Colors in a Bag

Fellow Bagaholics it is almost spring time and that means COLORS!!!!

I would like to introduce you to a FABULOUS bag designer, whose latest collection includes a delicious range of colors, perfect for Spring 2012.

Mary Nichols is a native Houstonian who at a very early age has been driven by her artistic abilities. She attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, achieving her BFA in studio art with a concentration in painting and photography – and continued her creative education at the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design in New York City, where she completed the AAS degree in fashion studies. Upon graduation, she pursued a career in fashion and worked in New York at fashion hubs Theory and Calvin Klein.

Mary returned to our fabulous city of Houston in 2008, where she launched her first collection.  Her line of modern totes and clutches are inspired by city living. Each bag is constructed from the finest quality leather and handmade in NYC.

New Header and Background Spring 2012

A new season, and new header and background! As usual, I choose a designer from Milan ( Alberta Ferretti), New York (Jason Wu),  Paris (Chanel), and London (Giles).

New Header and Background Fall 2011

It is still 100+ degrees outside but believe it or not fall is almost here, at least in the fashion world. So to get in the spirit I made the background for twitter and the header of the blog, for the Fall 2011 .

Once again I choose one designer from Paris (Elie Saab), Milan (Gucci),  New York (Calvin Klein), and London (Burberry Prorsum).

Hope you like them!
