1. Goyard black with brown trim – the perfect everyday tote bag

2. Chanel double flap orange and purple lamb skin – the most fun pops of color

3. Dolce & Gabbana small “Miss Sicily” bag – the bag she’ll carry for her fabulous nights out

4. Louis Vuitton speedy – the classic, timeless, and simply gorgeous one

A few months back we talked about entry level priced designer handbags, and today we wanted to break it down and talk about, specifically, Chanel bags. These are, of course, still very much investment pieces, but they are each under $2000. So, whether you’re saving up for your first Chanel bag or you already have plenty in your closet, these are five gorgeous styles to consider adding to your collection.

What a night it was! Donae turned 50 on Monday, and this past weekend we celebrated.

And celebrate we did!

It started with shopping and champagne at Dolce & Gabbana, followed by dinner and drinks at Toulouse across the way, at River Oaks District.

It didn’t just stop at dinner and drinks, though.

Authentic Italian dancers came out and danced halfway through the night, Hanh Tran did a live painting, and there was a cake to rival all cakes by Elizabeth Harvey Designs (see below). It was quite the soiree, and it was such a fun celebration.

The most important part was that Donae wanted to raise money for Know Autism, and she’s almost at her goal of $25,000 (link to donate below). Everyone was so generous and it was a truly special evening.

See below for tons of photos from this incredible night!
