The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

Right now, the overarching trend in bags is everything optimistic and fun. It’s not the shape that makes a bag a must-have anymore. Instead of specific silhouettes, it’s all about the vivacious and expressive. Think details that catch the eye for bags that are personality-driven and tell a story – so you can tell your own story with your bag. What’s not to love about that?!

What do Rihanna and Madonna have in common other an affinity for French kissing their BFFs? Cutler and Gross! The British eyewear brand has quickly become a celebrity favorite, and with their sophisticated, lightweight glasses, it’s no big surprise.

You May Be Spending Too Much on Exotics

Top 5 Faux Skin Bags: You May Be Spending Too Much on Exotics

We all want the real deal, but sometimes a stamped leather will give you the same thrill without the hefty cost. In my experience, croc is the look designers recreate best, but snake is up there too (it’s worth noting, though, that snake is often the least expensive exotic if you are wanting to break into authentic exotics at an affordable price point).

Victoria Beckham Spring 2016 Collection Bags: The Big Time

Still on the fence about mini bags that hold nothing and are perhaps better suited for fourth graders? Not to fret. We are headed without hesitation back to bigger bag territory, if Victoria Beckham has anything to do with it. But don’t think larger means more somber and serious.

NYFW Trend Report: Spring into Action!

Here we are again! Back in New York City and the energy is palpable, from the searing late-summer sun to the mad dash between Lincoln Center and Milk Studios (and everywhere in between). But it’s what’s going on inside that’s really stirring up our spirits…

Victoria Beckham Money Python Shoulder Bag: Show Me the Money

We know Victoria Beckham for one thing, first and foremost. (No, it’s not for her RBF, of which I’m thoroughly simpatico. Nor is it for her hot husband. And of course it’s not for her spicy past.) It’s for her understatedly chic sensibility, which comes through in her own line as much as it does her personal style.

Tomasini Paris ET10 Suede Tote: It’s Hot to Be Square

There is something immediately beguiling about this tote. Sure, it’s the multi-dimensional, tile-like texture. But it’s not that simple. It’s evident that Tomasini Paris has drawn inspiration from the architecture and style of the excess-loving ’80s.

Miu Miu Madras Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag: Fly Off the Handle

I can’t handle this handle – it’s so fantastic! Reminiscent of retro satchels and briefcases, the Madras is a grown-up move for Miu Miu, and it’s a turn that is entirely welcomed. Especially as we look ahead to the fall season, which always calls for more polish and structure.

The Only Ways to Wear a Belt Bag: Hitting Above the Belt

Summer freedom, and the carefree outings that come with it, is upon us. I just spent the last week traveling and no matter how light my bag is, at the end of walking for about 10 hours, my shoulders, along with everything else, start to ache like never before.
