Handbag du Jour - 5 new articles
Fresh off her SAG Awards win for ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series,’ “Orange Is the New Black” star Dascha Polanco was spotted having fun out in Los Angeles. The actress posted a pic on Instagram, posing for a quick pic at Lucy’s Room restaurant, dressed in a black leather moto jacket, a white tee and jeans. She accessorized with her signature greyish-purple hair, burgundy sandals and a chic little Navy Jeweled Mini Crossbody bag from Cynthia Rowley‘s new handbag collection!

Several of New York’s most fashionable ladies, Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jourdan Dunn, artist Rachel Feinstein and Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine, are teaming up with luxury house Fendi to give its iconic baguette a makeover! As Sex and the City fans know, SJP as ‘Carrie Bradshaw‘ helped put the Fendi baguette on the fashion map. Model Jourdan has strutted her stuff down the Fendi runways. And Rihanna has toted and/or owns more Fendi bags than probably all of the ladies combined!
Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi have given these fashionistas full access to the design studio so that they can reinvent the new Fendi 3Baguette bag – “a style launched at the end of last year that reinterprets the Fendi accessory with a more structured shape and the FF logo becoming a lock rather than simply a decorative element,” according to WWD. Since each lady has her own unique sense of style, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of customized Fendi each of them comes up with. Will Rihanna create something edgy and trendy? Will SJP design a clutch with a ladylike feel? Will Leandra opt for a look that’s more androgynous? We can’t wait to see the final products!
Each bag will be unveiled at a cocktail party and then displayed at the new flagship Fendi store on Madison Avenue in New York, from February 13 and March 13. Afterwards, the bags will be auctioned off via a dedicated online auction site, launch3baguetteauction.fendi.com, with proceeds going to each woman’s selected charity:
Rihanna: The Clara Lionel Foundation

I admit – when the Rockstud collection first made its debut, even though I loved it (especially the shoes), I gave it a season or two before the trend would be over. But oh, how wrong I was! After several years, the Valentino Rockstud is still going strong. The brand keeps innovating on the collections and they get better and better each season. For Valentino Resort 2015, the colors of the rainbow have been painted on the now iconic shoes and tons of handbags as well. They’re so beautiful and bright and on my wish list. There are so many luscious options to choose from, including minaudieres, clutches and totes, double handle bags, shoulder bags and backpacks.
Valentino Medium Crystal Rockstud Lock Bag
Made of a gorgeous slate-gray leather lambskin, this triangular shaped clutch features an artistic black acrylic frame topped with an ivory cube, giving it a retro look. It closes at the top with a magnetic clasp fastening and tucks perfectly into a larger tote or under your arm. It would look great against a solid colored dress, like red or pink for a cool colorblock look.
