Marc Jacobs Bag

Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart to Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag: Crossbody My Heart

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 power of the top-handle bag is more potent than ever, and channeling the classic elegance of Grace Kelly has never been easier to achieve.

Top 5 Summertime Crossbody Bags

Top 5 Summertime Crossbody Bags: Stop, Strap, and Roll

When it comes to the summer, I need two kinds of bags: I either require a really giant tote for travel, the beach, pool, and so on, or I just want a small, easy crossbody bag for strolling, sightseeing, and perusing museums.

Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning: Rotating Your Handbags for the Season

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.

Top 5 Convertible Bags: Multitask Force

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!).

Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Collection: Oh, You Pretty Things

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.
