When the biggest shopping day of the year strikes, you know it’s not time to focus on the full-priced investments and treats. This is the time when the good stuff you’ve been coveting and craving all autumn long has just gone on sale!
It’s time to up the high-shine factor. Not just because it’s the holiday season; even without the upcoming onslaught of soirees, something about mirrored accessories feels so good right now. In the age of the selfie-obsessed, we could all use some more personal reflection! Even if it’s in the form of seriously glamorous accessories.
Is it possible to ever tire of a good animal print? Looking at the latest crop of wild cat and jungle creature motifs, I have to say no, it’s not possible! In the spectrum of patterns, the animal print is about as neutral and versatile as they come.
Hedi Slimane has proven he can make just about anything cool, including sheer tights under shorts, as seen on Saint Laurent’s Spring ’15 runway, and logo-punctuated clutches. But I am not into guns as accessories, and even the guy who had the brashness to drop the “Yves” off the company name can’t convert me.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
