New Tod's Pashmy D-Bag & Award

First of all, I want to thank the super lovely Jules at Chic and Pink for this award. Thank you sweetie, you make my day.
“A Sushi Grade Blog Award is fresh, lively and of superior quality. It is rare, has character and is of good taste”. It requires the nomination of 5 blogs. I like to pass this onto:
The Clothes Horse
Tiffany at I am Stylish
The lovely gals at Asian Cajuns
CC at Couture Carrie
Janet Taylor at Janetteria


There is a special weak spot for me with Tod's shoes and bags. After seeing my family with their blue and black Pashmy D-bags, I have been itching to add one to my bag collection. So my dream is fulfilled with this gold/beige color lovely. It's just so perfect for spring, summer and fall. I don't know if I will use this keep of winter but living in So Cal, I guess I can.
Initially I wanted the black or the gray but gold/beige color is so much more versatile. This is a classic Tod's which is still in production, just different colors. I think black is still available and there is a lighter blue available at Saks. Even though it's nylon but the material is very refine.
The bag weights almost nothing which is good for my shoulders. I have bags weighing as much as 8 to 10 pounds after filling the bag with my stuff. It can be trying after a few hours. There are pockets out front for keys and such. But to be honest, not all the front pockets are deep enough to store things.There is no zipper to close the top but the 2 side toggles make this tote relatively secure.
This tote will be perfect with my new gold Kor studded leather sandals and Armani dress. I am happy going into this weekend. So what bag are you coveting right now? My friend wants a Bottega Veneta hobo.

  9. Congrats on the award - well-deserved!

    Oh, what a gorgeous bag. I am simply smitten with the color.

    Me...I will forever be dreaming of the Balenciaga City Bag. It is the bag of my dreams. I even have pictures of it posted on my wall at work. Yes, I'm obsessed! :)

  13. Oooh, so you did end up getting the Tods bag! It looks so much prettier in your photos! And it definitely looks light and versatile. I'm very indecisive regarding my next bag purchase. I've been thinking of a Balenciaga (though I already have one, but I need a bigger day bag) or perhaps a Givenchy. But I think I'll wait for the Sales to see if something catches my eye!

  20. I am not a HUGE bag gal but these are lovely. Thank goodness for my husband who's a metrosexual and has bought me a few really good ones but I don't ever buy myself any.

    Thanks for your visit awhile back. I don't believe I have been by....

  21. Amazing bag - I'm coveting the Kooba Halle bag (cuz that's my last name and the bag is rad). I'm watching one in red on Ebay, just not sure if I am ready to part with the money (spent so much this week, ack!)

  22. Love your bag...makes me want to go shopping :)

  23. The weight of bags is very important for me too. I always carry cotton totes to preserve my back.

  25. Just looking at that bag makes me smile. I love the material, I agree about bag weight. I actually just bought a Linea Pelle bag on sale & brought it back because it's weighed down so much by its hardware!

  26. SG, I have the black one and love it but now I want the one you have. Want to trade later on?

  28. congrats for the award. wow..i wish i have a cute bag like you...i'm so jealous!!!

  29. Nice bag! i have an exact same one..the fabric's so light but feels so rich..and I love the fact that it doesn't have a zip top closure (cos i often stretch out my left hand to reach for stuff in the bag and zippers will scratch my watch- my LV Tivoli does just that). Enjoy!

Love to hear your thought.....
