SJP Fall 2014 Collection: Sarah Jessica and the City

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.

Pastel Leather: Belle of the Fall

Pastels are for spring, you say? Not anymore! Or at least, not only for spring. Sooner or later, we must accept that fall will be here soon. I know, I know…the summer just started! It’s okay, though, because we can keep the color palette going through autumn…

Proenza Schouler Bucket Medium Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag

Proenza Schouler Bucket Medium Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag: Something Subtle This Way Comes

A solid bag, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this design – other than the fact that it’s somewhat unremarkable. The Bucket lacks the hallmarks of what I’ve come to consider Proenza-luxe: the striking details and signature “PS” elements. Instead, it’s a truly clean and casual bucket style with minimal metal accents and strong structuring…

Prada Double and Twin Bags

Prada Pre-Fall Bags: Double the Prada Pleasure

My first Prada bag was a nylon backpack with gold chains. I wore that thing everywhere, even to class (a student needs a backpack, no?). I was so obsessed with these bags that they were one of the main topics of conversation with my girlfriends every day.

Chanel Pre-Fall Quilted Leather and Boy Fringe Bags

Chanel Pre-Fall Quilted Leather and Boy Fringe Bags: Coco the Cowgirl

Still on the fence about fringe? Linger in limbo no more. Chanel’s gutsy riff on the fashion world’s latest love interest should tip you right over. You’ll be walking with a lot more spring in your step, or at least zeal in your movements, thanks to their breeze-catching, precision-cut fringes.

Bags for Your Body Type

Bags for Your Body Type: The Art of the Complement

Contrary to what we might hope, bags are not always “one size fits all.” Skinny, young things may be able to get away carrying just about anything, but my well-endowed girlfriends have trouble finding even a simple crossbody. While you can certainly buy any bag out there, the truth is that different bags flatter different body types. See which will work best for you!

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Printed Tote and Crystal-Embellished Shoulder Bag

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Printed Tote and Crystal-Embellished Shoulder Bag: Che Figata!

One of two things has happened here: either my eye has changed or Dolce is growing on me. While their bags once (and not a time too long ago) looked blatantly kitsch, two of their latest designs, released today, are charmingly kitsch – and trust me, there is a big difference between the two.

Reese Witherspoon Carries Maiyet: Citrus Crush

Ever-bright Reese Witherspoon was looking weekend-ready as she stepped out in Beverly Hills on Thursday. Carrying Maiyet’s Peyton tote in juicy orange, she is a pretty picture of California sunshine. Such a bright, vibrant bag isn’t merely the kind of accessory mid-July calls for to keep energy up, it brings life to Reese’s deliciously airy, laser-cut ensemble.
