Need an “It” Bag?

It’s been a while since I have posted anything.  I have had a serious lack of motivation lately, life has been busy.  Hopefully things will slow down a bit and I get back to focusing on my blog.

For those looking for a summer “it” bag, Kate Spade thinks she has it with her Bixby Collection.  The Bixby Collection has wood accents and mod cloth lining.  Wood accents are what will be popular this summer.  Several purse lines are using wood accents for the summer.

Here’s a glimpse in to Spade’s Bixby Collection, enjoy!

This collection was inspired by Big Sur’s Bixby Creek Bridge which is located on the California Coastline.

You have 2 options for the Bixby collection: the clutch or the bag.  I am crushing hard on the clutch ♥.

The Bixby Clutch comes in 3 colors, black,cream and aqua.  The clutch has a wood frame, bauble closure and interior zipped pocket. This clutch will run you $325. If you are like me and think the lining of your purse is just as important as the purse; you’ll be happy to know that the lining is custom woven!

Aqua Bixby Clutch

The Bixby bag is just like the clutch with the wooden frame, bauble closure and interior zipped pocket.  The bag also comes with double slide pockets on the interior.  The bag is available in pollen, fallow, aqua, and black.  This bag costs $495.

And then there is Kate


Here are some of her new arrivals.  I must admit, I had to stop drooling long enough to type this up.  There are too many cute purses, it was hard to only pick a few for this post.  All new arrivals can be found here.

Here’s the quick run down of my faves:

1 –  This one is cotton satchel with a great floral pattern, perfect for Spring! Costs $295.


2 – Kate Spade’s signature nylon with a new twist.  The black and white stripes and the asymmetrical flower makes me love the Nylon Flower Tate for $225.


3 – Only Kate Spade makes dungarees look good.  This purse has an asymmetrical bow, as well.  I like the look, it looks like this purse can handle lots of wear and tear and is still cute. The Dungarees Emily purse will run you $295.


4 – This purse is like 2 purses in 1!  The Cobble Hill Leslie costs $425 so at least you can wear the purse 2 different ways 🙂

5 – Last but not least is the Head in the Sand Melinda for $425.  This bag reminds me a little bit of the Ostrich Prada bag, for a fraction of the cost.  If I ever wear Ostrich, it will be from Kate Spade.
