Lust or Must-Haves: Hermes' Jige Clutch & Louis Vuitton's Mahina

Like any fashionistas out there, we all have our lists of lust or must-have items so from time to time, we'll feature some of our fave items that we've been drooling over lately=P

Linda's lust item: Hermes Jige Clutch

When I first saw a pic of Olivia Palermo (NYC socialite who dresses so impeccably well) with this Hermes clutch, my jaw dropped. The iconic H sign on the clutch can be spotted a mile away as the coveted Hermes stamp. After some researching I found out that it was a crocodile Jige vintage clutch which is obviously waaay over my budget but I did find out that there is the leather version of it. I die. It comes in two different sizes and I have yet to see which size I like but this is definitely on the very top of my lust list.

Melanie's lust item: Louis Vuitton's Mahina bag

I've been eyeing this bag for what seems like forever now and was even hoping to have purchased it last year when I was in Paris. However, it was practically sold out over there especially in the small size; hence, the purchase of Chanel's 2.55 reissue bag in its replacement.

I've seen this bag come in an assortment of colors: black, saffron, white, metallic grey, elephant grey, light grey, metallic bronze, brown, bordeaux and even denim-color. My fave colors are the light grey and bordeaux. *DROOL* - Excuse me while I wipe the drool off. However, the bordeaux color in small is soooo hard to find - le sigh!

I have never been an LV fan until I saw this bag and what drew me to it is the slouchy-ness of the bag. I just love love the look of it and have such a huge weakness for anything hobo-like. I even have an old BCBG bag that resembles the slouchy-ness of the mahinas, but it just wasn't the same. I had wanted the Mahina in large, but after I saw the small, it was just the perfect size for my petite frame. One of these days, we'll be united. I'm just counting the days. ;)

Anywho, have you been lusting over any items lately? Do share with us!

Until next time,
