A must have for the spring/summer...

... are Christian Louboutin wedges! The rainbow-like colors just scream "summer". And they are comfortable, too!

Handbags: The Power of the Purse

Handbags: The Power of the Purse by Anna Johnsson is a must have for the designer bag collectors. In the book you can find gorgeous seducing pictures of handbags plus some interesting facts about how they are made, when and why. Highly recommend!

Chanel Coco Cabas

One of the "It" bags this year seems to be Chanel's Coco Cabas. The bag comes in different sizes, colors and materials. All of it's sizes are quite large, so even if you ask for a Baby Cabas, which is a small Cabas, you will still get a big handbag.

Coach handbags

Coach handbags seem to be very popular these days. Everyone from kids to adults are carrying them these days. Teenagers are saving up lunch money to be able to get a Coach purse!

These bags come in many different styles and colors. The prices vary a great deal also, which is good, because not everyone wants to splurge a large sum of money on a handbag.

The hottest Coach bag this season seems to be the Carly (pictured above). Of course, it also comes in a variety of colors and materials. Black, brown, leather, canvas - choose what suits you most. The style is very classic, simple and elegant. AND it has all the Coach signature features.

Coach doesn't just make handbags. They make shoes and other accessories such as charms. Aren't these ballet flats adorable?

Chloé shoes to match those Chloé bags?

I decided to continue the Chloé topic and move on to the shoes.
So, if you are a lucky owner of Chloé bags, you might want to match those with a gorgeous pair of Chloé shoes. Here are a few pairs of shoes that I think are absolutely fabulous!

These gorgeous silver flats would, of course, look great with a silver Paddington. Ah, what the heck, they would look great with anything, really. Throw on a simple top, dark blue jeans and these flats and you will look as if you just stepped out of a fashion magazine.
Ah, wouldn't these boots look absolutely stunning with a classic black Paddington? Black tights and a jumper dress? Or skinny jeans and a simple cashmere sweater? Mmm...

And if you are daring enough you can try to pull of the Kate-Moss-Cat-Deeley-Sienna-Miller-Kimberley-Steward-Olson-twins look with these high Mary Janes. These wedges are absolutely gorgeous and I envy people who wear those. Unfortunately, this type of shoes doesn't look good on me.

Paddingtons - in or out?

The Chloé Paddington bag has been in the top list of designer handbags for quite a while now. Although, now I am starting to wonder, is it slowly loosing it's charm? As I see it, Balenciaga Motorcycle bags and Paddingtons are sort of like competitors. They are approximately of the same size and can be used in similar situations. And, of course, both bags come in all sorts of colors! Just makes you want to get more and more. However, are these bags slowly fading away? Or maybe one is way ahead the other? The way I see it is that, yes, these bags are not as "hot" as they were a year or so ago, but I think they are becoming a classic. Something that will always be admired and appreciated by fashion/handbag/luxury "lovers".
I love the Paddington, no matter what other people think. It is so elegant and gorgeous. It is also very practical, can hold quite a lot. For some people the weight can be a problem, but you get used to it. And it's always good with a little bit of a workout along the way.
