Frugal Friday: Exclusive 40% Discount Off Palethorp!

Maggie Copeland founded Brooklyn-based Palethorp with a focus on high-quality leathers and snakeskins (even the signature lining is snake-printed), or more often than not, a juxtaposition of the two. The results are perfect summer fun, and as if the prices weren’t reasonable enough to begin with, the label is offering Snobs an exclusive 40% discount!

Jérôme Dreyfuss Edouard Denim, Suede, and Snake Shoulder Bag

Jérôme Dreyfuss Edouard Denim, Suede, and Snake Shoulder Bag: Ménage à Trois

I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.

How to Take Care of Your Precious Exotics

How to Take Care of Your Precious Exotics: The Dos, Don’ts, and Musts

There is nothing worse than pulling out your most treasured exotic-skin bag to find it dry, cracked, or peeling – or worse yet, all three. A very wise woman once told me that our designer bags are like fine cars: they need tuning regularly.

Nancy Gonzalez Birdcage Minaudière: She’s So Fly

I know why the caged bird sings! We have not been the biggest proponents of kitsch, but that’s really only when it is orchestrated in all the wrong ways. This is so beautifully crafted and yes, so darn adorable that I can’t resist.
