We are so excited to feature the fiercely fabulous duo Tom & Lorenzo, celebrity fashion critics of http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/. Their brilliant pop culture blog (offering us honest and hilarious fashion scoop since founding their first site in 2006) touches on all things fresh, from the latest in reality TV to the best and worst of the red carpet. But it’s their spot-on observations, top-notch styling opinions, and super-smart takes on fun and froth that makes them a must-click. Even when I find myself in the worst of moods, they manage to make me laugh until I cry.
Tom & Lorenzo are not afraid to tell it like it is – celebrities, watch what you wear! – but this longtime couple is charming and real, not snarky. Sure, they could give Joan Rivers and her fashion-police squad a run for their money, but these two have an edge that’s all their own. Indeed, the opinionated pair is the toast of the fashion scene. Darlings, don’t start your day or end your evenings without a dose of Tom & Lorenzo. And take their five essentials to heart – these two know their stuff!
Balenciaga Fall 2011 Papier A4 Carreaux Tote: We LOVE this bag. Bright, bold and graphic, with the simplest of elegant lines, this is another bag we feel could pair up or down, from your best Chanel drag to your favorite pair of jeans. It’s mod and classic, chic and bold all at the same time.
Bag Snob X DKNY ‘Travel’ Bag: We’ve been having a little bit of a Pan Am moment, what with the glossy ABC TV series about ’60s flight attendants taking up our Sunday nights. Lorenzo wanted his own Pan Am stewardess bag but Tom talked him into finding a suitable update. This sharp little bag fits the bill nicely. We love the shape of this bag. It just screams “stylish traveler” to us. Perfect for a weekend trip or a carry-on bag for a longer one, as long as you get to sashay somewhere with this on your arm, you’re fabulously good to go.
Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 Bag: The ideal treasure bag for us is one that will always be in style; classic, elegant, and of the highest quality. If you can snag that without turning to the obvious choices like Hermes or Louis Vuitton; go for it, we say. Let it exemplify your great taste but also show your uniqueness and sense of personal style. Done and done with this sturdy classic.
Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 Camera Bag: Our idea of a trendy bag is one that catches everyone’s immediate attention and makes the perfect ice-breaker. Because “Oh my GOD, I LOVE your bag!” never gets old. We adore the retro-sassy take of these camera bags with thick chain straps. Small, but statement-making.
Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2012 Clutch: When it came time to pick a clutch, we found ourselves turning to this brightly colored slash of attitude to our great surprise. It’s a sporty and stylish statement-maker that can be paired up or down; a great little punctuation piece without necessarily being the bag du jour.
