Another neon pink laser cut clutch

Remember my neon pink laser cut clutch from ASOS that I got a while ago? Well, I saw that ASOS is now selling another version of this bag, that actually looks even nicer! So if you are on the lookout for a laser cut bag in pink, I highly recommend that you check this one out:

I think it looks great, plus it is not as flat as the one I got (which was the only negative thing I had to say about it), so it looks like a really good buy to me!

Modern, yet classic Burberry bag

I like Burberry, but I can get kind of tired of their logos and their typical Burberry patterns. Just logos and  signature patterns are simply not enough to keep me interested for a long time. But if they do something like this:
... I would consider getting one of their bags. This is something a bit different and more modern compared to most of their bags after all.

(I have a classic blue Burberry bag with a matching blue Burberry patterned cashmere scarf, but I rarely use these, simply because I think it is so over done. So it was really about time Burberry started adding a little something to their bags instead of just playing it safe!)

Fun colors on new Dolce & Gabbana tote

I really love the colors used on this Dolce & Gabbana shopping tote.

Both the mint green and the pink work really well for spring, I think. But too bad the bag is so see through. I don't like see through bags at all (I guess I'm kind of secretive or something?), not even if they are not completely see through like this one, so I won't be getting this bag, but still wanted to show it to you guys due to the gorgeous colors.

Something really unique from Versace

I'm not really a huge Versace fan, even though I have an amazing vintage Versace bag in blue croc skin, but I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by this bag, that I spotted over at Net-a-Porter today.

It doesn't look very Versace at all, I think, and maybe that's actually why I like it?

I also think the scalloped edges look adorable, as do the colors chosen for this bag.

In short: This is a hit by a brand who has had some really... - less attractive collections, shall we say? - lately.

Fun new Longchamp bags released

I've always liked Longchamp bags, and while the shapes and sizes of these bags do not change that much over the years, you still never get tired with this brand because they always come up with new and fun designs. This time, the new Longchamp bags are designed by Mary Katrantzou and Jeremy Scott.

The first one with the postcard is my favorite. But I am not sure I like it enough to expand my Longchamp collection at the moment.

Cute London map bag from Topshop

So, one thing you might remember if you've been reading this blog for a while, is that I really like maps. Another thing, or place, rather, that I really like is London, which is one of my favorite cities in the entire world, and a city that I have spent a lot of time in over the years.

That's probably why I think this Topshop bag with a London map on it is so cool:
So I am definitely going to go visit my local Topshop store as soon as possible to see if I can get my hands on this cutie!

Valentino Silk-georgette rosette clutch

Valentino has been making bags with roses on them for a while now, but this Silk-georgette rosette clutch is one of my favorites.

The crystals on top add an interesting detail to the bag, and the shape and size is very good too.

Fantastic handbag giveaway

I know anyone who reads this blog is crazy about handbags, so I just want to tell you about this amazing handbag giveaway that I spotted over at Luuux.

Fashion Chalet is giving away a Balenciaga Arena Classic City bag in black, and this is simply such a classic bag (I've loved Balenciaga's city bags for years!) that I really recommend that you take part. (I am, myself, by writing this post, I hope).

See the give away here and good luck everyone!

Trendy and adorable star print clutch

Star prints are all the rage right now, and I personally love this trend, it's both fun and inspirational in a kind of "aim for the stars" reminder kind of way.

So it's no wonder that more and more designers are starting to add star prints to bags as well.

I really like this Miu Miu clutch with handpainted stars for instance.

My new black basic leather bag

I promised a while ago to actually blog about some of my own new bags. So let's start the weekend off by doing just that!
First of all, my neon pink clutch bag from ASOS finally arrived.
It looks really cute in real life too, even though it is slightly larger than I expected, and maybe the material could be a bit sturdier as well, but other than that I am really pleased with it.

I also got a nice present for the holidays from my dear husband, who of course knows of my fondness for handbags. He chose a pretty basic, but pretty black leather handbag for me to use every day for work.
That was actually exactly what I needed. I do have some black every day work bags, but they are all getting a bit worn, so a new one was a really welcome addition to my collection.
The bag is made by a local Israeli designer, so no big name brand, but the quality seems to be rather high.

Gorgeous printed shopper by Anya Hindmarch

I love funny bags. The latest funny bag I am craving is this printed newspaper headline Anya Hindmarch shopper.

The only thing you need to be a bit careful when getting a fun bag like this is not to use it too often around the same people, since the bag itself is very memorable, so people are definitely going to remember having seen this one before!

Mila Kunis is the new face of Dior

Well, of their handbags anyway.
What a cool job! And I personally definitely think Mila fits the bill, she is very classy and has a look that goes well with the brand's image (even though I have to say I am not a fan of all the characters she's played as an actress, but that doesn't really reflect on her personally).

The first shots of Mila fronting the brand can be expected on the 15th of January, according to Fashionista, where the pic is from as well.

Khloe Kardashian's awesome Hermes bag

I really love it, the color is amazing! (Not that Kim's bag is that shabby either, but Khloe's bag beats hers by a mile!)
