Trend Alert: Gray & Black

Last year we had the black and white trend, and this year, things are taking a darker turn – in a good way! I’m obsessing over pastels right now just as much as the next girl, but there’s nothing like a bag you can carry year-round.

Balenciaga Padlock Nude Work Snakeskin-Handle Tote: A Hard Day’s Work

Sometimes the perfect handle is all it takes to make a simple tote feel special. It’s the power of a detail, the potency of one great touch. And speaking of touches, it’s looking like Alexander Wang still has one with some magic to it.

Top 5 Capes

Top 5 Capes: The Caped Crusaders

I went to see the new musical Harmony last week, and fell in love with one of the character’s capes – a velvet capelet with long straps that went under the arms and tied in the back. Some costumes can only be pulled off on a stage, but these are pieces you can integrate naturally in everyday life, whether you’re on the beach, playing in the rain, or out on a Friday night!

Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning: Rotating Your Handbags for the Season

I’ve started writing a monthly column for HarpersBazaar.com that I hope you’ll all be tuning in for! My first subject was spring cleaning, or rather, spring organizing (it’s a lot easier to organize than to give away beloved bags!). At the start of a new season, I store the pieces I won’t be wearing in boxes, and bring out all the others I’ve been waiting to carry.

Balenciaga Ostrich Tube Round L

Balenciaga Ostrich Tube Round L: Riding the L Train

Balenciaga just got serious. The words that come to mind upon first impression of this top-handle tote? Incredible. Beautiful. Classic. Decadent. This is, of course, Balenciaga’s big answer to the Birkin, but knockoff or tawdry imitation it isn’t. Thanks to their signature tube-shaped hardware, it’s merely a dutiful nod to the holy grail of bags, one that shows nothing but respect.

Balenciaga Padlock Work Leather Tote

Balenciaga Padlock Work Leather Tote: You’d Better Work

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.

Best Tech Accessories: The Next Big Thing

Face it – you’ve become permanently attached to your smart phone, tablet, and laptop. And by you, I mean me! It feels like my life would fall apart if any one of these things were to disappear or be damaged. Just like you would with anything that is so precious in your life, you make sure it’s safe and snuggled up in the most fabulous coverings.

Ari Dein Slip Dress Plus Rag & Bone Talia V-Neck Sweater: Sleep-Meets-Street Dressing

The moment Coco Chanel slipped her beau’s oversized sweater on over her dress, so began the revolution of glamorous cross-dressing. Nearly a century later, the combination holds strong, and there’s nothing quite as perfect as a sumptuously too-big sweater and a delicate slip dress when it comes to transitional dressing.
