Beach Vacation Essentials: Pack a Tropical Punch

I just got back from a trip to Mexico, and even though it was only for a few days, you know I brought more than a few bags. Hey, when you pack well, you can do that! If you prefer an even more streamlined suitcase, though, just one or two of the below will do. Take this striped Sophie Anderson handmade cotton tote (on Forward by Elyse Walker for $425). You can carry it on the beach or when you’re farther inland, as a daily shopper bag. If it gets dirty, just throw it in the wash and get back to relaxing!

Frugal Friday: Ladylike Top Handle Bags

By the time Friday rolls around (and it sure took its time), you feel tired and frazzled, but much like the weekend, another bag is always waiting to offer you a sense of renewal. Plop down that less-organized-than-it-was-on-Monday work tote and get yourself one of these ladylike top handles. You can’t help but feel sophisticated and put-together with polished accessories like these – even if you’re in your sweaty yoga pants.

An Interview with Chris Benz

An Interview with Chris Benz: Bill Blass and Beyond

When it was revealed last year that Chris Benz, he of the neon mesh details, gutsy tropical prints, and skewed ladylike designs (he launched his own line when he was just 25 years old in 2007, and it lived for five years), was taking the helm at Bill Blass, it came as something of a surprise. But then again, who better to revive the all-American sportswear label than the Seattle native, who could make sequins feel streetwise and ruffles feel anything but retro? We got the honor of interviewing Chris, right in time for the release of the Spring collection, featuring breezy shopper totes and sporty duffels, easy slip-on sneakers, and lots more to covet in a perky citrus palette.

Rag & Bone Flight Weekender Bag

Rag & Bone Flight Weekender Bag: Up in the Air

This bag makes me want to plan a weekend trip, stat. For their new Flight bag collection’s inspiration, which also includes a smaller satchel style, Rag & Bone looked to quintessential English luggage, like the traditional Gladstone bag, with a vintage ’70s twist, à la the oversized domed rivets.

Top 5 Standout Suitcases: Look-at-Me Luggage

This may surprise you, but I do not own a single black suitcase. I only buy standout pieces, so I know they won’t get lost in the shuffle of the carrousel. When your bag is unique, people are less likely to mistake yours for their own.

Dreaming of a White Christmas: What I Must Have in White

Bing Crosby fantasized about a white Christmas back in 1942, and some things never change. I can’t speak for Bing, but I know I’m still hoping to see white come December 25th…

Louis Vuitton Celebrating Monogram

Louis Vuitton Celebrating Monogram: One, Two, Three, Logo!

I’m having a monogram moment. This is no doubt due to Petite Malle mania, but even more so because of Louis Vuitton’s latest collaborations. In honor of its 160th birthday, the house is celebrating the iconic LVs with the help of six art and design legends.
