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!

Top 5 Wallets-on-Chains

Top 5 Wallets on Chains: Chain of Command

I lost my wallet during NYFW (it was stolen at an event out of my mini bag right in front of me!). My ID, all my credit cards, and not to mention the my entire cash supply for Fashion Week: gone. Kelly gave me one of her company credit cards (we share bank accounts!), but how do you fly home without an ID? Luckily, a good Samaritan found my wallet on a sidewalk, with the ID and cards strewn all over the place (cash gone, natch).

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 Collection: Chanel Does Dallas

In her time, Coco Chanel hated mini-skirts and blue jeans. If she were alive in ours, would she have fully approved of the Métiers D’art Pre-Fall 2014 collection? While I’m not so sure, she did love doing the unexpected, so perhaps the answer is yes!

Chanel No.5 Bottle Bag

Chanel No 5 Bottle Bag: Perfumania

Karl Lagerfeld has combined two of our favorite things – Chanel No 5 and bags – to create what’s destined to be a street style sensation. The idea behind this transparent plexiglass clutch? According to him, “I think it’s cute.”

Chanel Métiers d'Art Paris-Dallas 2013/14 Collection

Chanel Metiers d’Art Paris-Dallas 2013/14 Collection: Lone Star State of Mind

Just one more week until Chanel unveils the 2013/14 Métiers d’Art collection in my adopted hometown! As excited as I am for the show, I’m just as thrilled to see Karl Lagerfeld’s new film The Return. It features Geraldine Chaplin as Coco Chanel, a role that according to Karl required her to be mean, as Coco had a mean streak herself.
