Lanvin Sugar Mini Grommeted Suede Crossbody Bag: Go the Limit

Lanvin bags often tend to lean towards the prettier, more traditionally feminine side. Now it looks like they’ve switched gears for the time being, from their recent braided and tassel shoulder style to this latest riff on all-over studs. The brand is full of attitude this season…

Top 5 Life is Beautiful Festival Bags

Top 5 Life is Beautiful Festival Bags: What Happens in Vegas…

I am not one for a festival, but I never say no to Las Vegas. No, there will not be any camping. I am staying near the Life is Beautiful festival, where Kendrick Lamar and Stevie Wonder are slated to perform, among many others, and enjoying the glamour.

Top 5 On-Trend Saddle Bags

Top 5 On-Trend Saddle Bags: Off the Ranch and Onto the Runway

The results from New York Fashion Week are in, and the biggest bag trend off the Spring ’16 runway is definitely the saddle bag. It’s the perfectly relaxed counterpart to the season’s loose silhouettes, sweetly lacy accents, and pajama-reminiscent looks.

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.

Five Bags to Avoid

Five Bags to Avoid: Fringe Overkill

A little fringe is fun and on-trend. But not all fringe is created equal, and these fringe bags rival Animal the Muppet in their levels of crazy moppy-ness. But hey, maybe you like that kind of look. And maybe you’ve got a little bit of Animal in you yourself!

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.
