Great Bag If You Can Wait

Categories:Other Brands

This is a really great review by a lovely reader, Victoria Woods, who was on to some great little tactics for pre-screening your purchase. She also gets my full respect for hounding the customer service when she was mistreated and her package was missing. This is the kind of active shoppers I like to hear from! Love it!

“Hey Ms. Eva!

I wanted to share a review of my recent Mulberry Bayswater purchase from bag. I first did my search through Bag for a Bayswater and was going to make the purchase when I noticed small differences in detail from the pictures on the Mulberry site and Bag site. The zipper was going from left to right as opposed to right to left, as well as the Mulberry leather patch inside on the Bag site was square/rectangle as opposed to the oval shape on the Mulberry site. But, I came to find out through web searches and forums that this is normal in some purses (supposedly, haven’t seen any pictures to verify yet). So I made my purchase on bag on the 26th of February. What sweetened the deal was the free shipping and the deal of purchasing more items gave me a discount on the total price. I basically got a Tiffany bracelet for free and brought the price of the purse down by a couple of dollars.

After a week, I got anxious waiting to here back about if it had shipped out. I sent a couple of messages (since there’s no phone number) with no response. I was starting to get upset because they have my money yet I have no purse, let alone any information of what’s going on. After about a week and half from placing the order, I finally get an email saying it shipped…great! So I go to try and track it from the information they gave and it didn’t show any information. After a day or two of the same message I got scared again. I sent two more emails demanding to know what was going on with my order and finally got a response back on Monday (03/14) that they had given me the wrong shipping company and said it was on it’s way and I should receive it by Tuesday or Wednesday. So…thankfully I received my package yesterday and here are the results 
The purse smelled soooo good, like real leather (I keep smelling it, lol) and it was more than I expected. The quality of leather is just a wonder. It’s a mirror image of what I see on the Mulberry site and other purse sites. The stitching is perfect and it contains the Made In England tag and everything. The purse looks a bit more shiny in the pics as I had to use my camera on my phone (damn droid x). But as you can see the purse looks great and I love it. I’m not in love with their line of communication but considering it came from China, I guess I should’ve been little more patient but I don’t regret my actions.”

What do you girls think, have you had any experience with Beubag.com so far?

Replica Handbags At Purse: My Christmas Shopping Spree

Categories:Other Brands

This morning I woke up and had a terrible realization: There are less than two weeks of Christmas shopping left! And, I`ve hardly begun. Rather than flying off into a panic, I lay in bed for a moment and composed myself, then proceeded to put on a pot of coffee and turn on my computer. You see, when I was laying there in bed I remembered that Purse always has a great Christmas gift Ideas section and, after doing some quick mental math, I realized that I had just enough time to get those Christmas orders in and ensure I get the bags before the big day. In 30 minutes I knocked three people off my list…in my pyjamas! replica Hermes Kelly bag.Want to know what I got?

Up first is my 17-year-old cousin Arianna. I just adore Ari. She`s a really cool girl and she`s growing up to be a woman so fast (right in front of my eyes!). I know her taste pretty well – cousin Eva takes her shopping every time she comes to Miami, luck girl – so I think I hit the nail right on the head when I got her a replica Fendi Peekaboo. This bag is super hip with its` graffiti motif but it`s still just as elegant as any other Fendi design. I think it will speak to her rebellious spirit while gently nudging her towards the sophistication of designer replica Hermes Kelly bag.

I just wrote about this bag, I know. So, I don`t need to tell you how much I love it or why I think it`s the best new bag to be released in the past 5 years. Instead, I`ll tell you that this is the perfect bag for my kid sister. Victoria is the best, and she deserves the best….so? I got her the best bag out there right now, the Mulberry Alexa in brown calfskin. I can`t wait to see her open up this present! She`s going to love it! (plus, I think she looks a bit like Alexa Chung)

Mom`s are the hardest to shop for, no? I don`t know what your mothers are like, but mine is the sort of woman who knows exactly what she wants, and then goes about getting it. So, there`s rarely a fashion item that she wants because as soon as she wants it, she`s got it. But, I know for a fact that she doesn`t have a Hermes Kelly bag yet, and although she might not know that she wants it yet, I certainly do (daughters just have a way knowing). So, I got her this charming replica Hermes Kelly bag in vibrant red leather – it`s the perfect Christmas bag, really. And, I`m sure that mom will love it!

Wow, do I feel relieved. The shopping is almost done, just like that! Luckily, none of the people I bought gifts for regularly check this blog…..let`s hope they don`t start in the next two weeks!

What handbags are on your Christmas list?

The Mulberry Alexa: The IT Bag For The IT Girl

Categories:Other Brands

If you aren`t a dedicated follower of fashion, you might not know who Alexa Chung is. If you don`t, you clearly haven`t picked up a copy of Vogue`s Best Dressed 2011 Special Edition, and you need to do some research girl. But if you are one of the few people who`ve been trapped under a rock for the last few years and missed this ‘Rocker Girl’ with street cool, it`s ok, I`m not judging you. But you should know that Mulberry has designed an amazing bag inspired by/named after Alexa and not just anybody gets a bag named after them.

The Mulberry Alexa is, arguably, the most instantly iconic bag released in the last two years. While the industry is moving away from reliance in “It Bags” and towards diversity and expression of individuality, the Alexa has found a way to become the universally coveted amongst fashionistas. If you can afford just one Mulberry ( I have two – one clutch in chocolate and a cross body in yellow….and I`m considering buying a third!) this cross body in brown calfskin (see above) from Purse is the bag for you. Alexa herself has been seen with this bag countless times. Here`s a great image of her rocking it with an absolutely adorable outfit.

The Mulberry line is best described as masculine urban chic – their inspiration was a mix of Alexa Chung`s London-Soho casual cool and their own vintage men`s briefcases – and this androgynous look is perfect for the current fashion scene where standard gender-roles are being bent by both men and women. I love the Alexa. And, I love the way it adds strength to my look. I consider myself to be a strong, independent minded woman, and this bag is perfect for expressing just that.

You can see in the image above how Alexa (wearing her namesake bag in two of those shots) is able to look feminine, casual, and strong at once. That, my friends, is a great modern look and that`s why she`s making best dressed lists just about every week. Mulberry was wise to name this bag after her because both Alexa and her namesake bag are totally NOW. But, I`ll stop preaching this Mulberry Alexa gospel. What do you guys think?

Is the Mulberry Alexa worthy of It Bag status?

Miu Miu Spring Collection: Off The Deep End With Arty Crap Collection

Categories:Other Brands

So, early this week I wrote a piece about how much I`m loving Prada right now, so I thought it would be fitting to look at kid-sister line, Miu Miu, and see what they`ve been up to. Given the fab output from Prada this year, I reasoned that Miu Miu must have some good stuff going on too. Sadly, Miu Miu`s Spring collection is a huge disappointment – especially coming on the heels of such an excellent Prada collection.

Miu Miu Spring: Gaudy and Over-the-Top

The thing that I love about Prada`s Spring line is that it`s vibrant and fun without taking it too far. Great colours in classic styles with a dash of playful adornment – that`s all you need to make exciting bags. Miu Miu`s Spring 2011 line, in contrast, just looks like they`re trying too hard to make something new and unique. And, they`ve followed the current trend of using intensely bright colours, so we get set of overly elaborate, flashy, tasteless bags. The dress and bag above are just gross. Here`s a close up of that bag:

Why would anyone ever make a bag that colour? It hurts my eyes, it`s so bad!

What you can`t really see that well in the above pic are the strange cut-out straps and leather appliqués that are common in these bags (that neon-green bag has a cut-out strap, it`s just a bit blurry in that image). Here`s a better example:

Now, I can admit that it`s a nice idea. I think cut-out designs can be quite beautiful. But, this is just way to ornate for an everyday bag. And what`s with the chrome gloss, pink, and gold? It looks like they`re trying to pack in as many unsettling colours as they possible can. Hey Miuccia, it`s not cutting edge or avant garde to crowd your bags with gaudy colours – it`s just silly.

Ok. So, I`m not super fond of this collection, but I can admit that it`s not all bad. There are a few really nice pieces in here amongst all the clutter. I find that the collection works best when they simplify their tour-de-force, especially in the colour department, and when those appliqués are actually attractive. Here`s an example of a great outfit:

That dress with vibrant red, black and white – it`s really cool. And, the jacket is super cool, and strangely sexy. The only problem is, I don`t think I could actually wear it. In fact, I can`t even imagine anyone I know wearing this outfit. It`s still a little bit too out-there to be worn by most ladies, even if it looks great on the runway.

Here`s a bag I quite like:

So, in theory that appliqué should be just as hideous the rest of the collection, right? I mean, gold glitter and peach? Can that possibly work? I think that it does. You know why? Because it`s placed on a simple, white bag. This simple canvas gives the beautiful phoenix-esque flame design room to breath – it`s not competing with neon green or crimson red. This bag proves that Miuccia Prada still has a great eye for design, she just misses the mark sometimes when she aims for bags that are too arty.

Prada Spring: Prada`s Back Baby!

Categories:Other Brands

In my article Bringing The Fun Back Into Fashion I talked about home much I love the Prada Spring Collection, but for some reason I didn`t dedicate a whole piece to it. I feel like I`ve been talking to everyone I see about how much I`m loving Prada right now. Ever since New York Fashion Week I`ve been raving about their vibrant designs. And while it`s true that bright colors are the mode du jour for all designer handbags in the Spring collection, it is this gals humble opinion that Prada is doing it best. After a few years of subpar designs, I`m happy to say that Prada is back, baby!

The Best of the Spring Collection

A lot of people were more critical of this collection than I, so I`ll just mention a couple of the criticisms laid at this collection before I talk about why I love it. First, there have been claims that the bags are the worst part of Prada`s Spring collection. This is ridiculous. Prada has designed unbelievable shoes and prêt-a-porter for this Spring, so the fact that these bags don`t jump out at you immediately shouldn`t be a surprise. These bags are a part of an overall aesthetic that everything fits into – they`re part of a look, of great outfits, of a way of being. And, they look great in this context.

Secondly, there has been a critique that these bags are canvas when they should be leather. I have two retorts to this. First, I love canvas bags. I think it`s a great material and I make sure to maintain a balance between canvas and leather in my purse collection. Second, we all know that these bags will be translated into leather for retail. This happens every year! The aesthetic is outlined in the Fall fashion week season and this aesthetic is translated to a number of different materials and styles for retail in the spring.

I love these bags because:
1. They are simple, straight-forward, and elegant at once
2. Rather than relying on frills or gimmicks, they use simple, bold colours and classy designs
3. They are instantly recognizable
4. They perfectly blend classic designs with irreverent fun

So, now that the talking is out of the way, let`s look at the bags!

Up above you can see four examples of bags from the collection. I really like them all (though I don`t think they`re my favorites in the collection per se, just a great cross section and they`re great examples of a bunch of the things going on in this collection. You can see the bold colours, the stripes, and the cute handles and details.

This is one of my favs. I love the solid blue – and look at how well it matches the shoes! Love it!

And, this simple little bag. I love the contrast of the green top flap with black main bag. And, is this not textured leather? Some bloggers (who shall remain nameless) seem to claiming that there`s no leather in this collection!

Lastly, if you checked out the title image for this post you would have seen the lovely striped clutches with vibrant colours (against black) that are really making themselves seen. Check out how beautiful they look in contrast to the white dresses with elaborate prints. SOOOOOOOOO nice!

Prada Resort Bags

And, I couldn`t talk Prada without quickly mentioning these Prada resort handbags with exotically accented linen and straw. These are super elegant, sophisticated bags with a lightness that will be just perfect come summer. Have you seen any bags that look like these? Prada, you are on fire!

This review was submitted by Mademoizee:

“I bought the bag from fabaaa and was quite skeptical at first. I looked at the bag on the mulberry site to make sure they were similar and it was to the latter. I even went into the mulberry store haha . Dealing with fabaaa was easy and straightfoward. I paid by paypal and every email was answered within a day. I received the bag in exactly 6 days which is quick for the uk. The bag itself is gorgeousssssssss the leather is soooo soft smells absolutely divine. Took the bag to a barbeque last weekend and no one could tell it was a replica including a friend who is really good with her designers. All in all I would definitely buy from fabaaa again .this was definitely a worthwhile experience”
