Top 5 New Iridescent Bags: Everything is Illuminated

The fall collections may already be hitting the shelves, but the summer days are longer than ever – and so are their steamy nights. There’s something about high summer that makes me want to sparkle just a little more.

Christian Louboutin Fall 2015 Bags: Big and Bold

Have enough red-soled heels in your closet? (I think we all do.) It’s time to start getting hip to Christian Louboutin bags. We weren’t always so enthusiastic about the sexy shoe guru’s handbags, but the brand’s new collection of oversized clutches is absolutely divine!

Fringed Heels: Swing in Your Step

What doesn’t have fringe on it in fashion these days? I’m not mad about it! In fact, these heels are some of the best examples out there – and also great examples of how varied it can be. On these three shoes alone, we have classic fringe, leaf-like fringe, and sweet, satin pleats.

Top 5 Savvy Suede Bags: Under $500 and Fabulous

Think fall’s luxest material has to come with a luxe price tag to match? Think again. Some of my favorite suede bags ring in at $500 or lower. When you spend a little less, you also get the freedom of less worry, not that carrying a new suede bag should make you fret.

Trend Alert: Standing-Only Swimsuits

A new trend has been building over the last few years – swimsuits that you can’t swim in. I like to call them standing-only swimsuits. They’re for the peacocks out there like Demi Lovato. I don’t really know what to say about her outfit. Even standing in it seems like a precarious situation.
