Best Open Bucket Tote Bags: Weekend Warriors

When you’re one the move, there’s nothing better to carry than an open bucket tote. I bring them out for serious shopping trips to avoid wasting store bags. It’s eco-friendly and chic – just imagine the envy you’ll inspire with a bright bouquet of flowers or a freshly baked baguette sticking above the bag’s edges. […]

Top 5 White-with-Gold Bags: Power Couples

Nothing makes a statement like the combination of pristine white and glittering gold. A powerful pairing (especially when the white is bold and the gold comes in refrained doses), it speaks of jet-set living, leisurely days, and heated-up nights. And what’s not to like about that?

January Jones x Rochas Leti Bag: Let It Out

After you’ve taken in the preciousness that is January Jones’ adorable dancing toddler, I’d like to draw your attention to her gorgeous white Rochas bag. In a slouchy green top, jeans, and boots, the actress is far more casual than her perpetually dressed to the nines Mad Men character Betty. But the Spring/Summer 2013 Leti […]

Store your subtle metallics for another season. Summer’s motto is the brighter (and yes, the gaudier), the better.

Top 5 Textured-Leather Bags: Snap, Crackle, and Pop

Texturized, crackled, and aged leather is all the rage. It’s true – you can actually pay extra for the distressing to make your new bag look well-worn, which is a look that I love. My friend once told me that in the ‘80s, her mother would stomp her new Birkins in the grass to make […]

Best Beige Clutches: Caught Blushing

There are few things more charming than catching someone blush, and finding the pale color grace bags is equally enchanting. Like the blush that rushes into your cheeks when you’re excited, this color is quite a tease – there’s just the tiniest hint of pink. For the most part, the shade is really nude or […]

Rochas Pre-Fall 2013 Collection: The Rich Life of Rochas

Dubbed the “Designer for the Young” by French Vogue, Marcel Rochas was known as much for his couture designs as his love of sports, travel, and cinema, and well, he was literally the youngest designer of that time. Growing up in the ‘80s and ‘90s, I remember Rochas as a perfume worn by glamorous aunties. But […]

North South Bags: A Tall Order

We’ve seen plenty of north south shopper totes, but with the addition of a top handle, everything is changed – and not for the better. An elongated shape draws the eyes in, but keep in mind that it also drowns your belongings to unreachable depths – and surely at the least convenient moments. The subtly […]
