The iconic checkered brown, white and red. Burberry is a classic, a brand that will never go out of style or fade from the fashion magazines. There’s something so timeless about a Burberry scarf, bag or trench. As much as I love timeless looks, they can sometimes seem so drab to me. The same look, same design, year after year. It can get so ordinary. However, as I’ve peeped the selection of Burberry handbags at Neiman Marcus, I’m excited to see fresh new takes on the standard plaid. The addition of studs, colors and patent leather turn these bags from typical to trendy!

Burberry Heart Studded Satchel
What I really love about this bag is the color and studs. Usually with heart embellishment, bags [or anything] can look REALLY juvenile. This bag takes the heart look and matures it with a rich brown color and studding!

Although this ad, like most of theirs, is very sexy and alluring, I must admit…I’ve never been a big fan of Fendi. I’ve seen a few girls with the monogrammed Fendi bags, and honestly, they just aren’t my style. To me, the only monogram bag I’ll carry is a Louis. Well, after stalking Neiman Marcus for quite some time, I stumbled on a STUNNING floral inspired tote bag that made me salivate. I started gasping, oohing and ahhing (to Elliot’s dismay) and nearly died of shock when I realized who made it. If Fendi makes bags that look like this, I thought, I will happily jump on that bandwagon and ride into the sunset. So folks, although I’m still not a fan of their monograms, I’m absolutely in love with their other designs. All are available at Neiman Marcus.

Isn’t this stunning metallic Salvatore Ferragamo clutch to die for? [Photos via]
Salvatore Ferragama isn’t just known for his fabulous shoes (but they are amazing, right?) His entire line of handbags are absolutely gorgeous as well. Although I’ve always had a taste for the finer things in life (caviar taste on a beer budget, if you will), this weekly breakdown of designers has really opened my eyes to some fabulous handbags I would have once overlooked, including these Salvatores. Since I already own a pair of gorgeous black pumps from his collection (I bought them at Marshall’s, but they still count, right?) I obviously need one of these handbags to round out the outfit. Once again, I’m accepting any of these as a wedding present! [All can be found at Neiman Marcus]

On a rainy day like today, it’s hard to stay awake, better yet feel motivated or excited towards anything. When the rain is pouring down and it’s dark and dreary, the only thing I want to do is hide under my covers and sleep. These feelings of misery, fatigue and weather depression quickly faded, though, when I realized it was Thursday, which meant it’s handbag designer spotlight time! There are few things in this world that can shake my moods, and designer bags are one of them! This week I’m focusing on Chloé, who I have a fairly new obsession with. I’ve seen Chloé’s bags on many celebs arms, but never really got what all the hype was about. That was until I stumbled upon the collection on Nordstrom and instantly fell in love. The collection features bags with unique shapes and designs that aren’t overly dramatic, embellished or flashy and are made of 100% real leather. With a product this good, why gunk it up with sequins or a crowded design? As of now, I’m drooling over the ‘Aurore’ Jacquard tote. I’d seriously live in this bag if I had to.
