Top 5 Tassel Toppers: Back on the Keychain Gang

Did you ever think we’d get to the point where an accessory for your accessory would be par for the course? Then again, your bag is so much more than a mere accessory, so it seems only natural to adorn it when you feel like something’s lacking.

Trend Alert: Dropped Waist Plaid Dresses

Emma Roberts loves Elkin. She’s modeled for Kara and Brit Smith’s LA-based brand, and is often seen wearing their easy pieces while out running errands. What I love about their Spring ’15 silk number is its nod to the current trend of dropped waist plaid minis.
