Chinese New Year is just around the corner (January 31st!), when we leave behind the Year of the Snake and usher in the Year of the Wooden Horse. To fete the occasion, I’ve rounded up a few pieces in the Wooden Horse’s lucky colors – green and brown. Wood, lush greenery, and even a few ponies are sprinkled into the mix! What will you be wearing to celebrate the New Year?
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.

Stella’s circular clutch isn’t totally dysfunctional, though; … Continue reading Stella McCartney Plexiglass Printed-Canvas Round Clutch: Spotty Behavior
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.

Playing on our sentimentality to get us to pay top dollar is … Continue reading Olympia Le-Tan Jane Eyre Embroidered Clutch: Book Bag
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, … Continue reading 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Floral-Print Trapeze Bag: Dark Paradise
