How to Take Care of Your Precious Exotics: The Dos, Don’ts, and Musts

There is nothing worse than pulling out your most treasured exotic-skin bag to find it dry, cracked, or peeling – or worse yet, all three. A very wise woman once told me that our designer bags are like fine cars: they need tuning regularly.

Nancy Gonzalez Birdcage Minaudière: She’s So Fly

I know why the caged bird sings! We have not been the biggest proponents of kitsch, but that’s really only when it is orchestrated in all the wrong ways. This is so beautifully crafted and yes, so darn adorable that I can’t resist.

Nancy Gonzalez Small Framed Mink Fur Clutch Bag: A Fur Foray

Nancy’s foray in to new exotics is as exciting as the bags themselves. When the queen of crocodile takes on a new (and arguably equally decadent) material, you take notice…

Casual Friday: Exotic Backpacks

Okay, pricey exotic backpacks aren’t exactly casual, but they’re the perfect middle ground for Snobs who want to get the cool girl look without dressing like an actual schoolgirl.

St. Patrick’s Day Green Bags: Don’t Get Pinched!

According to legend dating back to Boston in the 1700s, if leprechauns (or your prankster friends) see that you’re not wearing green on March 17th, they’ll pinch you! To avoid unsightly little bruises, I recommend one of the Emerald Isle-hued options below. My husband’s maternal grandfather was 100% happy go lucky Irish, and his spirit has me in the mood to celebrate.

Food-Inspired Bags: Taste This

While I consider myself both a Bag Snob and a Food Snob, I never thought the two would come together in quite this way. The results are hit or miss. Chanel, for one, did the gourmand well with steaks that were probably the most imaginative bags we’ve seen from the brand in years. I also fell for Nancy Gonzalez’s handwoven croc wicker apples and pineapples.

Top 5 Floral Appliqué Bags: Everything’s Coming Up Roses

…And tulips and daisies and lilies. Some people say the first day of spring is March 21st (and technically, they are right). Others say it’s when new buds have returned to the trees. But I say it’s when a fresh crop of blossoms hits the shelves by way of my favorite accessory.
