Top 5 Baby Blue Bags: Baby, It’s You

My bedroom is painted the palest shade of blue, a most quietly calming hue. Not only is baby blue the ideal choice for my boudoir, it’s one of my favorite colors, especially when it comes to handbags. Don’t be fooled by the innocent associations…

Top White Bags With a Kick: White On!

There is nothing like a crisp white bag for summer. But I tend to like my bags with some kind of twist, and black trim doesn’t just make for a high sense of contrast. Done right, it adds the right amount of urban edge to classic, polished white.

The Best Bags of Milan Fashion Week

The Best Bags of Milan Fashion Week: From Italy, with Lust

Trust the Italians to bring a sense of magic to the runway. While the level of craftsmanship is always elevated, it’s their flair for the nonchalantly fantastical that makes the Milan runways a standout.

Top Chunky Heels, Part Two

Top Chunky Heels, Part Two: Which is the Clunkiest of Them All?

I’ve long been an avid proponent of the platform. As chic as single sole pointed toes are, nothing is more comfortable than platforms, and when you wear heels as often as I do (all the time), a little element of comfort goes a long way.

Classic Bags that Never Go Out of Style: Save Now, Splurge Later

We may want every new bag that hits the market, but the fact of the matter is that we couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) actually buy every single one. It’s all about picking and choosing. While the occasional trendy piece is a justified indulgence, what you really want to invest in are the classics.

Top New Old-School Florals: Out of the Garden

What goes around comes around, and if the latest crop of florals is any indication, Laura Ashley has come back around. When I first laid eyes on Prada’s Prada’s newest garden-party print, I wasn’t sold – and I’m still not – but since then, it’s become clear that hyper-feminine, seriously romantic floral prints are making a comeback.

Top 5 Military-Green Bags

Top 5 Military-Green Bags: In the Army Now

I love green in all its many incarnations, from forest to moss to lime to mint, but it’s military that’s perhaps the most versatile of them all.
