The SAG Awards: And the Bag Award Goes to…

At last night’s SAG Awards, Naomi Watts was sheer perfection with barely there makeup and a bold red lip. Her old world glam Marchesa gown and elegant Ferragamo clutch made her into a modern screen goddess. And I was so happy that Jessica Chastain went back to McQueen. Her gold-embroidered Oscars gown last year was such a standout, and … Continue reading The SAG Awards: And the Bag Award Goes to…

Top 5 Winter White Bags: Let It Snow

There’s not much snow this year, so I guess we have to make our own! I always worry about keeping white bags clean, but if you’re careful, they’re a great change of pace from the usual. Pick one up for a graphic black and white look, or go completely festive with some red or green … Continue reading Top 5 Winter White Bags: Let It Snow

Top 5 Military Bags: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style

With Veterans Day just this last Sunday, I have the armed forces marching through my brain. They have always known the secret to classic convenient design, and you don’t have to go on a top-secret mission to steal the look! Military style structure and army green define these patriotic bags (we’ll leave the hefty duffels … Continue reading Top 5 Military Bags: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style

Demi Moore x Ferragamo

I’ve been a huge fan of Demi Moore since the 80s, so happy to see her out and about again! Loving her arm candy, too. No, no, not a new beau– a gorgeous bag! Salvatore Ferragamo brown and taupe leather tote with gold gancio hardware detail to be exact. Have to admit I was surprised … Continue reading Demi Moore x Ferragamo

Gucci vs. Ferragamo: Old-School Face-Off

I spy with my snobby eye…two bags that look like they were separated at birth! I’m loving the Gucci 1970 reissue ($2,650), but it looks just like Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoulder bag ($1,625). Both are flat silhouettes with that distinctive gold hardware detail at the corners. Gucci is all about the seventies this spring (mixed with … Continue reading Gucci vs. Ferragamo: Old-School Face-Off

Salvatore Ferragamo Puts the Edge On: Brigid Bag and Evy Clutch

This is definitely not my mother’s Ferragamo – the cardigan with grosgrain placket and gold buttons paired with flats that have that big bow on top. Finally, the brand is showing 21st century edge. These new styles prove Ferragamo got with the times and came out of their cave, and maybe it was best they … Continue reading Salvatore Ferragamo Puts the Edge On: Brigid Bag and Evy Clutch

Salvatore Ferragamo Bonaria Pebbled Tote: A Brand New You

Ferragamo is good for a lot of thing but you don’t really think of them when you’re looking for something cute. Especially bags! Yes, I give the brand a hard time about their “maturity” level, as in way too much, so I am pleasantly surprised by this girlie and way adorable classicly shaped tote. The … Continue reading Salvatore Ferragamo Bonaria Pebbled Tote: A Brand New You

The Five Essentials Featuring Samantha Yanks

I meet the coolest people on Twitter, many of whom have become my IRL friends (that’s social media talk for In-Real-Life). One of them happens to be Samantha Yanks, the Editor-in-Chief of Gotham and Hamptons magazines. Samantha, who started out as an accessories editor for Vogue, was formerly the Fashion and Accessories Director for Niche … Continue reading The Five Essentials Featuring Samantha Yanks

Salvatore Ferragamo “Emidia” Leather Flap Bag With Whipstich Detail: The Summer of Love

Girls, I think I just found my next bag: Ferragamo‘s brown leather messenger with whipstitch detail and Gancini hardware. The ever-classic Ferragamo tends not to conjure up images of wild youth, but this has the ruggedness of a saddlebag and the easy feel of something the most glamorous girl at Woodstock would have carried. The … Continue reading Salvatore Ferragamo “Emidia” Leather Flap Bag With Whipstich Detail: The Summer of Love
