Shoulder Bags for the Christmas

Manolo says, the Manolo he has decided to do the purse blogging for the Christmas, so that perhaps his gentlemen readers will have some idea of what the womens in their lives may appreciate. Trust the Manolo, nothing says “Merry Christmas, Honey, Your Husband He is Not the Clueless Lout!” like the appearance of the designer bag under the festive tree.

Hogan Handbags Fall - Winter 2005/06

The Manolo, he absolutely adores this suede shoulder bag with the shearling trim from the Hogan. It is very, very rico suave, so muy rico suave that the Manolo he feels he could crawl inside and take up the residence in it’s capacious, yet cozy confines. This it is the winter bag that will be brought out each year at the first hint of the tiniest nip in the air, so eager will she be to carry it.

Here is another of this season’s unstructured shoulder bags in the suede, this one from the Pollini. For the Manolo it is the details of the contrasting leather on the straps for the shoulder that make this stand out from the crowd.

    Ah, as a man I say this is the siznetz. You don’t have to worry about the size your forgot to right down, color co-ordination is not a real big problem.
    I advise the cutting out of adds and the downloading of same to printers to leave out where they can be seen. Drop verbal hints, “Oh pooh, my favorite hand bag is wearing out an the good ones are just out of my budget.” Look into a hand bag and say,” Uh-oh the lining is torn. It would cost me more than the bag is worth to get it repaired. Oh dear, the most fabulous fantastic hand bag is on sale, but I don’t have the -time-money-etc. to be there for the sale! Oh, well.”

    I love that Falchi bag, and it looks big enough to carry around the ton of stuff I require. Now I just have to persuade someone to buy it for me….
