Remember how eagerly we anticipated the premiere of each new season of Sex and the City? The excitement would overtake every woman I knew, whether they lived in a bustling metropolis or not. And it wasn’t just to observe and empathize with Carrie Bradshaw’s love life but to gaze at the shoes and bags worn by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Pastels are for spring, you say? Not anymore! Or at least, not only for spring. Sooner or later, we must accept that fall will be here soon. I know, I know…the summer just started! It’s okay, though, because we can keep the color palette going through autumn...

A solid bag, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this design – other than the fact that it’s somewhat unremarkable. The Bucket lacks the hallmarks of what I’ve come to consider Proenza-luxe: the striking details and signature “PS” elements. Instead, it’s a truly clean and casual bucket style with minimal metal accents and strong structuring...

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.

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.

Sprinkled with a little Marc by Marc Jacobs’ pixie dust, and the most basic of shapes goes from boring to incredibly cute. Narciso may be the king of colorblocking, but you can always look to Marc by Marc for a tasteful (and well-priced) interpretation of the trend – with added texture-blocking to boot!

Contrary to what we might hope, bags are not always “one size fits all.” Skinny, young things may be able to get away carrying just about anything, but my well-endowed girlfriends have trouble finding even a simple crossbody. While you can certainly buy any bag out there, the truth is that different bags flatter different body types. See which will work best for you!
