I knew I was in for a real treat when I walked into the Park Avenue Armory, the long-time site of Marc Jacobs shows, and surveyed the scene: glowing pink gravel, a Pepto-Bismol tornado-dropped pink house inspired by The Wizard of Oz (a film Marc happens to love), shocking pink, pink, pink!
This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!
The grunge-glam princess is all grown up! I’m obsessed with the upbeat razzle-dazzle of Marc Jacobs’ Resort 2015 collection…
I’ve started writing a monthly column for HarpersBazaar.com that I hope you’ll all be tuning in for! My first subject was spring cleaning, or rather, spring organizing (it’s a lot easier to organize than to give away beloved bags!). At the start of a new season, I store the pieces I won’t be wearing in boxes, and bring out all the others I’ve been waiting to carry.
We’ve maybe finally left the snow behind, but that just means that it’s time for April showers. No worries! With these boots, you’ll be singing in the rain. I woke up to a downpour in NYC this morning, and honestly, I’m kind of excited about it. See? Shopping really does make things better. Here are the best boots at every price point…
Bags are the only accessories that can truly multitask (other than shoes, which make for pretty handy bug exterminators when the occasion arises). The oversize pouch is the “it” clutch if there was ever such a thing, which is exciting because that allows you to justify investing in a luxe laptop case (finally!).
Freezing rain and slush-filled sidewalks aside, Marc Jacobs’ Fall unveiling (the first without a second gig on his agenda in 14 years) was the best show of the week for me. Billowing clouds reaching down from the ceiling instantly set a mood of freewheeling lightheartedness. And why not? After well over a decade at Louis Vuitton, the man is free.
