Bombshell Bags from VOGUE Ads, March 2013


Bombshell Bags from VOGUE Ads, March 2013

Beyonce Vogue

In the March 2013 of American VOGUE (where Beyonce graces the cover), there are some seriously hot handbags being advertised. I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you!

Prada bag

Let's start off with this gorgeous Prada. Reminiscent of the Vuitton S/S 2012 Suship Speedy North/South, this handbag is super hot for the spring and summer. Its shape is similar to its sister bags, the Prada Saffiano Lux Tote.

Marc Jacobs

Marc knows how to create a stunner! With a simple white ensemble, this Marc Jacobs"Hairy Prisoners" tote in Domino will look drop-dead gorgeous. Inspired by 60s Op-Artist Briget Riley, the striped tote is lined in leather and has antique silver hardware. Available at for $2,295US.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors is ushering in spring with this absolutely stunning Large Miranda Crackled Leather Tote. The structured shape and the  hanging leather accents make this bag a definite conversation piece. It's additionally available in yellow and brown. Available for sale at for $1,195US.


Such a beautiful nude hue! Belstaff is promoting this exotic Nottingham tote for spring/summer 2013. It's very understated and chic. I can picture this bag used for a beautiful day out on the town or out for cocktails at a cafe by the water. Just a beautiful piece!


Hugo Boss impresses with this (on right) beautiful brown leather tote for spring/summer 2013. It looks to be a comfortable yet sleek keep-all tote. This bag will definitely work the whole way through summer into the fall.


Salvatore Ferragamo makes a statement with this Sofia bag in Ash for spring/summer 2013. The studs make it so much more fun and undeniably a statement piece. The neutral color makes the bag essentially season-less. I can picture this bag as a cross-body when it's snowing for a winter white stunner or as a white-hot summer piece. You can really go any way with this handbag.


Last but not least is this jaw-droppingingly beautiful green python bag from Tod's. This bag is meant to be a statement piece as it exudes elegance and exclusivity. Its pop of color is certain to complete a subtle, effortless look.


Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013


Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013

Look at these beautiful bags! Some of the most iconic trends of this upcoming Spring 2013 season are jacquard and woven prints and textures.

The classic Fendi Peekaboo bag is reinvented in a woven style, available in orange and navy. Completely iconic, this slouchy bag is beautiful and fresh for the spring (but can definitely take you through the fall)! Definitely a head-turner in either color.


Louis Vuitton put out a bright, classy yet funky line of handbags and accessories. They revamped their Damier in a variety of bag styles--mostly smaller top-handle bags that are variations on the Speedy, some clutches, and small square luggage-style purses. The pieces in the cognac brown are my favorite; with the perfect outfit (this being my ultimate favorite), it is appears to be a delicate piece with a dose of practicality, too. It's certainly big enough for an iPad, magazines and your extra essentials.

Marc Jacobs additionally contributed to this spring trend with his Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Marc'd & Check'd Printed Satchel. This particular style also comes in a larger size, if the Mini isn't your cup of tea. Other pieces in his SS13 collection are vaguely reminiscent of his work in his Marc Jacobs line and also in Louis Vuitton.

These are just a few examples of this skyrocketing spring trend. See any other designers invoking this trend? Post it below!
