Review: Lux de Ville

Monday, February 22, 2010

In 2003, Lux De Ville had a mission to produce fabulous handbags for fabulous women. Lux De Ville achieved that mission and is one of the most fashion-forward handbag brands today. By combining retro love, a dash of punk rock and a little rock and roll with a lot of quality, Lux De Ville handbags are for the young as well as the young-at-heart.

Lux De Ville makes a plethora of wonderful handbag styles and silhouettes. Lux De Ville proudly offers totes, hobos, clutches, day bags, weekenders and cosmetic cases. With all of Lux De Ville’s designs, there is a sense of individuality, art, and vintage appeal. Lux De Ville adds tattoo inspired designs to their styles, keeping you looking young and chic.

Whether you are going to a rock concert or a luncheon with the ladies, Lux De Ville has the perfect handbag for you. Looking sophisticated with a punk twist is the goal Lux De Ville is proud to have achieved. Lux De Ville will continue to create fun, new handbag styles and designs for the punk girl inside all of us.




I'm a long time admirer of the Lux de Ville handbags. With their anything but ordinary style, it is hard to not fall in love with their collection. The Sin City Motor Tote in Pink Sparkle ($72) and Starlite Wallet - Pink Sparkle ($35) that I received suits my style personality well with their impeccable girly and vibrant style. They are a nice addition to my ever expanding handbag collection. Both have been frequent fliers in my handbag rotation ever since I received them!

The Sin City Motor Tote in Pink Sparkle features an inside zipper pocket to stash all of your must haves, leopard lining, oversized dice charms, a top zipper closure and a front pocket for easy access to all of your goodies. This handbag is roomy for all of my essentials. I adore it! The quality of this handbag is impressive as the style of it. I believe that this pin-up worthy beaut could handle constant wear and tear AND still look good!



Starlite Wallet - Pink Sparkle has several inside card slots, a zipper pocket for change, leopard satin lining and a clear window for flashing your id. It matches the Sin City Motor Tote in Pink Sparkle perfectly, but it also sparkles on its own.

Also Available in Red and Leopard, Red Sparkle, Gold Sparkle and Silver Sparkle

Review: Alex & Ani

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Alex and Ani's mission is to design products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. Alex and Ani''s collections reflect a design aesthetic that celebrates each wearer's unique essence. Owner and designer Carolyn Rafaelian believes it is her life's work to inspire her customers to relish what is unique and authentic about themselves. Alex and Ani''s artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within.



John Lennon said it best - "All you need is love." The Crazy Love Expandable Wire Bangle in Russian Gold ($21) that I received beautifully illustrates that with the LOVE charm. I wear bracelets more than any other kind of jewelry, and this one is one of my favorites! This bracelet slides on easily without a clasp that most bracelets have, and it fits my wrist perfectly! You can wear it alone or layer it for a more personalized look. Available in Russian Gold and Russian Silver.

Review: Jewelry by LuShae

Saturday, February 06, 2010

LuShae has a stunning collection of individually handcrafted jewelry. They specialize in cultured freshwater and saltwater pearls, precious and semi-precious gemstones, and precious metals. Their range will undergo a revamp over the coming weeks to include exciting and exclusive new styles and designs.



I had my choice to review anything from LuShae. The options were seemingly endless. I chose the Yellow Tear Drop Pendant ($73), and it is just as gorgeous in person! The pendant is very striking, and looks very beautiful on the wearer. It suits my style well. Best of all, it is affordable! The tear drop pendant features a breathtaking pave clear CZ on its bail and around the pear cut yellow CZ. White Gold Rhodium Bond is achieved using an electroplating process that coats the item with heavy layers of rhodium, a close cousin of platinum that costs three times as much, which gives their jewelry a platinum luster.

Review: Vegan Chic

Friday, February 05, 2010

Purveyors of vegan shoes, vegan boots, and vegan bags. Vegan Chic brings you a massive line of stylish and practical animal-friendly shoes, bags and apparel. They believe their name 'Vegan Chic' illustrates their core belief that you can be vegan and still be fashionable and glamorous. They hope to bring you, not only great vegan shoes and vegan bags, but the widest possible selection of vegan apparel.

So, whether you're looking to strut your stuff in vegan boots, vegan shoes, vegan pumps, vegan clogs, or vegan sandals, you have found the vegan store for you. Gone are the days of heartbreak when you spotted your dream shoes in a store window only to find they were made of leather or had leather soles. This is a compassionate vegetarian's shopping paradise! In just a few clicks, you'll find every shoe style that fits your need, being assured they are completely vegan shoes. They do all the checking for you. Their shoes do not contain leather, suede, wool or silk.



The Vegan Fashion Boots ($52.99) that I received are super cute AND comfortable! I normally wear a size 9, but their selection was limited before they were all long gone. So I requested for the size 10. I haven't worn a 10 in ages, but these boots surprisingly fit me perfectly! These boots feature a moderate heel, stylish round toe and have a sweater-type fabric covering the 6 ½ inch shaft. You’ll fall in love with the accented straps and buckle, and the stunning pleather. I hope that this boot makes a comeback in other colors as well. I wouldn't mind having them in black or chocolate!

They also have another pair of boots that I love, and that is the Vegan Patent Dress Heel ($56.95). However, they only have a pair in a size 6½.
