The above purses are variations of Jane Shilton’s Extended Gusset Tassle Bag. This is probably the most daring of all what Jane Shilton has made, which is not saying much in general (but it is if you see her entire collection). As I was looking through what I wanted to review from her’s, of course this bag stood out. First of all, it had TASSELS. I don’t really look for tassels on anything, but none of her other bags have them. A lot of them have buckles for sure, and they look very professional.
This bag was like made for the Polo-wearing prep going on vacation. I at first thought about that imagery, because I had misread the name of the bag to say “Extended GUEST Tassel Bag.” It also has two of the primary colors. I was thinking about whether the position and size of those tassels were awkward, but now I do think they should be exactly how they are. The tassels make this bag have a certain personality, and I do like them. What do you think?

Ah, I love this combination, don’t you? Pastel leather and gold is such a classy mix. You could easily make a neutral-colored outfit ready for spring by accessorizing with some sweet pastels. Feryal just released their 2013 Spring/Summer high end handbag collection, and the Venice leather crossbody bags in cobalt and blush are my favorites.
I love that the gold chain is long enough to be a crossbody. That is definitely a plus for me. I keep wishing some shoulder bag straps were just a tad longer. For some reason, having the strap lay across your body makes it look more casual. Perhaps it’s because when you’re on the go, not in a cocktail dress, you just can’t keep being bothered by the bag slipping off your shoulder. I had that dilemma today shopping with a shoulder bag with a shorter strap.

I’m sure as avid online shoppers, you are always looking for a deal online, but it’s very hard to find prices that match prices as low as flea markets’. I stumbled upon “wholesale” fashion sites awhile back, and I was always skeptical about them. First of all, a lot of them sell replica designer stuff. I wouldn’t recommend them for that reason. However, some sell “designer-inspired” or just trendy fashion items (mostly from China handbags) for rock bottom prices. These bags are distributed in places like Walmart or eBay and are completely legal. Still with that in mind, I was hesitant. I was until I saw one of my favorite people online buy most of her clothes from wholesale Japanese or Korean online shops. That sure did get me curious, but I have yet to try buying from a trusted source.
Slotanna is one of my sponsors who sells cheap handbags wholesale. I posted some of my favorites on here. You don’t have to buy more than one to get a good deal. The wholesale price still applies for one purchase. Of course, the more you buy, the bigger the discount. This is how these wholesale websites usually go. Perhaps you’d like to try buying from one, and let me know about your experience!
