Trend Alert: Cool in Culottes

As something that many of us wore in grade school, culottes (French for “women’s wide trousers”) don’t always win admirers in this day and age. My husband, for instance, is not a fan, but as for me? I’m loving my culottes moment.

Top 5 Brown Shoulder Bags: Flaunt Your Tan

Givenchy Clutch in Gold-Tone Brass: The Golden Ticket

How awesome is this?! I can’t contain my excitement, induced by the curious nature of this clutch. Givenchy almost always knows how to turn up the heat for evening, but this enigmatic piece of hand candy is in a league all its own. Is it a flask? Is it some sort of cutting-edge, high-tech gadget?

Givenchy Obsedia Small Leather Crossbody Bag: Obsessing Over the Obsedia

A warm welcome back! This reissue of the Obsedia is absolutely amazing. With a color combo that couldn’t be more spot-on, Givenchy has unleashed a fresh stunner, without cooking up a new style. I love it when a true neutral gets perked up with a jolt of bright color…
