Put It On Ice: New Year, New Bags!

Who’s excited for a new year of fabulous bags? For this special post, we went to a winter ice wonderland. The magic of ice is as fleeting as life itself, as its beauty lasts only as long as it remains freezing cold outside. The healing powers of ice have long been sought after by mankind, most recently for their ability to preserve youth (cryo spas are the rage right now, as standing in extreme-cold conditions for a certain amount of time is said to stimulate circulation and promote healthy skin cells).

Top 10 Cures for the Blues

Top 10 Cures for the Blues

The word “blue” has gotten a bad rap in modern times, particularly in American culture. Blue Christmas, the Monday blues, singing the blues, heck, blue balls…I could go on until I’m blue in the face! In reality, blue is the most uplifting color of all. Just look to the sky on a bright, sunny day. It’s an instant mood-enhancer, just like crystal-clear blue water.

DIY Wallet-on-a-Chain: Mind the Strap

The holiday season may be coming to a close, but there’s at least one party left – and it’s the biggest of them all! New Year’s Eve gatherings are often packed to the brim with people, so clearly you don’t want to be dragging around a hefty tote. You want to be holding a drink, dancing, and snacking on delicious little canapés (before your January 1st diet and fitness regimen officially kicks off!). That calls for a small, hands-free bag. My accessory of choice? The wallet-on-a-chain. The only trouble is that some of my favorite wallets come sans-strap…

Top Trends Turned Classics: The Theory of Evolution

I remember in the ’90s, I wouldn’t wear a skinny jean if you paid me (well, actually, that would have depended on your price). It was all about a hip-slung bell-bottom or a nice, stiff boot cut – thanks, Earl Jeans. Now, the great thing about the 21st century, and the fast-paced digital information age that’s come along with it, is trends never really die or fade into obscurity because they keep coming back so quickly. So much so that even some of the trendiest of trends have evolved into bona fide classics.

Fendi DotCom Bag: The Bomb Dot Com

You know why Fendi is often a one-stop shop for me? From my Mini-Monster bags and wallets to the Peekaboo in multi-hue fur or the editor-favorite 2 Jour tote, with Karlito in tow, naturally, to the most simplistic shapes of all, aka the brand-spanking new Dotcom, this brand has a bag for all different tastes, preferences, and perhaps most importantly, Snobby moods of all kinds.

Top 5 Painterly Bags

Top 5 Painterly Bags: Give Them the Brush Off

I’m no highbrow art connoisseur, but I do know a thing or two about bags. I also know that a painterly motif can make for an invigorating way to liven up your wardrobe. Fashion’s visual arts trend has been gaining traction for quite some time, and I’m especially appreciating the latest crop of gallery-worthy pieces. From feathery brushstrokes to abstract doodles to picturesque landscapes to hand-drawn sketches, these bags may inspire you to get in touch with your own inner painter.

Top 5 Fun, Unexpected Top Handle Bags: Take It from the Top

Forget neutral and necessarily practical-looking. The top-handle bag is meant to be fun because when you’re carrying something right in your hand, it receives full attention. And rightly so! An amusing and quirky bag that only gets tucked in at your side has just missed the point.
