Spoiled Pretty Sneak Peek: Felix Rey for Target!

felix+rey+for+target Spoiled Pretty Sneak Peek: Felix Rey for Target!Target is partnering with two of my favorite handbag designers, Lily Band and Sulaika Zarrouk, to launch a limited-edition handbag collection – Felix Rey for Target.

This chic and incredibly-priced collection is the eighth handbag launch in a series of limited-time-only accessories at Target.

The Felix Rey for Target collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com March 29 through June 14, 2009.

Felix Rey handbags have become a staple on the arms of celebrities, editors and industry insiders alike. Now, stylish women across the country can experience these affordable vibrant designs with the exclusive Felix Rey for Target collection. “Our collection offers whimsical and classic handbags for the fashion forward with a discerning eye,” says Band. “We were so excited to design a value-priced beach-inspired collection for Target!” says Zarrouk. “Our line combines form and functionality, and will take women from the boardroom to the beach in style.”

Inspired by the beach, the Felix Rey for Target collection includes clutches, totes and oversized bucket bags in lightweight canvas and straw, all perfect additions for a summer ensemble or day by the seaside. Gold hardware including shell detailing, studs and toggles, as well as patent and metallic trim add a sophisticated touch to the fanciful collection. Oversized ric-rac prints mimic the ocean, while sequin fish appliqués and coral raffia embroidery add sparkle and color.

The Felix Rey for Target collection ranges in price from $19.99 to $49.99, in comparison to their high-end line which can cost as much as $800.

Star-Crossed Lovers: Me and This Beautiful People Handbag

beautiful+people+grown+up+yone Star Crossed Lovers: Me and This Beautiful People Handbag
Backstage at Baby Phat, I was in stylish company. And I don’t mean Kimora Lee Simmons. I’m referring to my Grown Up Yone handbag by Beautiful People. The crisp apple green patent (Umantao) does double duty; this chic shade is neutral enough to accessorize any ensemble, yet provides a pop of color when you’re sporting the New York uniform – basic black.

 Star Crossed Lovers: Me and This Beautiful People HandbagThe spacious bag – complete with two cavernous side pockets – stealthily held and hid my Fashion Week arsenal (Blackberry, camera, dictaphone, flip cam, notepad, pens, wallet and a pair of ballet flats) without being cumbersome or appearing bulky. It’s perfect for the fast-paced fashionista who lives out of her handbag. Trust me when I tell you that there’s room for your entire life in the interior of the Grown Up Yone, with space to spare.

The Grown Up Yone is so sophisticated and timeless, that it should come as no surprise that Beautiful People’s newest collection was inspired by the greatest love story of all time. Featuring “austere feminine substance with a hint of Shakespearean roses and soft organic contours,“ the Spring 2009 Capulet Collection also includes Juliet, Lady Capulet and Tybalt.

mary+anne Star Crossed Lovers: Me and This Beautiful People Handbag“We are a family business and our goal is to create a legacy of our own to share with women of the world. These trendy fashion accessories have been customized to attract women of panache. Our bags are simply, beautifully, different,” says designer Johanna Boccardo.

The collection’s Little Rose handbag mimics the organic curvature of a rose, and is perfect day or night accessory. The Flat Rose, with its sleek design and lustrous sheen, is the ideal evening clutch. Rosaline, a clean, classic tote, was designed for minimalists who desire a fashionable, yet functional carry-all.

At the end of the night when it came time to remove Grown Up Yone from my arm, I though to myself…

I should kill thee with much cherishing.
Good night, good night!
Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

New Handbag Designer Alert: Della Designed!

 New Handbag Designer Alert: Della Designed!While in NYC for Fashion Week, I was carrying this super stylish (and handy) gray handbag…and getting asked, on every street corner, who designed my tote. As you can probably guess, that was the beginning of many a conversation…once I get talking about handbags, there’s no stopping my motor mouth.

Anyway, I can’t have half of New York knowing about this under-the-radar designer and not let you all in on the scoop. What kind of friend would I be?

After a life-long love affair with purses and years of being teased by friends for being such a ‘handbag buff‘, Della Murphy decided to design her own line of shoulder bags, clutches and totes. At Della Designed, you will find gorgeous, beautifully constructed and functional handbags that are a joy to wear and stop strangers on the street (take it from me). Made with quality leather, the bags maintain their integrity – even with everyday wear. And here’s the best part – every Della Designed handbag is under $200. Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

Della’s handbags are named after family and friends who encouraged and inspired her. I’m not sure who Valerie is, but she must be one hell of a muse because her namesake is so chic.

della+designed+valerie+tote New Handbag Designer Alert: Della Designed!

The slate grey Valerie is crafted with soft leather and prominent silver zippers, in a bold shape. The adjustable shoulder strap provides options for drop length. The interior is lined in cotton and contains enough pockets to keep you thoroughly organized.

If you are looking for a sassy new handbag that no one else is carrying (yet), but you don’t want to break the bank – visit delladesigned.com.

felix+rey+emma+zip+top+cosmetics+case Felix Rey Emma Cosmetics Case Giveaway!!!
Riddle me this…

How many makeup bags are so gorge that you could carry them as an evening clutch and be the chicest gal in the room? Not many…and I would wager that most of them come courtesy of Felix Rey, a sophisticated and ultra-feminine luxury brand of accessories founded by Lily Rafii Band and Sulaika Zarrouk.

Abaco Handbag Sale at Ideeli!!!!!!!!!!!!

abaco+princess+handbag Abaco Handbag Sale at Ideeli!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember that delish Abaco handbag I scored on Ideeli.com last summer? Well, now you can stop drinking the haterade and get one yourself – because Ideeli is having another Abaco handbag sale!!!

Abaco offers roomy handbags without the fuss. Following a true “joie de vivre” philosophy, this Parisian label unites vintage charm with modern practicality, creating a new twist on classic feminine style. Backed by extensive experience as a makeup artist, designer Raquel Achache crafts bags from supple leathers in indefinite colors (such as blue-gray). Because these subtler shades are also harder to find, she works directly with her factories to develop these custom colors, giving Abaco Laguna bags a distinct, sophisticated look. Pair this color palette with perfectly slouched silhouettes and the results manage to feel both new and familiar.

Abaco handbags aren’t easy to come by – and you’ll never find them at the ridiculously affordable prices offered by Ideeli. I’m thinking of buying another one… though I’ve amassed such a collection of purses, Mr. Spoiled Pretty might blow a gasket. Maybe we’ll keep it a secret?

Ideeli’s Surprise Gucci Sale – Friday, January 30th!

gucci Ideeli’s Surprise Gucci Sale   Friday, January 30th!
From the ’30s to the ’80s, Gucci built a reputation for craftsmanship, innovation and, above all, style. Fashion icons from Jackie Kennedy to Elizabeth Taylor to Princess Diana draped themselves in printed scarves, bamboo-trimmed bags and interlocking double G logos. In 1994, when actor-turned-designer “it” boy Tom Ford took the reins as Gucci’s Creative Director, he turned up the heat with styles that radiated pure, unbridled sex appeal. The sleek-yet-feminine styling creates handbags that are decidedly hot but don’t lose their cool, which is perhaps the sexiest combination of all.

Prices start as $135
