Ahhh, Wednesdays! AKA “Hump Day,” or as some like to call it, “WTF Day.” Instead, I prefer to sidetrack myself from the weekly grind (and the rut that comes with it) and think of Wednesday as my favorite day of the week to indulge in a new favorite bag.
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!
Tod’s got a great new outlook, and a great new bag out to prove it. It’s pieces like this that make me think Alessandra Facchinetti’s transition into the house (after succeeding Derek Lam in February 2013) is complete. Like she has settled in and figured out what the longstanding Italian brand is really about.
Only two years out of the gate, and already, M2Malletier has become a street style staple thanks to its signature “needle” hardware (inspired by medieval armor and medical instruments!) and distinctly structured silhouettes.
Thanks to the brilliant Roland Mouret’s arguably long-overdue foray into bags, my favorite dresses now have perfect companions. On his Fall ’14 runway, the French designer, he of the body-transforming dresses and sensuous, geometric genius, unleashed a first line of bags with his typically top-notch collection.
Disclaimer: I love Carven everything. Regardless, their bags have always lagged rather far behind the killer ready-to-wear and even the shoes for me. Until now. The Malher has piqued my interest, particularly in part to its great price point.
This is one of my favorite bags from Chloé, and given how many gorgeous contenders there are, that’s no small statement!
Remember how eagerly we anticipated the premiere of each new season of Sex and the City? The excitement would overtake every woman I knew, whether they lived in a bustling metropolis or not. And it wasn’t just to observe and empathize with Carrie Bradshaw’s love life but to gaze at the shoes and bags worn by Sarah Jessica Parker.
