Loving

I wouldn’t be a true clotheshorse if I didn’t go absolutely crazy for this purse (or pretty much any purse) by Horse+Nail. These bags are beyond exquisite, combining rich, luxurious leather with horse inspired hardware. Their charm lies in their blending of western/equestrian chic with a hard edge rock and roll vibe. They are truly unique and unlike anything else on the market, this is not only a bag you will love but a bag that other people will notice when you walk down the street. Move over Gucci there is a new game in town that puts your horse inspired bags to shame! I want one so bad I can hardly stand it! You can drool over their bags by going to their website www.horseandnail.com and www.shopbop.com.

Have You Met Kate?

If you are a fashionista you are probably quite familiar with Kate, as in Kate Spade. The original creator of one of the first “it” bags, the nylon, boxy Sam bag seen on the shoulders of many a fashionable woman in the 90’s. Since then the company has faltered and stagnated a bit but thanks to new creative director Deborah Lloyd (by way of Banana Republic and Burberry) it seems to be roaring back to its rightful place of high fashion.

Kate Spade just debuted its clothing collection and it is beyond fab! It is chocked full of trendy, mod pieces that can easily be mixed and matched adding a touch of drama and elegance to your wardrobe. The new shoes for fall are gorgeous and the handbags and jewelry are worth a look. Reacquaint yourself with the new Kate at www.katespade.com.

The Kate Spade items that are on my must have list.
