Top 5 Floral Appliqué Bags: Everything’s Coming Up Roses

…And tulips and daisies and lilies. Some people say the first day of spring is March 21st (and technically, they are right). Others say it’s when new buds have returned to the trees. But I say it’s when a fresh crop of blossoms hits the shelves by way of my favorite accessory.

Nina Ricci Ballet Cabas Leather and Canvas Shoulder Bag

Nina Ricci Ballet Cabas Leather and Canvas Shoulder Bag: Hello, Lover

I’m so in love! I’m no ballerina, not even close, but this update of Nina Ricci’s delicately impactful Ballet bag is making me want to dance. Or at least do a little twirl with it on my arm. While the original has a wide, east-west silhouette, this newly elongated iteration really speaks to me.

Top 5 Camo Pieces for Fall

Top 5 Camo Pieces for Fall: Stand Out as You Blend In

I’ve fallen hard for fatigues this season. I’m getting everything in the print (of course, wearing it all together would be a serious no-no). Believe it or not, camo is incredibly versatile. I mean, it was designed to blend in! Wallflowers need not apply, though. Camo must be executed the right way and that requires confidence and style.

Stella McCartney Plexiglass Printed-Canvas Round Clutch: Spotty Behavior

Every summer I allow myself one item that’s totally fun, letting me throw caution to the wind. This year, my good-time piece is destined to be Stella McCartney’s plexiglass clutch. Round, diminutive, and perfectly quirky, it has the novel appeal of an oversized, old-school-glam compact (without going kitsch). Stella’s circular clutch isn’t totally dysfunctional, though; […]
