Food-Inspired Bags: Taste This

While I consider myself both a Bag Snob and a Food Snob, I never thought the two would come together in quite this way. The results are hit or miss. Chanel, for one, did the gourmand well with steaks that were probably the most imaginative bags we’ve seen from the brand in years. I also fell for Nancy Gonzalez’s handwoven croc wicker apples and pineapples.

Celebrity Bag Roundup: Battle of the Totes

I bought four totes while I was at Paris Fashion Week. I’m an avid mini bag fan, but once I realized that I couldn’t even fit so much as an invitation in, the hunt for the perfect tote began. Who better for inspiration than some of the most fashionable women in the world? Take Emma Watson’s Spring 2014 Dior Addict – the look is classic with a twist, courtesy of python straps.

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection: Supermarket Sweep

Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”

LuxeDH: Spring Cleaning

I have been doing some Spring cleaning in my closet, and I can tell you, I am ready to sell the bags I no longer use and get ones that are relevant to me now. There are many resale consignment sites out there, but I have found that LuxeDH has all the amazing brands, including my top 3 – Hermès, Chanel, and Celine. Their service is incredible especially for buying gently used bags.

Chanel Nuit Magique Collection

Mani Monday: Chanel Nuit Magique Collection

A new workweek calls for a new nail color. Today I’m all about Chanel. For their latest set of polishes, the French label has taken to the skies! Naturally, blue comes into play, but this is no boring sky blue. Magic is modeled after the deep color of daybreak, and while it’s a great hue for winter, the jet black Cosmic is far more unique – and more far out for that matter…

Cosmetics Bags that Pull Double Duty

Cosmetics Bags that Pull Double Duty

A cosmetics bag that can pull double duty as clutch is not only handy, but economical. While these may look like pouches and wristlets, they’re priced as cosmetics cases, a confusing yet very exciting realization. It’s a trick designers are playing with us. I’m here to help you game the system, though, and work on a New Year’s resolution – to be a better Frugal Snob for 2014!
