As we look forward to the Resort treats, covetable Spring musts, and everything else tempting us into 2014, let’s pause and take a look back at the best of the past year. A lot of bags have come, stolen our hearts, and gone, but only a handful have what it takes to withstand the test of time (even if we’re only talking 12 months).
Mom bags – as in suitable for diapers – these are not. These Five Essentials are the bags women want, covet, and deserve for Mother’s Day. This isn’t a holiday for practical gifts (Mom is practical all year long!). That, to me, is disrespectful. Instead, show your mother how much you love her by showering […]
With a powerhouse voice and real acting chops, Emmy Rossum is a rare breed of double-threat. Have you watched Shameless yet? It’s my new guilty pleasure: the Gallaghers are the family you love to hate but can’t help but love. Indeed, producers initially feared Emmy was “too pretty” for therole, but she plays Fiona with […]
Downton Abbey is back on PBS this Sunday, and I can’t wait! My biggest burning question – will Lady Mary and Matthew really get married?? What will she wear for the wedding?

Your 20s are for experimenting; by the time you’re into the next decade, a few investment-level pieces are key. Your essentials should be […]
If you’re not watching Homeland, odds are someone has already chastised you for it, and I’ll second them! Honestly, once you start, you can’t stop. Just ask the president – it’s his favorite show. Claire Danes has already won tons of awards for playing bipolar CIA officer Carrie Mathison on the Showtime thriller. Intrigued yet? […]
Your twenties isn’t the decade for serious, budget-busting investment pieces – save those for your thirties! Rather, it’s a time to build a strong foundation, ensuring you have a bag to suit every purpose and occasion. Polish and simplicity will take a girl far, especially as you pave the way for your future, but don’t […]
