The early noughties brought us so many wonderful (and embarrassing) fashion trends.

From Juicy track suits to low rise jeans, we will forever be in awe of the hilarious ensembles we wore to our favourite teen discos.

We have to admit though, our favourite of all noughties trends was the prolific CORSET BAG.

We can try to deny it, but corset bags were the coolest bloody thing going, and we all wanted one. 

Well, thanks to Zara, the corset bag is making a major comeback, and we are really happy about it. 

Zara’s take on this ICONIC bag is real suede, and will set you back €65… small price to pay, in our opinion. 

We are not ashamed to admit it: we want one of these babies. 



If you thought North West was the only Kardashian grandkid with an ultra-luxe wardrobe, you'd be wrong.

Penelope Disick was spotted out and about in Los Angeles this week, toting her very own Hermès Baby Birkin bag.

Emphasis on the word 'baby,' because little Penelope is only three.

The youngster was accompanying her mum Kourtney Kardashian and baby brother Reign on some errands, and was working some serious outfit co-ordination in her black and pink ensemble.

At €7,500 a pop, it's unlikely Penelope bought her new bag with pocket money, but given her grandma Kris's obsession with Baby Birkins it could well have been a Christmas present from her.

The Kardashian momager took to Instagram last year to tell fans how much she loved the mini versions of the hugely popular Hermès design.

Of course, it's not only Penelope who was working some high-end fashion on the family outing – Kourtney's black-lace up St. Laurent ankle boots retail at a cool €830.

Quite the mum-and-daughter fashion duo.


We are a little disappointed because we have just managed to overcome the fascination of matching shoes and handbags.

It takes a lot for us to part with our favourite cosmetics and a night out is not an occasion where we are willing to leave them behind. Three separate lip glosses in varying shades are a must and don’t you dare try and tell us otherwise.

Then someone comes along and invents this gem and it’s all over, done.

The Sassy Stash is exactly the kind of accessory you dream up when you’re stuck in traffic in a taxi and can’t for the life of you get your clutch to close. Don’t pretend you haven’t been there.

It’s not the worst looking gadget we’ve come across in recent times. Clearly the Sassy Stash is designed with just the bare essentials in mind however.

We don’t think you’ll be trying to strap your new camera to your thigh next weekend, there’s also the issue of keys. That might not be the most comfortable when you’re doing your best Beyoncé moves in the club.

We think that there is certainly potential for this to take off, but there might be some things to take into consideration.



In possibly the strangest news of the day, something very weird is happening to Hermes Birkin handbags, and customers are not happy.

According to reports today, customers have been returning their notoriously expensive arm candy, complaining that the leather smells like marijuana!

Yes, you read that correctly.

Concerns were raised when a ‘badly tanned’ collection of the handbags – some of which can cost up to $20,000 – arrived at a boutique, with customers later returning the luxury items over the nasty smell.

Before anyone starts to think that there might be some funny business going on at the Hermes factory, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation!

Apparently – due to aforementioned ‘bad tanning’ – the leather used to create the bags can sometimes give off an unpleasant smell when placed in direct sunlight.

A source told Page Six that the famous fashion house are pretty mortified about the whole thing, saying: “The bags are being sent back to Paris as nobody knows quite how to deal with this embarrassing situation.”

The Hermes bag, beloved of celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian, is one of the most hotly-coveted items among fashion lovers, so we doubt this will do much to tarnish the brand’s reputation.




Following the loss of creative designer Emma Hill, it was no secret that luxury handbag company Mulberry were in some difficulty.

Hill was responsible for the rise in sales of Mulberry’s expensive handbags thanks to the likes of the Alexa and Del Ray bags among others.

The designer made the beautiful bags accessible to everyday women, not just the wealthy.

She has not yet been replaced within the company.

The thing about Mulberry handbags was that if a fashionable woman decided she wanted one, she could save for one, they were attainable.

The appointment of CEO Bruno Guillon in 2012 changed this. It was decided the brand would aim for the super-wealthy.

By upping prices and using more expensive fabrics, they alienated their biggest market.

Now it looks as if the brand is paying the price. It was announced yesterday that Guillon would step down as CEO and the company’s chairman Godfrey Davis would take the helm.

Can they save the luxury handbag brand? We hope so!



Fancy a Tony the Tiger handbag? Or maybe a Daz bag? A pack of digestives or rich tea dangling off your favourite satchel?

We didn’t think so. Anya Hindmarch’s AW’14 collection was presented at this season’s fashion week in London and was inspired by “finding beauty in the banal”.

While we’re all for unorthodox fashion and taking risks, we can’t help but feel we could empty out the contents of a Frosties box and just carry that around with us for a cheaper and perhaps more vintage feel.

Then again, it worked for Andy Warhol and the tin of Cambell’s soup so maybe she’s onto something.

Love ’em or hate ’em, these girls are going places in the fashion world!

The youngest Jenner girls will be launching a handbag and shoes range called Madden Girl with the highly successful fashion company that will, according to the girls, be available soon.

Kendall uploaded the image above to her Instagram account saying: “So excited to announce that Kylie and I have been working on a new shoe and handbag collab with @SteveMadden for Madden Girl! It will be available at @Nordstrom soon! #KendallKylieMaddenGirl”.

The announcement comes shortly after the sister’s stunning collection for Pacsun was released.

At this rate Kendall and Kylie will be more famous than their sisters and are both still teenagers!
