Paris Fashion Week Face-Off

Paris Fashion Week Face-Off: Street Style vs. Runway

Sometimes it’s more entertaining to watch the show on the street than it is to watch the show on the runway. That’s how I felt during Paris Fashion Week, especially any time I spotted a well-heeled attendee who hadn’t been dressed by a brand (a trend that has gotten more and more common over the years). On the runways, we saw bags on chains at Nina Ricci and Valentino, oversized clutches at Balenciaga, and scarf-wrapped handles at Louis Vuitton…

Burlap vs. Canvas: What’s the Difference?

The warm weather months are just around the corner, meaning it’s time to stock up on summery totes, the kind you can only truly indulge in when the heat is on – or when you’re on a tropical vacation. While shopping for these, though, it’s good to know what you’re looking at. Burlap and canvas are two common materials used in the construction of beachy bags, but they aren’t the same…

The Best Street Style Trends at Fashion Month: Oversized and Top Handle

I’m flying to Paris tomorrow to complete the final leg of Fashion Month, and, as usual, I can’t wait to see all of the bags – on both the runways and the street. So far I’ve noticed a couple of strong trends emerging, for the fashion crowd and celebrities alike: oversized saddle and top-handle bags. They cater to two different types of women (or at least two different sides of a woman)…

Milan Fashion Week Roundup: The Big Three

When it comes to Italian handbags, there are three supremely reigning brands. Gucci, Fendi, and Prada run the show – and they regularly blast the other Milan Fashion Week shows out of the competition. For the Spring ’16 season, the designers for all three well-seasoned houses seemed to have a single mission on the mind: To showcase their lust for life.

Top Bags Under $200: Save Yourself

It’s so easy to get caught up with all the high-end designer bags that continuously get released – too easy, actually. So easy it can get boring!

Tina Goes for a Spin: Tesla Talks with Neiman Marcus

Given the freezing weather (snow included!), I’m sure Tina was thrilled to catch a ride from Tesla during NYFW – especially since it was with Neiman Marcus’ Fashion Director Ken Downing.

Marc Jacobs B.Y.O.T. NS Tote: Bag It Up

As it turns out, I have more than a few things in common with Marc Jacobs, including this new B.Y.O.T. (tequila not included) tote that we both carry. During New York Fashion Week, it saved me from total disaster when my bag was stolen. This spacious tote, holding my keys, camera, and other valuables, was tucked safely in the car with our driver.
