Star Power: Small But Mighty Bags

Here’s a simple ode to the power of the bag. I’ve said a bag can make or break an outfit more times than I can count, and it seems a few celebrities of the moment tend to agree. Whether in clutch or crossbody form, these bags are petite yet potent, and their ability to elevate an otherwise ordinary outfit is proven, from slashed jeans to a sharp red suit.

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.

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…

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…
