3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Overalls: Underexposed

I haven’t worn overalls since I was 8 years old (they were green corduroy and I wore them everyday with my roller skates). I don’t usually think it’s a look that everyone can pull off but in leather these 3.1 Phillip Lims seem more grown up. Unless you’re under 20, though, steer clear of the […]

Largest Accessories Auction Ever: Hermès Heaven

Fact: Birkins are better than a 401k. They’re seriously the best retirement fund you could have. The classic bags easily liquidate at current retail, and since prices increase regularly (in 2001, a 30cm Birkin cost a mere $4,500 – now it’s at $8,700), you’ll literally be pocketing extra money (not that I would ever sell […]

Lego x Hermès Birkin?!

This is adorable! Ok, so it’s sort of fake but for once I will actually enjoy myself with Legos instead of pretending I don’t want to stick my head in a toilet (have you tried building 1500 piece Star Wars aircrafts?!). At $400 it’s pricey for a toy but considering it is a functioning bag, […]

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. All maintained that a true hybrid of bag-jewelry could not be done. But done it has been, and so brilliantly at that. The accessories designer has succeeded in […]

MYHABIT.COM- Fashion’s Night Out Vintage Bag Sale

Are you excited for FNO tonight? I will be working in NYC (filming for the massive China site– plan to shop online on before I brave the city streets (internet shopping on FNO is an excellent idea if you’re not into crazy crowds!) For FNO, the addictive shopping site is hosting a special […]
