Celebrity Wrap Up: Designers to Watch

Happy first day of Spring y’all. What’s better than celebrating this not-so-hot weather with a few new handbag designers for us to be more aware of?

Finding our place in the fashion world is essential to have your own style and a unique look, and that also applies to accessories. We’re all pretty much aware of handbag designers like Givenchy, Celine, Tory Burch, Valentino and many others that creates beautiful bags for us to strut around town.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all of those designers! But I think it’s time for us to get to know a few other designers that will bring a fresh new look to the Spring 2013 Season!!

marysolAdelaide Tote by Mar Y Sol $102.00

I love this handbag because it screams “eco-friendly gone boho”! The Adelaide tote is handmade using sustainable materials, with subtle differences in details making each and every bag unique. It has a detailed wooden bead closure that gives that ‘beachy’ feel to it. Perfect for a day at the beach or a froyo pick me up.


Isabella Tote by Annabel Ingall $398.00

It’s Spring time, and we’re all a little crazy towards neon colors. If you fall under the neon-lover category, this bag is idealistic for you. The Isabella Tote has gold studs as details and has an unlined interior. With it’s two straps, it can be either over the shoulder bag or used as a tote. So if you’re not afraid to shine bright like a diamond, get the Isabella Tote.


Geometric Clutch by Santi $260.00

This clutch is the cutest thing ever. It’s beaded geometric pattern gives the bag a graphic pop, and who no one will go unnoticed with this bag! It’s the most wanted Spring accessory to have around. It’s has a small interior pocket, magnetic flap and it’s size is perfect for gloss, phone and credit card holder. There is also a strap that can be used whenever wanted.

Watch out for these three amazing handbag designers. Their bags are beautifully crafted and desirable. Don’t be afraid of rocking your style, mix and matching patterns and colors whenever shopping for bags!
