Resort 12 Celine Fluorescent Pink Mini Luggage

It's official I am obsessed with this bag.

In all honesty I have to admit that I liked it before but wasn't in love with it until I saw this color.  I'm not the most practical when it comes to handbag colors, I like them bright since it's the only way I'm getting color into my wardrobe aside from shoes.

I've been calling/e-mailing around like crazy but no such luck yet.

I'm not giving up though.

I am still very confused as to the color though.  It comes up much brighter in some photographs and I am aware that there is also a fuchsia/hibiscus color but I actually don't think the fuchsia is pictured in any of the photos below.

*AMQ* ~ The Arrival

I honestly don't think I've been this excited about a purse since my YSL Muse 2 find at the NMLC thanks again to a lovely tpfer alerting me about the steal. 

Oh wait I lied, my LV MOCA Neverfull GM was another exciting purse find since I haven't seen it for the price I got on that size ever again and have only seen it for that price on the PM size ::gasp::

Anyway last weekend I was doing my usual ebay searches, shoes, bags, shoes and more shoes and I came across this fabulous AMQ Brittania Skull Clutch being sold by A.

I messaged her immediately and she got back to me super quickly, I paid and she sent it out the following Monday.


The craftsmanship, the leather, the studs, everything.  I love it.  I can totally see the obsession and the need to collect these beautiful and highly coveted purses.  Not to mention it is a lot larger than you would think and comfortably holds my phone, chapstick, cards, etc.

I also wanted to add in my UHG AMQ clutch.  There's currently one listed on ebay, but with the exchange rates, the duties I'd have to pay since they want to ship it DHL and the markup in general, I just can't. 

It sure is nice to drool over though.

Colorblocking Trend

Despite having a pretty busy weekend (it was D's birthday weekend, photos of that to come later).  I managed to make it over to the mall on Sunday.  I don't have any fall clothes!!

I know this isn't new news but colorblocking seems to be the big thing still!

I was browsing Bloomingdales regular and sale racks and I came across these two colorblocking dresses that I quickly bought on presale, one to be picked up Wednesday, the other being sent to my house if they have it in stock.

I actually saw this first one the other night at Nordstrom but it wasn't on sale.  I love the colors of this dress and the long but sheer sleeves.  I'm not at my thinnest so I love that the dress is slightly billowy but is cinched at the waist for some definition.

The next dress I loved a while ago but was not prepared to shell out full price for it.  Low and behold it was on sale 30% and an extra 20% and I scooped this baby up without hesitation, yay for friends and family.  I couldn't actually find the dress in the colors I purchased (colbalt blue, nude, and black) but here is the other version.  I like my version more, the bright blue against the nude and black has so much more pop!

I also noticed another difference, the dress is pictured on a few sites, one has a ribbon sash, one has a skinny belt, but the SA at Bloomindales told me mine has niether.  I know I must have a skinny black belt somewhere at home or a ribbon.

*A*M*Q* Heaven

Thanks to an amazing tPFer A, I will be the adoring owner of this beautiful AMQ clutch in a mere few days.

Oh the excitement....

Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 Collection

Photos of the Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 Collection are starting to pop up!

11 more days until they are featured on

Two of my favorites so far, I'm sure there will be more to come.

I know D will hate the daffodiles but I really want a pair.  Even if they aren't pink suede, black or nude would be perfect.  Actually I still think if I were to purchase these I would need Lady Daffs and not Daffodiles, I need that little mary jane strap to keep them on my feet.

Now there is definitely something about these.  I don't think I would pay full price for these but at 50 or 60% off maybe?  I'm scared to even see the price of them, not that I will be buying anyway.

Celine Mini Luggage Tote in Neon Pink

While I do love the Celine luggage tote I have to admit I was a bit surprised how quick this little tote blew up on the bag scene.  It is a fairly plain structured style with exquisite leather and craftsmanship but nothing too fancy; much different than some of the other bags that have become cult classics aside from Hermes and a few others.

The bag comes in a variety of colors and leather types, most notably the colbalt blue which everyone wants and is most inconveniently sold out.

I was browsing my favorite blogs the other day and I came across this photo on

I am in LOVE!!

This chic structured look with a little pop of color is the perfect combination.
