Miu Miu Crystal-Embellished Leather Drawstring Bag: Larger Than Life

Maybe it’s just the holiday mood speaking, but I’m currently really into oversized crystal embellishments. Lately, it’s the bigger, the better – which isn’t always the case! A bag like Miu Miu’s drawstring leather bag serves as a winning example of that mantra.

MCM Stark Edelin Baby Jeweled Backpack: Back(pack) It In

It’s best to start with the truth: I am not a fan of the big studded backpacks from MCM, especially the fully monogrammed ones. (Just being totally honest.) I see them frequently at airports, and the whole situation has a really low appeal to me. But then I spot this bejeweled baby-backpack at their boutique, and it’s a whole other story!

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!

Black and Gold: For the Love of Luxury

Forget trendy black and white for a minute. There’s nothing more luxurious – or timeless – than the juxtaposition of perennially chic black against rich, melting gold. It’s just the kind of decadence you want to celebrate around the holidays, when sequins, oversized jewels, and general excess are at their height.

Amen Leather Bag with Stones Embroidery

Amen Leather Bag with Stones Embroidery: Stone-Cold Fox

Let it shine! It’s time to get festive for the holidays. This constant onslaught of festivities (and shopping and cooking and preparing) means it’s also a busy time of year, and a large, easy tote is just what’s needed right about now. L’Inde Le Palais’ soft, lightweight shopper strikes the right balance between practical and party-worthy.

Valentino Close-Up Sequin-Embellished Suede Shoulder Bag: Sparks Will Fly

Like pastel and bright hues, butterflies may initially seem better suited to make their first fluttery appearance in the springtime. But also like pastels and brights, they are so much more uplifting as we fall into the cold, dark months of winter.
