La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Oil and Emulsion

La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Oil and Emulsion: So Happy Together

I used to be all about La Prairie’s Skin Caviar (even though I was probably too young to fully appreciate it), but when it comes to age-defying, hydrating beauty products, nothing tops their new Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal collection.

Top 5 Curved Edges: Round-Up of Rounded Bags

For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. So with the recent onslaught of hard, unyielding bags, you can bet there’s a slew of softer options to even things out. Here it is: the counter movement to the recent structured bag obsession.

Tod’s Medium Cape Tote: The Caped Crusader

This singular new bag from Tod’s heralds a new chapter for the brand. The Cape is well worth the wait, after the house took a long hiatus from new styles that got my attention. For a huge Tod’s fan like me, this is all too exciting.

Dolce & Gabbana Lemon-Embroidered & Jewel-Embellished Lunch Box and Miss Dolce Raffia Box Shoulder Bag: Living La Dolce Vita

These Dolce & Gabbana box bags are so insanely cute for spring, I already can’t get enough of them. This is the side of Domenico and Stefano I enjoy: when they blend their deeply rooted Italian pride with dreamy whimsy and a bit of humor.

Sophie Hulme Printed Flap Satchel

Sophie Hulme Printed Flap Satchel: I’m With the Brand

A good print always catches the eye, but that’s not the real eye-grabber here. The initial shocker is that this is a Sophie Hulme bag, sans her signature exaggerated hardware. While there may not be a studded or screwed-on metal plaque to be found, it’s still not without her personal touch.

Sonia Rykiel Stephane Beige Leather Handbag

Sonia Rykiel Stephane Beige Leather Handbag: Perfection, Squared

This bag is so brilliant, I am already totally in love. Sometimes all it takes is a simple equation to strike Snob gold, and in the case of Sonia Rykiel’s Stephane bag, a tote + a pouch = genius.
