Has there ever been a more perfect clutch for me?

I am not sure if I have mentioned it on the blog before, but I might very well have, but I am a huge fan of maps and globes. And of Charlotte Olympia, which is pretty well documented here on the blog. So imagine my excitement when I discovered that Charlotte Olympia had actually designed a globe themed clutch bag!

It is called the Columbus clutch and it is just divine!

This needs to be the first Charlotte Olympia bag I get, I have been admiring her bags for ages but never got around to getting one, but now there is no excuse! I just need to find a way to see this beauty IRL to make sure it is as pretty as in the pictures first...

My new Louis Vuitton handbag

I recently traveled to Hong Kong (you can read more about this trip here and here), where I did a bit of shopping of course, Hong Kong being absolute heaven for shoppers and all. And of course I could not come home without a new handbag, so off to Louis Vuitton I went!

I am not too keen on the monogrammed Louis Vuitton bags, as you see them, and fakes resembling them, pretty much everywhere, so I opted for a simple black version instead.
This is a small pochette that I believe will come in handy during the evening and at events, where you really need a simple, non-fussy bag.

I am very pleased with my first Louis Vuitton bag, even though I have not had a chance to use it a whole lot yet. But it is very pretty!

My new Longchamp leather bag

I got this recently on a trip, as I first fell in love with the matching sneakers, but as I love the matchy matchy look, I decided to get the matching bag as well.

I think this will be a perfect bag for those days when you need to run around and do errands!

Charlotte Olympia Librarian Handbag

As an avid (well, that's an understatement actually!) reader, another one of the new Charlotte Olympia bags that I really, really love is the Librarian one. It is just gorgeous and full of books, of course. What could be better than that?

Charlotte Olympia Eiffel tower clutch

I have a handbag shaped like the Eiffel tower. I have showed it off here on the blog before, here and wrote about the company that made it here, but my bag is not a clutch. So when I spotted this Charlotte Olympia bag that has been inspired by my favorite sight anywhere in the world I kind of feel like I need the clutch too...
After all, I don't think there is such a thing as too many Eiffel tower bags, is there?

And of course...

... since I am posting anyway, I would like to take the opportunity, just in case anyone from Paris or France should see this, to say that my thoughts are definitely with everyone in Paris, connected to Paris or any of the victims in yesterdays horrific events. The most beautiful city of the world certainly is going through a tough time before, but as it has done so in the past as well, I am sure the city's amazing population will stay strong in face of this horror and find the joie de vivre that they are so famous for again.

Thank you for many wonderful memories (and handbags!), Paris! You should know that all over the world people are with you in spirit right now!

Kate Spade has some new champagne bags

As a lover of champagne, it is no wonder I am immediately drawn to champagne themed bags when I see them. I have mentioned some pretty cool champagne themed bags here on the blog before, see this and this for instance, but I just noticed Kate Spade has two really nice new champagne themed bags out now too.

This is my favorite:

But this one is pretty cool, too. (I love the message on it!)

And I really think this year I need to have a champagne bag for New Year's Eve!
