Nordstrom Slouchy Eco Tote with Pouch

Although there are a huge variety of eco-totes out there, most of the truly stylish ones are not that affordable. This truly Frugal Snob tote from Nordstrom is made from recycled water bottles and the tree print shows how eco-chic you really are. The bag folds up and fits into a zipped pouch, and while […]

Bag Snob Five Essentials: Tote/Travel/Treasure/Trend/Clutch

My friend and lifestyle expert, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, suggested I come up with the Five Essentials (The Tote, Travel, Treasure, Trend and Clutch) years ago when I shared my ideas for developing a system for a bag wardrobe. This system of 5 bags is seriously all you need for any and every occasion.  Here are […]

Donna Karan: The Bandito

Earthly and sensual, that was the first thing that came to mind when I saw The Bandito bag from Donna Karan.  No cumbersome hardware, just ropes and ribbons made of organic lambskin from North Africa dyed in the most beautiful shade of ash gray (as Donna tells us, colors lifted from the earth!).  I own […]

Eco Kids Eco-Dough

The love for Play Doh is endless and although it is “non-toxic”, it is not the most eco-friendly considering it contains all that dye. And have you every tried eating it? I personally do not think it smells as delicious as some people do, but if you ever get some in your mouth, you will […]

Stella Mccartney Canvas tote bag

Kelly got scorched when she made a comment about thousand dollar bags and the harming of animals so I will tread this delicately.  I understand Stella’s vegan stance (and loved her gym bag for Adidas) but chain embellishment aside, this isn’t even an interestingly designed bag!  Let’s not even get into functionality because the minute […]
