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.

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection: Supermarket Sweep

Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”

Miu Miu Biker Bags

Miu Miu Biker Bags: Snob and Slob Face-Off

The concept of “less is more” has never been more obvious than in Miu Miu’s new biker-inspired collection. When it comes to quilting, padding, and topstitching, just a little is Snob…and a lot is a whole big mess of Slob.

Moschino Jacket Bags

Moschino Jacket Bags: Coat of Arms

Of all the kitschy bags I have seen in my life, this collection is the most wearable (pun fully intended). If you can get away with carrying a Bible, milk carton, or Frosty the Snowman around as a bag (extra points for maintaining a straight face in the process), why not your favorite jacket?
