I just landed in Florence, so my mind is focused on all things travel! It’s hard to pare down your suitcase (I have three with me and had a nightmare the night before flying that Kelly and Rich left me on the curb with it all ‘cuz it wouldn’t fit in our car!) – I’d rather just make sure everything’s organized.

An easy, fold-over tote that can quickly convert with a shoulder strap, the tote is perfect … Continue reading Cate Blanchett x Belstaff: Queen of Biker Chic
With Veterans Day just this last Sunday, I have the armed forces marching through my brain. They have always known the secret to classic convenient design, and you don’t have to go on a top-secret mission to steal the look! Military style structure and army green define these patriotic bags (we’ll leave the hefty duffels … Continue reading Top 5 Military Bags: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style
This Carven Tote is not what meets the eye, in a good way. It has a unique convertible design with detachable handles that honestly didn’t really make sense to me at first. But after toying around with the bag and the ways you can wear it, I appreciated the subtle brilliance of it…
