Boho Chic Bags

I always envied Rachel Sacks in high school. She was one of those cool, bohemiem, artistic types way ahead of her time. She had a distinctive style all her own - she would mix a 50's skirt with an embroidered peasant blouse and wear goth makeup and still look fantastic. After college, she lived what I considered a glamorous life, working in places like Bangkok and opening up a night club in India.

A couple of years ago, she returned stateside, but her global lifestyle still burns brightly, reflected in her line of handbags. Handcrafted in India, these bags are boho chic without being granola. They have a luxurious flair to them, which is all Rachel. Here are some of my favorites, available on her website

Affordable Bling

Given the state of the economy these days, buying bling is out of the question for most people. Fred Flare has a poor man version that makes it affordable with a sense of humor. This 2 carat ceramic cup has a ring shaped handle adorned with a real Swarovski crystal. Makes quite a statement when you drink your cup of joe in the morning.
