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 … Continue reading Christian Louboutin Syd Studded Leather Shopper Bag: The Sex Pistols

I am still traveling in Asia, and I find it so interesting that almost every Chinese man I know carries some sort of man bag. I saw a show about luxury-buying behavior in China on the plane the other day (it’s really the only time I watch TV) and it stated that 50% of luxury-bag … Continue reading Santiago Gonzalez: The Man of the Hour

From stars to stripes to anchors and abstractions, I’m feeling unusually patriotic at the moment. Show your Fourth-of-July love with a casual bag, perfect … Continue reading Top 5 Patriotic Bags: Made in the U.S.A.
