Fashion Bag


The Power of Gold--
A child finds a shiny rock in a creek, thousands of years ago, and the human race is introduced to gold for the first time. Gold's early uses were no doubt ornamental, and its brilliance and permanence (it neither corrodes nor tarnishes) linked it to deities and royalty in early civilizations. Gold has always been powerful stuff. The earliest history of human interaction with gold is long lost to us, but its association with the gods, with immortality, and with wealth itself are common to many cultures throughout the world.
I have often read about bags made of gold in magazines but have never seen any as extraordinary as the vintage gold bag above in white gold mesh. The intricate weaving is exquisite and obviously took a lot of labor and love to create. It's so unusual to find a gold purse of this shape and design not to mention its large size-- 7" long, 6" w at the bottom and 4" at the top, 2 1/4" deep. The white gold minaudiere/purse is made of 18kt gold with a mirror on the interior; the chain is removable to use as clutch. I envision Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet or one of the other Oscar nominees with it-- surely whoever carries this gold bag will win the ultimate Golden Statue-- the Oscar! And if you're looking for that wildly lavish gift of luxury, this is it. This is a bag worthy of a Queen. Retail is $85,000 but for Bag Snob readers they will discount it to $35,000 (remember the price of gold only goes up so this is a wise investment)! Call House of Kahn Estate Jewelers for more information.

Evening Bags
Need an evening bag? You might like this one from Marks and Spencer's Autograph Collection. I ordered it earlier in November, but sadly had to return it.
At £45 it really is a beautiful long evening bag and I do recommend it to you as it is finely made. But be warned the colour is an expensive looking khaki taupe and is not as yellow rich a gold as it appears at first sight in the photograph. But my loss may be your gain, as many of the sludgy khaki shades of clothes this winter will tone well with this particular evening bag.
If you would like a more expensive satin evening bag, try the V.B.H satin clutch bag at £485.00, or perhaps a Glorinha Paranagua satin clutch bag with crystal tassel and crystal button closing at £170.00. Both are available from Browns of Molton Street, London.One of the best places to buy from a wide selection of cute evening bags is Monsoon and Accessorize where you can make a personal selection from a good affordable price range. Their site shows all the same evening bags available at their high street shops.

Tan and red bags are out in force this year as you can see from this 100% Tan Leather Underarm Bag shown left and easy to purchase from It has toggle detail, front pockets and zip fastening at £34.99. Size is 24 x 12 x 9cm, Product number 944-049-X36.
You could also check out the Floto bags on my Floto webpage review here. Floto sell a range of capacious leather bags and travel luggage that is made
in Italy. Floto colours include a wonderful red.

Luella Peony patent leather clutch
Pink, purple and patent - you probably don't even need me to tell you this is Luella to be sold on this gorgeous leather clutch (although would I be right in guessing the Luella part will probably seal the deal?)
Perfect for adding a jolt of cherry blossom colour into your spring looks, this clutch is a great size for day or evening and the heart charm adds that final romantic touch. We totally heart Luella and we definitely heart this purse. It's £450 from Net-a-Porter.
Fendi keep finding themselves on the end of my weekly Yay or Nay rants (although not for a while) and I must admit I do feel slightly bad about that. But seriously guys, when you're coming up with multi-coloured python (as seen pictured above) and fringed zebra print, you're automatically creating a fence whereby people are going to decide on which side they sit.
And once more we are here, choosing sides. Python is an 'exotic skin' which certainly gets luxury bag devotees excited. So do you like how this multi-coloured python baguette would add a rainbow of vibrant colour into your life or would you prefer to keep it far, far away? Vote in our poll below.
