Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag

Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag: Beat It

I love Giuseppe Zanotti. I really do. His shoes are exquisite and fabulous, and I can only wish I had the stamina to wear his stilettos daily. So as much as it pains me to do so, I’ve got to call it like I see it…

Karl Lagerfeld Spring ‘15 Collection

Karl Lagerfeld Spring ‘15 Collection: Karlito’s Way

It’s easy to get so wrapped up in Karl Lagerfeld’s stunning work for Chanel and Fendi that we forget he has his own eponymous line. But he does, and it’s pretty desirable in its own right, especially the Spring ’15 collection.

Moschino Bag-Embellished Cotton Jersey Hooded Top

Moschino Bag-Embellished Cotton Jersey Hooded Top: A Pouch with Punch

Two-for-one special, anyone? This is quite possibly the most functional trend, ever. Jeremy Scott (seriously, who else?!) at Moschino is determined to bring the term “hands-free” to brave new levels.

Marc Jacobs Bag

Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart to Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag: Crossbody My Heart

This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!

Snob Essentials Handbag Collection

Snob Essentials Handbag Collection: The Launch is On!

Last night, we celebrated the launch of Snob Essentials at an intimate dinner for a group of our dearest friends. The event was generously hosted by HSN, where we will introduce our first collection on May 15th. As the date rapidly approaches, I can happily say we are so proud of this collection.

Bottega Veneta Glass Bag

Bottega Veneta Glass Bag: Heart of Glass

Here is a perfect example of a bag that illustrates the pillars of Bottega Veneta: impeccable craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design topped with quality materials. And like every Bottega piece, it effectively grabs attention without resorting to the vulgarity of in-your-face logos or cheap tricks like tacky dangling fur balls.

Moschino Fall 2014

Moschino Fall 2014: I’m Not Loving It

Jeremy Scott’s first collection for Moschino made a big splash at Milan Fashion Week thanks to designs inspired by American brands like Budweiser, Hershey’s, and yes, McDonald’s. I was intrigued by his jacket bags, but I can’t say I would wear any of these overcooked looks.
