Lanvin Large JL Wallet: Clutch Control

Technically this Lanvin is a wristlet wallet but I see it as a sleek clutch, a summer staple. It is not a traditional wallet, there is major organization – a zip pocket to keep contents safe, as well as slip pockets on the back and beneath the flap for when you need easier access. I’ll […]

Proenza Schouler PS1 Iguana Wallets: Ready for Reptile

Snobs who leave no bag unturned surely demand a wallet that matches the rest of their wardrobe, right? In the midst of bag frenzies, the wallet is an oft-neglected accessory that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Count on the boys of Proenza Schouler to change that. When your wallet is extra-spacious and comes with […]

Welcomecompanions: The Surreal Thing

Blame (or thank) Charlotte Olympia for the resurgence of kitsch bags. What started out as a witty joke has turned into something serious: the trend is at an all time high. With prices to match. Now another brand is out to give Charlotte’s perfume bottles and parrots and Olympia LeTan’s book bags a run for […]

Top 5 Money Holders: Number Crunchers

With the amount of the traveling I do, I like to keep several different money holders in the safe at all times – one that holds Euros, one that holds Chinese RMB, etc (you never know when you’ll need a quick getaway!). With so many gorgeous wallets to choose from, they’ve become the new mini […]

Christian Louboutin Syd Studded Leather Shopper Bag: The Sex Pistols

I wish my husband could pull off more high-fashion looks (isn’t the dream of any woman to be married a straight guy with gay aesthetics?), but I’m not sure any straight guy can pull off a studded tote. Odd because studs are not inherently feminine – think back to the original punk-rock era – but […]

Top 5 Small Essentials: All the Small Things

They say you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff, and that’s particularly easy when you’ve come prepared. A roomy bag is only as good as the stuff you’ve got in it…Well, maybe that’s not entirely true, but the quality of your life is greatly improved when all the little things are in place. Here, five super-functional […]

McQ Alexander McQueen’s Kingsland Shopper and Collar Stud Wallet: Gold Rush

Mirrored vinyl may sound like something frighteningly tacky, but bags speak louder than words. McQ Alexander McQueen, a brand you can always count on for a lighthearted take on gritty edge, has produced sleek and shiny decadence that is anything but vulgar, and now I’m saying, “Let it shine.” Sometimes high-octane gleam looks too much […]

Shinola: You Know No Better

This week, I found myself on a mini adventure to Detroit to experience a rebirth. Slightly dramatic? Yes, but equally necessary to describe what I saw. The city of Detroit has a downtrodden reputation that has persisted with its name for as long as I can remember. As we all know, its home of American […]
