After 3 days of being stuck in bed, down with the flu, I decide to surf today and check out the latest in the world of fashion for inspiration and for the sheer joy of it. Much to my delight, I stumbled upon Bottega Veneta's Fall-Winter'11 Campaign. I'm not that much of a Bottega fan, but I must admit, this campaign made me squeal in delight. Shot by renowned photographer, Robert Polidori [famous for his artistic and human habitat works] the campaign exudes an old world charm where the romanticism of fashion and art collide. Shot in Venice, the campaign brings out the essence of Bottega'sF/W'11 collection - classic, timeless and uber chic! Makes me want to run down to the nearest Bottega store and grab a piece of perennial haute couture!

5 Must Have a.Bags: THE EVENING CLUTCH

Following the 5 Must Have a.BagsSeries would be the 3rd write-up on the must have bags every woman should not be caught without - the Evening Clutch.  The Evening Clutch is actually a +1 bag in the series as it’s a category purely for women. This piece is a must have for ladies everywhere.  It is a classic article that every woman should invest in – dare I say a piece that can be considered a future heirloom for your [present or future] little princesses.  Aesthetic wise, I personally believe that an evening clutch should be the understated piece in a woman’s evening arsenal.  This way, you and your dress stand out vs. your evening clutch grabbing the attention.  Nonetheless, there are occasions when a statement evening clutch is a necessity so investing in 2 clutches would be worth it.

Ideally a clutch should be small enough in size so that it won’t over power your evening look, but rather act as an oversized accessory.  Do note, it should have enough space to fit in some cash, cards, and a small phone plus your must have touch up supplements.

Looking at the available options out there, I personally think that there are 2 brands worth mentioning [and considering].

1. Bottega Veneta’s Knot Clutch – need I say more?  It’s simply a must have.  A design as elegant and classic as time.  I fell in love with this clutch when I saw Meryl Streep elegantly clasping on to this famed piece of beauty in the movie It’s Complicated.

Enough said.  Ladies, just go get your own piece and rock it!

2. Chanel Mademoiselle Mini in KarungBlake Lively endorsing this timeless design is enough reason for me.  Her beauty is as classic as this piece – with enough spunk to carry on for generations. Available in various luscious shades and scrumptious leather – take your pick but I must say this red one is a stunner.

3. Chanel Wallet on a Chain – There’s just something about this specific design that I had to feature it.  Maybe it’s the photo treatment or plainly because it’s Chanel.  But whatever the reason is, this beauty is a keeper.  Come to think of it, should there even be any reason?
