Baby Phat Handbags Saturday, May 29 2010 

Now, anyone who knows me knows that I’m a GUESS girl through and through. When it comes to handbags, not much can distract me from the G label. Buuttt… I will admit to deviating from my obsession a few times. For a good quality, stylish but sexy handbag for everyday wear, I am GUESS all the way. But, when I want to funk it up a bit, make my outfits a little bit more playful… I turn to the Baby Phat range of handbags by mogul Kimora Lee Simmons.

The Baby Phat label is not only famous for its handbags, but also for shoes, clothing and accessories. That’s all good and well, but I am most taken with the outrageously over the top bags, not the other stuff!

The handbags are fun and quirky, certainly not demure in any way, shape or form. They range from approximately NZD$100 to around about NZD$500 – but in most cases, you are looking at the former rather than the latter. The bags are more often than not covered in bling, with shiny buckles, accessories and edgy designs. They look great with a simple jeans/boots/t-shirt combo, or to zest up a little black dress. These aren’t the bags for you if you wear a lot of colour or stand-out cuts, as it would just be waaaay too much. For those of you who spend most of your days in fairly simple attire? Baby Phat = WIN!

Have a look at some of the great designs to choose from!

Forearmed Is Arm-Warmed Monday, Nov 30 2009 

I like accessories that can make a really simple outfit POP. Great belts, a gorgeous handbag, even funky stockings (there are so many designs available its fantastic!). But my new jump up and down, get really excited fashion fad is Arm Warmers. 

No no no, stop right there! I can tell what you’re thinking! Probably exactly what I thought when I heard that word. I had an image of fluffy, cutesy woolen leg-warmers, except for the forearms. Thankfully, they aren’t like that. (Well, there ARE some like that but lets just forget about them!)

Arm Warmers are just another accessory, and don’t do anything practical except for – wait for it – warm your arms. (Amazing huh?) But other than that, they are just such FUN. You can get them in a million different colours, designs and cuts. They are available with diamantes or ribbons, images or plain. I think you get the drift. I like simple ones, pink and black stripes etc. But there are so many different designs that you can pick something that accentuates your personality. 

They are a little bit punk, and wont go with every outfit, but I think they really make you stand out! Have a look for them, they aren’t expensive and they are a bit of fun. A lot of shops sell them now and they are readily available online.
