Top Dark Floral Bags: Dangerous Romance

Calling all bad girls and rabble-rousers. There’s a new bunch of florals on the scene and while they may be fresh-picked, there’s nothing sweet about this garden variety. My new favorite floral bags are mysterious, unexpected, and most of all, dark, proving the enduring flower theme shouldn’t be strictly reserved for spring.

Top Fantasy-to-Reality Bags: Flights of Fancy

What bag would you buy if money was no object and practicality was of no consequence? I know I would leap for something altogether fanciful, heavy on whimsy and irreverence (and yes, heavy on the wallet, too). Like one of these seven clutches, each seemingly designed to help you elude reality for an evening or two – and light up your bag closet for years to come. Here, my current favorite crazy-unusual bags worth a mega-splurge because we could all use an escape every now and again.

Top 5 Favorite Bag-and-Shoe Pairings: Best Party Couples

When it comes to coordinating your bag and shoes, the natural tendency is to go matchy-matchy, but that look is always very safe and lackluster. A little less literal is the route to take. What we want, especially for an occasion like a party, is to punctuate the pairing with personality.

Top Fur Shoes: I’m Fur Real

My sentiments for fur shoes differ greatly from fur bags. Think about it: Your wallet doesn’t get cold – but your feet do. That’s why fur shoes are a big SNOB for me.

Fendi Peekaboo Large Leather-Trimmed Patchwork Calf-Hair Tote and Super Karlito Fox Fur Purse Charm: Take Your Chances

As I go through the thousands of looks from New York Fashion Week and choose my favorites, I can’t help but think how safe most of the Spring ’16 collections were revealed to be (with the exception of a few bold geniuses like Marc Jacobs, Alex Wang, and Riccardo Tisci).
