Seoul’s New Bag Museum: Handbag Heaven

Why didn’t I think of this?! Not only is this a museum full of bags – the museum itself is a bag! The mastermind behind this grand palace is Kenny Park, the CEO of the Korean bag supplier for Marc Jacobs and other top designers, and all I have to say to him is thank […]

Five Essentials: eBay Edition

We are so excited to partner with eBay, my late-night addiction and secret spot for snobby scores. Even more fun than buy-it-now shopping is surfing the auctions! It’s such a thrill to witness the last few minutes of an auction in real time. I have a system: I place an early bid on an item, […]

Hèrmes Jewellery-Bags: The Rose-Gold Rush

One year ago, the peerless – but often geometry-obsessed – Pierre Hardy submitted his sketches for the Hèrmes Jewellery-Bags, and the jewelers’ reactions were less than positive.

Weekend Bag Dreamin’: Hermes Medor Clutch in Alligator

Olsenmania: It Takes Two to Make a Thing Go Right

They have been spurring and standing up to trends for years now (despite the fact they’re only 25), and I am currently major style-crushing on the Olsen twins. Their look is effortlessly laidback yet calculated to accentuate their petite frames (yes, I do feel kinship due to our mutual height – or lack thereof!). I […]

Splurge vs. Steal: Hermès Picnic Kelly vs. Mark Cross Manray Wicker Satchel

Just in time for prime picnicking season, it’s the battle of the basket bags! Naturally, Hermès’ sweet, springtime adaptation of the Kelly is any bag snob’s park-and-field dream. Released last year and topped with a barenia leather flap, it’s got all the chic fixings of the classic Kelly, lightened up with impeccably woven wicker and […]

Burn, Birkin, Burn…?! Francesca Eastwood Burns Birkin

My friend the Recessionista on Twitter sent me this link of Clint Eastwood’s fame seeking 19 year old daughter burning a crocodile birkin on TMZ and it was all I could do not to scream. I get the shock factor, I get that money can buy you anything (except, apparently, CLASS). But this is ridiculous! […]
