Wanted: New Handbag & Your Vote

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Perhaps you’ll recall my spring handbag dilemma where I wanted but couldn’t choose a yellow handbag.  I eventually found a Nine West croc bag on sale for $45 dollars at a local store, and I’ve carried this bag since March.  It’s the perfect size.  Big enough to stash my wallet, Nikon camera, and the essential sippy cups and kid snacks.  Bonus:  it has a zebra print satin interior.  By now, there’s all sorts of coins, crumbs and ancient receipts crushed in the bottom of my sassy zebra print.  Sad, but true – that’s mommyhood for you.  But now the yellow is played, and it’s time for a new fall bag.   

Sneaky Mr. CG snapped this one a few weeks ago in Napa while we were waiting for lunch at Bouchon.  Nice indifferent expression.  Thanks hun.  It’s also a rare photo of me semi-dolled up.  But more importantly, it’s the only shot I have of the bag.

Now that the seasons are changing, and I’m on the hunt for a fall and winter bag.  I’m a pretty practical gal when it comes to my daily tote.  In my pre-offspring days, I would rotate my daily bags.  Ha.  That’s funny to me now.  There’s just no time for that these days.

I prefer a stylish choice that I can carry all season long.  Preferably a hobo.  And I’m hyper focused on metallics right now.  So I’m calling on all of you friends to give put in your shiny coppery two cents. 

Get it?  Metallics?  Coppery two cents? 

Never mind. 

Guidelines: 

  1. Any of the bags over $100 dollars are just eye candy. 
  2. Indulge me.  Pretend you like metallics just as much as I do. 
  3. Help me narrow down the reasonable choices. 

Here they are ranked in order from outrageously delicious luxurious choices to the more reasonable in price.

Highlighted Hue: Peacock Blue

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Perhaps you saw my tweet a few days ago where I mentioned the peacock feathers I purchased at Pier One. J’adore les plumes de paon. They’re an exotic, distinctive ornament – there is no mistaking it. But like any animal print, one must exercise restraint. Less is always more.

I have long been in love with the color peacock blue. Deeper than turquoise, fairer than indigo. It is bold by day, sultry by night. Paired with cream and golden bronze tones, it makes a daring design statement. So please indulge me in my latest fixation.

Where to begin?
