Stripes: No longer relegated to sports or prepsters, the fashion set has claimed them for our own. And trust we have really run with them. This season, almost every major designer has gone stripe-happy, but I can say with confidence that none have done it as well as Gucci. Can I just say Gucci, Gucci, Gucci is all I dream about? Every. Single. Day. Never would I ever think that stripes, chains, and bows could be so well-executed. But here they are, along with my other favorite stripes of the season!

Valentine’s Day: Foodie Gifts That Won’t Make Your Lover Fat

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a box of brownies, cookies, and mini cupcakes after returning from a week away. It was so sweet!

There are plenty of foodie gifts that you can give your lover without “ruining” his or her diet. Here’s a look at some favorites.

Top 5 Mardi Gras Bags: Phat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but any holiday that encourages you to indulge in decadent foods (Did you know Mardi Gras was originally a binging festival so people could stock up, so to speak, on fatty foods ahead of giving up their favorite treats for Lent?), wear anything and everything flashy, and let loose in the streets gets my support. Maybe you’re storming the French Quarter as we speak or maybe you didn’t even realize beads were being tossed around with reckless abandon today.

A Bag for Every Sign: Happy Chinese New Year!

Today officially marks the first day of the Year of the Monkey! My son was born in the Year of the Golden Monkey, so I’m naturally biased towards this sign. Monkeys are most creative and intelligent, and they’re also known for being playful, enthusiastic, and highly social. This is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey, and it’s being said anything can happen in 2016, particularly when it comes to personal endeavors. Might I suggest acquiring a new bag as your first personal endeavor of the new year?

Workout Clothes You’ll Want to Wear Out

It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the new activewear brands launching these days, but let me make it simple for you. Your really only need to know about three: Alala, Michi, and Koral. Not only will these brands have everything you could possibly want to feel great about the way you look at the gym (and they’re made to function just as immaculately as they look), but they stock a ton of options that would look just as good in a bar as they would in a gym.
