Juicy Couture never fails to come up with new and fun styles for their purses. This season, they are bringing back the wild side with their animal print designs! Just like other brands, Juicy Couture has included some animals prints to their collection. However, unlike other brands, Juicy Couture has made theirs above the ordinary with their signature material – velour and intricate details.

This Cheetah Lady Satchel made of soft, rich verlour¬† almost gives you the illusion of touching the real fur. Yet, it doesn’t stop there. With its vibrant color,¬† luxurious leather detailing, and golden hardware, this satchel will be a great accessory to complete your look this season. You can also choose the cheetah-print cross body bag or the daydreamer tote.

On the other hand, this Croc-embossed NYC shoulder bag may come as neat and elegant at first glance, but take a closer look. Its crocodile texture takes velour and animal prints to a whole new Juicy level! Details like leather top handles and extended tabs, golden hardware, logo fabric lining, and “Juicy” embroidery just make this purse even more irresistible. This design is available in desert (neutral) or black crocodile-embossed velour.

So, for less than a hundred dollars, you could wear a timepiece that you have half-created.


Rue La La! January 14, 2010

Websites that offer great discounts on fabulous designer brands are enticing. I have signed up for several of those websites but I have mostly been disappointed. The prices were still high, the sale items were not great at all, or the websites just looked suspicious.

However, Rue La La is one e-commerce company that I love to check every now and then. Not only does the website feature great name brands like Gucci and D&G but also carries different items- apparel, footwear, jewelry, home items, and even cruises! Another good thing about this website is that members can view the featured brands from days ahead so there is no reason one could miss a great sale.Most of all, the discounts are great, for as low as 50%.

Here are some of the great sale I found today.

Giuseppe Zanotti Black Suede & Patent Satchel. Original Price: $1,140. Now: $299

Skagen Denmark Men’s Black Leather Watch. Original Price: $110. Now: $45

Junior Drake “Marlene” Cashew Leather Hobo. Original Price: $278. Now: $79

I had made a purchase in the past so I can say the website is reliable. Items usually ships in 9-10 business days in the United States. If you want to check it out, go to and sign up now.
