Delvaux Ame Libre Bag: Free Love

Can you blame me for loving Delvaux? The almost 200-year-old Belgian brand has the refinement and impeccable quality I crave in my most precious bags. But there’s nothing that looks too precious about Delvaux’s design philosophy; they are longstanding proponents of the minimalist chic that lets strong, simple shapes and lush skins enjoy the spotlight. … Continue reading Delvaux Ame Libre Bag: Free Love

Top 5 Lolita-Inspired Bags: Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita, which was first published back in 1955, might still be one of the most controversial novels of all time, but I’d like to look at it from a lighter perspective. The lusted-after young lady had a great eye for accessories! While heart-shaped glasses might be the item most synonymous with the bubblegum-smacking, … Continue reading Top 5 Lolita-Inspired Bags: Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

Best Summer Whites: Ride the White Wave

Winter whites make for a nice pick-me-up, but let’s be real: there’s no white better than one of the warm-weather persuasion. It’s the shade that’s made to enhance tans, offset contrasting hues, and announce to the world a new phase has arrived. Especially now. From buttery creams to crisp washes to the palest of bleach, … Continue reading Best Summer Whites: Ride the White Wave

Top Granny-Chic Handbags: Off to Grandmother’s Fashion House We Go

Grandmothers are known for sharing sage advice – they’ve seen a thing or two, so we’d be smart to listen to their wise words! But had it occurred to you to take a cue from Granny’s bag style? The answer’s probably no (unless your grandmother passed on a killer Chanel and Hermès collection, and if … Continue reading Top Granny-Chic Handbags: Off to Grandmother’s Fashion House We Go

Delvaux “Givry” Shoulder Bag: La Dolce Delvaux

When you carry a Delvaux, you are not flaunting the fact that you’re carrying a high-end designer (like interlocking-Cs or boldface “Y”). Delvaux is understated chic at its very best -only the insiders will know the house behind your bag, but the quality will be recognized. Their supple leathers and rich suedes are rivaled only … Continue reading Delvaux “Givry” Shoulder Bag: La Dolce Delvaux

Delvaux Givry MM Shoulder Bag: Solid Gold Oldie

If you use the words “demure” and “classic” to describe your personal style, I challenge you to find a more appropriate bag. Delvaux has been making leather goods for nearly 200 years (since 1829, to be precise), and no one does quintessential quiet luxury like them. So many designers claim not to care about trends; … Continue reading Delvaux Givry MM Shoulder Bag: Solid Gold Oldie

My Five Essentials Featuring Hillary Kerr & Katherine Power of WWWD

Everyone has a morning routine. For most people, it involves coffee; for me, it involves fashion. I start each day on the WWW with WWD and WWWD. Say, what? That would be Women’s Wear Daily and Who What Wear Daily, of course – because once you get the latest fashion news, you must find out … Continue reading My Five Essentials Featuring Hillary Kerr & Katherine Power of WWWD

Delvaux Tempete MM

I love this bag but probably because it is a mix of the Kelly and the PS11. Usually the combination knockoff is a turnoff but this is a perfect and ingenious mash-up. It’s little bit ladylike and a whole lotta vavoom which makes for a killer bag that can live through countless trends. It may … Continue reading Delvaux Tempete MM

Delvaux Brillant MM

As I rushed out of Barneys, this bag in the case display caught my eye and made me stop and take a closer look. Plus, this is a new brand for me and I’m always looking for different designers to cover. Delvaux is a Belgium brand that has been around since 1829 and this Brilliant … Continue reading Delvaux Brillant MM
