Designer Bags from A to Z
Posts Tagged ‘Tassels’

I consider myself a girly girl. I like lace, ruffles, and sparkles.  This bag is nothing like that but I still love it. The one thing that caught my eyes is the asymmetrical flap pocket. I’m not sure how practical it is but it definitely sets apart this bag from any other hobo bag out there.  I also love how the tassel complement the bag, it makes all the edges on the bag look somewhat softer.

This bag gives out an edgy vibe and would look great with a great pair of knee high boots.  From Saks Fifth Avenue for $ 1,250.  Check out Derek Lam’s website for more colors and selections!




Rebecca-Minkoff-Zip-MABI’m a big fan of Rebecca Minkoff’s Morning After Mini bag.  If my girl friends had not stopped me, I would’ve gotten one in every color.  I love the classic shape and style of the Morning After Mini, and the size is just right for me.  For the 2009 Fall line, Rebecca updated the Morning After bag with additional zippers.  I love how the additional zippers add some edginess and a tough look to the bag without changing its classic “Morning After” look.  The long tassels are also very appropriate for the zippered look.

Since studs, zippers and chains are hot this season, many designers have gone overboard with them. I’ve seen bags that are literally covered in zippers so that it’s not even funny anymore. Just because zippers are in, it doesn’t mean that you can just cover your bags with them and call it fashionable.  Take a clue from Rebecca Minkoff for incorporating the trend tastefully.

Buy from Saks Fifth Avenue for $550

botkier-taylor-satchelMany Botkier fans have asked me about the Botkier Taylor from the Fall 2009 collection.  As you might already know, the Botkier Fall 2009 collection is very rocker chic.  The Taylor bags bring the rocker chic flavor through their one-of-a-kind tassels design. I finally have the following information about the bags that I would love to share with all of you.
