Miu Miu Leopard-Print Calf Hair & Python Satchel: Combo Platter

Show me a bag that’s quintessentially Miu Miu and I’ll show you a bag that exudes quirk and glamour in equal measure, thanks to an unfailing way with wacky combinations that somehow work.

5 Essentials Bags for Jane Birkin (and the Rest of Us Wannabes)

Obsessed with Jane Birkin? I’m talking the person, not the bag. I am, and there’s no shame in it. You can have your Kardashians and Jenners, but I will forever revere the style of the one and only Jane Birkin. For over half a century, she’s dressed to please herself…

Elie Saab Ruffled Crepe Jumpsuit: Jump for Joy

People may be excitedly unpacking all things short and sweet from their closets, but I’m just not ready to give up my jumpsuits for summer. I love these.

The RealReal: Consigned, Sealed, Delivered!
