Top 5 Surfer-Girl Bags: Aloha Spirit

Summertime and the living’s easy. Especially when you get to spend it catching waves and hanging on the beach. Not so much if you’re more of a sand bunny like me and can’t catch a wave to save her life (they call girls who’ve taken boards to the face “blah-malahs,” by the way!). But we […]

Top 5 Bags for a Bike Ride: Pedal Power

Of all the bags out there, the bicycle is naturally synonymous with the messenger. But your workaday bike messenger is not likely to be seen with any of these hands-free carryalls!

Lanvin Diamond Prints: Rocks Off

I generally like diamonds on my body and not my bags. It’s just a personal preference (I’d be too scared to lose a few diamonds or have the bag stolen!). But I do love the sparkly look of my crystal-encrusted clutches, particularly for bringing enchantment to evening ensembles. Not-so-precious crystals are somewhat worry-free, while a […]

Slightly funky and way cool, Jérôme Dreyfuss has the downtown vibe down pat. He clearly thinks about the woman who needs to move in style, especially when it comes to these two well-priced bags.
