I couldn't resist decorating my LED winter tree with Fendi Bag Charms. I've been collecting bag bugs for years and there is a special story to go with each one. I'm not gonna share my silly antics - My Fendi bag charm obsession was and is a little ridiculous.
These are my Fendi bag charms from Christmas' past - Kooky, Fur Me, Strangee, Karlito, an angry monster with red eyebrows (I don't remember the name), Birgami, Archy and the white fruits bag charm (pineapple). These furry bag charms aren't on trend anymore, but my obsession with these monsters is profound.
Oh and my Toy Poodle is captivated by them. He sits and stares at the tree hoping one will fall into his mouth. That's what Teddy does when he wants something - stares at it like he's using the force! He hasn't mastered telekinesis yet, but he's a determined little bear.

I LOVE bag accessories - this Prada heart plushie bag accessory (available at Farfetch) is the perfect Valentine's Day bag charm AND a lovely gift. This is the perfect Valentine's Day handbag charm to elevate your look and show everyone that you "care"!
I'm not the kinda girl that wants a fancy dinner, at the "best" restaurant in town on Valentine's Day. I wanna relax at home, have a home cooked meal and drink wine.. BUT, I'm still gonna dress for the occasion and get in to the Valentine's Vibe. These t-shirts are perfect for an at-home Valentine's dinner or humble get-together. You can pair them with sweatpants at home, a feminine skirt for dinner at a chic restaurant or denim and an oversized cardigan for a casual dinner.
This one is my favorite. The Love Moschino t-shirt dress dons a woman wearing pink alligator and blowing kisses. It's odd and I LOVE it! The striped, cotton t-shirt gives this dress a sporty vibe and is perfect for a casual Valentine's Day soiree.
This Dolce & Gabbana Love Is What You Want t-shirt (available at Farfetch) is perfect for February 14th (the most sought after, I wanna be in love day of the year). The text is fitting and the pop of color aligns with the traditional Valentines's Day theme.
I WANT THIS ONE (hint hint)! This MIU MIU heart embellished ring (available at MIU MIU) is gorgeous and a Valentine's Day gem. The silver ring is embellished with crystals and a dangling pearl. LOVE!
Chiara Ferragni glitter heart sneakers are stylish and fun. The silver and red heart glitter embellishments are perfect for Valentine's Day. Pair these sneakers with chic joggers or a t-shirt dress for an "I'm a fun, easy going kinda girl" Valentine's Day look.

It's my favorite time of the year - Fendi's Spring/Summer collection is trickling off the runway and hopefully, into my closet! I usually fall for too many items in the Spring/Summer collection and this season is no exception.
I'm obsessed with this green multi-accessory belt. It has a removable mobile phone pocket, multipurpose pouch and a gold-finish metalware key ring and clip. LOVE. This belt is also available in white, black and rust red.
I'm a huge fan of Fendi bag accessories and love the Strap You collection. This green leather shoulder strap has a removable cellphone pocket with a zipper closure and gold-finish metalware details. This strap is also available in black. I would pair this green multi-purpose strap with a pale pink or nude bag. I love the army green and pink color combination. I have to have this Strap You belt. HINT HINT..
I want this one too! This Strap You leather shoulder strap has a removable cellphone pocket with a zipper closure, gold-finish metalware, tone on tone leather details and the contrasting printed FF motif. This bag accessory is also available in white and a rusty orange. I would don the black and green across a white t-shirt or shirt dress.
This one is my favorite. The brown leather pockets belt bag is square shaped, with an adjustable belt. It has three multi-purpose pockets along the front and one pocket in the back with a zip closure. The matte "brown" calfskin looks like a dark beige to me - I love this nude shade. This belt bag also has gold-finish metalware. You can wear this belt bag around your waist, across your body or over your shoulder. LOVE! I want all four of these innovative Fendi designs.

If you browse my blog, then you would assume that I already purchased these items (all of them). I can't help myself - by the time I curate an 'I'm Coveting..' list, everything is in my online shopping bag, waiting for me to hit 'complete order'!
I LOVE these Chloé Carlina round sunglasses in silver and powder pink (available at Mytheresa). The braided, fine gold-tone metalwork is delicate and feminine. The frames are round and a bit oversized. The pink gradient lenses are pale and won't protect your eyes from the sun - BUT they look good. I'm a HUGE fan of Chloé sunglasses. The bohemian Chloé attitude is carefree and the variety of 'free spirit' sunglass styles evoke flower child charm.
I had no intention of buying new shoes when I went to Chloé on Madison in New York a few months ago, but you can't argue love at first site. These shoes were meant for me AND they're so comfy. The Chloé River wedge boot (available at Chloé) has a military look, but the corset-inspired lace-up vamp gives a feminine vibe. The laces are leather, so beware - these can stretch and break fairly easily. Pair these wedge boots with a t-shirt dress and the Chloé Roy double clutch handbag.
Yeah, I would go to the ends of the earth to procure a handbag - I had to engage Dutch friends in the Netherlands to get this one. This pink leather micro-bag by Fendi (available at Fendi) is super tiny and embellished with galvanized pearls. I love this Fendi handbag style and am super excited to get my first micro Peekaboo. While it's still on route, I've already made big plans for this tiny Peekaboo handbag.
Each season Fendi brings us new bag accessories - fur pom poms, mini bags (to attach to your bag) and this season, the Fendi Space Monkey (available at Fendi). This little bag accessory dons the signature Fendi print and has a leather headpiece embellished with galvanized pearls. SO CUTE! I put this on my Mother's Day wish list.. I trust my Toy Poodle is gonna come through!
James Smith slides (available at Shop Planet Blue) are simple and chic. The slip-on style comes with a leather or suede vamp and a thin sole. These fit nicely and go great with everything. I have a long road trip this summer and think these will be the perfect slide for those en-route days and site-seeing.
YUP, I have this one too. The Louis Vuitton Hot Springs backpack (available at Louis Vuitton) combines my two favorite LV Vernis leather colors - Amarante and Rose Ballerine. The backpack is small, but spacious inside AND has a pink lining. Backpacks are having a moment this season (especially mini backpacks). I was super lucky to land this bag. I'd seen it on the LV site, but it wasn't available. I casually walked into the Louis Vuitton store in New York some weeks later and there it was! That was a great day, BUT the very reason why I shouldn't visit New York often. I've been selling stuff on eBay ever since, trying to make up for the financial damage I caused!

Not sure who launched this fashion trend, but good on ya! Handbag accessories have been around a while - bag charms, mini bags attached to larger bags.. and while mismatched straps may not be new, it's mainstream presence is definitely a must-have in the fashion scene these days. I was first introduced to bag straps at Fendi in New York. There were so many designs, and each strap gave your bag a unique look. Of course, Fendi (my favorite accessory brand) exaggerates each strap with huge geometrical flowers, shapes and colors. AMAZING! Considering the detail and unique designs, the high ticket is definitely warranted (at Fendi).
Premiere designers aren't the only ones launching bag straps. Many contemporary (and less expensive) brands have incorporated this trend in their lineup. You don't have to have a premier designer bag to elevate your arm candy - a limited edition bag strap will do..
