wpid Elizabeth Olsen Alexander McQueen Heroine Shoulder Bag - Elizabeth Olsen lands in Paris with a Alexander McQueen Shoulder Bag

The stars flooded Paris airports this week on their way to Paris Fashion Week, and the French paparazzos are ready and waiting. Here’s actress/the Olsen twins’ little sis Elizabeth Olsen just after landing in Roissy Airport. On her right shoulder, you’ll notice she’s carrying a chic, black Alexander McQueen Heroine Shoulder Bag, and she also seems to have a Chanel Large Quilted Tote in tow.

Elizabeth had a coveted seat at the Louis Vuitton runway show during PFW – and, one can assume, an open invitation to an untoward amount of Parisian after-parties. I’m going to pretend I’m not insanely jealous.

What is the difference between Chanel Lambskin and caviar. Picking the right Chanel handbag means knowing which colors you want and knowing which hardware you love. But there’s more and in fact, the most important is which leather do you want to pick. Each of them have some advantages and we’re going to discuss about this.

These two leather choices are available on all classic Chanel bags:

– Chanel medium flap bag – Chanel jumbo flap bag – Chanel maxi flap bag – Chanel 2.55 reissue size 225 – Chanel 2.55 reissue size 226 – Chanel 2.55 reissue size 227 Not only do you need to pick the right bag color, the right Chanel chain, but also the right leather that FITS to your needs and personality. There is a lot of things you need to consider when picking.

Should you pick Lambskin or Caviar?

chanel lambskin -  Chanel Lambskin or caviar

Chanel bags lambskin is a very soft leather. When you stroke the Chanel bag, it feel very smooth and delightful. The lambskin will give you an extra touch in the Chanel bag, it feels like luxury. Which is good, because Chanel cost 6k, it better feel luxury.

The downside of lambskin is that it is very fragile. A lot girls have experience this after choosing lambskin leather, just in few days you will ending up with scratches and corners will start to wear off. But this really depend on how careful you are with your Chanel bag, nevertheless the scratches and wearing off will happen. It’s only the timing and is inevitable.

If you decide to wear your Chanel bag very often, then lambskin is not much of a good choose. Your Chanel bag will get abused much quicker than you can imagine, even if your intention was not abusing it. You will get hurt if you really love your bag.

But if you don’t care about having an abusive Chanel bag, because you are going to buy a new one anyway, then lambskin shouldn’t be a problem for you

How about Caviar?

chanel caviar -  Chanel Lambskin or caviar

Caviar is much more durable leather. You won’t get that much damage like the lambskin. Next time you are at a Chanel boutique try to scratch the lambskin, it is very easy to get that scratch on, but hard to get it off. But caviar is much harder, it is not easy to scratch it.

There is a downside, caviar don’t give you that luxury feeling, it is much harder. If you are going to wear your Chanel bag very often, then caviar should be the right choice.

But it all nails down to personal choices

Some girls love lambskin, even when they are going to wear it often. That’s oke, because at the end it all comes down that you have bought something you love. The one thing I hate is buying what I don’t like, ending up having that REGRET feeling. I think every girl have experience that before. Don’t just pick caviar for the sake of durability, if you ARE IN love with lambskin.

Chanel prices makes Caviar a must

Seeing the Chanel prices keep going up and up and up, most girls will pick the caviar leather for their Chanel bag. I don’t blame that for that, because I am too HEHE.

I used to buy lambskin too, because of it softness. I love lambskin, but it does not matter anymore. When I buy my new Chanel bag, I will probably pick the caviar version too. I have already some lambskin, but when you are paying $6k for a bag, you want one that can live longer and avoid scratches and that kind of stuff. Scratches hurt me more than the bag itself, I can’t imagine having a new Chanel bag in my room that is damages. I want them to be NEW forever, or as new as possible.

So which one do you pick regularly? Lambskin or Caviar?

wpid Eva Longoria Hermes Kelly Bag - Eva Longoria Carry Her Hermes Kelly Bag To Hair Salon

If I had a nickel for every time we featured a celeb conspicuously leaving a hair salon dressed to the nines…I still wouldn’t be able to afford a Hermes Kelly, but I’d be closer than I am now. Here’s Eva Longoria exiting the Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood after a low-key evening of primping and styling, with her Hermes Kelly Bag in tow. Eva’s quite an Hermes fan (who isn’t?) – she lays claim to a small collection of Birkins (one in tan, one in cobalt blue, and one in fuchsia croc, at last count) as well as a smattering of bags from practically every other must-have designer such as Celine, Balenciaga, and the like. (The list goes on interminably, of course, but I’m assuming you have other things to do today.)

The Hermes Kelly, tragically, like all the most coveted Hermes bags, is not available to the sprawling internet masses – nor will it ever be, we suspect. Ah, to live within a stone’s throw of an Hermes boutique…

Irina Shayk (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, generally gorgeous person, and girlfriend of pro soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo) was recently spotted in NYC carrying a chic emerald green Celine Horizontal Zipper Cabas Tote and balling up what looks to be her Louis Vuitton Monogram Voile Shawl. If you’ve never encountered this particular bag before and are puzzled by the existence of a designer bag with zippers at the corners, allow me to put your mind at ease – the zippers unzip to reveal the bag’s gussets, not the bag’s interior.

I know, I know. From the title of this post, I know what you must be thinking. Oh joy, another Kardashian-inspired post! (Apply either a sarcastic or gleeful tone, whichever you feel is correct.) The Kardashian sisters are in Miami filming yet another season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and earlier in this week, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian spent a glamorous day at the beach. Well, maybe “glamorous” isn’t the correct word – their presence brought out both a huge paparazzi mob and lots of rubber-neckers. So maybe for them, it was just another typical day at the beach.

Wearing rainbow-stripped shorts and a plain V-neck tee, her most glamourous accessory was her yellow Goyard Louis Bag.

Here she is in NYC on her way to the Broadway theater where she’s currently performing in “The Heiress”, and of course, she looks amazing. That gorgeous emerald green bag she’s carrying is the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily Soft Satchel.

I have a love hate relationship with the Kardashians, just like many of you do. I catch their show, I find some of their antics funny, and I find many things they partake in ridiculous, one of which being their constant paparazzi and news presence. I already know I am playing into it by covering Kim on our site, but what can I say, I kind of love her.

Kim is fun to watch. Her mom realized she was a dollar sign and she went gung-ho to promote Kimmy as best she could, and it has worked so far. Whether you like her or not, you know her name and you also know about her love life. Kim has been clinging to Kanye West recently like a magnet, and they seem to be using one another as an accessory. After his return from Paris, Kanye jetted down to Miami to be included on Kim’s reality show and do things reality stars do, like dress up and go look at houses. Kim wouldn’t leave Kanye West’s side, nor would she put down her Louis Vuitton Wallet in red monogram dots.

Victoria’s Secret model/rock n’ roll wifey Lily Aldridge was recently spotted in NYC quite expertly matching two of THE hottest and most coveted designer pieces currently on the market – a black and leopard print Celine Luggage Tote and a pair of Chloe Susanna Booties. Pairing animal prints and gold hardware sounds insanely tacky, but a heavy-handed sprinkling of each works well with this casual outfit.

If you’re still wondering who Lily’s hubs is – it’s Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill. They paired up in 2007 at Coachella (as rock frontmen and supermodels are wont to do) and tied the knot in 2011.

wpid Lauren Conrad Goyard St Louis Tote White - Lauren Conrad goes shopping with Goyard Tote

Here’s Lauren Conrad bopping around LA carrying her personalized Goyard St. Louis Tote. Goyard is notorious for its colorful, hand-painted personalizations of course, and it seems every celeb worth their salt has a Goyard in their bag stash. Goyard is only available in the brand’s boutiques and a few high-end department stores, and last we checked, prices for a St. Louis Tote ranged from about $1,100-$1,700, depending on size and color. (This isn’t Lauren’s only Goyard, by the way – you can check out her others in “The Many Bags of Lauren Conrad”!)

If you’re wondering what’s keeping LC busy these days, it’s mainly manning her Lauren Conrad lifestyle website, where she pontificates on topics such as “Are Apples Better than Coffee?” and doles out advice such as, “My Secrets to Looking Sweet, Yet Sexy.” Want to know exactly what Lauren’s craving RIGHT NOW? Her website will tell you that it’s fresh florals. She also has a clothing, shoes, and accessories line at Kohl’s, AND she’s penned several novels!

wpid Kim Kardashian Hermes Birkin Bag - Kim Kardashian Carry Hermes Birkin in NYC

Here’s (slight) baby bump-rockin’ Kim Kardashian in NYC doing a little press with her sister Kourtney. You’ll notice Kim is carrying an uber rare, extremely covetable, limited edition Hermes Birkin! If you’re unfamiliar with the So Black Birkin, you’ll notice the bag has black hardware on black leather. I’ve given the Birkin a little flack this week (the word “overexposed” might’ve been used), but the So Black Birkin reminds me what the fuss is all about.

These limited edition bags are highly sought-after, but we could only find two celebs in the PB archives that actually owned one, at last count – Kim and British heiress Tamara Ecclestone, who owns the Hermes So Black Croc Birkin.
