glitzyclutchesCould it be the holiday music I heard today while out and about that got me in the mood for anything and everything sparkly?

I'm not sure.

However, one thing is for certain — these glitzy clutches have my eye (and my heart). So posh!

From top to bottom, my favorites of the season are Matthew Williamson's green suede embellished clutch, Lanvin's suede and lizard-effect leather shoulder bag and Versace's crystal-embellished suede clutch. Ironically, they are all suede. Honestly though, it's the fabulously amazing detail that really gets me.

One fancy little clutch goes so far — from girls night out to art-inspired event to black tie affair!

Glitzy never seemed so practical!

It seems I never tire of the duffel bag. And Alexander Wang's version for fall is a classic. Gorgeous, don't you think?

A timeless beauty, truly.

The Pelican Satchel has a hard shell, adjustable shoulder strap, signature dog clip details and gold hardware. It comes in a weekender size, too.

Ooh la la! Must I have?

Oh, Rebecca. You know just what a girl wants.

Plush leather. Vibrant color. Impeccable detail. And then some!

Leave it to Rebecca Minkoff to stimulate your senses with her fabulous handbags for summer. Like this orange little number with pointed stud detail along the sides and bottom, topped off with a tassel zipper. It's not called Flirty for nothing! And the Paramour in lilac is functional, stylish and totally luxe. The quality of these handbags are top notch — even the lining and dust covers are decked out in a polka dot print.

This collection of handbags will no doubt make your must have list this summer.

Soft, scrumptious leather. Just looking at this relaxed duffle makes me want one. And the pure white color really gears me up for Resort 2013.

Another fantabulous find from 3.1 Phillip Lim, the Lark bag can be worn in multiple ways and go with everything you can imagine. Though, you'll have to wait until November to get your hands on one.
With the brilliant colors of the season, there is no doubt I have my eye on a handbag or two (or five). Scrumptious textures. Functional shapes. And various sizes and structure. What to choose?

When selecting a handbag, scale should be the underlying factor. Too large — your bag takes you over. Too small — visual balance is completely thrown off. Get the scale right, then it's all about love.

In fact, the right handbag finds you. Much like choosing a puppy!
