My Favorite New Bag Designer: Francesca Evangelista

I was introduced to Francesca Evangelista handbags by a former co-worker via Facebook. I was captivated by the collection instantly and had to find out more. After catching up with the 20-something Italian designer via email, I was even more inspired to share the Fall 2012 collection with everyone on Day & Night Socialite. These bags are so unique and bold I am sure you will love them just as much as I do. Below, check out 4 of the bags from the Fall 2012 catalog and learn more about Francesca's very detail-oriented design inspiration.

"Francesca Evangelista is the new chic line of hand bags designed and crafted with the finest Italian leather.  This handmade in Italy collection is composed of seven models, each with a different look and soul, but with the collective ability to catch an eye and turn a head like only a bag can do…

Meet "Sofia"
"The collection is inspired by classic menswear . The colors are very important to this collection...[as] some models are characterized by strong contrasts."

Meet "Nancy"

"There are several elements [of classic menswear] such as revers and tails that are incorporated into the bags."

The Big Apple BBQ is This Weekend

It's only right to start the summer off with BBQ. I am so glad that Southern swag will be in NYC this weekend with the Big Apple Barbecue Free admission, plates of the best BBQ in the world can be had at about $8 a plate. Bring your best Southern accent, charm, a full appetite, and a blanket to sit out in Madison Square Park. See you there, socialites!
