Miche Fearless Details and Styling Tips ~ Join Our Party Today!

Take a closer look at the Miche Fearless Collection, and see those Interchangeable Handles in action!  Today through midnight is the last day to join our Online Miche Party!   Place your order through this link today to help Janis McCarthy add to her Miche collection, and to be entered to win a free purse charm!August 2012 Fearless Miche interchangeable chain handles antique brass and silver

Fierce fashion styles and fast shipping!  What more could a girl want?  I placed my order for items from the new Miche Fearless collection on Wednesday, and was playing with the new shells and handles Friday!  Fantastic!  And I just love them!  Let’s take a look at ways to accessorize the new Fearless shells, and also how the new handles can dress up an old favorite.

Long time readers will know of my love affair with animal prints.  Miche Demi Kendra is absolutely fabulous!  The oversized rivets and the clasp on her front strap are in the rich, antique brass tones used throughout the Fearless line, and they are set off beautifully by the Interchangeable Handles with antique brass chains I used the black strap with Kendra to pick up the black of her front belt detail and the banding at the top.  I also have more black in my wardrobe.  The brown strap is just as lovely with the brass chains and Kendra’s leopard print – I would recommend it if you wear more earth tones.  Remember – with the Interchangeable Handles, you get both a set of 2 grained black straps and a set of 2 croc textured brown straps.  Kendra has a lovely sheen, but is not “shiny”August 2012 Miche Demi Eve with Silver chains and Black Rope Handles

Miche Demi Eve is utterly chic, simply sophisticated and I just love her!  To set off her intricate weaving and cording detail, I am carrying her with the Black Rope Handles attached to 2 of the silver chains from the set of Interchangeable Handles.  Although I usually use a 1.5″ carabiner ring to attach the handle when I carry the Demi hobo-style, in this case, I found the length to be best when I attached just the chains and rope handles without the additional carabiner.August 2012 Miche Demi Eve closeup of weaving detail  Below, you have a




close up of that wonderful weaving and cording detail I have written about.  The cording has a twisted texture that goes beautifully with the Black Rope Handle.  The gentle gathers along each side just add to Eve’s easy glamour.  The purse charm shown is a Kat’s Kreations in black, white and silver, but I have also enjoyed using the Miche Taffy charmer all in white.  Perfect for when I am wearing all black and white.  There are no side pockets for Eve, but she does have a zippered back pocket.

As much as I love the new Interchangeable Handles with the new shells, they also really dress up those I already have!  Below, I want to show you two ways of using the antique brass to light up an old flame:

To the right, you see one of my favorite Classic shells, the Miche Raquel with the brown straps and antique brass chains of the Interchangeable Handles.  The abstract animal print (what else?) of Raquel gleams with gold and bronze and copper tones set off to perfection by the antique brass chains.

Perhaps you prefer the shorter handles of the Classic, making it a true handbag.  Or simply want to enjoy the new options but need to keep the budget in check.  Look how simply changing out the silver carabiner rings for those now available in antique brass adds a new dimension of richness to a bag that is already so lovely.  The pack of 4 1-inch antique brass carabiner rings is just $5.95 and an easy way to give an updated look to a favorite in your collection.

If you love the new Miche Interchangeable Handles as much as I do, you will enjoy seeing what a pretty package they arrive in.  If a friend or family member is a fellow Miche lover, look what a gift-ready package these handles make! 

Simply add a bow and you have a sure-fire terrific gift for anyone who loves her Miche bag!

Miche Bags ~ So Simple…  So Chic…  So You

Miche and me About Town: Demi Reyna and the SD Floral Association

Miche Demi Reyna at the SD Floral Association

Miche Demi Reyna and I discovered a wondrous treasure down town – The San Diego Floral Association.  This is the oldest garden club in southern California, and is the keeper of much gardening and architectural lore of the San Diego area going back well before it was part of the United States.  It felt like entering a temple and stepping back in time to a secret realm where living beauty is held sacred.

There is so much to learn there, and we barely scratched the surface.  But it was inspiring and incredibly peaceful simply contemplating the beauty of the natural world, and our place and participation in it.

I didn’t want to leave!  But eventually we had to go.  As we did, I found myself seeing my surroundings with a fresh eye – truly appreciating little beautiful details I had not noticed previously.  The lush plantings along the boulevards and even in the parking areas.  The colorful bouganville and agapanthus in full glory that we take so for granted.  Even how very nice working air conditioning and a good cd are on a long drive home!

I think that was the real lesson of the day – to appreciate goodness and beauty in big things and small in my daily life.  Miche Demi Reyna was looking her lustrous best, with her deep, rich fuchsia tones perfectly complemented and contrasted in the color and texture of the Black Rope Handles and the bit of bling she wore – the Miche Taffy purse charmer.   There was a time in my life when a dumpy sack on a strap was all I could call a purse.  How fortunate I am to be at this point in my life, able to enjoy little lovely luxuries every day.

So tell me – what little beauties are you enjoying in your life?  I am going to try to be more observant and appreciative of the goodness in my life.  Something tells me the more I count my blessings, the more blessings I will find to count!

If you ever have questions or comments, please contact me, Kat your Miche Representative.  To let me know what blessings and beauties you are enjoying, or to let me know what you and your Miche bag are up to, just click on the bubble to the right of the title of this post and type away!  Or write to me at [email protected].

Until Tuesday ~ Enjoy the beauty in every day!

Miche Celebrates Hope with Inspirational Bags and Shells!

“I live in strength and confidence” “It’s not about living or dying…it’s about living until I die”   “I found more beauty in the world, and had more faith in humanity”

Miche Hope shells collection Prima Hope Demi Hope Classic Hope Petite Hope

These words of strength and determination are quotes from cancer survivors who have inspired the Miche Hope line of shells.  Proceeds from each sale are donated to the Huntsman Cancer Institute, where 100% of all Miche donations go directly to research for a cure.  Every 3-4 months, Miche releases an entirely new design of Hope shells and retires earlier models.  For a limited time, all of those pictured above are available to order — Miche Hope shells new for May, sentimental favorites and newly available retired shells alike. 

Miche initiated this campaign in 2010 as a way of giving back to the community.  With the support of customers like you, they have now donated just over $2,000,000 to fund the search for a cure.  If you would like to Celebrate Hope, or to enjoy fashionable, functional art while giving back ~ there has never been a better time!  This is your opportunity to add a rare Miche shell to your collection, to celebrate the life of a cancer survivor, or simply to celebrate the power of Hope!
