Fierce: A Definition in Handbags | Manolo for the Big Girl

Fierce: A Definition in Handbags

“Poodle, I know how Your People love the use of the word ‘fierce’ but I’m not really sure you can technically apply it to the technique with which you just saran-wrapped day-old blueberry muffins.” and of course my friend agreed. He just hadn’t had the chance to use that word all day and felt he was depriving himself.
Of course there’s no need to deprive yourself (oooh, smooooth!) of these fierce handbags from Forzieri, which are all classic, on enormous sale AND –you guessed it– FIERCE.
Julia Cocco Degrade’ Patent Eco-leather Clutch

Degrade' Patent Eco-leather Clutch w/Chain Strap

I love this little clutch, and it’s perfect for those of us who found the Prada degrade clutch of a few seasons back a little too big. Also comes in a fantastic tiger’s eye brown degrade and an amazing orchid for spring that is very Dolce to me.

Forzieri Croco stamped red patent leather tote, made in Italy.


Have we established that I’m a sucker for red crocodile? I love love love love LOVE it and once my first really rich husband dies, I’m going to have the walls of my study done entirely in red crocodile.

Forzieri Italian leather hobo


I’m not a hobo girl, I like a structured bag, but strangely I actually like this one. It’s more downtown and Barney’s than uptown and Bergdorf’s, but it also reminds me very strongly of The English Patient. I could totally see Kristin Scott Thomas carrying this bag through the desert looking fabulous and proper and winsome and adventurous, can’t you?

    I heart that red purse, too! I’ll get it after I get a rich husband. If I get to make a wish list for my next husband, then he will be my rich, orphaned husband.

    I love the hobo yellow bag, it’s very bohemian! Too bad you forgot to mention its price… :(
