Cate Blanchett x Tod’s Sella Bag: Saddle Up

My love affair with Tod’s bags dates back to college. Why the lifelong obsession, you ask? I learned at a very young age that the beauty of a Tod’s bag is in its deceptive simplicity and that a girl needs that one chic bag she can take literally everywhere and wear with anything to be well-dressed.

Tod’s for Ferrari Loafers: Earn Your Racing Stripes

My Tod’s driving moccasins are wardrobe essentials, but as comfy and classic as loafers are, they can start to look pretty boring after a while. Tod’s knows this, which is why they’re starting to do more and more collaborations with companies like Ferrari. While I’m not a big sports car fan (I drive an SUV, … Continue reading Tod’s for Ferrari Loafers: Earn Your Racing Stripes

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

Top 5 Flat Closed Toe Shoes: The Comfort is Secondary

Fashion can sometimes take a backseat in cold weather. Convenience becomes more of a luxury than style. In LA I love to slip on sandals, but even here it does get chilly and flip-flops make you look a little silly in the winter (even if the sun is shining!). It’s hard to find fun closed … Continue reading Top 5 Flat Closed Toe Shoes: The Comfort is Secondary

Cate Blanchett Carries Tod’s: Her D-Styling is a D-Light

I probably don’t need to tell you the reason Cate’s geek-chic look (which she flaunted as she shopped in NYC before a performance of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya on July 23rd) worked so flawlessly is her choice of bag. The Tod’s D-Styling Bauletto – in exotic electric purple, no less – is about as luxe as eye-popping carryalls … Continue reading Cate Blanchett Carries Tod’s: Her D-Styling is a D-Light

Tod’s Passante Patta Media Bag: A Safe Bet

Not all comment-worthy bags are embellished stunners or eye-catching showstoppers. Sometimes a classic girl needs an everyday bag – and here it is. This shoulder-to-top-handle bag is what you would expect from Tod’s these days: a nice basic, even if it’s not breaking any boundaries. Over recent seasons, my love for Tod’s has waned, mainly … Continue reading Tod’s Passante Patta Media Bag: A Safe Bet

Tod’s Snakeskin D-Bag: D-Licious

It’s D-Day! Or is it Italian Day? Between Gucci and Tod’s, this snob is having a major “molto bene” moment. From their Spring 2012 collection, Tod’s candy-colored D-Bags are so sweet my tooth aches! But no cavities here – this is the kind of sugar I’m happy to overdose on. Many of my friends just … Continue reading Tod’s Snakeskin D-Bag: D-Licious
