Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Collection

Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Collection: Dark Moon Rising

I ended the most stressful New York Fashion Week (having my bag stolen and being stranded without ID and money accounted for most of the stress!) on a high note, literally. With the high-pitched sound of a pinging bell, to be exact. And another. With each chilling ping, I was blissfully liberated from the tribulations of the week and pulled further into Marc Jacobs’ beautifully haunting, Tim Burton-esque world, with odes to Beetlejuice and Corpse Bride alike. Marc usually puts on a grand show: One season it was life-sized pink Barbie houses, another warranted a world premiere at the famed Ziegfeld Theater. Marc is, if nothing else, the greatest showman on earth. But he is much, much more, like one of the most creative and talented designers on the planet.

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

Right now, the overarching trend in bags is everything optimistic and fun. It’s not the shape that makes a bag a must-have anymore. Instead of specific silhouettes, it’s all about the vivacious and expressive. Think details that catch the eye for bags that are personality-driven and tell a story – so you can tell your own story with your bag. What’s not to love about that?!

Marc Jacobs J Marc Aged Python Shoulder Bags: J Marcs the Spot

Some runway bags don’t translate well to real life. But Marc Jacobs is one of the few designers who can successfully bring the dream to reality. His Spring ’16 bags are just as enticing a prospect to carry all day, every day as they were when we first saw them swinging from the arms of models back in September at the Ziegfeld.

The Best Striped Bags: Put Your Best Stripe Forward

Stripes: No longer relegated to sports or prepsters, the fashion set has claimed them for our own. And trust we have really run with them. This season, almost every major designer has gone stripe-happy, but I can say with confidence that none have done it as well as Gucci. Can I just say Gucci, Gucci, Gucci is all I dream about? Every. Single. Day. Never would I ever think that stripes, chains, and bows could be so well-executed. But here they are, along with my other favorite stripes of the season!

The Hermès Birkin: A Better Investment than Stocks or Gold?! YASSSS!

I’ve long preached the gospel of the Hermès Birkin (and all things Hermès, for that matter). During the lean real estate years, I convinced my husband that with my bags, I was liquid, whereas he owned land, an acquisition with a price that just wasn’t stable.
