Jill Milan handbags are the ultimate luxury accessory

Jill Milan, which is a luxury vegan handbag line based out of San Francisco, California, offers some of the most luxurious handbags on the market. Designed by Jill Frasier and Milan Lazich, the collection offers vegetarian, vegan, animal lovers and handbag fans everywhere a luxurious selection of fine handbags which are animal friendly; how very Bay Area!

This beautiful line of handbags is hand-crafted by the finest artisans in the world in Florence, Italy where designer handbags such as Yves Saint Laurent are made. There are no other vegan handbags on the market which even come close to the exceptional quality, fine craftsmanship and outstanding materials found in Jill Milan handbags; not to mention the haute style! Perhaps this is why celebrities such as Bo Derek can be found carrying Jill Milan handbags 

Jill Milan’s handbag line includes several evening bags, clutches, totes, shoulder bags and for this upcoming season there will be a computer bag; love it! One handbag from the collection in particular, the Thoroughbred Bag, benefits charity. This Jill Milan signature handbag is a classic double handle bowler bag which is roomy enough for use as a carry-on as well as for daily use as an alternate to a tote bag.

The Thoroughbred Bag is priced at $1,295 and proceeds from the handbag are donated to animal welfare organizations. Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue, which is a beneficiary of the Thoroughbred Bag, rescues and retrains former racehorses that are at risk for being sent to slaughter in Canada or Mexico. The horses are retrained and placed in loving homes as pets or for equestrian sports.

The bold jewelry trend shows no sign of slowing down for fall into spring

Bold jewelry has been a huge trend over the past year; and after New York Fashion Week, has shown no sign of slowing down into 2012. Bold statement pieces were shown on the spring 2012 runways in several forms from large cuffs to chunky necklaces to shoulder dusting earrings. Big jewelry pieces are here to stay; unfortunately this trend can be tough to wear on a daily basis.

Since large, chunky necklaces and shoulder dusting earrings can be difficult to wear on a daily basis, it is important to find a statement piece of jewelry that is smaller in scale than what was sent down the runway; yet still makes a splash. Twisted Silver has designed an easy to wear pair of bold earrings which are scaled to everyday life for fall; the Classic Earrings.

The Classic Earrings by Twisted Silver offer a large sized look without clanging against your shoulders or being overbearing. The result? A pair of earrings that is on trend for fall 2011 and spring 2012 yet is easy enough to wear while running to the market, meeting friends for lunch and out to dinner at night. Love it!

The Classic Earrings are made from antiqued brass and copper. They offer an architectural design which has an artsy vibe. Twisted Silver will debut the Classic Earrings on September 20, 2011 at twisted-silver.com for $40. Use code INSIDERS for a 15% discount. Happy shopping and stay fabulous
