This structured Bertoni top handle tote possesses a great classic shape and features a cool trio of three-dimensional stripes, but that’s not what got me hooked here. I’m really interested in the bag’s most unique and amazing closure.

Balenciaga Padlock Work M Leather Tote: The Front-Runnerhttp://www.snobessentials.com/2014/11/balenciaga-padlock-work-m-leather-tote-front-runner.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2014/11/balenciaga-padlock-work-m-leather-tote-front-runner.html#comments Tue, 25 Nov 2014 15:00:47 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=66224

From ordinary to extraordinary: your average tote, the one featuring an oversized pocket on the front, has just become a covetable, eye-popping bag that’s just as great for work as it is for play. Practical as it may look, the front pocket is usually mostly decorative, meant for nothing than frivolous things you don’t mind getting lost. But Balenciaga’s open tote has the reverse situation going on.

I recently attended the Katy Perry concert with my 10-year-old. Despite being the oldest person there amongst screaming preteens, I had the best bag in the whole place-- one that left me hands-free to eat my cotton candy with one hand, while pumping my fist in beat with the other. In the spirit of being unencumbered and embracing the music, here are the top bags for concerts!

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, the consequent countdown to Christmas is officially in full gear. One of my favorite holiday gifts is the "Fruit of the Month" delivery from our neighbors. Each month, a lovely box of in-season fruit arrives at my door. But I think this monthly gift just beat it. Possibly by a landslide.

One can never go wrong with a boho-chic hobo. Well, maybe you could go wrong with one on the red carpet or at a black-tie affair, but let’s not split hairs. When it comes to daily life, a good leather hobo is always laidback, inherently comfortable, and can even add an element of effortless glamour. Like this one.

I have to admit: I hadn’t had this much eyeliner on since high school. But unlike back in high school, this smoked-out eye looks so natural and beautiful, not harsh. Throw out any preconceived notions you might have that lining your entire eye will close it up and make your peepers appear smaller. Actually, when lined and smudged properly, eyes not only look bigger, they have substantially more depth. And let’s not even get into the glow on my skin!

You could spend years searching for a pair of knee high boots that look good on you and still come up bare-footed, but I’ve finally met my match! What’s so great about these is that they’ll flatter just about any Snob (and you know knee highs are not one style fits all). Most tall boots make my petite legs look stocky.

A fluffy, bubble gum pink shoulder bag is the kind of cute, frivolous thing you’d have expected to see Alicia Silverstone dangling off her arm in Clueless. Is it functional?

How many unworn bags sit in your closet, mocking you, serving as reminders of money wasted? You’ve tried selling at consignment shops, but the issue with that re-commerce model is that you have to wait for someone to actually buy your bag before you see any cash.

Forget trendy black and white for a minute. There’s nothing more luxurious - or timeless - than the juxtaposition of perennially chic black against rich, melting gold.
