Art 101: Beyond My Favorite Look of the Season

This is an exciting time in fashion: currently, pastels and primary colors, two families that couldn’t be more different, are coexisting in harmony and making an equal amount of impact in the trend department.

Marni Belt Bags

Marni Embellished Mesh Belt Bags: Eighties Babies

The fanny pack has gotten super fancy of late. So fancy it’s received a new moniker, renamed the “belt bag” for fear of being unfashionable. But too bad: I still call it a fanny pack.

Spring White Bags

Spring White Bags: A Fresh Slate

Nothing puts me in the mood for spring-cleaning more than a new bag. It’s motivation to put your older ones up for sale to make a little money for other must-haves! These are so fresh they have me wanting to pack away all my winter sweaters and coats, and break out the delicate colors and fabrics. Which of the white bags has you excited for this next season?

It feels great to strike out at night with a flashy clutch; it’s that extra sparkle (literally and figuratively) that makes you feel special – and like a special night is in store. But make sure your awe-inspiring accessory is tasteful.

Marni Lambskin Tote Bag

Marni Lambskin Tote Bag: Triple-Pocket Threat

While you might think that this black Marni tote was designed for super organized Snobs, I’m a complete mess and feel like it was made for me!

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

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.
