I appreciate a great animal print just as much as I appreciate a good frugal find, so when you put two of my favorite things together, you can imagine my excitement. You should be psyched, too!

We’ve been brushing our hair all our lives…but have we been doing it the right way? Minimizing time spent getting ready is a goal we all have, but quickly brushing out the tangles is the bare minimum you can do for your locks.

While you’re busy cramming in last-minute barbecues and trips to the beach, keep in mind one beautiful thing about the end of summer: it’s time to shop for fall! And at the top of my autumnal list (other than bags, of course) are booties.

I love a good hobo bag, but they're kind of like black holes. If you’ve ever rifled through one of your adorably soft and slouchy hobos in search of keys or a ringing phone (which is soon to be a missed call), then you’ll know what I’m talking about. Prada has the answer with their Daino hobo bag.

When it comes to identifying and celebrating fashion's "it" girls, no brand seems to be as knowledgable as Mulberry, whether they're designing bags in tribute to these icons (remember their beloved Alexa Chung-inspired messenger?) or collaborating with them (as was the case with last year’s Cara Delevingne collection).

The original Balenciaga motorcycle bag, or more officially known as the Arena Classic City bag, had me up quite a few nights in search of different variations back in 2000. I had the ready-to-be-distressed leather version. I had the less-common pony hair. Hell, I even had it in denim and flannel.
