Valentino Small Shoulder Bag: Wild About You

Top 5 Manic Monday Bags: The Micro Bunch

I believe the best things come in small packages. Or at least the chicest things. Mini bags are not only still on trend, they’re smaller than ever. They’re micro mini, and you should think of them as accessories with little function other than aesthetic pleasure.

Bags That Won’t Go Away

Bags That Won’t Go Away: Balenciaga Arena Classic City Bag

The original Balenciaga motorcycle bag, or more officially known as the Arena Classic City bag, had me up quite a few nights in search of different variations back in 2000. I had the ready-to-be-distressed leather version. I had the less-common pony hair. Hell, I even had it in denim and flannel.

Manic Monday: Club Going Up On a Monday

The ubiquitous ILoveMakonnen song may be about “working Monday night” and the “club going up on a Tuesday,” but I’m switching it up! Turn your Manic Monday into Monday Fun Day by getting dressed to the nines and going out in full-force.

Top 5 Unexpected Canvas Bags: Yes We Canvas!

As we head towards the end of summer (noooo!), there is one thing we don’t need to leave behind. While nautical prints and caftans will have to move to the back of closet, there’s a certain fabric that gets to remain front and center: Canvas.
