Louis Vuitton Pochette W

Just launched on 1 January, 2014, this pochette by Louis Vuitton is the perfect way to start the new year! Retailing at $1,000USD, this stunning pochette is an extension of the W bag, which has been a recent hit among Vuitton collectors and handbag enthusiasts.

The W tote retails for over $4,000 and has two options in most styles--the PM or the GM. For the price point and the practicality, I highly recommend this piece for your accessories collection.

With similar design to its bigger brother, the W tote, this style has Chocolate Veau Cachemire calfskin and monogram canvas.

W interior

The interior is practical and spacious for a pochette. Its calf leather lining includes six card slots and a pouch inside, perfect for receipts and cash. The pochette easily turns into a wallet, and is large enough to fit an iPad mini inside the main compartment. It can easily fit an iPhone inside. I would only recommend fitting one device inside as to not stretch the pochette.

W side view

As you can see from the side, even when filled with an iPad Mini, credit cards, tissues, cash, and receipts, it is comfortable and not overly stuffed. It is quite the chic and practical accessory, with a loop to carry it on the hand. The W Pochette measures at 10.6" x 7.1". It is perfect for running errands and also for a night out with friends!

Getting this W Pochette was a great start to the new year! I've already used it a bunch of times for both errands and a night out in Manhattan with a best girlfriend of mine. I must add that it particularly came in hand whenever I had to carry two Starbucks lattes out of the store along with a hot pretzel--the pochette just dangled freely from my wrist, making the task so simple. I'm not a clutch kind of gal, but this pochette converted me! I'm usually one to go for big bags and totes, but I've been trying to downsize. And the W Pochette is my favorite new small accessory!

BAO BAO by Issey Miyake

BAO BAO by Issey Miyake

Have you seen one of these eclectic bags on the streets? You're looking at none other than Issey Miyake's newest creation--or piece of art, I'd say. Touted as "a bag you can feel", the BAOBAO handbag and accessories collection is not only stylish but also a conversation starter.

Bao Bao by Issey Miyake

Sold at speciality locations like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and at Issey Miyake boutiques, BAO BAO bags are hotter than ever. I received a pochette for a holiday gift, and it's super stylish and versatile, especially for day or evening events. What's really cool about all BAO BAO bags is that they can fold differently and therefore create different shapes due to what is inside of them. Miyake's outlook on the BAO BAO collection is that they become "shapes made by chance". It is the ideal bag for contemporary, busy lifestyles. They are available in a multitude of colors and in different shapes and sizes.

I can definitely attest to its light and flexible nature. The pochette is small but still large enough to fit your phone, wallet and other small essentials. There's also a shoulder strap, so the bag can be worn cross-body. The BAO BAO pieces are truly a dynamic addition to any collection.

What do you think of Issey Miyake's newest line?
