Top Concert-Worthy Bags: Don’t Stop the Music

I recently attended the Katy Perry concert with my 10-year-old. Despite being the oldest person there amongst screaming preteens, I had the best bag in the whole place– one that left me hands-free to eat my cotton candy with one hand, while pumping my fist in beat with the other. In the spirit of being unencumbered and embracing the music, here are the top bags for concerts!

NET-A-PORTER Fashion Fantasies Bag Subscription: Dreams Really Do Come True

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, the consequent countdown to Christmas is officially in full gear. One of my favorite holiday gifts is the “Fruit of the Month” delivery from our neighbors. Each month, a lovely box of in-season fruit arrives at my door. But I think this monthly gift just beat it. Possibly by a landslide.

From home goods (including jewelry boxes and even tampon cases!) to hardware-light bags, few can work an exotic skin like Elisabeth Weinstock. Since 2002, she’s cemented and maintained her unreal hand with decadent anaconda. Her latest – and greatest – is a backpack that’s polished and sophisticated.

DKNY Pascal Knee High Boots: The Secret to Fitting In

You could spend years searching for a pair of knee high boots that look good on you and still come up bare-footed, but I’ve finally met my match! What’s so great about these is that they’ll flatter just about any Snob (and you know knee highs are not one style fits all). Most tall boots make my petite legs look stocky.

Rebagg: The Art of the Deal

How many unworn bags sit in your closet, mocking you, serving as reminders of money wasted? You’ve tried selling at consignment shops, but the issue with that re-commerce model is that you have to wait for someone to actually buy your bag before you see any cash. It can take weeks, months, even up to a year…

Top 5 Metallic Must-Haves: That’s a Real Shiner

It’s time to up the high-shine factor. Not just because it’s the holiday season; even without the upcoming onslaught of soirees, something about mirrored accessories feels so good right now. In the age of the selfie-obsessed, we could all use some more personal reflection! Even if it’s in the form of seriously glamorous accessories.
