Price increase

Luxury designer handbags already do have pretty high prices, but it somehow that is not enough. The rumor is going around that Louis Vuitton and Chanel are increasing prices on some of their products starting February 1st. Which is, of course, tomorrow. I don't know the exact numbers, but from what I've hear LV can increase prices by up to 15% and Chanel by 25%. Oh well, another thing we bag-maniacs just have to deal with.

Furla Handbags

Recently I discovered Furla handbags. Oh my, they are b-e-a-utiful! They look very luxurious (to me, anyways) but don't have the price tags of the high-end designer handbags. For example, this gorgeous Greta in Nuvola Croco is just $266 (on sale), but it looks almost as good as any Birkin bag. Okay, I might be over exaggerating but you get the point, don't you? So, for those of you who want the feel of the high-end designer bag, but can't afford to spend $1000 on a purse, Furla handbags might just be a way out!

If you are in the US, you can buy Furla online at www.furlausa.com.

Louis Vuitton - Pomme d'Amour

Louis Vuitton has released a new color of the Vernis leather. It's called Pomme d'Amour, which can be translated as the "love apple". The color is a gorgeous red with a hint of pink.

Lanvin - Ballet flats and boots

Lanvin ballet flats and boots seem to be quite popular these days. Even though the flats were last years collection they are still the most sought out item. And why wouldn't they be? They are comfortable, they are colorful, they are absolutely gorgeous! The boots are also pretty great, I just love the simple but stylish look. And since they are flat - they are also very comfortable!

Look for Lanvins at

What's Inside Your Bag?

Handbags are definitely a way to make a fashion statement. It's also a way to make your outfit look fantastic. But then... if to really think about it - handbags are just a practicality. It's something to carry your things around in. The interesting thing, though, is that we never (or almost never) see what people are carrying in their bags. Unless you have x-ray vision or something. That is why I thought that this "Inside My Bag" blog is just simply great. You can see lots of pictures of what's inside basically random people's handbags. It's also a great way to see how much you can fit in this or that bag. So, feel free to check it out. I think the blog's author is doing a great job!

Jessica Simpson's addiction to Louis Vuitton

There is probably no other celebrity that is as crazy about Louis Vuitton as Jessica Simpson is. She has everything from small purses to large travel-size bags and luggage. She also seems to really love her Monogram Speedy, which she has had for quite a while but is still seen carrying it rather often. So here is a small compilation of pictures of Jessica and some of her Louis Vuitton bags.

Cameron Diaz Style

Cameron Diaz is beautiful, smart and funny. What else can a girl want? She also has a very good sense of style (or a really good stylist!). On the picture below you can see her with the new Balenciaga Work bag with giant hardware. Throw on a pair of skinny jeans, bright pumps and a simple top - and there you are going a la Cameron style. Simple and yet so beautiful.

Cameron also seems to like short dresses. Just recently she showed up at Ellen DeGeneres show wearing a fabulous short dress and killer hills. I guess when you have such gorgeous legs all you can do is show them off!

And even when it's cold outside and she has to cover herself up a little to keep worm, she manages to throw on things that make again a simple and yet so stylish outfit.

And, of course, what does every girl need to complete her simple and stylish outfit? A pretty handbag! Here you see Cameron sporting a gorgeous handbag by Jimmy Choo.

To finish this post I must mention that there are rumors going around that Cameron and Justin Timberlake broke up. Don't know if it is the truth and whether the rumor has been confirmed, but I know I loved them as a couple. They were great together. However, no matter what happens, I hope they are happy.

Designer inspired handbags

There are many fakes out there (that are illegal and support terrorism and what not), but there are also a lot of absolutely legal handbags that are designer inspired. These can also be pretty expensive themselves as they can be of really high quality. Besso, for instance, makes really nice motorcycle bags inspired by Balenciaga. Lush makes quite nice handbags with padlocks inspired by Chloe Paddington bags. But when I saw this handbag, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Sorry, I mean I didn't know whether it was a Balenciaga or Paddington inspired. I'm speechless!

Louis Vuitton - Sophie

From what I've heard Louis Vuitton has released this gorgeous bag named Sophie to LV boutiques in Hawaii and Japan. There are rumors that this bag will be released in US and hopefully in Europe later on this year (supposedly, February). Haven't heard anything about Japan, but in Hawaii the bag is rather limited, so if you want one you will most likely have to put yourself down on the waiting list. The price of the bag is approximately $425. I haven't seen a bag as gorgeous as this one for quite some time. It was very clever of Louis Vuitton to put the leather strap together with the chain one. It just looks so fabulous!
