Riva Ball Bag from Perrin Paris

I saw this over at the Bag Snob and I did a double take because I’ve never seen a bag design quite like it.

They call this the Lady Gaga of handbags…but I don’t think it’s quite “there” yet. The design does stand-out. But more than anything, I think it stands out in a good way and not in a shocking way. Maybe it’s because the bag comes in a neutral shade, which somehow d

I admire this bag casual style. The color combination is also one that’s so pleasing to the eyes — in beautiful blue, white and neutral khaki.

Metallics are still making their last hurrah this season but some styles just don’t really cut the grade for me. Some things just don’t look good shiny, I suppose.

Longchamp ‘Victoire’ Wool Shopper

Would the bag look better without the logo applique? I think that it’s what sets it apart from an ordinary bag. It’s nicely done. The selection also comes in grey but this one in camel tone appears more stylish.

Eve Glitter Studs Tote, Violet

Is metallic still in season? This is also from one of Marc Jacobs’ newest collections and I’m loving the nice, deep, dark purple jewel tone to it. The crinkles on the leather is a nice touch. It really looks like precious gems coming alive in the form of this purse.

Gucci Hysteria Hobo Bag

I can’t imagine this is a Gucci bag. For one thing, the hardware logo is different. For another thing, the shiny patent leather, while rich in color, it’s just a bit tacky.

Botkier Kika Large Satchel

I understand ribbons or bows are back in style. While I’d normally stay away from that trend because I’m not nine years old anymore, I think differently when it comes to this bag from Botkier.

Without the bow and maybe the locket, too, the bag will definitely look all plain and business-like. And that’s just boring, no style at all.

Be and D Guinevere Clutch

Bows are back in season. Bows on a bag? That’s not something I’m fond of but when designed inconspicuously, then maybe I’ll give it a second look, such a this clutch from Be and D.  Bow designs can be too overpowering, too attention grabbing, too cutesy. It helps that the bag is in an almost brown shade (it’s actually deep purple) that it can easily blend in with whatever I’m wearing.

A shopping bag like this does promote an air of luxury, but that is what shopping in style is all about. If you have the money to spend, why not? The bag is made from python-print microfiber.
