Daily Covet: Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag

Here is the perfect bag for spring. The bucket bag has made a comeback and it seems I’m not the only one that would like to get my hands on this totally GORGE bag.

The Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag is wait listed. Imagine! Like it’s Hermès or something.

Well, it’s true and to be honest, I’d rather have this coated leather bucket bag than a Birken any day.

Both the black and tan versions have detachable wallets, which is obviously so convenient.

And both the black and tan versions have completely covetable interiors. I’m not sure if they are the same color, but it looks like one might be crimson while the other is more of a raspberry color.

It’s a good thing these are wait listed. It would take me a long time to figure out which one I want more!

Daily Covet: Céline Box Bag

A Céline box bag.

What better bag than this structured, but unfussy, handbag in too many awesome colors to count?

I love the simplicity and the elegance of Céline’s simple crossbody bag. I also love that the shoulder strap can be tucked in so you have a dual-duty clutch.

The biggest problem (besides the hefty $2800 price tag) is how do you choose just one?

Daily Covet: Deco Bling

It’s only serendipitous that one day I was on this impromptu web search for Art Deco-style rings… and the next day, Refinery29 sent me an update called, “Vintage Engagement Rings For the Unconventional Bride” which featured designs from each era from the 1714 to 1950.

As always, my absolute favorite era for design and decor was the age of Art Deco.

While I’m no soon-to-be bride, I love to look at diamonds in all sorts of settings. So for today, here’s a fabulous roundup of gorgeous Deco styles to wear top to bottom.

See something you like? Shop for it on my polyvore.com page, and let me know which one is your absolute fave. I know what mine is: the $38,000 ruby, diamond and platinum ring!


Daily Covet: Chloe Drew Calf Hair Shoulder Bag

I’ve always been a fan of CHLOÉ handbags (who isn’t?) but have only had the pleasure of admiring them from afar. In this case, I’m getting up close and personal – but only virtually.

The truth is, anything in leopard-print calf hair goes straight to the top of my “If I only had this” list!

And this little CHLOÉ bag with a big price tag is there… maybe twice, I love it so much!

From cargo pants to a little black dress, this could be one of the most versatile bags around. At that price, it’d better be!

Daily Covet: Chloé vs. Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.

I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.

This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.


This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!


Tranparency is Essential

Handbags you can see through aren’t new to the handbag scene by any means.  But the vintage ones and the brand new models alike get better and better all the time.

While this amazing Louis Vuitton shopper is one of my faves (who can resist tortoise chain link handles?), these other amazing bags are absolutely drool-worthy too!

Daily Covet: Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote

Friends and fashionistas, my apologies for the spotty posting over the last year.

A third baby and a new post at a boutique public relations firm has kept me from doing what I really love to do most often, which is BUY STUFF, of course.

But I had to make time for this amazing Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote. I am truly in love with all things “totable” as my young family is constantly on the go.

From business trips to playdates, I am always on the hunt for fabulous totes that make me look like I put some effort (even if I didn’t) into what I am wearing… and toting.  This makes my skinny white jeans, t-shirts and Chuck Cons super chic in an instant!
