All That Glitters…



G’head. Elevate that little black dress to the glitziest, flashiest, blingiest fashion statement of the holiday season.

Not for the faint of heart, this handbag by My Flat in London takes even the simplest frock to the zenith of style. It’s covered in sequins that change the look of the bag every time you touch it. Rub the sequins upward, they’re black. Rub them downward, they’re silver. Swirl them around, and who knows where they’ll land on the color wheel.

Gotta have one? You’ll find it here.

Pretty in Pink

The My Flat in London line continues to excite me. It includes so many fabulous little clutches that are just perfect for a night on the town this holiday season.

This one, for example:

The girlie shade of pink works beautifully with black, navy, deep green, or espresso—adding a pop of color to brighten any outfit. And, of course, the blingy brooch is wonderfully festive.

My Flat in London

If you can’t be a British aristocrat, the next best thing is to accessorize like one.

My Flat in London, a division of the ever-popular Brighton, is a collection of handbags, jewelry, and accessories by American designer Jan Haedrich. Blending old-world charm with a contemporary joie de vivre, each piece is infused with a sense of luxury, playfulness, and exclusivity.

States Haedrick, “My Flat in London is the perfect combination of lady-like charm and ultimate modern luxury”—and I couldn’t agree more. There’s just enough bling to make a definitive statement, yet it doesn’t take itself too seriously. From tiny sequined evening bags to bold leather carry-ons…from stunning hinged bangles to dramatic chandelier necklaces…there’s something for every occasion and every personality.

And hey—the holidays are upon us! It’s the time of year for giving and receiving, and there are treasures to be found in this collection. To secure something extraordinarily special for yourself or a loved one, call or visit:
