Lina Rennell Totes at Of a Kind

by Tina on March 13, 2012

I bought a Lina Rennell Tote a few months back at Beklina, with a Refinery29 Reserve voucher, and I love it. I love it so much I’m thinking about buying another one at Of a Kind, in one of these two exclusive prints…


Pre-Order: SSWTR Multi-Color Bag

by Tina on July 21, 2011

Total budget buster, but this DREAMY multi-color bag by Slow and Steady Wins the Race is available for pre-order.

…Oh, and it’s $4,000.

I cherish my supple, toned-down-chic Clare Vivier Messenger Tote and get comments on the color daily. I actually bought this particular color straight from the designer herself months back, as I had spotted it in the look book but couldn’t find it online. Apparently, there weren’t any left, save for one lone straggler which I claimed immediately. Brooklyn-based Thistle & Clover has expanded their Web shop (yay!), and look what I found

P.S.: Clare has the bag back in stock on her site as well, but it’s slightly less expensive at Thistle & Clover.


A’N’D No Valuables Inside Doctor Bag

A’N’D No Valuables Inside Doctor Bag, $375

This bag speaks to all of you, like me, who carry a handbag that’s worth more than the contents inside. Someone stole my $500 purse a few years back, and all that was in it was Rosebud Salve, used tissue + a bottle of Chanel Nail Polish.


Lookbook Lovin’: PoeiOei Summer 2010

I typically gravitate towards simple, toned-down handbags, but these wild bags from Indonesian designer PoeiOei’s new collection TOTEM are changing that gravitational pull.



Handbag Obsession: CLAREVIVIER

by Tina on April 12, 2010

I’m picky when it comes to handbags. I’m not into trends, require great quality and am on a budget. Kind of daunting huh?! Thankfully, I met my handbag soul mate when I discovered CLAREVIVIER, a collection of timeless handbags produced in Los Angeles.


With classic styles like the Messenger Tote, Mini Sac, Remake Clutch and Canvas Work Tote — designer Clare really nails that perfect blend between Parisian chic and affordable luxury. Most styles hover between $200 – $300, which in my opinion is a great price for a bag of this caliber.


I bought one…

Jewelry Bite: Tina Frey

by Tina on February 22, 2010

tinafrey1Google Tina Frey and you’ll be asked if you meant “Tina Fey”. But if you keep searching you’ll find designer Tina Frey’s gorgeous hand-sculpted resin jewelry, vases, and other great pieces, not the 30 Rock star. I quickly fell in love with one of her Macy bubble necklaces but was just as impressed with her white flower necklace, and while it’s not her characteristic translucent resin…her new leather handbag collection, made to order.


Shop the collection online at or in Portland at Una.
