Born Free Africa: A Cause for Shopping

We love when a designer donates a portion of proceeds to charity, but when a campaign like Born Free Africa rounds up 22 major designers to collaborate on a collection that promises to give 100% of its profits, that’s nothing short of a movement.

Celine Bags

Céline Geometrical Handbag: Can You Handle It

Céline’s new summer tote is as unsurprisingly fabulous as it is surprisingly impractical. On second thought, maybe its high level of impracticality isn’t so shocking; Céline bags are not exactly known for their functionality.

FEED Canvas Bags

FEED Canvas Bags: Happy Earth Day!

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than with eco-friendly FEED totes? They’re the perfect summer beach bags, and better yet, the purchase of just one of these provides meals for between 25 and 50 school kids.

Christian Louboutin Decollete Python Pump

Christian Louboutin Decollete Python Pump: Work of Art

We all obsess over bright shoes come springtime, but this Loubie is so much more. The abstract print is like a painting or even a colorful Rorschach test. I see trees, rainbows…and yet in spite of the whimsy, the kaleidoscopic look is nothing short of sophisticated on the pointed Decollete style.

Chloé Smooth Leather Tote

Chloé Smooth Leather Tote: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah!

For those of you (and by that I mean me) who love Chloé’s Baylee bagicon but just can’t get over that double-zipper pull (and the inconvenience that comes with it), here is a new rendition that’s a total problem-solver. The smooth-leather tote version offers the same look, but the double-zipper detail has been implemented in a way that’s easier and more functional by leaps and bounds.

Dareen Hakim Le Versailles Clutch

Dareen Hakim Le Versailles Clutch: Palace Walk

My gorgeous friend Dareen Hakim has charmed me once again with a bag as original as it is sensible, two often-dueling qualities that she’s managed to make a trademark of hers. Ever-inspired by architecture, Dareen has named her latest style after France’s famed royal palace, but there’s nothing old-fashioned or even Rococo about it.

Tod’s Large Perforated Leather Bucket Bag

Tod’s Large Perforated Leather Bucket Bag: Spring Fling

Welcome back! It’s so wonderful to see Tod’s on my radar again, thanks to this perfect summer tote. It’s nothing revolutionary, but the bag definitely has some majorly covetable details.

Frugal Friday

Frugal Friday: Marc by Marc Jacobs Round the Way Girl Messenger Bag

I’m on a crossbody kick right now. No bag is more essential during the summer months than this one, and Marc by Marc Jacobs is the go-to brand for Frugal Snob options. With a total of four pockets inside and out (including the must-have exterior compartment for your phone), this messenger is very practical, but you wouldn’t know it from the fun, citrusy colorblocking.
