I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the ultimate all-American holiday than with a roundup of looks from some of my all-time favorite all-American designers!
Spring has officially sprung and with it, a whole new crop of bags! I’ve recently discovered a love of gardening (okay, more like planting herbs, not actual flowers – I’ll leave that to the professionals), placing Tory Burch’s white laser-cut tote at the top of my list.
In the tenth year of her namesake brand, the always-wearable and ever-relatable Tory Burch gives us another collection of staples. She’s also achieved a slice of global domination, what with over a 100 boutiques and an instantly recognizable logo. Luckily, the trademark was nowhere to be found on this runway.
There are few times I’ll set aside my mini bag, but I’m always willing to do it for an adventure, whether it’s surfing, skiing, or my favorite – shopping. And since adventures can sometimes be rough and tumble (sample sale, anyone?), you want a tote that’s not going to break your heart when it gets a scratch – a.k.a. one with a sweet and low price tag.
The rich texture of calf hair makes it the perfect addition to fall accessories, and we’re seeing plenty of it with the animal print trend. But what about colorful calf hair? There was a time when I thought a blue fur bag was unequivocally tacky and belonged on Sesame Street. But tastes change…
Leave it to Rachel Zoe to make sequined sweatpants look sophisticated. Her casual California cool never comes without an air of elegance. We saw the usual suspects (jumpsuits and maxi dresses) as well as some welcome newcomers (long denim skirts and polished laser cut jackets).
