Dior Metallic Cannage Shoulder Bag

Okay, forget what I've always said about overpriced handbags, this Metallic Cannage Shoulder Bag from Dior is one big attention getter. Fashioned in quilted metallic lambskin, it features cannage pattern embroidery and is accented in aged metal hardware. I just love the way the flat leather shoulder straps are woven through the large grommets and I'm really loving the logo jacquard lining. With plenty of interior pockets, and the unmistakable signature "D" charm you can buy this classy little bag at eLuxury. Available in Aged Gold or Aged Silver, it measures 19x9x7. With a price tag of $1,795, it'll definitely set you back a few paychecks, and you may starve for a few months, but who cares, at least you'll look good carrying it, right?

Dior Gaucho Zipped Tote

Ohhhh...If only I had an endless money tree in my back yard, I would have the largest bag collection in the state! I would definitely add the Dior Gaucho Zipped Tote to the group. This vintage looking tote is made of supple calf leather and trimmed out in lambskin with contrast stitching. Accented in silver metal hardware with flat leather shoulder straps, with oodles of antique silver metal links, buckles, and interior pockets this could be a real conversation piece in itself. It also has a saddle-like flap and a "1947" Christian Dior medallion and large key dangling on front that really adds class to this awesome bag. Measuring 15x11x6, you can buy this bag at eLuxury for a very expensive, (but well worth it) $1,990.

This very expensive bag features a zip top closure with a logo jacquard lining and 5.5" drop leather handle with link chain straps. You can purchase this Dior at eLuxury at a bargain price of $2,400. I don't know about you folks, aged goats or not, I still can hardly fathom killing goats for a handbag. (No matter how cute the bag is).

Dior Flight Leather Shopper

dior-flight-shopper.jpgSanta did a pretty good job of bringing me everything on my list this year, but I think he may have forgot to slip one of these under the tree. The Leather Shopper from Dior's Flight collection features stunning white leather and has polished silver hardware detailing. Closing with a magnetic snap, the bag has gathered sides, rolled leather handles, and a fun and familiar orange neoprene flight tag. It's rare for me to say that I might even think about a handbag being worth $1,250 (and I cringe at the thought that it might become a habit), but I'm pretty sure I would trade my thumbs for this one. The Dior Flight Shopper is available at eLuxury and measures 12 x 8 x 5.5 inches. In Santa's defense, he did bring me a new pink limited edition Razr cell phone so I ain't mad at him.

It comes complete with a wide shoulder strap, front flap pocket, and leather belt with grommets reaching across the top of the bag. Hottest thing about this purse: the orange rubber Dior Flight tag that reads "Remove Before Flight". Not quite as hot: the price tag that reads $1.550.

Dior Detective Medium Bag

christian-dior-detective.jpgChristian Dior's new Detective bag is one of the new "it" purses of the season. The frame-shaped bag features a velvety smooth leather exterior with detailed topstitching and zip closure. Inside the purse is a satin-finished tan and white flower lining. I think what does it for me are the two snap pockets on the front with the dangling "C" and "D". And no ladies, that does not stand for "Card" "Declined", although at $1,650, the price of this bag might make you rethink your purchases for the rest of the month. In black, the Detective Bag makes me want to do some investigating to see if I can sell something to buy it.
