Toos Fringed Evening Bag

toos.jpgTwo words: Toos Fringed Evening Bag is freaky. Ok, that was six but you get the idea. I've been contemplating posting about this bag for a few weeks now and although I hate to waste precious Purseuing space just hating on a bag, I could no longer contain myself. This bag looks like a booger! "Whimsical, elegant, and perfect for cocktail hour-", uh, did I read that right? Nothing about this little green monster is perfect. And the price is absolutely ridiculous! $1,500 for a green, shag handbag? Thanks Mr. Bergdorf Goodman, but I believe I'll have to pass on this one.

Melanie Dizon Seraphim

melanie-dizon.jpgI don't normally dig bags that are this unique, but there's just something about this one that's sticking with me no matter how many times I decide it's too weird. The evening bag-sized Seraphim ($500) from designer Melanie Dizon has a cool suede looped fringe with metallic leather body. It's lined in ultrasuede and has a satin tape zipper closure and metallic leather covered chain strap. Now I just have to find something to wear it with... and a hidden stash of money.

Ono Bridal Collection: Honi

ono-bridal-bag.jpgThe Honi from the Ono Bridal Collection is quite stunning with its multi-faceted beads and/or crystal pearl handles. The silk bag is decorated with beads and has a magnetic snap closure. The Honi comes in white silk with flowers or lace, antique pewter silk, and black silk. It measures 6.5 x 4 inches and is priced at $135. Ya know, I just thought of something. You don't have to wait on your boyfriend of five years to marry you in order to buy bridal accessories. If you keep waiting around on him, pretty soon you'll be too old to carry any purse that doesn't dangle from your walker. So just go ahead and buy a bridal bag if you want. I’m gonna.


Judith Leiber Feather & Sequin Satin Bag

judith--leiber-evening.jpgLooks like some little evening bag had a bad hair day. I will admit it's a waste of my time and yours to post a purse only to bash it, but come on. This bag had it coming. I just can't see paying $2,000 for what appears to be someone’s missing ponytail. Besides, I can barely take care of myself, let alone deal with the upkeep and grooming of my purse as well. No thank you.
