Elliott Lucca Summer 2010, Which Handbag Should I Get: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

Last week I previewed Elliott Lucca, The Sak, Sakroots and Freebird summer 2010 collections - all part of The Sak Brand. I love this particular appointment for several reasons: the fabulous Andrea who handles PR, the affordable and stylish bags, the fact that smart questions are asked and notes are taken by the pr rep during the appointment, and getting to choose any handbag I fancy. That means, I get a bag from The Sak Brand about 5 times per year. Sweat perk no?

This time, I'd like your help in selecting the handbag I should get.

I've narrowed it down to a new silhouette from Elliott Lucca (see below). This satchel has signature woven detailing on the front, a generous opening, shoulder strap option, and plenty of pockets. I'm loving the white because I just need a new white bag and I like the tortes shell accent on the turnlock. The metallic navy color is also quite nice. So, which do you prefer for me?

Leave a comment below stating which color you prefer and why ... who knows, maybe you'll win one too - hint, hint!

Meeting Tracy of Tucker Paisley in LA, plus BagTrends Holiday Party: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

Last month I went to Los Angeles for a week of fun in the sun -- OK, actually it was more like a week of driving around in a car while the suns rays burned through the windshield. I was on a mission to find an amazing venue for an upcoming BagTrends LA Arm Candy Party (details to come). During my visit, I also checked out some of my favorite boutiques (including Arcade by Rochelle Gores) and finally had a chance to meet Tracy Fredkin founder of Tucker Paisley.

For those that don't know, Tucker Paisley, is an accessories brand that originally started out making handbag with paisley prints on canvas and quickly expanded into using leather and suede. Tucker Paisley also makes small leather goods, scarfs (one of which I'm wearing in this video) and beachwear.

Tracy and I hit if off so much that she's decided to come to New York and have BagTrends host a Holiday Shopping Soiree for Tucker Paisley. Michelle and I are really excited because we just love working with nice people and we both love clutches and Tracy makes lots of clutches. That's Tracy, at right, holding the Embossed Joey Clutch $155.

I hope you can join us December 2 from 5pm - 8pm. Details Below. Space is super limited so you can only bring one guest. If your friends want to come, they must rsvp separately.
