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!

D&G Printed Quilted Silk-Twill Shoulder Bag: Let’s Get Loud

In concept, I love this D&G bag: a shoulder-tote style, with contrasting front and back patterns, that folds fluidly into a clutch. Three bags in one – sounds like a great deal, right? But, alas, concept and execution can be two very different things. Three-for-one does not a bargain make when the bag in question […]

Givenchy: Obsedia Obsession

Perfection. The first word that came to mind when I laid eyes on the Givenchy Obsedia Minaudiere in powder pink python. Only Riccardo Tisci can create something that bears both Hello Kitty pretty-in-pink cuteness and a polished sophistication. An oxymoron you say? Maybe so, but that’s exactly how I see it.

Carven Tweed Shoulder Bag

Carven Tweed Shoulder Bag: Let’s Get Up to Tweed

I love the look of Carven’s tweed shoes, but they are so uncomfortable I couldn’t deal with wearing them for more than a few minutes, much less conceive of buying them. Shoes are a wild card, but the beauty of bags? They always fit! Carven’s shoulder bag is a totally viable option.
