Fendi Baguette Metallic Fur Monster Bag and Mini Peekaboo Bag

Fendi Baguette Metallic Fur Monster Bag and Mini Peekaboo Bag: Beauty and the Beast

I am completely bipolar when it comes to Fendi bags. Or is Karl the bipolar one? Now that I think about it, the latter is the more likely option. Someone please tell me: How did these two bags come out of the same house?

Feather Accessories

Feather Accessories: Shake Your Tailfeather

An exotic bag is one of the most luxurious accessories you can collect, but that kind of luxury comes at a steep cost. With feathers, you get the exotic look without the accompanying price tag! They also add instant glitz and glam to even the most mundane of outfits…

Shrimps Pluto Faux Fur Clutch: Sea Sick

Remember that line from “Under the Sea,” the most famous song in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, that goes something like, “Life is much better, down where it’s wetter”? Jokes aside, Sebastian the crab may know a thing or two about philosophy, but his mantra doesn’t apply to this piece by Shrimps.

Nancy Gonzalez Small Framed Mink Fur Clutch Bag: A Fur Foray

Nancy’s foray in to new exotics is as exciting as the bags themselves. When the queen of crocodile takes on a new (and arguably equally decadent) material, you take notice…

3.1 Phillip Lim Small Ryder Satchel: Wild Thing

Zagliani Deva and Gatsby Totes

Zagliani Deva and Gatsby Totes: Two’s Company

It’s been a little while since we’ve covered a Zagliani bag, and I can confidently say their new Fall 2014 collection is most definitely making me sit up and take notice once again. Recently appointed Creative Director Giorgia Scarpa (formerly of Prada and Dior), now on her third collection for the Italian luxury house, is hitting her stride. As they say, third time’s a charm.

Jason Wu Fall 2014 Collection

Jason Wu Fall 2014 Collection: The Lap of Luxury

Metallics? Hello, liquid luster! Black patent leather? Think shinier than your lip gloss. Astrakhan lamb fur? So sumptuous! And crocodile? This is as divine as exotic skin gets. Jason Wu is keeping his girls classy for Fall ’14 with an insanely gorgeous bag collection set strictly in neutral tones.
