Kruse-ing into Fashion

If you have ever found a hidden treasure, you know what it's like to want to keep it to yourself for a while. After some time, however, it's only right for you to show-and-share. Well, a fashion-find is very much like a hidden treasure - you love being the first to know about it and you often opt to avoid answering the "Where did you get that?" questions.

Well, I'm over my selfish phase and ready to show-and-share my latest handbag find - Janna Kruse. Janna's line, while still small, shows promise of future glory. Her designs are smart, clean and avoid all the over-design trappings that plague many novices.

The Janna Kruse Katya wristlet, a two-in-one bag that can flip inside out providing two color options, is featured in the current installment of Top 3 Trends on But, it’s the Nina clutch that I truly crave. The architectural juxtaposition of rough embossed croco with smooth lambskin, creates a sophisticated look. Gold rivets add an edge that is softened by the lambskin rouging. It’s this type of balance that is often missing in the evening bag genre.

Always bag-a-licious,
Pamela Pekerman
