Top 5 Perfect Polka Dot Bags: Crazy, Spotty, Cool

Right now, it’s all about polka dots on everything from sundresses to stilettos, but you know I have a special place in my heart and closet for bags. A smattering of spots can serve a real purpose. Take a boring, serious bag and add the right kind of dots – whether magnified, hardware-decked, perforated, or perfectly wacky – and bam! Suddenly you’ve got something cheerful and delightful for summer.

Bicolor Bags: The Double Act

More of a good thing is a great thing, and in this case, that’s color! The best combos are the most drastic contrasts, especially when one hue is classic and simple, while the other shocks the senses out of their winter doldrums – black and hot pink, black and metallic gold, etc. Pastel may be the unofficial tone of spring, but that just makes these surprising double acts all the more exciting.

Fall 2014 Trend: Fur Bags

We’re never surprised to see fur grace the Fall runways, but the number of fur bags this season is off the charts. From Donna Karan’s shaggy style (her 30th anniversary collection was all about movement) to DVF’s trim shoulder bags, black seemed to be the shade of choice, with Vera Wang also throwing her noir beaver shopping bag into the ring.

I’m wrapped up in fall thanks to NYFW, but let’s not jump the gun too soon. Now is the time to enjoy all of those soft, springtime hues, and this year my favorite is yellow! Sometimes sallow, sometimes mellow, but here it’s vibrant and full of life.

Top 5 Polar Vortex Totes: Whatever the Weather

Today was my first full day in NYC for Fashion Week, and god is it cold! It’s supposed to snow on Sunday, which got me thinking about which bag to carry (shocking, I know). You don’t want to risk ruining supple leather or precious metals, so what do you turn to?

Top 5 Everyday Bags: The Daily Show

Not too big and not too small, structured but not overly so, and neutral enough to go with all your favorite staples: You can count on a daily bag to be practical, but rarely do they inspire excitement. Not these five. More than just an afterthought, these daily bags have great designs and details to spare, so you won’t find yourself making a compromise while following the KISS rule: Keep It Simple and Stylish.

Marni Metallic Patent-Leather and Satin Shoulder Bag: Flash of Genius

I love a good, simple shoulder pouch for the spring, so that I can be breezy and effortless like the season. But instead of a boring overly-simplified pouch, this has details that take it so much further. The metallic patent flap in silver gives a flash without getting too blingy for the day. The hardware has the slightest industrial feel for fun so it isn’t so serious.

Marni Striped Faux-Leather Shoulder Bag: Are You With the Band?

Sometimes a bag isn’t downright ugly or outright atrocious. Sometimes a bag neglects to give me butterflies or the creeps. Sometimes a bag is just “eh,” merely enough to make you shake your head, shrug, say, “Huh,” and move on. Well, almost just move on.
