Alexander Wang Runway Canteen Bag

Alexander Wang Runway Canteen Bag: Utility Room

The word “utilitarian” gets thrown around a lot when talking bags, but Alexander Wang is taking it literally this season.

Alexander Wang Spring 2015 Collection

Alexander Wang Spring 2015 Collection: Future Starts Now

Sporty, sexy, cool: Alexander Wang for Spring 2015 is the Alex I initially fell in love with years ago. While I adore the bundled, androgynous look that comes with Fall, I have trouble fitting the heavy leathers, chunky knits, and menswear-inspired styles on my petite frame.

Alexander Wang Leather Belt Bag

Alexander Wang Leather Belt Bag: Hands Off the Merchandise

It seems like the belt bag keeps trying to make a comeback. Actually, it seems like it’s been trying to make a proper renaissance for ages, but it still has yet to gain any legitimate traction. I want the belt bag to be back in full swing because what could be better when you truly need a hands-free day?

Alexander Wang Runway Survival Kit Belt Bag: Tools of the Trade

The theme of Alexander Wang’s Fall 2014 collection is something to the effect of “cool urban survivalist,” so it’s no surprise one of the first bags to be released is the Survival Kit belt bag.

Bags for Your Body Type

Bags for Your Body Type: The Art of the Complement

Shopbop Sale: Memorial Day Gold Mine

Have you picked out a cute outfit for that Memorial Day barbeque? I’m kicking myself over how many options I bought in the Shopbop sale. With hundreds of items up to 70% off, though, now is the time to splurge.

Alexander Wang Drawstring Glove Deerskin Gym Sack

Alexander Wang Drawstring Glove Deerskin Gym Sack: You Just Got Played

This one requires me to start with a disclaimer: the only reason this number isn’t a “rag bag” is because the ultimate Gym Snob who uses this strictly to carry her spare trainers and a fresh T-shirt could do this backpack justice. Napa deerskin is butter-soft and tactile, but let’s be real: 700 bucks for a glorified drawstring sack?

Top 5 Squared-Off Clutches

Top 5 Squared-Off Clutches: Shape Up or Ship Out

Haven’t you heard? It’s hip to be square. It all started with two young women who have an innate knack for knowing what’s cool; I have to give props to The Row for spearheading this trend. When the Olsen duo launched their bags with their new now-iconic shape, I was instantly smitten.
