Roberto Cavalli Orb Gold Metallic Leather Clutch: Party Animal

Who knew I was a sucker for amphibians? We know (and sometimes love) Roberto Cavall for his enduring passion for wildcats and jungle creatures, but apparently his appreciation of animals reaches all over the kingdom. These frog toggles are just too cute to take a pass on.

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag: Party of Fun

Other than the fact you’re inevitably going to end up with traces of fuchsia glitter all over yourself, this is the best holiday bag ever. If there was ever a fun party bag made exclusively for the eternal little girl who happens to be all grown up on the outside, Saint Laurent’s Lulu bag is it. Even the name connotes youth and frivolity.

Frugal Friday: Luxe for Less

It may not be the ostentatious bait of street style dreams, but there’s nothing more luxe than minimalism. Fashion’s favorite color juxtaposed against decadent, gleaming gold? It’s a simple, yet affecting pairing, and in spite of appearances, not one you need to save up to invest in!

Tod’s Military Metallic Tote

Tod’s Military Metallic Tote: Metallica Fan

The military bag may be a trend recently set by Marc Jacobs with his Spring ’15 show and his army of women in uniform, but you can get in on the upcoming trend right now. As it turns out, Tod’s is one step ahead with their Military tote, at once chunky sleek, functional and full of whimsy.

Jason Wu Christy Polished-Leather Shoulder Bag

Jason Wu Christy Polished-Leather Shoulder Bag: Thing of Beauty

Backstage at the runway show for his Spring ’15 collection, Jason told me he wants to make beauty cool again. Crazy trends and the desire to be edgy have been surpassing grace and beauty in the fashion race as of late, and he’s out to change that.

Maiyet Embroidered Venus Clutch

Maiyet Embroidered Venus Clutch: Goddess of Love

Glistening, abstract stripes of gunmetal, steel blue, and cool gold beadwork on pristine black silk: this gorgeous piece is just what the season calls for. So gorgeous, in fact, that I’m inclined to say it doesn’t even matter which season we’re talking about.

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?

BL - SS15 - Blackwall Clutch Gold Metallic

Exclusive Look at Up-and-Coming Brand BLACKSEA’s Spring 2015 Collection

A good friend of mine, Jane Lerman, quietly started her own line of handbags as a creative side project. She runs her own PR agency and showroom, and her handbags quickly caught the eye of not only friends like me, but editors and bloggers who were coming to her office to pull looks for various shoots.

House of Holland: The Bold Standard

After an exhausting (albeit exciting) week running from show to show in NYC, I’m ready for a little levity, and who better than Henry Holland to provide just that?
