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.

sass & bide Made in Africa Bags: Feel Good, Look Good

Most bags are purely for our own pleasure, but when we find those select few that are both beautiful and meaningful, we take even more pride in carrying them. That’s exactly how I feel about sass & bide’s latest offering.

Chanel Spring 2014 Collection: Art Star

Ever the showman, Karl Lagerfeld didn’t disappoint with the big reveal of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. He conceptualized it as a massive art unveiling, transforming the Grand Palais into a Lagerfeld-laden gallery, full of paintings and sculptures (75 to be exact, imagined by Karl himself).

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; […]

Olympia Le-Tan Jane Eyre Embroidered Clutch: Book Bag

Cigar boxes came back into fashion years ago, and since then, literary Snobs have been coveting Olympia Le-Tan’s book clutches like they were rare editions themselves. The classics have been on heavy rotation in street style photos, but the prices are just ridiculous. Playing on our sentimentality to get us to pay top dollar is […]

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Floral-Print Trapeze Bag: Dark Paradise

The 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli is the Birkin for younger Snobs – structured, chic, and timeless. For girls on the go, the zips on the front can expand the bag’s size during long days at work and just as easily slim the silhouette down for an evening out. While there are already countless color/material combos, […]

Perrin Paris 1893: Avant-Garden of Delights

Perrin Paris 1893 may have opened their flagship store in Beverly Hills just a few years ago, but the iconic family business has been around for 120 years. Naturally, the craftsmanship is incredible, but even more incredible are the innovative designs. The Fall/Winter 2013 collection brings us the Menotte Pochette ($850 – $2,150), a clutch […]
