3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Messenger and Lanvin Box Clutch

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Messenger and Lanvin Box Clutch: Spot On!

Polka dot or animal spot? Painterly circles or graffiti-inspired triangles? Or something else entirely? Honestly, when something looks this good, it doesn’t really need to be defined with a precision-perfect touch.

Reed Krakoff Gallery Leather Shoulder Bag

Reed Krakoff Gallery Leather Shoulder Bag: Gallery Girls

Reed Krakoff is significantly streamlining his already-stripped-down shape here, but that doesn’t mean this bag is without remarkable details. A pure rectangle of clean leather sets the landscape for zippers, complete with uniquely shaped pulls, to make for an appealing detail, as well as a hardware-inspired buckle on the shoulder strap.

Balenciaga Cable Strap Small Shopper Bag

Balenciaga Cable Strap Small Shopper Bag: The Cable Guy

It’s all about extremes. When it comes to Balenciaga’s most recent totes, I wasn’t into their chunky, giant chain straps, so instead I’m slowly falling for the flipside: this leaner, meaner shopper tote with razor-thin straps.

Frugal Friday

Frugal Friday: Marc by Marc Jacobs Round the Way Girl Messenger Bag

I’m on a crossbody kick right now. No bag is more essential during the summer months than this one, and Marc by Marc Jacobs is the go-to brand for Frugal Snob options. With a total of four pockets inside and out (including the must-have exterior compartment for your phone), this messenger is very practical, but you wouldn’t know it from the fun, citrusy colorblocking.

Charlotte Olympia Excess Baggage Perspex Clutch

Charlotte Olympia Excess Baggage Perspex Clutch: Baggage Claim

I am completely obsessed with vintage steamer trunk suitcases, but the idea of carrying one throughout terminals at the expense of my back, arms, shoulders, and basically my entire body is very slim. Now I can have it all. The look of what I want in adorably compact form. This is impossibly cute, completely novelty (Charlotte Olympia, after all), and not actually useful on a daily basis.

Delpozo Fall 2014 Collection

Delpozo Fall 2014 Collection: State of the Art

Whimsy. Enchantment. Ethereality. When it comes to the most elusive of qualities – and especially when it comes to the Fall 2014 collections – Delpozo makes achieving them look effortless. They remind us it’s in the details, and theirs are intricate.

Jewelry to Buy Yourself

Jewelry to Buy Yourself: Be Your Own Valentine

Never wait for a man to buy you what you can buy yourself. Don’t get me wrong – I love to receive thoughtful and sentimental jewelry from my hubby, but if there’s something that I just must have, I go ahead and get it. That way there’s no need to subtly drop hints and heighten your expectations, only to find that your hints we in fact too subtle. Show yourself some love come February 14th with this Valentine’s Day jewelry!

Mario Badescu Almond Scrub

The mosquitoes this year in the Hamptons are AWFUL! I’ve been really good about wearing bug spray, but last week I was at a friend’s barbeque in Amagansett and her house is realllly country, so there were more bugs than you can even fathom. I sprayed my body everywhere that skin was exposed. I figured […]
