How To Choose Bag To Flatter Your Body Shape

Handbag is the accessory that completes our physical appearance. It can make our overall outfit more glamorous and meaningful. So being a fashionista, we must be very careful in choosing handbags.
So, consider the following simple tips before buying your next handbag:

Bust. Women with big bosoms and broad shoulders should avoid handbags with short and tiny handles because these usually end around the bust area. If you want to expose your breast area, well short-handled handbags or clutches are perfect.

Waist and Hips. Broad waist, big stomach and hips will look less noticeable if you wear handbags that finish up under your arm.
Avoid handbags that go down to your midriff or hips to keep your bulges. Stay away from bags that go down to your midriff or hips, this will attract attention to your bulges. Big totes will look unflattering as well as bags with big funky details.
If you are lucky to have a slim waist, bag with handles of an average length will be a good option as well as a clutch. Modern clutch can be either tiny for evenings out or middle-sized to be roomy enough for all those items you always need to have with you.

Legs. Girls with long slim legs can wear bags with long handles and look great. Messenger type will work best. But ladies with short legs should choose classic shapes and sizes.

Frame. Women of larger frames should avoid tiny bags as they will look even bigger. You need well-tailored bags of average sizes. Choose from medium-large range. Clutches will be fantastic, but again choose oversized ones to keep proportion.

Tall and skinny girls can opt for broad and slouchy bags. Long bags will look unflattering.
Short women will want to look taller. This is easy to do if you select long and lanky bags that go in color harmony with your outfits. Stay away from wide oversized totes as they will make you look even shortery.

The Beautiful Prada Briefcase and Prada Luggage

Have you seen Baz Luhrmann’s new movie, ‘Australia’? Nicole Kidman (Lady Sarah Ashley in the film) was stunning there when she stepped ashore with a luggage all custom-made by Prada.

It was an award-winning Prada briefcase made famous by the beautiful Kidman. This extraordinarily comprehensive set of luggage takes four porters and a trolley to carry it.

The Prada luggage is made from ‘canapa’ and ‘saffiano’ leather, in an exclusive, blue and white color-scheme for the film, includes trunks, suitcases, hat-boxes, vanity cases and even a picnic set. The leather dates back to the very beginning of the luxury Italian fashion brand’s history when Mario Prada – Miuccia Prada’s grandfather and founder of the company – used it to make luggage for the Italian royal family. The unique goatskin is handcrafted today using the same techniques he employed almost a century ago.

Each piece requires more than one week’s hand-work to complete. Once the leather, without scars or blemishes, has been selected, it is then pulled over wooden frames, glued and stitched by hand.The piece is then assembled, completely by hand, including the addition of the locks, metal feet ‘hardware’ and the ‘vitello’ or calf leather-trim.

The lining is Prada’s signature nylon jacquard. Imagine the tedious process of making the briefcase. That simply shows how delicate and how Prada adheres to producing quality bags in all your needs. A selection of traditional suitcases and vanity cases is still part of Prada’s Pergamena luggage collection today.

Designer Miu Miu Handbags Collection

There are a number of designer handbags and this one should never be out of the limelight. In fact, many of my facebook friends asked me to feature Miu Miu handbags in my fashion reviews. Miu Miu and designer purses in general will welcome us with its Miu Miu Bird Suede and Python Clutch. We noticed the same designs over and over. Some site reviews would comment it less innovative. But as for me, quality matters. Whether it’s good or bad for others but in the case of this Miu Miu bag, I say it is really good.

Here is what I noticed in Miu Miu handbags. The clutch alternates strips of black python and pink suede with a python pink and black bird embellishment on the front. The bird accent breaks up the stripes and gives a fanciful touch. It is the shape of the bird that they use that I adore, long, lean and fashionable. The fold over top has scalloped trim which adds another touch that is greatly appreciated.

What I love is that Miu Miu planned each aspect of this bag. And with the thought process the bag ends up standing apart from the rest. In a saturated handbag market you either have to have a classic bag that appeals to everyone or find another way to grab a buyer’s attention. This clutch was able to grab my attention, make me do a double take, and got me clicking to look at detailed shots. That is precisely how you engage someone, so props to Miu Miu for this clutch. The clutch is big, considerably outsized, and offers interior compartments and an optional braided rope shoulder strap. Having an optional shoulder strap is always helpful, especially with the long shoulder drop which makes this a great evening bag but still leaves options for it as a day bag.

You can buy Miu Miu handbags at your favorite online shopping store Don’t miss it!

Gucci Briefcase for Workaholics

For those who go to work everyday with a lot of documents on hand, you need a fashionable briefcase. Try Gucci briefcase for spring and summer this year. But despite the name of this gorgeous briefcase, it also caters to men as well. Gucci is not at all feminine; just a pure alluringly fashionable briefcase. Gucci really knows how to make an edge through this Women’s Briefcase. And like other briefcases, it comes in a rectangular form.

Unlike other briefcases, however, this is crafted in white leather with dark nickel hardware. I guess the large metal closure buckle for the front pocket makes it more appealing. You may choose to carry it by hand or on your shoulders.

To those workaholics, teachers, well-organized professionals, or simply outstandingly fashionable and classy individuals, Gucci’s Women’s Briefcase is made for you!

Marc Jacobs Handbags for Spring 2010 Collection

I have a friend who is dying anticipating for Marc Jacobs handbags for  Spring 2010 collection. Well, for her, watch out for it soon. Marc Jacobs will surely surprise you of his beautifully made handbags. For basic information, here’s what I can give you guys.

Marc Jacobs has been consistent with softer color palette. In most of MJ’s collection, we noticed a lot of champagnes, light and medium blues, creams, and whites in the accessories collection. Many of the bags were made of multicolored lattice leather, sometimes in what looked to be several different textures – I definitely spy some python, at the very least.

There is Jacobs’ signature quilting too, with many of the quilts bearing forth rivets and tassels. As for me, I liked the addition of texture, but these are not my favorite bags of the show – the tassels and their cords looked like tentacles to me. Not a good look.

Finally, apparently fringe is not over yet, at least not in Marc’s mind. Many of the latticed bags had nearly a foot of fringe swinging from them in the similar colors that made up the bag’s body. We have a feeling that this will be shortened somewhat before the products are shipped to stores, but I didn’t hate it. In fact, quite the opposite – I thought that it was quite appropriate, considering the construction of many of the pieces .Leave it to someone like him to make us all take a second look at fringe.

Dolce & Gabbana Handbags for Spring/Summer 2010

Dolce & Gabbana Handbags for Spring/Summer 2010 was all about glam, fab in very eccentric Gothic and Victorian inspired collections.The Dolce and Gabbana Handbags concepts were mainly focus comparatively on coarse laces made by weaving or knotting cords, patterns and macramé handbags. They had a few new designs and variations of previous designs like the large flap handbag. This handbag is a design made last season but the colors, the materials used are new and the gold metal template as well.

I really love the nameplate as the other label, Louis Vuitton did.They added a nameplate to some of their handbags and the reviews were hugely accepted as it will be with the Dolce & Gabanna handbags. Jewel strap shoulder bags are also a repeated design and the fresh colors and materials used like raffia and knit.

I am a fan of Dolce & Dabanna and I am very particular with their collection every season. Im not familiar to the basket style bags and it seems this is new to the collection which aren’t very appealing in my fashion taste.

Generally, I still love the Dolce and Gabanna handbags collection. The collection is really great and the shoes added more color to the show. Have an eye on one of the D&G handbags below!
