Top 5 Heavenly Handbags: Get Victoria’s Secret Angel Style for Less

Off-duty model fashion always piques our interest – especially when covetable bags are involved – and few models get more photographer attention than Victoria’s Secret Angels. Their individual styles aren’t just on display in lingerie and swimwear shoots; they’re even more prominent in everyday moments. From Adriana Lima’s well-priced basic black tote to Alessandra Ambrosio’s on-trend Fendi to Candice Swanepoel’s classic Chanel Flap, there’s enough variety to suit every personality – and with the frugally-priced alternatives I found, every budget as well.

11 Spring Bag Trends You Need to Buy Right Now

New, now, and not to be missed: You don’t want to jump on every trend the Spring ’16 collections have to offer – because in the age of social media saturation, trends are a dime a dozen. You’ve got to be selective. That’s why I’m stopping just short of a dozen…

Your Bag Might Not Have Enough Embellishments

Your Bag Might Not Have Enough Embellishments

Sometimes you’ve gotta go big, and now is that time. It’s looking like more is most definitely more this summer. When you’re seeking out embellishments, unfettered exuberance is the only way to go. Store away the boring and plain bags for later. Minimalism will surely come back soon as an opposing reaction to this current bubbly mood, so for now, let’s live in the moment and fall in love with the exciting trims, appliqués, embroideries, hardware, heavy stitching, and anything else you can throw on a bag that will stick.

Top Untraditional Easter Bags: Pretty – But Not Pastel

Impossibly innocent pastels and sugar-coated sweetness are great when you’re of a certain age. The age when you believe the bunny delivered your basket and Easter egg hunts are exciting, no mimosa required. There are different ways to celebrate Easter and the unofficial onset of spring. Bright colors and bold bows, graphics that won’t fade into the grass, and florals that give garden blossoms a run for their money: This is how I like to celebrate the upcoming holiday!

Top Whipstitched Bags: Whip It Good

We’ve always appreciated good whipstitching on a bag. It’s instant texture, it’s rustic elegance, it’s a detail that, when done right, doesn’t translate to one that tries too hard. But most importantly, it’s great only when done with restraint – a touch of trim here, a jolt of punctuation there. This season, whipstitching is also a big trend, so jump on it. Here, my pick of the best bags that will have you in stitches…

Celebrity Looks of the Week: Cast Your Vote!

By now, many of you have thought about who you will vote for in the upcoming presidential election, and while that is most certainly a civic duty to embrace, the race has obviously gotten tense. Give yourself a quick break from the fray by voting on something a little more fun: the best celebrity look of the week. Each woman carried a great bag, but all were styled differently – some glammed up and some more casually…

Fashion Custom Made for You: The Best in Bespoke

The idea of buying couture seems like something that exists in a fantasy world for most, but now there are many options allowing you to get that personalized experience of having fashion made just for you. With all the off-the-shelf choices out there, there doesn’t seem to be much that’s truly special anymore. Besides, sometimes it’s not about exclusivity as much as it is necessity: Finding shoes that fit perfectly isn’t possible for some, and as for jeans? We all know the pains of finding a pair of jeans that fits like a glove. These customizable options allow you to get one-of-a-kind treatment – and they’re so much more affordable than you’d think…

Top Striking Straps: What’s in a Strap?

Or should the question be, “What’s in the rest of the bag?” Because when the strap is all you notice, it might seem like the strap is all that matters. Not quite, although a strap can make – or break – a bag. Success lies in the perfect balance. When your bag’s strap is striking, its body needs to be neutral and measured, not too much of anything, so the spotlight remains where it should. Then again, it can’t be too much of nothing, either. I’m not interested in boring bags! Here, straps with the right stuff and bags to match…

Milan Fashion Week Roundup: The Big Three

When it comes to Italian handbags, there are three supremely reigning brands. Gucci, Fendi, and Prada run the show – and they regularly blast the other Milan Fashion Week shows out of the competition. For the Spring ’16 season, the designers for all three well-seasoned houses seemed to have a single mission on the mind: To showcase their lust for life.
