Melie Bianco Bags Baby (And me using the world Fabulous too many times...)

Let me just say that I LOVE handbags.  Way more than shoes.  Give me some target flats or whatever, and a fab bag...and I'm better than fantastic!  I was perusing the People Mag dedicated to fashion happenings and I came across a bag that I LURVED.  I have decided to stray from my beloved known designer bags and venture into unknown territory.  Well unknown to me and most other people I see on a regular basis.  Enter Melie Bianco.

Lets face it Nashville is not the fashion capital of the world.  That being said, there are a lot of fashionable people here.  One of my yelp buddies Marcia (a fabulous one) just participated in Nashville Fashion Week, and one of my favorite designers Christian Sariano was there (which rocks).   I'm glad to report it was successful and fabulous! 

However, it would have been nice to have some plus sized fashion fabulousness represented in some way.  A size twelve somewhere on some promotional piece.  There are many real women in Nashville, small, medium, large, extra large, and extra extra extra large.  I was not checking for the designers who do not design for me.  I guess as usual, my Fab Flab isn't "high fashion".  ::stepsoffsoapbox::

With that said, the point of the whole thing was to give back to those with artistic vision and passion for the arts.  We know they don't always get the funds needed to make the world a beautiful place.  All of the proceeds from fashion week went to the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund to support artists in the industry with Middle Tennessee ties.  Even though I complain all the time about wishing I was back in my beloved Maryland/D.C/Va...Nashville has a lot to offer. 

I digress. This post is about the fabulousness and affordability of Melie Bianco bags.  So lets get to the show.

This comes in three colors, and for $81.00 I can afford the white one too!

This is so delicious.  You know what is also delicious.  The fact that it is $58.00.  Fifty eight bucks!

Object of my desires. 
          Drool worthyness.             
This cross over ditty is $72.00, and I would pay for it.  I'm going to pay for it actually.  I need it to wear with my 2.50 Old Navy Flip Flops.  And you all need to check out Melie Bianco STAT!

What kind of handbags are you loving right now???!!


  1. I must say that I'm quite partial to this designer's name...Bianco...very much like Bianca!

  2. Let me dig up the purses I have been digging on. I am a total girlie girl, so it was kind of a surprise to me that i was loving this. it is kind of...not masculine, but not overly feminine:


    I have this in the cream color.. I now need it in the purple:

  3. i got a great deal on a kate spade a few months ago. it's leather and the best part... it's color - a deep eggplant with contrasting green fabric on the inside! snatched it up for $180 from $400!
