These Bags Are Made For Toting

Ladies, thinking of stocking in the new bags. Well, you're just lucky that your FASHION GODFATHER, that's ME (hahaha!!!) wants to warn you on the bags you can't ignore. Here are my top three bags. It may be an It-Bag or just a bag but just stock it.


This golden leather bag is a variant from the ever-famous Paddington bag, which caused a stir in the fashion world not long ago, after it was created by now-I'm-a-full-time-mommy designer Phoebe Philo during her stint with Chloe. What differs this bag with the typical Paddington bag that most of you have shelved inside the darkest corner of your wardrobe is that its more compact and fabulous. It also features the trademark large padlock and brass hardware, a common feature for any Paddington bag. Although I have yet seen it being toted by any of the it-girls like Sienna Miller or Paris Hilton (she's not It right? Whatever!), maybe this is your chance to try your luck as the next It-girl. After all, Sienna and co. is getting older right?


The much-prized brand in the handbag industry, Bottega Veneta is renowned for the hallmarked interciatto weave leather goods. Although the fashion house is considered as a new kid on the block, its bags, shoes and ready-to-wear line have captured the attention of all the jetsetters and fashion devotees around the world. It is hard to find a socialite not to have a single piece of Bottega. in other words, Bottega Veneta items are pieces des resistance. The fuschia colored leather and velvet handbag is a limited edition item from the house. It's a frame bag and features the solid leather front pockets, two leather handles with velvet trim and small inner pocket with press stud fastening. The interior is lined in chocolate suede with a fuschia leather base. The bag fastens at top of frame with silver clasp. This bag is seriously a must-have for Tomas Maier fans and will be available at Bottega Veneta stores this coming Fall.


Did you see what Carrie Bradshaw and friends have been clutching around the chic Manhattan, while hunting for love and men (that's Samantha) or maybe what have the likes of Hillary Swank, Jennifer Garner or Susan Sarandon clutched at the annual Oscar and Golden Globe Awards year to year? Well, if you still don't know then that's Judith Leiber. The dame of all glittery and starry bags, Judith Leiber is not a new name in the world of fashion. Add a glamour feel to your night out with Judith Leiber's Svarovski Floral Clutch. This small rigid rectangular clutch is encrusted with crystals in Red, cream and pale blue Swarovski crystals. The clutch has a detachable gold chain, gold piping with a push clasp on top and gold leather lining. It also comes with a separate small leather coin purse and gold framed mirror to keep inside.
