Valentino My Rockstud Dragon Embroidered Flap Bag: Divas and Dragons

For Game of Thrones fans, this ornately embroidered Valentino bag will make you feel like the Mother of Dragons. As for everyone else, it will make you feel just plain chic, and that’s enough to get me obsessing!

Five Bags to Avoid: Fringe Overkill

A little fringe is fun and on-trend. But not all fringe is created equal, and these fringe bags rival Animal the Muppet in their levels of crazy moppy-ness. But hey, maybe you like that kind of look. And maybe you’ve got a little bit of Animal in you yourself!

Stella McCartney Heart Falabella Faux-Suede Crossbody Bag

Stella McCartney Heart Falabella Faux-Suede Crossbody Bag: Be Still, My Heart

A lot of people, myself included, love a Stella McCartney crossbody bag just because it is guaranteed to be so easy. You don’t have to worry about messing it up, since it’s not genuine skin, and the Falabella’s trademark chain detail dresses things up, even when you’re not.

Top 5 Manic Monday Bags: Multi-Texture Madness

This week, I’m all about bags that make me want to reach out and touch them – and then keep carrying them well into the fall season. A little bit of texture can go a long way, and a lot can go even further.

Top 7 Fall Booties: These Boots are Made for Shopping

While you’re busy cramming in last-minute barbecues and trips to the beach, keep in mind one beautiful thing about the end of summer: it’s time to shop for fall! And at the top of my autumnal list (other than bags, of course) are booties.

Prada Vitello Daino Medium Pocket Hobo Bag

Prada Vitello Daino Medium Pocket Hobo Bag: Black-Hole Sun

I love a good hobo bag, but they’re kind of like black holes. If you’ve ever rifled through one of your adorably soft and slouchy hobos in search of keys or a ringing phone (which is soon to be a missed call), then you’ll know what I’m talking about. Prada has the answer with their Daino hobo bag.

Snob Essentials Emmy Bag: Emmy Award Winner

We designed the Emmy with our good friend Emmy Rossum in mind. She is so sweet and talented but also full of spunk and style. Naturally, her namesake bag has many of the same qualities. Made for the girl who innately knows how to put herself together…

Bags That Won’t Go Away

Bags That Won’t Go Away: Balenciaga Arena Classic City Bag

The original Balenciaga motorcycle bag, or more officially known as the Arena Classic City bag, had me up quite a few nights in search of different variations back in 2000. I had the ready-to-be-distressed leather version. I had the less-common pony hair. Hell, I even had it in denim and flannel.
