Kara Ross Lux Bronzo Clutch: She’s Got a New Attitude

Kara’s got a brand-new look, and I’m liking it. The precious-stone master is changing things up, and the result is a decidedly more modern and rustic-luxe vibe.

Roberto Cavalli Metallic Leather Panther Clutch: The Golden Rule

If metallic embossed leather and a serious statement cuff to match feels a bit too festive in the pre-Labor Day moment, allow yourself to think ahead. Gold reigns supreme for the fall and holiday seasons, so it’s best to make sure you’re covered early.

Top 5 Out-of-the-Forest Bags

Maison Martin Margiela Silver CD Mosaic Clutch: One Woman’s Trash…

…Is another woman’s clutch! With the advent of digital music downloads, CDs are pretty much a thing of the past, unless you’re on the design team of Maison Martin Margiela. They’ve burnished recycled CDs, cut them up, and tiled them across this bag to surprisingly sophisticated effect.

Nancy Gonzalez Birdcage Minaudière: She’s So Fly

I know why the caged bird sings! We have not been the biggest proponents of kitsch, but that’s really only when it is orchestrated in all the wrong ways. This is so beautifully crafted and yes, so darn adorable that I can’t resist.

Marchesa Resort 2015 Collection: Hitting the Trifecta

I went into the Marchesa showroom today to do some fashion-spying for Resort 2015, and I’m pleased to report that Georgina and Keren are – surprise! – not skimping on the glamour, not even close. These styles aren’t set to ship until November 30th (which seems a seriously long way off), but for a sneak peek to get you excited early, here are three new styles for the new season.

Battle of the Bags: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with Givenchy vs. Hilary Duff with Chanel

It’s the age-old question: does the bag make the woman or the woman make the bag? Personally, I think it’s a bit of both, but two disparate looks from two different women pose the query all over again.

Best Snobby Designer Sales of the Season

Remember when it seemed like can’t-miss sales rolled around twice a year, max? Times have changed, and with designers releasing more throughout the year (hello, Resort and Pre-Fall!), that means more amazing steals to tide us over. This season, use the latest markdowns as an opportunity to invest in a longstanding staple. Without further fuss, here are the best sale picks, my top bag from each major shopping destination:

Now that we’re all rested up from the long weekend (or exhausted – depends on how you spent it!), it’s time to get back to work. And by work, I mean perusing the latest sales…
