I think I’m in love. How could I not be? Just look at this gorgeous, vibrant blue suede chain strap bag by Choies! I’ve always been a fan of mixing blue and gold together; it’s such a luxe-looking color combo, don’t you agree? I love the minimalistic design and the clean lines, it reminds me of a suede bag I’ve seen at ZARA once, only ZARA’s was black and blue is so much better obviously. Get this (real suede) baby for $106.67 before it’s too late (-20% if you use the promo cove above in time!). And if you feel like it, get the black and pink version as well.

I don’t know that I would advocate purchasing a huge neon green bag but a small brightly colored purse is something I can definitely get behind. You may initially shy away from wearing a turquoise or hot pink handbag, but trust me when I say that it will quickly become almost like a neutral in your closet. There to jazz up any subdued outfit or pair of jeans. I love Marc Jacobs‘ The Single Quilted bag for this purpose because it comes in super fun colors but in a very classic shape. I particularly like the hot pink color (as seen on Whitney Port below) but the purple would also be great. Now, I’ll be right here when you feel like buying me an early birthday present.

UPDATE (03/30/2013): Found another great MJ Single bag alternative by Lulu for under $30! Yay! This bag comes also in coral or white.

ModCloth Love is a Bag-lefield Bag

ModCloth‘s Love is a Bag-lefield bag (don’t they come up with the cutest product names?) is what we’re calling an MJ meets Chanel love-child. The shape of the bag and the studs is fairly identical to Whitney’s MJ above, but the chain/leather strap is very Chanel-esque. I love this bag. For $43.99, I kinda feel like everyone should pick this one up. The hot pink works especially well during summer months and I say splurge on a great black bag; skimp on the brightly colored, fun one!

Despite writing this blog for more than 4 years and having an extensive knowledge about where to find the best designer look-a-likes, I firmly believe that there a few designer items out there worth purchasing. For me a few of those things would include a Burberry trench coat, a pair of classic Christian Louboutin pumps and a Prada bag. I recently had the chance to snag this beautiful Prada bag below at 30% off, but I chickened out of buying last minute and now – of course – I totally regret it. Well, maybe next time.

High Fashion 4285 Top Handle Satchel Bag

I don’t know what it is about orange designer bags, but they look extra luxe to me if they are dyed in this bright color (think orange Givenchy Antigona or orange Hermès Birkin). Prada’s Saffiano Lux also comes in this amazing standout colorls and if you want an orange statement bag for a non-designer price, this satchel by High Fashion is yet another great Prada alternative.

If you’re looking for some fashion inspiration for the upcoming Spring and want to see a beautifully designed lookbook, then you have to check out Ted Baker‘s S/S 2013 collection. The lookbook is absolutely amazing to look at and the clothes shown there are just as lustworthy. Pastels, florals, brights and delicate tailoring – these seem to be Ted Baker’s key themes for the S/S 2013 collection.
