Shame on Cinched and my never ending love affair for arm candy. No, I don't mean the blonde man models in town for fashion week I've been creeping on, I mean the good old concoctions of leather and stitching that hold all my daily essentials, yeah, the handbag. As most would say I shouldn't pair a GV gathered jersey cocktail dress with a mega bag, I respond: to hell with you, I've got stuff to stuff in this four colored mini luggage tote (go to NM Galleria and ask for Nikki, she will make it happen).

Cinched and her home gurlz spent the evening at Fashion Houston's second night. I found out one of my ladies is also a bag hag, like me...Lauren paired a marigold Yigal Azrouel number with a 1973 top handled bag. Most importantly, Lauren has brought our attention to the appreciation of a classic. Oldie but a goodie must have been the thought behind Gucci's 1973 redesigns. As most of this year's fall collections have demonstrated a 1970's spirit, Gucci's handbags have as well. Drawing inspiration from the fashion house's collection of that era, the 1973 bags make a timeless arm candy piece.
