Rose quartz may be my favorite on-trend color that’s always tempting me, especially as of late, but like a pretty appetizer instead of a robust meal, I still easily tire of lightweight colors of little substance. That’s why black is my mainstay entrée.
Gigi Hadid just made two major fashion points: There are no rules anymore when it comes to dressing for couture shows, and there are endlessly edgy ways to work winter white. I’m loving Gigi in a breezy white coat with tattered denim and a whimsical clutch. Her A.L.C. jacket, a glamorous update on the standard trench, is the perfect way to polish up a pair of seriously ripped One Teaspoon boyfriend jeans (note: the Aussie label is the go-to for off-duty denim).
I wish there was a pill for “I don’t have anything to wear” days. Pop it and poof! A new outfit. If you also suffer from this chronic ailment, an eye-catching bag is always the answer. And if you’re carrying one of Sarah’s Bags, you can trust it will be all anyone looks at; no one will even notice what you’re wearing with one of these mood elevators clutched in your hands. So tongue-in-cheek, when I’m not taking them out as my medicine, I like displaying them on my bookshelves.
Calling all Hermès Snobs! This is one of the most incredible bags I have ever laid eyes upon. So incredible that it’s going up for auction at Sotheby’s on Friday, Jan 8th which means everyone has a chance to buy it. Well, everyone in theory, at least; the guide price is $75,700. Regardless, waitlists be damned!
With 2015 comfortably behind us, we’re looking forward towards a fresh year, at least for the most part. As awards season quickly approaches, it’s time we take stock of the best, worst, and most memorable bags of the past year. Make your voice heard, and vote from now until Sunday, January 10th! The winners will be announced on Monday, January 11th. The fate of the brands is in your hands, perhaps literally.
Happy New Year! The brand of 2016? G.U.C.C.I. This past year, the house received a much-needed new perspective, delivered in the form of Alessandro Michele. He came, he saw, and he conquered by way of an entirely modern, perfectly offbeat vision. Never has a brand seen a more successful reboot (at least not since Tom Ford took hold of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent all the way back in 1994). From Michele’s first look down the runway last February – a vivid red midi-length skirt, logo-laden belt, and ethereally see-through top – we were smitten.
