Coach Straw Picnic BasketAhh how I love Coach. I do realize that this is the Purse Blog but why not hit the road less traveled every once in a while and feature something totally different and out of the ordinary. Let me place a few thoughts into your head. Spring, flowers, green grass, puppies, butterflies, sunshine, and that one special day that is coming up in your life where you want your significant other to plan the perfect picnic for you. Whether its on the beach, in a park, by the mountains, what better way to set a mood than with a picnic. Now women, you really need to slyly pass this post along to your men to teach that what is is we crave and love…. sigh. Anyhow, back on track. Like I said, picnics are romantic and desired by most if not all women.

Coach to the rescue. They’ve come out with their spanking new Coach Straw Picnic Basket. With their neverending innovative ideas, Coach has designed the ultimate picnic basket. It’s jam packed with goodies like luxurious bamboo-handled flatware, fine white and Scribble patterned china, Coach leather napkin rings, tumbler glasses, coffee cups and Scribble design saucers, and even a wine opener. Wow! What a huge basket(2 (L) x 16 1/2 (W) x 10 (H)) filled with only the best! Here is where we run into a slight problem. It of course, like all other luxury goods, is going to cost ya’ some bling. $1,998 to be exact.

And again, we are all back to day dreaming about that perfect picnic with that perfect man with that perfect day with that perfect new Basket.

Choco Choco House Chocolate Purses

The title somewhat says it all. Purses made out of chocolate. I doubt the force of desirable seduction has ever been as intense as on that one, Luke. Aliya at Choco Choco House does a great job with her petite choco treasures, two thumbs up for the fantastic idea and treats that’ll make many many tum tums happy. :-D

Gucci Wine Carrier

Gucci Wine CarrierAs summer slowly approaches, it is time for pool parties, dinner parties, yacht rides, etc. I know I have always been a wine giver, hey, it’s simple, but the presentation is always lacking. Some of these dinner parties are more like royal parties, and although the
wine I give is very nice, I always feel like something is missing. I have figured it out. It’s the way I give the wine, so boring and dull.
Gucci has the perfect solution. For this summer Gucci is featuring a two-bottle wine/champagne carrier with an inside pocket which can hold an opener and your card. The carrier features their famous natural canvas exterior with beige/ebony GG plus interior, dark brown leather trim, and green/red/green signature web on the outside and handles. Each compartment is about 4.3 x 11.3 x 7.8 inches. This is where my father would chime in how impractical a purchase like this would be, but for special occasions — why not? For $290 at Gucci’s site, the carrier is available to accentuate your bottled gift.

Marc Jacobs Soft Calf Cosmetics Pouch

Marc Jacobs Collection Soft Calf Cosmetics PouchI love my makeup. I do not use it hardly ever, but I love it. Whenever I go to the mall I always head into Sephora or Nieman Marcus to buy makeup, which I do not need or use. Prices on makeup are ridiculous. Funny how I can say makeup prices are ridiculous when I am telling you day after day about multiple exorbitantly pricey handbags. But here is where I’m stuck in a sticky situation. When I love both makeup and bags, am I willing to spend $325 on a makeup bag? Actually I have a greater question, do I even have over $300 to spend on another bag?

Answer: not really. But will I consider it? Of course I will. That’s a bad personality trait, trust me. The Marc Jacobs Collection Soft Calf Cosmetics Pouch is just one of those beautifully simple bags that I can’t pass up. It is simple, small, divine, and the perfect unnecessary accessory. When I look at this bag I swear I can feel the craftsmanship of the smooth calf leather. Another simply beautiful addition is the signature press-lock, which adds some flirty fun. Now I have to rave to you about the color. The aquamarine is so gorgeous I can’t get over it. It is just one of those elegant blue colors that makes you smile. The bag is lined in a colorful suede and is the perfect size, 7.5″ x 4″ x 2″, to be carried around in your large oversized tote. If you are one of the lucky few to be able to afford this makeup pouch and con promise me you won’t let it get as dirty as you do your other ones, then hop over to eLuxury and buy it for $325.

Gucci Log Carrier

Gucci Log CarrierI do not know what we would do without sales!!! And a sale from Gucci nonetheless. Here is the clincher. It’s for a totally off the wall product. Think hard about what you would associate Gucci with. I will give you 5 seconds… 5…. 4…. 3…. 2…. 1. Now tell me if what you thought of was the Gucci Log Carrier. If you answered no, you are totally normal like the rest of us. If you actually said, “Why yes Megs! That is exactly what I was thinking of!” well then you are really way too cool for me. I’m just really wondering who would want to carry hunks of dirty wood in a log carrier made by Gucci. What astonishes me even more is the mental picture of people carrying wood, dirty insect-filled wood, to their fireplaces in a Gucci log carrier. But like I always say — whatever floats your boat. If you have the money and Gucci is your style, then why not? The log carrier is 33.5 x 21.5 inches so it can fit most of your log needs (haha… still laughing). The outside is made of brown/black laser GG logo with black leather trim and suede interior. Ok, wow. Who needs to let their logs touch suede?? Well if I have not sold you on this ‘bag’ yet, here comes the clincher. Marked down from $1350 the suede wood carrier is now only $539 at Gucci.

Children#8217;s Animal Backpacks #038; Pouches

Kids BackpackYesterday after a day trip to Cologne (in the northeast part of Germany), I realized that I have been leaving out a huge part of our population: the kids! Shame on me. This was never intentional, trust me! I saw so many little munchkins running around yesterday and I decided they needed to have their own handbag category! I know many of you remember or have children now that make you remember that little kids love to have bags. I always needed to have some sort of little compartment to hold all of my ‘things’. I have told you all once before that I am an avid collector of ‘things’, but that did not come with age. That started wayyy back when. I had little purses, pouches, backpacks, Barbie travel cases, wallets, etc. You name it, I had it. I carried the dumbest things around. If I could have had it my way all the time, I would have left the house carrying My Buddy in one arm, Kid Sister in the other, and playing Skip-It while I walked. Let’s all do a way back when recall: Silly Putty (in the egg shell), Polly Pocket, sticky-hands from the 25 cent machine, California Raisins, travel size Etch-A-Sketch, Barbie dolls, Gak, miniature Pound-Puppies, My Little Pony, My Littlest Pet Shop, Gumby, Linkin Logs, Snap Bracelets, fuzzy stickers, and much more (not to mention my Easy Bake Oven at home! Oh yea, I was a chef in the making). But a kid has to have somewhere to carry all of this stuff right? I traveled with all of my goods just like my mommy carried her purse with her goods. Just as important as it is for all of us grown-up fashionistas to carry a purse, it is just as important for kids to feel like they can relate and carry their special things around too.

This is why I am in love with this Children’s Animal Backpacks & Pouches. The adorable matching set choices are cat, monkey, butterfly, or frog. Knowing how I was, I would have picked the money for sure. The backpacks measure 8 1/2-12 1/2″H x 10 1/2″-12″W while the matching pouches that coordinate with the backpacks are 4 1/4″-5 1/2″H x 4 1/2″-5″W. The set is made of cotton and polyester which makes the bags easy for washing. This is a major perk for anyone caring for a kid! Kids are messy! With the assortment of animals kids have a choice to be individual and pick the animal that they relate with/like the most. The adorable backpack is $48 and the matching pouch is only $18 through Neiman Marcus.

*The way I see it, buying any kid a bag like this would be a hit! You’d be the best grown-up on the block ;-) *

Momo Safe Chair

Kat2 posted this one on our Forums and it was just too brilliantly simply to pass it up. The Momo Safe Chair, straight Museum of Modern Art, has to be credited to the Design Against Crime Research Centre based at Central Saint Martins.

I don’t think anyone will be trying to sack your bag from between your legs anytime soon. Although I see it being not thought out into the last detail, because especially ladies of shorter stature will be more likely to fold their legs behind and under the chair, rubbing against their bag.

More on the DAC project in a little.

Gucci Wallpaper

Gucci Wallpaper Any of you thinking of remodeling your house? If you are I am sure you have to go through the never-ending process of choosing paint color, wallpaper design, cabinets, fixture selections, etc, etc. So when you are looking for that perfect wallpaper to add to let’s say your family room or your bedroom, would you ever consider this Gucci Wallpaper? I mean seriously… would you?

This unsightly Gucci Wallpaper I came across is designed with the small GG print in a beige pearlized color. If you would honestly consider it I will go on with the specs: it’s made of cellulose and vinyl with a polyurethane resin finish. There is 1 roll per pack (72 sq. ft., 28 inches wide) and the height of each GG is 0.7 inches. Gucci says that this wallpaper is not recommended for humid areas. Hum wonder why this expensive unpractical paper would not be able to go in any room of the house? So I suppose this leaves out your bathrooms. This wallpaper sells for $85 a roll on Gucci.

Personally I’d love to hear your opinions on this matter: I don’t even always like prints on bags let alone hanging all over my house. Would you use this to show people, ‘hey, I really can afford Gucci and I’ll even slab it on my walls to show you I have made it in this world!’ Yikes, I think not.

Marc Jacobs Collection Cropped Flare Pant

Marc Jacobs Collection Cropped Flare Pant

Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. For some reason, Sunday feels about 182 times lazier than Saturday. It always has to me. It is more of a lazy unproductive day for me than any other. Typically I don’t get out of my PJ’s until about 2 pm (that is if I do ;-) ). So while I understand wanting to wear comfortable clothes, I also find some ‘comfortable’ clothes unappealing. Having nothing to do with bags at all, I’d like to introduce you to a pair of pants that I don’t quite understand. I stumbled upon the Marc Jacobs Collection Cropped Flare Pants and immediately became perplexed. Usually the models on the sites/in the magazines can pull off the craziness of clothes, but I don’t think these pants look flattering at all. Yet, these pants are a distinctly look straight from the Spring 2006 runway show, which means I may be way out of style this spring since I don’t like these pants. Made from 100% cotton, the cropped flare pant ’sits low on the hips and then flares out with brio to create a voluminous leg that stops just short of the ankle- pair with a more fitted top for striking style’. If you were to wear these pants and did not pair them with a fitted top, it would look even more wrong in my opinion. The pants also have two pleats on each side, side trouser pockets, a back flap pocket on the left, and a back besom pocket on the right. I’m quite tall and I can imagine myself looking like an oompa-loopma in these. To me, it would take an extraordinary person to pull these pants off. Am I wrong? Buy these cotton pants for a hefty $875 via eLuxury.
