Nothing puts me in the mood for spring-cleaning more than a new bag. It’s motivation to put your older ones up for sale to make a little money for other must-haves! These are so fresh they have me wanting to pack away all my winter sweaters and coats, and break out the delicate colors and fabrics. Which of the white bags has you excited for this next season?
Here you go: a great Balenciaga classic without the signature Balenciaga fuss. Just good, clean, boxy-structured fun. Take a look at the proportions; this is a smaller bag than you might expect, which makes the overall effect so cute. Otherwise, in a big tote size, it would be a bit overwhelming.
I bought four totes while I was at Paris Fashion Week. I’m an avid mini bag fan, but once I realized that I couldn’t even fit so much as an invitation in, the hunt for the perfect tote began. Who better for inspiration than some of the most fashionable women in the world? Take Emma Watson’s Spring 2014 Dior Addict – the look is classic with a twist, courtesy of python straps.
And with plenty of embellishments! I must have this stone, stud, and grommet accented Prada. There’s a lot going on here for such a small bag, but with the vintage appeal, it works oh so well.
It feels great to strike out at night with a flashy clutch; it’s that extra sparkle (literally and figuratively) that makes you feel special – and like a special night is in store. But make sure your awe-inspiring accessory is tasteful.
Jeremy Scott’s first collection for Moschino made a big splash at Milan Fashion Week thanks to designs inspired by American brands like Budweiser, Hershey’s, and yes, McDonald’s. I was intrigued by his jacket bags, but I can’t say I would wear any of these overcooked looks.
