My Handbag Buddy

Handbags and wallets go hand and hand. Wallets are a must have accessory.

 They come in many different styles, colors, fabrics and shapes.

You have your standard wallet, checkbook wallet, mini card holder, agendas, coin purse, and your wristlet. Here are just a few examples of wallets.

 

Standard Wallets

A basic women’s wallet comes in two sizes, a longer 3.5 by 8.5 inches or a mini version about half that size. Most fold in halves or thirds and are held together by a clasp. They provide all the basic features needed such as pockets for cards, money, notes and coins.

Agendas

The non-electronic method of staying organized is found in an agenda. The agenda wallets are a combination of organization and storage. Certainly a larger type, most contain a complex system including diaries, calendars, notebooks, address books, calculator, pen loops, plus all the basic wallet style pockets and compartments.

Checkbook

This style of wallet is about the size of a checkbook, with standard features including card pockets, change pouches, ID window slots, and a removable checkbook cover that slips in and out of the wallet folds.

Coin Purse

Is usually a small, one-pocket women’s wallet with a firm clasp to contain your coins. The most important feature of a coin purse is the closure, with zippers, clasps or kiss-locks being the most effective.

Mini Card Holders

Is the size of a credit card that holds a variety of types of cards within pockets or accordion style compartments. Many have a snap, magnet, or zipper to fasten it closed.

Wallet on a String

Is quite petite, this wallet is basically a miniature purse with built in pockets to incorporate the handbag-as-a-wallet concept. The string is a tiny purse strap that allows you to carry the wallet on your shoulder or across your chest. These are good for carrying just the necessity and being hands free. Also for women that don’t like carrying around a full size handbag.

Wristlet

Are similar, wallet-style accessories with a small strap to carry on your wrist in your hand. Some also have a small pocket to hide the string when not in use, or even have clips to completely detach the strap. These are very good when you want to carry just the necessity things.

 

While some women prefer to match their wallet to their handbags, or shoes, others like to have the fun and whimsical wallet styles.

The most common wallet textiles are:

  • Leather
  • Canvas
  • Cotton
  • Lizard
  • Microfiber
  • Plastic
  • Nylon
  • Polyester
  • Suede
  • Velvet
  • Vinyl
  • Snakeskin
  • Alligator
  • Crocodile

The variety of women’s wallets can be quite overwhelming. In today’s market, many brands provide you a decent wallet at a great price.

Also keep in mind just like shopping for a handbag choose the one that fits your personality.

It’s a messenger satchel handbag and there has been a lot of rave about it.

This bag has a quilted soft texture, kind of resembles the Chanel handbags. It has gold chain detail and gold accents. Two front faux buckle straps, you also have the turn lock flap envelop style closure. I love the chain trim which makes it very stylish, you can carry this bag from the work place right to happy hour. It looks like a mini briefcase.

Falling for you!!!

23 Aug

Ladies… Why, Why, Why, do we do this to ourselves?

We love them and don’t want to do without them, so we put ourselves in compromising situations

Wearing heels we know are too high for us and we can sometimes barely walk in them.

Don’t get it twisted you do have some ladies that can strut their stuff in heels, and other may struggle.

We would rather be embarrassed and look cute at the same time, but we love them and they really look fabulous on our feet.

I guess celebs do it all the time.

Check out some of our favorite celebrities tumbling over in their heels (not funny).

 

Always keep it Glamourlicious

What is a Hobo Handbag?

27 Jul

The hobo bag is a style of handbag or purse that is typically large and characterized by a crescent shape, a slouchy structure and a long strap designed to wear over the shoulder. Hobo bags are made out of soft, flexible materials and tend to slump, or slouch, when you sit down. There are many different sizes and shapes of this popular handbag.

The hobo bag has become a very popular choice worn by Hollywood celebrities.

Hobo bags have a strap, whose length is often adjustable. Most women wear hobo bags on their shoulder, as opposed to holding the strap in their hand. Hobo bags are produced using flexible materials such as soft leather, microfiber or suede. As a result, this style of bag tends to slouch or fold in on itself, even when hanging from a woman’s shoulder.

Hobo bags tend to have a casual appearance they look great when paired with relaxed summer apparel that includes maxi sun dresses, skinny jeans or even cotton Capri pants.

Most hobo bags provide women with enough room to carry all their essential items such as a wallet, phone and cosmetics bag. If you’re anything like me in the summer I love to wear heels but I carry a pair of flip flops in my bag as well.

While hobo bags look great, different styles and colors are appropriate for different occasions.

Large hobo bags are too bulky and should not be worn with office attire, particularly conservative suits or with very formal dresses. Instead, they are better paired with casual clothing. When choosing a hobo bag for formal attire, pick one that’s smaller in size also one that is a solid color without pattern.

Hobo handbags can vary in pricing and we carry an array of them. Look for stylish hobos at www.loveourhandbags.com.

Bright, Bold Summer Time…

18 Jul

Bright Bold Summer Time Colors

How to wear brighter colors with your outfights without looking to gaudy. You can accessorize your wardrobe with subtle colors that make your outfits really pop.  Be a risk taker and wear bolder outfits that are gorgeous.   Try hot pink maxi dress or canary yellow or bright orange complimented with accessories that bring out the colors. From the stage to red carpets celebrities add glowing hues to their wardrobes. This is like the 80’s where vibrant color schemes were in vogue. For those less adventurous small accents of the trends will still electrify your look…in other words accent such as bracelets, rings, necklaces and watches can make or break the outfit.
