STYLE SPOTLIGHT: Diamantina Handbags

Stopped by the Diamantina trunk show at Carbon DC a few days ago and fell in love with Diamantina. The first thing that you notice about their amazing clutches is the size. There have been so many times that I have attended cocktail parties or black tie events and wished that I had a larger but very stylish clutch to carry. A girl like me has to carry a bunch of stuff to these events. I have to be ready to capture some fab moments when it happens.

The second thing that you will notice is the fabulous textures of their handbag line. There was glass leather, buffalo embossed leather, leopard print cowhide, python and jacare embossed leather. OMG! Not to mention the fab fall colors of these amazing bags. The other plus for me was that they carry a vast array of oversized handbags. You know I need my big A bags. I have a lot of crap. What's a girl to do?!? I have to say that I had two clear favorites, Jackie (in leopard print cowhide) and Helenita (in jacare embossed leather). I quickly became obsessed with these two bags. The Diamantina line ranges in price from $170 to $400. Totally worth every penny.

Did I mention that the majority of the bags have this fab bright pink lining? Loved that! I also loved the fact that most of the bags are convertible. For the larger bags, there are handles and straps, as well as, fab chain straps for the clutches. Also, love that!
Diamantina is available locally at Carbon DC, Zelaya and Ginger Boutiques. Get to shopping.
