Top Fanciful Wallets-on-Chains: Chains of Lust

Lately, I’ve been carrying around my wallets-on-chains more than any other bags, especially while traveling. It’s so liberating to know you require nothing more on your shoulder than your cell, ID, a bit of cash, and a credit card or two.

Top 11 Bags of Texture: Reach Out and Touch Me

Texture is a word that comes up a lot when talking bags. Smooth, grainy, rough, pebbled, furry, plush, soft, rugged…there are endless varieties and almost as many ways to describe them. But some bags out-texture the rest, so to speak.

Top 5 Bold Graphic Bags: Get the Picture

Going bold is always something we should all strive to do. Pushing out of your comfort zone, even just when it comes to getting dressed, almost always pays off. If you’re squeamish about getting a little too adventurous with your outfit, look to an out-there bag with brash graphics. Wearing a standout bag is much easier for more timid snobs to handle, since there’s more of a physical disconnect (read: you’re not say, zipped into it).

Top 5 Morning-After Bags: Working a Double

The best times are often unexpected: once in a while, a night is so good it takes you right into the next morning. Lo and behold, the sun is up and you’re still in your cocktail attire.

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.
