Best Sightseeing Bags: Trip Advisor

It’s great to see the sights, but it’s even better when your bag is a sight to behold, as well. Ultimately though, when you’re exploring a new place, you need convenience above all else. Fortunately with these styles, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion or function. Their zippers and pouches are key for keeping your … Continue reading Best Sightseeing Bags: Trip Advisor

Street Style: New York Fashion Week

Yes, we’re all here for what’s on the runway, but seeing what’s off the catwalk can be just as delightful (at times dreadful). Outside the tents is more of a circus, but it’s one that I’d happily go to anytime for the pure entertainment value. Prada was prowling the streets yesterday, proving that you don’t … Continue reading Street Style: New York Fashion Week

Céline Edge Bag: The Edge of Glory

Here is yet another Kelly-esque bag (the horizontal lines, east-to-west shape, you know the drill). But the latest Céline has a mood that is entirely its own. I love Pheobe’s ability to translate the most classic and quintessential of bags into something new, forcing me to gaze at them with a fresh eye, from a … Continue reading Céline Edge Bag: The Edge of Glory

Bag Snob Obsession: Miranda Kerr

My 8-year-old boy’s new favorite word is “epic,” second to “amazing” (I sometimes think he secretly works in the fashion industry). And that pretty much describes my obsession with Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr. When it comes to muses, other than Kate Moss and La Carine, I do not think there is anyone that I care … Continue reading Bag Snob Obsession: Miranda Kerr

3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Overalls: Underexposed

I haven’t worn overalls since I was 8 years old (they were green corduroy and I wore them everyday with my roller skates). I don’t usually think it’s a look that everyone can pull off but in leather these 3.1 Phillip Lims seem more grown up. Unless you’re under 20, though, steer clear of the … Continue reading 3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Overalls: Underexposed

Céline Spring 2013 Collection: Sold on Céline

I am so sick of looking at Fall’s sale items! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to avoid caving into high-street goods and to spend more on quality things. Investment pieces I can wear over and over, without tiring of them. Long-lasting loves like the Céline Casebag. The contrasting panels are subtle, and with … Continue reading Céline Spring 2013 Collection: Sold on Céline

The Fate of the Winged Tote: From Trendy to Timeless

Arguably the most influential shape of this decade, it should come as no surprise that the winged tote has produced endless iterations. Contrary to popular belief, it was catalyzed by the YSL Downtown under Stefano Pilati’s tenure, not the Céine Luggage and Trapeze bags from Phoebe Philo – those came years later. Now that Alaïa has … Continue reading The Fate of the Winged Tote: From Trendy to Timeless

Five Essentials: eBay Edition

We are so excited to partner with eBay, my late-night addiction and secret spot for snobby scores. Even more fun than buy-it-now shopping is surfing the auctions! It’s such a thrill to witness the last few minutes of an auction in real time. I have a system: I place an early bid on an item, … Continue reading Five Essentials: eBay Edition
