the attention to details on these bags, it is so cool that they made such an effort with the back too, making the bags really look like "real" playing cards!
