My nude obsession continues. Actually, it’s only gaining steam. After a streak of blindingly bright neon trends, all things washed out have never looked chicer.

All month I’ve been dressing in pink and highlighting friends and celebrities who are doing the same in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so of course, Jennifer Garner caught my eye in this fluorescent Dior. Being a Bag Snob, though, the shiny Roger Vivier Maxi Boite de Nuit clutch got my attention almost as quickly!

Hedi Slimane has proven he can make just about anything cool, including sheer tights under shorts, as seen on Saint Laurent’s Spring ’15 runway, and logo-punctuated clutches. But I am not into guns as accessories, and even the guy who had the brashness to drop the “Yves” off the company name can’t convert me.

Fendi is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to their flirty, often smile-inducing plays on critters and creatures, and now they’ve made the move from monsters to abstracted incarnations of actual animals. This might be too cutesy, but come on, it is pretty darn cute. Moreover, it’s kind of irresistible.

People often ask me to name the consummate turning point in my career, and I always have a definitive answer. I tell them it was when Mr. Oscar de la Renta brought us into the "fashion club" nearly eight years ago. He was the first major designer to take a leap of faith and do so.

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote. The "safety buckle" motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

While the adage, “things aren’t always as they seem,” may be old, it applies to some of the freshest designs out there. In English, trompe l’oeil translates to “deceives the eye,” and these designers make that deception one that you'll welcome with a smile.
