Tina and I designed the Snob Essentials Runway backpack for countless scenarios, and one of our favorites is travel. Whether you’re hiking around a tropical island or perusing the streets of Italy, this bag helps you get on your way, with no-muss, no-fuss. Who wants to spend time planning your outfit when you could be out exploring or shopping?
Let’s be real: we all want to have it all, and we demand the same standards of all-ness when it comes to our bags. While no one bag can serve every purpose for every occasion (cue the Five Essentials!), the perfect bag has a little bit of everything you need.
From cocktail-printed clutches to rivets patterned in the shape of stars, we’ve come to expect splashy bags from Jimmy Choo, but if this white tote is any indication, the brand does simple chic just as well as it handles the statement stuff.
The best prize at last night’s MTV Movie Awards came from none other than Narciso Rodriguez. In line with Jess’ eco-friendly empire, he made this black, crocheted clutch from aluminum soda bottle tops and named the bag after her! It’s no wonder why this woman would inspire designers – she’s a perpetually stylish muse.
One of the best things about the end of winter is that it heralds in the arrival of a wide variety of covetable strappy sandals. My pick is a little navy number from Jimmy Choo – blue shoes are as versatile as jeans, and with these golden straps, the Tolka will go from day to night without skipping a beat.
Not too big and not too small, structured but not overly so, and neutral enough to go with all your favorite staples: You can count on a daily bag to be practical, but rarely do they inspire excitement. Not these five. More than just an afterthought, these daily bags have great designs and details to spare, so you won’t find yourself making a compromise while following the KISS rule: Keep It Simple and Stylish.
Spring is the time to come out of your shell (or more likely, your cocoon of coats), leaving your shyness behind, and there is nothing shy about these crystal-encrusted shoes. Certainly nothing comfortable either, but the girl who wears these couldn’t care less about that. They’re hefty in weight and in price.
