Tods Flower Totes Handbags

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

We know most Celine fans are luggage, trapeze and phantom hunters, these bags are like drugs, you just can’t get enough from it. It’s like salt water, the more we drink, the thirstier we get. But we though the Celine Pocket Handbag in Seashell was not very important enough to review, until we received a question from Tiff: ‘Can someone tell me the price of the Celine Calfskin Pocket in Seashell?’. Tiff was referring to the latest Winter 2014 Collection of course, but if we take our time to review the Fall 2014 Collection, you can see that this bag is released in both collections. Two collections and 1 type of bag is enough to draw our attention. The Celine Pocket Handbag in Seashell is a shoulder bag and it looks kind-of funny – like an envelope. It’s designed in the Celine way, which means tri-colors (you know how Celine love to mix colors). The bag is squared and it comes with a golden chain strap. The bag can be closed with the snap embellished on the front flap. It’s crafted from smooth calfskin, but also available in stamped pony for the fuzzy bag lovers. The colors are perfect for the fall and winter – it’s darker to match your winter wardrobe. So what do you think? A bag to love or not? When I read ‘flower’, I couldn’t control myself; ‘I just got to see what is’. Well, first of all; it’s from the brand Tods. They have a few classic designs that we love – you know, like the D-Cube Totes, the Sella Bag or the D.D. Totes. Tods spend a lot of thoughts and energy in craftsmanship; they use the best quality leather, detailed attention in cutting, work and sewing (all by hands). Each single object becomes an unique piece, a masterpiece. Tods Flower Tote Collection is one of their latest releases; it’s an one-of-the kind bag – have you ever heard of a tote bag with a shape inspired by flowers? Nah, me neither. The tote is not only gorgeous, but the top has a wobbling sensual structure that mirrors the head of a flower. It comes in different colors, even in winter shades. Crafted from semi-glossy tumbled leather, with elegant hexagonal studs. The logo ‘TODS’ is printed in the center, a sophisticated touch with a fringed luggage tag. The Tods Flower Tote comes in two sizes, small and medium. The small size is measured 22 x 24 x 13 cm, priced at $1095 USD, the medium size is measured 28 x 27 x 16 cm.

How I Built A Designer Wardrobe On A Budget

CATEGORIES:Fashion

How I Built A Designer Wardrobe On A Budget
Photo by Alex Ulreich

Of all of the misleading beauty and fashion stories I read online, the most disappointing are always the ones with headlines promising “affordable” looks only to reveal themselves as a litany of products between $150 and $1,000, all usually too trendy to last more than a season or two. I have come to accept that Gwyneth Paltrow hasn’t yet been informed about the bottom four tax brackets, so I just chuckle when GOOP pulls this shit, but I want fashion sites and magazines to do me a solid here. (Except Vogue—I want Vogue to call me a tasteless trash peasant so that I will always keep an eye toward self-improvement.)

So when I started hearing about new online platforms as destinations to buy on-trend designer items on consignment, I expected moderate discounts on clothes that were originally so wildly unaffordable that a markdown would not make enough of a difference for me to actually buy anything. Sites like Vestiaire Collective and Snob Swap proved my assumption wrong very quickly, but it was ultimately TheRealReal that got me to actually invest the time and energy into finding and buying items that I thought only czarinas and tycoon’s daughters could afford. The combination of a thorough and rigorous authentication process with an absurd number of sales on designer goods from recent seasons means that I found items from designers like Prada and Yves Saint Laurent priced similarly to items I’ve bought at places like J. Crew and Reformation on the higher end, and even Zara and Uniqlo on the lower.

But reader, I did not simply happen upon such treasures. I developed a strategy. I schemed and plotted until the time was right to strike gold, sometimes quite literally. Because I am benevolent, I have shared my methods here.

Write A Priority List of Dream Items
Now is a good time to dust off that “Perfect Wardrobe” Pinterest board you haven’t touched in a while. You know, the one where are all your biggest fashion fantasies live. Whether you saw a particular Oscar de la Renta stiletto that implanted into your brain or you’ve just always wanted a Prada bag, make a list of the items that you really want before you even start browsing. Writing this list doesn’t mean that these are the only things you can ever buy, but it will center your mind on priority items before you get into the thick of it.

Pay Attention to the Homepage
What I like about TheRealReal homepage is that it never forces me to look at a high-concept fashion shoot in Flash before it shows me the good stuff; namely, the promo code for additional discounts on select items and sales of the day:

There are new two new sales launched every single day, and they generally include new merchandise—not just inventory they’re trying to move. Browse the sales to get a feel for the range of prices and designers available so you don’t end up with some Renaissance Faire frock (unless that’s your look).

One thing to know is that even though the promo code has an expiration date on it, there is almost always a promo code available or coming again soon so don’t force yourself to buy anything just to get in on the discount. Also, note that not all items qualify for the promo code, but those that do will have it appear on their product page:

Do Not Buy Anything That Isn’t From Your Dream List Until Your Third Visit to the Site
So unless your dream Givenchy bridal gown is there in pristine condition in your size, you should hold out for the desired item until it gets an even deeper discount. Sometimes, the initial shock of seeing a designer you’ve loved at a remarkably low price will obscure the fact that the item is profoundly and inexcusably ugly. I made the mistake of getting giddy over designers I adored and ended up with a Miu Miu skirt I’m lukewarm about and a Stella McCartney blouse that makes me look like a medieval sorcerer’s apprentice, but not in the cool way you might be thinking.

So I’ve since made a shorter list of personal dream items: they are this pre-fall 2015 Carolina Herrera gown, this Chanel Exclusive Embroidered Boy bag from the Cruise 2014 collection, and almost anything in a pattern by Needle & Thread, Mary Katrantzou, or Vilshenko. Carolina Herrera gowns are on TheRealReal in my size almost every time I search, so I’m hoping that it is only a matter of time before that bad boy appears so I can finally host high-end fundraisers that double as swingers’ parties at my country estate. Chanel Boy bags are also on TheRealReal all the time but this one is currently listed at $  which is more than I’m prepared to spend on pretty much anything other than maybe paying the ransom for my cat in the event he is catnapped. So for now, my Chanel dreams must wait. But reader, do not weep for my troubles, cry with joy at the abundance I have found!

After many months of regularly searching for the other designers mentioned above, lo and behold, this Needle & Thread beaded dream dress with tags went up on the site in my size. It was $  after promo code, and it retailed in the last year for $  . I probably cracked a finger bone slamming on that “Add to Cart” button in a consumerist joy blackout.

Use the “Obsess” Button to Build Your Collection
Shopping carts time out in 20 minutes on TheRealReal so don’t use “Add to Cart” function until you are definitely ready to check out soon or if you see something that you think might get snatched up really fast. On every product page, there is a small heart and the word “Obsess” to the right of the product photo and below the descriptions and financing options. Click it if you like something but aren’t quite ready to buy it, knowing that it won’t put the item on hold for you. Instead, it will go into your “Obsessions” collection, which you can access by clicking the heart in the top right of the screen on the desktop and the center bottom on mobile.

WARNING: You will watch your Obsessions collection dwindle as people buy up the items. It will hurt at first but ultimately functions as a character building and design discernment exercise.

Fashionable Handbag in Fall/ Winter 2016-2017

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

It is said that the way you hold your handbag speaks much about your personality, temperament and the mood of the moment. Whether you carry your cross-body bag in front of the body thus spitting out your feeling shy or wear your tote in the crook of elbow thus declaring status and position being your priorities, the fall/ winter 2016-2017 handbags have their powerful say in this sphere to maybe demolish your habitual handbag scheme and the way of holding them. The fall/ winter 2016-2017 handbag trends rounded up under our close scrutiny are in a quest to offer up a plethora of designer bag designs and to bring in new ways of carrying them.

1. Hands-Free Fanny Packs

Hands-Free Fanny Packs

Number one hands-free ultra-comfortable bag type among the fall 2016 handbags is surely the fanny pack outpacing even cross-bodies. Just call to mind all those activities you can carry out with fanny-packs perched around your waist – starting from hands-free hot coffee drinking to cold ice-cream licking when walking down the street, not to mention the facility and security of your iPhone and money. This kangaroo-pouch-reminiscent bag style has surely attracted many a designer having all the potential to become the It bag of 2016. Meet them in droves from down-and-out versions to more chic and chichi options.

Saddle-bag-shaped fanny packs are making a perfect pair with military tomboyish garments at 3.1 Phillip Lim, while reticule-style ones are prettily decorating fit and flaring silhouettes at Celine. At Elie Saab fanny packs are black, crocheted and delicate, while at Off-White – gold-plated and shimmering. Find a new way of carrying fanny packs with the chain strap twirled around the belt at Chanel and leap to a new category at Undercover to carry them on hips of your pants fastened by pins.

2. Leave It Open

Leave It Open

There is no denying that many fashion designers might have left their fall 2016 handbags open intentionally on the runway not for demonstrating a new way of carrying them, but just to show off the interior designs of their creations to the onlookers. Regardless of their motives we fall head over heels in love with this cool handbag trend (at least no fret any more when you forget to zip your baguette bag or leave your saddle bag flab swing backwards).

While there are some doubts regarding other fashion houses, Dior’s shoulder bag left open to unfold and show off a purse pocket is beyond the shadow of a doubt to be also a strong propaganda to carry them right that way down the streets. We see Jonathan Anderson’s carry-all slouchy creations for Loewe, unzipped from the middle part and exposing their extra space to hide more things, but admit that when not so many things are necessary to carry, it would be cool to unzip and zip along. The same way we highly appreciate Anya Hindmarch’s solution to unzip messenger bags thus forming a lip-shape illusion at the top section.

3. Bags with Swinging Tassels & Fringing

Bags with Swinging Tassels & Fringing

Number one western style barometer, tassels are yet again making their way through the fashion world albeit not in so much volume as last year, yet swinging and jumping on the fall/ winter 2016-2017 handbags as well. Altuzarra’s saddle bags are flaunting wisps of tassels here and there on straps or on flaps, while the iridescent wisps of tassels are aligned in apple-pie order on straps at Elie Saab. We see bunches of strings decorating miniature top handled bags at DSquared2, many suede tassels at Ralph Lauren and leather ones hanging from the bottom of the delicate reticules at Roberto Cavalli.

4. Printed and Embellished Handbags

printed embellished bags

If there is one fall 2016 handbag trend begetting intensive binge-watching, that is the trend of printed and embellished handbags happening everywhere up hill and down dale. Dolce & Gabbana is calling the tune with its myriads of sophisticated exemplars – fairy-tale boxy pieces and other handbag styles all encrusted with gems, floral embellishments and prints, optical illusion and houndstooth prints and goodness knows what else. Alessandro Michele’s creations for Gucci concede D&G in no way in terms of prints and embellishments.

We see a range of Dionysus City bags with some botanical and abstract embroidery or with some bejeweled panoply but also other staples showing some zigzag and psychedelic patters. At Christopher Kane you will find lovely crocheted flowers attached here and there, at Dries Van Noten velvet clutches are all decorated with tender feathers, at Fendi it is all about kaleidoscopic and optical illusion views, while at Salvatore Ferragamo iridescent stripes and zigzags come into view. The list of trendsetters lengthens including Giorgio Armani, Miu Miu, Prada, Proenza Schoulder, Dries Van Noten, Chanel, Christian Dior and many others.

5. Searching for Unique Colorblocks

colorblocked bags

Never stay blocked in some place but fling yourself into colorblocks much as contemporary fashion designers are doing at this juncture. Colorblocked handbags indubitably stand head and shoulders above monochromatic versions. Just a glance at those diplomatic and half-moon handbags by Boss, a whole lot of classic ones by Versace and a couple of shoulder bags by Tory Burch and you will be completely swept off your feet!

6. Freaky and Eccentric Bag Designs

eccentric bags

Just in case you hanker for leveraging looks in a New York minute, here come those freaky and eccentric fall 2016 handbags that made us freak out many a time and oft when the fashion month was in full blast. Even if some of us find them out-and-out inappropriate to carry in real life, looking at them only is more than enough to blow away the cobwebs.

You might find the most eccentric fall 2016 handbags at Dolce & Gabbana, for sure – a mini chandelier bag and another manikin in the form of Cinderella’s after-spell carriage, a range of boxy handbags either in the form of horizontally aligned books or presenting a small fragment as if cut from a soft boudoir sofa. We catch a freaky yellow handbag in the form of a thread spool at Chanel, a mysterious diary-book-shaped clutch at Prada and a handful of ghostly samples at Anya Hindmarch.

And you might even take the fall 2016 fashion month as an exceptional period to pay homage to your dogomania essence – grab those realistic dog-shaped fluffy handbags from Jeremy Scott and Thom Browne and pat them on and on throughout the chilly seasons.
