In an early preparation for spring fashion, this Big Budda Mia Bag is the most fabulous accessory (when striking a pose)! The large flowers screams statement bag and adds instant femininity to even the drabbest outfit. This bag comes in Fuchsia, Gunmetal Metallic (snake print) and black patent. The best part about this bag is that while it’s a statement piece, it’s not an investment piece! You won’t have to save 2 months rent to get this bad boy.
Add a splash of femininity to your world with the Big Budda:

I have to admit, I am slightly obsessed with Rough Roses Hand bag line. And so are celebs galore (Britney Spears, Kristin Cavalleri, Lauren Conrad, Gulliana Rancic… to name a few). The Beverly Hills 90210 star, Anne Lynn McCord, was spotted with Rough Roses Whitney bag on her shoulder and her entire look was flawless.
Rough Roses is a fashion accessories company designed by Wynn Katz who specializes in Italian leather handbags and belts that include custom branded hardware. These designs are currently being sold in Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdales, and many high end boutiques in the Los Angeles area including American Rag.

It’s no secret that big, bold, neon colors are in this fall but before I run to the boutiques on a crazed quest to find the perfect neon yellow boyfriend jacket, I think I will start slow and accessorize in neon instead.
Michael Kors recently launched a delicious line of Neon Patent Leather Clutches that will leave you in sensory overload. Hot pink and neon yellow patent leathery goodness! Oh my! These perfect little clutches are great going-out accessories that will instantly make you the fashionista of the party and be a great conversation piece! This means less time bellied up to the tiki bar and more time talking about your amazing style.
These Patent Leather Neon Clutches are a pretty penny…$595 each. If you don’t have the extra cash to shell out for these day-glow items, I’ve found some low cost options that should tickle your fancy.

When Miuccia Prada launched her MIU MIU line, I was only 10 years old, but I still remember leafing through my mom’s W and Vanity Fair’s to see the stylish “youth oriented” styles. I was a fan from day one. That might explain the borderline obsession I have with this MIU MIU studded leather clutch.
Supple black leather? Check. Stylish gold studs? Check. Nice size? Check. This bag has so much to offer, it can add a little toughness to sweet looks and can totally dress up jeans and a tank.
Clutches are never out of style, no matter how much giant hobo and doctor bags may be “in”, when you are ready for a night out- stylish and classic clutch is the way to go. No one needs to schlep their life to a bar or dinner: cash, some lip gloss, keys and phone. Done!
Also check out the Michael Kors Delancey clutch for a more affordable way to enjoy this look!
Cost: $475.00 (buy it once, use it forever).

The new It bag this fall is Yves saint Laurent’s Roady Bag. Now, I consider myself somewhat of a fashion voyeur. I love to look, want, obsess over the latest and greatest it items without always buying these tasty morsels. And if my internal fashion compass is steering me in the right direction, I don’t think I am in love with this bag…or shelling out hard cash for it either.
Yes, who doesn’t love a great, slouchy leather name-brand bag? I certainly have my fair share of oversized, “carry everything in my bathroom” super expensive designer totes…but why is this bag the it bag this fall? It’s just shy of $1,800, its black, and there is (slightly boring) braid work along the rails of the bag. Hmm…I feel a slight case of fashionista …eh hmm…blue balls.
If you want to rock the same look as Mary Kate Olsen and Katy Perry, you can call YSL and put your name on the wait list. 212-980-2970.
If you are a bit more fiscally responsible (yay for you!), you can get this same hobo, black look for a fraction of the cost and then take the money you saved and fly yourself to NYC and laugh at the YSL waitlist.
