…and already we’ve seen four great sales! First there was NET-A-PORTER’s, then Neiman Marcus’, and now Shopbop and Saks Fifth Avenue have taken up the cause to help melt away your mid-week blues with deals at up to 40% off. The former’s discounts will be available through Friday, while Saks’ will last through the whole weekend. The way things are going, I bet there will be more sales to come next week, but in the meantime, make sure you check out these personality-packed steals.

Top 5 Perfect Phone Pouches: The Light Stuff

You might find this hard to believe, but I’ve walked around all day with nothing but my phone and survived, thanks to Apple Pay. Not only did I just survive, I was surprised by how fabulously liberating it felt. Sometimes it’s nice to take a load off and travel light. Not long ago, the idea of carrying nothing but a slender pouch seemed crazy. This is the new normal.

The Best Bags for Moms with Kids of Different Ages

In honor of Mother’s Day this upcoming Sunday, I’ve pulled together a list of gift options (bags, natch) that will not only delight her sartorial sense, but will give her the function she needs as a parent – of a child of any age. Take Elle Macpherson’s Hermès Jypsiere. She carried this when her kids were toddlers, and thanks to the timelessness and high-quality nature of Hermès pieces, it remains a go-to for her even now that they’re older.

7 Bags That Are out of Your Comfort Zone

7 Bags That Are out of Your Comfort Zone

Maybe it’s delirium from the heat, but summertime is when I like to get experimental and wear things I never thought I would. Going for something that surprises even yourself is a move guaranteed to make for some fun vacation photos of the “What was I thinking?” variety, but hey, playing it safe only ensures boredom in life. Get out of your shell and throw caution to the wind!

How to Wear Your Backpack Now: Take It to the Front

Front is the new back. And pack is the new bag. When it comes to casual dressing, the latest celeb bag trend isn’t just the roomy backpack, from the classic and quilted to the rugged and safari-inspired. It’s carrying your backpack in the front. Think 360° and use the straps to your full advantage. Also, use your hands. While the appeal of the backpack has long been in its capacity to free you up, now is the time to take a hands-on approach.

The Ace of Spades: An Interview with Kate Valentine

Back in January of 1993, a company launched that would go on to become one of America’s leading handbag brands. That company was Kate Spade. Founders Kate and husband Andy Spade left the über-successful business in 2007 and have now gone on with two former Kate Spade colleagues to launch Frances Valentine, a design house with an eye for playful, feminine style. She is so committed to it that she’s even changed her last name from Spade to Valentine (though it’s worth noting that the latter is a family name; her grandfather’s middle name, to be exact)! That’s some dedication. I once saw the two of them speak at an Amex forum and was very impressed with their story, so it was lovely to talk with her personally about what to expect from the new NYC-based studio. If you saw my post on the best beach totes, you know I’m already a fan!
