Top 5 Wallets-on-Chains

Top 5 Wallets on Chains: Chain of Command

I lost my wallet during NYFW (it was stolen at an event out of my mini bag right in front of me!). My ID, all my credit cards, and not to mention the my entire cash supply for Fashion Week: gone. Kelly gave me one of her company credit cards (we share bank accounts!), but how do you fly home without an ID? Luckily, a good Samaritan found my wallet on a sidewalk, with the ID and cards strewn all over the place (cash gone, natch).

Top Winter Wonderland Clutches

Top Winter Wonderland Clutches: Karlie Kloss Shows Us the Great White Way

It’s hard to commit to a white daily bag. We worry they’ll get dirty (because they inevitably do). Is a big white bag hard to carry off in the winter? Even if it’s as pure as the driven snow, the answer is yes!

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Small Flap Shoulder Bag

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Small Flap Shoulder Bag: The Dark Horse

Color trends come and go, but at the end of the (increasingly short) day, there is nothing chicer than black on black. If you had any doubts about the power of monochrome ebony, look no further than Nancy Gonzalez. Her small flap shoulder bag captures the epitome of all-black appeal, in my opinion.

Top Snow-White Tigers

Top Snow Tiger Print Bags: Siberian Dreams

Leopards and tigers and prints…oh my! My animalia obsession has just reached an all-time high. There was a time, not even too long ago, when animal print was considered downright outlandish and at times, tacky. Especially leopard (which I, for one, love). Blame sitcoms and their over-the-top stars, like Fran Drescher of The Nanny and Peggy Bundy of Married With Children!

Sneak Peek of Nancy Gonzalez’s Fall 2013 Ad Campaign: The Feast

Nancy Gonzalez’s Fall 2013 ad campaign is one of the most breathtaking I’ve ever seen! The sumptuous textures and colors of her bags pop out beautifully against the minimalist background. When I spoke with Santiago about the gorgeous look, he told me, “I am inspired by the dark, rich splendor and the highly refined execution and symbolism in Flemish still life paintings.”

Top 5 Heavy Metal Bags: Show Your Mettle

While there was once a time when minimalist, hardware-free bags were the ultimate in chic, the tide is now turning and with it comes a wave of heavy metal embellishments. From camo crystals to weaponized clutches, the trend is armed and ready for battle. Which decorated warrior do you think will lead the pack this season?

Nancy Gonzalez Two-Tone Crocodile Clutch: I’ve Got the Blues for Black

There’s not a bit of logo or lettering to be found, but this clutch has my name written all over it. The color palette! The exotic skin! The roomy size that’s perfect for day and the sleek shape that translates right into night!
