With only five of these hideous looking bags available in the world, I wondered, "who would be willing to give up their dough for this one?" Who would've thought that Beyonce, of all people, would have her eyes on this handbag collage? It looks like it should be in a glass case in a museum somewhere!
Beyonce, you don't need to tell anyone you have this bag... we already knew you could afford to buy it!

Looks like a dermatologist-turned designer came up with the idea of injecting botox into the skins of his collection of Zagliani python and alligator handbags, making them feel "supple". The designer, Mauro Orietti-Carella, describes touching the bags as "a very private, sensual experience". Remember, this is a bag we're talking about, not a person!
It seems like a costly process for a handbag; I don't know too many people who can afford botox on themselves! But then, on the other hand, the bag's gotta be pretty expensive to begin with if you're considering having it botoxed.
Even an "old bag" can be beautiful again!
Read the full story here.
The Vavoom Gold Heat Weekender Bag has been created to support a very worthy cause: the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric Aids Foundation. Designed by the fashion team at Marie Claire and donated by Vavoom, the bag sells for $35, and 100% of the proceeds go towards helping children with HIV and AIDS. Although the bag is currently sold out, requests for the bag are still in high demand.

While I like what this partnership stands for, I'm just wondering if any teachers will be able to purchase this bag for themselves. Why create a bag with inspiration for its design being drawn from a teacher and slap a $400 price tag on it so they won't be able to purchase one for themselves? The bag offers the functionality that would appeal to a teacher-- it's made of natural Italian leather and lined in cotton twill, and its expandable interior allows room for all the papers and supplies that teachers tend to carry. This bag is a teaser! Sometimes when you charge less, you end up selling more!

If you're dressing up for a major event like the Emmy's, I believe that accessories are part of the total package-- especially a handbag or clutch. Some of the women were jeweled down, but the bag was missing!!! It almost looks like you forgot your bag when you don't have one!
Even Heidi Klum wasn't wearing one-- although she was toting her man, Seal. Looks like Seal could've been carrying a man-bag in his hand, though.Next time you need a bag, CALL ME!!!

How about finishing this ensemble off with a cute bangle?
I could go on and on!

Out of all of the fashion shows that have taken place so far, Oscar de la Renta's show stands out for me. I love his new spring collection-- especially the absolutely beautiful, flowing, printed dresses!
His designs are so inspiring... looking forward to displaying my own spring handbag designs soon!
You will love Oscar de la Renta's Runway Show!

On one particular day when I was in college, my girlfriend and I spent the entire afternoon digging in her closet, both on a mission to find the right outfits to wear to a party that evening. We both showed up at the party wearing two-piece shorts outfits, with fake patent leather stilletto-style pumps. The fashionistas had arrived!!! Clutch bags were my bag of choice back then. I remember carrying a taupe foldover clutch , similar to this one!Actually, not nearly as cute as this Donald Pliner Leopard Print Calf Foldover Clutch! Same style, though. All you need is a matching pair of pumps with this one, and it's on!
Having the fashion trends of the past come back into my life again brings back some really great memories!

On the show was a segment about a website called Second Life, a phenomenon that people from all over the globe are taking part in-- OVER 9 MILLION to be exact! Second Life is a 3-D virtual world built and owned by its "residents", meaning real people. In this virtual world, there are no limits-- you can be or do anything you desire!
What I found most fascinating about this whole "Second Life" thing is that people are logging on to this site and using it as a means for buying and selling their goods and services with other "residents". Where have I been hiding? I never qualified a virtual world as a marketplace. As a mother of two boys, I thought I knew quite a bit about video technology and virtual games. I even get video magazines delivered to my home for my eldest son.
What I've come to realize is that even in our own world, the options are becoming endless when it comes to making a business transaction. Whether you like this whole virtual concept or not, you must admit that this whole "Second Life" thing is quite clever!
