Book to Buy: The Career Code by Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power

When Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power launched Who What Wear in 2006, it was a fun blog that revealed the brands behind our favorite celeb outfits. Now they head up a major, multi-faceted company that continues to expand. I’ve always greatly admired these two badass CEOs. There’s something to self-made success, and now the duo is revealing all their tips, secrets, and best advice in their new (and third!) book Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Success.

Gucci for NET-A-PORTER Capsule Collection: What’s Not Sold Out Yet

With Alessandro Michele at its helm, Gucci has been going through a sweeping renaissance, with the Italian house’s monogram serving as a major player. From the fur-accented loafers to the graphic bags, everything has been flying off the shelves, so to feed the beast, Gucci teamed up with NET-A-PORTER to launch an exclusive 20-piece capsule collection, ranging in price from $465 to $5,300. In what will come as a surprise to none of you, most of the pieces have already sold out. Some will be coming back in stock, but if you want your fix now, here’s the best of what’s still for sale today. Get them while you can!

Star Power: Small But Mighty Bags

Here’s a simple ode to the power of the bag. I’ve said a bag can make or break an outfit more times than I can count, and it seems a few celebrities of the moment tend to agree. Whether in clutch or crossbody form, these bags are petite yet potent, and their ability to elevate an otherwise ordinary outfit is proven, from slashed jeans to a sharp red suit.

Trendy Classics: How to Best Invest

The term “trendy classic” may seem like an oxymoron, but investment pieces worthy of this designation truly do exist – and one of its main purveyors is Bottega Veneta. The Intrecciato weave is a timeless signature for the Italian house, and in miniaturized, bright blue crossbody form, it also somehow manages to be completely of the times. To really play up the trendiness, style it with a contrasting shoe like Saint Laurent’s violet Candy platform.

Trend Report: Rainbow Right

Trend Report: Rainbow Right

There’s always a place in my heart for rainbows. Maybe it’s the fact they seem a bit magical and represent our dreams coming true. Or maybe it’s that there’s no visual delight quite like a union of every bright, happy color in the spectrum. For example, Stella McCartney’s famed Falabella tote now comes in seven boldly saturated hues, and the bag has never looked better.
