Lemme in on Some Lucite

About six years ago, I realized I didn’t really have a fabulous clutch — or any for that matter, besides my mom’s beaded purse from the 70’s (some things are not vintage, just old).  As with most things, I went overboard, and now I have baskets full.  However, I would happily make room for one of the incredible babies by Edie Parker: new lucite clutches, like the glamour girls used to rock.  They come complete with — are you ready?  A  mirror attached inside!  What  more could a glamour girl these days want?  Not much.  I found some  vintage clutches that I mixed in:… MORE

Bring it On, Bouchon

I’ve been quiet lately, dealing with some pesty problems at home — but no more.  Time to go out!  Bouchon means bottle cap.  When you get me talking, especially about fashion, it’s hard for me to put a cork in it.

Green Bean

Don’t get me wrong, I love my black.  And for a while there, I wore nothing but popsicle colors.  There is a balance, and it’s in rich colors that make us pop. Take the color green — one look at the About BAG page, and you’ll see how much I love it. From kelly to forrest green,  I have six or seven dresses, and why not?  It brings out our skin, hair and eyes in such an incredible way.  Dark green is wonderful on brunettes (and dark redheads), while light to medium green is fabulous on blondes (and light redheads); but… MORE
