I Want This!!!
When IT bags in tried-and-tired metallics and boring logo monograms start to take their toll, it's time to bring some urban-tribe elegance to your must-have of the season. Fendi's quirky Voodoo Bag with its ethnic yarns and offbeat oaillettes is quite unlike other tote.
This designer bag is festooned with wild wool, spangles, colored leather, glitter and felt pailettes, making this bag look like it is adorned with mermaid scales.
So, how do you put together an ensamble to go with this out-of-the-world bag? Play the mix master and wear this bag with unlikely textural pairings such as silk and angora, or go boho-chic with a kaftan and jeans.
This delish bag is priced at around $7500.00.

Style Icon - Brigitte Bardot
While many of us look to celebrities for fashion inspiration, we must not forget fashionistas from yester-year like Audrey, Marilyn, Marlene, and one blond sex bomb, Brigitte Bardot.
Her style was simple, youthful and chic. French women are renowned for their great fashion sense and Bardot was no different. Being naturally very beautiful, she alluded glamour in her sensational looks. She had a distinct way of sexifying a cardigan, cropped jeans and flats.
Her style embodies the French approach to dressing. Feminine, elegant and largely very simple, but always very seductive.

Bag Borrow Or Steal Vintage Collection
Bag Borrow or Steal, the 'luxury on loan' makes vintage a thing of the present with the launch of their Vintage Collection. The new collection is a compilation of the most sought-after vintage handbags in the world available for borrowing.
The Vintage Collection features iconic designers including Hermès, Chanel, and Gucci. The collection gives every woman the opportunity to incorporate the glamour of another era into her daily wardrobe with rare, hard to find pieces from past decades.
"Bag Borrow or Steal pays close to attention to the key fashion trends of today, in addition to predicting the fashion trends of tomorrow," said Patricia Hambrick, chief marketing officer for Bag Borrow or Steal. "In the ever-changing world of fashion, vintage accessories are in high demand right now. Through the Vintage Collection, we are giving women easy access to a whole new level of luxury and making it possible for them to experience the excitement of carrying a designer vintage handbag."
Bag Borrow or Steal worked closely with Clair Watson, couture consultant for Doyle New York and now vintage curator for Bag Borrow or Steal, to assemble the collection, leveraging Watson's extensive knowledge of vintage accessories, to ensure that every handbag in the collection is authentic.
"As a result of the rising popularity of vintage accessories, their price tags are soaring, nearly doubling what they were 10 years ago," said Watson. "Vintage fashion makes a distinctive style statement in a fashion landscape where it is increasingly difficult to stand out. The designer handbags in the Vintage Collection give women the means to enhance their personal style and express their individuality."
Each piece in the Vintage Collection will be individually priced with monthly rental fees ranging from $100-4,800. Weekly rental will be available, starting for as low as $40.
Some of the available Vintage handbags ::
Why is fashion luxury from the past so sought-after today? As Elizabeth Mason writes in Valuable Vintage, "The great thing about vintage is that it doesn't get old, it just gets older...!" So just how old is vintage? The fashion industry defines the vintage era the last 100 years. Anything older than that—such as Victorian—is referred to as "antique."
