Men’s Culottes: The Short List just got Longer

All right, I can barely get my husband to stand my culottes, let alone get him in a pair, but Alexander McQueen’s SS16 mulottes (Is this a term? It is now!) give me hope that the trend will be making its way into menswear soon. Guys must get tired of wearing the same old shorts all summer long, no? This is a fun alternative – and a much cooler one than a pair of bootcut jeans.

Dress like an Icon

Dress like an Icon: Grace Coddington

Personal style is just that – personal. But as a writer develops his voice by reading the work of classic authors or an artist learns his craft by studying the genius of generations past, so do we evolve our fashion sense by observing and appreciating the style of others.

Alexander McQueen Padlock Mini Elaphe Zip Satchel: Snake Eyes

We love exotics because well, they’re exotic, but this takes the jungle vibe a step further. It’s downright dangerous looking! And who doesn’t crave the element of danger every now and again?

Large Studded Leather Caged Bag

Alexander McQueen Large Studded Leather Caged Bag: Hard-Headed and Light-Hearted

I’ve got so much love for this hard-case bag with a cool metal cage wrapped around it. Badass, bondage-inspired, and even a little ladylike, Alexander McQueen delivers all the classic elements of a show bag, though here’s the clincher: you can actually use it!

Top 5 Manic Monday Bags: The Jump Start

When it comes to days of the week, each one receives some kind of love: Sunday Funday, Hump Day, “Thursday’s the new Friday,” TGIF…Except Monday. Odds are Monday is your least favorite day because, well, it’s kind of a drag.

Summer Sale Roundup: Discounts are in the Bag

Summer sales have been going on for a while, which means that the discounts are getting really good – and also that a lot of the most sought-after pieces have already been swiped up! I know you’d probably rather go home and pass out for an hour before you get your weekend started tonight…

Bad Girls Need Nice Things Too

Bad Girls Need Nice Things Too

There seems to be a relatively consistent image of what a successful woman should wear, from hair and makeup to clothes and shoes. While fitting this mold isn’t a bad thing, sometimes a girl just wants to branch out, toughen things up a little bit.

Rihanna x Giorgio Armani Le Sac 11: Classic Does It

Could simple, streamlined totes be having a moment? Sure, elegant Célines and Victoria Beckhams have been Snob favorites for years, but you don’t necessarily expect Bad Gal RiRi to carry such a classic style. Maybe it’s in response to all of the clown couture we see paraded on the streets.
