Black and White: The Dynamic Duo

Graphic black and white was last year’s biggest spring trend. Actually, it was probably the biggest trend of the year, one that has stuck around and likely won’t go anywhere too soon. Because really, when is the classic duo not in style?

Top 5 Spring Pumps: The Higher the Heel, the Closer to God

The higher the heel, the closer to god? Absolutely! Just don’t tell your chiropractor I said that (tip: Pilates and yoga strengthen your core and back, making heels easier to maneuver). I’ve been wearing them since I was 17. When I graduated from high school, I tossed my flats and never looked back. Pumps were a part of my daily uniform at USC and continue to be today.

Top 5 Floral Appliqué Bags: Everything’s Coming Up Roses

…And tulips and daisies and lilies. Some people say the first day of spring is March 21st (and technically, they are right). Others say it’s when new buds have returned to the trees. But I say it’s when a fresh crop of blossoms hits the shelves by way of my favorite accessory.

Top 5 Totes of Whimsy: Get In On the Joke

Blame it on Bambi! Totes have become way less serious as of late, and I love it. Whether the sense of caprice is delivered through the flirty print or unique shape, the message is clear: lighten up. For every stoic, somber, monochrome tote, you ought to have one that makes you smile, or even laugh. What’s the big deal? It’s time to have some fun with your big bags.

Fendi Large Bi-Color Leather Clutch: It Takes Two to Tango

Feeling bi-curious? Not in that way, silly! I’m thinking more along the lines of a super-chic shoulder bag inspired by the unified yet starkly contrasted beauty of the old black and white cookie. (To quote the prolific Jerry Seinfeld, “I love the black and white. Two races of flavor living side by side in harmony.”) Sure, I’m being tongue-in-cheek about the baked good, but there’s nothing ironic about my love for this two-toned bag.

Fall 2014 Trend: Fur Bags

We’re never surprised to see fur grace the Fall runways, but the number of fur bags this season is off the charts. From Donna Karan’s shaggy style (her 30th anniversary collection was all about movement) to DVF’s trim shoulder bags, black seemed to be the shade of choice, with Vera Wang also throwing her noir beaver shopping bag into the ring.

Fendi 2Jours Tote Bags: A Lesson in Geometry

Everyone has the same bags these days – the Célines, the Givenchys…you know which ones I’m talking about. I’m guilty as well but am quite tired of seeing my bags on everyone. In fact, I was just talking to my friend Bryan Boy about this. We love to shop together, but lately there doesn’t seem to be a bag out there that hasn’t been A) worn to death or B) sold at the outlets for 90% off.

Givenchy Easy Bag: Transitional Essentials

The bag’s name says it all – easy. That’s exactly what we’re looking for as we transition out of winter and into spring, shedding a new layer each month. This Givenchy bag is just what is needed for this in-between period when one moment it’s freezing and the next, sunny.
