Most (and when I say most I mean 99.9%) of fashion wish lists out there all include at least one Chanel item. And that item is more often than not a Chanel 2.55 Flap bag. I have to admit that while I am a big Chanel fan, 2.55 is not on my list – there are so many copies and interpretations of the bag I would rather find other Chanel gems to salivate about. And that is never a problem! This season I have two favourite pieces from the new Chanel collection: Canvas Tote with Calfskin Trim and Logo (above) and Python Embossed Leather Evening Clutch with Clasp (below). Tote is a perfect modern twist to the classics – still so Chanel with the trims and handles. But at the same time the material choice is a paradox: ordinary canvas has never had a higher price tag all thanks to white Chanel logo stamped on its side. The second bag is on the other hand pure luxury – an evening clutch worth saving for special occasions. Beautiful spring/summer colour, python leather, silver logo and the most classic box shape: there is nothing else one can wish for in a perfect evening clutch.

Chloe Elsie bags are not new. Yet with the latest new season additions of new colours and fabrics the bags became more desirable than ever before. And while it is hard to compete with the famous Chloe Paddington, I can see this range sticking around the IT-bag category for a while.
My favourite is by far a black python shoulder bag retailing at £1500 (left on the picture). It is absolutely timeless and the rose gold hardware, which is currently used by many hot designers is to die for. Yet if you prefer a more colourful bags to suit the seasons obsession with colour, there are various multicoloured version of python material available – reds, greens, blues – it is all up to you.
And of course if you prefer a day bag that fits all your essentials and more you can opt for a classic satchel which retains the elaborate Elsie closure and comes in 3 sizes and retails for £790-880 (right on the picture).
If we can take celebrity following as an indicator of the success of the bag, here are a few names that have been seen carrying an Elsie on more than one occasion: Leighton Meester, Sienna Miller, Kelly Rowland and Olivia Palermo. I don’t know how about you but I am convinced Elsie is hot and deserves a place on my fashion wish list!

The Outnet is in my opinion the king of all fashion outlets. And the reason is its creators – same team that brought the world http://www.net-a-porter.com. Apart from daily updates to the range, website hosts a series of fun online event like Pop Up sales, Going Going Gone auction sales and Give Aways.
My top 3 items have to be from the shoe range. There are so many great designers available but those particular items stole the show (especially after seeing how big the discount is). Here they are:
1. Alaia Leather Trimmed Python Platform Sandals at an astonishing 70% discount – £374. A definite statement pair of shoes. Hurry before they sell out, which will be fast fast fast!
2. Michael Kors Fringed Suede Boots at £193 instead of £553. A perfect way to add bohemian twist to your look.
3. Herve Leger Olechka Leather Ankle boots. The extent of their fabulousness is indescribable. (Hence the usage of a nonexistent word ‘fabulousness’). £260 which a is 60% sale. Want.them.now.
