JADEtribe Valerie Nautical Striped Tote

Beach tote season is almost here! In fact, it seems to be already here for some people. And I’m not talking about whether or not it’s warm enough to hit the beach or hang out at the pool. I’m talking about theessence of summer — that lazy day feeling that only the summer months can bring, no matter where you are. That is what I see when I look at the tote you see here! Take a moment and discover the JADEtribe Valerie Striped Tote!
JADEtribe Valerie Striped Tote 
Launched in 2009, the JADEtribe handbag collection is inspired by the artwork of a weaving village in Laos. Natural organic dyes and intricate weaving are what make JADEtribe handbags really unique and different from many other designer labels. JADEtribe is an ethical brand too, since the company actually employs people from the village to create exclusive fabrics for the collection.

What I love about the Valerie Tote is the traditional, canvas tote bag design where the top is wider than the bottom and the handles are short. It almost feels like a market tote that you would using for shopping. Of course the bag could be used for that purpose, however this lovely tote is so much more than that! I love the navy and white vertical stripes and brightly colored tassels trimmed with puka shells. The definition of nautical inspired- because you can’t get enough of that this time of the year! Also I love the way the top of the bag folds over to make way for an optional shoulder strap, giving this tote a unique look.

Foley + Corinna Dipped in Gold Apollo Tote

Foley + Corinna Dipped in Gold Apollo Tote

After all of this time, I still love Foley + Corinna handbags. I don’t know what it is, but I feel drawn to them somehow. Maybe it is the unique styles or soft leathers. What I particularly love about the handbag brand Foley + Corinna, is that they still manage to produce new bag styles all the time. One of the latest spring / summer handbag editions that caught my attention is the Foley + Corinna Apollo Tote.

The style is different, and I mean that in a good way. When I first laid eyes on the Apollo tote, I was immediately drawn the the dramatic contrasting colors: black and metallic gold. From a distance, it looks as though this tote was dipped halfway into a bucket of gold paint. However, upon closer inspection, the pattern reveals brush strokes. Not dainty brush strokes, but rather large brush strokes as if someone were painting a house or fence.

The Foley + Corinna Apollo Bag is definitely a unique and fun piece. My only regret is that it’s canvas and not leather. Wouldn’t that be gorgeous? Smooth black leather “dipped” in gold? This canvas tote is less than $100 so I suppose I can’t complain. After all, it would make a great tote for shopping or even the beach.

Celine Mini Tie Tote

Categories:Other Brands


When Kelly read our article: ‘Celine Tie Small Bag from the Fall Winter 2014 Collection’, she thought: ‘forget about the Small, I’m getting the Mini’.

The Tie Tote is the new ‘classic’ of Celine, it has been re-introduced in new colors, leathers and styles since is has been released. So far, it’s available in the large and the small size, but after the Fall Winter 2014 Collection, surprisingly, Celine has introduced the Mini version.

The Tie Tote is famous for its knots on the end of the handles. It partly inspired by the Phantom tote with its side wings. Actually, the side wings on the Tie totes are much larger, making it more practicable and easy to expand the wings for more space. It’s a timeless handbag and can be carried in all season.

Kelly bought her Mini Tie Tote in Pure Black and crisped calfskin. She noticed that the Mini Tie Tote is made from very high quality. The size is close to the Micro Luggage Tote, which is 10’ x 9’ (L x H)

Lady Dior, Diorissimo, Diorama, Be Dior and now the Diorever – All of these names has Dior in it and they are like music in our ears.

How much Dior handbags can you collect? How much do you already have in your wardrobe? There is actually one more bag that you should put on your wish list for the next season – the Dior Diorever Tote Bag.

This bag is absolutely to-die-for. I would name it the Diorama Tote Bag, but Dior rather gives it a distinctive name – it’s a totally different bag, though the crest-shaped clasp might look the same as the one your recognize on the Diorama Bag…but this is a tote bag.

Covered in durable leather (for now only in calfskin), completely handmade, you will love the experience. The bag comes with two top handles, the side of the flap is embellished with two (circular) buttons of which we believe is a snap-button to close the bag.

So do you want to know the details?

The Dior Diorever Tote Bag comes in three sizes:

Dior Diorever Mini Tote Bag
Size: 8.3’ x 6.7’ x 6.7’ inches

Dior Diorever Medium Tote Bag
Size: 11.8’ x 9.1’ x 6.3’ inches

Dior Diorever Large Tote Bag
Size: 13.4’ x 10.2’ x 6.7’ inches

What do you think?
