I bought four totes while I was at Paris Fashion Week. I’m an avid mini bag fan, but once I realized that I couldn’t even fit so much as an invitation in, the hunt for the perfect tote began. Who better for inspiration than some of the most fashionable women in the world? Take Emma Watson’s Spring 2014 Dior Addict – the look is classic with a twist, courtesy of python straps.
I have complained that Anya Hindmarch veered too far off into Novelty Land with her Capri Sun-lookalike foil-pouch clutch, but her sense of adventure isn’t all bad. Actually, she’s proven she has a real sense of savvy and even outright originality for the spring season.
The first sunny day of the week gave way to an appropriately lighthearted mood at Chloé. The Fall 2014 Chloé girl is as breezy and effortless as ever, and more free-spirited than before. She doesn’t sweat anything; her attitude is chill because she’s confident in herself – and her innate sense of style, no over-the-top accessories or airbrushed face of makeup required.
Excuse me! When did Ferragamo get this good? Actually, forget good. It really doesn’t get much better than this, as far as I’m concerned.

Milan Fashion Week: land of luscious leathers, sophisticated street style with an ever-outlandish twist, and where the avant-garde is sure to merge with the classic. Fall 2014 was no exception. While it was hard to narrow the list down to just three, here are my favorites from the Milan runways…
I love The Row, but I’m sorry: this clutch is ridiculous. While it’s not hard to embrace the bohemian tassel-accented hobos and fringe-trimmed clutches of their current Spring ’14 collection, this time, they’ve taken their embellishments too far.
