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!

The amazing Judith Leiber globe clutch

I lvoe globes of all kinds, I even collect the classic world globes, and as you know, I am quite a big fan of bags as well, so what could be a better combination for me than a globe clutch bag?

And Judith Leiber has created just that!

I find it simply amazing, there is no other word for it!

The only thing that could make this bag better is if the sea would have been blue on it, like on a classic globe, and I must say I am kind of curious as to why Judith Leiber chose not to make it blue.

Looking for the perfect bag for the holidays this year?

(Assuming, of course, that you like holiday themed bags in general)

If so, may I suggest Disaster Design's Once Upon A Time Hansel and Gretel Mini House Bag?

I think it is absolutely adorable, and due to the gingerbread aspect, quite suitable for Christmas as well!

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!
