Each fall designers present us with a huge new selection of boots to line our closets with – Chelsea style, knee-highs, stiletto booties in suede, calf hair, moto-quilting…Since it’s easy to go overboard with your credit card in hand, I’ve narrowed the list down from lusts to musts.
Ahhh, Wednesdays! AKA “Hump Day,” or as some like to call it, “WTF Day.” Instead, I prefer to sidetrack myself from the weekly grind (and the rut that comes with it) and think of Wednesday as my favorite day of the week to indulge in a new favorite bag.
My first Prada bag was a nylon backpack with gold chains. I wore that thing everywhere, even to class (a student needs a backpack, no?). I was so obsessed with these bags that they were one of the main topics of conversation with my girlfriends every day.
When it comes to bucket bags, the pendulum swings back and forth on the age-old shape, from petite and sweet to bigger and boxier to as streamlined possible. However it’s approached, the bucket bag is not an easy style to carry off. The key to success is in keeping it small (to avoid awkward slouching and general sloppiness). Now Prada has revamped the style for 2014.
