This mid-morning cappuccino and our Dimple Slip On Clutch - two things I am majorly feeling right now. In fact, this crossbody clutch is so chic and on-trend that it just might be my current favorite of the whole collection. I love how extremely wearable it is in black and pewter, though I also adore it in black and gold for a dressier look that feels so high end. Love it.

Scrolling through my Instagram feed the other day, I caught a sparkling glimpse of our gold Vienna Bag, photographed by The Sartorialist at NYFW! No tag, no hashtags, just perfect timing... it's amazing that I even discovered this. It turns out that this model off-duty beauty is none other than stylist Sarah Slutsky, who picked up her Vienna Bag at Anthropologie as a birthday treat for herself. She paired it with winter whites, headed to the Jason Wu show at New York Fashion Week, and the rest is internet history. Love her!

Coffee break. Two words that can give a boost to an otherwise sluggish Monday. My favorite pick-me-up is a lowfat cappuccino - two shots, plenty of foam, never decaf. To give a boost to your Monday outfit, our new Calf Hair Crossbody Bag comes in three bold prints and doubles as a stylish clutch. Pair the clutch with a cappucino and you can conquer the world. Or at least your Monday.

The new Serpents Minaudiere is our latest take on the Whiting & Davis snake legacy and we absolutely love it, don't you? Turning heads from here to Australia (where this stunning closeup was taken by the stylish crew at Brisbane boutique Calexico Australia), this exotic clutch is seen here with Katie Rowland rings and can be dressed up or down for wherever the evening takes you.



Whiting&Davis vintage look handbag
Thursday 06.06.13

I was looking through my collection of 20s and 30s Whiting & Davis bags for something really special to post for Throwback Thursday this week and came across this one.  It's not exactly vintage, though... It's actually one of the first bags I designed for Whiting & Davis back in 2001... wow.  Time has flown!  I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with this effort.  The design was painstakingly engineered to follow exactly along the edge of the bag and even meet neatly at the sides- I remember driving the sample makers nuts about that!  The Art Deco style frame was an original Whiting & Davis frame from the 20s that we had remade and it perfectly suits the graphic  Starburst design. All in all a lovely bag.

We don't do as many vintage style bags as we used to with the trend toward more clean, architectural lines in fashion, but I hope the renewed interest in vintage flapper styles that the Great Gatsby movie has unleashed results in more demand for these types of bags.  I'd love to do more of them.
