J. Mendel Fall 2015 Bags: Make a Night of It

With an aesthetic that tends to lean towards the simple and sophisticated, and an undeniable taste for all things luxe (hello, they’re a famed fur house!), their bags may not induce shock and awe, but they do incite an urge to get dressed up, in an elegant sort of way.

Bags to the Future: The Transformation of Victoria Beckham

Who’s the Snobbiest Bag Snob of all?! Victoria Beckham, that’s who. Her personal style and hair (from cropped to long, frosty blonde to rich brunette) have changed greatly throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant: her bags. More specifically, her great taste in bags.

It might sound nutty, but here it is: You need to accessorize your accessories right now, namely your bags. Thanks to the still-strong buzz surrounding Fendi’s friendly, furry monsters, this ‘90s trend (remember Prada’s robot charms!) is making a strong comeback.

Top 5 Big Softies: That Warm and Fuzzy Feeling

The throes of winter call for extra layers, more substantial fabrics, and yes, plenty of fur and shearling (whether real or faux) to help keep you toasty. While our bags clearly don’t require the same treatment, this season’s slew of nubby shearling and frothy fur bags are making me want to bundle up, down to my tote.

Fur Bags: Cold Weather Companions

Fur bags may not keep us warm like our coats and vests do, but there’s something special about them. Much like pumpkin spice lattes (and pumpkin anything, really), these are luxuries best enjoyed during a certain time of year – and that time is now.

Top 5 New Blues

Top 5 New Blues: Blue is the New Black

Don’t think of blue as a hue so different from black. Just think of the shade as jet-black’s more mellow, yet equally mysterious and often just as neutral sister. I am!

Derek Lam Fall ‘14 Musts: Mad for Monochrome

If you haven’t gotten the hint, the must-have color of the season is green. All subdued shades are great, but it’s deep, lush forest green that’s especially inviting, particularly when you want to show monochrome-level dedication.
