It was rather hard to focus at Victoria Beckham’s show this morning. I had the good fortune of being seated directly across from David and the adorable kids. But alas, no amount of Beckham-clan cuteness could successfully distract me from such an incredibly elevated collection. Victoria’s theme: the “embodiment of a modern and sophisticated spirit,” and she delivered it in spades.
The single best tote of 2013, aka Victoria Beckham’s Liberty bag, now comes in miniature form – petite girls everywhere rejoice! Victoria told me she named her newest style after her niece (lucky girl, how I wish I had a posh aunt armed with chic bags). I previewed the Quincy in person with Victoria herself last month and had to be patted down upon leaving, as I tried to take off with all of them.
With the Polar Vortex finally fading into the distance (fingers crossed, anyway), it’s time to start gathering our summertime essentials. Go frugal or splurge! Surprisingly, it doesn’t make much of a difference here. There are tons of affordable options for your warm weather adventures. Which set do you prefer?
Calf hair is as luxe as any skin out there – and it’s the exotic you don’t have to feel guilty about (unless you’re an animal lover, that is). Tactile and touchable, soft but not too plush: I love the unique texture, especially as winter approaches and smooth leather and suede start to look commonplace.
