All month I’ve been dressing in pink and highlighting friends and celebrities who are doing the same in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so of course, Jennifer Garner caught my eye in this fluorescent Dior. Being a Bag Snob, though, the shiny Roger Vivier Maxi Boite de Nuit clutch got my attention almost as quickly!

Hedi Slimane has proven he can make just about anything cool, including sheer tights under shorts, as seen on Saint Laurent’s Spring ’15 runway, and logo-punctuated clutches. But I am not into guns as accessories, and even the guy who had the brashness to drop the “Yves” off the company name can’t convert me.

Fendi is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to their flirty, often smile-inducing plays on critters and creatures, and now they’ve made the move from monsters to abstracted incarnations of actual animals. This might be too cutesy, but come on, it is pretty darn cute. Moreover, it’s kind of irresistible.
