Diggin’ William Phillips

IN Love.  From the stud detail to the fringe tassel to the fact that it can be worn two different ways, how could you not love this bag?

Yes, this bag has been discussed among handbag lovers, and I dig it as well.  For me, fringe will always be an instant fashion must.

William Phillips Cowboy Harry: $347

Did I mention I dig fringe?  Well, this has the added bonus of a kick-ass connector ring.  In theory, love the idea.  In reality, I’d for sure have issues with having to constantly slip my fingers out of the rings whenever I wanted to open my bag.  I still give props to the idea though.

And I saved the best for last.  Again, with the whole connected accessory, I feel like I’d forget the bag was even connected to my wrist which would result in some clumsy situations.  Why yes that is a pseudo handcuff and those are prison stripes.  It also has a fitting name… in more ways than one.

E-robe.com describes William Phillips as…

a new Australian handbag label that caters for those fashion savvy girls who ooze style and love items with a point of difference.  Fresh to the scene, this label is already stocked throughout the world and is assured to grow into the books of a Fashionista must haves.

Admittedly I haven’t been really paying attention to the handbag market since buying my two trustworthy bags — a Marc by Marc Jacobs satchel and tote — last year.  Every time I get a new handbag I neglect my perfectly usable ones and really they never see the light of day after I come home with a brand new one.  However, when I’m ready to invest in a new body sidekick, er, holder of all my crap, I’ll look to get one from William Phillips.  Not only do they have a rock glam vibe, but they’re also reasonably budget-friendly.  Score.

      Hi Sofie! Funny that you said that because I was JUST looking at the first pic again and thought to myself the same thing.. when Anne Hathaway walks into the party and first meets designer James Holt and Christian.. that brown bag is def. the same shape as the William Phillips one. 🙂 xo, Becs

    I saw part of the episode, the double-date-ish dinner. I’m sorry but that Steve guy is NOT 26? Are you kidding me? My husband turns 29 this year and looks oodles younger. Steve looks like he’s 37 LOL…. and I adore Theresa’s little girl.. x

    The first one reminds me of the Bulga Butterfly bag that was so popular a few years ago.
