Alexander McQueen Mini Padlock Graphic Snake Tote: Pick Your Poison

When it comes to certain snakes, the saying is, “red on black, venom lack; Red on yellow, killer fellow.” Looking at this mini McQueen, though, I have to disagree. It’s poisonous.

Balenciaga Padlock Nude Work Snakeskin-Handle Tote: A Hard Day’s Work

Sometimes the perfect handle is all it takes to make a simple tote feel special. It’s the power of a detail, the potency of one great touch. And speaking of touches, it’s looking like Alexander Wang still has one with some magic to it.

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile and Canvas Tote: Take It to the Beach

Did someone say beach? It was very likely me who uttered the magic word. I am so ready for the shore and sea after what very well has felt like the longest winter known to man (and Snob) since the Ice Age. I’m really not exaggerating – we had golf ball-sized hail strike Dallas in April!

Balenciaga Ostrich Tube Round L

Balenciaga Ostrich Tube Round L: Riding the L Train

Balenciaga just got serious. The words that come to mind upon first impression of this top-handle tote? Incredible. Beautiful. Classic. Decadent. This is, of course, Balenciaga’s big answer to the Birkin, but knockoff or tawdry imitation it isn’t. Thanks to their signature tube-shaped hardware, it’s merely a dutiful nod to the holy grail of bags, one that shows nothing but respect.

Top 5 Cloudy Bags: Pale Gray is the New Dark Gray

Whether you’re going totally casual or out for a luxurious evening, pale gray is color to be in right now – and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The right shade of gray is always chic and exact. There is such a sense of polish and clarity in wearing steely gray, especially when you do it with utmost confidence. For the warmer months, you ought to consider it your ultimate neutral.

Frugal Friday: Diane von Furstenberg Elaphe Clutch

Some weekends call for a clutch you don’t have to overthink. You know those weekends when you’re going out to a festive dinner or boozy brunch with a big group and you don’t want to worry about someone spilling Pinot Noir or a Bloody Mary when you set your precious bag on the table.

Christian Louboutin Fall 2014 Collection: Season of Change

Bon voyage, studs, grommets, glitter, and heavy-metal hardware, and bonjour, clean lines, smooth metal, and pristine cutouts! From spikes to structure, I like the direction Christian Louboutin bags are headed for Fall 2014.
