M.I.L.K. Accessories

A friend of mine and I are embarking on something huge!! Almost two years of thinking, dreaming, and wishing that we could create something in the fashion industry has finally come into fruition. After much thought we have come up with something great! M.I.L.K Accessories is our new company! M.I.L.K. will consist of small goods made of leather and other fabrics. Further down the road we hope to branch out into larger accessories.

We are in the beginning stages of creating a stunning logo, interviewing designers, getting funding together and doing the business set up. As the project comes along I will definitely post about it. I think all of you fashionistas will love out products as well as our brand.

On Trend: Clutches

Some say clutches are for special occassions only. I strongly disagree. They are such a great addition to an outfit and an absolute conversation piece. Everything for wooden handles to convertible clutches that fold over from a larger bag.  Check out these styles made of everything from patterned fabric to leather.

Fashion TV: Louis Vuitton Commercials

I know I’m late on this but below is Louis Vuitton’s first television commercial ever. All I have to say is where are the bags?????

And while we are on the topic of Louis Vuitton, do we really need a specialty line from the rap star and super music producer Pharrell Williams? Pharrell, you’re cute but please… PLEASE!

I’m a Bag Whore… Didn’t I tell you?

I swear I am. I will do ANYTHING for a bag. I love high end bags, bags that are worth more than a mortgage payment, and even bags bought on the sidewalk in Soho. I LOVE LOVE LOVE handbags! I think it was Wendy Williams who said one time on her nationally syndicated radio show that bags and accessories are a fat girl’s true vice when it comes to fashion. Why? Since we can’t fit the clothes and maybe even the shoes, we buy up everything else.

That is so true about me. Before I got Lasik surgery I wore Chanel glasses and carried an authentic Chanel wallet.  I have all of the Burberry fragrances along with the matching travel case that was “the free gift” with purchase.  I even own a pair of pink, Chanel double “C” earrings that were all the rage about 5 years ago. This, all because I couldn’t walk into Chanel and purchase couture in my size.

Slowly but surely, designers are coming around. Norma Kamali has put out a few plus size pieces such as this red, side drape dress made out of polyester and spandex. It goes up to 3x, but I’m not sure if it’s worth $298. We’ll just have to see… you know I ordered it! But until more designers go beyond standard sizing, I’ll continue to be a bag whore and lust after the following:

or maybe this… Chloe Paddington Tote - brick red from Chloe.  And finally, no fashionista’s bag game is correct without a little something from LV. This tote would look perfect on my trip to Paris and Provence this summer!
