The Not So Basic Black Skirt: Ruffle Your Feathers

Lately I’ve been taking my couture with a twist. Your must-have LBDs shouldn’t be basic and neither should black skirts. And it’s all about the skirt this season, so choose wisely. Start with a pencil shape – this is an essential that will serve you well for years and years. Just make sure it’s not the same one every other woman in the office is wearing!

Going Back in Time: Iconic Bags of the ‘90s

This was the decade of the it bag. I don’t mean to say that there weren’t iconic bags before – the term “it bag” was coined in the ‘90s! And there were many (yes, Dior is on this list twice – no, I won’t apologize). Which of these styles did you carry?

Top 5 Winter Hats: Icing on the Ensemble

When it comes to hats, more is never, ever enough, so I’ve found extra fall options guaranteed to enhance any collection. Best of all, they keep you chic and warm, transitioning your look perfectly into winter. Some will go with just about everything in your wardrobe, while others are meant to be the central component of an outfit.

Reed Krakoff Academy Bionic Crossbody Bag

Reed Krakoff Academy Bionic Crossbody Bag: Stand Shoulder to Shoulder

Now that Reed Krakoff is free of his consuming Coach duties, I am confident his line will continue on as a strong contender in the snob world. He already has all the A-listers on his side, and he will likely gain a few more with this deliciously laid-back addition. I’m loving this new style, even though it’s not quite as versatile as I would like it to be.

Going Back in Time: Iconic Bags of the ‘70s

The ‘70s were coined as the “Me Decade,” and this emphasis on individuality brought about a wide range of styles from that of groovy hippies to DVF’s iconic wrap dress to glam rock David Bowie. One movement defined bag design more than any other, though – feminism.

Going Back in Time: Iconic Bags of the ‘60s

I may not have been around for the Swinging ‘60s (I’m not that old!), but there’s a lot to love about the generation – Twiggy, white go-go boots, Balenciaga, the Beatles, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour, and of course, bags! This was the decade when women finally broke out of the tweed jacket/chain bag combo and embraced their personal style.

Top 5 Daily Bags: Bare Necessities

You know you need it, and you know the one you probably already own is worn to bits. Despite what many designers seem to think, most of us just want an easy daily bag to throw on our shoulders without a moment of thought.

Design Through the Decades

Design Through the Decades: The 1980s

When it came to 1980s fashion, bigger was always better. Head banger bands like White Snake and Skid Row fueled this trend with video after video of girls rocking huge hair and writhing on cars in nothing but skimpy bikinis and white stilettos. As a high schooler, I wasn’t allowed to have pumps (I couldn’t even wear my high-tops or jellies except on the weekends).

Kate Moss and Olivia Munn Do the LBD Justice: Black is the New Black

The LBD is a year-round staple, that much we know, but getting the summertime LBD just right isn’t always the most effortless feat.
