Charlotte Olympia Sunny Metallic Patent-Leather and PVC Clutch

Charlotte Olympia Sunny Metallic Patent-Leather and PVC Clutch: Gotcha!

Oh no, she didn’t! Charlotte Olympia struck again, and though the joke’s on me, I’m too excited to care. There I was scrolling through NET-A-PORTER looking for some new sunglasses, when I found the perfect retro pair – only to realize it was a cat-eyed clutch!

Classy Cropped Dressing: Made in Maiyet

How does a Snob in her forties tackle the crop-top trend? If your answer is avoid it entirely, you’re dead wrong! It’s just a matter of making sure you looked pulled together and executing a wise way with proportion play. A monochromatic three-piece ensemble is a chic nod to this season’s cropped trend without bordering onto tacky territory.

Jil Sander Mirrored-Leather Tote: Through the Looking Glass

Look who’s back! Mirrored leather, high-shine and unapologetic, has returned to the scene, and I definitely need to get in on the glossy action. Especially when it’s done this right: reflective silver can easily go the way of a disco inferno – be wary of construction when it comes to this fickle leather; one wrong move and you’ve gotten something cheap and tacky that should be left on the retro dance floor.

Top 5 Perfect Polka Dot Bags: Crazy, Spotty, Cool

Right now, it’s all about polka dots on everything from sundresses to stilettos, but you know I have a special place in my heart and closet for bags. A smattering of spots can serve a real purpose. Take a boring, serious bag and add the right kind of dots – whether magnified, hardware-decked, perforated, or perfectly wacky – and bam! Suddenly you’ve got something cheerful and delightful for summer.

Marni Metallic Patent-Leather and Satin Shoulder Bag: Flash of Genius

I love a good, simple shoulder pouch for the spring, so that I can be breezy and effortless like the season. But instead of a boring overly-simplified pouch, this has details that take it so much further. The metallic patent flap in silver gives a flash without getting too blingy for the day. The hardware has the slightest industrial feel for fun so it isn’t so serious.

Ferragamo’s Creations: Famous Favorites Reissued

You don’t need to reinvent the wheel – you need to reissue it! At least that’s the case for a historic house like Ferragamo that has a vast collection of iconic pieces and a clientele who longs to get their hands on every last one.

Prada Spring 2014 Vintage and Embroidered Bags: Spring Awakening

Everything is coming up Prada for Spring 2014! This post comes with a disclaimer: I know I just wrote about Prada on Monday, and I have a rule about not doing back-to-back reviews on one designer lest I seem biased. But let’s be honest, if there was no Prada, there would be no Bag Snob. With that, I unapologetically give you their latest release of bags.

Saint Laurent Candy Bags

Saint Laurent Candy Bags: I Want Candy

Suddenly craving something sugary? I know I am. Saint Laurent has struck a sweet spot with their latest style: a mini-bag that’s equal parts cute and edgy, tricked out in grommets and studs and stripes and everything sparkly. Thankfully, though, not all at once.
