How to Do Chic Maternity

How to Do Chic Maternity: Anne Hathaway x Marc by Marc Jacobs

Anne Hathaway’s been out of the limelight lately, as she prepares for the arrival of her first baby, but all it takes is one stellar red carpet appearance to remind the world of just how chic and fabulous you really are – especially when pregnant. There’s nothing wrong with plain old maternity wear for these occasions, but I love when women make non-maternity clothes work in spite of their growing bellies…

Happy-Go-Lucky Bags: Spring is in the Air

This spring is all about projecting an innocent spirit. I’m loving the sense of optimism and joyful attitude that’s already in full effect. It’s the perfect way to start off the new year, one that, by the look of things, is guaranteed to be a good one. It also looks like it will be nothing but picnics all season, and I am definitely okay with that! Come prepared to soak up the sun with the right bag…

Golden Globes Trend

Golden Globe Trend: Cape Dresses

Can we all just agree that Jennifer Lopez was the best-dressed at the Globes? That dazzlingly bright marigold Giambattista Valli gown with the cape was everything. The caped-crusader trend definitely didn’t start with the always-flawless star (remember Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford at the 2012 Academy Awards?), but there’s no doubt she’ll be the one to mainstream it. Be prepared to see cape everything, starting now.

End the Year With a Bag

End the Year With a BAG!: Happy New Year

After a year of great collaborations (Rag & Bone! Mark Cross! Derek Lam!), I’m closing out the year with Barbie and Vogue China. As a little girl, I loved Barbie and had everything from Barbie’s Dreamhouse to her mobile home with a pool on the roof deck. It’s been so much fun to reunite with my childhood bestie! In time for New Year’s Eve, she has a miniaturized version of our Audrey jewel box, perfect for a glam night out with Ken and friends. (Note the Asian Barbie in my honor. Wish we had these when we were kids!) Read on for more bags you’ll want by your side when you welcome in the New Year – and that you’ll want to keep carrying for the rest of 2016.

Top Bag-Inspired Accents: All About Ornaments

Dangling bag-themed decorations feel perfect for this time of year. They’re like tiny ornaments. I mean, how amazing would it be to have an entire tree trimmed with these cuties? Each one of these, from bag charms and key chains to brooches and earrings, is great as a gift, but I’ve already got my Christmas gifts covered. Which means I’m getting these for myself! Good things do come in small, bag-shaped packages.

Top 5 BROgues: Brogues Before Bros

I have three brothers, and I grew up a tomboy, until I discovered boys. But I still loved borrowing their clothes into my teenage years, and now I often steal my 10-year-old son’s cute little sweaters (to his dismay).

Top Techie Cases: High (Fashion) Tech

For better or worse, we look at our phones, and other gadgets, basically all day long, so don’t they deserve something special? And since it’s not your main accessory in the spotlight, your iPhone or iPad case is where you can really let loose and opt for something you wouldn’t normally carry. Snakes? Sure! Studs? Bring it!

Top 5 Life is Beautiful Festival Bags: What Happens in Vegas…

I am not one for a festival, but I never say no to Las Vegas. No, there will not be any camping. I am staying near the Life is Beautiful festival, where Kendrick Lamar and Stevie Wonder are slated to perform, among many others, and enjoying the glamour.

Top 7 Animal-Inspired Bags: Multi-Species Chic

Why should little kids have all the fun when it comes to toting their stuffed animals around? It’s time to bring the zoo with you, thanks to a new bunch of bags that are more suited to hang on a snob’s arm than they are on the shelves at FAO Schwarz (I can’t believe they’re closing!), if barely so.
