All hail Mulberry! After endless incarnations of the Bayswater, I am thrilled to discover Spring 2013 spotlights a standout bag collection from the British brand. With “English-country heritage” and a “sorbet summer palette” acting as Emma Hill’s primary inspirations, a spectrum of upbeat colors, from warm apricots to yummy caramels thawed the stage, which was […]

Reese Witherspoon Carries Fendi: Mad for Monogramming

How to make a sought-after bag even more special? Look no further than today’s muse Reese Witherspoon, who took her Fendi 2Jours Elite shopper, accessorized with an Irene Neuwirth necklace and Jimmy Choo sunglasses, out to lunch in LA on August 17th.

Mulberry Tassel Bag: Alexa’s New Look

I’m loving everything about this satchel, except the tassel. Too bad it’s called the Tassel bag. Unfortunate choice of name, and detail, aside, I’m all for Mulberry’s latest confection of leather, buckles, and studs.

Top 5 Grunge-Inspired Bags: Live Through This

WWD informs us that Grunge is back in time for fall. I did it the first time around– when Kate Moss was a mussed-up young thing dating Johnny Depp and Courtney Love was rocking one torn-up baby-doll dress after another. It was the 90s, I was in college and finding myself. I was all about […]

Best Summer Whites: Ride the White Wave

Winter whites make for a nice pick-me-up, but let’s be real: there’s no white better than one of the warm-weather persuasion. It’s the shade that’s made to enhance tans, offset contrasting hues, and announce to the world a new phase has arrived. Especially now. From buttery creams to crisp washes to the palest of bleach, […]

Top 5 Easter Pastels: No Bonnet Required

Spring is the time for things to blossom, and that includes my love of pastels. Now that the most uplifting season is officially here, it’s time to welcome it with pastels galore!

Top 5 Wild Wallets: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

We give our plight for the right bag so much attention, the search for an equally stunning wallet often goes by the wayside. Think of your wallet as the wild little sister to your tote or top-handle: it may be completely different, but it should still be complimentary. And perhaps more outgoing. When you carry […]
