5 Bags Every Woman Should Have by Age 30: The Magic Number

When we’re in our twenties, a lot of us enforce a few life goals to hit by the time we’re 30. Whether it’s a fast-accelerating career, dream wedding (and a dream husband to go with it), or a baby on the way, 30 is the age when we feel things ought to get “serious” in one way or another.

5 Essentials Bags for Jane Birkin (and the Rest of Us Wannabes)

Obsessed with Jane Birkin? I’m talking the person, not the bag. I am, and there’s no shame in it. You can have your Kardashians and Jenners, but I will forever revere the style of the one and only Jane Birkin. For over half a century, she’s dressed to please herself…

Top 5 Brown Shoulder Bags: Flaunt Your Tan

I’m not opposed to a light dusting of bronzer to highlight your own natural glow, but there’s only one kind of tan skin you need this summer, and it doesn’t require any exfoliation beforehand. Instead, it comes in the form of lovely leather bags.

Top 5 Striped Beach Bags: To the Beach and Beyond

Espadrilles, bikinis (or well-designed maillots), floppy straw hats, and cutoff jean shorts all obviously speak of summer to some degree, but if you ask me, there’s nothing that symbolizes the season like striped beach bags.

Naomi Watts x Givenchy Top: Stars for Stripes

Naomi Watts is flawless. I’m sure that makes getting dressed an easier process, but credit where credit is due and credit is DUE for this Jimmy Kimmel Live outfit.
