Sarah Jessica Parker x Snob Essentials Croco-Embossed Jewel Box Handbag: Carrie On

Had you told me 15 years ago that one day Ms. Bradshaw would be carrying a bag that Kelly and I designed, I would have fainted, which is almost what I did this morning when I saw the lovely SJP with our green Jewel Box!

Frugal Friday: Luxe for Less

It may not be the ostentatious bait of street style dreams, but there’s nothing more luxe than minimalism. Fashion’s favorite color juxtaposed against decadent, gleaming gold? It’s a simple, yet affecting pairing, and in spite of appearances, not one you need to save up to invest in!

Frugal Friday Linea Pelle Hunter Tote

Frugal Friday: Linea Pelle Hunter Tote

It’s been a while since I’ve found myself drawn to a slouchy, effortless tote. The kind you can – and undoubtedly will – use to death, and then will continue to use because once it’s all worn in, it suddenly has a whole new look. But here I am again, and this time it’s Linea Pelle’s frugal find that has demanded my attention.

Time’s Arrow Ishi Bags: Hitting the Big Time

When former CFDA Fashion Incubator mentor Christine Park started Time’s Arrow last year, she took inspiration from her mother’s bag collection – pieces minimalist in style, yet heavy on interior organization. In this way, the Fall ‘14 Ishi clutches and crossbodies are certainly on-brand.

Marc Jacobs Bag

Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart to Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag: Crossbody My Heart

This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!
