Nina Ricci Irrisor Bag: The Shape of Things to Come

I never thought that a flat bag would appeal to me. After all, structure and interesting details are both literally and figuratively what give an accessory depth. But after lugging one heavy tote after another, I found myself seeking a sleek bag that packs well, is easy to store, and won’t cause my shoulders to slump in discomfort. Conveniently enough, Guillaume Henry had exactly the same idea in mind. His latest design, the Irrisor, is about as simple and clean as a bag can get.

11 Spring Bag Trends You Need to Buy Right Now

New, now, and not to be missed: You don’t want to jump on every trend the Spring ’16 collections have to offer – because in the age of social media saturation, trends are a dime a dozen. You’ve got to be selective. That’s why I’m stopping just short of a dozen…

Your Bag Might Not Have Enough Embellishments

Your Bag Might Not Have Enough Embellishments

Sometimes you’ve gotta go big, and now is that time. It’s looking like more is most definitely more this summer. When you’re seeking out embellishments, unfettered exuberance is the only way to go. Store away the boring and plain bags for later. Minimalism will surely come back soon as an opposing reaction to this current bubbly mood, so for now, let’s live in the moment and fall in love with the exciting trims, appliqués, embroideries, hardware, heavy stitching, and anything else you can throw on a bag that will stick.

BOYY Fall ’16 Collection: Boyy Meets World

Few brands can pull off a bag punctuated by a gigantic, belt-like buckle. Then again, BOYY isn’t your average brand. The brainchild of Jesse Dorsey and Wannasiri Kongman grabbed our attention a couple of years ago, thanks to their label’s way with strong, masculine lines and decidedly un-precious details. I have two BOYY bags myself, and I’ve always loved the duo’s unique take on classic styles.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things

These are a Few of My Favorite Things

With buds blooming and birds chirping, spring is the freshest season, so it’s only natural that it makes us yearn for a fresh crop of pieces to revive our wardrobes. I like to shake up some of my old favorites with instantly beloved new additions, as seen on this outfit. Denim skirts are the style du jour, and Dior’s embroidered A-line is just the right amount of pretty, especially paired with my trusty Prada platforms in royal purple suede, off-the-shoulder Johanna Ortiz top (nobody does puffed sleeves and ruffles like the Colombian designer), and Are You Am I Lilou choker, by blogger-turned-designer Rumi Neely.

Dior Diorever Bag

Diorever: A Bag Forever

Amidst rumors swirling about Jonathan Saunders for Dior, along with speculations of many other possibilities for a new creative director, one thing is clear: the brand is always stronger than the man. And when the brand is great, the brand will go on! This fact is evidenced by the newly launched Diorever bag, a modern take on the classic structured handbag. I’ll be getting the bag this week at the Dallas launch – and I can’t wait!

Milan Fashion Week Roundup: The Big Three

When it comes to Italian handbags, there are three supremely reigning brands. Gucci, Fendi, and Prada run the show – and they regularly blast the other Milan Fashion Week shows out of the competition. For the Spring ’16 season, the designers for all three well-seasoned houses seemed to have a single mission on the mind: To showcase their lust for life.

Two Things You Need to Update Your Spring 2016 Wardrobe

We love pastels, but they can be tricky. If the hue is even the slightest bit off or styled in the wrong way, you end up looking like you’re a six-year-old out in the yard hunting for Easter eggs. That said, there’s little that brings a greater sense of renewal than pulling out your lightest and brightest accessories for spring…
