Top 5 Flat Pouch Clutches: Shallow Shapes and Deep Designs

Tis the time for embellished accessories, but I say, keep your clutch minimal this season. Pouches aren’t just for girls who don’t like to carry real bags (gasp!) and holding makeup anymore. The simple pouch has elevated itself to become the ultimate chic touch.

Belt Bags: Hands-Free Holiday Shopping

It’s time to gear up for battle, and by battle I mean Black Friday (and all the sale days preceding, as it seems they’re earlier and earlier every year!) and by gear I mean a belt bag. It may seem crazy to suggest buying a bag in order to go buy other things, but it’s better to be hands-free so that you can shop in top form.

Trend Alert: Butterfly Accessories

Top 5 Holiday-Worthy Pouches

Top 5 Holiday-Worthy Pouches: Powerful Pouches

Forget the clutch for now. It’s the pouch that’s the real fashion-editor favorite of the moment. Why, you ask?

And don’t think they’re meant to be reserved just for day (while they do make for perfect street-style photographer fodder).

Bold Gold Accessories: The Royal Treatment

Between hot apple cider and the rich hues of falling leaves, it’s clear that fall is all about one thing – finding warmth. So forget about your silver shoes. This season we’re going for the gold. And not just any old gold – I’m talking the bright, shiny stuff that Cleopatra herself would kill for.

Top 5 Day Bags for Fall: Carry On…and On…and On

There are days when it’s all about the bag. You take out your wardrobe’s best and enjoy putting forth the energy to baby it with precious treatment. And then there are those days when life gets in the way and you’re too busy to worry about taking care of an investment piece while you go about your business.

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014 Roundup, Part 2: Bottega Veneta, Marni, and Dolce & Gabbana

While Milan Fashion Week kicked off with a big, vibrant, Technicolor bang, full of feathers, fringe, and artsy embellishments, it came to a close with more of a light and seductive whisper, one only real Italians can deliver. I just arrived in Paris today and can’t wait to see what the French houses show, but for now, here’s a roundup of my MFW favorites!
